Help Me Peta2: Wrapping It All Up

Hey gURLs—it’s Rachel here, and it’s my final blog with you for peta2 month here at gURL.com. I’m so excited to have been able to chat with you all (no matter how heated it got!) about animal rights, how we can help, and why exactly people decide to go vegan. 

I’m sure more than a few of you are still on the fence—and some of you are even offended by me saying that no, you can’t really eat meat and care about animals—but the point I’m trying to get across is that we are all powerful. Every gURL has choices to make in her life, and you can either choose to live compassionately, or support an industry no one really agrees with.

I once ate meat, wore leather, bought dogs from breeders, and used products that were tested on animals; I once argued that we were on the “top of the food chain” and that animals on factory farms “were treated well” … but then I learned. It’s OK to admit your mistakes—all gURLs have them, but now that you know how animals are treated on factory farms before they make it to your plate, you have a choice.

I feel good every day knowing that I’m living by my values. I consider myself a caring, compassionate, understanding person. The meat, dairy, egg, animal testing, circus, and other industries that exploit animals are against those values. They go against everything I hold dear—and I think everything most of you value as well. As gURLs, we should stand up and fight for what we know is right, and against things we know are wrong—no matter how unpopular it may be.

Stay loud!
