Referring to an animal as “meat” divorces the animal from any identity except as a product for consumption. “Meat” is the language of objectification — an attempt to turn a someone into a something. But this is inaccurate. Animals are not inanimate objects; they are sentient beings with specific interests, desires and subjective awareness. Referring to animals as “meat” disconnects us from the reality of the animal and thus disconnects us from the reality that certain food choices exploit and harm animals.
“Plants are alive too”
A puppy in one hand
A vegetable in the other
You have to choose which one to stab.
Like any sane person, I’m going to go ahead and assume you chose the vegetable. Why? Because you fucking know damn well that vegetables aren’t alive like animals are.
Stop trivializing and mocking the suffering of non human animals by butting into conversations pretending to care about the fucking well being of carrots
