Carnists who “feel bad” about eating animals are like vampires who “feel bad” about killing people.
No. Being vegan in and of itself does not make you a good person.
Being vegan makes you a more ethical person, but we can all agree that there is more that goes into being a ~good person~ than your ethics. How do you treat the people you love? Are you kind to those who need your help? Are you a good friend without being an enabler? Are you trustworthy? Do you try your best to avoid close-minded ignorance?
And tbh if you need to go vegan to reassure yourself that you’re a “good person,” you got problems that veganism ain’t going to solve.
People in Korea have undergone a change in eating culture so that more meat and dairy is incorporated into their diets to be stronger “like Americans.”
However, Americans also tend to die a lot younger than Koreans. Talk all you want about meat/dairy leading to strength, but I don’t see anyone talking about the relationship between meat/dairy and an early death.
That’s what I meant, but thanks for clarifying!
Don’t do anything drunk that you wouldn’t do sober.
For example: today I was drinking with friends and wondering if I could have sex with my ex while I was drunk. Then I realized what an absolutely shitty thing that is to do/think.
Relying on alcohol to give you that little spurt of courage to do stuff is what leads to alcoholism. First you want a bit of booze to help you ask out the girl you like, then you need it to talk to people, then you need it to cope with everyday life.
Drink when you feel good, not bad.
Do not drink to excess. There is absolutely no need, plus liver cells don’t regenerate.
Drink with friends.
Don’t drink alone.
Drink the good stuff. German and japanese draft beers are good.
If you need alcohol to do it, it’s probably not a good idea.
I mean, we saw her first in Suyin’s dance troupe
then in the newspaper
then as what it seemed to be Suyin’s trust police officer
then in the mission to save the airbenders,
then saying her name out loud…
Nobody is going to say otherwise: Bryan and Mike are planning something for her.
Maybe Team Avatar’s next member?
“Veganism is not about vegans. Vegans are people with all sorts of good and bad points. But that says nothing about veganism. Vegans are often the messengers of veganism, but don’t confuse the two. Veganism is the understanding that animals value their own lives and bodies, that animals have an interest in continuing their existence and avoiding suffering and that animals have the right to be treated with respect and justice and not to be treated as property. The logic of veganism stands independent of any individual vegan person.”
My aunt is a professional dancer and she’s been on a diet since she started dancing. She has to pay thousands of dollars every month for medicine that keeps her body together. She has to quit dancing and look to choreography instead because it’s too hard on her physically.
She also has problems with hair loss, so much that the person who cleans our house commented on her hairs clogging up the drain.
Hair loss is really common amongst new vegans and vegetarians who don’t want to kill animals, but who still want to eat low-nutrition junk foods. It is nutritional deficiency, plain and simple.
When my aunt does eat, she eats foods like ramen and cookies and white rice. Hence, hair loss and other health issues. My grandmother told her to eat more like me, a vegan, to solve those health issues.
Also, when my grandfather was sick, his German doctor who was an expert in cancer therapy advised him to go on a mostly vegetarian diet and cut out starch (white bread, potatoes, white rice).
All you carnists talking about how great meat is for you. When you got health problems, nobody tells you to eat more meat, they tell you to eat more veggies and fruits.
Now go eat some broccoli and think about your actions.
