Nah, bullying pedophiles and zoophiles is the most socially acceptable thing to do.
But to be fair these groups are more deserving of it than people trying to spread goodwill.

Zoophiles and pedophiles harm others. Calling them out on harming others is not "bullying".
k-rooltyfree's avatar
There are nomaps and non-acting zoophiles, who don't harm (unless they support harm either through consumption of harmful media ie bestiality or real or realistic child pornography) but still are quite risque and need counseling.
And there's also a difference between completely harassing them and calling them ugly names and threatening their lives than there is in simply pressuring them to seek mental help and not supporting their decisions and calling them out on their bullshit.

Yes, but to compare people who have the urge to harm innocents, to people who want to end violence is like comparing apples to oranges.
k-rooltyfree's avatar
Apples and oranges are both fruits and mass-distributed hybrid fruits at that. Apples and oranges are both round in shape and are a shade of red. Both contain about 20% of the Recommended Daily Value of Vitamin C intake.
Literalness aside, there are similar factors in all. If you wanted to use that argument, then I could easily say "comparing cows to humans is like comparing apples to oranges" to boomerang it.
With difference comes important similarities is my point. Vegans, zoophiles, and pedophiles are all groups that are socially voodoo and disgust the general person. 
My general point is that there are mentally disordered people out there who get picked on more often than vegans do. Not just pedophiles or zoophiles but other mentally unhealthy individuals. Even anti-ableist people still hate groups like NOMAPs.
(I'm not saying by any means that groups like NOMAPs or narcissists or other groups who are toxic based off mental disorder deserve support or encouragement to embrace poor decisions, but they deserve human-level respect and guidance and faith to do the right thing.)

tl;dr vegans aren't the only socially acceptable group to bully, this picture is an honest guilt trip and misinformed

Comparing cows to humans is comparing 2 animals to each other who are both sentient and have a desire to live free from harm.
Comparing a violent nut job to someone who advocates non-violence is like comparing fire to ice. It is on par with comparing a women's rights supporter to a wife beater.

Vegans, zoophiles, and pedophiles are all groups that are socially voodoo and disgust the general person. 

Yeah, and so were people who argued against the enslavement of poc in the past. The point is that pedos and zoophiles are shunned because they have the urge to- and sometimes even commit violence, while vegans and people against racism and slavery were/are shunned for calling other people out on their violence. When you think about it, it makes more sense to compare non-vegans to the pedos and zoophiles because they all have a desire to harm/kill the defenseless for their own selfish reasons in common.

The bullying of mentally handicapped innocent people is a taboo in our culture. If you don't believe me, I challenge you to post a video of this bullying online and see how many people will cheer for the bullies. It is more likely that the bullies their names will be sprinkled all over social media, and an angry mob will call them out on their bullshit. Most people don't bully other people, so opposing this injustice is easy for them. But most people DO torture, kill and mutilate animals. So defending people who speak out against cruelty they are personally responsible for is harder on the conscience.

Oh no... go away, wacky - faced people! Maybe if you gave them free CD - ROM copies of Bookworm Adventures Deluxe they'd finally leave you (and me/all other vegans) alone!

I mean it's not the only "acceptable" form of bullying but I get what you are saying. Though I do have one question, I understand the whole not eating meat thing but what about milk and cheese stuff like that? What's wrong with eating that?

If you're not too lazy to read:

It doesn't harm animals to take their milk
In the dairy industry, only females are required because males don't produce milk. Like all mammals, cattle produce milk to feed their young once they give birth. It is a misconception that cows just produce milk non-stop, they do so only once impregnated. As such, when a male is born, he will be slaughtered. Either he is culled immediately, or he is sold into the veal industry and then killed after a few weeks of living in confinement, or he is sold into the beef industry and killed as soon as he reaches a profitable size, which will be about one year old. If the calf is female, typically she will be removed from her mother so that the milk can be stolen, and then she is used in the same manner. Once a mother's milk production is less proftable, she has her throat slit. That generally happens after two milking cycles, when she would be around six years old. The average lifespan of a cow is about twenty years.

But cows need to be milked right?
Like all mammals, cows only produce milk to feed their young. In the dairy industry, the calf is taken away from the mother, and if male, killed. As such, the mother will be producing milk, and in the absence of her child, will "need to be milked". This is no justification for the process of course. If you were to kill a woman's baby boy while she was trying to breast-feed him, you could hardly claim to be doing her a favour by then stealing her milk because it "needed to be done". The whole process doesn't need to be done.

It doesn't harm animals to take their eggs
In the egg industry, only females are required because males don't lay eggs. As such, in the breeding process, the males and females are divided when they hatch, and the males are killed immediately as they serve no purpose. Subsequently, their sisters go on to be kept in captivity until their egg production is no longer profitable to the farmer, at which point they have their throats slit. This is generally at around one or two years old. The average lifespan of a chicken is eight years.

Oh my god I had no idea...
I now fully understand why people go full vegan because being a vegetarian isn't enough and still lets animals be abused, thank you for the information I will spread the word and share your page everywhere I can. I want to change the world and I think people like you are the start of actually being able to do that, it starts with you and then spreads. I hope someday maybe there can be a kids show that encourages being vegan you know instead of like every show ever full blown encouraging eating hoards of meat and then it will continue to grow and inspire, get the message out everyway possible.

You're welcome! Feel free to scroll through my gallery for more information, I have my claims backed up by hundreds of peer-reviewed studies and research, so feel free to look into those, too. Veganism is the fastest growing justice issue of all time. If you want to know more regarding health, the environment or the ethical aspect, feel free to contact me any time and I'll try to help out.

Thank you! I will continue to learn from your posts and work. I'll reference you for most debates for sure I mean you've shut down so many nonsense argument's lol. I have peeked through some of the comments and what not. Anywho have a good day~ I'm sure this isn't the last you'll educate me I look forward to future discussions.

Nah, bullying homophobes is also socially acceptable.
But vegans take a pretty hard hit quite often.

I think you mean homosexuals?
Soldier667's avatar
Soldier667Hobbyist Digital Artist
No, bullying people who don't like homosexuals is socially acceptable.
Pupaveg's avatar
PupavegHobbyist Digital Artist
But just like non-vegans, homophobes encourage harming others needlessly because of something they cannot choose or change. While bullying is not going to solve it, I do think these people should be called out on it, because their actions are harmful. After all, homosexuality doesn't harm anyone. Homophobia does.
Soldier667's avatar
Soldier667Hobbyist Digital Artist
Homosexuality leads to some harm, just different and less immediately noticable harm. But most homophobes don't care about that and attack people based on the nearest religious text.
But the difference is the world is mostly pro-homo and anti-vegan. Because eating meat and sex with whatever they want are both fun, and they don't like people that tell them otherwise. So, it's socially acceptable to bully homophobes AND vegans. Someone who is both has a sad, sad, life.

Two consenting people choosing to have sex with each other doesn't harm anyone.
Torturing, sexually violating and killing animals does.

I know homosexuality may seem wrong when you're raised in a homophobic culture. I was raised in one. But then I thought about it and realized that my homosexual female friend didn't hurt anyone by liking other girls. I mean, think about it. Think past your culture.
Soldier667's avatar

Yeah, the animals never consent, and living things are getting hurt.

My culture never said anything about it, it was nonexistent. I think there's nothing wrong with being friends with someone of the same sex, and even having an affectionate relationship. In some cultures, men or women kiss each other to show affection for a friend. That's all fine.

It may seem odd if you're not used to it, or have grown up in a culture who didn't accept or never talked about it, but the act of homosexuality in itself does not torture and/or kills others in any way. So even though it might not be for me or you, respecting others who do feel good being gay shouldn't be a problem, if that's what makes them happy. People often have the urge to judge things they're not used to, or which are not generally accepted by their culture (I used to be like that long ago: judging gays, people with plastic surgery, sluts etc). But now I think: why? Why attack something that's so harmless? There is so much injustice in the world, and what was I judging? Harmless things like 2 girls getting married, which didn't harm anyone or anything at all? Just because it wasn't "normal"? Why? I'd say we should only fight things that are harmful, like child molestation, rape, murder, racism, and speciesism. Even if someone dresses like a clown, has a weird fetish, or wears diapers as an adult etc... let them. Focus on tackling choices which actually harm others instead. :)

and defending yourself is seen as you being the jerk.

I wish reality was a person who had anger management issues, and would smack some sense into everyone doing unfair crap like this.
