When I hear people say "I just love cheese too much to be vegan" I want to say something like "I just love groping too much to ask for consent." People would get fucking pissed though and it would probably be counterproductive. There's the other option of saying something like "I just think about what it would be like to be forcefully impregnated, have my child taken, and then my milk stolen and profited off of and I suddenly don't like it so much"
Is there any polite way to combat statements like these? Or do I just have to care about the cows more than making enemies with people I interact with regularly?
