Anonymous asked "all vegans are entitled white kids. i mean just LOOK at the religions that have a tradition of animal rights activism - hinduism, buddhism, sikhism, jainism. everyone with any common sense knows that those religions are white-central and their followers are the richest people in the world. which is why i, as a rich white person, will NEVER become vegan. the simple act of not paying people to kill animals is just plain racist."
You took the words right out of my mouth.

itsjustayoyo asked "Okay but you can be against animal cruelty and not be a vegan. Like I eat meat but if I saw an animal being abused then I would put a stop to it. Not all animals suffer cruelty before they are killed. Some live happy and healthy lives."
Which part about killing someone needlessly doesn’t qualify as cruelty? Or are cows, pigs, and chickens no longer considered animals?
If you SEE animal abuse, you’ll stop it, but it’s fine if it’s happening somewhere far away behind closed doors? And you’ll even pay for it to happen because you get something out of it?
Also, let’s say hypothetically that farmed animals do live “happy and healthy lives”. (They don’t, just fyi. But for argument’s sake let’s pretend that they do.) Why does treating someone with kindness for a few years mean that you’re justified in killing them? How can I say I care about someone’s wellbeing if I’m planning on slitting their throat and eating their flesh?
If someone claims to be against animal cruelty and is not doing everything within their power to abstain from animal products, they’re a fucking hypocrite. I don’t care how much you love your dog or volunteer at a shelter or donate to nonprofits…you can’t pick and choose which animals are deserving of love just because it’s convenient for you. You’re not against animal cruelty…you pay for it with every meal. Fuck off.
Doesn’t it seem a bit suspicious that ALL the people who you so vehemently fight against all of a sudden become your bust buddies when veganism is mentioned?
Don’t you find it strange that you disagree on everything but when talking about non human rights you diligently interlock arms and march forward to defend the continuance of non human oppression?
Don’t you find it A TEENSY BIT PECULIAR that you share the same views on veganism as people who have blogs dedicated to disagreeing with every single other view you hold?
Just take a itty bitty second to reflect on this.
Then come to me and tell me why it is that you and bigots become allies when non human animals rights is the topic.
I’ll wait <3
