Dear Flexitarianism, “Humane”itarianism, Pescatarianism, Veg, Vegetarianism, Veggie, and Veg’n:
You are all diets. You are all violent. You are all meaningless for the animals. You are all meaningless for my morality. You are not steps in the right direction.
~ Sarah K. Woodcock (February 9, 2013)
Alert: I am going to speak the truth. Please separate the message from the messenger. I don’t say this to make you feel judged; I say this because I wish someone said this to me before I was vegan.
***You are personally responsible for harming animals for unnecessary reasons unless you are vegan.***
Humans do *not* need to eat, wear, be entertained by, or otherwise use animals. Opt out of the horrific violence today by going vegan today. (The hard part isn’t going vegan; the hard part is declaring who you are in a world that values conformity.)

Veganism, whereby we stand up for the rights of others not to be exploited, extends beyond non-human animals. That is, veganism means standing up against the exploitation of ALL animals including humans. And thus, as a vegan, I stand up against the Israeli occupying forces of Palestine and look forward to the day when the rest of the world does the same.
Go Vegan. Go Peace!
Dear non-vegans, one day you just might wakeup to the fact that exploiting others is wrong. And, on that day I promise your only regret will be you didn’t wakeup sooner.
Think, then Go Vegan!
To religious people, I’d say treat nonhuman animals the way you would like to be treated by your god or supernatural power, which, for virtually everyone if they’re honest, entails veganism.
To nonbelievers who aren’t vegans, I’d say give your claims to secular morality more thought and importance in your life, because unless you’re vegan, your claim to scientifically-informed, rational, secular morality has a blatant and indefensible absurdity to contend with. The only reason you get away with non-veganism culturally is because you live in a very prejudiced (read: irrational) society when it comes to the moral status of nonhuman animals.
