SO CRY GHOST, BABY.: What's the Deal with Dairy? →
sheisthehuntress: Any person can understand why vegetarians don’t eat meat, even if they don’t necessarily agree with it. After all, meat is the flesh of an animal, and we’ve probably all seen a slaughterhouse video or two by now. However, some people are completely appalled by the fact that vegans choose not to…

Talking veganism & what it is to be me I was asked this today. Instead of answering with a simple yes I said, ‘Sort of. I used to be vegetarian but now I’m trying to avoid milk stuff.’ What kind of answer is that? I don’t know what came over me then. My shyness and awkwardness generally causes me to make a fool out of myself. They were eating cheeses, chocolates, and lollies, all of which were...
I am not just a vegan animal rights activist. →
vegetivorous: I am also a feminist, anti-racism, anti-homophobia, pro-LGBT rights, pro-equality on every level, pro-fair trade, anti-capitalist and a human rights activist. As far as I’m concerned, all these things go hand in hand. You cannot truly be one without being all the others. I live for the day we are one nation, on people, and treat our fellow Earthlings as equals. I live for the...
Totally going to hand in a terrible essay for five days late tomorrow. Totally going to not do physics prepatory work. Totally only going to get four hours sleep tonight. Totally am too tired to write properly. Shouldn’t be typing this when I still have 100 words to write. Totally not happy about my life in general, not just uni. But thankful that this pain will temporarily subside at the...
“I don’t know more than my readers do about how people should act, about how the world should be. My responsibility, and it is the single responsibility but an enormous one, is to write as deeply and completely as I can about what it’s like to be a person who is not you. What it’s like to be the people I write about and that includes a willingness to go into the hearts and...

University, you will be the death of me. It’s ironic that I came to you in order to help me live my life the way I want to. So studying has taken up so much of my time. The upside is that I only have to endure a little over a month of this before I am free! Free! FREE! …for about 6 weeks… but still FREE! Maintenant, what am I doing? Studying.

‘To use the world’s resources in an egalitarian and environmentally sustainable way, widespread vegetarianism is ideal. Compared to vegetarian diets, omnivorous diets require significantly more water, land, and energy to produce the same amount of food, and create a greater amount of pollution and waste. Most humans who are poor—a sizeable percentage of all humans—are already...

For those of us who live at the shoreline standing upon the constant edges of decision crucial and alone for those of us who cannot indulge the passing dreams of choice who love in doorways coming and going in the hours between dawns looking inward and outward at once before and after seeking a now that can breed futures like bread in our children’s mouths so their dreams will not...
Vegan Agents: Agent two's Top Ten Reasons to be... →
Haha! Hilarious. I especially like 1, 2, 5, 6, 9. veganagents: 1. It’s fun to annoy and alienate your friends with smug, self righteous comments like “do you know how many animals were murdered just so you could eat that?” Or sometimes just mildly vomiting at the site of their cheese-smothered beef burger is quite effective. 2. It gets you out of stuff you don’t want to do. Awkward...
