1. Educate yourself by:
-Watching Gary Yourofsky’s speech on youtube
-Watching From farm to fridge
2. Research cruelty free brands of cosmetics and clothing so you will know what to buy before you go out
3. Eat enough calories so you won’t be tempted to eat non-vegan food
Also surround yourself with like minded people, tumblr has the best vegan community ever! :)
Do not watch Gary Yourofsky. While he is vegan, he supports the rape of women/men who wear fur. While wearing fur is deplorable, to suggest and condone the rape of anyone as punishment is more so. He should not be a representative of the vegan community, especially for people new to the movement/lifestyle.
I just went on the longest fucking rant because Jacksonville just announced that they are putting 63 million dollars into renovations to the Jaguars stadium - this for a team that has yet to prove themselves to their fans that they can actually win. We have players that have “issues with authority” so they constantly get DUI’s and other players who pitch fits and won’t show up for camp/practice because they aren’t getting paid enough money. The city has agreed to cover around 40 million dollars of the cost.
All this while the city is forcing our public libraries to cut 13 million dollars from their budget.
This is why I am not and never have been a fan of the Jaguars. Our city needs to get it’s fucking priorities straight before we end up like Detroit - our team will be in the playoffs, but our economy will have fucking collapsed.
