  • I am dropping my nickname upon receiving some pretty sound advice. So I will be using my regular name from now on, not my nickname.
    Just want to say I was never trying to hide my identity! I am proud of who I am. I just thought my nickname was unusual and unique and would draw attention, and there are so many Elizabeth Collins out there. I am NOT the Elizabeth Collins that writes/wrote articles for PETA!!!Anyway, my friends from New York have been calling me Knuckles for as long (... More)

  • NZ Vegan Podcast Episode 18 - Work in a non-vegan world; my first vegan speech; and further proof of the effectiveness of peaceful vegan activism
    This week I talk about my personal experiences trying to work and earn a living as a vegan in a non-vegan world. I also talk about an interesting reaction I had (the way I reacted not the other people) upon being given my very first opportunity ever to address a group of relative strangers about veganism. I also talk about Colleen Patrick-Goudreau (... More)

  • NZ Vegan Podcast Episode 17 - Talking about my thoughts on some dreams of the future that I have, but also how important it is to live in reality.
    This Episode I mention how important it is to be in touch with reality no matter how painful it is. I think it is the best way to live, and it also allows us to embrace life, and only by being in touch with the reality of the world we are living in can we be effective in helping to better that world. I talk about the dreams I have which are not fantasies, (... More)

  • NZ Vegan Podcast Episode 16- I think we are at the beginning of something big, we just have to BE that beginning and keep it going
    This week I try to articulate my thoughts about abolition veganism as a movement, as a cause that is becoming reality, because I am starting to think that we are at the beginning of something that may one day, albeit perhaps long after we are gone, be called a movement. The more people I am finding out about who are promoting abolitionist veganism, (... More)

  • NZ Vegan Podcast Episode 12 - Elaborating on what I mean about patience and tolerance while engaging in activism.
    This week I want to clarify what I mean when I talk about being patient and tolerant. Unfortunately, at this point in time, we are fighting against something that is actually publicly defended as morally justified, unlike other causes such as fighting against racism or child abuse, and unlike those other causes we do not have the majority opinion, (...

It is my first negative reaction and it is very enlightening! I updated the blog description of Episode 6 also, to address the same. Thanks to everyone who has (... More)

I dispute that entirely. Being able to do something is not a moral justification for doing it when there exists a valid alternative (i.e., Veganism). (... More)

This is a good example (... More)
