did i molest my cats?
Sat, 25 Oct 2014 08:20:50 +0000
submitted by purbl
i recently remembered for the first time in a long while that, when i was a child and continuing into early teenhood, i used to touch my (neutered) male cats' genetalia in a way emulating human sexual stimulation. it started when i as probably 8 or 9 and i think i did it for the last time around the ages of 13 or 14, when i realized it was wrong in a different way than i had before (although i always knew it was something i shouldn't be doing) and decided never to do it again. the cats seemed annoyed, but not more than if i were batting their whiskers or something like that. i don't think i ever got any sexual pleasure out of it, but i can't be certain. i don't think so, though.
did i molest my cats? should i avoid owning them in the future? i see a therapist but i'm hesitant to ask her in case she isn't knowledgable enough or concerned enough about animal welfare to understand my fear. i love cats. i don't want to have molested them.

Stop Breeding, Consider Adoption
Thu, 23 Oct 2014 05:37:32 +0000
submitted by ellietan
I do not understand why breeders are still making money selling pets while thousands of house pets such as cats, rabbits, dogs are being abandoned. If people consider to adopt from organizations instead of purchasing from pet shops or breeders, this will create less abaondonment and can save lives.
Many babies sold at pet shops are taken from their mother 2-3 weeks after their birth; these babies are weak as they do not have enough milk and caring from their mother. With that said, if you purchase babies at pet shops, they might not be healthy and may not have a long lifespan.

PA set to ban live pigeon shoots.. Bill passese Senate, Corbett says he'll sign...House set to vote today...House Majority Leader blocks it
Wed, 22 Oct 2014 18:16:14 +0000
submitted by deathbatcountry
SHARK just posted a pretty disappointing post on FB regarding this. SHARK has been leading the charge to get this banned in PA for some time. The overwhelming vote in the senate was historic and Tom Corbett had said he'd be signing the bill. The house was set to vote today and even though House Majority Leader Mike Turzai said he would allow a vote on it to happen, he in fact lied and stopped the vote from happening today. Apparently the house was set to vote overwhelmingly in support of the ban as well. He apparently has caved to the preasure of the NRA and wealthy pigeon killers.
SHARK is urging PA residents to contact him and ask him why he lied to the public of PA who has shown overwhelming support of banning live pigeon shoots.

[Wildlife Wednesday] Asian Black Bear
Wed, 22 Oct 2014 16:51:49 +0000
submitted by ChingShih
Welcome to Wildlife Wednesday, brought to you by /r/AntiPoaching, where we highlight a species (or in this case, two species) that are currently or historically poached. These species may also be legally hunted in some areas, or killed as a result of human-wildlife conflict. The previous wildlife featured were the Seven Species of Sea Turtles.
Asian Black Bear
The Asian Black Bear (Ursus thibetanus) lives in the far east of mainland Asia extending from Russia through the Korean peninsula south into China as well as Southeast Asia and parts of India. A narrow band reaches along the more temperate areas immediately south of the Himalayas across to Afghanistan. The species also has historically existed on the island of Taiwan as well as the southern three main islands of Japan.
Certain Japanese dog breeds of the Akita have been used as Asian Black Bear hunting dogs. Before the widespread use of firearms in Japan these hunts would have involved a group of several Akita taking down one Bear so that the hunter or community could make use of the Bear’s pelt, meat, and claws.
Bears have played an influential role in the mythologies of prehistoric people and are even recognized as the national symbols of both Russia and South Korea. Belief systems involving the Bear as one’s spiritual ancestor or kin may have led to arctolatry, Bear worship, which is still represented by the traditions of some indigenous cultures. There are also a number of Bear related folklore and myths in traditional Indian and Hindu cultures.
The Ainu people, who live on islands now belonging to Japan and Russia, have special ceremonies involving the release of the Bear’s spirit so that it might leave the world of man and return to the world of the gods. The Nivkh people indigenous to the Russian Far East have a very similar traditional ceremony which they still observe. The Ainu word kamuy, meaning “God” or a “divine spirit,” is also used to describe a Bear and in modern Japanese Kamui (カムイ) is one of the modern terms for a god or spirit.
Conservation Status & Threats
Many countries, including China, have laws protecting Asian Black Bears and other species from being hunted. However many countries overlook similar protections for the habitats which leads to deforestation causing habitat loss and insufficient food supply being one of the largest threats to the Asian Black Bear and other Bear species in parts of China and Southeast Asia.
In Asia the main threat of predation seems to be from humans either from hunting and poaching or due to human-wildlife conflict when bears raid farms for sustenance and are killed by property owners (sometimes proactively). In Russia, Japan, and India the Bear is illegally hunted, typically for its skin and body parts that are in demand in the Asian market, however Indians prize the gall bladder. Meanwhile in China and Korea Bear farms have been legalized so that parts demanded by traditional Chinese medicine can be harvested.
Wildlife conflict also sometimes occurs, particularly in the northern part of their range adult Asian Black Bears have been known to be predated on by Brown Bears and Tigers. In Southeast Asia young Asian Black Bears have occasionally fallen prey to Leopards.
Due to the omnivorous nature of Bears and the ability for the Asian Black Bear to adapt to and survive in a variety of climates, it’s important that their normal food sources, succulent plants in the spring; fruits and insects in the summer; and high-fat and high-protein nuts in the autumn, having sustainable vegetation is important not just for shelter, but also so that they can survive hibernation during the winter in northern latitudes. Asian Black Bears in warmer climates do not need to hibernate, but are still susceptible to habitat loss through logging, slash and burn, and changes in agricultural land usage in south Asia.
Note: This section on the conservation status and threats to Bears in Asia is continued at the end of the article.
Habitat & Life
Like its American relative the Asian Black Bear is omnivorous and occasionally eats large prey. But its diet will vary based on the season and region that it lives in, particularly if it lives in a climate where hibernation during cold winter months is mandatory. Asian Black Bears that do not hibernate because they live in warmer climates will forage year round to supplement any large prey that becomes part of their diet. During the spring, particularly for Bears just coming out of hibernation, the diet will primarily consists of seeds and nuts, then shift toward insects and larva during the early summer to supplement a diet inclusive of meat from large prey. Fruits and vegetation make up a large part of their diet during summer months and explains their desire to raid orchards and farms for food during this period.
Asian Black Bears live in dens, and if they live in cold climates will hibernate in their den from November through March. These dens also serve as a place for giving birth to young, of which there may be as many as four, but typically only two. They will learn to crawl before they are able to open their eyes, which occurs when they are about seven days old, and will be weaned after around 115 days. Cubs will stay with their mother for two to three years as they learn to be self-sufficient.
Around this time the cubs will become sexually mature and will move off to find their own territory. Asian Black Bears in southern Asia tend not to travel very far each day, covering perhaps only a few hundred meters depending on the level of human disturbance to the area. In the expansive northern regions they may have territories of several square kilometers. This differs dramatically from large cat species that live in the same regions, such as the Tiger who has a territory of 20-100 km2 and the Leopard with a 15-80 km2 territory.
On average Asian Black Bears can live to be 35 years old in the wild, but their lifespan may more typically range between 25-45 years.
Due to the large historic range of Asian Black Bears, and the subsequent isolation of some of their populations on islands of Japan as well as isolated areas of China and Russia, a total of nine subspecies of Asian Black Bear emerged. Two species native to Western Europe and the Eastern Europe/Central Asia area are extinct, leaving seven subspecies today all located in Asia.
The American Black Bear (Ursus americanus) is a separate species that descended from the Asian Black Bear more than 4 million years ago and has historically lived throughout Canada, the United States, and parts of Central America. American Black Bears can be a similar size or much larger on average than their Asian counterparts and adult males can weigh 115-270 kilograms (253-594 pounds).
The Sun Bear, while inhabiting some of the same regions as the Asian Black Bear, is classified as being in a different genus than its relatives and is exclusively found in the tropical forests of Southeast Asia.
Male and female Asian Black Bears are significantly different in size, demonstrating sexual dimorphism. Males typically weigh between 110-150 kg (242-330 lb) while females weigh 65-90 kg (143-198 lb), with as much as an 85 kg (187 lb) difference between the smallest female and largest male.
The Asian Black Bear is also called the Moon Bear because of the white, V-shaped marking on its chest. The Sun Bear (Helarctos malayanus) has a similar U-shaped or V-shaped, typically reddish marking on its chest and occupies similar regions in Southeast Asia. However these two species are very easy to tell apart due to their size, with the Sun Bear weighing less than half of the Asian Black Bear’s 135 kg (297 lb).
Comparison (Figures are approx.)
Conservation Status & Threats (Cont’d.)
Warning: This continuation of Conservation Status & Threats may contain disturbing or graphic descriptions.
In China, Korea, Laos, and Vietnam the Asian Brown Bear (Ursus arctos), Sun Bear (Helarctos malayanus), and Black Bear (Ursus thibetanus) are captured or killed for their parts for use in traditional medicines or are served as delicacies. Some of these countries have alleged efforts to curb illegal hunting and the decimation of the species through the use of farming. However there is little interest in creation of captive breeding programs so that Bears are being bred on the farms. Instead most Bears seem to be coming from the wild and thus these farms contribute to depleting the wild population, not protecting it.
In China Bear ranching has been legalized so that Bears can continue to be actively farmed for their parts. South Korea also has laws protecting the farming of the Asian Black Bear for both bile and paws. According to the Bears: Status Survey and Conservation Action Plan 2,700 kilograms (5,940 pounds) of Bear paws, a modern delicacy, were exported from just one Chinese province in 1990.
In folk medicine Bear bile has been used to treat a variety of illnesses, including muscle ailments, hemorrhoids, sore throats, and even epilepsy. While Bear bile has been shown (warning: graphic images) to possibly have medicinal value there are synthetic and herbal medicines available to treat virtually every ailment that Bear bile allegedly cures.
To farm bile Bears are stored in small cages, some so small that they are forced into a permanent prone position. A catheter is used, or a hole created, to drain bile from the gallbladder. This extraction of bile is thought to occur once or twice a day, but only provides a small amount of fluid. Due to the generally poor conditions that the Bears are subjected to their health, and overall life expectancy, is considerably reduced. However some Bears are fitted with vests to prevent them from killing themselves because of the pain. Malnourished and without adequate living conditions to prevent severe illness these Bears have been recorded showing severe psychological stress and physical problems. In one instance a mother Bear escaped its cage and killed its cub before killing herself. After several years of living in these conditions Bears may not be able to produce adequate supplies of bile and are then killed. Their paws and meat are then sold as delicacies.
The American Black Bear is also targeted by poachers who sell the gallbladder and other parts to practitioners of Traditional Chinese Medicine living in the West or is shipped to Asia.

When I first went vegan, I missed both Greek yogurt and brownies. While I've since found vegan versions of both, I've wanted something a bit healthier that can satisfy my craving for creamy, chocolatey foods. Lately, I've been trying to boost my protein intake, while avoiding soy, and I discovered the Vega Protein Smoothie mixes, which can be found at Whole Foods. The chocolate Vega mix tastes great, and provides 15g of protein with no soy, sugar or gluten, with only 90 calories per serving. Today, I blended 2 scoops of the chocolate smoothie mix with 1/2 container (about 1 cup) of plain cultured coconut yogurt (So Delicious brand) and- instant brownie batter! It tastes delicious. A big bowl provides about 340 calories, 30 g protein, 10 g fat and 34 g carbs, but you could scale up or down depending on how much chocolate goodness you can handle. Might be good for those looking to build muscle, as a replacement for another boring shake or smoothie. Enjoy!

Need help on making a recipe vegan while still keeping what I love about it!
Thu, 23 Oct 2014 16:49:12 +0000
submitted by snazzypantz
So I'm attending a potluck next week with a "breakfast for dinner" theme. I'll be making basically mini potatoes au gratin cups...the original recipie is basically layers of thinly sliced potatoes, herbs, cheese, and heavy cream. There will be at least one vegan attending, and I would love to be more inclusive and make a few of these cups that are vegan-friendly.
They are great because the top and bottom of the potatoes get really cripsy and the inside stays soft and creamy. One thing that makes them really delicious , though, is how the cheese gets crunchy and caramelized on the top and sides.
I will probably sub almond milk for the cream, but what are your suggestions for cheese substitutes? In my experience, vegan cheese melts weirdly, and I would love to find something like Parmesan that gets nice and crunchy when it's roasted. It doesn't even necessarily have to be a cheese substitute...anything that would enhance the bite and crunch on the top would work.
Sorry for my clulessness, and any other suggestions are welcome!

Ridiculously easy and satisfying nutritional yeast cheese sauce!
Thu, 23 Oct 2014 00:56:16 +0000
submitted by kitkat--
This is my first personal foray into vegan cheese sauce, but I've tried others. I wasn't too keen on having to soak cashews, boil vegetables, or stress out my ancient blender, so I decided to try and wing it--and it worked!
The measurements here are approximations; start around there and fiddle with it to your taste.
Make a roux with the margarine and flour (or nutritional yeast). Add a splash of coconut cream and mix until you get a paste, then gradually add more until it reaches a thick cheese sauce texture. Dump in the nutritional yeast and mix. Add seasoning/more nutritional yeast to taste and add more coconut cream to thin it out if you like.
I'm enjoying it on spaghetti squash right now--and it didn't occur to me that the taste of the squash would add more sweetness, so I put in a fair amount more salt and pepper. I'm looking for ways to make it a bit more cheesy and savory. Use the worcestershire and paprika sparingly (or eliminate if you prefer) because they have sweet elements to their tastes as well!

Rediquette Reminder on Vote Brigading, Spamming and the Report Button!
Thu, 08 May 2014 18:18:44 +0000
submitted by M4124124
1. Vote brigading: Some people in other subreddits are accusing members of /r/vegan of vote brigading. While it is fine to link to other posts that may be of interest to fellow vegans, it is bad reddiquette to call on others to upvote or downvote posts or comments. Please, don't even imply it. It is also bad reddiquette to downvote stuff just because you disagree with it. Don't use the downvote arrow just to punish people for having a different opinion. Sometimes it's better to just ignore and move on, though feel free to comment with genuinely helpful information. Don't be a troll.
2. Spamming: Some users have been promoting their own sites here. We welcome new content that is relevant to veganism and the occasional link to your content is fine. However, don't be a spammer. If your posts are entirely (or mostly) your own material, and especially if you are posting several times a week, then you are spamming and will end up being banned. Instead of submitting every post from your blog, take time to choose some of your better posts and then post them occasionally (like once every few weeks). If people want to subscribe to the rest, they can do so through your site (you have made RSS subscriptions easy, right?). Then, take part in the community in other ways. Comment on other posts and submit other relevant content you find.
3. Report button: Please report posts or comments if they are spam or trolling. We mods do not read every post and comment. If you need to talk to the mods, please message us directly instead of posting a comment that we may or may not see. There's a link to message mods on the right sidebar, to the top right of the moderators list. Please do not use the report button on posts just because you don't care for the kind of post (unless it is spam, off-topic, trolling or the like). Just downvote or ignore. Reporting links just because you don't like recipe posts or memes just clogs up the modqueue, which wastes our time that could be better spent dealing with spammers and trolls.
Thank you for your time and attention!

I'm not wanting to start a circle jerk or anything, I just need a small vent. Been vegan about 9month now. Did it for ethical reasons but the health benefits have really helped me. Lost a ton of fat, feel great and look the best I have in years. Yesterday, someone I know mentioned to someone one that I was vegan, it just came up in the conversation. This third person then asked me really surprised if I was vegan. I said yeah and downplayed it. I don't like to bring it up as where I live is not really vegan friendly. She said that I looked too healthy to be vegan and asked how long I'd been vegan. Told her. Her reply was, "oh, give it another year and you won't look so well". Kind of annoyed me. What really annoyed me was that this woman was obese and spotty. Cause obviously all that meat and dairy does her wonders.
Like I said not wanting to start a circle jerk or anything. Just ranting.

Swedish Big Dairy sue Oatly Oat Milk for "lt's like milk, but made for humans" catchphrase. Oatly fights back in court
Thu, 23 Oct 2014 17:46:41 +0000
submitted by rotsaken
Swedish big dairy lobby group LRF Mjölk sues Oatly oat milk producer in attempt to ban Oatly catchphrases "lt's like milk, but made for humans" and "No milk. No soy. No badness." and similar wordings.
Today Oatly won the first legal battle as court denies dairy lobby request for interim nationwide stop of "no badness" labelled oat milk.
While the battle in court is set to continue, Oatly CEO takes to music in defiant "Wow No Cow!" Oatly song prominently including the "lt's like milk, but made for humans" line.
This is the story of a stagnant lobby giant (LRF Mjölk members have $3 billion in yearly sales in Sweden alone) desperately trying to crush a small but growing competitor (Oatly non-dairy sales: $16 million).
The swedish dairy lobby even seek to ban phrases like "wherever and whenever you would find yourself drinking milk or using it in a recipe 'back in the day', you can use Oat Drink today". Reason? Lobby claims it gives impression that dairy is not modern!
LRF Mjölk is the latest in a line of swedish dairy lobby outfits, tracing back to the original Mjölkpropagandan (literally "The Milk Propaganda" - lobbyists named themselves more honestly back then) which for many decades got swedish state funds to arrange "milk days" and "milk lessons" in swedish schools and display milk propaganda posters.

Not sure if this is the right place, but I wanted to ask- what do you use instead of fried eggs?
I know you can use mashed bananas in baking, and scramble tofu instead of eggs, but if you fancied fried eggs on toast, for example, what would you use?
I've been flirting with veganism for a while, but eggs are something I'm struggling with. Help and/or recipes are greatly appreciated!
Edit; Thank you all so much for your help! I'm overwhelmed at the response this got. I am so appreciative of all your advice and guidance! <3

I have only been vegan 3 months and it took me about 29 years to figure this out. I'm just curious about people who have been vegan from birth, details like what your parents told you about animal products, how old are you, what it was like around your peers growing up etc... Whatever you feel like sharing.
