Veg*ns getting angry to learn that plants have nervous systems

apparently acknowledging that plants are living creatures with a system of cells that acts as a nervous system and are able to form complex relationships with animals in order to further their own species is an argument against eating plants

Okay, guys, listen - I’m not saying you can’t eat plants, I’m saying if you’re going to grant the ability to feel pain and suffer to lobsters, which have no brains but a complex nervous system, and creatures such as sea urchins and starfish, which have no centralized nervous system but rather a distributed complex nervous system with no central brain, then the fact that scientists are discovering nervous system structures in plants that work similarly to our own should be blowing your mind.

But apparently it doesn’t matter because even if plants are sentient, they’re necessary to human survival and we can eat them, but we ‘don’t need’ to eat animals so they get to be free. Right. 

It’s really funny really.

    This was written a while back while I was on an angry kick, to be true. Killing plants is not the same as killing...

    You don’t interfere with a plants bodily autonomy when you harvest seeds and fruits and other external limbs from it...
