RP 👉@gary.francione - For some reason that eludes me, some animal advocates believe that because it took them a while to go vegan, the position of the animal rights movement should be that individual “journeys” are just fine.
But that is absurd.
Imagine someone saying, “It took me a while to stop being a racist so I think that the civil rights movement should promote the idea that it’s fine for everyone to learn to embrace equality at their own pace. If someone thinks that it’s okay to discriminate against people of color, we cannot make judgments. To say that equality is an unequivocal moral baseline is to take a ‘my way or the highway’ approach. We need baby steps. Let’s start with Racist-Joke Free Monday.” If someone said that, we would think that such a person was *seriously* confused and did not understand the nature of morality.
Those who say this in the animal context are similarly seriously confused about what morality means. And if they agree that “baby steps” are not acceptable when it comes to racist discrimination but are acceptable in the animal context, they’re just being speciesist.
When all you want to do is eat this cheesy spread all day everyday. Teaser to a new recipe! It's so versatile I made a vegan mac'n'cheese with it the other night. And used it in a salad 🥗 the next day. It's gluten free, oilfree paleo and of course vegan!
What a morning! Quick workout in the gym, and soon off to Hamburg!! ____________________
Hamburg ich komme! Viel zu lange nicht mehr dort gewesen und besuche dort die liebste @essadelafleur (Instagram machts möglich 💘). Viel Sushi. Viel Kaffee. Und mal sehen was die schönste Stadt uns noch so zu bieten hat! Ab Sonntag bin ich dann auch in Berlinski für ein paar Tage! (@katharina.larissa, @conniebeatrice, @wiebke_a_point: seid ihr in der Stadt?)
after a week of #padthai I treaded myself nicely with this lovely chickpea burger today 💚 --- es gibt echt viele Vegane restaurants auf Ko Thao allerdings sind die echt teuer! Ich esse sowieso am liebsten da, wo auch die Locals essen. Heute hatte ich aber einfach mega lust auf diesen leckeren Burger. Genießt euren Abend und denkt dran euch ab und zu mal etwas gutes zu tun👌 !
Im so sorry. Every day i reflect upon the abuse i see and the ignorance of people. I drive past fields of livestock and apologise for every time i ate an innocent being in the past without a thought, and i apologise for what i know is going to happen to them in the future. I do it for the animals. I love you. Im so sorry 💔😭 . If anyone feels the same and wants to try vegan, holla at me and i'll be happy to help 🐷🐮🐣🐟 .
