Fuck the Vegan Haters

I posted that video about how if you eat meat you’re an asshole. In it I also explained how I used to eat meat so I used to be an asshole but am not anymore. Well I had one of my “friends” on facebook post a vegetarian quote about staying quiet to be compassionate and I had to explain how I couldn’t after all that I seen because that would be cruel to my fellow beings.

Here’s my response to him, I’m quite proud of it so I thought I would share:

First off I’m not a vegetarian, I’m a a VEGAN. Vegetarianism is still quite cruel as using milk and eggs are extremely torturous to animals. I can give you plenty of videos to watch if you don’t believe me. In fact I don’t feel like you even watched my video because in it I call myself an asshole. I’ve also posted a dozen videos about animal rights videos the past weeks and you haven’t commented on a single one except this one. I would argue that you’re trying to shame me into shutting up because I’m supposed to be compassionate and not try to upset people who enjoy eating meat. I ate meat for 30 fucking years because I didn’t realize how AWFUL it really was. I’m angry that I was lied to and tricked by advertising and the meat industry controlling everything for a profit. I saw things I cannot unsee now and I feel like if everyone who ate meat saw the movies and videos I’ve seen they wouldn’t be eating meat or dairy. It’s impossible to break through all the nonsense on facebook and the internet so this is how I have chosen to do so and guess what it’s working and when people come to me interested I talk to them kindly and explain how it will change your life. The extreme tactics are just to get through so people will start talking, they’ll start paying attention, they’ll start questioning. Why is Jera so geared up on this if she did eat meat for 30 years, maybe there is something more here. Then they can do their own research and find things or I can offer resources. If you can sit through the entirety of Earthlings, Cowspiracy, Racing Extinction, Food Inc, The Cove, Blackfish, any of Gary Yourefsky’s videos, the Vegan film on youtube plus all the videos I’m going to post below and still want to tell me I should be shutting my mouth, I dare you to do it. I bet you won’t want to nor would you want to do that kind of work. I’ve watched everything I’ve linked you to.
















I don’t think you understand the actual suffering that is going on to animals and Humans from the meat and dairy industry, if you did, you probably would have shared my video. My video adds zero suffering to this planet, it adds awareness, but then again you’d have to watch it to know or you would have to actually truly care about other beings on this planet.

And here’s a quote for you from James Aspey who was silent for a year to raise awareness for animal rights and most people never heard of because silence doesn’t win. Its a beautiful quote. “We all say we love animals, and we all are against animal cruelty, but we pay people to mutilate, torture and slaughter animals…It’s not because we need to for our health. It’s just because we like the way they taste.”

GO VEGAN! FUCK YEAH!

I’ve officially written an entire novel!

I've officially written an entire<span class= #novel! I started this a year ago thinking I could do it in a month and I did get more than halfway done that month, it seemed so easy. Then I got stuck. Then I started thinking the entire thing was stupid. Then I stopped. Then I said was gonna work on it and didn't. 10 months later I decided I had to at least finish it or else I had wasted all that time so I started to finish it. Then I forgot what I had wrote in the first part but kept writing anyway. Then I wanted to stop because thought it had gotten stupider.Then I kept going anyway. Then I got a lot closer and chased the endings I thought it needed. Then the right ending developed and wrote itself. Then I cried because the story had become an amazing one. How could I have ever thought it was stupid, there was so much of me in it. Then I realized I was simply putting pieces together now, I had to listen to what I had already created. My creation knew where to go even if I didn't. Then I wrote the last 1000 words all while wiping away tears. Then I felt something inside myself I had never felt before .Then I realized I had only written 900 and was 100 short of my goal. Then I kept going. Then, I had written an entire novel. I fuckin did it!It doesn't matter if it's good or not. I pushed myself to do something beyond what I felt capable of.I pushed myself beyond quitting. I am so fucking tired. #50000words #writer #accomplished #exhausted #drained #excited #terrified #alltheabove #process #keepgoing #positivity #progress #optimism #goals" />

Struggling with Minimalism

 

Heres a little video about how my head has been driving me nuts with trying to be more minimalist. And let me say I’m still quite far from it.  We’ve given up our tv, couch, dvd player, playstation, entire dvd collection, lots of wardrobe (I’m at about 55 pieces not including undies and socks!), plus lots more.

However I’m getting stuck at ridding myself of things but still feeling like I have way too much. I’m craving the freedom that having only the necessities brings.

What about you? Are you trying to be minimalist?
