Hint: it's not so I can order a vegan wedding cake.
Veganism is most certainly in the news! It's just never about veganism, really.
A look at our confused thinking when it comes to how and why we use animals.
No hooks for hands, no phantom entanglements, just the suggestion of the United States food system shifting to support people eating nothing but plants.
Meat is not the problem, all animal products are the problem.
Mythology is coming to Vegandale!
A University is going to supply what it’s dollars..er..students demand of them.
What self-serving inanity!
How can we ever expect to help others go vegan if we don’t have leaders with six or more weeks of sort-of experience on the subject?
Someone who actually promotes veganism promotes only veganism.
Use is harm and that's of any animal, in any way.
Creative, non-violent vegan education, means talking to hundreds of people in one day and other times, it means talking to one.
To say that one is a “veggie-vegan” is to make the nonsensical claim that one is a non-vegan-vegan.
The vegan food hangover is real and we're counting down the days until we get to do it all over again.
Our aversion to specific foods is not for what it will do to our bodies, but what supporting the creation of that item means for all animals.
The supposedly (and I stress “supposedly”) idyllic conditions for cows on “ahimsa farms” do not in any way justify their exploitation.
We have convinced ourselves that killing animals is ethical, especially if we wait 46 days.
Animal advocates need to be more aware of the realities surrounding these laws.
When we reject human injustice, nobody needs to go on a "journey" to get to that point. Where animals are concerned, we're all too eager to pack the car, don the sunglasses and go for ride before we see the truth of what has been in front of us the entire time.
Creative education, in the context of social justice, simply means creating a mental space, a field of consciousness, from which the person feels stimulated to engage or hear what you have to say.
