Sometimes its really hard to be a vegan.
Like, for example, when other vegans flaunt their privilege all over the place and refuse to recognize it. Or when they assert their own unquestionable moral superiority and try to shame non-vegans. Or when they compare the conditions of factory farms to the rape and murder of human women.
That stuff makes it really hard for me to want to call myself a vegan, or defend veganism.
Because, you see, the thing is veganism can be a big commitment. You really should understand this. It takes a lot of time and effort and often a lot of money. Some people cannot feasibly adhere to a vegan diet for any number of reasons. Other people simply choose to send their energies fighting other battles. Both of these things are perfectly okay. There are many good people who are not vegan, and there are many vegans who are not good people. You do not have the right to tell other people what they should/should not eat, it is none of your business. Yes, factory farms are bad and they do bad things. They are not, however, responsible for the very real rape and murder of human women and girls that occurs everyday. So let’s never compare these two things again and while we’re at it why don’t we also stop exploiting the suffering of women to give arguments emotional impact?
Yes, wonderful, good. I’m glad we had this talk.
All of these things.
OP, I love you.
THIS IS EVERYTHING I HAVE EVER WANTED TO READ EVER.
