No they aren’t. Quorn does have a vegan burger though now however. Danielle needs to read labels better :P
Him: You push your veganism down everybody’s throat by stomping out of the room right now.
Me: And everybody eating their pork chops and cheesy potatoes and talking about how they hate the food channel because the bbq ribs they were showing looked so good, isn’t pushing meat down my throat?
Him: No, that’s just what everybody else does as being normal.
Me (in my head): FUCK OFF
Anonymous said: Is it okay to eat things that say "May contain dairy/eggs" on the package if you're vegan? What does that even mean? Are they slipping it in secretly, or does it just mean the product was produced in a factory that also produces non-vegan products?
In my short experience and research that I’ve done, this can mean a lot of things. They could possibly be slipping it in the form of casein or whey, or such things. It could also mean that it was made in a factory that also used dairy/egg products, and it may have come in contact with said products at any time during production.
If It’s not listed in the ingredients, it is usually not in the product, though if your not sure, google or bing are always great resources. Just search and see what others thing about it.
Hope that helped a little bit :)
seriously, who could kill a chinchilla to make a coat out of it?

Newsflash: I don’t need to see animals being tortured to realize that torturing animals is wrong. I do not need to see mutilated animal bodies to be vegan or care about animals. I am the kind of person who pulls over and has to cry or vomit when I see animals hit by cars. I…
Freedom of Information Act Request Reveals FBI Classification of Factory Farm Activists As ‘Terrorists’
If the National Defense Authorization Act of 2012, a bill which allows for the indefinite detention of any person suspected of aiding or taking part in terrorism, didn’t already scare you, new information on the FBI’s classification of factory farm watchdogs should do the trick. Do you believe that factory farms are morally wrong? Have you ever spoken out, attempted to expose the injustices of, or protested against those farms?
Congratulations! According to the FBI, you just might be a terrorist.
from Green Is The New Red:
This new information comes as the Center for Constitutional Rights has filed a lawsuit challenging the Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act (AETA) as unconstitutional because its vague wording has had a chilling effect on political activism. This document adds to the evidence demonstrating that the AETA goes far beyond property destruction, as its supporters claim.
The 2003 FBI file details the work of several animal rights activists who used undercover investigation to document repeated animal welfare violations. The FBI special agent who authored the report said they “illegally entered buildings owned by [redacted] Farm… and videotaped conditions of animals.”
The animal activists caused “economic loss” to businesses, the FBI says. And they also openly rescued several animals from the abusive conditions. This was not done covertly in the style of underground groups like the Animal Liberation Front — it was an act of non-violent civil disobedience and, as the FBI agent notes, the activists distributed press releases and conducted media interviews taking responsibility for their actions.
Based on these acts — trespassing in order to photograph and videotape abuses on factory farms — the agent concludes there “is a reasonable indication” that the activists “have violated the Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act, 18 USC Section 43 (a).”
