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.

Repeating Myself

Reading this article, which seemingly tries to list every way any animal suffers, reminds me of the blog posts I've written before about how using big numbers hurts animals. (I'm also not a fan of titles that start by saying "We can't..." when we very clearly can.)

More importantly, when we list and demand basically everything, the only response will be vegans liking and retweeting. Meanwhile:

This is why, to be a broken record*, I still argue for harm-reduction advocacy.

*I'm hoping that the Amazon show The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel will make more people aware of records.   :-)
