"Plants Feel Pain Too" Gary Yourofsky's Take

Check out What Gary Yourofsky has to say about the ever annoying meat eater argument- "plants feel pain too. Share this with any meat eater who throws that at you and I bet you anything he will be speechless :)

It's a long read but SO worth it!

“When meat-eaters run out of excuses to eat dead animals, they usually spew one of two inanities. First, they promulgate respect for the vegan lifestyle, and ask for some respect in return. Of course flesh-eaters respect the vegan way.…

Common Meat Eater Arguments Debunked: Part 1

Whether said as jokes, or even said seriously- these are a few 'argument' points that I've encountered in my time being a vegan. To each their own, but these are a few favorites I just had to tackle :)

"But the cows would be in pain and die if we didn't milk them"



No, No they would not die. Cows produce milk for one reason and one reason only- for their young. Cows in dairy farm settings are forcibly bred year after year; a constant cycle of…

Why I became a Veggi :)

I became vegetarian because i can't see the cruelty to animals and it broke my heart when i see the videos of PETA or so and they show me what i've supported all the years. But since some months I made a cut. I sais to me I can't do this anymore. I think it's a good thing to not support something like that and i'm proud to say that i'm not a part of the cruelty to animals because it's something that not all can say because they close their eyes to the truth. I'm not anymore someone like this…

This Is the Thanks They Get

After years of birthing babies and pumping out thousands of gallons of milk, do cows used for their milk get a comfy retirement? No. - They get sent to slaughter, where, in the words of one slaughterhouse worker, they "die piece by piece." A longtime slaughterhouse worker said he frequently cut the legs off completely conscious cows who blinked and made noises as their bodies were hacked…

In Memory of Mary: Advocating Against Circus Abuse

"On September 11, 1916, a hotel worker named Red Eldridge was hired as an assistant elephant trainer by the circus. On the evening of September 12 he was killed by Mary…

The true costs of FUR- Visual realities of the fur trade.

Hand picked by the future owners of their furs, these beautiful animals will now either be murdered by breaking their spines, skinned alive, or killed by anal electrocutions (during which an electrically charged steel rod is inserted into the animal's rectum, literally frying his or her insides) - the real price of fur, and the reality of fur farms.…

"Anti Abortion is way more important than animal rights!"

I have no idea why, but as of late I've been running into a LOT of religious nut jobs (note: not everyone who has a religion is a nut job by any means, However-these particular people are insane. Nor do you have to be religious to be pro life & vice versa) and I've been getting a ton of flack for my veganism and animal rights campaigning.

The most recent thing to send me over the edge was a comment made by someone (lets call her Nutty Woman) about abortion.  Nutty woman informed…

Vegan Superpowers

I've finally been vegan long enough that I now have super cool new powers. That's right, you become psychic. For example: I've gotten my parents to replace spaghetti and meat-balls with a vegan recipe that they really love, and they buy a certain vegan brand for the veggie balls, which is available here. Today my mom made some, and I bring one of them up to my face- pause- then ask her to see the box. Turns out she'd bought the wrong brand, and I came within an inch of eating egg, LOL. Yup,…

Vegan and Vegitarian Drive-Thru

I've found Taco Bell to be my absolute favorite place to go to get a good bite to eat, while keeping it meat free, and animal product free. They allow you to substitute your meat for their vegitarian refried beans. So many items on the menu can become vegitarian friendly with this option. What different foods do you order from fast food places that serve meat, or do you avoid it altogether?

Substitute rice, or beans for meat at Taco Bell
