It’s not ROMANTIC to FORCE horses to pull carriages, it’s CRUEL.
Horses inhale toxic fumes, develop painful ailments, and are subjected to DANGEROUS conditions like heavy traffic. http://peta2.me/2jl5i

Supermodel Karlie Kloss was photoshopped to look less thin for a Numero campaign. There are so many things wrong with this. Models are forced to be incredibly thin to fit a certain aesthetic, but when they do, they’re so emaciated that they have to be photoshopped to not look sick.Robin Hardy, a former creative director at Vogue, has commented on the practice of photoshopping to cover up the aesthetic and health costs of extreme thinness:
“At the time, when we pored over the raw images, creating the appearance of smooth flesh over protruding ribs, softening the look of collarbones that stuck out like coat hangers, adding curves to flat bottoms and cleavage to pigeon chests, we felt we were doing the right thing…
But now, I wonder. Because for all our retouching, it was still clear to the reader that these women were very, very thin. But, hey, they still looked great!
They had 22-inch waists (those were never made bigger), but they also had breasts and great skin. They had teeny tiny ankles and thin thighs, but they still had luscious hair and full cheeks.
Thanks to retouching, our readers… never saw the horrible, hungry downside of skinny. That these underweight girls didn’t look glamorous in the flesh. Their skeletal bodies, dull, thinning hair, spots and dark circles under their eyes were magicked away by technology, leaving only the allure of coltish limbs and Bambi eyes.”
These are just a couple things I have been thinking about recently and will be applying to my own activism.
Not only is it a false title, but using the term is just setting yourself up for disaster. We, as vegans, aren’t cruelty free we are cruelty…
Taking a wonder along the docks and came across a Buddhist family who bought 81 live crabs from the local fish market in order to save them. Spent half hour helping them put them back in the sea before heading off. Good work guys! #karma
