This might not be news to all of you, but I thought this article was really interesting. It's nice to see someone other than vegans showing some outrage at the way in which dairy is marketed to the public, especially when that marketing is using taxpayer dollars.

A comprehensive study of ALL of the subsidies that go into animal enterprise industries would blow ALL of our minds. So forking sad.

This is exactly the kind of cynical bullshiitake that made me go vegan in the first place. The understanding that I'd been played my whole life, that an entire system I'd been told in a million different ways was indispensable to me was actually a sick joke. I knew I had to say, "You no longer speak for me. Or to me."

Well, I like that they're forthright, if nothing else.

It's so saddening to see how much nutritional "information" available to the public is deceitful or even completely fabricated.
