Anonymous asked: Being vegan isn't cheap, and it won't cure hunger and that's a fact. There's enough good for everyone, it's just unevenly distributed, that's why people in africa are hungry. Vegans don't change anythibg
Explain that to the 4 million people on this planet who live on an almost exclusively-vegan diet due to poverty. The amount of vegetable protein fed to the US beef herd would feed almost the entire populations of India and China. Most of the UK’s animal feed protein concentrates come from poor countries – often those where children die from starvation. If Britain went vegetarian less than half the farm land would be needed; vegan, less than a quarter. It is estimated that 40 million tonnes of grain would be needed to end world hunger. This sounds like a lot, but 540 million tonnes of grain are fed to animals in the West.
Meat and dairy are viewed as luxury items, because it takes so many resources to get such little back from the animal. For example, a single pound of beef uses up to 13 pounds of grain, and if you include the cooking processes and other things used to make that one pound of beef, it takes an incredible 2,400 gallons of water. For people who live in dire poverty and need to conserve as much food and clean water as possible, eating meat or other animal products simply does not make sense. The food and water used to feed one cow, and get little in return from them, can help feed a whole village. As a result cows and other farm animals are not slaughtered regularly, because they take up too many precious resources such as land space (which instead can be used to grow crops and feed more people), water, food and energy to care for them.
And Africa isn’t the only continent where people are suffering, starving, exploited and dying…
It’s funny that you guys say we don’t change anything, yet you feel the overwhelming need to come to our own blogs directly to tell us this. Clearly we’re making enough of an impact to have you waste your own precious time.

I once had a guy in my high school class slap my ass, then, my very young male teacher told him to never come to his class again for disrespecting a young woman (this was six months ago. i was 17). The teacher told me to stay after class so we could talk. He grabbed me and told me I should thank him a “nicer” way than with words. I fucking ran and could never look him in the eyes after that, needless to say, I failed his class.
