There is nothing "badass" or "manly" about cooking and eating a piece of meat you bought at the supermarket, cut from an animal somebody else killed, cleaned and prepared for you on a factory farm you'd probably vomit if you ever had to walk through, let alone work in.

It’s strange that despite needing to hunt animals to survive for most of our evolutionary history, we don’t actually have a built in urge/desire to hunt or find prey unless we have no other choice but to do so.

In Finding Nemo, Charlotte's Web, and Chicken Run we are all rooting for the animals throughout the movie to be free from harm and to not be killed or captured. Yet animals in real life are facing the same unjust reality and we turn our backs and contribute to their injustices.

The Huberman Lab podcast guest recommendation

I am going to ask Andrew Huberman to do an episode on plant-based diets, and I would like to know who are the leading researchers in the field. Can you help me out?

Urgent: 2 roosters in NC in need of rescue

I’ve been in touch with a chicken farmer in North Carolina (Johnston County, not far from Raleigh) who has found themselves with 3 roosters, 2 of which they are unable to keep. They’ve had no luck finding someone to take them in, and are now discussing which 2 of the 3 to kill (they want to do everything possible to avoid this, but it sounds like their partner is less attached to them and the pressure is on).

If anyone has any connections (farm sanctuaries, rooster rehoming services, personal friends) that may be able to help these 2 adorable roos, please let me know!

Hardest part of being a vegan, my timeline

First three months: Craving something and realizing I can no longer have it because it's not vegan

First year: Realizing how many of my things are not vegan, and not sure what I should do with my leather coats or where to buy a decent mascara or face cream and in some cases spending five times as much money on quality a third as good as the animal version

Second year: No longer feeling comfortable going to social events that revolve around food because a) there won't be food for me and b) meat eaters will interrogate my food choices when they notice my plate is different than theirs

Third year: Trying to figure out when I should speak up for the animals vs avoiding talking about veganism or being typecast as "one of those vegans" by the majority of the population. For a minute I say I'm "plant based" to try and avoid the triggering stereotype the word vegan has on people.... Plant based ain't the same tho. And, it means I have to talk about it a lot more. Ultimately, I avoid more and more situations where I'd ever have to mention it at all.

Fourth year: By now I knew many people that at one point seriously declared themselves as vegan, were vegan for a bit, and now gave it t up completely. I used to think that the difference between being vegan and not being vegan was an awareness of what happens to animals.... But by now I've known so many fleeting vegans that I'm starting to lose faith in humanity. An ex vegan does know what the animals go through.... They just decided its not worth it to care

Fifth year: Starting to notice I see the world in a very different way than most other people do. Veganism has taught me how to pull the curtain away from things that make me uncomfortable to see, acknowledge it, and take responsibility for my place in it. Feeling more and more sickened by the parallels of other things people ignore. The cognitive dissonance. Not just for animal welfare, but for so many other things as well. I'm mad. But, mostly, I'm quiet. I wish I could yell at people to smarten up but that certainly wouldn't make them change. I can't make them change. People do change, on their own time, when they're ready... But most people will never be ready

Sixth year: I fucking hate our species so much. We, humans, are the worst thing that has ever lived on this planet.

Seventh year: I don't know how to have normal social conversations anymore. I seem to always end up mad about something or other. Good reasons. Were people always this Racist? Sexist? Violent? Selfish? Gluttonous? Casual interactions where they say awful things. Goddamn. I wasn't like this before. I used to ignore ugly things too. I don't know how to ignore anything anymore

.....

I hope it gets better. I'm confident it will. I didn't always used to think this bad... I hope year by year I find an evolution into a different way of thinking, one full of love or understanding... Not so full of hate.

What has your vegan evolutionary experience been like?

Is convincing highly influential internet people a reasonable strategy to spread veganism?

Do you think it'd be a sensible strategy to present arguments for veganism to major internet figures whose content has nothing to do with veganism in hope that they might be convinced and spread the message further? If their platform allows them to reach millions of followers, who rarely come into contact with animal ethics, isn't there substantial potential for the movement to expand?

I've not thought about this too much, so my assumptions might be erroneous. For example, even in case some podcasters and influencers were persuaded, would they be willing to share their thoughts on this to an audience who is watching and following them for a very different reason (say, business advice or video games). Or, is it likely that the audience would adopt veganism and stick with it based on one video by a figure they look up to?

Looking forward to reading your thoughts on this.
