what does this mean to you?
my mom was getting angry about veganism (again) and she was like “why do they eat bread? yeast is a living culture! what about their precious veggies and plants! they were alive!” and so, after heaving a heavy sigh, i explained the most basic principles of veganism to my mom (animals feel pain and emotion, and so many consider it cruel the way we go about consuming them as a product, etc…) and then my mom was like “BUT HOW DO YOU KNOW THAT PLANTS DONT FEEL EMOTION TOO!” and i wanted to cry at her response.
plants don’t have neurological function, they do not feel pain or emotion. *swears profoundly*
