“Isn't man an amazing animal? He kills wildlife by the millions in order to protect his domestic animals and their feed. Then he kills domestic animals by the billions and eats them. This in turn kills man by the millions, because eating all those animals leads to degenerative - and fatal - health conditions like heart disease, kidney disease, and cancer. So then man tortures and kills millions more animals to look for cures for these diseases. Elsewhere, millions of other human beings are being killed by hunger and malnutrition because food they could eat is being used to fatten domestic animals. Meanwhile, some people are dying of sad laughter at the absurdity of man, who kills so easily and so violently, and once a year sends out cards praying for "Peace on Earth.”—Old MacDonald’s Factory Farm by - C. David Coats
Hey, guess what?
Vegans don’t give a flying fuck about your “diet.” We don’t turn to other vegans and say, “hey, maybe you should lay off the french fries.” Because you now what? That’s none of our fucking business.
But when your habits contribute to the death of over 150 billion sentient, feeling, conscious creatures each year, you can bet your ass we’ll have something to say about it. And no, that doesn’t mean we’re forming prayer circles around the deli section, or slapping burgers out of your hands. It means we’re exercising free speech to inform you of the impact of your decisions.
Your rights end when another’s begin; a personal decision isn’t personal when it directly affects someone else.
Oh, and no, plants are not sentient. They react to stimuli but lack the ability to give it connotation, but nice try.
