Abolitionist Advocates, CyberBullying, and The Abolitionist Vegan Movement

Cyberbullying part 2 VTrove
Definition:  “CyberBullying is an action of harming or harassing via information technology networks in a repeated and deliberate manner.”

Cyberbullying is new and gaining momentum. Bullying occurs in person, and the victim knows who the bully is.  Cyberbullying is done through anonymous attacks towards the victim. Cyberbullying can take place on any electronic device such as, a computer or cell phone. It can also take place on bulletin boards where the bully posts believable false messages about the victim.”

This episode 25 (as was Ep 24) is for a specific audience, so if you have not been involved in the abolitionist vegan movement, you might want to skip this one as well. Once again my apologies for the length of this podcast, but I thought if I am going to be specific about these issues and properly address them, I may as well be thorough.

This episode talks specifically about ongoing clandestine targeting campaigns and cyberbullying (and my experience of this as a target) against abolitionists by abolitionists in the abolitionist vegan movement and why it should not be supported and suggestions on what we each need to do to create a supportive and healthy future grassroots movement.

Here are the various pages and sites I have created and / or own. Abolitionist Vegan Resources (a page I started a year ago), Vegan Trove (Facebook home of my podcast), LiveVegan (my first abolitionist page I started in July 2009 which has been adversely affected by Facebook algorithms.), Vegans for Nonviolence ( a mostly human social justice page), and Muslim Lives Matter (a Facebook page highlighting anti-Muslim racism/ Islamophobia, VeganTrove.com (my podcast) and VeganismIsNonviolence.com (my blog) and MuslimLivesMatter.info ( my other podcast). They are all the pages of mine that I currently use. Please check them out.

Disclaimer:  Please note,  this episode is not an invitation to  vilify anyone (privately or publicly), or to engage in ad hominem attacks on anyone. Nor is it an invitation to get into any arguments. If this takes place as a result of this episode being shared anywhere, I completely reject that behaviour and I ask people to please not engage in it. Thanks for your consideration.

Can I Bully You Into Adopting My Viewpoint?

Educate or Bully?Is publicly humiliating people on our social media pages in our vegan education efforts helpful or a counterproductive? I speak about this prevalence of this on social media in relation to abolitionist vegan education as well as related issues including claims by a small few that it is racist to promote veganism for the animals.

There’s new trend of rescue animal sanctuaries selling animal products from their refugees of domestication to the nonvegan public, thus reinforcing the public’s nonveganism. I discuss this and also the interrelatedness of all forms of discrimination which are just faces of the same ignorance.

VT Podcast Ep 4: Our Attitude to Those Who Are Vulnerable

In this podcast I take a look at the problems with single issue campaigns by discussing Sea Shepherd and their anti-whaling campaigns and the unsurprising announcement by Japan to commence whale hunting again in 2015.  I speak generally about the problems within the abolitionist movement and a have a suggestion.  I speak about our fetishising of certain animals and in this case, Tasmanian Devils and a decision in Australia to introduce them on to the mainland and how our interference might not only adversely effect Devils but other animals around them. I look at insects and our behaviour toward insects. I look our violence toward insects and how our attitudes toward insects are extended to other parts of our lives. I speak about a new social media platform Tsu and my new page I’ve started on there as an alternative to Facebook.
