Today’s award goes to some truly daft “vegan activists” in Spain.
This is the moment two vegan activists separate chickens from cockerels because they ‘don’t want the hens to be raped’.
The video was released by the Spanish vegan group Almas Veganas (Vegan Souls), based in Girona in the north-eastern Spanish region of Catalonia.
They published the video on Twitter where it has been viewed 570,000 times.
On their Twitter page, the activists describe themselves as ‘anti-speciesist’ and ‘transfeminist.’
. . .
In the footage, the two activists can be seen smashing eggs on the ground because ‘they belong to the hens.’
The vegans then reveal that ‘we separated the cocks because we don’t want the hens to get raped.’
In another video, the activists said that they based their decision on ‘the notion of consent.’
The vegans add: ‘The hens do not want to be mounted and always try to escape. They are sometimes seriously injured by the cocks’ claws as well.’
They also say the hens ‘are genetically modified to make them lay more eggs’ and they want to ‘prevent them from reproducing.’
‘Either you are vegan or you help to finance animal slavery. Eating animals is fascist,’ they added.

One struggles to find words to describe these imbeciles. They’re so out of touch with nature and the natural behavior of poultry that they may as well be on a different planet to the rest of us. Oh – and what about lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender chickens? Why didn’t they differentiate between them and heterosexual chickens, so that they smashed only the hetero eggs? That’s discrimination! (Although, as far as the vegans are concerned, it’s probably only a poultry offense . . . )
