6 Reasons Why Humans Suck.
1) Humans don't care enough about the factory farming of animals.
Most food suppliers, religious groups, media, government organisations etc. do not try to provide alternative food to factory farmed meat and dairy products. There are at least ten times more recipes, restaurants, takeaway shops, advertisement's and meat products sitting on the shelf's compared to non-factory farmed food.
People don't have to eat meat and dairy everyday yet no serious attempt is made to change our diets.
Billions of pigs and chickens are factory farmed every year.

2) Using animals for clothing and fashion causes unnecessary suffering.
Animal-free clothing alternatives are available for about the same price, yet humans still trap, farm, shoot or catch animals.
Belts, wallets, handbags, and shoes can be made out of other materials and are just as comfortable.
Shoes, wallets and belts do not need to be made from animals.
3) Companion animals are treated like consumer items.
Shops sell live animals like they were consumer items, especially if those shops are in large malls and rely on impulse purchases via pets in window displays.
Millions of dogs and cats are impounded and euthanised every year, yet the vast majority of breeders continue to breed without giving partial support to homeless animals.
There are plenty of young dogs and kittens available at animal shelters.
If you don't get an animal from a shelter at least check the parents environment to make sure the breeder isn't a puppy farmer.

4) Religious concepts are unreasonable.
Religion promotes beliefs that are unreasonable.
I was mediating and had a Zen teacher and my "enlightenment" became manic and psychotic. Buddhists claim that enlightenment exists yet try to find someone who is.
Other religions misdirect people even further than Buddhism.

5) Over-consumption of food and material items.
In many countries, food and material items are often throw out before they need to be.
Humans that over-consume are leading themselves to obesity, health problems, material junk, climate change and increased conflict over dwindling resources.
6) People have kids when they shouldn't.
Nearly a billion people are without adequate drinking water or are chronically hungry due to extreme poverty, yet people continue to create families in these areas.
Humans also still have kids even if they have hereditary problems, passing on life long difficulties like physical disability, intellectual disability or mental illness.
Too many people and not enough resources.
The Stork is the bird of war By Nina Paley.
My name is Andrew.
I had a regular childhood, education and job. I started volunteering in my spare time (rescuing dogs from animal shelters). I realised that pets seemed to get so much help, yet eaten animals suffer so much.
Humans are the problem, they didn't seem to care. I decided that Buddhism was the answer and it would result in people living in a more harmonious way. My plans failed grandiosely.
I couldn't help animals or change people so I tried a suicide by train. That failed and I am now an amputee.
I decided to create a website complaining about humans.
