“Mmm bacon!” is one of the most frequently spoken insults that a meat eater can make to a vegan. It is worse than insulting us for our race or religion. It isn’t about just an insult. Rather, it mocks the suffering of animals and calls for their death in order to create a “snack.”
How do I view people who eat animals? Eating animals is exactly the same as taking a child and beating them… Except one goes a step further and kills them… Turns a blind eye… And tells vegans, “I respect your right to be vegan. Respect my right to eat meat.” That is no different than saying “I respect your right to free the slaves. Respect my right to own them.”
Then, the appeal to nature fallacies begin with lions, our flat teeth they call sharp, and what humans have always done in the past. When they eventually lose the argument, then it becomes about privilege and whether the vegan speaking has a right to make comparisons. Once that is done, “Mmm bacon” comments are once again made. In time, people eventually change, who say they never will, but they can’t deny the truth… They know.
Murder is murder. A vegan doesn’t kill. Our consciences are clear. Standing up for the oppressed is not extreme. Slitting the throats, gassing, and torturing animals is extreme. Ordering fast food and meat in grocery stores is extreme. Babies cry. The meat bought in stores are ALL babies, not that age matters from a right to live perspective, but they’re just… Babies.
