Oh I love you, I feel like a lot of people act like if you care about animals or don't eat animal products that means you prioritise them over humans or don't care about human rights which is ridiculous. Why shouldn't people shown compassion towards people AND animals they aren't mutually exclusive?
You know, they’re actually the opposite of mutually exclusive, eating animals is really terrible for the human race in terms of environmental and economic impact, you can’t pretend caring about human welfare but not animal welfare is coherent because they’re two separate things because in our ecosystem they are just so intertwined…
If you want to say fuck the environment, fuck pigs, cows, humans and the lot of us that’s your prerogative and good luck to you, but if you’re serious about being conscientious about humanity you just can’t ignore these sorts of problems without logically falling in some sort of denial. I’m not saying EVERYONE BE VEGETARIAN because of course it’s not for me to dictate what people consume, but refusing to even confront the issue is, in our global climate that’s hurtling towards environmental disaster, a bit like sticking your head in the sand.
