Shit editing but... shouldn't give less credit to the message. This is for all the cows that are raped, tortured, murdered every single day, and that have their babies taken away from them as soon as they're born into this world, just so humans can have milk in their coffee, meals and dessert, when alternatives already exist. Will you choose compassion over your own tastebuds and egoism? Act. Not your mum, not your milk. #govegan#nowisthetime#cow#babycalves#art#antispeciesism#inktober
Speciesism, taught at such a young age. We protect one yet kill the other. Personal choice? Think about this: when did you make that choice to eat that food? Did your parents sit you down and say « hey...this is beef. It was once a cow, a living being before it was send to a slaughterhouse. Not only that, but it will increase your risk of developing diseases like cancer. We took food from millions of people in food poverty to feed these cows so you could have 5 minutes of taste. Would you eat it?”. And this is the truth. No need to sugarcoat it or lie about it. I’m sure many of us would have responded no. So many people think that eating animals is normal, natural and necessary. So many kids love animals and don’t think of them in terms of foods. I truly think we are all born vegan and that society and culture diconstruct that and teach us that it is ok to love some and eat/wear others. This is what Melanie Joy calls “carnism” @beyondcarnism. Carnism is a belief when, funny enough, people think veganism is a belief, which is not. Animals are dying, the planet is dying. Veganism is not a belief. These are facts. And more and more parents take the decision to raise their kids with compassion, love and respect ❤️. And a plantbased diet is totally healthy for every stage of life as the biggest Dietetic Association (the ADA) attests. Check out @ellenfisher, @sarahlemkus and so many more women that raise their children on a plantbased diet. Not only it is totally possible, but it is easy and absolutely healthy. #compassion#love#respect#animallover#animals#liveandletlive#lovethemdonteatthem#education#ethics#values#kids#vegankids#veganism#antispeciesism#bekindtoeverykind#kindness#happyhealthyvegan#vegansofig#americandieteticassociation#eatplantsnotanimals#friendsnotfood#veganchildren#education#quote#quotes#quoteoftheday#fortheanimals#fortheplanet#forhealth#futuregeneration
"I dream of a world where all hurting people- human and nonhuman- are viewed with compassion and a desire to alleviate their suffering. But this cannot happen when humans still deny that nonhuman animals are indeed people. A cow is not property which doesn’t have feelings, and that can be touched and disregarded in any way those in power please. She is a person, who experiences emotional turmoil when her rights are taken from her, just like I did after I was abused. I am asking you to include her in the revolution." -Amanda Houdeschell
“Уморих се от жалкото морално малодушие, каращо “защитниците на животните” да употребяват думата “веган” с неохота и да хленчат за “растителноядно, състрадателно хранене” и тям подобни безсмислици. Не е въпрос на “състрадание”. Въпрос е на справедливост. Въпрос е на основни права. Въпрос е на морален дълг. И ако животните имат морална значимост, веганизмът е морален дълг.

“I am so tired of the pathetic moral cowardice that leads ‘animal advocates’ to be reluctant to use ‘vegan’ and has them yammering on about ‘plant based compassionate diets’ and similar nonsense. It’s not a matter of ‘compassion.’ It’s a matter of justice. It’s a matter of basic rights. It’s a matter of moral imperatives. And if animals matter morally, veganism is a moral imperative.”

Животните, които обичаме не се различават от онези, които ядем. Станете веган. ~ Гари Франсион @gary.francione

Станете веган. Обучавайте другите. Осиновявайте/станете приемен родител.
Станете веган. Животните имат правото да не бъдат използвани като имущество. Веганизмът е моралната делителна линия, показваща дали приемаме това право насериозно. ~ Гари Франсион @gary.francione
My beautiful friend Elodie, which is for me one of the best humans of the little amount of the ones I like, embroidered one of my anti-speciesist designs. She is the best, isn't she? 🐮✨ A few days ago, I was walking for the streets in Kathmandu, when I saw an old white man annoying a lamb that was tied in a front of a house. He said "Look at her, this are her last minutes on Earth!", while he was laughing and graving her from the horns. I have a fxcking strong empathy, so immediately I felt bad for the lamb, for being tortured by an ignorant man before being murder. I said that the situation was really sad, and tried to give her some love, when the man stopped me saying "Sad? This is our meat! From where do you think meat comes from? Supermarkets?". So he wasn't just an ignorant horrible man, but he was also treating me like an idiot. I told him I'm vegan, and that we don't need meat to survive, and he answer "that's why you look so unhealthy. You know what HONEY, I'm 72, I want to see if you can make it to 72". So he wasn't just and ignorant horrible man that was treating me like shit, he also killed me already! So I told him he was an ignorant, and he left. I started giving some love to the lamb, and he came back just to scream to me "AT LEAST I DON'T KILL PALESTINIANS!", assuming that I'm Israeli, which is way more ignorant and terribly racist.
So yeap, that's how using and consuming products of innocents sentient beings for your own placer makes you sound like.
By supporting speciesism, you are supporting the oppression of innocent sentient beings, like it happens with black people, with LGTB people, and like it happened with Jewish people.
Animals are someone, not something.
Let's be vegan for them! And for all the oppressed victims by the white speciesist supremacy! 🌱💪🏽
