Someone who cares about the suffering of sentient creatures, and therefore does not consume eggs, milk, or meat, as well as abstaining from wearing animals or using products tested on them.
Meat-eaters are harmful to the environment, not vegans. They are the main cause of world hunger by wasting land to feed overbred cows who will become tortured and killed. Meat is an inefficient resource, and also requires a lot of oil in production. Don't say veganism is bad for the environment.
God warned against animal cruelty, and preched compassion. Many references made to meat were metaphoric or not referring to flesh. Most scholars believe Jesus didn't even eat fish, so don't use the pseudo-Christian argument either.
Finally, b12 and protein can be obtained from plants. Beans, nuts, and seeds are rich in protein, and many other plant based foods contain it as well. Seaweed, yeast, and raw organic foods have b12, and it also can be grown as a bacteria.
Debeaking, beating, tail-docking, ear-clipping, confinement, etc. aren't humane. There's no excuse for not being vegan.
The arguments against veganism are very ignorant.
The word vegan means compassion.
Woah, that person cares about the world, she must be a vegan.
The practice of breeding animals for food in a supposedly natural and cruelty-free manner. Animals live comfortably outside instead of in cramped stalls; are fed healthy diets. Alternate to factory farms.
She isn't a vegetarian, but she won't eat anything but free-range meat.
|80.||animal rights activist|
(Let me start off by saying that I find the definitions that are listed here to be very offensive. I am a vegan and a supporter of animal rights. I am also very active in human rights, peace and social justice activism. It is a fundamental misinterpretation to say that people who believe in animal rights hate people. For the most part, animal rights activists are very concerned about issues related to cruelty towards humans as well as non-humans.)more...
An animal rights activist is someone who cares deeply about the fundamental rights of other living beings, believing strongly that no animal, human or non-human, deserves to suffer. A core belief of the animal rights movement is that sentient beings have the right to live a life free from cruelty and exploitation. Animal rights activists do not seek to create a world where non-human animals are treated better than humans, rather a world where no sentient being, including humans, has to suffer. Many animal rights activists are also active in other communities such as human rights activism, social justice activism, civil rights activism, peace activism, e...
This can mean any being that eats meat. Many human meat eaters are unaware of the cruelty in factory farms while others aware of the cruelty still continue to support it. Some humans and animals must eat meat, but for the majority of humans it is not necessary so they are only killing for pleasure.
Lions are meat eaters.
Chimpanzees are meat eaters.
Gorillas are not meat eaters.
Vegans are not meat eaters.
One who clings to an absurd, phoney "ethic" that is wholly unsupported.
"Vegans" are, almost without exception, juvenile, whiny, soppy, clueless urbanites. They ALWAYS start by claiming to live a "cruelty-free" lifestyle, until the horrible flaw in their own claim is pointed out to them; namely, that tens of thousands of animals are killed in producing the supermarket veggies they happily shovel into their big, fat, gaping pie-holes.
"Vegans" then ALWAYS retreat to claiming they somehow cause "less harm" than non-vegans. This is also unsupportable; someone who buys a half of a grass-fed beef (many, many meals for one death) is certainly causing "less harm" than a whiny, drippy "vegan" shoveling supermarket rice into their cake-hole (many deaths for one meal.)
"Veganism" is sanctimonious self-righteousness parading as an "ethic;" the "ethical" claims of "vegans" are recognized as false by anyone with more than three active brain cells. "Vegans" follow no moral principle; only a cheap, easy, and stupid rule: "Don't put animal parts in your mouth."
The animals killed by "vegans" matter to them not at all - NOT AT ALL - as long as they don't have to see the carcasses.
Ingrid Newkirk, famous moron and supporter of terrorists.
A very influencial and ground breaking band, formed in the 60's. Named after two bluesmen, Pink Anderson and Floyd Council, Pink Floyd's main lineup included Roger Waters, David Gilmour, Rick Wright, and Nick Mason. Though, the original lead guitar and frontman was the genious Syd Barret, who was replaced by Gilmour around 1968, due to his excessive LSD use.more...
Pink Floyd was one of the first, if not the first (to do it as much as they did), band to begin to experiment with unusual/electronic sounds. This helped to give them their otherwordly sound, and gave them the label as 'Space Rock' or 'Psychadelic' music.
In 1973, two years after the release of 'Meddle' (one of their more melodic albums), 'Dark Side of the Moon' debued (which was actually performed live once, a year before) reached #1 on the charts in the USA, and remained on the charts for an astonishing 741 weeks. 'Dark Side' has sold well over 30 million albums to date.
'Wish You Were Here', the next album, was basically a tribute to the long departed Syd Barret, followed by 'Animals'. Both albums brought the ideas of social insecurites and fears, the same seen in 'Dark Side of the Moon' to a more full frontal view.
'Another Brick in the Wall' considered to be the best concept album of all time, came next, this time the album was based on the walls people build around themselves to protect them from the cruelty of society and life. There was also a movie made to illustrate the album, with no spoken dialo...
An animal rights organization. Contrary to popular belief, PETA does not stand for "People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals," but "Poorly Educated Teen Activists," due to the fact that this organization thrives on the support of gullible preteen emo crybabies who would do anything to help a cause, even if it means ruining a couple lives.more...
Ingrid Newkirk, a tyranical, psychotic bitch, who claimed, in her will, that she would like her dead body to be barbecued and eaten, runs PETA with an iron fist and only steps out of the shadows for a quick publicity shot. Her gopher-like complexion and high-pitched chipmunk-like voice, laced with a British accent, makes her easy to spot in a crowd.
Newkirk is also known as the Furher of the new Fourth Reich, and the third anti-christ, but these are speculations at best.
Like other radical groups, PETA frowns on free will amongst its members. This is evident on the PETA2 boards, where anything that, and anyone who, does not support PETA's insane mantra is automatically squashed and deleted. This is to prevent the further contamination of PETA's brainwashed "Hitler youth."
The organization has supported many outlandish campaigns, such as the Holocaust On Your Plate campaign and the Your Mommy/Daddy Kills Animals pamphlets they hand out to 2nd graders with the intent to make the kids' parents beat the shit out of the activist who handed...
