It isn’t that there aren’t valid, convincing, and non-dehumanizing arguments for veganism, it’s that overall white vegans just don’t make them. If you care about this cause, it is painfully obvious to me that you likely shouldn’t speak for it as you’re continuing to represent it in a horribly white supremacist and colonial fashion, which seems to be a consistent problem with your type.

This was a travesty and an offense to read.
