  • Vegan Easter by the sea

    Updated: 2009-04-14 11:14:33
    I spent the Easter holiday with a friend in a lovely beach house in a small village in Brazil. The place is a perfect mixture of greenery and seaside, and the tree-roofed unpaved streets are a joy to walk on, barefoot. Unsurprisingly, most restaurants serve fish in their menu which makes eating out somewhat challenging [...]

  • Egg farm investigation leads to ‘changes’, but going vegan is the only significant change

    Updated: 2009-04-13 15:03:17

  • Gay rodeos versus animal rights

    Updated: 2009-04-08 14:17:01
    As a gay man I have always disliked the idea of gay rodeos. For one, it comes from this strange obsession that some gay men have with bullies. Cowboys are a symbol of machismo and although may be valid as a kind of sexual fantasy, acting out the fantasy in rodeos is simply not on. [...]

    Updated: 2009-04-05 15:59:52
    Earlier this week several media outlets announced with alarmist headlines that vegetarian diets can cause eating disorders.

  • Animals in scientific experiments

    Updated: 2009-03-30 18:16:00
    Science has long replaced religion as the paradigm of truth. Is it a good thing? In many cases, yes.

I do not agree with experimentation on animals because I simply don’t believe or [...]
