and you contribute to the slaughter of billions if you eat animals
if you eat meat/dairy/eggs, you have no right to be upset by this.
hundreds of thousands of people who dedicate their lives to animals.
zoo keepers, animal rescuers, wildlife rehabilitators, etc, eat meat.
so yes, they have every goddamn right to be upset about this or whatever else they want to pertaining to animals.
you live in a culture where millions and millions of people are raised to believe eating meat is completely socially acceptable.
you are a vegan and that is great, yes. but this underlying hatred and feeling like people who eat meat are evil or something when half the time they don’t even know any better wears me thin.
there is a fine line between trying to bring information to people and encourage them to be a vegan, and driving thm away.
Most of the time I just ignore your persistent reblogs of accusations but wow I am really getting tired of this hatefulness.
Considering how MUCH you reblog things from me with comments like this I am really wondering why you even follow me.
People have every right to bring attention to an organization that CLAIMS to help animals, and instead kills them.
to tarnish this post with that hateful attitude when it is just trying to bring to peoples attention the fact that they are sponsoring or otherwise endorsing murderers in their attempts to help animals is really ridiculous.
its my blog and i reblog what i like and say what i like.
the fact of the matter is, if you eat meat and are horrified by this you are a hypocrite. whether you know it or not. you are. a dogs life is not more important than a cows. (obviously theres the point “i gave them money to HELP animals and am being double crossed” where as they give money for the purpose of killing animals when you buy meat. so yeah ok theres a small difference between the two. but im not saying theyre the same thing. im saying being told a lie is not as bad as supporting meat/eggs/dairy. your money being used to kill animals without your consent vs your money being used to kill animals with your consent. i couldnt tell you which is worse. )
imo i’d rather be euthanized than strung up by my feet and have my throat slit open.
and im not being hateful? or mean? just making a point of the hypocrisy in our culture. peta is a piece of shit, and im sure my followers -the only ones who will see my comment- already know that because i have reblogged anti-peta things before.
i dont make comments for youuu i make them for meee and my blog and my followers. you can ignore them as much as you like
but, if someone’s excuse for not going vegan is “boo hoo vegans were indirectly rude to me on the internet” i have nothing to say to them- they’re beyond help.
i like your blog. i do. i’ve learned a lot about fish care and other animals. i like seeing photos of your pets. youre a wonderful artist. just wow. but sometimes you post things i find problematic- so do a lot of people i follow- and i dont think thats worth missing out on all the good their blogs have to offer.
generally i only post something in the comments section instead of the tags if A. i think its important information i have to add. or B. i think no one who follows me is going to reblog it anyway so why not?
this one is pretty much B.
And I think people who care for a cat and not a fish are pretty hypocritical, too.
but I can’t respond with a bitchy comment and expect them to change.
If you want to change peoples minds so bad, you need to take the time to EXPLAIN, not just post a snarky comment that most people will unfortunately overlook. Or be put off by.
It’s not a case of ‘wow I won’t be vegan because vegans are mean weh!’
half the time it’s misinformation and if you’re not providing anything but an angry comment then people aren’t going to get a thing from it.
and also deciding a persons worth,a nd how much they should care about animals, based on their dietary habits is pretty damn sad. You may not like the meat industry (no one should) but many people don’t understand it. And have been raised thinking it is okay.
so to tell those people that they are not ALLOWED to care about animals because of it is pretty damn sad in my opinion.
Because there are people out there sacrificing their days all the time and saving animals. Doing more than just not eating meat/dairy and feeling good about themselves because of it.
And to diminish their worth because they don’t follow you in being a vegan is, again, pretty sad.
I would hate to have that kind of outlook.
And while you don’t reblog things for me, and I’m not delusional or self absorbed enough to think that to begin with, you do reblog things from me where I can see.
and constantly having comments saying I shouldn’t care about animals?
Pretty damn shitty imo.
