Go Vegan. Thank you!

I'm Erin, but everyone calls me Red and that's just fine with me.

I'm a certified VLCE and Vegan Nutrition Specialist, public speaker, writer, consultant, kitchen wrangler, problem solver, rabble-rouser, jet-setter, and host of the popular vegan podcast Red Radio. I also co-founded The Seed in 2012, and continue to organize events across North America.

By night I'm a muay Thai practitioner, runner, Bikram Yogini, and tattoo enthusiast. Brooklyn is home, but I hail from Toronto, Canada, and I'm currently on the road.

Try to keep up.

adviceforvegans:

Arturo lives in the blistering sun of Argentina. A naturally Arctic animal spends his days living in 140 degrees Fahrenheit (60 degrees Celsius) of nothing but heat. 

If this upsets you as much as it upsets me, please consider signing the following petitions:

Please allow Arturo to have a better life in the Assiniboine Park Zoo in Canada

Quickly issue a special import permit to Canada for Arturo the Polar bear.

Free Arturo, Argentina’s only polar bear, from living hell!!!

FREE ARTURO: The Polar Bear In Despair

If you know of any more petitions I can add, please let me know and I’ll add them right away. 

Let’s rescue this poor little guy together!

An Interlude.

Meat eater: what about the people who pick YOUR vegetables?
Vegan: Wait, what do you mean MY vegetables? don't you eat vegetables as well? What are you doing for these peoples rights other than using their struggles as a convenient "gotcha card" in attempts to silence vegans from talking about non human oppression? anything? And I'm guessing since you care so much about migrant workers in poor conditions, you are doing everything in your power to fight for those working in slaughterhouses and meat packing facilities since they are known to be one of the most dangerous and unsafe work places in the entire world, yes?
Meat eater: Well...
Vegan: Don't you think you should spend a little less time trying to belittle the efforts of people who are genuinely trying to cause the least amount of damage to animals, the environment and humans, and spend more time trying to make an effort of your own?
Meat eater: um, I mean...
Meat eater: bacon lol

This. #stop

veganshithead:

Stop acting like white, rich kids came up with veganism.

Stop erasing the history of PoC cultures that had—and still have—major animal rights movements, even if they didn’t use those terms to describe it.

Stop magically forgetting about Buddhism, Sikhism, Jainism, etc. in order to invalidate modern vegans because you’re mad that they pointed out the harm inherent in killing unnecessarily.

Stop it right now.

7 Things I Wish Parents Would Stop Teaching Their Children:

goddess-river:

  1. That nudity is inherently sexual
  2. That people should be judged for their personal decisions
  3. That yelling solves problems
  4. That they are too young to be talking about the things they’re already starting to ask questions about
  5. That age correlates to importance
  6. That interacting with someone of the opposite sex is inherently romantic
  7. That the default for someone is straight and cisgender

Procreating or not, THIS. #this
