“Until animal advocates react with as much outrage to the promotion of ‘happy’ exploitation as we all react to the promotion of ‘happy’ pedophilia, there will be no real animal rights movement.”

~ Gary L. Francione

“Animal exploitation is so deeply embedded in our society, culture, and history that we are not used to viewing it as on the same level as other forms of discrimination. If anything is ever to change, we are going to have to *think* our way out of this mess and be clear we cannot justify the use of animals—however ‘humane’ our treatment may be. As long as we are not recoiling from characterizing animal corpses and animal products as a ‘luxury,’ or accepting that we do not have to be vegan when we find it ‘very difficult, very inconvenient,’ we have not even started the process.”
