Pointing out that the separation of Cecil the Lion from other sentient animals is arbitrary is *not* about shaming those expressing outrage and disgust for his death. That’s an appropriate and honestly deserved reaction. It’s about using that emotional outpouring as a venue for helping make the connection that *EVERY* unjustly murdered being deserves outrage, deserves voices crying out in objection, deserves picketing and tears and yelling till we lose our own voices.

It’s an opportunity to give a name and a face to those who’ve never been granted such an innate right, or at least had their names and faces ignored, marginalized, hidden from view and completely denied.

We *have* to look at the discontinuity of our actions if we’re going to heal our planet and ourselves and finally grant freedom to all beings. Yes it’s painful, yes we resist, yes we want to look at *anything* but ourselves. We want to point the finger and throw our rage at others when it’s our very actions on a daily basis that cause the most disquiet within us and around us.

Growth hurts. But continuing to put others through physical and mental anguish so that we don’t have to face our own faults is no solution. It’s the *very* least we owe the animals to take a hard look at the harm we are causing and rectify our actions. For more, see http://www.BiteSizeVegan.com/CecilTheLion

It’s time for our third annual vegan thanksliving benefit shirt! Last year we raised over $1000 for Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary, let’s top that this year! As always, we will only print as many shirts as are ordered so you MUST pre order to get one of these. All orders come with a free @tofurky coupon booklet. We are doing this two months earlier than the previous years so our Canadian friends can get theirs in time for Thanksgiving and our US friends can wear them for several months up until the holiday. #vegan #compassionco #whatveganswear #animalrights #govegan

Yesterday I went to an animal sanctuary with @coconut_katie @charlotteswvrld @plvntstrong and @the.sunflower.soul and we met this beautiful boy galloping down the field like a little puppy to meet us!😻

This guy is LOVING LIFE! Every time you choose to purchase meat items, you’re taking away an animal’s potential to love life as much as this cutie is.

Do you look at him and start to salivate? Do you feel the urge to shove a knife into him and put him on your plate? That is what you’re paying for every time you consume meat.

This pig was predetermined to die in a slaughter house and he was one in a million that was lucky enough to escape and be rescued. Stop being ignorant to the murder that occurs behind slaughter house walls… If you don’t support murder, don’t buy into it.

You cannot call yourself an animal lover and then stick a knife into them for dinner .. #govegan

Is anyone interested in going vegan for the month of August? I would love to help anyone considering making the transition! I usually do a monthly challenge since it gives people the opportunity to experience the vegan lifestyle without having to fully commit to anything yet. This allows people to see how easy & amazing the lifestyle is so many people end up sticking with it! If you would be interested message me and check out my IG post! I would love to host the challenge through IG for anyone who is interested and willing :) 

Okay. So I’m going to sound like one of those annoying tween white chicks who want to sound all cool and what not, and say something I never would normally actually say … But - OMG I CAN’T EVEN !!!

Actual sex in a bowl ❤

I am absolutely DISGUSTED!! We should be ashamed of ourselves as humans, exploiting and murdering other beings for our own selfishness and greed. Walter James Palmer, a dentist from Minnesota has paid £35,000 to shoot and KILL this beloved lion from Hwange National Park. He has even BOASTED about how he has slaughtered the 13 year old lion, Cecil. A worker from the conservation task force even said that Cecil “never bothered anybody and was one of the most beautiful animals to look at”. Animals are not legally allowed to be killed inside parks, so he was lured outside, SHOT and BEDHEADED and SKINNED the next day. I cannot believe that we continue to treat animals this way, cutting the lives of these beautiful and innocent beings short. What makes their lives any less valuable than ours?! It absolutely breaks my heart seeing others in pain and suffering so this has definitely broken me and made me even more doubtful about other humans. #fuckyouwalterpalmer #GOVEGAN #loveALLbeings #fuckspeciesism #justiceforcecil

Good afternoons😇😇 Its hard for me to comprehend when seeing people put their diet out as if you dont eat that way then you cant achieve your healthy lifestyle/goals. What’s most important is being happy/positive mentally and physically. Stressing constantly about whats “good” and “bad” is negative & does effect you whether you realise it or not. Dead animal flesh is unhealthy, animal products are unhealthy, modified fake foods full of chemicals that come from fast food franchises are unhealthy. What’s not unhealthy is PLANT BASED FOOD. Avocado A DAMN PLANT, bread, coconut oil, other oils, nuts and seeds and all other things portrayed as death traps are merely the least of your worries. Moderation is the key, not in the sense of restrictions and but instead spreading that certain food out and eating a variety. Have bread every day, have avocado every day, have whatever plant based foods. The only way it could be unhealthy is if thats the ONLY food you’re consuming and you’re not getting nutrients from other foods.
My experience was making excuses; although i did get turned off bread for awhile because before vegan i ate so much of it with cheese but when i did start to enjoy bread again i told myself that I’m gonna get bloated and constipated and it’s going to make me feel bad. When in fact me telling myself that was bad. I was so caught up answering Tumblr questions trying to fit into what everyone wanted and everyone’s expectations of a vegan diet being hclf and 80/10/10. Since turning my Tumblr ask off and not dealing with heaps of stress from that I’ve come to realise that all these foods aren’t bad. I eat whatever i feel like (vegan ofc) and feel great from it. Just ensuring i always include a variety of foods makes me feel 110%. Enjoy what YOU really love, find what works for YOU and don’t be afraid of foods that come from the earth and focus more energy into BEING A COMPASSIONATE AND POSITIVE VEGAN🌏🐮🐷🐓 #govegan #vegan
