Veganism is a kind of lifestyle that boasts a cruelty-free existence.
You don’t partake in anything that helps in the exploitation of animals, so you don’t wear fur clothes, you don’t eat meat, you don’t eat animal products like diary either. Vegans, in general, also tend to be very vocal about their lifestyle and convince other people to do the same.
But here’s the thing, there’s no way you can live a cruelty-free life if you’re alive. Life demands the deaths of others. The people you hire, and the people you pay, they eat meat, and the land you live on is land that animals cannot use. Even if you do not directly contribute to the exploitation of animals, you do so indirectly by paying people who do directly.
The only way to live your life truly cruelty-free is to simply not live. You eat plants, which also have pain receptors and also feel pain. Unless you live on a diet of minerals in some uninhabitable region, you’re taking advantage of other living things. Someone posted a Tumblr thread on Imgur and it went viral, explaining exactly what I mentioned but with better statistics.
The exploitation of immigrants is rampart.
It’s not a liveable lifestyle.
The misinformation is also crazy.
Even the veganism lifestyle directly damages the habitats of animals.
What do you think about it?
Is veganism an inaccurate and misleading way to go about advocating for animal cruelty free life, or are there some facts that this tumblr user omitted? Tell us down in the comments below!
