I Cannot See You

I cannot see you
A personal account of my own speciesism and I also talk about my personal experience as a vegan in relation to societal speciesism and our moral compartmentalisation.  When we are speciesist, and any of us are if we are eating, wearing and using animals, it’s like trying to look at animals through a fog. We see shapes, but we cannot see them as sentient moral persons. And sometimes, even when we have a moment when we are presented with a clear view, we refuse to see what is so very obvious.

Abolitionist: What’s in a Word; The Rebranding of TAVS.

TAVS rebranding

I generally try to ignore and avoid faction fighting because it’s energy draining and time consuming and is frequently personality based, but I decided to address some of the issues that have arisen from recent claims by a small few that the abolitionist movement is “rampantly racist”, “sexist” and “hostile to people of colour”. If you are not involved in the abolitionist community you may wish to skip this one.

I discuss the history of the term “abolitionist” and why it is not racist to use it in relation to veganism and why it is not appropriating the term if we look at history. I talk a little about overt and structural racism, credentialism and tokenism.  I ask the question, has the movement become more about the messenger than the message?

Please read my disclaimer about any pages, groups, sites, individuals, opinions, etc mentioned in this podcast episode or any episodes past and future.

Thanks to Vegan Ethos for her contributions relating to the history of abolition in particular.
