what kind of world are we living in where extending your compassion towards all living things makes you an extremist
Vegans of Tumblr, if it was actually possible and you could only save one, who would you rather save? A child from a lifetime of slave labour in a sweatshop, or a chicken from being some chicken nuggets?
You know what is infinitely more fascinating than this absurd hypothetical question?
The fact that we have the ability to choose to save BOTH the child and the chicken, and overwhelmingly, most people choose to save neither, every. single. day.
thesadferrisbueller asked: Well for one, its not my decision if someone decides to call themselves vegan or not, I'm not the vegan ruler, I don't allow people to call themselves vegan or not call themselves vegan. I understand that what she did isn't right or technically vegan and I'm not saying people shouldn't criticize her for that. But acting like she's a bad person for it or that it's bad that she went "vegan" the way she did is dumb. Her decision either way is going to educate and raise a hell of a lot of awareness.
and if nothing else, its one less person contributing to the meat and dairy industry for however long, her and jay-z eat vegan. Also, who’s to say that it doesn’t make them decide to actual go vegan for their whole lives. I don’t understand why you would treat anyone entering into this lifestyle, even in smaller ways, like this.
Of course she is a bad person, she is wearing the skin of another sentient being as a clothing accessory, and before you pull the “she didn’t know” card, For the past 10 years PETA has been constantly heckling and educating Beyonce and other fur hags about the autrocities that occur on these farms.
Beyonce was quoted as saying:
“Celebrities know that the easiest way to keep PETA off their backs is by keeping fur off their backs.”
PETA Members have also confronted her in person and showed/ explain the process of obtaining fur from animals and the pain and suffering that they go through.
So now that we understand that education isn’t the problem lets try and find some other reasons that Beyonce is still wearing Fur…
Beyonce runs, with her mother their own successful clothing line that benefits from the sale of Fur items, there are also rumors (nothing that I can find enough evidence to prove 100%) that she also owns 2 fur farms in China to aid her clothing label.
That’s why she is a horrible person, that’s why she will NEVER be able to call herself a vegan whilst living the life that she does.
The more that Beyonce posts about her #22DayChallenge the more that people are going to believe that veganism is just a diet that can be taken lightly and that people are able to ‘cheat’ on just as they cheat on other diets.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again.
- Do not eat meat, dairy, fish, eggs, honey, carmine, anything related to any animal.
- Do not purchase cosmetics or toiletries tested on animals or containing animal products such as lanolin.
- Do not purchase or wear fur, silk, leather, wool,…
They are someone , not something!

Shoutout to myself a few years ago when I always said, “I could never go vegan, I love cheese too much!”
Today, as you see whitewashed images of a post-prison, unarmed, grandfatherly Mandela, please remember that he was someone who had the pride and courage to take up arms against his oppressor. Mandela fought in a guerilla war against white supremacy in South Africa, as did many others all across the world. Our own CIA alerted the SA authorities to Mandela’s location, which is what led to his 27 years behind bars and the medical condition which felled him today. Our government was responsible for that crime, and still holds our own anti-apartheid militants behind bars. So when you see Obama crying his crocodile tears later today remember that he would imprison a modern Mandela, that he arms the apartheid government of Israel, that he refuses to pardon those who fought against the corporations propping up the South African government here in the US, and that he has done everything he can to crush the kind of dissent that Mandela stood for.(via angry-hippo)
You only see what they want you to see, remember that.
what a powerful image
