The story of Alex, and the domination of animals
Alex lives in a house all alone
Society has given  her a typical human  lifestyle:
The life of  isolation .
Alex thinks* her species is dominant to all others.  * This is what culture has taught her
*Any animal captured and domesticated by humans So, as a substitute for human love she decides to buy a pet*
A pet is a convenient solution for her need of affection and control, as she can:
Own Trade, and  Dispose of it  whenever and  however  she pleases
So she goes to a store that profits off of selling animals for companionship
The store clerk  recommends the  'prettiest' puppy  they have.
He reminds her that only attractive animals are worth anything
“ So what happens to the unattractive ones?” Alex asked
“ Well they rot in shelters, or are killed.” He replied, “It's not like they're any use to us”
This concept of killing animals disturbed her, and reminded her of something she had learned in history class...
“ Nazi men had kept, and sold the 'attractive' Jewish girls as prostitutes in their brothels
And the  un attractive ones?
They were useless, and so kept captive and killed.
Their body parts used as soap, lamp shades, and dog food”
The similarities disturbed her, and made her rethink other common human practices like...
Slaughterhouse workers: Murdering, dismembering bodies
Beauty Pageants: Selecting the prettiest, and most obedient to be pampered
Masculinity:  Dominating, and controlling women to  avoid vulnerability
“ Hey!, are you going to buy something?”
Alex was so in thought that she had forgotten she was still in the pet store
She left quickly, and did some research
After hours of research she realized she had to treat all other animals as  equal s
& so she reformed her life
She stopped  wearing ,  eating  and  owning  other creatures
Her conscience, health, and environment thanked her
And she lived her life as a  happy vegan
