This prescription would be a hard for a lot of omnivores, but for a farm-raised, country boy like my dad, it was a pretty tall order. Several years ago my now 59 year old father had a heart attack. It wasn’t a major heart attack, but it has definitely caused him problems. He’s been on medication since it happened, and has regular stress tests to see if the damage to his heart has progressed.

On Fighting for "Animal Rights"

On Atheism and Veganism

Animal Person

And atheists who were parented by believers have usually spent time examining the religion they were raised in as well as why we'd believe there is a god at all. For me, atheism and veganism go hand-in-hand. Most of us were born to or adopted by people who eat animals and believe in a god, and that was all a mere accident of birth and/or geography. But something inside us (and perhaps prompted by something outside us) gradually (or quickly) questioned what was occurring.

Newsweek Editor Goes Vegan

Animal Person

There's already a fairly large number of comments that raise the usual topics against vegans and veganism and I didn't see any Animal Person readers in there, though there's no law that says you have to use the same username everywhere so that might not be evidence of anything. Did you see that Newsweek editor David Noonan went vegan (see " I Can't Believe I'm Still a Vegan ")? He clearly needs a bit of encouragement as he finds it "sort of a pain in the ass. And kind of boring, too."

The animals were still bred and raised for slaughter, but evidently in some kind of soulful way we don't really hear about. The New York Times ' Nicholas D. Kristof frustrates me. His passion and compassion for humans is immense, but he appears to have some kind of mental block with nonhuman animals. He comes so close to grasping the concept of justice based on sentience, but his thinking is all muddled by tradition and culture.

On What the Animal Ag Alliance Thinks of Us

Often confused with American Humane Association, they raise tens of millions, not to ‘save the animals’ as most people assume but to further the causes of vegetarianism and ending animal agriculture." Finally, there is some truth in this, but for reasons Parker is not aware of: "Millions of dollars have been raised by these activists groups under false pretenses, with the very real result of causing harm to animals.

On Compassionate Carnivores and Betrayal

Animal Person

However, the solution they have created, which harkens back to before industrialized agriculture, is simply to still raise animals for their flesh and secretions, and for profit, but to do it the old-fashioned way. And now I regret that because I realize there is simply no way to raise an animal with the intent to kill that animal and call it anything but betrayal.

While other people might trade barbs or even turn to fisticuffs, I'd dig deep for the most hurtful thing I could say, in the fewest words, and deliver it without even raising my voice. When I started blogging in May of 2006 I was very snarky. Snark defined blogging back then. And of course, as a (pop) culture whose sensibility has been formed by The Onion and The Daily Show , it's no wonder. My snarkiness increased, and turned into ranting, but then ranting for some reason got old.

I'm fairly sure that if I raise this topic it won't go over well, and outside of this issue there are no problems, but it's a big one for me. Here's the problem: A friend doesn't respect my veganism. My evidence? She jokes about it. She jokes about eating animals. And then I get this. Here's something to think about. I recently picked a new primary care doctor. After two visits and exhaustive lab tests, he said I was doing 'fairly well' for my age. (I I just turned 57.)
