i didn’t know there were 400k vegans on this site?
You don’t have to be a vegan to be against animal cruelty
I’m against needless cruelty, with two caveats:
1. I include humans in the list of animals we shouldn’t be cruel to. Humans are some of the most brilliant, most intelligent, most thoughtful and most heartwarming animals any of us has ever had the pleasure of meeting, and I can’t stand it when groups like PETA start abusing them in the name of “animal rights”.
2. I’m all for domestication and research and stuff. Why? Because humanity is going to the stars, and when we get off this planet, we’ll become functionally immortal as a species. No single event could possibly wipe us all out. We will have kicked mass extinction as a possibility right in the face, and any animals we depend on, any animals we use for food or research or companionship will be going with us and they will be safe from extinction too.
