There is nothing more insulting to the animals that “a vegan” that encourages people to eat “organic”/”free-range” meat just because “they know not everyone wants to go vegan”. 

We all know that, and just because someone don’t want to go vegan is not reason enough for you “as vegan” to encourage people to keep doing it, it doesn’t matter if they don’t change, if you support it and you call yourself a vegan you are no more than a hypocrite. It’s fine that some people don’t want to be activists or “push the vegan views on others”, but for the sake of the animals and the vegan movement, it’s better to leave it that way than starting to spread the “organic” farms bullshit propaganda, you are not helping, seriously. 

Since many of you already know, I have been working on some changes for my blog, I want to focus more in the positive rather than the negative as well to include a lot more topics that I don’t bring that much. One of the things that is bothering me is the name; as a perfectionist and web designer its difficult to me to make a decision 😂 so I have been thinking and the only name I like is Powered by Plants? Is just that I’m facing so many changes and transformations and I feel I want to make a few changes here too, since this is a very important part of my life.  What do you guys think about it?

I think one of the reasons people hate vegans so much is because so long as we aren’t around, they aren’t really making a decision. In a group of meat eaters, no one is having to decide about whether or not to partake in eating flesh, it is the rule and the norm of the groups and involved no moral judgements. But as soon as a vegan arrives, suddenly there are those who eat animals and those who don’t. A distinction must be made and staying in that group becomes a moral decision; suddenly they go from just “eaters,” to “meat eaters” and it is no longer an unnamed norm.

This is why a vegan can be silent and still be accused of showing their beliefs down people’s throats. It’s why a vegan can be a “live and let live” apologist and still be resented. This is why they mock us, revile us and invade our spaces. Consciously or not, we remind them that eating animals is a choice.

I just wanted to drop by to let you know how much I appreciate your work here and I'm fucking sure you're doing more and more research all the time you're just awesome. As a vegan I'm proud to have such a source to check in order to get more information on lifestyle and diet, and you're also very honest and open. Thank you! You're appreciated much xx Keep it up! Vegan hugs xx hihi

Hey vallentine13 ! Thank you so much, this really means a lot! You guys are the best, all the positivity you bring here is amazing and just makes me want to keep working hard. 

Interesting how a person if asked if they would kill an animal to eat they would be horrified and say no, but have absolutely no problem paying money for someone else to do it. People who partake in the suffering and killing of sentient beings have no right to be shielded from the reality of the industries they support.

You wouldn’t kill an animal yourself but why are you paying someone else to do it? Think about the process. You are killing animals for a few moments of palate pleasure and that is all. Realize what you are paying for and participating in. Question your actions and stop harming animals for unnecessary pleasure.

“Don’t compare animal abuse or factory farming to ANY form of human oppression! It’s belittling and racist!“

Yeah sorry, but as a black woman who is directly descended from slaves/ the slave trade and has to deal with the ripple effect, modern day institutionalized racism, sexism that’s always racist and racism that’s always sexist, every single day, I have every fucking right to make whatever parallels to those practices I see fit. It only bothers you because you refuse to see animals as valuable and worthy, and refuse to take their exploitation and abuse seriously, so of course someone suggesting that animal exploitation is just as bad as human oppression isn’t going to sit well with you. You can’t continue to use/ abuse them once they’re on that level, so it’s necessary to make sure their pain is ALWAYS beneath that of humans; always something to be written off; always simply less important.

And Fuck your bullshit definition of what racism is. So because I’m equally as opposed to treating humans like products as I am treating animals like products that means I’m devaluing humans & a racist? Wrong. I’m putting animals on the level of people where they rightfully belong. Where not a single one of you can even explain why it’s supposedly wrong to elevate them our level. Instead, you guys literally do nothing but emotionally respond with “OH NOOOO those crazy animal rights people value all life equally! what evil monsters! how could you!!?!”

I don’t need any of you telling me what or how to think, nor do I accept your flimsy and baseless accusations of racism, sexism, classcism, ableism or whatever else you want to throw out to absolve yourself of ever having to treat animals with respect.

FUCK YOU and your selfish, heartless, “humans are the center of the world” thought policing & keep that shit away from me. Get the fuck over yourselves and your idea that your views of value are the end all be all no one must ever question.

its so easy to be vegan and i never knew it!! there are so many foods that i think people dont know are vegan.... i didnt know oreos were vegan. i suggested to all of my friends to go vegan for lent and i think they will continue even after lent is over!

Hi anon! So nice to read this, you are so right! Being vegan is easy, once you start living it you start discovering how easy it is! I hope your friends can see that too ;)

See those vegans over there? The people fighting against unnecessary animal cruelty and environmental degradation? The people saying that all individuals have an inherent right to life, and that personal desire is not a valid reason to violate that right to life?
What a bunch of entitled assholes.

If you consume dairy you support the routine child theft of countless mother cows all around the world. I’ve heard many horrible noises in my time and nothing, nothing compares to the sound of a mother cow bellowing for her stolen young. It’s a sound that will stay eith you for years and ti this day it’s all I hear whenever I see someone consuming dairy. Ditch the dairy, Go Vegan.
