Anonymous said: This thing about being vegan is what most of us try to do is educate people on WHY WE EVEN BECAME VEGAN( usually they ask), And they automatically think we are attacking them for not being vegan.
non vegan: so why are you vegan?
vegan: because I love animals and believe they should have rights so I don’t support or condone industries that exploit, abuse and murder them for profit
non vegan: YOU CAN LOVE ANIMALS AND NOT BE VEGAN UGH STOP ATTACKING US AND SHOVING YOUR BELIEFS DOWN OUR THROATS JUST BECAUSE WE AREN’T VEGANS SERIOUSLY THIS IS WHY PEOPLE HATE VEGANS YOU ALWAYS ACT SO HIGH AND MIGHTY LIKE YOU’RE BETTER THAN US IM GOING TO GO EAT LIKE TEN HAMBURGERS NOW SO IN YOUR FACE HMMM BACON SO STOP ATTACKING US RIGHT NOW GOSH
I know a lot of vegans pride themselves in the fact that they don’t “force” their “beliefs” on others. What does that even mean? That you don’t hold a gun to people’s heads and force them to eat tofu?
This is the problem: a vegan talking about animal rights is always…
This mentality infuriates me! I really hope someone schooled her on her twisted logic.
So long as you’re respectful, your decision to be vegan doesn’t affect anyone. But when you ignore human rights issues, you have a problem.
Carnists ignore human rights issues and animal welfare issues to boot.
Never forget those “immigrants” are picking the food your cows, pigs and chickens are eating; AND the food you are eating; the food your pets eat; the materials for the clothes you wear; the plastics and metals you use. Vegans aren’t free of leaving a slavery footprint, yours is just far larger and sinks far deeper because you do not care about anything or anyone but you. When you point the blame at a minority issue the majority of that issue seems to drop out of focus, doesn’t it?
The 1 to 2% of vegans on earth are not doing anything remotely close to the harm you are doing. At least vegans are trying.
Sorry to burst your cognitive bubble of dissonance.
I’ve never understood this. Like yeah, you’re doing a million times more harm to the planet, the people, and the animals but yeah sure ignore that, let’s point fingers at the people who are at least trying. ???¿?
Stop acting like white, rich kids came up with veganism.
Stop erasing the history of PoC cultures that had—and still have—major animal rights movements, even if they didn’t use those terms to describe it.
Stop magically forgetting about Buddhism, Sikhism, Jainism, etc. in order to invalidate modern vegans because you’re mad that they pointed out the harm inherent in killing unnecessarily.
Stop it right now.
Warning labels should be on jugs of cows milk.
The only way to save endangered species is if we save their habitats and combat the reasons people kill them. Instead of supporting zoos, we should support groups that work to preserve their environment and work to stop poaching. Many animal organizations can/have effectively stimulated public interest in animals without imprisoning them. Conservation and education are noble ideals, but animals should have the right to live their life as it was meant to be lived.
