hah don't worry i constantly fight with people over facebook over this subject..
literally for the past two days i have been in a "debate" with people because i posted an angry status that said
"don't ever say you love animals if you eat them,
that's like me saying i love people but being a serial killer"
obviously.. carnists did not like that
i got abused, but i have a fair few vegans on there that agreed and backed me up (thankfully)
i did not insult anyone, all i did was say the truth and every point they put forward
i smashed out of the park with logic.
once we got past the normal "but we were made to eat meat" "if we didn't eat meat the world would starve" "being vegetarian makes you sick"
there was a girl whom i was best friends with in high school, it hit a nerve because she thinks she does heaps for animals.. obviously influenced by her mother (whom i later got into an argument with after she posted a nasty status about me)
she said "i get my meat from a halal butcher" and i sourced her information from a person who used to work in a halal slaughterhouse...
as the "debate" progressed, she turned to personal insults..
it didn't really bother me, because i haven't seen her in years.
i do understand why people can't handle the truth, she obviously knew i was right and was just grabbing any excuse to prove me wrong.
but even if she did find one flaw in my argument, that wouldn't mean she won...
and to turn to personal insults.. then being childish and posting a status calling me a crazy vegan b*itch
well i'd rather be crazy vegan and a female dog, than a selfish human.
sorry, haha it just really makes me so mad
"oh i save puppys and kittys so that means i can eat other innocent animals"
AGHHHH /anger over
keep up the fight guys, veganism is about raising awareness and calling people out on their hypocrisy.
if people hate you for telling the truth
who gives a damn?
we are doing the right thing
