ok sorry but this is the funniest photo ever. white girl with dreads holding iphone crying about pig being slaughtered while probably not giving a shit about the shitty conditions of migrant workers who get her veggies or even the workers at meat factories who also get treated like shit and exposed to danger every day from unsafe conditions
anyways i used to be vegan and i didn’t reblog this bc like you know how militant vegans can be like
I really can care less about the workers in the factories. I’m all for the animals. I truly believe you have a choice in what you do and slaughter in animals is a choice I don’t believe in. Vegans can be harsh but they have good intentions but it’s also they get harsh criticism as well so you expect them to just take it and not push back? Nope.
"I really could care less about the workers in the factories."
Like did you really just say that? Workers are less important than a pigs life? Ya’ll heard it here first. Lmfao.
White vegans generally are the worst
Okay, I have a crap-ton of things to do today, but I genuinely couldn’t not respond to this. Also this has a bunch of cursing because again, I couldn’t stop myself.
Dear fellow white people - this is NOT FUCKING OKAY!
If you really don’t understand that the awful conditions faced by the HUMAN BEINGS who make your iphone or pick your vegetables, you have NO FUCKING RIGHT to call yourself an activist. Yes, the pig is going to die. Some of its cousins may have already died of starvation, exhaustion, heat exhaustion or disease. Making its living conditions EXACTLY THE SAME as the HUMAN BEINGS serving you around the world.
Also, for the record, if for some imbecilic reason, you feel the need to go cry over a pig, please don’t stick your fingers this close to its mouth. The pig isn’t nosing through the cage so it can receive her sweet, white tears. It’s going to gnaw off a digit.
(Fun story: I was really confused the first time I saw The Wizard of Oz because at the end of “Somewhere over the Rainbow,” Dorothy falls and the hands all freak out. I thought it was meant to convey how overprotective they were, until my mother explained to me, “no, honey, they’re scared because she fell into the pig pen, and if they don’t get her out of there, the pigs may kill her.”
But you know what? Actually, no, scratch that - if you really don’t understand how the food industry, ALL OF IT, even your middle class, hippy, local-sourced organic vegan nut loaf, is a product of racism, imperialism and slavery, then fuck it, go stick your fingers in a pig’s mouth. Stick your whole fucking hand in there. You deserve it.
In fact, while we’re at it, come down to Arizona, and we’ll go find some wild javelinas! They give extra special magic piggy kisses! With any luck, you’ll pick up a great new nickname, too! ”Stumpy!”
In short, dear fellow white people - WE FUCKING SUCK.
My buddy tellin’ it like it is.
