It’s because we are serious; because mass murder, mass torture, mass enslavement, mass exploitation, mass pollution, mass disease, and mass starvation are massively encouraged, socially accepted, and taught to children. I’d say that’s something to be pretty serious about.
I have become less angry about it in the past couple of years for a couple reasons. When I say angry, I’ll explain why….It first started a couple years ago in high school when one of my friends began showing me videos and different things by PETA2. I began cutting out meats/dairy/animal tested products/never wanted to buy fur ever but as for leather, that was not going to be bought. I wanted to make an honest effort to do the best that I could, and it wasn’t hard to do. Other people though, they didn’t care, and they’d eat meat in front of me and be like OMGSH DELICIOUS!!!!! and it was just like awesome thanks for being complete a-holes about everything. I was furious at everyone because of their carelessness, but the more angry I got, the less they even wanted to listen. Recently, I just do what I want, and I’ve noticed that attracts people more because they’re curious. I don’t know about all of you, but when I first learned about all of this stuff, I cried, and the fact that I was upset and no one cared, really made me angry. So, when something is meaningful to you, you’re serious about it, and others should respect that.
I agree with keepTHEfaith. Once you realize the cruelty of the world it’s hard not to take animal rights seriously. I routinely get into arguments with my family over this….people just need to open their eyes. Ignorance is really bliss…but not for the ones victimized.
I think its because we don’t have the same perspective on the world that we used to. I know I sure don’t ! I used to think that things were fine with our world. When I became a vegan I learnt about everything and it just hit me so hard, so fast. We’re serious about the causes we fight for 🙂
