Wasn’t Hitler a Vegan? 



Vegans are a little extreme!  



Isn’t vegan food just bland and gross?



If we didn’t breed them, they would have never been killed!  Bonus points for following that up and saying “it’s actually a good thing to breed and kill animals, much better to live then never lived at all”.

Lions kill other animals! It’s the circle of life. 



Cow’s milk is essential for a healthy life and growing bones.  Bonus points for adding “cows need to be milked” and even more bonus points for adding “how does a cow suffer when you take it’s milk”.

Month one of “the year of the vegan”

News outlets are abuzz with the promise of new vegan products, celebs, and services and how that is somehow a fresh affirmation that our world is one turn closer to being fully free from animal use.

What About: “No-Kill” Eggs?

The reason for these advancements is not a sense of justice – because that can only mean going vegan – but is primarily driven by economics.

Vegandale Brewery offers the ultimate vegan night out

This brewpub helps veganism shed its stay-home-and-eat-tofu stereotype.

Don’t blame vegans for the shame you feel about using animals

The shame Carly Lewis claims veganism casts over her is more likely the ghosts of moral uncertainty, spectres that are more likely fish than cows, wondering how morality can possibly be used as ammunition in favour of murder.
