"Not enough for me? You are everything."
my hobbies include eating and complaining that i’m getting fat
I am that type of douchebag friend who doesn’t talk with you for weeks but still cares about you and hopes you still care too.
I’m grateful that my eyes were opened. I’m grateful I can see past society’s conditioning, that I don’t view animals as objects, that I have no desire, any longer, to eat their bodies or their fluids. I’m only sad that so many people value the taste of an animal’s body more than their life. I can only hope that as time passes, more and more people will evolve past using animals, just as we have evolved and are still evolving in so many other ways.
Just a little reminder why I’m a vegetarian.
Just a little reminder why I am turning vegan.
yep, these are Holstein Friesians (which is the breed mostly used for dairy)
As cows are mammals, they like you… have to Give birth to produce milk. In the Dairy industry male calves (and often female calves, as they only need one cow to replace her mother) are considered wastage and sold to the highest bidder or sent straight to slaughter. (remember the dairy industry is a profit driven business, they do not want extra mouths sucking up their profits)
I volunteer at a Farm Sanctuary where one of the calves was about to have his head bashed in by the farmer, a pair of twins (male and female) were due for the next slaughter truck..
The reality is world wide the Dairy industry has millions of victims, the mothers and the bobby calves (all wastage and killed not for meat, but because they are not worth anything as meat) So if you are vegetarian for these babies, you NEED to go vegan.
There are plenty of vegan alternatives to cheese, milk, yogurt etc and you do not need the lactation meant for baby calves.

offically booked Robert Cheeke to speak at the vegan festival :)
Breaking news: When people first get to see the live animal who (they think) is being killed for their food, they don’t want to eat it.
If you’re looking for a good bit of entertainment, watch this prank video. You will either die laughing, or will be staring off in shock asking yourself, "What do they think meat is made out of?"
the epitome of cognitive dissonance- apparently they only like it when it happens behind closed doors and they dont have to think about who they’re eating
This is just so perfect. People literally still have dead animal parts in their mouths while they’re getting upset at this man for “killing” the baby pig. If this doesn’t illustrate the hypocrisy of “loving animals” but eating meat, then I don’t know what will.
This is so revealing. Not one of them tried to rationally defend it, not one mentioned the food chain, or nutrition. They all knew in their bones, right away, that what they were seeing was wrong. They are just usually not there to see the process.
