Everyone sees blackfish and shares it and is all “yeah! raise awareness about this and boycott seaworld woo, fuck keeping whales in bath tubs”
And then they refuse to see earthlings or any other exposure video on animal agriculture.
Trying to raise awareness about the other animal exploitation industries is “self righteous”. Apparently those are “personal choices” and you should just “live and let live”.
Everyone will praise Sea shepherd for going out and actively stopping whalers from killing whales, they’ll sign petitions to stop the taji dolphin slaughter, but god damn those vegans for ever talking about the suffering of pigs and cows and chickens. DON’T YOU KNOW THAT’S A PERSONAL CHOICE?
They’ll scream about china keeping dogs and cats in cages and killing them to eat, but don’t give a fuck about the animals in their own country who are treated just as fucking bad. In fact they will purposely not watch videos exposing these practices because they don’t want to give up “their meat” or “their dairy”.
The speciesism and hypocrisy of humans is doing my head in.
Stop only pointing the finger at others, and take a look in the mirror. Stop only supporting issues which literally require no sacrifice from you, and start making changes that YOU HAVE A DIRECT EFFECT ON.
Don’t ever try to play that “I have it worse than you do” game with people. Don’t ever try to minimize someone else’s problems or invalidate their feelings just because you or someone else may have it worse. To imply that their problems “aren’t that bad” or their feelings are “irrational” is very insulting and unnecessarily rude. That’s an insensitive, inconsiderate and horrible thing to do to someone. Don’t be that jackass.
