Response to Beringia (Reply #13)

14. Veganism is not about guilt. Quite the contrary.

Feeling guilty does nothing for animals. It only makes you feel better about yourself. You support the torture and slaughter of an innocent animal who wanted to be free; you enjoy your burger; then you talk online about how guilty you felt to distinguish yourself as superior to everyone else who ate a hamburger today.

This is the vegan, vegetarian and animal rights forum, and the vast majority of the threads are about dogs, cats, and whales. After years of watching it without saying anything, I finally decide Iíve had enough of the hypocrisy, and Iím criticized by a non-vegan for being rude!

There is nothing rude about pointing out hypocrisy. Anyone who is driven to keep supporting the torture and killing of animals because of my post is just trying to shift the responsibility for their actions onto others.

Itís not that hard to say no to exploitation and suffering. If you really want to do the right thing, you will do it.
