The Letter I Never Sent

The Letter I Never Sent

[The YouTube channel], you guys are funny and educational.  I’ve followed you for several years already, and I have probably gotten your name out there more than anyone between my workplace, my website, my friends, and everyone at all of the gyms in my area.  I know all of your slogans, nuances, facial expressions, and even some of your regular contributors.  This is your first video that just made me feel sick to the core in every fiber of my body.  It is one thing for vegans and meat eaters to disagree, but it is a whole separate issue to mock the suffering of the animals.  I was about to ask you if maybe you would be interested in doing a special video on vegan bodybuilders or supplements for my site.  I haven’t eaten dead animals since the age of four, and people think that I’m close to twenty years less in age (I’m in my later thirties).  I went vegetarian for the animals then, and nine years ago, I went vegan. I didn’t know that cows suffered and died for my cheese, so I instantly gave it up.  Within a short period, I was breaking my old weightlifting numbers and destroying my former race times from way back in college.  But, like you said, being vegan was never about nutrition.  That’s just a side benefit.  It is about respecting the lives of all beings to be free from fear, harm, and death.  I have helped countless people go vegan, and I would be happy to correspond as a friend or if you would rather just get tips on how to replace dead animals with mock meats and other vegan options.  I can provide resources to websites, books, documentaries, etc.  I never write this much on YouTube, and I don’t know if you even read the comments, but I really want you to know that I’m a die-hard [YouTube channel’s name] fan… I even stick up for you guys when I have to! LOL  But, please don’t show the dead bones of the chickens, talk about it being in your teeth, and so on.  It’s low, man.  I’m kind of big in the animal rights scene… I’ve seen a lot.  Animals fight with every last breath to live.  There is no such thing as free-range, grass-fed, happy animals that are slaughtered.  They want to live.  I have regular contributors to my own website, Vegan Fierce, that draw parallels between human and animal suffering.  At first, you will likely take the approach that you cannot compare humans to animals, but the truth is that humans used to be compared to animals prior to the African American Civil Rights Movement, during the Women’s Liberation of the 1920’s, during the Jewish Holocaust, and even during the more recent Gay Equality struggle.  Everything from the making fun, enslaving, torture, killing, selling, etc. of beings is nearly identical.  Please give what I’m saying a fair bit of understanding.  It is so easy to turn a blind eye to the truth.  The meat and dairy industry brainwash us to believe that we need dead animals and their secretions to survive.  It simply is not true.  If anything, casein, which is in all dairy, propels the growth of cancer tumors… And, no, the lions will not attack humans in the wild as you suggest.  They eat meat to survive.  Humans have grocery stores, and we can be kind by eating what comes down from the trees and up from the ground.  There are countless athletes who are vegan that are not just equal to dead animal eaters, but far surpass them, including the fastest male AND female runners, the strongest male AND female bodybuilders, the most famous living boxer of all time, and even many Olympians, baseball, and football players.  It used to be taboo to even come out in public that sports players are vegan, but now, they are coming out in massive droves.  Anyhow, I think you guys are very talented… I really do.  Just watch Earthlings or Gary Yourofsky’s speech on YouTube.  Those are just for starters.  You can tell by the length and seriousness of this post that I’m not trolling and am a real fan of your work… You guys rock! Remember, animals are here WITH us, not FOR us.  My site can be found at www.veganfierce.com  Please feel free to read, watch videos, and so on.  Thanks for the years of entertainment, [their names].  Paul 🙂

To the readers of Vegan Fierce: Everything above is true that I wrote. I have been a long-time fan of these guys. However, I do not turn my back on the animals.

About the author

I began this website as a way to showcase that going vegan is easy, cost-effective, delicious, and most importantly, fun. No animal has to suffer or die for a meal. Since the age of four, I have not eaten meat. I learned at a young age that the family puppy shared the same types of emotions as wild animals and farm animals. I never thought that it was okay to exploit them. Twelve years ago, I gave up cheese, not knowing the suffering through which cows had gone. I am dedicated to the vegan lifestyle, animal advocacy, and in furthering the social justice movements for all people, animals, and the planet. I am pleased to announce that since this blog began in 2014, there are many more vegan businesses from restaurants, a fully vegan shopping center, a school that only serves vegan food, and a vegan medical center. Although I have no affiliation with them, I feel that it is noteworthy to say that the movement is growing, and I hope to see the property status of animals one day change to acknowledge them as "persons," not things.
