Cheese: The Other White Meat (why cheese eaters are problematic for vegans)

If you are a vegetarian, and would like to be vegan, my question for you is… what are you waiting for?

Vegetarians know the reality of where there food comes from – or rather WHO their food use to be, and it does not seem to bother them.

A lot of vegans, probably have at some point meet someone who says that they are “almost vegan” or “90% vegan – except for cheese”, or,

They may say something like – “oh I could Never be vegan, I love cheese too much” or maybe they do actually call themselves Vegan, yet has an occasional slip up, if they are at a party, and someone offers them some cheese, then they might “cheat” on their vegan diet

I met a “vegan” recently, who lectured me about how I was a “fake vegan” because I didn’t hate on ALF – animal liberation front – yet, this same person didn’t know that their morning protein shake made with whey wasn’t actually vegan.

Oh how I laughed!

Dairy is not benign, dairy involves huge amounts of cruelty and exploitation and DEATH.

And then these cheese-eaters pat themselves on the back, thinking that Vegan is just a different form of Vegetarian. I mean, we all love animals, right? It’s not like the animal has to DIE or anything, right?

Oh, but I never buy cheese myself! they protest. If someone offers it to me, or there is a pizza, or I’m hungry, or [insert excuse here]. That would be like someone saying “oh but I don’t smoke, I never buy cigarettes myself, I mean, if someone offers me one, or I get them off a friend when I’m at the pub after a late night, but, no, I’m not a smoker or anything”.

How is this any different? Just because you don’t buy it, does that mean it stops being cheese?

Here is my opinion… You know those old sayings “Milk – is liquid Meat” or “There is veal floating invisibly in every bottle of milk” or “Meat is murder, milk is rape” … vegans (by that I mean actual vegans, not faux cheeseatarian vegans) chose to not consume dairy in all its forms, because…

nothing could taste so good that it justifies rape and torture and slavery and murder.

That is what it comes down to:

If you consume dairy this is what you support

This PeTA video, shows the reality of the Land O’ Lakes dairy factory in Pennsylvania USA.

This is not an exception.

And don’t kid yourself – if you consume dairy products, and you haven’t personally met the cow, there is a very good chance that what you are eating came from cows just like this portrayed in the video.

And just why is that cow generously giving us her milk? Well she isn’t. Milk is meant for baby cows… it is baby food, for HER babies.

Like any mammal, she produces milk only to feed her babies.

Which means, she is forced to become pregnant against her will in order to create the baby that will get her body producing the milk.

And if people are stealing her milk (the cow doesn’t GIVE away anything), then there are babies out there, that are not drinking it.

So, what happens to those baby cows, which are surplus to requirements – if they survive the high infant mortality rate, they get sold into slavery, and become either milk cows or veal calves or pet food.

Pet food? Seriously, imagine telling that to a baby – your life is nothing, you are worth more to me dead.

or, Some may be shipped off to cosmetics companies to be turned into face creams or diet pills, because in some markets, it is illegal to use cows that are older than 30-months old in order to reduce the risk of spreading Mad Cow Disease (BSE – bovine spongiform encephalopathy).

Beauty products that are stuffed full with animal products are not beautiful. Nope, I do not want to be slapping dead calf on my face.

And this is a side effect of societies cheese-addiction.

Not much of a life, is it?

Then, what happens when the dairy cow gets too old?

After years of slavery, of being treated like a machine….

Cows that have been bred for maximum milk production, are unable to sustain the weight of their udders, which may be infected with mastitis, then what?

Is there a pension plan, and she goes off to a farm in the country to wander the hills and pastures and frolic in the clover… hell no, if she survives a couple of years of relentless torture in the dairy factory, she is shipped off to slaughter as soon as the milk production begins to slow up.

Thanks for the all milk, my dear, and don’t let the barn door hit you on the way out.

And then there is RENNET
Unless the label states “non animal rennet” – that cheese the vegan is eating, it isn’t even vegetarian.

Rennet is an enzyme used in cheese making, that is naturally present in the stomach of calves in order to digest the milk they are drinking.

Animal Rennet is taken from the lining of calves stomachs, and is often a by-product of the veal industry.

So when Vegetarians justify their continued animal consumption because “the animal doesn’t have to die”, What exactly do they mean? The baby cows that don’t survive to adulthood, the veal calves, the petfood calves or the cosmetics calves, the sick and dying milk cows, the retired cows who are sent to slaughter at 4 or 5 years old instead of well into their 20s which is the natural life expectancy of a cow.


This isn’t even going to go near the substances actually in the milk – pus, blood, leukemia cells, bovine growth hormone, anti-biotics, pesticides, herbicides, possibility of BSE prions, excessive amounts of protein and lots and lots of saturated fat.

Cheese eaters – what is the difference between that and eating meat for all the misery the production of milk entails.

And don’t get me started on vegans who eat HONEY……

The Myth Of Humane Meat

The Myth of Humane Meat
A video I created, not just uploaded to YT.

Former vegans and vegetarians use the concept of humane meat and welfare standards to continue to consume animals. The word animal by-product to describe milk and eggs is shown to also contribute to cruelty and exploitation. Features extreme graphic images of how animals become food. People who eat meat are entitled to know who their food used to be.

Taking one food as an example – the classic burger, this clip shows that for animals, it is not humane.

Vegan Disaster Planning (plus food ideas)

Heavy rain and high tide causing flooding of R...

Image via Wikipedia

There have been some disasters and emergency situations in the media recently, between the earthquakes in New Zealand and floods in Victoria, Australia, as well as around the world, bushfires in Russia and floods in Pakistan, that have inundated much of that country, and before that earthquake in Haiti, storms in the Gulf coast of America… I thought I would look at the Disaster planning, especially in terms of being vegan.

Having been evacuated twice in recent years during bushfires, this is every day reality, and not build-a-bunker, form-a-militia survivalism, just things to consider during emergencies. Also useful information for road-trips, camping, and electricity black-outs.

And, one more useful (non-vegan) tip, if you are evacuated – take the door keys so you can get back in.

Standard Emergency Planning /  Disaster Kits

* USA Government FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) (204page booklet)

* Red Cross Disaster Supplies Kit (has a good section on pets, page4)

* Emergency Management NSW: Pets and Livestock

* Emergency Management NSW: Emergency kit

While much of the information covered by the standard “disaster kits” can apply equally to vegans or omnivores, there are some things to consider for vegans, apart from all the information listed in the official guides

work gloves: especially if for work outside the house, such as clearing fallen trees, or home repairs, suggestions are often for “leather gloves”

first aid kits: may contain OTC (over the counter) medications and treatments that have been tested on animals or from companies that test on animals

blankets: may be woolen blankets, prepare with non-wool alternatives

fishing kits: often a staple of disaster kits are useless in a vegan emergency

candles and matches: some candles are made out of tallow and matches are made from animal products

personal care and hygiene products: may contain animal products, be tested on animals, or come from companies that test on animals

animals: food, water, medication, all animals need a carrier, shelters may not take animals (when moving animals in a vehicle the key points to remember are keep them warm, dark and quiet)

flash drive, computer back-up: vegans that own blogs or social network sites, be prepared to hand over to someone else, and store your graphics and files that may have taken many years to collect. Include copies of log ins that might be saved on a computer or have auto-log in. Store in a water-proof container.

food should also last without refrigeration, be prepared with minimal or no cooking and be portable

* Disaster Planning for Vegetarians, by Reed Mangels, PhD, RD

* Vegetarian Survival Kit

* Carnivores Attack Vegans in Response To Vegetarian Survival Kit Article

– include any B12 supplementation

  • Canned fruit in juice, that can be eaten in one meal, there might not be options for storing left overs, and juice provides extra fluid
  • Canned beans
  • Grain/dried fruit bars (such as muesli or power bars) are now available with vegan selections
  • Dried fruit
  • Nuts
  • plained Rolled oats or Muesli mix, made with fruit and nuts; does not require cooking, add long-life soy milk
  • Crackers, Corn chips or crisps chips, extra salt may make require extra water
  • Canned corn, Canned baby potatoes or other Vegetables
  • Canned spaghetti, check for ingredients
  • UHT (ultra heat treated, long life) soy milk, plain or flavoured
  • Peanut butter, nut butter
  • Fruit jam, in small jars (short shelf life if unrefrigerated)
  • Vegan chocolate
  • Biscuits, Cookies
  • Seasonings, (jar or tin) powdered stock, pepper, chilli, soy sauce
  • Single serves mustard, chilli sauce, tomato sauce, peanut-butter (eg, find a friend in catering or hospitality industry)
  • Cocoa (pre mix with dry sweetener), Tea, Herbal Tea, Coffee
  • plus, Water

This is not advice, not meant to replace official information, just things for vegans to consider.

Alicia Silverstone goes Vegetarian

Hollywood nice girl, Alicia Silverstone, author of “The Kind Diet” goes vegetarian.

Yah, the Vegan / Vegetarian community has another role model to inspire and delight. Hollywood actress Alicia Silverstone, of Clueless fame, and also author of “The Kind Diet” has made the leap to vegetarian.

A good role model for people who are wanting to make the transition from omnivore to vegetarian. There by showing that vegetarian is not an extreme diet, and vegetarian options are everywhere.

Going vegetarian is so easy, every meat eater should try it… and then go vegan.

*Alicia Silverstone’s use of the word flirt has a specific meaning: “Flirting” (going meatless and dairy-free when you can)

Is McDonalds the most evil corporation on the planet?

disclaimer: I am vegan, I haven’t stepped inside a McDonald’s for any reason, since I was 15 and saw a documentary in Economics class detailing the destruction of the Amazon rain forest for hamburgers.

However, I overheard some parents recently talking about how their pre-school kids prefer to eat hamburgers and not their vegetables, and how they were getting so chubby.

One of the mothers said, she was also putting on weight because she was eating the junk food too, but it was easier to give in to their kids than fight it. Then one of the parents added, “yeah, McDonalds are so evil”.

But are they really one of the most evil food producers? McDonalds are selling a product that people buy. They are supplying to meet a need (or ‘want’). This is why they have inspired so many rivals.

Are they selling a product which can kill people? Yes. Are they selling a product that does kill BILLIONS of animals. Hell yes. Is the Amazon rainforest being chopped down to make cattle ranches? Yes (may or may not be McDonalds doing it)

If the true cost of a hamburger was reflected in the charge to consumers it would sell for about $100. The pollution, chemical waste, health care costs, environmental degradation, and subsidies of farming from governments, none of these factors are considered in the retail cost.

They do these things because they can. Because it is not illegal, because people continue to buy their product. What ever problems society has with them is a reflection of that society and not a company who is in business to make a profit.

Critics are outspoken about McDonalds in particular, rather than focusing on fast-food in general, with websites Anti Mcdonalds Website, Why McDonalds is an Evil Corporation, McSpotlight, multi-million pound court cases sueing critics in the McLibel case, and movies such as .

There was a big controversy recently in New Zealand when Weight-Watchers (TM) teamed up with McDonalds to add the Weight-Watchers logo to select items to the menu. And in return Weight-Watchers will promote McDonalds. But Weight-Watchers (TM) food is so full of artificial low fat, fake sugar additives anyway, they seem like perfect partners to me.

But why are animal welfare groups getting upset that they treat the animals badly? They sell dead bodies and all you care about the size of the cages or slaughtering methods?

Why are parents getting upset that their kids fill up on junk food and not vegetables? There must a reason why they do it.

Why are health officials upset at the levels of saturated fats, salt, sugar, etc in the food? McDonalds sell what they are legally allowed to. In the US President Obama wanted to crack down on the level of salt in food and Glen Beck and other talking heads acted like it was the coming of the Fourth Reich.

Why are busy working parents, on low incomes feeding their family this pretend food? Because healthy food isn’t always, fast, cheap or available, and fast food requires no arguments over who cleans up.

Why do more 3 year-olds recognise the McDonalds golden M symbol than their own name? Is this really McDonalds problem, or a problem with when the legislators allow junk food to be advertised to children? and the parents who feed their children junk.

McDonalds – and fast food corporations like it – are symptoms. They show us what is wrong with the nutritional information available, and the healthy alternative messages not getting out, animal liberation allowing the animal debate to be dominated by welfarists, lack of information about healthy, fast, cheap alternatives, access to nutritious alternatives. What ever problems we have with them and their rivals – from labour practices, to environmental destruction, to animal welfare issues, the ads and toy products aimed at very young children, or even just the food itself – this is what we (as a society) have allowed to happen.

And if we don’t like it, what are we doing besides complaining about it.

…. And in terms of what it is doing to our kids health, At least it’s not a KFC Double-Down – that’s a whole other story.

Let’s pity the hard life of a vegetarian

Guest post: Del

I’m talking “ethical vegetarians”, if you are vegetarian for religious, health, taste, weight-loss, family or economic reasons or whatever your reason is, I admire the difficult stand you take in a world dominated by the meat and dairy industries. Eating less meat for whatever reason, you are doing a wonderful thing.

However, Reading a lot of vegetarian online blogs recently, and what gets me is how they think they have a “lifestyle”, how tough life is for them, with lots of people offering advice on how to “survive a vegetarian emergency” or how to travel as a vegetarian, how to survive a dinner with a meat eater … All I can say is W-T-F?

How hard is to take the meat off your plate. Because that is the only change to a life. If you say you are vegetarian “for the animals” but that is the only change you make to life, taking the meat off your plate, without taking a closer look at the battery chickens that produce your eggs, the sheep that produce your wool or slaughtered to produce your Ugg boots, or veritable Noah’s Ark of animals slaughtered to produce leather, or the absolute sadism involved in milk.

If someone says they are vegetarian for the animals, they must know that animals suffer for their food, clothes, personal care products, and so many other products, then why not take the next step. Life isn’t hard, you’re barely making any changes at all.

You’re a vegetarian not a vegan, take the meat out! How hard is that?

How complicated is to take a moral stand on the ethics of eating animals when the daily life of a dairy cow is insanely more cruel than for beef cattle.

I know that I hate the “corpse-muncher” comments, and believe there is a more effective way to get people to change their diets, away from death-for-profit eggs, dairy and meat, let’s just stop with the whining about how hard life is as an ethical vegetarian. While I admire your stance regarding the eating of meat, take the next step.


Narrated by the gorgeous Alec Baldwin


If you are an “ethical vegetarian” and can watch this all the way through, and still want to drink your dairy milk, let’s talk.

Is Vegan Enough? Food that oppresses people

Since 8 May is both World Fair Trade Day and International Boycott Proctor & Gamble Day, I thought I would take a quick look at an issue that combines both those topics.

Thinking about the people who produce the food we consume, can change the way we look at it. It is not just a one more consumer product, it can be someone’s life.

Taking a look at one product, Coffee, which is vegan, but is it good for people, Third World (* ) communities or the environment. And if it is bad for the environment, it isn’t good for animals.

How does Fair Trade coffee relate to P&G, one of the largest producers of consumer products, cleaning products, personal care products, and pseudo-chip-in-a-can products….?

Four companies – Nestlé, Procter & Gamble, Kraft and Sara Lee purchase over 40% of the world’s coffee beans, which gives them a large control of the industry. Dictating terms and conditions. These companies are also involved in animal experimentation and cruelty to animals via their dairy and meat products. These four big multinationals get to set the prices paid for the raw coffee beans to over 20 million sellers, forcing the prices down, and paying as little as possible.

And when farmers and communities are not getting a living wage from their crops, this leads to an increasing vicious cycle of local poverty, deforestation to grow more crops, habitat and biodiversity destruction and national debt.

Third World poverty – forced by the World Bank to grow crops for exports to pay back exorbitant debts, often racked up by despots but paid back by peasants. Coffee, tea, sugar, cocoa, when many poor countries are producing these “staples” the price for these commodities drops. These countries are making less and less, but growing these crops is often a condition of their loans. For whose benefit is this? These are not crops the local people can live on. Yes they might be vegan, but the human suffering is huge. The environmental devastation via massive land clearing and monoculture crops is also huge.

The leading coffee producers and exporters in order

Brazil, Vietnam, Colombia ,Indonesia, Ethiopia, India, Mexico, Guatemala, Peru, Honduras, Uganda, Ivory Coast, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Papua New Guinea, Ecuador, Thailand, Tanzania, Dominican Republic, Kenya, Venezuela, Cameroon, Philippines, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Central African Republic, Burundi, Madagascar, Haiti, Rwanda, Guinea, Cuba, Togo, Bolivia, Zambia, Angola, Panama, Zimbabwe, Nigeria, Ghana, Jamaica, Sri Lanka, Malawi

With some exceptions, such as Brazil and India, these countries are among the poorest in the world. The local populations often live in intense poverty.

Absent from the list are first world countries.

Zimbabwe is the number one poorest country in the world, yet it is one of the worlds largest exporters of coffee. Also in the top 10 poorest countries of the world and the top coffee producers/exports are Democratic Republic of the Congo (2nd), Burundi (3rd), Central African Republic (7th).

Kinder Gentler Nation

51 percent of Guatemalans live in poverty. 15 percent live in extreme poverty, meaning they don’t have enough money to put food on their tables on a daily basis.

The World Bank, does not represent the world, is it dominated by the UK and USA, represents the interests of the richest countries in the world. Third world nations become the farm and quarry of the First world.

This informative article from the conservative think-tank the Cato Institute, point out how the world bank is crushing their world countries – The World Bank Vs. the World Poorby James Bovard

The World Bank is helping Third World governments cripple their economies, maul their environments, and oppress their people. … The bank’s handouts to governments for agricultural projects often work out badly. One of the bank’s West African projects to promote coffee and cacao production failed partly because of “soil unsuitability.” The bank encouraged farmers to grow crops that were unsuited for their soil. With friends like the World Bank, African farmers don’t need enemies.

The pursuit of profits in coffee cultivation is causing catastrophes for local farmers and communities, deforestation, and land degradation. None of which are good for animals.

Then comes the addition of milk and sugar….

* or the more common term today being “developing” countries, but I question whether countries like Zimbabwe are developing or if they are going backwards. the other term favoured is ‘Global South’, meaning the poorest countries of the world – ha! take that Australia and New Zealand

Agri-colonisation is an issue covered here: Sugar Shortage – Marion Nestle and G20 countries practice ‘agri-colonialism’ in developing countries from a different perspective.

Some great articles that touch on these issues:

Futile Democracy: The guinea-pig Nation

According to Waldon Bello, a senior analyst at “Focus on the Global South”, a program of Chulalongkorn University’s Social Research Institute:

“At the time of decolonization in the 1960s, Africa was not just self-sufficient in food but was actually a net food exporter, its exports averaging 1.3 million tons a year between 1966-70. Today, the continent imports 25% of its food, with almost every country being a net food importer. Hunger and famine have become recurrent phenomena, with the last three years alone seeing food emergencies break out in the Horn of Africa, the Sahel, Southern Africa, and Central Africa.

Morgan Spurlock’s expose on McDonalds as an example of Fast Food restaurants which have contributed to USAmerica becoming one of The most obese nations on earth.

Receiving an Academy Award nomination for this 2004 documentary which follows the film maker for 30-days during Febuary 2003 which he ate Only McDonalds food. He gave himself the following rules, eat only McDonalds, eat only products on the menu, eat three meals a day, consuming every item at least once, And, if offered the option to supersize, he took it. This documentary follows his journey and the impact of this diet on his lifestyle and health, both mental and physical.

He consumed an average of 5,000 calories (the equivalent of 9.26 Big Macs) per day during the experiment.

Ice-cream is non-patriarchal

Icecream is nonpatriarchal. Ice cream, frozen yogurt, milk-shakes– every dairy product we can think of is the exclusive product of females. So, okay, they’re cows… But eating this stuff can be a political act that neatly unities feminist principles with a love of animals… Fuck the vegans, I say. Anyone who doesn’t eat ice cream for purely “ethical” reasons is a killjoy and a moron and ultimately not to be trusted. Pro-ice cream is pro-woman”
Kiss My Tiara: How to Rule the World as a SmartMouth Goddess – Sarah Jane Gilman, p25

Dairy is very much a feminist issue


From the treatment of the female animals enslaved to produce it, to the women consumers of this product, and the way it is sold to mothers by playing on their guilt to overdose their children on dairy.

Which, I think has to be seriously, one of the most moronic statements I have ever seen in print regarding dairy and feminism. The SINGLE most effective thing that got me to go from vegetarian to vegan was the two sayings “There is veal invisibly floating in every glass of milk” and “Meat is Murder, Milk is Rape”, and if anyone looks at where milk comes from, and the conditions of the cows, there is no way they could claim it to be a feminist act. And if this author saw the condition of dairy cows, there is no way she could claim to love animals.

Quite apart from the fact, that unless the person gets their milk from a farmer who they know, and who happens to be female, milk isn’t the “product of females” it is the product of large corporations, with a board of directors most likely made up almost exclusively of men, whose first priority is to make money. It is not your health and it is not the welfare of the cows or the consumers. No. They will do whatever it takes to make as much money as possible.

Cows, like all mammals (including people), produce milk to feed their babies, so in order for the cow to produce milk, she has to have a baby. In order to get the cow pregnant, she is continuously raped (sex without consent). And, because the milk corporations do not want to share that milk with a calf, the babies are removed from their mothers, the females to become dairy cows and the males to become veal.

And regardless whether that dairy is organic, or factory farm, the male babies are surplus to requirements, and sent to packing plants (“slaughterhouse”). Because no farmer (few if any), no matter how much they claim to love their animals would spend the money to raise and animal that is unable to make profit.

So, what part of being raped, and having your baby stolen and slaughters sounds feminist?

How does rape and slaughter of babies promote the sisterhood?

The body leeches calcium out of bones to the blood stream in order to neutralise excessive protein. Where does protein come from – animal products. So milk is sold to women as a cure for a disease that has a devastating effect on women more than men, especially post menopausal women – that being osteoporosis. Yet, too many animal products can be a large contributor to the osteoporosis. But do large corporations care about womens’ health? It doesn’t seem that way, not as long as they are selling a product to women whose only nutritional information comes from dairy and meat industry propaganda.

It’s not about whether people and animals are the same, but are their Rights the same. Any living thing is as entitled to the most basic right of all, the right to live a life, especially without suffering.

Dairy is the very essence of imposing of patriarchal values – if you want it, take it.

So, GOT MILK? Got rape, veal, cruelty, suffering, apathy, patriarchy, damaged health, animal cruelty, toxic environment, disease and death?

Slaughter and justice cannot dwell together

Isaac Bashevis Singer: Slaughter and justice cannot dwell together.

The author, Isaac Bashevis Singer, wrote in The Letter Writer:

“In his thoughts, Herman spoke a eulogy for the mouse who had shared a portion of her life with him and who, because of him, had left this earth. “What do they know – all these scholars, all these philosophers, all the leaders of the world – about such as you? They have convinced themselves that man, the worst transgressor of all the species, is the crown of creation. All other creatures were created merely to provide him with food, pelts, to be tormented, exterminated. In relation to them, all people are Nazis; for the animals it is an eternal Treblinka.”

Sometimes, when people here the Nazi / Animal Cruelty comparison, they think that Animal Rights people are going to far… however, Singer knew what he was talking about, as a Jewish person who fled Nazi Germany.

A life is a life, regardless of what the body looks like, as a vegan I would no more eat the corpse of a person or drink another woman’s breast milk… and yet, consuming animal products is normal to most of the world.

Time to see animals for what they are, independent beings that are alive, and not walking food… which someone put a price on their dead body, rather than a value on their life.
