i love how carnist have a problem with the tiniest percentage of vegans feeding their carnivorous pets a vegan diet but WONT SAY SHIT ABOUT MILLIONS COWS BEING FED CORN EVERY DAY, BIRDS BEING FORCED FED, TO THE POINT OF NOT EVEN BEING ABLE TO WALK. i’m laughing so hard because these people are saying vegans are abusing animals to fit their personal needs. WHAT WORLD ARE YOU LIVING IN??

Hi! I just had a very bad fight with my parents because they can't accept me being vegetarian! They keep saying that humans need meat and that I'm going to die! I said they were wrong and now they are asking for like, a list of food that I can eat, I'm tired of fighting with them and being ofended so, please, can you tell me some of the food I can eat like, daily? Please and thank you!! (And sorry if I wrote something wrong, I don't speak english very weel)

(first of all you can make a list of liveing vegetarians and vegans or something to show them that you dont need meat or animal products) literally any plants ever its really easy. beans, rice, lentils, carrots, peanuts, apples, pasta, tofu, spinach, bananas, oatmeal, cereal, salad, smoothies just off the top of my head

So I really want to be vegan, but I even struggle to be vegetarian. Meat just tastes way too good for me to give it up. I've been a vegetarian for about 2 days and I'm finding it hard, I want to make a slow transition from vegetarian to vegan...got any tips?

great job on being veg for 2 days, im so proud of you :)

ive never really liked meat so idk how you’re feeling about that. but i loved cheese and that was hard for me to give up. i reminded myself how gross it is and how much suffering it caused. try pretending that you are allergic to it and see how that goes. and remind yourself that you will feel so much better afterwords and you will be saving so many lives!! 

try some substitutes if you can afford it, i hear that beyond meat is really good in particular in tasting like real meat. 

best of luck and stay strong!!

 (and here is a post about going vegan slowly maybe that will help)

Fucking evolution did not happen to have these beautiful creatures be turned into shoes, coats, meals, or jackets.

Animal slaughter may have increased from a depressing and unacceptable .5 billion a year to a depressing and unacceptable 9.1 billion a year, but don’t fail to notice that it has been decreasing :) 

End the demand for slaughter.

End the demand for wasting government subsidies. 

Continue raising awareness and interest in veganism.

We can do this.

You can do this. Make the choice. Choose compassion, reason and logic. 

Go vegan. 

*vegan is not a diet.

For those that have a “well veganism doesn’t make any difference” mentality, check this out. We ARE making a difference.

Elliott was found wandering the streets of Brooklyn with a tag in his ear that said “MEAT.” He had recently escaped from a live animal market in New York.

He has since gained almost 50 pounds, and is growing strong enough to romp and play.

After massive flooding in the Midwest in 2008, thousands of pigs were abandoned in factory farms. Among them was Nikki, who managed to save herself and gave birth in a levee. She kept her babies safe until rescuers arrived.

She and her babies are still inseparable!

Opie was discarded and left to die from hypothermia by a dairy producer.

Gene Baur, founder of Farm Sanctuary, rescued Opie. He later went on to become the leader of Farm Sanctuary’s cattle herd for 18 years.
“When people get to know a farm animal, look into the eyes of a cow, a pig or a chicken, they see that they are not that different than cats or dogs. They are very much like the companion animals that people have in their houses,” Baur said. “They have memories, they develop relationships, they have complex emotional lives just like other animals.”

If you are not vegan and you reblog this, I will cut you

Not a vegan.

Cool.

So you realize if those chicks are males they are immediate killed. Normally by suffocation in trash bags or being ground up alive.

So you realize in the dairy industry, those newly born calfs are taken away from their mother to live the rest of their short lives in a small plastic hutch with barely enough room to walk only to be slaughtered for veal a few short months later.

So you realize that those piglets were probably born on a concrete floor and struggle to reach their mother for milk. Piglets often catch diseases in these unsterile conditions and die.

Cool that you think these animals are cute. But for you for funding the mass murder and cruelty of others exactly like them.

so i have to take some medications for my mental illness, but i think they were tested on animals, am i still a vegan or should i stop taking them?

always take care of yourself, and dont beat yourself up over it, okay? Of course you’re still vegan, there are just things out of our control and medication is one of them. i take some too, and even though they may have been tested on animals, i know that it’s best for my mental health and i cant function without them, and i cant fight for animal rights if i cant function. it’s tough but its something that we have to live with
