You can just barely make out “Not all mosquitoes”.

I didn’t know there were twenty thousand vegans on tumblr!!!

You can be against animal cruelty and not be a vegan

You can be against animal cruelty and not be a vegan

Also given the fact some vegans wilfully neglect their pet’s diet for personal belief reasons you can in fact be a vegan and be ok with animal cruelty when its convenient for you.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again you cannot actively pay for products that bring harm in pain to an animal well also claiming to be against animal cruelty. You’re right you don’t have to be vegan to cut that out of your life but you’ve got to be pretty damn close.

Oh my fucking god we get it.

Well excuse me for calling you out on your bullshit. I’m sorry I have to inconvenience you once in a blue moon with me actually reminding you people of this. Now you have a taste what it’s like to be a vegan and be annoyed by pretty much everybody.You can’t reblog a post with gaping logical fallacies I expect me not to say something about it.

This is why people hate vegans. Just let people live their lives without telling them how wrong they are. We know we’re wrong.
At least some vegans are at least respectful about it.

What a progressive mentality you have there. can you imagine if we took the same stance on battling racism." just let the Ferguson Police Department live their lives""Just let the Nazis live their lives you don’t have to go around telling them how wrong they are they know they’re wrong"" just let the people who make homophobic legislature and refuse to legalize gay marriage live their lives"See how stupid that argument is.

I’m curious I’m not vegan myself but if we kept the animals in good spaces and in good condition,and killed them humanly would you be against meat or dairy products?

how do you kill an animal humaneley. how can you forcibly take the life of another independent creature and call it humane?its one thing to put down a pet that is suffering and living a life of pain. its another thing to raise an animal just to be slaughtered.there are ways to cultivate animal products like eggs for example. but on a mass industrial scale it willnever happen.its easier and healthier to just eat things that arent sentient.now there is the possibility of petri dish clone meat but thats still a long way off.

Okay I wasn’t going to chime in but I think it’s really dumb to compare veganism to Ferguson and nazis.
A more relative comparison would be to use antivaxxers.
Not that I’m siding one way or the other on this I’m just pointing that out.

please explain your standpoint.

Like. Racism, homophobia, and the like are systematic forms of oppression and discrimination.
Veganism is a diet choice.
Antivaxxers choose to not vaccinate for health reasons. So that’s why it’s a more relevant analogy.

i ddnt compare veganism to nazis i compared carnism to the nazis. so yea youre right. veganism isnt really comparable to nazism racism homphobia.

You’re comparing a person who eats a chicken breasts to someone who rounded up people and sent them to concentration camps to be killed just for the sake of killing them.
Seriously?

im not comparing the person who eats the chicken. im comparing the institutions as a whole. we treat these animals the same way that the nazis treated the jews. systematic slaughter. experimentation. all of it. the only difference is nazis, to my knowledge, didn’t eat the jews.
the problem is people have never been exposed to it. they’ve been taught their whole lives “well this is how it is” or “its just natural” and never thought twice about it. its not their fault they grew up this way but that doesn’t mean we cant peel back the curtain and show people the implications of their actions.

No in your original comment that lead to this you were flipping liams words which was essentially “let the people eat meat do what they want to do” and you replaced them with nazis and abusive cops. at that moment you directly compared non-vegans to nazis and stuff.

it would stand to reason that telling someone to shut up because they pointed out the hypocrisy in supporting an industry that brings harm and oppression to other living creatures would be compareable to those statements.im still not seeing what you are getting at. did you think that it was too big if a buzzword or something?

I’m not arguing about veganism with you. I’m literally just talking about that statement you made comparing non-vegans to nazis, racists and homophobes.
All I was trying to tell you was that comparing a dietary lifestyle choice to systematic forms of oppression and discrimination is stupid and that you should use more relative things to compare it to like antivaxxers.
I wasn’t saying that you were wrong or right in your opinion on veganism/carnism because I really don’t care about the issue. I was calling you out on your false equivalency and frankly your insensitivity to compare animals being killed for consumption to the unjustified murders of black teens and jews.

how is it a false equivilancy. the carnist diet causes animals to suffer under the same conditions as the jews did under the nazis. the exploitation of animals is not all that different than the exploitation of the jews.
can you kill a human humainly? im just asking because what you are doing is separating your ethics because they are a separate species. but we share traits with animals. we both feel pain. we both have a will to live. we both suffer. we both feel fear. these traits are the reason we deem it morally wrong to kill another human, no matter the level of brutality involved. these traits do not change between species. so im wondering why, even in this completely hypothetical situation, you are differentiating between the two.
you’re not examining the implications of that dietary choice.

I really and truly cannot believe that you are putting what the Jews went through and what young black teens go through to animals. You know there’s a reason why you don’t compare humans to animals right?
And you can sit there and play the moral high ground all you want but you ignore that animals are pretty awful to each other. Humans don’t inject animals with digestive fluids to liquefy their intestines and suck them out with a straw as their life less body twitches like spiders do. Lions eat gazelles as they’re still alive and breathing their last breath ripping the flesh off as the animal continues to breath. Snakes crush their enemies to death suffocating them slowly and then swallow them whole or injecting them with a paralytic venom and then swallowing then.
We are no more crueler than the animals you empathize with.

animals operate on instinct we dont. we operate on logic.
logically speaking animal cruelty should be abstained from on a biological, moral, economic, and even environmental level.
Humans Are Biologically Herbivores (An Informative Chart)
Our ancestors may have eaten meat, but more often than not, they were scavengers. (Binford, Louis. R. (1986) Human ancestors: Changing views of their behavior. Journal of Anthropological Archaeology 3:235-257.)
In Paleolithic (ie. hunter-gatherer times), the archaeological consensus is that most of us would have eaten large, hunted game very seldom, and had a subsistence diet of vegetable materials for the remainder of the time. Hunting is energy-intensive, risky, and not a dependable source of energy.
Research presented in a 2011 issue of Proceedings of the National Academy of Science shows that even Neanderthals ate a variety of plant foods; starch grains have been found on the teeth of their skeletons everywhere from the warm eastern Mediterranean to chilly northwestern Europe. It appears they even cooked, and otherwise prepared, plant foods to make them more digestible—44,000 years ago.
Humans are facultative omnivores, meaning we CAN eat meat, but do better without it. Adapting to eating meat got us through the last ice age and the habit stuck. We are now in a place and time where we can forego this vestigial, harmful practice. 
Saying we’re omnivores because we’re capable of eating meat is just silly.  We’re capable of eating cardboard, too.  And by the “capable” argument, then cats are omnivores too, since nearly every commercial cat food has plant ingredients.
Our so-called “canine teeth” are “canine” in name only. 
Among animals, plant-eaters have the longest lifespans, and humans are certainly in that category (and yes, this was true even before modern medicine).
We sleep about the same amount of time as other herbivores, and less than carnivores and true omnivores.
The most common cause of choking deaths is eating meat. Real carnivores and omnivores don’t have that problem.
READ THIS ENTIRE THING.
You Could Feed Hundreds of People with What It Takes To Raise 200 Kilos of Boneless Beef
An acre of land can produce 40,000 pounds of potatoes, 50,000 pounds of tomatoes, but only 250 pounds of beef.
Environmental Impact of a Vegan vs. Conventional Diets (PDF file)
Meat subsidies strip other food industries to the bone
4 million people on this planet live on an almost exclusively vegan diet due to poverty.
If Britain went vegetarian, less than half the farm land would be needed; vegan, less than a quarter.
The less people eating meat, the cheaper produce gets for everyone.
Junk Food Costs More Than Healthy Foods
We currently produce enough food to feed the world, but feed it to animals we later kill instead.
Studies confirm increasing population must abandon meat by 2050.
i have more but i think you get the gist.
and you still haven’t explained how it is illogical to compare the oppression faced by humans to that of animals.
you cannot compare the instictual natural insticts of an animal to the choices of a human. we do not operate on that system. we are smarter than they are we are capable of compassion and complex problem solving.
its time we started acting like it.

…..You’re still not getting why I put in my original two cents. I don’t care about veganism one way or the other. I really dont.

YOU CANT COMPARE THE SUFFERING OF HUMAN SOULS TO THE SUFFERING OF ANIMALS BECAUSE THAT IS TWO COMPLETELY DIFFERENT SITUATIONS. I’m not saying that the suffering of animals is any better or worse than the suffering of humans because that’s just a matter of how you view the sanctity of life (whether you extend that view to animals is a personal moral) but you can’t compare the two.

Launched last month, Wafrica — Africa plus wa for Japan — has unveiled a range of kimono handcrafted in an array of African cotton fabrics that would seem to be a million miles from the subtle silks more commonly associated with traditional Japanese dress. Yet despite the orange comets and flashes of lightning tearing across a moss-green background, and the tribal swirls in colors that recall the sun-drenched African soil, the prints blend seamlessly into the kimono form before they surprise Japanese shoppers with their foreign origin.

The cultural cocktail is the brainchild of Serge Mouangue, a Tokyo-based concept- car designer for Nissan, who joined forces with Kururi, a Tokyo-based kimono- maker, to produce the traditional Japanese attire in 18 African prints sourced in markets from Nigeria to Senegal.

A friend of mine is absolutely driving…

Fat people can be healthy for a period of time, but it will lead to health problems in future. Our bodies are not designed to carry 200+ exsess weight. Look up autopsy photos of fat people. Their organs clearly covered in fat and they are huge. That’s not healthy
