Your living in someone else’s countryside are you not ?

But I am not a townie, nor am I mainland portugese, the two stereotypes least accepted here because they tend to look down their noses at Azoreans as similar people tend to in other parts of the world.
Never mind, hey.
On to the next thing you can dig up.

I am not a townie either but I don’t subscribe to the countryside snobbery about townies being somehow less aware .

We don't have a village idiot; we take it in turns!

I live in a small village and if it wasn't for incomers, the place would be dead.

I live in a village and townies would run home crying if they ever attended a traditional pig slaughter.

That’s not being a townie   that is being aware of cruelty
I know what it is for peasants  to murder the fifth most intelligent animal on the planet .
Cruelty in this day and age is nothing to crow about .

I wonder where humans would be placed on the intelligence list of pigs could create their own?

One look at the way we go to great lengths to kill ourselves (with weaponry) would probably put us way down outside the top 10x

Well said.    100%  agree. 

Indeed,  cruelty is nothing to crow about.

Slaughtering animals for food is not cruelty.

Slaughtering animals for food is not cruelty.

It is not that straightforward though.

It is how they are kept before their time comes,  how they are transported to the slaughterer,  and how they are treated at the slaughterhouse, too.

I have seen many reports on how these poor animals are abused, mocked, and terrified at the end.


Those who believe it is all nice and kind  need to wake up to reality.

But you don't hear of the vast majority that aren't mistreated.

Is that the reason you don't eat pork? Do you eat any meat? Or fish?
Pigs are friendly (humans bring them food, lots of it), but not nearly as clever as townies like to dream.

I regularly fish for predatory shoal fish like some Mackerel types (because one uses a set of about 8-12 feathers and not stinky bait.)
Once a clearly townie woman came up to me and told my I must kill all the  fish individually instead of throwing them in the bucket as is usual. I just ignored her. Fact is that predatory fish each kill countless fish themselves and they mostly do so by swallowing them whole and letting them slowly dissolve in their stomach acids. They are part of the food chain and ecosystem.

Vegan townies are particularly unwelcomed in the countryside, and they are ususally white.

As a teenager I worked on a cattle market.
If we had asked the pigs nicely to go into the ring, we would never have got them there!
