I have zero patience for vegans with such a sense of moral superiority like…it takes sO MUCH privilege to be vegan and not to mention a lot of staples of vegan cooking rely heavily on food gentrification which has real, damaging consequences for people of color. There are fucking turf wars going on over land to cultivate your trendy “superfoods” like quinoa. Lives are fucking at stake here.
And often its an attitude comes with a disregard for the subhuman conditions of migrant workers and other victims of capitalist agriculture im just finished today. Dont eat animal products if you dont want but dont act like theres no blood on your hands because there is, and it’s human.
-I’m a poor college student making minimum wage at a clothing store that is located forty minutes away from where I live.
-Veganism does not take a lot of privilege. There are vegans who live under the poverty line and there are homeless vegans. Do not dare erase their fucking existence because you feel the need to hate on someone’s life style.
-You wanna talk about PoC? The meat and dairy industry is the main contributor to the deforestation of the Amazon rain forest and has taken so much land away from the natives who live there. To raise slaughter animals, these industries are in need of thousands upon thousands of pounds of grain, all of which come from under paid PoC workers. A lot of these workers work in horrible conditions just to feed your meat.
-Quinoa is not a vegan “trendy” food. Do you really think only vegans eat this and are the cause for the problems it’s creating? In the U.S.A, vegans make up 0.5% of the population and last time I checked I can walk into a supermarket and find quinoa and chicken ready meals. Stop being fucking stupid.
-“And often its an attitude comes with a disregard for the subhuman conditions of migrant workers and other victims of capitalist agriculture im just finished today. Dont eat animal products if you dont want but dont act like theres no blood on your hands because there is, and it’s human.” You are contributing more to this mayhem than vegans are. You are supporting shitty companies by eating meat and dairy.
In case you didn’t know, a lot of people go vegan for the reason of human rights as well as animal rights. Do you live under a rock or something or did you just assume that it didn’t take hard, under paid labor to feed the animals you want to eat? Did you also know that the United State produces enough grain to feed to entire world and yet all of it is going to raising slaughter animals? Don’t you think that’s pretty selfish? Did you also know that the meat and dairy industry are also the main produces of CO2 and methane gas? Oh yes… That must be so good for future generations….
No lifestyle is perfectly cruelty free, except for probably photosynthesizing. But at least vegans are trying.
Stop acting like a prissy bitch and take the time to research your lifestyle. I know I did back in the day and that’s why I became a vegan.
