And lets not pretend the Vegen movement isnt about priviledge.
because it is.
it TOTALLY is.
on so many levels. ableist, wealth. etc.
because if it wasnt, these white people with dreadful locs would be out here trying to educate people about it en mass instead of calling poor and disabled people “savages” and “monsters” for not being able to afford a $30 half a pound tub of gluten free vegan hummus.
they would spread it around , this knowledge of a better way to consume food.
but instead they talk down to the poor and “accidentally” kill kittens.
yessss. not to mention they don’t give 2 shits about the underprivileged workers who have to harvest their food and all the adverse effects it has on different indigenous groups
You TOTALLY Get it!! Why can’t there be more people that GET IT?!?
I wrote a post on Vegan Privilege a while ago. If there are any vegans reading this, you better put down your $30 container of hummus that was made from some artsy fartsy garbanzo beans that cost a couple bars of gold to grow and you better start reading up on your privilege, because if there is a food that wreaks of privilege, it’s got to be beans.
"not to mention they don’t give 2 shits about the underprivileged workers who have to harvest their food and all the adverse effects it has on different indigenous groups"
You god damn right!!!!
These vegans are people who don’t have your immense, uncontrollable, mind blowingly, insomnia filled concern for workers who pick plants.
Thank goodness you ALSO don’t eat plants picked from these workers, which would make them part of the gross injustice that is clearly causing you to lose sleep.
I know people such as yourselves get their fiber from eating a freshly mowed lawn. You get ketchup from living vicariously through an empty heinz bottle that you found in the garbage. You eat hamburgers without a burger bun, tomato, lettuce, etc….You just simply eat a piece of cow flesh sandwiched in the middle of two pieces of cow flesh.
Some people may think that your argument is complete and utter bullshit because the farm animals that you eat also get their food from workers who pick their plants. So…theoretically if people such as yourself are upset by the human labor that goes towards picking plants for food FOR PEOPLE then you should go absolutely apeshit for the fact that there are human labor issues for people who grow and pick crops to feed FARM ANIMALS that wouldn’t exist in the first place if people didn’t demand their existence. Sorry……I lost my train of thought.
Also, the fact that the animal agriculture industry has one of the worst reputations for human labor practices with a high percentage of slaughterhouse workers who suffer from depression, suicide, domestic violence, etc… you would think that these very same people would speak out on this issue since they care tirelessly for the worker, which is why I am sure that your blog is covered with posts dealing with this issue, not just when confronted with veganism. That’s why people such as yourself make sure to slaughter their own animals that they eat, so they by-pass the meat industry, as the last thing you would want to be thought of is privileged. Yay!!!! Consistency!!!
