Re: Silly people

Veganism is about all animals, not just the cute ones.

Maybe you don't have animal blood on your hands, but life itself is a competition for resources and the chance to breed.

My burger means a cow got to breed, have offspring, and live in relative comfort and safety, if for a short time. Your veggie burger denied any cows life, and by you eating the veggie burger, you denied that food to either cows or other organisms. As for "not just the cute ones", I doubt that vegans can avoid treading on ants, nor are they happy to cohabit with rats.
