The Vegan Society answers some tricky questions. I didn’t love all the answers, but it’s nice to have a baseline response.
GGA compiles the comfiest vegan shoes this summer. (Like, cute comfy, not comfy comfy.)
Activating empathy. Voting starts soon!
Paleoveganology compares speciesism to creationism; argues for conversational intolerance. ”In short, we’ve been acting like the burden of proof lies with us. But it doesn’t, and we really ought to start acting like it doesn’t.”
Remember that infuriating “Giving up the V-Card” post? Our self proclaimed archenemy over at Let Them Eat Meat interviewed the author, David Cain. Once again, Cain alludes to this all or nothing mentality which I don’t believe in. And once again, he says some really insightful things. I especially like his points about how humans aren’t really rational, so using rational arguments is kind of a waste. Benj liked this too, and he’s pretty much the expert on vegan activism.
Upcoming vegan events:
17 days, 16 hours, and 38 minutes to Vegan Fest! (I may or may not have a google countdown going…)
*Also, I can’t believe I forgot this, but Madison Vegan Drinks tomorrow night, Tex Tubbs, 6:30 - 9!
