Your freedom cannot extend so far that it stomps on the freedom of someone else. That’s not freedom, that’s oppression.
I’ll give you an example.
When I say “we should be able to choose freely who we have sex with,” I mean we should not be restricted to gender, race, nationality, etc. What I don’t mean is you get to have sex with whoever you want regardless of whether they want it - that’s rape. Would you say not being allowed to rape is restricting your freedom to have sex with whoever you want?
Similarly, when I say “you can eat whatever you want,” I mean you can choose from the variety of grains, fruits, vegetables, etc. What I don’t mean is you get to slaughter a living, breathing being. Would you say not being allowed to kill is restricting your freedom to eat whatever you want?
I’m not trying to make people feel bad just for the sake of it - I tell people the facts and I tell them my opinion - if the reality of your actions makes you feel bad then maybe you’re doing something bad. You have the opportunity to change it.
"Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better." - Maya Angelou
Freedom is not about ignoring or preventing the freedom of others, regardless of what ethical label it falls under. No feminist, humanist, egalitarian or human rights activists is given jurisdiction by their creed to oppress others.
