Vegetable Rights Violation

Have you seen those paperwhite and amaryllis bulbs they sell this time of year? Well, did you ever stop to think how horrible they are? These bulbs are being sold like slaves, in stores no less, to people who will take them home and kill them. But they won't kill them before they force them to bloom out of season, for no better reason than that human beings like to look at their reproductive organs. And after they are done blooming, it is the rare bulb indeed that will be allowed retirement in a quiet garden bed. If they survive this disgusting operation and are permitted to live, they won't be able to bloom again for a year and a half.

This sickening violation is the shame of our plant-abusing country.
