You know what doesn't help animals? Sitting on your ass apologizing for the carnists and trying to protect them. Why would you even try defending carnists? Had you been a non-human by birth they would have treated you as an inferior.
You're assuming violence in the name of animal rights is wrong. It's not. Violence is a very effective means to achieve animal rights, as well. When people realize that their lives are at stake by choosing to go to work at a vivisection laboratory, fur farm, slaughter house or a fast food restaurant, they'll quit working.
No amount of 'non-violence' (don't even know what you're talking about, the ALF has not engaged in ANY violence - four of their members DIED fighting for animal rights) will work on some carnists, in fact most of the people profiting off of exploiting animals know what they're doing is wrong and what why your against it - why would you even think that there would be some peaceful way to change these carnist bigots minds? Arguing with these psychotic carnists is a waste of time.
This is the dead giveaway that you have no idea what you're talking about. 'Militant' animal rights activism has closed down fur farms, gotten more people to join the movement, shed light to how animals are treated on in laboratories and freed many animals.
The law and what animal rights activists are labeled become irrelevant once you get into the ethics of what is being done. Remember the law is written by carnists, working or getting lobbied by other carnists who are making big profits from exploiting animals.
I personally live by 'do unto others as you would have done to yourself', which in my opinion is greater that 'non-violence' because if somebody is treating others violently, they should be treated violently. Not be given a pat on the back and told 'Don't worry, buddy; I believe in non-violence - even though I don't agree with your choices'.
