Re: Honey; Vegan or no?

In short, I would say honey is not vegan for the simple reason that at least some bees die in the process of taking the honey from them and these are unnecessary deaths because we have ways of obtaining nutritionally similar foods (sugar, agave syrup, maple syrup etc.). Having said that, there are d...

Re: Greetings!

We actually got this cat from a relative who moved out of the country so it was either the shelter or us for our cat and we decided to adopt him. I had previously rescued two dogs (one found at a park, the other from a shelter). As for the strays, we didn't feed them in the beginning when we moved h...

Re: Things I don't like about some vegans

Regarding the worldview thing - I have experienced a lot of grief from certain vegans because (due to specific historical circumstances of my country) I do not vote left generally. I think some would actually rather see an omnivore voting left than a vegan voting right. I don't find this type of exc...

Re: Arguments for ethical veganism

Hi, thank you for the reply and for the help, I will use it in my debate. I'm not sure what's up with this guy - he's all over the place; on one hand he admits that our current practices are detrimental to everyone and he said that he may experiment with plant-based foods for health reasons but I ca...

Re: Greetings!

I'm sorry if I've upset anyone with the cat thing - I really did try to find the best option. By "quality" food I meant not Whiskas and the like (the cheapest) because he had skin allergies and diarrhea and had to be put on medication which I find counterproductive to the cause and his health. My ve...

Re: Greetings!

Hi everybody, thank you for the warm welcome. I had always felt guilty eating animals but never imagined I could actually live without them (talk about brainwashing...). When I was a teenager and heard about animal testing, I decided to avoid tested products but I sort of reasoned with myself that k...

Greetings!

Hi, I'm NindriIndri. I have been vegan for the past 5 years and a (selective) omnivore before that. I live in a small European country with my bf, who has been vegetarian for the past 2 years and is now leaning towards veganism, and our cat. I joined this community to get help arguing for ethical ve...

Arguments for ethical veganism

Hello! I hope I've come to the right place - I've gotten myself into an online debate with an omnivore, who claims that ethical veganism is in itself contradictory and hypocritical and I need some help with, firstly, understanding his position in the philosophical sense and secondly, if possible, re...
