You can act very casually about the animals are our equals assumption and seamlessly use that in your reasoning, but it will stand out to any non-brainwashed person who doesn't belong to your cult. A personal decision would be one that only affects you as a person. Animals do not have personhoods. They (the farmed ones) are tools. Products, to use as we want them. You know, because they kind of exist because we wanted them to.

"Oh, they’ll never make me feel like I’m doing something wrong. :)" Don’t worry, no one wants to do that. We want you to stop deluding yourself and face the reality you oh so claim to know and love. The reality is that the global number of conscious vegans is less than the monthly global population growth. The reality is that ever since reliable statistics are recorded, every year more animals were killed than in the one before, therefore your diet cannot possibly save any animal. *

* Now of course you can lie to yourself by casually omitting the word ‘imaginary’ or ‘hypothetical’ when you go on about how many animals your diet save, but that is nothing short of a cult-ish delusion. Sure, you can go for being ‘fair’ and just in this part of your life. There are millions of others where you are living an unfair and unjust life. I’m okay with those and I’m okay with this one as well. I value my convenience over farm animals’ lives. How about that?

You talk about brainwashing? You, who hold firmly to the social conditioning and indoctrination that make you believe you’re superior to other species? 

Even if nothing changes and animals continue being abused and commodified forever by selfish assholes like you, I still wouldn’t want to be part of that. Some of us have morals, you know.

I don’t know why you insist on reading my blog and sending me messages. “How about that”, you say? Like you’re saying anything new. You proved the kind of person you are the other day and nothing has changed. I still have no desire to argue with you, so fuck off.

You need to respect other peoples opinions and stop being so arrogant. Ok you're vegan, that's cool just don't think you're better than people who aren't vegan. It's a lifestyle choice so not everyone's up for it.

It’s not a lifestyle choice. It’s a basic moral requirement. If you think you as a human are above the rest of the animal kingdom and that entitles you to dispose of their lives as you please, I would say that’s a very shitty opinion, and I don’t see why I should respect it. 

Also, I don’t think I’m better than people who aren’t vegan because they can’t or because they haven’t yet given it a thought, but I certainly think I’m better than some asshole who admits they don’t care about others’ rights.

OMG I’M A SHITTY PERSON BECAUSE I EAT MEAT OR OTHER ANIMAL PRODUCTS.
No. It’s just because I make a personal decision to consume what I consume. I try to avoid supermarket meat and eggs and buy organic or cage free from farmers markets, because I know that the meat and products were grown/raised properly and the animals didn’t have to suffer or be caged up just to feed me. No offense, but when people shame others for their personal choices, even if it just involves DIGESTION or what they choose to eat I can’t stand by and watch it happen.Personally, I’ve thought about being a vegetarian, strongly considered it actually, I love animals and at one time we trained and took care of 40 plus horses, three dogs and three cats; animals (specifically horses) were my whole life. Just because I decide to eat meat doesn’t make me thoughtless or an asshole, grow the fuck up and stop trying to force YOUR OWN MORAL BELIEFS ON OTHER PEOPLE. I think religion is terrible and foundationally ignorant, does that mean people who believe in god are thoughtless and assholes? No, that’s my own personal opinion and I don’t generalize everyone else who disagrees with me.
Not only this, but a lot of people have vitamin or mineral deficiencies and many of these supplements are found in meat, protein, or other forms of specific food. Yes, of course they could take pills or capsules to suffice for what they require, but it’s not the same. How would you feel if someone made you feel like crap for eating something you very much needed??? For example, red meat is very important to many pregnant women because it possesses high levels of Iron which is imperative to their health and their child’s health.
Animal abuse is prevalent and a serious issue, and there are definitely strong problems within agriculture and the meat industry currently as they try to mass produce, thereby many companies resort to treating animals with a lack of respect, and in my opinion, essentially denying them of rights that they deserve (i.e proper food source, water, exercise, space, etc etc). But you can’t call everyone who doesn’t personally agree with your lifestyle choice (and yes, it IS a lifestyle choice and a personal decision, just like religious and political beliefs are discrepancies between people) thoughtless or “assholes”. And there are proper ways to go about being a meat consumer. 
I think vegetarianism and veganism is truly amazing, and this is no hate to your beliefs or experiences by any means. It’s a very healthy way to live for some and I admire the people who choose to go down that type of path. But in the grand scheme of things it’s not BETTER or worse for everyone, it’s just DIFFERENT and you shouldn’t make somebody feel bad for that. 

For the last time. Using animals is not a personal choice. A personal choice is one that doesn’t affect others. You don’t think people who believe in God are assholes? That’s great. I don’t either, because that’s their own personal choice and it’s none of my business. But we’re talking about animals who have every right to live their lives as they please without being regarded as commodities. Do you see the difference?

By the way, those “organic” and “cage-free” labels don’t mean a thing. But even if there was a magical farm where no animal had to suffer, would it be ok to take their lives when we can live perfectly healthy lives without eating them? Why should we feel entitled to their bodies? Why can’t we simply stop bringing them into this world for our own benefit? Is it such a radical idea? 

About health issues: you can find every vitamin and mineral in the plant kingdom. Pregnant women don’t need to eat red meat. You just need to eat a balanced diet. And yes, there might be people who have specific issues that can make it more difficult or impossible in some cases, but hey, that doesn’t mean they should go “oh fuck it” and proceed to eat every single animal product on earth, or wear an animal’s skin, or buy a ticket to the zoo, because veganism isn’t simply about not eating meat. I don’t have an issue with the people who wish but can’t stop participating in animal exploitation in all areas of their lives. I have an issue with the people who think they have every right to exploit them because they don’t consider that their lives are worthy of respect. Those are the assholes.

I strongly recommend that you read some animal sanctuary stories. You had a bond with those horses. It should be easy for you to make the connection with other animals.

It is a lifestyle choice you dipshit. If someone wants to eat meat let them. It's none of your business if people eat animals we've been doing it for hundreds of thousands of years and we're not going to stop because some uppity little pissant vegans think its wrong.

The problem with you people is that you always forget there are victims here. You talk about your meat-eating habits like they don’t affect anyone, but they do. These are lives we’re talking about. And the fact that we’ve been eating or using animals for hundreds of thousands of years doesn’t mean a fucking thing. It might have been necessary in the past, but it’s not now. So yeah, I think it’s about time we leave them the fuck alone. If that makes me uppity and pissant, so be it. At least I don’t consider myself so important that others have to live and die for my benefit.

these people love to give these pathetic excuses on why they can't stop eating meat. They are just weak. If you truly believe that eating meat is not right but yet your actions say otherwise, then that doesn't make you a better person. I can totally understanding becoming a vegan, in my opinion that's very hard to do. (I'm a vegetarian) But, I came here to say don't let these people make you feel like you're doing something wrong. They're mad because your lifestyle is the one they should live.

Oh, they’ll never make me feel like I’m doing something wrong. :) I mean, I wasn’t born vegan, so I know all the excuses, and I know all of them are bullshit.

Thank you for your words. Why do you think being vegan is hard? I’ll be glad to help you if I can.
