Do they also oppose water fluoridation because that's totally a communist conspiracy?

OMG tlish what a wacky article!
i wonder why i have such awesome toofs now?!?!?!?!?
they should be rotting out of my head!!

and this is the best rationalization ever:
Quote:
As a side note, breast milk is not vegan. Humans are animals, and I fully support breastfeeding. But if you're going to breastfeed your child and you are vegan, you might as well give them other animal foods as well so they can be healthy.


i wish i wasnt at working pretending im not reading articles so i could read the whole thing in more depth.

my aunt is a dental hygenist and apparently a lot of super earthy crunchy natural hippie type people oppose water flouridation.
i believe the reasoning was because they oppose any chemicals added to anything i think.

not sure what the whole line of reasoning was but there are people out there that oppose it.

my rock hard toofs like it.

The breastfeeding not being vegan thing- words fail me!

Interested though to discover that there are no mammal-herbivores...

My mom has mild lactose intolerance but takes some sort of pills so she can keep drinking a glass of milk with every meal. Because she is TERRIFIED of osteoporosis, and is convinced that drinking lots of milk is the only way to not get osteoporosis.

Also- anyone who thinks breastfeeding is not vegan is REALLY missing the point. As if it were about avoiding animal products (including human breast milk) just because they are animal products by definition...

The stories of the resistance to dairy allergies is making me crazy! Luckily, I have a few friends with dairy-allergic kids and they messaged me right away and to ask for some recipes and product recommendations. One couple keeps messaging me because they're dying to set up a vegan pizza making hang-out! I'm going to have to give them a big huge hug next time I see them.

If you're going to breastfeed, you might as well feed your baby pork chops.

That's called logic.

My sister-in-law (who is an ex-vegan, but is still vegetarian - but eats fish...) is really sensitive to dairy and gets really bad stomach aches from it, but is of the, "But mmmm cheese, I couldn't live without it!" camp. But she's also sensitive to soy, so she says, and she avoids that like the plague. Like, at restaurants, she will ask if there's any soy in something just to be sure because she doesn't want to be sick, but will then eat ice cream and feel sick but be fine with that.

i'm sorry, she had to eat Vegan Cheese From McDonalds? WHAT? Has McDonalds turned into some secret vegan paradise while we've been hand-grinding almonds for our artesanal cheeses?? What on earth did she claim to be eating that was vegan?????

it was kinda confusing the way i wrote it, but the disgusting vegan cheese that she had to eat and the McDonalds things she was eating in order to keep weight on (what the fizzle?? of all the high-calorie things out there??) were two different things. both equally strange and infuriating! why did you have to eat disgusting vegan cheese? and why does that make all vegan cheese disgusting? and why do i have to be so damn polite when i talk to people that i never ask these questions to their faces?

Why does dark/edgy have to involve gross stuff like clothing/accessories made of 'road kill'?...

The last two meals I've had from the local vegetarian restaurant were... not good. They just started doing brunch recently, and their pancakes were gummy and bland and awful, and their tofu scramble was dry and had so much turmeric that it was all I could taste. Today, they had chile rellenos as the special and I was crazy excited about them, but the peppers were almost raw (I had to cut that shiitake with a knife), and the filling just tasted like salty TVP and teese.

Maybe I should just stick with my usual top 5 or something.


Is it The Wild Cow or a new place?


Wild Cow. It's usually really good, so I feel weird complaining. I do wish I'd spoken up about the brunch though. It's a relatively new thing, and I'd like for it to be successful, but it was just bad.

I sautéed all three of my babies in a little olive oil and breastfed some pork chops instead. Those babies did give me pretty terrible gas, but it was worth it to have my butt stop sagging.

But olive oil... Isn't that (whisper it) vegan?

Should have used lard.

Good point. But there's always next time! (Who's going to break this to my partner?)

Once again, bloody hospital food (or lack of it).
Got in A&E early this morning, transferred to a ward where I was told they had no food I could eat at all. Didn't get discharged till 7pm. No food all day. Ridiculous!

I hope you are going to formally complain. That is beyond ridiculous.

My mom's post on Facebook saying "where do you get one of those down coats with coyote fur trim? They are so warm and coyotes kill small dogs and cats" and my sister piping up and saying how great they were and coyotes are killing livestock and attacking people in the suburbs in her area. And when I freaked on both of them and asked how she would like it if her dog got stuck in a leg hold trap for 5 days she said "all the hunters I know use guns. Have a good night".

I hate that I am related to people that I don't like. And my sister used to be a vegetarian.

Oh man, that is so crappy. One of my greatest pet peeves is how coyotes are so maligned by people. They're the ones who belong here and I feel like some loss of livestock is the price you pay for invading their habitat. As if thats an excuse to Kill them anyway. and if people dont want their pets killed, supervise them when theyre outside! jeeze. Preaching to the choir, I know.

I just saw a terrible fb post by maybe animal place or some other sanctuary of a coyote they had to put down after getting stuck in a foot trap and almost gnawing his leg completely off. Maybe that is something you can share on her wall...
