“Don’t compare animal abuse or factory farming to ANY form of human oppression! It’s belittling and racist!“
Yeah sorry, but as a black woman who is directly descended from slaves/ the slave trade and has to deal with the ripple effect, modern day institutionalized racism, sexism that’s always racist and racism that’s always sexist, every single day, I have every fucking right to make whatever parallels to those practices I see fit. It only bothers you because you refuse to see animals as valuable and worthy, and refuse to take their exploitation and abuse seriously, so of course someone suggesting that animal exploitation is just as bad as human oppression isn’t going to sit well with you. You can’t continue to use/ abuse them once they’re on that level, so it’s necessary to make sure their pain is ALWAYS beneath that of humans; always something to be written off; always simply less important.
And Fuck your bullshit definition of what racism is. So because I’m equally as opposed to treating humans like products as I am treating animals like products that means I’m devaluing humans & a racist? Wrong. I’m putting animals on the level of people where they rightfully belong. Where not a single one of you can even explain why it’s supposedly wrong to elevate them our level. Instead, you guys literally do nothing but emotionally respond with “OH NOOOO those crazy animal rights people value all life equally! what evil monsters! how could you!!?!”
I don’t need any of you telling me what or how to think, nor do I accept your flimsy and baseless accusations of racism, sexism, classcism, ableism or whatever else you want to throw out to absolve yourself of ever having to treat animals with respect.
FUCK YOU and your selfish, heartless, “humans are the center of the world” thought policing & keep that shit away from me. Get the fuck over yourselves and your idea that your views of value are the end all be all no one must ever question.
