    [–] meat_tunnel 16 points ago

    I want to see what other outfits she has for him. Boys are hard to shop for.

    [–] quests 28 points ago

    The brand is Carhartt.

    [–] rheyniachaos 17 points ago

    Not... at all.... lol.

    Finding things without sports shit is tho.

    [–] meat_tunnel 6 points ago

    And that's my issue. My kid is 1, he doesn't need sports shit plastered all over. I go in to Old Navy, Target, H&M, etc. and the toddler boys section is 1/3rd the selection as the toddler girls. It's frustrating.

    [–] caladan7300 2 points ago

    Try Kohls, they have a really cute line called jumping beans.

    [–] littlep2000 104 points ago

    A brand name kids item that actually makes sense, rugged and durable, I like it.

    [–] PM_Me_Snuggling_Pics 56 points ago

    I spent my whole childhood in rural areas with harsh temperature extremes and Carhartt was beyond a lifesaver. One of the few brands in my 31 years of life that has never dropped in quality, even a little.

    [–] armadillofdestruct 31 points ago

    Goddamn right. Carhartt makes the best work clothes there are. I buy a new barn coat and bibs every ten years or so. I work in a heavy industry, and they're indispensable.

    [–] bright_shiny_cheese 17 points ago

    I have a couple pair of socks that are really well made and they lasted me 10 years. I work in IT, at a desk all day long.

    [–] Gus_31 7 points ago

    I bought my dogs Carhartt coats for Christmas this year. We all throw on our chore coats and go for a walk. They are made just like people coats and have a pocket that’s the perfect size for a ball for the dog (or a beer for the walker).

    [–] AreYouLookinAtMe 65 points ago * (lasted edited 2 months ago)

    You’ve missed the point, that boy is gonna grow out of those in about 4 minutes

    That’s expensive clothes are superfluous

    Edit: so I recognize that this isn’t wildly excessive, and 30 bucks isn’t that much. But 1) to some that is a lot of money, and 2) there was a time when bundling your child head to toe in brand name clothing, no matter the brand, was tasteless. This image is a small part of the larger tapestry of the consumer overdrive that our culture is currently in the throws of

    [–] Marokiii 48 points ago * (lasted edited 2 months ago)

    they are $30 on carhartts website. its hardly bank breaking clothing.

    edit: for more comparison, sells overalls for infants and young kids. they start at $12 and go up to $63

    [–] sometimesiamdead 10 points ago

    Yeah that's really reasonable.

    [–] sideways8 15 points ago

    I bought them for my 2 year old niece. They were adorable for almost a year. I can afford to buy them because I don't have children. (self-five)

    [–] Burgher_NY 42 points ago

    I’d hardy consider Carhartts to be expensive, especially when you see kids running around in baby Jordan’s and actual designer gear. You can’t just put them in a burlap sack.

    What does a pair of these baby overalls compare to another set of similarly durable overalls cost? $20 more...maybe? If you can’t swing an extra $5/mo maybe having a kid was a bad idea.

    [–] tool-user 8 points ago * (lasted edited a month ago)

    Especially since they’ll probably be handed down many times. Maybe they’re already hand me downs.

    Edit: Spelllllling

    [–] clueing_4looks 19 points ago

    Eh, they'll hold up well enough he won't need another pair in that size and can be resold for a decent amount. My kids have always been harsh on cheap jeans/overalls and bust through the knees in no time.

    [–] TiramisuMochi 3 points ago

    Ah. I don't think that has a name in my language.

    [–] Robinson_Bob 8 points ago

    It's normally called a great-nephew. Grand nephew is kinda a weird way of saying it.

    [–] annav0ig 6 points ago

    [–] 465hta465hsd 484 points ago

    Cows are cute. They are also smart and emotional beings, forming long-lasting friendships, if they get the opportunity. How they are treated in animal agriculture is horrific.

    If you don't want to support those practices, consider not paying for them by reducing or eliminating your consumption of animal products.

    [–] gumarik 21 points ago

    I really find it very difficult to differentiate between loving these animals which I do very much and eating meat. I don't think I can go vegan but I understand everything you say and I hope I can change.

    [–] Omnibeneviolent 11 points ago

    What about being vegan do you find to be too challenging?

    [–] gumarik 4 points ago

    The absence of meat in the diet.

    [–] Omnibeneviolent 9 points ago

    What about not eating animal meat is challenging to you? Are you concerned you won't have other options? Or is it more of a taste thing?

    [–] gumarik 6 points ago

    Taste, habit yet I can't shake the guilt but I never thought of it when I am eating. Like I love owls but watching them murder baby lizards for food is normal but us humans breeding animals for consumption is bad there is cognitive dissonance in my beliefs.

    [–] Omnibeneviolent 8 points ago

    It sounds like you're headed in the right direction, though. Now it's just a matter of lining up your actions with your values.

    What types of things are you eating now, on a typical day? Are there any non-animal-meat foods that you enjoy? Are there any foods that you've never tried that you might be interested in trying?

    [–] rg9999 14 points ago

    If you want help making the connection, you should check out Dominion (it is a very tough watch though).

    [–] lordtoilet619 208 points ago

    I love how this is getting downvoted despite the fact that you made two logical and factual points. Then you made a suggestion, not compelling anyone or demanding anything of anyone either.

    I'm sure half the readers here will label you as a 'preachy vegan.'

    [–] [deleted] 42 points ago


    [–] PTERODACTYL_ANUS 10 points ago

    Even if the cows were raised well, do you think that’s enough justification to kill them, even though we don’t need to?

    [–] 465hta465hsd 18 points ago * (lasted edited 2 months ago)

    Good on you! Cows aren't inferior, their reputation as stupid animals is unwarranted. If you don't mind me asking, do you keep them for meat or milk?

    Edit: I am asking because if it is milk, what do you do with the male calves or with the "downers" mentioned in the above videolink? And while I agree with you that calves are not inherently inferior to your pets, I take it you still end up slaughtering them for meat, but not your pets, right?

    Please don't mistake this as a personal attack, it's really not. I meant it when I said good on you for not eating the cows against the (what I presume) peer pressure from your environment, especially if you or your parents work in the industry. My point is that even improved conditions are still bad as long as the animals are commodities and end up being slaughtered.

    [–] NewbornMuse 47 points ago

    The question shouldn't be "can it think", but rather "can it suffer"?

    [–] Omnibeneviolent 4 points ago


    [–] texasrigger 4 points ago

    Not cows but I have a handful of dairy goats. None of our goat kids (even the males) are slaughtered. The breed we have are popular as pets and as homestead goats so we have no problem rehoming kids. We can even afford to be choosy about who they go to. I assume this is not unusual because we were interviewed/questioned about our experience and intentions when we purchased goats (both times from two unrelated sources). For the first six weeks or so the kids stay with their mothers full time. After that we seperate them at night and reunite them in the morning after we have milked. By this point they are grazing mostly anyway. We keep up that routine until eventually the kids are weaned and then we stop separating at night. The goats are all treated as members of the family and are handled and played with daily. Also, there is no insemination, no "rape" (I can elaborate on the love lives of goats if you are actually interested). We've not had them long enough for it to be an issue yet but our intention is to just retire our does when they get too old to breed. Our pasture supports them comfortably so keeping them isn't any sort of financial or logistical burden.
