Abolitionist Vegan

I used to be one to say, "somebody should do something about that." Then I realized that I am somebody.

Watch COWSPIRACY. Get others to watch COWSPIRACY.

necessaryveganism:

Are you worried about our planet’s future? About our oceans, about pollution, about the ice caps melting, about world hunger, about deforestation?

By making one simple change in your life, you - a single person, can save every day:

1100 gallons of water
45 lbs of grain
30 square feet of forest
20 lbs of CO2

With one simple change you can avoid supporting the leading cause of all the issues named above.

Are you interested?

And yet relishing in the exploitation of HUMAN workers

Who exactly is “relishing” in the exploitation of humans?
Slaughterhouse workers are some of the most violently exploited workers in this nation, not to mention that it takes many more humans to harvest the billions of pounds of grain, soy, and corn it takes to feed farm animals for years before they’re slaughtered for your burgers. Oh, and while we’re at it, let’s talk about the immensely unsustainable way in which the Amazon’s rain forests aka THE EARTH’S LUNGS are being demolished to plant grain to feed farm animals (and the inherent destruction of wild animal habitats therein), or the enormous amount of methane and waste runoff from factory farms grossly polluting our waterways and aquafirs thereby affecting ALL THE HUMANS ON THIS PLANET?  
It’s really sweet of you that you fill your plate with nothing but animal carcasses and secretions that took an immensely larger amount of water, grain, antibiotics, hormones, human labor, human exploitation, animal exploitation and slaughter than my broccoli and potatoes from my backyard garden.  I’m humbled by your wildly philanthropic example.  
Ethical vegans, in fact, care very much about humans, and oddly, that does not detract from our care for animals or vice versa.   Do you love your father less because you also love your mother?  That’s not how love works in my heart. The issue is not whom we care about or value most; the question is whether it is morally justifiable to treat sentient beings – human or non-human – as commodities.  
Veganism is not about being perfect; indeed, all human activity has inherent consequences.  It’s about reducing harm where possible.

PREACH IT~! <3

Once you go vegan, you’ll start to realize that everyone you know suddenly has an uncle who owns a farm

And nobody on tumblr ever goes to McDonalds or anywhere else that abuses animals, because they buy all their shit from their ‘local farm’.

And they all know a friend who tried to go vegan and almost died.

And they all have a degree in nutrition and a super rare disorder where they will die if they don’t eat big macs and pepperoni pizza

And they’re always getting stuck on deserted islands in the Arctic.

I just don’t get vegan cheese. It’s so unhealthy and so processed so what’s the point? It seems to defeat the purpose of vegan? Also if someone was trying to eat clean by eating vegan this just… Wouldn’t work? Just pondering the important issues in life.

Wait, how does vegan cheese defeat the purpose of veganism? 

Reminder everyone: the purpose of veganism is to stop exploiting animals.

Health benefits may or may not ensue depending on what each person eats.

Veganism is an ethic. A whole food, plant-based diet is a diet.
