vegan warning

anonymous asked:

Honestly i keep forgetting that americas meat and milk is kept in feedlots. Most of australias beef, lamb, dairy, and wool eats grass, only getting hard feed/hay during hard times :/ its weird

america’s meat & diary industries are abominable

idk about other places but it’s pretty much sickening here unless you’re butchering your own food in your backyard

my roommate andy hurley

Warning: vegan rant

I was at this event last night hosted by the SPCA and there were no vegan options for food and I’ve been a vegan for a long time and a vegetarian for even longer so I understand not having options it happens all the time but it’s just IRONIC that I was at an event to help animals but all of the food offered there either was an animal or contained animal products like let’s save cats and dogs but fuck everything else right??

@ people who are saying they hate me bc i’m a “pretentious fuck who never shuts up about veganism”:
you are on *my* blog, a vegan blog with a vegan username (fair warning in my book). you are the ones commenting on *my* posts.

we live in a world of big macs, bbqs, aquariums, and leather shoes. we live in a society built on the exploitation of the vulnerable. if you want to avoid hearing about veganism, don’t follow vegans. blacklist tags or even block us. just understand that we don’t have that option. we live in a world where our minds, hearts and senses are constantly assaulted by animal abuse and exploitation. by the smell of cooking flesh and the images of their dead bodies neatly packaged on shelves. it is all around us. it is never ending and it is entirely unavoidable for us. part of why i even have this blog is because of that fact.

so yes, i use *my* vegan blog to talk about what i believe in. if that makes you hate me, so be it. but you are expending your energy in the wrong place. it doesn’t matter if you hate me or not. none of this is about you.

Do you eat food that says "may contain traces of milk/ egg/..."?

Yes, I do. These warnings are in place for allergen reasons, they are to warn that there is the possibility of cross-contamination due to the factory in question handling milk/eggs as well as the product you’re consuming, not that the product itself contains milk/eggs. This is similar to the warning about nuts on pretty much everything you buy, producers put this on for legal reasons even when there is almost no chance that the product you’re eating will have come into contact with nuts. If you have allergies then this is best to avoid, but in terms of veganism this warning is on almost everything and these products are perfectly fine to eat. Just check ingredients or do a quick google search to be sure.
