It's International Hug a Vegetarian Day!
Please shower your compassionate friends with *love*!

Hugs are great for vegetarians, but vegans deserve kisses also, IMO, because we go the extra mile to stop the suffering of billions of people.  Therefore, please hug every vegetarian you can lay your hands on, but also find tons of vegans to kiss today!

Love and light,

Tiffany

June 2009


This month, I'm celebrating my 11-YEAR VEGAN ANNIVERSARY!  Will you please help me to celebrate 11 years of a compassionate lifestyle by donating any multiple of $11 to In Defense of Animals in my name?
 
This year, I’ve chosen to support IDA for its contributions to the alterations of speciesist law and legal language.  Current laws, far from protecting the rights of non-human animals, continually fail to offer even basic non-human welfare protection.  One of IDA’s current US projects is “The Guardian Campaign”, seeking to change language referring to the human relationship to companion animals from “owner” to “guardian”, altering remedies for abuse, neglect and abandonment.
 
To learn more about and donate to IDA, please visit http://www.idausa.org/

Thank you!

Dear friends,


I'm so sorry that I've been neglecting my site again.  It's so wonderful to stop by, after having been wrapped up in life's challenges, and find so many messages and posts.  Thank you!

Californians, please vote YES on PROP 2!

Please find the official argument for PROP 2 in my blog.  Here are my thoughts on the matter:

Before reading the newly-released argument for PROP 2, please put the idea of factory farming, which accounts for more than 90% of the human "production" of animals for food, in perspective:

Imagine living your entire life confined to the seat of an airplane, along with the hundreds of others of your species in the same airplane. Make no mistake: You would not be permitted to leave your seat to use the toilet; you would have to urinate and deficate in your seat and on yourself, as would those in the seats next to you, and stacked above you and below you; nor would you be allowed to leave your seat to eat or drink; you would be force-fed a mixture of dead humans. When your natural agressive tendancies arose, as can be expected under such severe stress, causing you to lash out at your neighbors, your hands would be cut off without anesthesia, and the resulting infections would not be treated. Your eyes, nose, throat and resperatory tract would burn and become infected from the acids caused by the urine and feces in your enclosed environment, and under minimal artificial light, you would lose your natural pigments.

You would, of course, never know touch, affection, companionship or family, as, if you were to have children, which would be the products of rape by machine, they would be taken from you. You would, however, know daily terror as you witnessed others around you being dragged from their seats (unable to walk from pain and bodies ceasing to function), electrocuted, beaten, kicked, prodded and dragged with metal hooks. As you were taken away in the same way, you would be dragged into a place filled with blood, feces and vomit (natural secretions voided by all mamals during moments of pure terror); and then, you would be stunned, your throat cut carelessly and ineptly, hung upside-down (via hooks through your ankles), at which point there would be more than a 50% chance that you would be skinned alive and sawed apart, an ordeal that could leave you conciously suffering for 10-15 minutes.

Ah, but this couldn't happen to you because you were lucky enough to be born human. This is equally as rational a thought as that of the luck of the Aryan in Nazi Germany. Speciesism is no less a crime than racism, and factory farms are no less than Aschwitz. Ultimately, therefore, if we are to end such a crime, factory farming must be abolished altogether; however, this modest step, which sadly amounts to one of the largest animal-rights actions in history because of the number of animals it would save, is necessary because of the depth of speciesist thought in which we live. Voting YES on PROP 2 won't hurt you; it will only stop the hurt for someone else of another species. Please vote YES on PROP 2.

Speciesism and Intelligence

In making arguments for animal rights, particularly as consumption is concerned, recently, I've run into the old, supposed-intellectual-superiority argument very frequently, and I've found myself wanting to pull out my Mensa membership card to carry the argument beyond speciesism:

On Speciesist Consumption and the Presumed Rights Afforded by Intelligence

While the majority of the human race, which inflicts dire misery on other species and, in doing so, insidiously rapes the life of the earth for the sake of feeding itself unnecessarily, behaves as it does out of ignorance, when confronted with the results of its actions and ineluctable knowledge, the vast majority of this race, employing speciesist philosophy and pretending awareness of the scope of its actions, will hostilely insist that it has (and presumably has always had) the right to behave as it does because it possesses the planet's superior intelligence. To this I say that, by this reasoning, it is my right to rape, torture, skin alive, murder and eat 98 percent of the human species.

Ah, Julia Sugarbaker. This old quote came to my mind while a male Republican explained to me, metaphorically and in jest, of course, that Democrats are as they are (hm) because they lack a strong, male authority (father) figure. I refrained from explaining to him that, as is true with most Republican philosophies, this one was based on a false assumption, that the world was a better place when dominated by men.

"You cannot ignore history. History has shown that in general it has been the men who have done the rapin’ and the robbin’ and the killin’ and the war mongering for the last 2000 years. It has been the men who have done the pillaging and the beheading and the subjugating of whole races into slavery. It has been the men who have done the law makin and the money makin’ and most of the mischief makin’. So, if the world isn’t quite what you had in mind, you have only yourselves to thank."
-Julia Sugarbaker, Designing Women

Beautiful friends,

I'm so sorry that I've been out of touch lately; my life has been a bit difficult since the fire.  Thank you for your messages and cards, and love to all of you!

Dear magical friends,

San Diego is not expected to have any rain until next year, and the next Santa Ana, bringing with it a new fire threat, is expected to arrive in the region next week!  Please help by directing your energies toward the water element and temperature reduction:  Place a bowl of iced water, rather than candles, on each of your alters, and as you work with this element, focus on a cool, wet San Diego.  Please join me in healing the parched land!

Thank you!
