What is difficult…

 

 

“Being vegan must be so difficult.”…

In reality, taking a few seconds to read ingredients, to look for a brand that doesn’t test on animals, or to find clothing that isn’t derived from an animal is hardly an inconvenience compared to what the animals are forced to endure.

What IS difficult is seeing the dairy industry through the eyes of a female cow: being forcibly impregnated, having your baby taken away and then aching for them, being hooked to a milking machine, and having the cycle repeat until your body physically cannot take it anymore.

What IS difficult is seeing through the eyes of a male calf: being ripped away from your mom, being forced to live chained to a tiny crate and rarely getting exercise, receiving milk replacer instead of your mom’s milk, and being killed at as young as three weeks old for veal.

 

What IS difficult is seeing the egg industry through the eyes of a hen: having your body manipulated to lay an unnatural amount of eggs, dying from having eggs backed up in your oviduct, having the highest rate of ovarian cancer out of any animal species because your body is overproducing, and being crammed inside a tiny cage with several others while covered in faeces.

 

What IS difficult is seeing through the eyes of a male chick: being gassed or ground up alive simply because your body isn’t perceived as resourceful to the human species.

What IS difficult is seeing the meat industry through the eyes of pigs, cows, chickens, and other land animals: knowing you are about to die because you can smell the blood and hear the screams of others, being stunned (which usually takes multiple tries), and having your throat slit or being gassed alive, all just so you can wind up on someone’s plate.

What IS difficult is seeing the seafood industry through the eyes of fish, crabs, and other sea animals: having your gills collapse and your eyes pop out from painful decompression, being suffocated, being crammed in floating sea cages or ponds with hundreds of thousands of others, facing infections and diseases, being starved for days before slaughter, and then being slaughtered, all just so you can wind up on someone’s plate.

 

 

What IS difficult is what all non-human animals face under speciesism.

As vegans, all we do is align our morals to include them.

….and when we recall the last journey to the agonizing death of the 70,000 living creatures of “Midia,” not only we find it difficult to accept it, but we find it as a crime against any morality, decency and progress of a civilized society.

What IS difficult is to accept that 7 billion human carnivores are allowed to decide about the life and death of the “other animals”.

My best regards to all, Venus
