im so pro-selfie like there are so many bigger problems in the world than girls who think theyre pretty
one of those problems is girls who dont think theyre pretty
It seems like lately a lot of people have taken to the internet to berate people who openly try and encourage cruelty free beauty products.
While i’m not surprised because morons will pick any old cause to angrily push onto people in order to alienate and belittle them (example), i wanted to address it anyway.
Ideally, yes, nobody would eat meat/ own leather goods/ use non-cruelty free beauty products but sadly this is the world we live in; and just as we can’t rewind history and make things turn out differently, we can’t insult people into changing either… when does that ever work out for you?
Lets not be so focused on everyone being the perfect vegan citizen that we ignore any progress being made and in turn take a huge step backwards by making people think that vegans are assholes.
I understand its upsetting that some people don’t have a clue what their lifestyle does to encourage animal cruelty but perhaps try openly explaining to them what that does to the animals and suggest alternatives.
Yes, people might have previously purchased leather, not realized there was milk in something or owned an eyeliner from a company that is owned by one of the big testers but if its obvious that their ultimate goal is to find cruelty free alternatives, just simply point it out to them and offer an alternative.
People slip up, its going to happen. Our society doesn’t always make it easy to figure out the cruelty-free options but don’t make it worse by making people feel bad that they didn’t get it right the first time.
Just as you are showing compassion to animals, try showing 1/8 of that to the people you see making mistakes because they don’t know or have been raised with misinformation and perhaps you will be able to educate them instead of alienate them.
If you are trying to veganize your diet/ skincare/ beauty… i applaud you and any changes you are able to make, i think thats awesome and keep it up. Its hard to navigate the vegan jungle sometimes but don’t be afraid to ask for help for fear that someone will make you feel like an idiot. You’re trying.
I should note there are also the angry meat eaters that try and catch people out; to you i’d like to say perhaps you should take a long hard look at your lifestyle before criticizing someone else’s. If you’re so happy with your life, why do you need to try and justify it by picking at someone else? Try a veggie burger, you might like it.
Who else misses Tumblr before it was this?
foxes eating rabbits or lions catching antelope
is not in any way shape or form
the same thing
as people mass producing, forcefully breeding non-human animals, and slaughtering them by the hundreds of millions to be packaged into plastic wrapped cartons for you to buy from a store that you drove your car to
