My milkshake brings all the boys to the yard

And they’re like, “I thought you were vegan?”

“Whales are perfect beings, and I cry just thinking about them. This is why I don’t think human issues are any more important than nonhuman issues.

For those who didn’t get a chance to attend the 2013 Animal Rights Conference, the welfare vs abolition debate between Bruce Friedrich and Gary Francione was clearly the most anticipated session so much so that they had to expand the room and bring in more chairs to accommodate all of those that wished to attend. FARM told me it was easily the most well attended session in the history of the conference. Check it out here and decide for yourself.
