    Horse dillemma

    So, you remember that one horse obsessed girl that every elementary school ever had? Thats me. Ive been head over heals for them my entire life. Have a million horse books, a breyer model horse collection, and I owned a horse right up until I had to go to college and donated him to a charity...

    Dilemma about an antique brass birdcage

    I am sad to say that my mother loved to keep singing canaries in our house in the 60s and 70s. Initially they were in a larger bamboo cage but then she found an antique brass cage that is no larger than 15 by 15 inches and kept a bird in that. After her last bird died she saved the cage and...

    Hesitant to eat anything

    Recently I've been in phases where don't buy anything to eat at all and am in one such phase now. If anything causes more harm to animals than another food, then I want to eat the food that causes the least harm. The thing is I don't know what food does cause the least harm. I had figured at...

    Disagreements with non-vegan sibling

    My brother, who is three years younger than me (I am a teenager), seems to be very close-minded when it comes to the reasons for being an ethical vegan. He doesn't understand how the milk, egg, honey, etc. industries are cruel and often asks me why, so I give him a logical and clear explanation...

    Survey Empathy survey - who are more empathetic vegan or meat-eaters?

    Howdy! I am conducting a survey where I look into the relationship between diet and empathy. Currently, there are a few studies on this topic, but they often have a small sample size, my hope is to get many participants as possible, so please do complete it! If you have ever wondered whether...

    Outlet store products?

    I have no problem buying wool etc from thrift or antique stores, as none of the money goes to the original company and I am not creating more need for that animal product - is the same true for outlet stores? Do the items you buy create a demand for that specific animal product like it does...

    Mussels?

    Mussels are not sentient. Would you have a problem with someone eating them and still calling themselves vegan? Sure, technically they are animals, but I'm more concerned with ethics than specifics. They have minimal to no affect on the environment when harvesting. My morals and standards still...

    Two months vegan, and totally disappointed by the vegan on vegan war

    There are too many vegan vs. vegan fights, vegans hating on vegetarians, raw vegans hating on vegans and on top of everything the never ending plethora of people that hate vegans just because... What is happening? Has this always been this way? Vegans with big social media presence spewing...

    Lions shot in Chile - man entered deliberately

    So this raises interesting ethical issues. See this BBC article: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-latin-america-36352593 A young man in Chile forcefully entered a lion pen, then stripped down, at a zoo in an apparent suicide bid. Zookeepers shot dead the two lions that were on the attack...

    Question about ethics

    Sorry if this sounds like a dumb question, but I've been unable to find an actual perspective on this issue. Is it ethical to watch films and Tv programmes that feature things like the use of meat and fur? I ask this because I am a Game of Thrones fan and wondered if I am contributing to animal...
