Hypocritical Carnist
  • Carnist Mom: Holy crap! You're vegan, I can't believe that your dad would ask if you wanted to go hunting when you saw him this Thanksgiving!!! THIS IS SUCH A HUGE DEAL!!!
  • Me: Um...... Yeah....
  • *Flashback of two days ago*
  • Carnist Mom: I know you're vegan, but I'm going to offer you chicken anyways.
  • Me: I'm good...

“crush?”

—Anonymous

Whenever I have one, I get crushed.. There is probably one person out there, but I don’t even know them in person.. I try not to feel too much for others as it is rarely returned..

Anon me a personal question :)

Keep fatphobia out of veganism

Just as some people are naturally slender, some people can be naturally not. It is very very much possible to be heavy, healthy, and happy.

We are what we eat, so if you don’t eat chicken period and cow nipple juice, we shouldn’t have any problems :)

“Just letting you know if you're against egg consumption because of the cruelty in the industry, there is no reason to be against raising your own chickens as pets and consuming the eggs they lay naturally. Really.”

Actually that is incorrect and here’s why!

1. Naturally, hens stop producing eggs once they get a full nest.

2. Stealing eggs from a hen will make her nest incomplete. As a result she will lay more eggs.

3. Over producing eggs leads to denourishment of calcium and other nutrients that the hen needs. Laying extra eggs also applies pressure to the egg laying organs which causes premature death.

However a lot of chickens that are home raised have been genetically mutated over years of farming to not stop producing eggs (without the chicken keepers knowledge)… Which causes the same problems as described in 3. With that being said, a way to replenish the right amount of nutrients that the hen needs, it is existential to teach them to eat their own eggs. You’d be surprised how much hens love their eggs once their body finds out how much nutrients that’s in them. Eggs are not vegan.

Hands down the best reply I’ve seen to this argument ever.  

and it begets the question, why are people so hell-bent on consuming eggs?

they’re not even healthy I just don’t understand

i know this is just gonna get ignored but

i have “wild” chickens

they just showed up here one day and hang out at my house n roam between the neighbors, etc. they have bred over several years n multiplied greatly

they do not stop laying eggs

ever

i am constantly finding eggs in the horses’ hay ring. i leave them alone (don’t remove/eat them) except to move them if i’m putting in a new bale (then put them right back)

and they still keep laying eggs

they don’t eat the eggs. i find a lot of them have been abandoned some place and they spoil. though i’m not eating them, this leads me to believe it wouldn’t harm them if i did. but this is a large group of free range chickens that have roam of several acres, not three backyard hens in a tiny coop. 

also it seems very unnecessary to teach them to eat their own eggs rather than just feed them adequately?

Nope, you’re not ignored, every thought and question on this is important to me :) Odds are that the “wild” chickens that just showed up in your neighborhood were either once in captivity or had a previous generation that was in captivity and escaped. It is not a natural instinct for chickens to eat their own eggs (for obvious reasons), that’s why I said “it is existential to teach them to eat their own eggs”. Once a hen gets a hold of the nutrients in the egg, she’ll start doing it herself. A lot of cruelty-free chicken keepers will even prepare the eggs for them :) It is one of the healthiest things any chicken keeper can do for their chickens with this issue. I hope this answered your concern! :)
