haha agreed! I am somewhere in between. I love my fruits and veggies and all my healthy food but I will totally spend a day on the coach eating out of a container of coconut milk ice cream or down tons of vegan pizza. (:
Yeah I mean I feel like more than ever plant based diets really appeal to the stereotypical health nuts. I have come across tons of nutritionists and even medical doctors that have supported the long list of health benefits associated with such diets. Thanks so much for your input! (:
I appreciate your concern but if you did want to know more there are oodles of sources online that describe how plant based diets are easily as healthy and more often than not, more healthy, than diets that include animal products. (:
Believe it or not, I can care about and easily manage both things at the same time.
ahhh they are to die for!
Actually, this time last year I wasn’t a filthy blood mouth and even before then I was at least a vegetarian. The difference between me and people I refer to blood mouths is that even when I was a blood mouth I was open to learning about why eating animals products was ethically unjustifiable. I didn’t just try to justify my meat consumption. I just went vegetarian when I realized how the animals suffered. When I learned how animals suffered in the egg/dairy industry I didn’t try to make up some bullshit reasons why it was still okay. I went vegan. I call people blood mouths who try to justify something that has no true justification besides a selfish pursuit for pleasure. You’ll never see me referring to a omnivore who wishes to learn/open to the idea of a cruelty free lifestyle a blood mouth, or one who simply does not realize what they are contributing to.
- HEY, VEGANS – You care so much about animal rights, but what about the immigrants who pick your food?
- That's a good point. Unfortunately, there are abuses in many areas of the food industry. As a vegan, I try to minimize the amount of cruelty I'm supporting as much as possible. Animal products are inherently cruel, whereas produce is only circumstantially cruel. Consuming plants directly reduces the amount of resources used as well as unfair labor practices supported, since crops are also cultivated to feed farmed animals, and there are human abuses within factory farms, slaughterhouses, and tanneries in addition to the required violence against nonhuman animals. It's also good to eat seasonally and support local growers when available. Food justice is very important and definitely has a place within the animal rights movement, and more vegans should become aware of that.
- BLAH BLAH, if you REALLY CARED, you'd care more about HUMAN BEINGS and eat a cheeseburger. HYPOCRITE.
- But what about the immigrants working in the factory farms and slaughterho–
- STOP PREACHING AT ME. VEGANS ARE SO JUDGMENTAL.
Also, after this really stupid fight I had with a complete idiot carnist yesterday I had someone contact me privately and ask me more about the ethical reasoning behind veganism. It made everything worth it and I am so happy and hopeful now. The best part is that all of the geniuses’ final comments were about how they wish people would just shut up about veganism. I will never shut up about veganism. Just the fact that we had an argument about it on a public forum meant that someone became curious about it, asked more about it and may eventually be vegan one day, who knows. SUCK ON THAT.
Wahhdayall think? Yay or nay?
Guess what, motherfucker, you literally did.
