something that I don’t get that I’ve been seeing a lot recently:
when animal activists get shit for posting a lot about animal rights and/or being veg*an and get called horrible people because they “care more about animals than humans.”
I don’t understand at all. Who on this earth ever said they cared more about animals than humans, or didn’t care about humans? Just because you care about one thing doesn’t mean you don’t care about anything else ever. Real animal advocates are animal advocates because they believe in having compassion and ending oppression for other living beings. That, um, kind of includes other people.
I’m tired of animal rights activists being painted as these crazy people who don’t give a shit about human suffering and will chop your head off for eating a hamburger and worship PETA and run around forcibly shoving tofu down people’s throats. You guys. All we are are people who want to end cruelty to animals. That’s it. Really. And that does not in any way mean that we don’t want to end cruelty to people, too.
just putting that out there!
