If you're not vegan, how can you call yourself an “animal lover”? How is your “love” for animals reflected in your decision to exploit, torture and kill them? And if by “animal lover”, you simply mean that you love dogs and cats, tell me: objectively speaking, what exactly is the difference between the animals you love and the animals whose flesh and secretions you eat?
If you're not vegan, how can you call yourself an “environmentalist”? From a practical perspective, environmentalism makes no sense without veganism because animal agriculture (AKA animal SLAVERY) happens to be an environmental disaster. More importantly, from an ethical perspective, how can you say you're a protector of the planet while you're choosing to inflict violence upon Earth's most vulnerable inhabitants? Doesn't that sound messed up to you?
Finally, if you're not vegan, in what way are you an advocate for justice and equality? I've already asked you to explain the difference between dogs and cows, but I can, and will, go further: assuming you're GENUINELY involved in any human rights causes, tell me, what exactly is the difference between the sentient beings whose rights you're fighting for and the sentient beings whose rights you're choosing to violate? Speciesism is no different from the forms of discrimination you claim to oppose. It's easy to call yourself an “intersectional activist”, but the reality is that you're choosing to promote equality only insofar as that doesn't conflict with your palate pleasure and convenience. That doesn't sound very “intersectional” to me.
Basically, if you're one of those people who say that vegan food isn't “real food”, all I can tell you is that I'd rather eat “fake food” than have fake values.
