Veganism

 

Non-violent discussion/debate is welcome here, but I do not welcome personal attacks and teasing on my photostream! You can disagree, but please be civil about it!

 

---------------------------------------------------------------

Hi! I'm a 33-year-old vegan mom in Alberta, Canada. I love photography, drawing, painting, crafts, computers, video games, web design, graphic design, downhill skiing, music, anime, wood art, reading, and vegan cooking/baking. I believe in and promote respect for all sentient beings.

 

I have a husband and a daughter, and I also care for 3 adopted/rescued nonhuman family members in my home: Tifa (chinchilla), Neneko (chinchilla), and Jack (cat). I take a lot of photos of all of the family, as well as other animals, nature, vegan food, activism, events, and more. :)

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

No, I am not a PETA member. I get accused of this a lot. I am actually against PETA for many reasons. I am an abolitionist. I believe in animal rights and am against speciesism.

Vegan =/= PETA

She writes as well as she shoots.

Although I am not a vegan, I admire and respect Mel Mel for her courage of conviction. I also find her photostream most interesting, entertaining and sometimes educational. Thanks for allowing me and my wife a glimpse into your world, Mel Mel. And thanks for your Flickr friendship.

Vegan here has always great photos of exquisite Veg dishes and always brings out opinion in her photos. She obviously stands strong on all animal rights, and it is a great thing to see. She is a very open and friendly person.

Thank you for adding me as a contact! I just had to put one of these in here! Your sets on Cruelty-Free Foods definitely show off that Vegans don't just live off of nothing but beans! That food shows that Vegans can still stuff their faces with delicious healthy food and not look pale and unhealthy!

Thanks for adding me as a contact! Veg*anism is our next evolutionary step as a species, and it's people like us who are pushing for that evolution. I mean, what could be better than saving 95 lives per year simply by eating badass food that doesn't rot inside you? Nothing!

Thanks for the add vegan butterfly! Earthlings is an amazing movie that changed my life. FYI: the entire movie is veiwable on google movies. However, I strongly encourage everyone to buy a copy. The director is hoping to sell enough copies to fund getting it translated into more languages and can only do that if we buy it and show support. www.isawearthling... ~namaste.

I think the world would be a LOT better place if there were more Vegan Butterflies, and fewer butcher dickheads. Anyway she's cool and I love her pictures.
