1. Keep small animal carrier, can of cat food, and old towel in trunk at all times.
2. Rescue strays/small animals when encountered and transport them to appropriate animal services center or veterinarian if possible.
(Of course, don’t be a hero, and abort mission if animal seems even slightly dangerous/aggressive and call animal control)
3. Keep animal control number in glovebox at all times.
(I just keep on finding myself in situations were an animal, usually an injured cat, is hanging out near my home or work place and I’m the only one who’s going to do anything about it.)
Anyone else have any thoughts?
After making a delicious vegan breakfast (faux sausage, tofu scramble, and broccoli) you read the packaging and realize that you’re in danger of getting TOO MUCH PROTEIN.
people bitch about veganism being a white privilege/exclusively upper, upper middle and middle class, and white.
what about all of the vegans of color?
what about all of the vegans of the lower class?
what about all of the people who eat a vegan diet because it’s the only option that they have? and the “vegan” foods that originated in other countries?
soy milk- china/japan
almond milk- region stretching from the iberian peninsula to east asia
rice milk/horchata- spain
(all from wikipedia)
not to mention all of the ethnic food that is vegan or easily vegan.
are you going to disregard these people (as they are often used to) and pretend they don’t exist (as they are often used to) because you need an argument to justify your selfish diet? are you going to assume that these people are incapable of recognizing the benefits of veganism and making decisions that benefit themselves, others, animals, and the environment?
as someone who grew up in a poor, rural area and lives below poverty/on and off food stamps, i find it so frustrating when people accuse vegans of class and white privilege. i don’t think i could afford to eat meat and cheese and eggs if i wanted to. not to mention that the quality (both health and taste) of cheap animal products is awful, and i probably eat a lot healthier as a vegan than i would trying to eat a cheap omnivorous diet.
Hey, I understand that people have differing views on things. And hey, you can be a vegan/vegetarian whatever you want. There’s nothing wrong with that, at all.
It becomes a problem when you start forcing your ideas and beliefs onto other people.
So stop doing that.
Stop trying to make people feel bad for eating meat just because it’s offensive to you.
LOL You think I’m offended, think about how offended the animals are!
