Vegan, straight-edge, urban explorer.

I post a lot of pictures of my dog.



This is a cage-free egg farm. This supplier would be allowed to also call this farm “humanely raised” and depending on the feed, call it organic. Does it look humane to you? Does it look like they have any more space than a battery cage? They’re still debeaked. Still de-toed. The males are still ground up alive! And they’re still slaughtered. So what could possibly make this “humane”? That’s right, nothing.

This is so important. The “free range” myth is a marketing scheme!

It’s really fucked up what these companies can get away with in regards to marketing within the “animal agriculture” industry. That’s why I think it’s so important that people educate themselves on where their food ACTUALLY comes from. 
For anyone interested, Jonathan Safran Foer’s Eating Animals is a good read. It’s written very objectively and it’s incredible informative. 
(All humane issues aside though because it’s already clear how I feel about that.)

I’ve been up since 4am and I have 3.5 hours left of this class and then another studio from 4 to 10. I’m going to pass out on my keyboard.





id like think im an alternative badass girl who doesn’t give a fuck and doesnt live by societys rules, but in reality i do all my homework and never back talk teachers and i say “please” and “thank you” and “sorry” way too much.

this post is making me rethink my life why

Hermione Granger did all of those things and was still a total badass

Anonymous said: Hi I'm a vegan but I'm a vegan for the health. I feel amazing. I'm getting oral surgery done this weekend and I have to fast on that day. I'm planning on going to a buffet the night before. I won't be able to eat normally for a while. Anyways I'm wondering do you think it's okay if I eat whatever at the buffet?(non vegan food) Normally I would make sure I eat vegan wherever I go but for some reason I feel like letting go.I guess because Im looking forward to a lot of pain. What do you think?




you’re not a vegan, you follow a plant based diet - I don’t really have any thoughts x

this ask needs to be filed under “how not to vegan” this is why veganism is so confusing to people because plant-based dieters use the term loosely. I was confused about it for a long time, too. 

I was lucky enough that the first time I heard about veganism was in an animal rights setting. I think it’s becoming harder and harder for people to avoid hearing about “vegan diets” a.k.a. plant-based diets primarily for weight-loss purposes, especially now that so many celebrities adopt the so-called “vegan diet” when they are spokespeople for cosmetics companies that test on animals, or wear exotic animal skins as a sign of wealth/status, or support non-vegan practices and beliefs in other ways.

We’ve just got to keep trying, and even if you end up feeling like a broken record, make it important to say “veganism is not a diet, eating plant-based for health reasons is not veganism”.
