This just came up on my dashboard:
“Asking vegans to respect your decision to eat meat is on par with asking feminists to respect sexists, asking Poc to respect racists and asking homosexuals to respect homophobes. It is ludicrous to think that difference in opinion warrants mutual respect, especially when the opposing opinion in question not only stands for everything you are against but also appropriates suffering, defends oppression and encourages the continence of exploitation.”
I am so angry, this is so disrespectful! I have no problem with vegans or vegetarians, I am friends with a few, but seeing posts like this one which is comparing most of the human population with those who are considering morally wrong. First off, it is not a decision to eat meat, it is a decision to not eat meat, humans are omnivores and us meat eaters are just being humans, we need the nutrients we receive from meat! I am in no way having a go at all vegans and vegetarians, just the people who accuse me of being in the same class as sexists, racists and homophobes. Just because you choose to not eat meat, does not make you better than people who do (again I repeat most of the human population) so please keep your disrespectful opinions to yourself.
