Watch: Nappy-Wearing Man-Baby Seen on Streets of London
Some thought it was hilarious, while others looked disturbed – this is how Londoners reacted to a grown man rocking a nappy, riding a tricycle, playing with his food, and asking shocking favours:
The funny video aims to highlight the absurdity of drinking milk into adulthood. It urges viewers cringing at the exploits of this man-baby to ditch dairy “products” and go vegan, insisting, “It’s time we grew up.”
Like all mammals – including humans – cows produce milk for their babies. There’s something truly sinister about artificially inseminating a cow and forcing her to give birth, only to tear her beloved calf away from her so that the milk that nature intended for him or her can be consumed by humans – and adult humans, no less. Humans are the only species on the planet to drink milk as adults – and the only one to drink the mammary secretions of other animals.
Cows’ milk is designed for calves – it enables them to gain hundreds of kilos in a matter of months. But for humans who consume it, it’s high in fat, a common trigger for allergies, and linked to an increased risk for many illnesses.
The dairy industry fuels cruelty to animals on a huge scale. On dairy farms, even organic ones, cows’ babies are torn away from them year in and year out, and they endure this nightmarish cycle until their bodies are exhausted and no longer produce enough milk to be commercially viable, which is when they’re sent to slaughter.
What You Can Do
If the thought of giant man-babies roaming the streets makes you cringe, consider the reality of consuming cows’ milk and try eating (and drinking!) vegan instead. Order your free copy of PETA’s colourful vegan starter kit, which is packed full of recipes, tips on making the switch, and much more.
