For vegans, there are a lot of frustrating contradictions about modern-day society that make us want to bang our heads against the wall. One of the most baffling is the intimate relationships many meat-eaters have with their pets.  Countless non-vegans claim to be huge animal lovers and obsess over their beloved cats and dogs. They’ll spend all day petting and pandering to their sacred pets – but yet they’ll still happily eat meat in every meal.

Well that’s exactly the hypocrisy @notalwaysso highlighted on Twitter, and the response struck a chord with fellow vegans. The post was widely shared on social media and led to some interesting debates. It also gave vegans the chance to offer insightful theories into how such widespread hypocrisy became common in today’s society.
