Dear Vegans: Please Stop Comparing Factory Farming to the Holocaust

If you're in the vegan world, you are probably familiar with the comparison. It may have even come from my own mouth at one point, to be fair (Although, in my defense, I was probably sixteen).
I don't want to ramble on and on about this, but it's a comment that progressively bothers me every time I hear it. Although the comparison is relatively non-offensive if you regard animal life with the same value as human life; the rest of the world  hears a degrading slur against holocaust victims.
There are plenty of effective ways to advocate for animals without degrading a group of people. Think about it.

End of rant.
