A film about what it feels like to be a vegan in today's society.

quote [ May 8, 2017 - "Norm" is a short film about two roommates debating over the morality of rape, in a society where raping women is legal and socially accepted.

Written and Directed by Miguel Endara ]

This hits so hard and true to the actual feelings.

. . . more that rape is somewhat morally analogous to killing animals for food.

Um. No. It's not. Not even close, imo. The entire skit was based on a false equivalency. A false equivalency that vegans want omnivores to adopt. It's also using fabricated guilt as leverage. It's disingenuous and manipulative.

And who said omnivores are intolerant of not meat eaters? If anything, vegans are intolerant of omnivores, usually acting morally superior. At least in my experience, anyway. This film is just another example of sanctimonious prothletising a personal interpretation of empathy and the food chain.

I wonder if vegans drink bottled water, use plastic belts and shoes, use the internet, smartphones, or fossil fuels. If society wants to start "feeling" for animals, start with what a territory in Belgium did. Ban Kosher and Halal meat slaughter rituals. Not to mention other socially acceptable behaviors that affect humans. Pets get treated better than humans do in many parts of the world because humans have an emotional connection with dogs or cats. Is that fair? Where does that fall on the empathy scale?
