    caring more about animals than humans is not a sign of empathy, it is a way to distance yourself from problems that makes you uncomfortable.

    when you talk about the treatment of animals and say “what if this was done to humans!?” remember that this was, or still is done to humans.

    I have zero patience for people who prioritize Veganism over anti-racism and feminism

    Exactly my stance.

    At the same time, though, this isn’t an excuse to ignore veganism and what’s happening to animals. It’s okay to care about animals *just as much* as humans.

    im an atheist because i think that science is wonderful and reality itself is so mysterious and wonderful that there is no need to believe in a god

    but if a philosophy and a belief system makes you appreciate life and makes you happy and you arent hurting anyone with it

    then god damn no one should be a shit to you about it

    How come you can only like a post once.
