Why the fuck am I vegan? – The downside they don’t tell you about.

All of this lady’s posts are great (regardless of any “profanity”). There aren’t many articles, so it should be easy for anyone to read and learn from them all…


People don’t tell you about the downside. They talk about the incredible health benefits and the reduction of risk for heart disease and cancers. They talk about how it supports the planet because animal agriculture is the leading cause of deforestation, species extinction, habitat loss, ocean dead zones and greenhouse gas emissions. They tell you about how you’re no longer contributing to the horrific torture, mutilation and misery in the everyday lives of innocent animals and the horror they endure in the slaughterhouse.

Granted. There’s no denying that.

So then being vegan must be awesome… right?!

    1. Yes she did, and in less than two years of being vegan (at the time of that article in 2016), she’d seen it all and then some, and in England where they’re supposed to be more vegan friendly!

      1. I would have left “fuck” out of the title, though. I know it’s difficult to find words to adequately express the level of frustration and anger, knowing what we know, and I sling around the four, five, and seven-letter words quite a bit myself, but in private. It may be that this is how the younger generation speaks, and they don’t have any qualms about it, but I do lament the loss of proper language. I’d gladly part with it, though, if, in exchange, there would be no more cruelty or suffering.

        1. I think if there were no more cruelty/suffering, people would all be too elated & peaceful to need to swear. I find it disturbing when certain words that refer to sex/gender/body parts are used as scathing insults. And I often do it too; swearing seems to relieve frustration & anger. But I don’t swear in public much. I think using the “F” bomb and such reveals most people’s unspoken resentment of the whole mating game. If cruelty & suffering existed no more, that resentment would be gone too. But it looks like we’re stuck with cruelty & suffering on Earth (what I call purgatory). People who deliberately…sadistically…add to that suffering and who don’t change are only setting themselves up for HELL.
