If we are friends and you eat meat, this is not to offend you, just enlighten you
I wanted to post this, as this past weekend a person heard I was vegan and was asked if I was fully vegan, When I said “Yes I believe..” they cut me off and said “Oh so it’s a belief thing” and wouldn’t let me finish and continued his convo with someone else!
So I wanted to share/rant, what I would’ve told him before he interrupted and any future person to ask me why I am a vegan!
This year I was introduced to vegan documentaries, articles, recipes and ideas!
I read and watched the information and was shocked by how being vegan is the natural and most healthy way to live!
So I made the choice for me, I went from blind to passionate!
I decided I wouldn’t close my eyes to the videos I didn’t want to watch, videos about how chickens, pigs and cows are treated, treated like a product, and not a living creature! Not only do the animals suffer but the communities of people who live around them do to
I was always told how it was good for my health to eat meat and I felt betrayed and angry at society by how it created a following of people who can excuse killing animals for dumb reasons like it’s “what we are supposed to do”, or “it’s where you get protein”,
It’s all a lie, and I wasn’t ok with it
I was happy that cutting all the meat and dairy out was not only healthy but cruelty free
People I know still say “This meal is so good, it’s ok to cheat once in a while”, but I think that’s where others don’t understand, I made a health choice to be vegan but once educated about the brutality and truth behind the meat, I made a life choice to never be apart of that problem again! I don’t look at meat and miss it, and I have lost EVERY desire to ever be that person again! I am not a pusher of my beliefs, but it’s funny how pushy meat eaters are! As I have been the “weird one” at many functions because I don’t eat meat, Which is the most fucked up concept!
If you choose to eat meat, you love pets not animals!
