Yeah, yoga's great for bodybuilding. Check out this advanced yogi, Harold Zinkin (Mr. California 1957 and founder of the company that makes the Universal Gym), doing a backbend at Muscle Beach.

Hi Kate! Yep, this is one of those comments I find so annoying. I mean think about it, what's this person really getting at? Don't women and men have the same basic needs for protein? Can't women be big and strong? I bet people who say this sort have some backward thinking when it comes to women. I ...

A hearty thank you

SiNa94, I just want to let you know that, while I disagree with you on many points, I consider each of your posts to be a gift. I appreciate the chance you are giving me to exercise my brain by challenging my thinking as I continue to strive to end the institutional exploitation and killing of other...

Re: Support hunting to ban factory farms?

I haven't read, or at least read thoroughly, the other pieces you've quoted here, but this particular quote sounded familiar, and completely taken out of it's original context. Actually, it is the original context. Singer, as you point out, straight up says, "I do not , on balance, object to f...

Re: Support hunting to ban factory farms?

Singer does not agree with animal exploitation, and I don't know where you came up with that. Actually, Singer is quite clear on being supportive of a world in which animal exploitation continues, whether it's humans using nonhumans for their own benefit, or humans using other humans. That is, Sing...

Re: Support hunting to ban factory farms?

I agree that Scully does not openly advocate veganism or AR. I have not read enough of his work to know whether he is opposed to either, however. Is this what you are saying? As to Singer, I didn't know why anyone would "go vegan" until I read Animal Liberation , which was the start of my...

I know thats not what its about but he's been given so many strikes. This is just another straw...another last straw. Churchill isn't native American...he never was. It reminds me of The Jerk...when Steve Martin grew up black. Churchill applied for a position that was only available for Native Amer...

Explain to me how acting totalitarian, militant, and morally-superior are GOOD for the movement. Religious zealots are what have turned me, as well as many other people I know, off from religion. Maybe if you're Hitler you can unite an entire country in veganism by telling them it's the only way to...

Yes. I do believe the point is being missed completely here (with the exception of Clever Name, perhaps). "Support" might be a bit of an exaggeration of what I'm trying to get at here... but it IS a question, not a demand. How much can we work with hunters, and on what, before it's no lon...

Re: Support hunting to ban factory farms?

As much as AR groups want to see animal rights in our lifetime, we often have to start with animal WELFARE until such a point as we can argue for RIGHTS. Consider PETA's progress in getting McDonald's, Safeway, etc. to treat their animals better than they did before the campaigns. By insisting on b...

Hunting counter to environmentalism and animal advocacy

[ The following is an article I wrote titled "The Environment" that was published in the fall of 2006. ] Animal agriculture degrades the environment in many ways – from deforestation and grassland destruction to water pollution; from intensive energy consumption and global warming to the g...

Re: Support hunting to ban factory farms?

One of my favorite quotes is one by Martin Niemoeller. First they came for the Communists, but I was not a Communist so I did not speak out. Then they came for the Socialists and the Trade Unionists, but I was neither, so I did not speak out. Then they came for the Jews, but I was not a Jew so I di...

Obviously the child was on a starvation diet, not a vegan diet. There is no report that the couple knew how to raise a baby, or any mention of why the child wasn't breast fed. I disagree that the couple "deserves" a life sentence. I have no doubt that were Jade Sanders and Lamont Thomas wh...
