Weight should be like virginity.
Once you lose it you can’t get it back
Ohhhh. I thought you were gonna say “Weight should be like virginity: a societal ideal by which we shouldn’t measure our personal worth.”
I believe that you believe that you do. You probably think hurting cats and dogs is bad and have probably passionately latched on to other feel good causes for the selectively compassionate but ultimately your support of animals rights ain’t fucking shit if you fund industries that strip animals of every single one of their rights. Like you can scream ” I support animal rights” till the cows come home buddy but can you honestly not see how hypocritical it is to say you care about/want to help protect non human animals while at the same time reducing so many of their lives to nothing more than a meal and paying people to do nothing but harm to them?
Thank you! Sorry for answering this so late, somehow Tumblr decided to not inform me about this question, haha.
Sounds a lot like my own family to be honest. I am very glad that I have a lot of vegan and vegetarian friends. But even without their support, I would have never given up. But I know exactly how you feel. My family just does not want to hear about it, they do not give veganism a chance. Only because of tradition, because oh they “were told so” and because “it always was like that” and bla bla bla. Just keep telling yourself that you are right. Then imagine they would have to slaughter all those animals themselves. They would never touch those products again, haha. Just keep telling yourself “I’m good, and I know that I am right. I refuse participating in this cruelty, this shows I have strength, kindness and empathy, and I am wonderful.” Because seriously, you are!
If we could talk to animals, imagine how much they would thank you. And all the vegans in this world and me, we thank you. Thank you for doing this, and never give up. Keep it up, because it makes you happy, and one day you will for sure find someone who supports you how you deserve it and who has the same attitude. I hope this helps you! :)
I actually do have a clue what those people went through. Of course I do not know exactly how it must have felt, and I would never dare using their struggle to illustrate my cause. But I had a subject called History and we learned a lot about it and visited deathcamps and everything. I’ve read thousands of stories from several people. I never referred to this suffering. I only referred to the numbers of deaths. So know the difference before you go on reading this.
I hope you understand. I don’t want to make the second world war sound harmless. But a holocaust is a genocide of around 5-6 million humans. Now, look at these numbers. These are the numbers of animals killed in one year:
Layer hens: 69,683,000
Broiler chickens: 9,005,578,000
Do you think it serves them right? At the bottom of your heart, you know that the right answer is no. Everyone does. Nobody deserves a murder.
But people don’t care. Of course, I don’t want to say and I never said that the second world war is not worse than this. I never compared the whole second world war to this. But if you find that 6 million is a terrifying number (which it is), but you do not give a fuck about these numbers of animals killed, something is wrong with you. Yes those lives were fucked up and they were tortured and it was horrible, and I myself would never say that this is as horrible, but animals are tortured and killed every day. Animals are caught in cages for their whole lives. Until death. This is a holocaust. There is one huge holocaust going on in this world. Every single day. This is what I am fucking trying to say. Let these numbers go through your head, and visualize it. The suffering itself is a whole different thing and I repeat, I never referred to that.
Yeah they do. And exactly, this is the point. :)
