Ive posted about the dairy industry many times on my Facebook and got alot of abuse but also alot of support.
I find when you use the word "rape" people get touchy, even thought techically it is, you need to chose your words more appropiratly.
Ive been to a dairy, seen what happens, ive been to the cattle sales and seen unbelevible abuse towards cows and calfs, ive rescued dairy calfs that were heading to the slaughterhouse - Both Male and Female - 2 of the most recent rescued dairy calfs were both females and aged 1 day old and 3 days old >> here is a video of them http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kAsty38VnNg
People seem to get very touchy on the dairy, rodeo and horse racing topics. Best way to talk to people who argue about these topics is to show facts, figurs, videos ect. Generally when you ask for them to provide evidence there is none and they generally back off
