WAIW | Health Concerns

Image contains vertical wood panelling with a number of darker brown knots scattered throughout each panel.

Even though I've been fighting against it for years, it seems far too many people still think it's justified to fat shame in the vegan community (and the world in general). So, in today's WAIW episode, I thought I should suggest other causes they could focus their time and energy on. Read More »

Image contains a series of orange-red tiles with a black and white dog laying down in the bottom-right hand corner. On the left side, a series of metal dog bowls sit empty.

T.O.F.U. #13 | The First Article

Image contains an illustration with a green background around a rectangular board with a series of tiles and pegs on it. Near the top, a small grey emoticon with a concerned look is entering the board and headed downward. The series of squares are paired from the top to the bottom with shades of red on the left and shades of blue on the right. From left to right, the tiles include a person hugging a heart, a few pills, a magazine with a far person on the cover, a tile with "Try the vegan cure! Go vegan! Be thin" written on it, an image with three people holding hands, a television with a headless and legless fat person shown, a tile with "#bodyacceptance", and a tile with "#oilfree, #soyfree, #sugarfree". Below the tiles, there is a gradient going from light red on the left to dark red on the right. On the far left of the gradient, there is a smiling emoticon. In the middle, there is an image of a stick figure. Finally, on the far right, there is a frowning emoticon.

The next issue is almost done, so I thought I should give you a chance to read the first article to get an idea of just what to expect from T.O.F.U. #13. Read More »
