I mean we're totally off topic I guess, but what particularly do you not like about it? I understand that you enjoy meat, and perhaps you're part of the camp that think it's unsustainable and we couldn't survive without it. But it's really not true. Eggs, meat, they are all not required to live, and in a society where we should strive to be the best we possibly can, why not change that too?
I loved what he said. I thought it was much bigger than being just about veganism. It was about injustice of all kinds and having compassion for all species. The vegan debate always divides- though with shows like the Netflix Game Changers, a lot more people seem to be coming plant-based. It's certainly much more part of mainstream discourse. So many actors are political. As he said he's using his voice for the voiceless. I applaud that. I found it very moving, especially when he spoke about his brother. He knows that he won't change everyone's hearts and a lot of people will deride him for it. But he felt it deeply so he said it. Good for him. (I am not a vegan).

It's not just a 'personal choice' if that decision impacts the life of another living being. If it infringes on what she be their rights as our fellow animals.
Nobody needs them, therefore they're not essentials.
That's literally the definition of vegetarianism right there :facepalm: And anyway we don't want people to consume less meat - we want people to consume no meat, or any other animal product whatsoever. We don't think it's acceptable that people simply do less of a bad thing - we think that it is only right that people stop doing the bad thing altogether. Just like you wouldn't suggest to a serial killer 'perhaps try murdering only 2 or 3 people a year', it is unthinkable for us to propose a person continue to promote the abuse of any animal they can avoid doing that to.
I'm not even a vegan (pescatarian) but why are you saying "we" like you speak for every vegan out there? You make it out like it's some sort of religion. Some vegans will appreciate the effort of meat-eaters for cutting down, because meat may be a big part of their diet. You're alienating people you could potentially "convert" by saying they should consume no meat. By consuming less, it may lead them to a gradual path of veganism. That being said, I do respect the ideology of veganism a lot - animal cruelty is an awful thing.

sorry but why are you here? this thread is about HIM

I think he's pretty talented -> very good antagonist in the film Gladiator
Sorry, I still don't know who you're talking about.
Why wasn't the question asked about certain actions or opinions?
Then anyone who has the necessary brain capacity, would have adressed that, and now, only those who know this person and watch this person's action's can adress it, regardless of their capability.

No, I'm progressive. I don't see any difference between men and women.

Therefore, it doesn't matter what pronoun do I use.

I will never quit to eat meat. Apart from that: I am not eating meat every day in the week. I have reduced this consume at a good minimum and I feel good with it.

I disagree with Joacquin Phoenix and think that a balanced nutrition needs not only vegan food.
