About the author

Matt is the author, co-author, secondary-author, ghost-author, and non-author of articles, speeches, book chapters, and even entire books! The most recent is his blockbuster The Accidental Activist, which Amazon claims is by his wife Anne Green. So it goes. Currently, he is President of One Step for Animals; previously, he was shitcanned from so many nonprofits that we can’t list them all here. Before Matt’s unfortunate encounter with activism, he was an aerospace engineer who wanted to work for NASA (to impress Carl Sagan). His hobbies include photography, almost dying, and {REDACTED}. He lives in Tucson with Anne, along with no dogs, no cats, no guinea pigs, and only the occasional snake or scorpion.

"Are u for or against veganism"

My favorite exchange from the storm brought about by suggesting we shouldn't scream at people:

YP: Are u for or against veganism
I'm really confused now I'm sorry honestly

MB: That is a great question.
I am pro-animal and anti-cruelty and suffering.
Given the public's opinion of "vegan" and "veganism" (as documented here in How Vegans Hurt Animals), I am entirely convinced that animals would be much better off if, at least in the US, we abolished the word "vegan," and only chose to talk in terms of animals and consequences.

YP: Matt Ball thank u for explaining
I agree with you now in what your saying completely
