“Why is vegan such a hot button issue for you?”
he asked me on a planet that’s overheating, when I and we love animals, and shouldn’t want to casually torture and murder them.
For the same reason slave labor in our coffee and chocolate matters.
Racism and sexism and anti-Semitism and anti-immigrant and all other other-ism matters.
They’re all different, on different levels, but they’re all part of the violence of this world, paths we can wake up from if we’re willing to stop viewing them as okay. ~
