Remember when militant vegans weren't racist, homophobic, sexist, classist, and/or ableist dickbags?
Does anyone remember that intense vegan troll blog where the owner said he was a vegan dog and that predatory animals should be vegan too? Anyone remember what it was?
How dare you love that dog! Cast it out at once!
A lot of vegans have pets but like those animals never consented to being your pets so you’re basically enslaving them for your own pleasure
I mean I guess that’s why my boyfriend’s dog paws and parks and whimpers at the door to come back inside and jump all over us and sit in our laps when he’s let outside even for two minutes on a lovely day. He’s obviously brainwashed. We enjoy making him suffer by feeding and loving him, oh yes. He definitely doesn’t enjoy it.
Does sushi count? Because I eat that like no one’s business.
Not liking vegans that compare eating meat to the Holocaust or some shit is apparently hate mongering. Amazing.
I don’t have hate in me. Annoyance, sure. But mainly tolerance. Eat what you want and I won’t judge you unless you’re a dick to me; that’s my policy.
Granted, I don’t exactly condone anyone keeping a tiger or leopard or wolf as a pet. Those aren’t domesticated animals and they’re better off not kept indoors with a collar around their necks. THAT is messed up. Plus, good luck taking care of them all their lives.
It boggles my mind that there are vegans out there that consider owning a pet to be enslavement since the animal “can’t consent to being a pet.” So you want us to release our dogs and cats, who are loved and spoiled and fed and pampered, into the wild and watch them suffer trying to fend for themselves? I mean, I think that’s cruel and sick, but okay. What about our huge snakes? Should we release those and see how that goes? I’d rather not. (Since animals can’t consent to being pets, they also can’t consent to being cast out on their own, btw). I don’t know about you, but if I released my pets I’d feel like a horrible mother who kicked her own child out of the house because I love, spoil, and take care of my pets like they were children.
Naw, of course it’s not wrong to feel mixed about it. It sounded quite gruesome to me, and I can see why people would be upset by it. And sounding nice-vegan instead of hateful-death-vegan is a-okay.
