I have known quite a few devoted vegetarians. Not the sort who one day decided to not eat red meat but still eat fish or the sort that only eats chicken.
I am talking about the real McCoy’s!
They have NEVER ingested any flesh of any kind in their lives!
It may be for religious reasons, cultural reasons or just because they were brought up that way and now it’s a real choice.
IF you try to entice one of the TRUE vegetarians to “just take a bite” they will look at you as if you have two heads. THEY would never even consider that they should follow your advice.
The WHOLE rest of the world could be consuming meat but they will still honor their beliefs. I have seen true vegetarians settle for just plain rice to avoid the chance of a mishap.
I would like to invite everyone, the whole world, to NOT accept Gender Violence with the same unwavering convictions as the vegetarians exhibit when offered meat.
Let’s speak up and say NO.
Let’s stick to our morals around gender violence and try to convince others about the beauty of a non-violent world.
Let’s not waiver if “maybe it’s right sometimes” or not. Let’s know it is never right. NEVER.
Even if a culture says it’s ok for a father to kill a girl for bringing shame on a family. It is still not right.
Even if a culture agrees that a woman must “obey” and she is found wavering in the obedience department, it is still not right.
It is NEVER right.
Love and light,
