This “you can be vegan thing wherever you are no matter how poor” makes me so mad. I was in a small village living off rice and beans for half a year and I was so malnutritioned even when there was the opportunity to eat zebu once a week.

For people in this village agriculture was the most unsustainable thing to do and if you could just see with your own eyes how agriculture has gotten rid of 90% of Madagascar’s forest, you could feel the impact for yourself. Even though the waters are heavily over fished, people need the extra source of protein and omega three in their diets to survive.

Until you have lived everywhere and experienced different environments and cultures then please stop generalizing your way of life to make it appear that it fits in with everyone’s.

If a female student got drunk and had her car stolen the university would call the police. If she got drunk and had her computer stolen, they would call the police. If she got drunk and had her phone stolen, they would call the police. The fact that she was drunk would not even be factored in when assessing if a crime had been committed. But if she gets drunk and has her body invaded and her humanity stolen, school administrations are perplexed about what to do.
