Can we just talk about this for a second?
A restaurant chain called Hardee’s recently released a string of advertisements that sexualize chicken breasts.Let me repeat myself:They’re advertising their food by sexualizing the breasts of chickens.
This ad features a chicken with censored breasts, suggesting that this body part is somehow lewd, indecent or arousing and needs to be covered up. And in this one, countless roosters run to Hardee’s in hopes of catching a glimpse of some hot, sexy, cooked (meaning, dead) chicken breasts. It’s like sexism, bestiality and necrophilia all wrapped into one.
But before you go thinking this is an isolated incident, just check out these ads for other products that sexualize human and nonhuman bodies:




And these are only a few examples.
You know….  There are so many anti-vegan feminists who trash vegans because PETA objectifies and sexualizes women in their campaigns. They cry, “I’d never go vegan because the animal rights movement is so sexist!!!”
Oh yeah? Well why haven’t these thoroughly sexist ad campaigns made you stop eating meat? I know why. Because you only boycott sexist companies when it’s convenient for you.
So either stop pretending PETA’s sexism is the reason you still eat meat, or go vegan.

now in store: bestaility fetishization!

Vegan Tattoo Info: How to make sure your tattoo is vegan!

kady-xvx:

Tattoos are awesome, but in a world where animals are so exploited they are in almost everything, how can you make sure that your tattoos are aligned with your ethics?

Before you go to your tattoo artist, there are a few things you need to know.
never assume that everything is vegan.
Don’t be afraid to ask questions, even if you are annoying, it’s your right to be! Tattoos are personal, and as such your tattoo artist should cater to your every need.
If your artist isn’t willing to use vegan alternatives that you bring/ or supply them for you, go else where. They cannot run a business that caters to clients, without actually catering to them. Your money is best spent elsewhere, on someone who respects you and will Give you what you want.
Don’t be rude though, Always offer to buy the vegan alternatives yourself and bring them in for your Artist to use on you.

If there is a vegan tattoo studio near you (or vegan artist) GO TO THEM, support your fellow vegans!
If there isn’t, then that’s okay to, you can just find a vegan friendly artist. Asking studios if they have anyone who can do a vegan tattoo shows them that there is a demand, they will be more likely to start stocking vegan supplies and being more vegan friendly!
So, Don’t be afraid to ask, in the long run it will help others vegans!

Below are some common ingredients that can be found in tattoo inks and products used in the tattoo process, that are not vegan:

  • Glycerin: Made from animal fat, glycerin is a common ink stabilizer used to make the ink easier to work with. (but many brands do use vegetable Glycerin, just be wary)
  • Bone char: Black ink, the most popular and widely used color of all, is usually made with bone char, which is the soot from burned animal bones. Inks formulated with bone char are said to achieve the darkest, crispest shade of black. (India Ink in black inks, consists of burned animal bones.)
  • Gelatin: Made from animal hooves, gelatin is a binding agent and a frequent ink ingredient.
  • Shellac: Shellac is used as a binding agent and is made from beetles.
  • Indigotin 1: green ink often contains “Indigotin 1”, a pigment or color made from sour Indigotin - which stems from a special kind of slug, who are killed for Indigotin in particular.
    (Concerning the green color of many things: even some producers of wasabi paste add animal-based indigotin to their product.)
  • Lanolin: Made from sheep wool, lanolin is a common ingredient in lotions, ointments, Razor moisture strips, Transfer paper and salves used during the tattooing process, as well as in after care products.
  • Beeswax: Used in aftercare lotions and salves.
  • Cod Liver Oil: Used in aftercare lotions and salves.
  • Petroleum Jelly: Can be filtered through Bone Char, or owned by a company that test on animals (Vaseline is owned by Unilever)

Now of course a some of the things listed above can be vegan (Vegetable glycerin, Black ink) but it is always good to not just assume they are vegan! 
image

Many Tattoo inks ARE vegan friendly, so don’t despair, in fact some of the biggest name brand inks are vegan!
You may see other lists that say some inks are vegan, when in fact they are NOT.
so, be super careful, I have tried to link all pages below to info confirming they are vegan! Since there is some conflicting information out there about some brands (especially black inks) I will be waiting for email confirmation, then adding them if they are vegan! so this list is not final, please check back and feel free to email the companies yourselves/ ask your tattoo artist.

Listed below are vegan tattoo inks:

As I said this is not a complete list, I am still waiting on confirmation from some companies, the ones above are CONFIRMED vegan. 
If you know of any inks that are in fact vegan, send me a message and I’ll look into it.
image

Vegan Alternatives to Vaseline or A&D: 

Please always ask your tattoo artist if they are comfortable using these alternatives, and if you choose to bring one in, make sure they are okay with it! communication is key!
Petroleum is also made from oil, so when it is used to make the skin smooth, some of it is tattooed into you.. it’s like having gasoline put into your skin! 

Green soaps & Alcohol: 
Always ask your tattoo artist if the glycerin in the green soap is vegetable based! Medical grade/rubbing Alcohol is vegan. If your Tattoo Artist cannot confirm the Green soaps Glycerin origin, ask them to use or bring your own:

Razors: 
The majority of razors have moisture strips containing lanolin or glycerin derived from animal fat, They also may be from brands that test on animals, even if they don’t have moisture strips (bic).
Below I’ve listed some vegan suitable razors, You can Bring your own or shave prior to your tattoo appointment. I personally use Preserve, they are made from recycled plastic and eco friendly!

image

Vegan Transfer paper & transfer Solutions: 
At the current time, there is only ONE vegan transfer paper, that is spirit VEGAN thermal transfer paper by reprofx. All other transfer paper is not vegan.
If your tattoo artist thinks that it’s “too expensive” to buy the vegan paper.. tell them it’s about 48c a sheet, and an investment in your loyal service + all your vegan friends will be stocked someone already has all vegan supplies! The investment is WELL WORTH the return. If they still refuse, buy yourself some transfer paper from the link below :)

Anesthetic and pain relief during tattoos: 
If you are having a rather long tattoo session, a little pain relief can help a lot! I have had 8+ hour sits, and without the anesthetic spray I would have tapped out at around 5 hours. Below are some vegan anesthetic sprays/ creams. Some only a professional can buy, so make sure to speak to your tattoo artist.

Vegan After Care:

This will be an ever updated list of vegan products, so please check back regularly! And if anything on the list doesn’t belong there, or any thing needs to be added, message me and let me know.

Please be advised I am not a tattoo artist, I researched all this information myself, I may have left things out purposely, until i know for sure they are vegan. I do not want to spread misinformation.

trans-vegan:

Another thing that pisses me off— vegans on and off the internet are expected to always be calm, cool, collected individuals with hard facts, sources and good arguments.

Then the carnists can just say “hurr durr bacon” and everyone will cheer, pop confetti everywhere and say the vegan was “completely” owned.

There is no valid argument against veganism. 

Aside from that being a strawman argument:

So yes, there IS an argument against being purely vegan. If someone wants to do it though, so be it. A well-planned (read again: WELL PLANNED) vegetarian diet has the potential to be superior to the typical diet which includes meat, but a well-planned diet that includes meat will be equal to the vegetarian diet. You can be healthy and not eat meat. You can be healthy and eat meat.

What I personally dislike is how vegans are often so pretentious about their eating habits, like “well unlike SOME people I DON’T eat MEAT and that makes me better than you.” Some people are going to eat meat, and some people aren’t going to meat. If you disagree with the kind of food a person ingests, too bad. It’s their body and their choice. No one choice is generally “better” than another when it comes to food.

P.S. An honest question for vegans/freegans: do you not drive? Gas for your car is partially derived from animal products.

Look at this. Non-vegans thinking they still have arguments we haven’t heard and refuted a thousand times before. It would be adorable if people weren’t trying to defend absolutely deplorable behavior.

(Let me apologize for how long it took me to finally get around to this post. Digging up links and putting them together takes a bit of time. Thanks for your patience.)

Health:

Plant based diets are superior to animal product inclusive diets and can prevent, treat, and reverse nearly all of the top 15 causes of death in the US. x x x x x x x x x  (Also, vegan kids are smarter than non-vegan kids.)

All the nutrients you need can not only be found in plant based diets, but most are superior forms when compared to animal sourced nutrients. Plant based dieting is not the cause of nutrient deficiencies - poor eating habits in general and/or underlying health issues are the cause of nutrient deficiencies.

Authority versus Evidence:

Corporate sponsorships from food companies are given directly to organizations and groups that are supposed to be trusted to give us reliable nutrition information. That makes many of these authorities unreliable, at best. There is a difference between authority and evidence; learning where the information you get comes from and how it was obtained is an important step in learning what information you can and cannot trust.

Environment:

The jury is in on the harm that animal agriculture, even misnamedsustainable" animal agriculture, causes to the environment. There is no debate anymore.

Ethics:

More animals are not killed via crop harvesting than via animal agriculture. This assertion proves a distinct lack of knowledge about how animal agriculture works. (This is a somewhat polite way of saying you don’t know what the fuck you’re talking about, but it’s okay, vegans are used to these arguments. Most of us have a plethora of posts just like this one, ripe to bursting with resources that refute every single one of these “original” arguments that hundreds of other non-vegans just like you have tried before.)

Non-veganism is harming the entire planet, especially underdeveloped countries and those living in poverty, but you’ll be happy to know that vegans are not killing Bolivians. More non-vegans eat quinoa than vegans.1-3% of the first world population (vegans) are not going to be eating anything enough to cause poverty. This shouldn’t even need to be explained.

Animal agriculture and the slaughter industry cause more human rights violations than almost any other industry.

This is such a difficult concept for you non-vegans, but it is worth being repeated: As noted above re: causing less harm all around, decreasing the amount of harm you cause to the entire world around you - people, animals, and the environment - does in fact make a difference and will make your impact more positive than someone who does not avoid unnecessary harm. This is not a difficult equation, no amount of “it doesn’t make you better than me!” whining is going to change it, either.

Contributing to one of the most horrendous industries, morally and environmentally speaking, is not a personal choice. This affects more than just you. Harming animals means you are affecting them. Participating in animal agriculture means you are harming people. Participating in animal agriculture means you are harming the planet. This is all avoidable. Therefore, it should be avoided.

Evolution:

The “evolutionary need” for animal products is irrelevant, no matter what you think animal products helped our ancestors to do. Unless you feel like eating babies, anyway.

P.S. The Tu Quoque Fallacy:

This one is used by every non-vegan. You are wrong. Deal with it like an adult: accept that changes need to be made and make them. Stop throwing a fit. You are not a toddler.

necessaryveganism:
Since female mammals can only produce milk during and after pregnancy, we shove long steel devides into their vaginas with our bare hands once a year to inject them with bull semen.
The calves are taken away after birth to prevent them from drinking the milk that will be sold to the public.
The male calves are sent to the veal industry where they are kept in small stalls or tiny crates. Minimal to no movement is allowed; this prevents muscle development, which keeps their flesh extra tender for your enjoyment.
The machines suck the cows dry several times a day - most of these cows have severe infections, and the pus gets sucked out along with the milk.
A single cow emits more environmentally harmful gases than a car. 
Some cows spend their entire lives standing on concrete floors; others are crammed into massive mud lots.
Cows have a natural lifespan of about 25 years, but the conditions they now live in lead to disease, lameness, and reproductive problems that render cows worthless to the dairy industry by the time they are four or five years old, at which time they are sent to the slaughterhouse.
We are the only species to drink milk after infancy.
Cow’s milk is the number one cause of food allergies among infants and children. 
Milk and other animal products may lower your lifespan more than smoking.

srsly people pull out the OMG STOP THE VEGAN PREACHING if you literally just state a fact.

A 15 minute meal you’ll forget in a week isn’t worth this. Educate yourself. 
Slaughterhouse: The Shocking Story of Greed, Neglect, and Inhumane Treatment Inside the U.S. Meat Industry



Earthlings


This. This is why I have given up meat again. Finally. No amount of iron deficiency is going to best me this time. Educate yourself. If you choose to eat meat after then that’s entirely up to you but at least know WHAT happens to your food when it’s alive and feeling, before it gets to you.

BULLSHIT!! I’ve worked in one of these places. They are given a lethal injection and they just lay down and die painlessly. Ok, some places will be cruel and break laws like all businesses do but most follow strict guidelines laid down by animal welfare.And we’re meant to eat meat, that’s what our pointy teeth are for! To tear meat from bones!

A lethal injection? You do realize that no place anywhere in the world does that because if you gave them a lethal injection, those toxic and LETHAL chemicals would be in that animal’s system and their flesh would absorb all of that and it would end up poisoning whoever ate it? Where the fuck did you get that ridiculous bullshit?
Slaughterhouses give them bullets into their brains (which more often than not hits the wrong part of the brain so they die very slowly and very painfully) or slit their throats while they are still alive, because injecting chemicals isn’t possible if you plan on eating their dead body. The only way to slaughter animals so people can eat them is to… well, slaughter them. So no, animals are not killed painlessly or instantly. And they sure as hell don’t get the luxury of comfort or lying down before death. Get the fuck out of here with your blatant fucking lies. You’re just trying to spread misinformation so that people will feel better about needlessly killing animals, yourself included.
But really, who even fucking cares? We would never say it’s okay to kill dogs all sweet and cozily while they’re laying down in a nice warm bed just so we can later chop them up and eat their body parts. That would still be animal cruelty because you are unnecessarily taking that animal’s life. Why the fuck should you think it’s okay to do that to other animals?
