This is why I will never support animal charities or political parties that ‘sell out’ animal rights and persuade us into giving them donations, yet point blank refusing to advocate for Veganism, with some even expressing outright opposition to Veganism.
Animal Rights surely equates to explicitly standing against all forms of animal. exploitation, even knowing this would not happen overnight. This is exactly what we do with all human rights issues in that we take a stand demanding immediate end to these injustices.
How ridiculous does it sound if we were to have a campaign against racism, but then say “we cannot tell people what to say or do and even if they cut back some of their racism then that’s their personal choice and we respect that”.
….if you find it hard to cut back your sexism maybe try “sexist free Sunday”.
