Anonymous said: Rape =/= eating animals... we tend to be civilized about animal consumption... we regulate, we put rules into place, we do things like that... sure they needs improvements still but the consumption of animals is common place amongst living animals on this plant... RAPE IS WRONG, RAPE IS BAD, it hurts people, more then physically, more then emotionally, it hurts them permanently, if you think eating animals is comparable I suggest you rethink your stance.

You think our consumption of animals is “regulated”? So much so that massive amounts of rainforest has been destroyed, millions of people die every year from diet-related illnesses caused largely by eating too much animal food? It only appears regulated because it’s socially sanctioned.

If you actually read what I posted, and what’s in the image, I would never say rape and eating animals are comparable. I did say that we use the same arguments to justify committing either of these moral injustices. One damages a person’s life permanently; the other tortures an animal its entire life and then ends that life. I see both of these as highly destructive, cruel, unnecessary acts borne out of selfishness and the inability to see an Other as an equal, having a right to live freely just as you do yourself. It makes sense that so many feminists are vegetarian or vegan: because they’ve realized society doesn’t care about the voices of animals, just as it doesn’t care about the voices of women or people in minority groups.

I don’t like alienating or offending people, but maybe I’ll have to get used to it since I got such a backlash from this post. It’s really saddening to me, how close-minded people are – considering that I made my argument in a respectful way and that I did not, nor would I ever, diminish the significance of rape as a crime. That was not my intention. My intention is to help people realize that so long as we continue slaughtering animals for our own convenience, we will perpetuate a violent and non-compassionate society that takes advantage of those whose voices we refuse to hear. /rant

You know that part in Guardians of the Galaxy where they tell Rocket that stealing’s wrong and he protests, “But what if I really, really want the thing? More than the person who has it?” And we laugh because we realize he’s taking an incomplete view of the issue. 
Yet this is the PRIMARY way we justify the maltreatment and slaughter of non-human animals for consumption, entertainment, style, and so on. You may really, really want to eat a chicken’s wings or a cow’s milk, or wear the cow’s skin over your own. You may even feel that it would be good for you to have those things. But by our own otherwise-accepted laws of morality you simply don’t have a right to them, nor (as science and experience show) do you need them.

This dressing is 3 small peaches, half of a small avocado, some lime juice, and chives from my windowsill.
