Veganism has fuck all to do with ‘compassion’ or animal consideration, or anything like that. Veganism, and adherence to it’s label, is entirely identity driven. It’s just a group to join, it’s just something for people to put in their about me bios. There is no such thing as an authentic vegan.
You think I’m lying? Ok, get this.
Attn: Anyone who bitches how evil people are for using animal products, and how ‘pro-cruelty’ everyone but you and your ‘good vegankind’ are, I want you to ask yourself if you have an an iPod, mobile phone, or a computer? Chances are you have, otherwise you wouldn’t be reading this.
These products contain something known as stearic acid.
Do you know where stearic acid comes from?
Guess what? It’s animal fat.
By harassing people online for using animal products, you are using an animal product, in order to tell others off for the animal products they use.
(chances are, ‘objective’ vegan sources and Earthlings films, distributed electronically by animal produced devices naturally, probably conveniently failed to tell you this)
And presumably this irony is completely lost on you.
I cannot stress this enough, if you really have such a problem with animal products and are ‘saddened and disgusted by the use of animal products’ as you claim, because you are such a righteous principled person, you will learn to follow your own advice, and log off right now. You will cease all usage of any iPod, phone or computer you possess, because to continue use of these is feeding right back into the practice and system you claim to despise.
Of course, we both know you’ll never do this. Because, how else will you be able to access your vegan themed personal blog and tumblr, and tell people how good of a vegan you want to be by reblogging anti-animal product quotes while using an animal product?
Inb4 “but it’s ok if the animal products are ones that I personally use’
LOLOLOLOLOL. I don’t mind people who live a vegan lifestyle, each to his own. But for those self righteous people who want to constantly lecture me on animal rights because I eat animal products, think before you speak!
