This. Makes. Me. Fucking. Sick.
I am completely speechless……. Thanks aarbearrawr for making me feel even MORE shitty about myself. I’ll just stop eating all together, and be a fucking vegetarian. Alright?! Are you happy now?! I’ll stop being so selfish because I eat meat. I’m sorry that I couldn’t look past my own fucking problems and contribute to the death and torture of these animals. So, just for you, I’ll stop eating meat.
And to that Anon, congrats. Some sense has been knocked into me. And I hope you realize that all of you claiming to be Pagan, and are BULLYING and TORMENTING ME, should look at yourselves a little bit closer. How are YOU any better than the human beings that bully and torment those animals?! You claim to not eat animals because you follow the “harming none” rule. Well, you break it every time you are senseless, arrogant assholes and torment people who have different opinions.
I am done. I am sick of all of this. And just for you, I’ll go vegan. Might as well go and throw up that milk I just had. Oh, and the small piece of cake. I’ll go throw those up to, and beg the Goddess for forgiveness for eating things that are produced by animals.
Congratulations. You’ve won.
HOLY FUCK EVERYONE
VEGETARIANISM IS NOT A TENET OF PAGANISM.
YOU DO NOT GET TO INFLICT YOUR MORALS ONTO OTHERS
SO SHUT THE FUCK UP
And if you’re actually worried about things like ethics, look into the food industry as a whole. Holy fuck. The high-priced organic vegetables you pay for? That part of the industry has dozens of human rights violations every year. Seriously, a quick Google search will show you the shit that happens and isn’t even all that uncommon.
Do you really care about the cows more than the immigrant workers who often have no choice but to pick your food for you? Or, if we’re arguing that the only thing that matters is death (which makes you a callous person), why are the cows so much more important than the smaller animals who are killed by the wheat threshers? You have blood on your hands the same as us meat-eaters. It’s cool if you still want to avoid meat, but shut the fuck up about it.
If you are incredibly concerned about the state of affairs, the only tactic that will have any actual chance at success is to go after the food industry itself. Talk to governmental representatives, start petitions, make your (incredibly valid) concerns heard. But trying to bully someone into becoming a veg*n makes you an asshole, not an activist.
