Can We Stop with the Bullsh*t Excuses about Veganism?
I read and listen to so many people who have cognitive dissonance due to their diet and lifestyle, and hear them desperately attempting to justify how and why they choose to consume the flesh and fluids of sentient creatures.
I stand firmly behind this statement: if you eat meat, consume dairy, or buy into the fur or leather industries while being aware of what goes on behind the scenes, then you are knowingly and willingly paying to support widespread systematic abuse and cruelty toward animals.
Some might say this is extreme, but what I perceive as extreme is the amount of suffering, trauma, and violence that millions of animals emotionally, mentally, and physically endure every minute of every single day—particularly when it is not necessary.
Vegans speak out because animals don’t have voices; they cannot protect themselves, or stand up and describe the trauma they are subjected to just so that someone can have a bite of their flesh, drink their milk, or wear their skin.Maybe I find this more unbearable because I have learned about the plight of animals, and now find it unbearable! I cannot turn a blind eye, nor can I silently stand by while people try to say that vegans “should shut up and stop preaching,” so that they can devour the body parts of animals in peace.
After all, as so many meat-eaters explain, it’s their choice, so who am I or anyone else to stand in their way?As I’ve said before, and I’ll say again as many times as I need to: just because something becomes “normal” does not make it right and okay. All that has happened is that so many people have now grown accustomed to their carnivorous diet that they have become desensitised to the fact that they are actually eating what was once a beautiful living, breathing creature that wanted to live just as much as we do.
So enough with the excuses!
