Warning: This might be a hard pill to swallow for some but hear me out. My opinion is not meant to take away from the brilliant and important work being done by meat-eating environmentalists.
Speciesism is the unspoken, most of the time unknown, assumption that humans are superior to non-human animals. It is an attitude that allows, and even encourages, the mistreatment of animals.
Animal agriculture is not only bad for the animals that are bred into existence for the sole purpose of being slaughtered, but it’s also bad for both the environment and human health as well.
Plant-based meat is here to stay. With growing popularity, these cruelty-free options are presenting meat eaters and vegans alike with delicious options on their mission to end animal farming.
Veganism and animal rights deserve more coverage in the mainstream media. But the fact that veganism makes people confront the consequences of their choices prevents widespread coverage.
