Humane Myth is a community of former farmers, animal rescuers, animal sanctuary founders, educators, and artists working to create a just and nonviolent future.
From their website:
Currently, both the animal-using industry and some animal advocacy organizations are propagating the idea that it is possible to use and kill animals in a manner that can be fairly described as respectful or compassionate or humane. We believe that this “Humane Myth” misrepresents the realities of animal use, and cultivates a positive image of activities that are neither just nor kind nor sustainable.
The purpose of this web site is to correct the misinformation that is associated with the Humane Myth, and to inspire a form of working for the peaceful transformation of our society that fully respects the inherent dignity and worth of animals and people alike.
This site is not published with the intent of offering final answers or telling anyone how to think, but with the intent of raising questions that will encourage thoughtful debate. And one of the more important purposes of a debate is to air many points of view, so that the deeper truth, which is larger than any one of our individual points of view, can emerge. We encourage as many people as possible to participate in public discussion of the issues explored by this site, and we believe that the more people become informed and involved, the better the outcome will be.
