About the author

I am the author, co-author, secondary-author, ghost-author, and non-author of articles, speeches, book chapters, and even entire books! The most recent can be found at LosingMyReligions.net. Currently, I am President of One Step for Animals; previously, I was shitcanned from so many nonprofits that we can’t list them all here. Before my unfortunate encounter with activism, I was an aerospace engineer who wanted to work for NASA (to impress Carl Sagan). My hobbies include photography, almost dying, and {REDACTED}. I live in Tucson with my soulmate and reluctant editor Anne, along with the occasional snake and scorpion.

Ginny for the Win!!!


Don't refer to cruelty-free Thanksgiving dishes as the "healthy alternative." People know plants are good for you. They need two know they are yummy & celebratory!

This reminds me of the most recent post on havegonevegan's blog that I read yesterday. Here is an excerpt (not that it's a long read or anything):

"...maybe what vegans need to become better known for is what we say yes to. Instead of being equated with deprivation and restriction, veganism might expand more if it was associated with something that's joyful and celebratory.

Maybe we need to become less No people and more Yes people. Maybe being vegan, and even veganism itself, needs to be more fun. And maybe we need to embrace and recreate a truly inclusive veganism that better reflects that."

I have to admit that was the first time I think I've ever seen "fun" and "vegan" in the same sentence. :)
