Do You Support Animal Suffering?

Many of us are disgusted and indignant when we learn about animal abuse – as we have seen from the recent outcry over the conditions of animals in the Live Export trade.  Most of us are dismayed by unnecessary harm.. and if cruelty is being inflicted, we outcry and condemn the perpetrators and demand that things should change.  Yet many of us don’t realise that simply by purchasing that leg of lamb, a feather doona, or those Italian leather boots you’ve been lusting after – you are financing cruelties that you would never dream of supporting, if you knew they were happening.  This pamphlet from Boston Vegan Association explains what happens behind the closed doors of agribusiness and other common animal exploitative industries, and why going vegan is the most effective thing you can do to put an end to animal suffering.

Skinny Bitch

Not your typical boring diet book, this is a tart-tongued, no-holds-barred wakeup call to all women who want to be thin. With such blunt advice as, “Soda is liquid Satan” and “You are a total moron if you think the Atkins Diet will make you thin,” it’s a rallying cry for all savvy women to start eating healthy and looking radiant. Unlike standard diet books, it actually makes the reader laugh out loud with its truthful, smart-mouthed revelations. Behind all the attitude, however, there’s solid guidance. Skinny Bitch espouses a healthful lifestyle that promotes whole grains, fruits, and vegetables, and encourages women to get excited about feeling “clean and pure and energized.”
