zeldahippytits asked: "Eliminating meat and diary is too radical. I try to reduce consumption though and stick to the veggies and fruits with the least amount of pesticides." It's not too radical for the millions of people who do it. It's not too radical to imagine a world without the torture and slaughter of kind and gentle creatures. It's not too radical - you just don't care enough.
It is too radical.. and I don’t care enough, if you wanna say that.
Are you claiming that plants are not “kind and gentle creatures”? On what basis do you discriminate?
Like it or not, you have to eat something that’s alive, or was alive not long before you’d be eating it. You can’t eat rocks, and discriminating against plants just because they cannot express pain like animals do seems like a far greater crime. It’s much like hitting a mute person.
