Remember all of those GoDaddy ads that featured NASCAR driver Danica Patrick fake-stripping? PETA had no problem with those. Those were fine.

I Get Where ‘The Blonde Vegan’ Blogger Is Coming From, Because I Had Disordered Eating Gussied Up As Being “Vegetarian,” Too

The Soapbox: Why I’m Not Going To Stop Eating Meat

When I was 13, my 7th grade science class was assigned to dissect a fetal pig.  This made me massively uncomfortable. My teacher told us that we could opt out of doing the dissection and use approved online resources for the project instead if we wrote a convincing essay as to why we didn’t want…

Beyonce Is Just Trolling Vegans Now

Here’s my theory: this whole “going vegan for 22 days” thing was allllllll Jay Z’s idea and he swindled Beyonce into participating.

PETA Wants Teens To “Go All The Way”

Hey. Get your head out of the gutter! PETA means “go all the way vegan” instead of just vegetarian, obviously. Obviously. Is it really that obvious, though, when PETA’s new “Vegans Go All The Way” ad features Samia Najimy-Finnerty, who is just 16 years old?

Bon Iver’s Imagined Director’s Commentary For His Vegan Shoe Commercial

Y’all know I’m not a huge Bon Iver fan, and though he has wide acclaim as some sort of indie rock heartthrob, I find the idea of sexing Bon Iver to be as repugnant as, say, Frenching a trout. Last year, he unleashed his shoe collaboration with the shoe company Keep. What qualified Bon Iver…

Natalie Portman A Reformed Vegan

“I actually went back to being vegetarian when I became pregnant, just because I felt like I wanted that stuff. I was listening to my body to have eggs and dairy. If you’re not eating eggs, then you can’t have cookies or cake from regular bakeries, which can become a problem when that’s all you…
