It’s funny we condemn the two girls who caused “unnecessary” cruelty by hurling a kitten about, as seen on the BBC news recently, when we ourselves inflict “unnecessary” animal cruelty.

A vegan diet is cruelty-free and better for our health and the planet, yet we we still go on consuming meat, dairy and eggs.

It’s even funnier for us as Brighton has lots of vegan-friendly restaurants.

Dairy cows and egg-laying hens generally live longer than “meat” animals, but are treated worse.

They all end up being horribly killed to become meat anyway.

Cowardly abusing the kitten in this case was wrong.

But as we are, morally, the exact same as them, we really should keep our mouths shut.
