Comedian and journalist Stella Young is tired of people telling her she’s an “inspiration” just for getting up in the morning. In a hilarious, hard-hitting, and thought-provoking talk at TEDxSydney, she explains why.

A gorgeous baby chick, young enough to still have blue eyes, is captured in this photo while waiting in a dirty transport crate for her brutal, untimely death. She will be roughly grabbed from the crate, a process which sometimes results in the breaking of limbs that were already under incredible stress due to unnatural body weight, and shackled upside-down by her legs on the assembly-line, regardless of whether they are injured or not. She will then have her head pass through a bin of electrified water, which is intended to paralyze, but not stun. Then she will come by the “sticker” who will attempt to slit her throat, despite her being fully conscious. Now, even though it must be noted that there are issues in all slaughterhouses regarding stunning practices, often as a result of the increasing pressure for speed on the kill-line, according to current ‘welfare’ laws, the industry is not even required to try to stun birds before a knife is used to slit open their throats. If she is lucky, the “sticker” will have good aim, and after gasping and struggling, she will bleed out. However, with the expectations for faster kill-lines, as just mentioned, there are often mistakes made while the birds’ throats are being cut. If she was not fully affected by the electrified water, as is common since the terrified birds may quickly move their heads away from the bin, and thus fights and flaps her wings too much, the “sticker” may miss her throat either partially, or entirely, meaning that she will then still be conscious and entirely aware while she is submerged into the “de-feathering” tank, as happens to millions of birds each year. If this is the case, only will she finally be freed from the torture of her exploited life and incredibly cruel death, when she slowly drowns and/or is burned to death in the boiling water.

No person, not matter what their species, should ever have to experience such terror, pain, and suffering; and yet, it happens to billions of birds each year; each one having been as lovely and unique as the individual depicted in this image. Please choose veganism today in her honour.

I am having a really bad brain day. I just feel like I am a huge burden on everyone I know. I still don’t feel settled in Birmingham and I just don’t feel like I fit into everything here. I need someone who can come round and give me a cuddle when I feel like this. I fucking hate spending the whole day by myself and I just feel really out of control of everything and like I really annoy everyone. I’m too anxious to hang out in big groups and social stuff makes me feel really exhausted but being alone is horrible too. I just need some people who I feel comfortable sharing this stuff with and who will give me a cuddle when stuff is hard.

Got a lot of feelings about this girl.
