  • If You Care About Animals, In Vitro Meat is Not the Answer
    In vitro replications of Nonhuman Animal bodies ignore the problem of speciesism, exclude millions of species, and perpetuate prejudicial and violent attitudes. On July 15, 2012 the Humane Research Council (now Faunalytics) posted the following on their Facebook promotional page: If you care about animals and the environment, you should support (...more)

  • Pro-Intersectionality Veganism is EASY!
    Consider the following meme which displays the popular "veganism is easy," "no excuses" theme: In considering the image, keep in mind that the quote is attributed to someone who appears to be a white able-bodied man living in a food secure nation. Look, there is nothing wrong in trying to present veganism as accessible, but (...more)

  • Students Think Vegan Food Tastes Better, Research Finds
    Researchers suspect familiarity with veganism is increasing fondness for plant-based fare A 2015 publication in Food Quality and Preference finds that college students are more receptive to veganism than non-profits and policy makers may be willing to admit.'

  • What is Post-Speciesism?
    Photo from Atlantic Hogs, a "free range" institution in Ireland Speciesism  is institutional discrimination and, to a lesser extent, individual prejudice against Nonhuman Animals based on their species.

  • What the Confederate Flag Controversy Can Offer Abolitionist Vegans
    Trigger Warning: Post discusses racism, sexism, and a number of other discriminations as well as the movement's defense over attitudes and tactics that engage them. I grew up in a small town in rural Virginia. The Confederate flag was constantly present in my life. Some people hang the flag on their porch. Lots of "good ol' boys" (...more)

  • Clarification on Evolve Campaigns Misquote
    Just a quick note of clarification: Evolve Campaigns has created and shared the following internet meme without my permission. In doing so, it has unfortunately misquoted me. The quote it has attributed to me actually derives from a 2013 guest contribution by Colin Donoghue. I have recently moved away from using "enslavement" language and I also (...more)

  • Art Therapy and Temple Grandin: At the Crossroads
    By Lee Ann When I first read the announcement that the American Art Therapy Association had invited Temple Grandin to be this year's keynote speaker at our annual conference, I was shocked. After about a week of trying to process this information, my bubbling rage drove me to social media, calling AATA out for inviting a woman who has (...more)

  • Colonizing England and the Naming of Animals
    While many non-British probably recognize Great Britain today as a great colonial power responsible for untold suffering through Western imperialism over the centuries, some might be surprised to know that the island itself was the site of extensive colonization prior to medieval times. Historians have described it as a sort of "back water" with (...more)

  • Corey Wrenn featured on Under the Toadstool
    I joined Sonia Chauhan and Sarah K. Woodcock on their Under the Toadstool podcast for a serious discussion about the state of sexism in the Nonhuman Animal rights movement. In this episode, we talk about the history of sexism in the movement, current events in sexism, and concrete steps we can take to disrupt it. I highly recommend this episode (...more)

  • The Problem with Badge-Allies
    The abolitionist faction of the Nonhuman Animal rights movement is somewhat unique in the movement because it specifically values intersectionality. That is, abolitionist activists recognize that sexism, racism, heterosexism, etc. is as morally problematic as speciesism. Indeed, many abolitionists recognize that these systemic discriminations (...more)

  • Should We Troll Tom Regan?
    For women like myself with an active and public presence on the internet, we are fully aware that we "set ourselves up" for abuse by simply being present and by having an educated opinion.  Women are expected to be silent and invisible. For those who dare to disobey these gender norms, retribution is swift. Women on the internet (...more)

  • Donations & The Small Print in Animal Advocacy
    How often do you check the 990 IRS form for your favorite non-profit before you donate? I think many readers would be shocked to learn how often non-profit claimsmaking seriously mismatches its actual financial situation. Free From Harm claims it reached 6 million web users in 2014 with a budget of only $45,000. This information (...more)

  • Irish Car Bombs Aren't Vegan . . . For Reasons Other Than You Think
    Trigger Warning: Discussions of ethnic violence in Ireland Do we really want to veganize an ethnic slur?

  • Reining in the Elephants: Thinking Critically about Single-Issue Campaigns
    Before I begin this article, I want to start out by saying that I am happy for the handful of elephants who will never again step foot in a Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus. But for the remaining elephants who will continue to be exploited in the circus's "conservation" facility, the camels that are being added to the show to take (...more)

  • Defending Non-Abolitionism Bingo Card
    From my good friends at The Abolitionist Vegan Society . . . There is a social psychological tendency for us to assume that because something exists or predominates, it must be good and most appropriate. Challenge yourselves and others to think critically and to value evidence before supporting a position. Remember, ad-hominems (...more)

    Trigger Warning: Post contains discussions of racism against Muslims and the Nonhuman Animal rights movement's role in promoting it.

  • On Vegan Arguments from the White Mindset
    I just received an interesting email in response to one of my more widely read posts that addresses getting "called out" on an admittedly insensitive piece I wrote back in 2013. In short, I had complained about how, after explaining that I was vegan, many people would respond by claiming they are lactose intolerant, and therefore, we were on the (...more)

  • Is DXE a Vegan Abolitionist Group?
    The short answer is no. The following meme is being shared on social media networks by a DXE leader: In my opinion, DXE is not a vegan abolitionist group because they utilize welfarist tactics (open rescues, single-issue campaigning, branded campaigning, and a general mirroring of large non-profits like Mercy for Animals, (...more)

  • Join the Vegan Club for the Low, Low Price
    Vegan Outreach has repeatedly explained in a number of essays, position statements, and interviews that they do not want a "vegan club."  A consistent vegan position, they explain, is sanctimonious and off-putting. Vegans are angry, loud, and too concerned with morality. "Meeting people where they are," they insist, is a more "practical" approach. (...more)

  • Abolitionism and Incremental Reforms
    By John Tallent Image courtesy of The Abolitionist Vegan Society Abolitionists are not opposed to incremental reforms; we are of the belief that they will automatically happen as a result of vegan education's effect on the demand for animal products.The difference between abolitionists and nonabolitionists, in terms of these (...more)

  • On the Problems with Open Rescues: A Response to the DXE Position
    Yes, images can elicit emotions which can, in turn, inspire action. No, they need not be graphic, and graphic images can backfire within a political environment that normalizes welfare reform as the appropriate response to animal exploitation.

  • An Update on Non-Profit Bias and the "Downright Stupid" Vegan Position
    Last week I published a brief critique of the Humane Research Council's new study on vegan recidivism, which I suggested was conducted to legitimate compromised welfarist tactics. I argued this because 1. there is considerable preexisting research on this very topic that comes to much different conclusions and is conducted by academics who are (...more)

  • Intersectionality is a Foundational Principle in Abolitionism
    I have written many times on the importance of intersectionality in abolitionist advocacy as both a matter of ethics and efficacy.

As racial violence and discrimination against people of color continues (...more)

  • The Non-Profit Bias: Studies by Non-Profits, for Non-profits
    Networks, community support, and Nonhuman Animal rights turn people vegan and keep them vegan. Last week the Humane Research Council published a study on vegan and vegetarian numbers and recidivism, which was widely shared in the Nonhuman Animal rights community. The report was created with the assistance of Vegan Outreach's Matt Ball and Farm (...more)

  • Post-Speciesism and the Commodification of Animal Rights: Aldi's "Love Ireland" Campaign
    I'm living in Cork, Ireland for the semester and have been exploring new stores, new vegan food, and new ways of advertising food products. Something I quickly noticed was the "Produced in Ireland" labeling scheme.
