I get that we have the ability to change our diet to not eat meat or animal products in general, I just find it useless.
Nobody should feel bad eating meat, eggs, drinking milk, etc. It's not bad at all.
Animal agriculture is the leading cause of global deforestation, habitat destruction, ocean deadzones, water pollution, greenhouse gas emissions, species extinction, world hunger and many other environmental disasters. It's also responsible for trillions of deaths every year, all unnecessary. What do you find "useless" about not killing innocents and the whole planet? And why shouldn't people feel bad about needlessly harming others out of greed and selfishness? I'm not sure why you bring up stuff like "if you want to do it, fine" and "I don't care if you're vegan" because I don't speak up for myself, I speak up for the ones beings sexually exploited, tortured, mutilated and killed. Because I can assure you that they don't want to be enslaved and mass-killed for your pleasure. So if you think that everyone should make their own choices, then walk the talk by respecting their choice to live, too. Because yes, if a choice has victims, people have all right to tell the perpetrator to stop. And being told to stop harming others doesn't make you
the victim. The victims are the ones being sexually violated, have their babies taken and have their throats slit "because cheese".
I am again keeping with my statement that if other animals eat meat, than sure as hell humans can too.
Senseless violence is not justified by saying that wild animals do it, too. As with the "animals eat other animals" justification, people only ever seem to be interested in justifying something on the basis that it's 'natural' when it comes to murdering animals. Rather conveniently, no one seems to be interested in ditching their smartphone, squatting over a hole in the ground to go to the toilet (as opposed to using unnatural man-made sewage systems), allowing their partner to abstain from showering and brushing their teeth, and so on. The truth is that humans utterly despise
'natural', and why wouldn't they—natural is often horrible! In any case, there is nothing at all 'natural' about eating animal products in this day and age anyway, as the definition of 'natural' means something that is not man-made. Given that the animals we eat are a.) forcefully and systematically bred into existence, b.) domesticated and not wild animals (so essentially are a human creation), and c.) are routinely fed antibiotics
and other completely unnatural things, it makes absolutely no sense that anyone could say that eating meat or animal products now is natural at all.
Bonus fuel right here: sometimes you can't become vegan , because of health needs.
There are over 80,000 different edible plants in the world. No condition makes you allergic to all of them. Sure, with some conditions it takes some more research to go vegan, but there is no condition that makes you allergic to everything except dead bodies and the breast milk of another species (the latter being considered a food group shows how brainwashed people are). Anyone who's reading this has no excuse to kill animals. Unless you're either a.) sitting on a sand dune in the middle of the Sahara Desert, or b.) sitting in an igloo somewhere in the North Pole, in which case I must say, I'm pretty impressed with your wi-fi signal. Palming off one's own complicity in animal agriculture onto those living in barren wastelands shows a complete lack of ability to take responsibility for one's own actions. If you are reading this now, that means you have access to either a computer, laptop, tablet, or smartphone, which means you also have access to shops and so on.
Food for thought.
