Comedienne Sarah Silverman showed her support for Saudi women getting behind the wheel via her Twitter page this weekend. She tweeted:

Sarah Silverman @SarahKSilverman19h

“RT @amnesty Support Saudi women today while they defy driving ban.” 

Silverman linked to Amnesty International’s support page for the women in Saudi Arabia who are fighting for change. Saudi Arabia is the only country in the world that bans women from driving, forcing them to be dependent on men to do any task that requires transportation. Lifting the ban would give women more independence, make it easier for them to get to school or work, and also transport their children to school.

On October 26th, many women in Saudi Arabia buckled up to fight for their freedom by getting on the road, even though doing so could get them arrested or harassed. Many women are continuing to drive, and some of the brave drivers are uploading videos of their rides on YouTube.  To support these brave women and their campaign, learn more at Amnesty International.

Lest we be confused that their giant V logo stands for anything other than Veld.

Trading beef for beans is not a solution, veganism is

Please do substitute beef for beans, but also have tofu instead of turkey, carrots instead of chicken, and I think you see where I’m going.

Guys, extortion isn’t an effective form of vegan advocacy

Assuming we can extort people into respecting the lives of others makes no sense.
