Laura. 21. England. Ethical Vegan. Queer. Atheist. Virgo. I like dogs, shoes, cups of tea and pretty accents. I write stories and I'm usually drunk.

I work at a cinema and we have to have our favourite film on our name badges. I had ‘Moonrise Kingdom’ on it for a while and I was surprised how many customers asked me about it and told me they’d go and watch it.

Anyway, my name badge broke so I get a new one and my new favourite film is going to be ‘Earthlings’. Let’s see how many people I can make vegan. c:

Also, update on my life: My job is the best. I don’t even care that I don’t get paid much. I get to see loads of films and the people who work there are the coolest.

At a restaurant
  • me: I'm allergic to dairy
  • me: and eggs
  • me: also meat. Super allergic.
  • me: and honey


Why are Chanel makeup products so on-trend right now? In the last few days I’ve witnessed so many girls excited whip out their Chanel lipsticks and brag about them. I love nothing more than whispering “they test on animals…” and see their faces fall.

Nah, I’m not that cruel. I really despise people who claim to love animals and still support these companies though.

because i know it must get annoying ↘

when a non-vegan asks a vegan a million questions on how to be vegan, what’s the best thing to cook with, SO ON AND SO FORTH.

i’d rather not do that, and not even consider veganism. at least a sense of what you all are like… christ, for what i said, i didn’t mean it to be SO offensive. beside…

I don’t know about other vegans, but I LOVE helping people out. I like making people food and giving people ideas. So not annoying at all. c:

So I recently saw a lot of short youtube clips from undercover films and documentaries such as Blackfish and Earthlings. Whenever I learn something new that fascinates or interests me I love to share it I mean what human being doesn’t. I have had conversations about many things with my parents…

It’s horrible when people don’t listen to you. Especially when they start saying it’s ‘propaganda’. How can it be? We’re not lying to make money like some other industries I know *cough* dairy/egg/meat industries *cough*. It’s incredibly frustrating.

But to cheer you up a bit think about all the amazing work you’re already doing. You might think it’s little but you’re saving roughly 7,000 animals by being vegan. Probably way more as that’s only counting animals used for meat. AND by spreading simple messages, you’re making a big difference, even if it doesn’t feel like it. People might not listen to you today. It’s harsh truths and it’s way simpler and easier to ignore them, but people won’t be able to ignore the truths about the meat and dairy industry forever. c: I spent a good year trying to tell my mum about ‘Earthlings’ and even though she has never gone vegan or vegetarian, she’s cut her meat intake way down and she’s way happier than she’s ever been. She even went vegan for christmas just for me. c:

Thank you this has cheered me up especially that bit at the end aww bless her :3 small victories I guess. I am on my way to being vegan after being vegetarian for 2 or so years. I can’t wait to go back to being vegan again. The only reason I stopped is because I jumped into it to quick the first time and for health reasons have done a lot more research over summer so I’ll be prepared to be healthy and vegan when I return to uni. I have seen some people say if youre only vegan  in diet that doesnt make you vegan it makes you on a plant based diet but my ultimate end goal is to use no animal by products and since in my understand veganism is reducing the animal cruelty you cause by as much as you can at the time I dont see how it is wrong of me to say I am vegan? I dont know if this is a thing actual vegans get annoyed about in real life or is this just a tumblr thing because people love to hate on this site. It is sad even my vegetarian friends don’t see how eating eggs is bad sometimes it is like arguing with a brick wall at least my dad has tried quorn and tofu for me before and admitted he likes it! Although tbh with his diabetes a veggie diet would probably be worse for him than better as he;d go straight for the quorn much higher in carbs than the meat he eats :/ My mum was veggie for yrs because of my grandma so now she is so adverse to trying anything veggie or vegan and it sucks because food today for vegetarians or vegans is so much more advanced and tastier and even she admitted that it probably is down to her mind more than the soy tasting bad I mean they have had well over 30yrs since she last tried it to improve upon product quality. Least she eats barely any meat and only some fish thats something I guess! 

tbh, about that tumblr-vegans thing. I reckon I’m one of the nastiest vegans there are and I’m usually the kind of person who is very aggressive about my opinions, but the thing is, it’s not important that you’re not 100% vegan at the moment, it’s that you’re trying. I doubt anyone went completely vegan straight away. I’ve been vegan for almost two years and I only just switched my makeup. :s I was vegetarian for 14 years before going vegan so if you ever think you’re slow at transitioning, you can always look at me. 

It definitely is something! Even if you don’t feel like you’re trying hard enough, you’re always setting an example so you should feel proud. c:

Vegans are like the most vile hypocrites ↘

If you truly want to avoid all things derived from animals, then fucking don’t take any prescription medication. Just taking them supports the FDA and their rules requiring animal testing for all pharmaceuticals and the pharmaceutical companies that use animal to develop and derive new and current…

I don’t know who told you the definition of vegan, but let me just spell something out for you right now. VEGAN means trying your very hardest to eliminate cruelty to animals. It is not being perfect. It is just doing something.

This is how your argument sounds to me: ‘I think it’s totally acceptable to slaughter cows, goats, pigs, sheep, chickens, etc to eat them even though it isn’t necessary. AND I stepped on a bug today. But if you don’t eat meat or dairy and you stepped on a bug today then you’re a total hypocrite.” You see what I mean?

It’s logically fallacy called Tu Quoque. It means to discredit another person’s argument by asserting the opponent’s failure to act consistently with that position. Of course not all vegans are perfect! You got it right, it’s impossible to be completely perfect! But guess what? We’re fucking trying and WE ARE making a hell of a difference more than you are.

LOL, I like how your argument against mine (which is that ranting vegans are disgusting hypocrites) is to point towards a fallacy that says, just because a person is a hypocrite, doesn’t mean they’re wrong about what they’re being hypocritical about.

It’s like, the child molester who said child molesting is wrong. Just because he molests children, doesn’t mean he’s wrong when he says it’s wrong. LOL. Oh man, Tu Quoque, only idiots bring up that fallacy.

Now, don’t get all huffy because I used child molesters to describe a point, I’m not saying vegan assholes are vile like child molesters… I’m saying vegans assholes, like you, are vile like the Westboro Baptist Church.

Hmm, I like how you totally just jumped over the fact that you misunderstood the concept of ‘vegan’ entirely.

But go on, I’ll humour you for my own amusement. Say I accidentally kill one animal during a period of time. Say you kill 100 per every one that I kill. Does that make me just as bad as you are? And yeah, you could use your child molester analogy here but it fails a little bit when you consider intent.

Your perspective is super black and white when you’re looking at things as right or wrong. Yeah, nobody is perfect when it comes to saving animals, but some people ARE better at it than others. Okay, I may step on a bug tomorrow and you might too. But at least I’m not giving my money to companies that test on animals or use animal products like you will.

Nice one bringing up the westboro baptist church, I’ve never heard that one before. But please, if you are going to make that comparison, please back up your claims. I’m imagining you used it because vegans are pushy with their beliefs? Well, unlike religions, our beliefs have definite proofs to back them up. And we’re pushy, not to try and get into an imaginary heaven, but because by being so, we’re saving lives. But yeah, I’m an asshole.

What some people need to realize is that being vegan is a personal choice. It’s not your job to tell people that they are sick, deserve to die, etc. Because they don’t live the same life style as you.

You know who says shit like that?

Communist.

It’s just the same as Christian extremists…

Gotta disagree with you there.

I don’t think being vegan is a personal choice as simple as ordering tea over coffee. It’s a moral choice that effects the lives of others. If you’re going to kill someone else, torture someone else or exploit someone else for no good reason, I’m going to judge you and see you as immoral. And yes, when I say someone else I mean animals.

I know it’s not possible for everyone to be vegan and I’m not going to victimise people who can’t. But most people can go vegan and choose not to for whatever arbitrary reason that isn’t fucking good enough!

I can forgive ignorance, but I can’t forgive people who know about the cruelty and suffering who choose to do nothing.
