If a vegan pushes their ideals on anyone else- It automatically is a colonialist action.
White people destroyed land, communities, language, history, and identities through extreme violence. They then made their priorities important while trampling the rights of others.
They did not respect animal husbandry practices of indigenous people.
Now privileged asshats are guilting others for eating meat when they have zero care about indigenous, poor, poc, trans, queer, or disabled bodies.
If you don’t want to eat animal products- great. That means you are in a position of PRIVILEGE to do so.
But, forcing this view on others is bullshit. It is oppressive. It is heinous. And it negates the history of people who’s land has been stolen through violence and cultural genocide.
“Non-veganism” is a survival for tons of folx.
Expecting others to become vegan overlooks their possible cultural heritage, financial situation, and ability. Caring more about veganism than these issues is fucking wrong. And since there are so many people that are treated as less than human only to have ‘animal rights’ thrown in their face, when their lives and livelihood are in constant jeopardy, is beyond fucking cruel.
