Just gave birth to twins. I switched from a vegetarian diet to a carnivorous diet now, post pregnancy, switching back to a vegan diet. I have a very strong meaningful reason for choosing a vegan lifestyle, it makes me who I am.
During a fight my husband mocked me crying about what I saw in the "Vegucated" video: animals being brutally mistreated.
His actions hurt me so badly. I feel terribly betrayed. He mocked my tears and pain as if they were a funny joke. Not to mention his insensitivity towards animal abuse..

Frankly, the fact that most people don't care about the torture of billions of animals that happens on a daily basis just so we can have something that tastes nice, and in fact make the torture continue by buying factory farm meat, is absolutely beyond me.
Do you have pets or does your husband like certain animals (cats/dogs)? Maybe you can help him understand by telling him it's just like people torturing and killing those animals. If he saw someone brutally torturing and killing a dog, surely that would shock him? Most people (for some bizarre reason) are much more sensitive to this than to the idea of people doing similar harm to pigs, cows, and chickens.
Alternatively, you could explain that pigs are just as intelligent as human toddlers and can suffer like humans. The difference between humans and other mammals is not that huge when it comes to the way they suffer. Would he be OK with billions of children being raised and killed in factory farms? I'm sure he would abhor that idea.
Good luck, and congratulations on the twins!1
