rubbish article created to instill doubt in people's mind with misinformation. Veganism is not a diet first f all, it is an ETHICAL stance against animal use. Secondly, a vegan diet means NO ANIMAL PRODUCTS whatsoever.... Last time i checked, fishes are not vegetables... It is very black or white, no controversy here. Eating fish IS NOT vegan. Fishes do feel pain and can suffer thanks to their central nervous system.
You are either vegan, or you are not. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sht7hiwC2Q8
Let’s start first with the definition of veganism so we know what we are talking about: It is a way of living which seeks to exclude, as far as is possible and practicable, all forms of exploitation of, and cruelty to, animals for food, clothing or any other purpose.
It says nothing about health, the environment or the individual that decide to subscribe to this way of living.
What is it then? It is a ethical stance against animal use. Why? Because the animals we exploit, torture and kill for their secretion and/or flesh are innocent, defenseless, sentient beings that do not want to die, just like us.
Therefore, if we do not NEED to condemn them to those atrocities, that we can have enough of perfectly viable alternatives, why would we do it? Taste, tradition, convenience, habits? Would those reason still stand if the victim was different? Our companion animal for example? Or even ourselves?
If not, why this double standard? Because of lack of empathy? The same exact empathy that we have when we are kids and free of any kind of discrimination and indoctrination?
Are you aware of the carnism concept? Take a look here, and realise that animal products are a product of unnecessary violence:
i am back!
