Hi everyone 🤗 ❤
Extremism ɪkˈstriːmɪz(ə)m,ɛkˈstriːmɪz(ə)m/noun: "The holding of extreme political or religious views; fanaticism."
I remember the first time I was called an extremist because I went vegan. I remember how it made me feel awful while I am incredible proud to be vegan, but I wasn't able to answer 🥀 I remember every single time and every person who said it to me in person or online (a lot more often online because it is easier to call people names while you're somewhere else) 👺
After a while I was able to answer 🌷 I am extremely proud to fight for the rights and the lives of all animals on our earth (as I am grateful for all those people who raised their voices in the past for the rights of women, homosexuals,...) ✊ Today I stand on the side of the oppressed and there is absolutely nothing wrong with that 😙
P.S. Veganism isn't a belief (analysing the definition of extremism). Veganism is based on facts: animals are being exploited and slaughtered, humans suffer from a lot more diseases, way too many people are starving, our climate changes, ... We have the power to do something about all those things because we are humans, we are intelligent, we can be so ambitious, we should be noble, we have to take care 🌱
P.S. Very happy late happy Earthday 🌍
