Dear “Bacon.” Troll,

First of all I would like to say thank you for taking the time to leave a comment on my blog, a blog you clearly have no interest in and yet took the time to fiddle around leaving a comment when I’m sure you are a busy bee with a lively & fulfilling social calendar, living your best life and being your best you. So thanks.

I would also like to commend you on your originality. Writing “Bacon.” on a Vegan website!? How did you come up with that!? Like, do you work in advertising, bruh!? That’s some next level shit that I’ve never heard before! What a trail blazer.

Or perhaps you’re a Lawyer, because you’re clearly very good at making an argument for your way of eating and living. All of this information that we Vegans put forward about animal rights and why it’s wrong to abuse and be cruel to animals, with pages and pages of reasoning and studies to back ourselves up (and of course, common sense), but there you are, just one word from you, “Bacon.” and god damn it if you aren’t right. Bacon.

I am pretty curious to know what you wanted to get from commenting “Bacon.” on here. Did you want me to give up my beliefs that animals have a right to not be abused and to eat some bacon? Did you want to remind me of the cruelty that exists in the world and that there are more than 65 million pigs on factory farms and 110 million are killed for food ever year? Or perhaps you want me to stop using my voice to stick up for the abused animals as it’s making you uncomfortable with your choices?

Well, I’m sorry my friend, I love pigs and I will never stop sticking up for them.

 

Did you know that pigs are smarter than dogs and are about as smart as a three year old human? Pigs are social, playful animals and they have a wide range of different oinks, squeals and grunts (each with its own distinctive meaning) that they use to communicate with each other. I think that’s pretty cool. They’re also ridiculously cute and sweet. They even like to snuggle up with each other.

This quote from Author of The Whole Hog, biologist and Johannesburg Zoo director Lyall Watson sums up pigs pretty sweetly, “I know of no other animals [who] are more consistently curious, more willing to explore new experiences, more ready to meet the world with open mouthed enthusiasm. Pigs, I have discovered, are incurable optimists and get a big kick out of just being.”

So, there you have it dear “Bacon.” Troll. If you would like to further educate yourself regarding the harm you are causing to animals, yourself and the planet I would like to offer you the following documentaries:

  1. Earthlings (for the animals)
  2. Vegucated (for your health)
  3. Cowspiracy (for the planet)

Perhaps this will give you some food for thought before you decide to comment “Bacon.” ever again.
