Attention misanthropic vegans:

Look, I get where you’re coming from. I really do.

It’s hard to look at the horrible ways we treat other animals and each other and not want to shrug off our whole damn species. But a few things to consider:

-Humans are animals. Therefore we should care about their suffering and well being as much as anyone else’s.

-We need humans to get on board in order to actually have a successful animal rights movement.

-Saying “fuck humans I’m just here for the animals” marginalizes oppressed human groups. If you expect people in other movements to show solidarity with Animal Rights, you need to show solidarity with them too.

-Individual humans are not to blame for the violent system they were born and indoctrinated into.

Compassion for everyone is the key to making a better world.

And for all my socially conscious non vegan friends- the animals need you. Please include them in your circle of concern too.

Let’s all together make this a better world for all sentient beings - human and non-human alike
