Should we pull down Gore’s trout statue?

There were mixed reactions when this photo and headline, which first appeared in an anti-Vegan Facebook group as a hoax, was re-posted on a personal Facebook page.  For me, I laughed my head off!  After all, if statues of human abusers are deemed offensive, then statues honouring animal abuse are equally offensive. This pretend-threat by … Continue reading Should we pull down Gore’s trout statue?

“I want things to change (but not if I have to change)”

  I know violence isn’t good. In fact, I hate gratuitous violence. A boxing match, for example, repulses me. Even worse, it bores me. Yet, sometimes I feel like taking up a length of 4x2 wood (don’t know what that is in metrics) and ‘educating’ non-vegans with it. I know that’s un-PC, and un-everything that … Continue reading “I want things to change (but not if I have to change)”

Rocking the boat of conventional behaviour and habits is scary, and Vegans get a good ol’ growling at for it, more than they get cheered on. Somehow, … Continue reading Q: how can the vegan juggernaut be stopped? A: it can’t.

The moral dilemma of vegan poo

The headline read: “The Moral Dilemma Facing Vegans”. What moral dilemma would that be, I wondered? I have no moral dilemma about being a Vegan, and no other Vegan I know does, either. However, it appears that ex-professor of agribusiness, Dr Jacqueline Rowarth, and Dr Graeme Coles, a nutrition scientist who leans heavily on the … Continue reading The moral dilemma of vegan poo

“I live for the day when this becomes a problem.”

I got into an online debate yesterday about rodeo. Smack my hand! I tell myself NOT to do this, because the people arguing for rodeo live on an entirely different planet to me, to put it nicely. Nothing I say will encourage them to change their minds. I know – hard to believe, isn’t it? … Continue reading “I live for the day when this becomes a problem.”
