Horrifying to imagine, isn’t it? Yet ‘I love cheese’ apparently excuses such practices.
WOW LETS BLOW THIS WAY OUT OF PROPORTION SHALL WE?
This is a pretty powerful image… does this make you angry? Uncomfortable?
Good. It should.
Sadly, sometimes it takes putting the torture we put animals through into human terms to make people understand how sickening the milk industry is. There’s no difference between this photo and one of a dairy cow. Life is life, motherhood is motherhood, and suffering is suffering, and damn right it should make everyone who sees this angry and uncomfortable.
If this picture angers you or saddens you, but you don’t examine why beyond “oh god that’s awful this is so exaggerated how dare you suggest you do that to humans animals just aren’t like that”, you need to realize that that mindset is the reason for the injustice here. If this picture angers you and you still think its okay to drink milk and eat cheese, you need to realize that your hypocrisy is not victimless. Your hypocrisy kills.
If you ever wondered about the common grounds between veganism and feminism, here is one: milk cows get treated this way because of - and through - their female anatomy. They are raped, imprisoned and objectified in the most literal of terms, in ways that most human women will never experience.
…You’re kidding, right? You have to be kidding. You can’t be seriously be co-opting feminism and applying it to animals.
What white vegans need to fucking recognize is that this shit DID happen to human women. During slavery, black women were raped by their slave owners and then had their children ripped away from them and sold. They were forced to breastfeed the babies of their slave owners. White people like to get all fucking tender about animals (and try to connect it to feminism which I will never fucking understand) without stopping for 5 seconds to consider that there are human beings who have been and ARE STILL BEING treated much worse.
jesus fucking christ.
reblogging for the last comment
that shit it still happening to human females
also cows aren’t oppressed because they’re female, they’re oppressed because they’re animals. human females are oppressed because they are seen as sub-human; more animal than man.
