Do you think it is hypocritical to condone domestic animal abuse but still eat meat? via /r/vegan


Do you think it is hypocritical to condone domestic animal abuse but still eat meat?

I own an Instagram page with a lot of followers, and a recent video I posted of a cat was getting labelled as ‘abuse’ when it was if anything a minor inconvenience for the cat.

I commented saying: ‘before labelling this as abuse, ensure that you are vegan. Or does abuse only matter when it is domesticated animals?’

Do you think I was right in saying this? Personally I think it’s hypocritical to be labelling something so minor as abuse and then proceeding to post about your juicy steak you enjoyed last night.

Edit: I meant condemn not condone oops

Edit no. 2: Thanks for all of the (respectful) input. For those not so respectful, that's a reflection on you – I was having a kind and civil discussion and asking for genuine advice. Especially the user who found it appropriate to make a joke about childhood sexual abuse, you are not as morally superior as you may believe. Otherwise, have a good day everyone.
