My response to the “Vegan” controversy

as you all know, Kat started some controversy yesterday with a tweet:

It’s hard for me to empathize with those who are upset about the recent killing of an innocent lion, yet choose to eat animals.
The only difference between Cecil the lion, and all the animals killed for meat: NONE.
The only difference between what Dr. Walter Palmer did to an animal, and how an animal dies in order to serve those who consciously choose to eat meat: NONE.

Regardless of all the lies our country’s FDA, medical industry, and media force upon us – it is our responsibility to seek out the truth for ourselves, and make life changes individually.
Don’t tell me “I can’t live without my steak.” Don’t tell me “It’s hard because of [insert excuse here].” Don’t tell me “It’s good for your health” when Science has proven the opposite.
Don’t lie to yourself that there is a “humane” way of killing a living being.

Today, she did a 30 minute youtube video explaining what she meant:

Instead of trying to keep up with responding to the influx of comments on yesterday’s post [regarding the “Vegan” controversy], I uploaded a video response for you, [the link is in my bio]. I took note of all the reoccurring comments/negativity to make sure I responded to each of the points, honestly and openly, in hopes that no one is left feeling unheard. You can watch it – or you can not watch it. Either way, you won’t see me fight you on the matter.
With Love. X
