If a vegan is able to make you feel bad about eating meat, you should probably ask yourself why that is. Why is it that simply being told facts about where your food comes from is able to make you feel bad? Is it because vegans are evil, or is it because a part of you knows just how wrong it is?

For those of you out of Australia, a shark attacked someone and so the government has called for a giant kill of sharks in the area. Maassive protests have been held on beaches across Australia to protest this slaughter.
This dude is Australian Navy Diver Paul de Gelder who 5 years ago lost his arm and leg to a massive bull shark in Sydney Harbour. He is speaking out against the mass slaughter of sharks around Western Australia. Paul de Gelder is a champ.

"Could you look an animal in the eyes and say to it, ‘My appetite is more important than your suffering’?” - Moby
“Veganism is not a limitation in any way; it’s an expansion of your love, your commitment to nonviolence, and your belief in justice for all.”  - Gary L. Francione
"If animals are not mere things; if they have moral value, we cannot justify eating, wearing, or using them particularly when we have no better reason than palate pleasure or fashion.  If you are eating, wearing, or using animals, then your actions say that you regard them as mere things, despite what your words say.” - Gary L. Francione
“Veganism is not about giving anything up or losing anything; it is about gaining the peace within yourself that comes from embracing nonviolence and refusing to participate in the exploitation of the vulnerable” - Gary L. Francione
“Being vegan is easy. Are there social pressures that encourage you to continue to eat, wear, and use animal products? Of course there are. But in a patriarchal, racist, homophobic, and ableist society, there are social pressures to participate and engage in sexism, racism, homophobia, and ableism. At some point, you have to decide who you are and what matters morally to you. And once you decide that you regard victimizing vulnerable nonhumans is not morally acceptable, it is easy to go and stay vegan” - Gary L. Francione
