also referred to as vegetable liberationists, believe that the most basic interests of non-animals should be afforded the same consideration as the similar interests of human beings. Advocates approach the issue from different philosophical positions, but agree that vegetables should be viewed as non-human persons and members of the moral community, and should not be used as food, clothing, research subjects, or entertainment.
Vegetarians don't know how much carrots and potatoes suffer when they are being skinned alive, they have no way of expressing their pain. Potato peelers are implements of torture. I'm a Vegetable Rights Activist that's why I eat meat.
