I’m proud of you, keep doing what you’re doing.
There’s a lot of reasons.
Some people do not want to have someone make them feel uncomfortable about their lifestyles because they think we’re saying that they’re bad or evil when that’s not even the case most times! 99% of us started out just like them. Some of us were even stubborn about changing because not many people want to admit that they are perpetuating one of the most ruthless industries that exists today.
People don’t like to change.
People are also probably very comfortable and don’t want to put in the effort.
People don’t like to hear about the suffering. My best friend absolutely hates when I talk about slaughterhouses. She can’t even watch fictional/animated animals in pain. So I’m like then why don’t you just change?! And she admits that she’s a selfish person and doesn’t want to. So I gave up on her.
They also don’t want to “give up” their favorite foods, although, I feel this is only temporary and it’s pretty selfish to put cravings over the lives of others.
There’s replacements for everything. I’m not going to lie and say they all taste exactly like the animal products but after a while you won’t notice it. Plus, you don’t really NEED to eat processed crap.
I don’t even know what’s the big deal about “vegan” food, as if these people never ate a vegetable in their lives, or as if there’s no vegan junk food that tastes awesome. Oreos can be vegan ffs.
I’m rambling, but yeah. I think it’s mostly that they think we loathe them, I, personally, don’t hate them, I hate their actions. I think they should try to understand how frustrating and unsettling it is for US to live in their culture in which we see how blindly people believe what they’re told and how uncaring they could be about the harm they inflict. Not only that but we tend to be labeled as the bad people and we’re mocked for wanting there to be less pain in the world.
You might as well tell me something like, “Don’t judge people but I’m going to judge you because I’m a better person than you.” Hypocritical much? You disapprove of a certain action and you think it’s okay to call me out on it, but once someone else does it to someone else, they’re an asshole? I think you’re just as bad. Vegans are trying to get shit done. Albeit they don’t all choose the best ways to do that be to each their own. But technically, saving lives is more important than avoiding hurting people’s feelings.
Also, I’m actually very likable and enjoyable to be around. Not that I have to prove myself to you.
If you actually understood what I’ve said on my blog I’ve pointed out that I do not berate people constantly about how they live their lives.
This is my blog, if someone asks my opinion on something, I’m going to tell them, and I more than thoroughly explain why I feel that way.
No matter what the subject is, I don’t believe there are inherently ~bad~ people, they just do “bad” things. I’m well aware there are exceptions to everything, including people who aren’t capable of being vegan currently.
If I hated everyone that isn’t vegan, I would interact with exactly 0 people in real life, so I think you should keep your assumptions to yourself.
