If you are not vegan, you are an animal abuser.
Animals suffer exponentially worse than any human population. Enslavement, rape, parents being stripped away from their children, males killed at birth for having no use, improper castration without sedatives, being confined in overpopulated sheds and cages where they stand in faeces and disease/ infection, artificially selected and pumped with hormones to grow at an unprecedented rate that causes legs to break under their own weight, exploitation, wearing corpses as clothing, animals that live around 5-10% of their natural lifespans, and are killed brutally (gas chambers, slit throats, suffocated, smashed against walls etc. 72 billion land animals, trillions of tonnes of marine life each year alone.
There is no humane slaughter, as being humane means to show compassion and mercy. It is supply and demand; you pay the “hitman” to do the dirty work. You are guilty, and should feel it, however it is not too late to take responsibility. You do not have to think animals are equal to humans, just worth more than the momentarily pleasure you get from your taste buds. You have no right to take another’s life. Look from the victim’s perspective. What if you were this species? This extends beyond just farmed animals, all animals including us humans. Or if slavery were allowed today, you would be using them while I would be protesting. Stand on the right side of history. if not you, who? If not now, when?
Vegans often get told that they are too extreme, aggressive, and forceful. However, what is more extreme, aggressive, and forceful? Forcibly breeding billions of suffering animals to be killed or asking people not to pay for it to happen? These are innocent sentient beings that have a will to live and do not give consent to be exploited or eaten. It is not the equivalence of telling someone to go on some fad diet akin to keto or Atkins. It is the philosophy of telling you to not torture, enslave, rape, and murder our fellow animals (which we are just apes ourselves).
