Super article. So called “humane” alternatives to factory farms just perpetuate the belief that it is ok to eat animals…and in fact romanticize eating them! The rise of the excuse-itarian….

What a beautiful article. Self-hate is so destructive and so pointless! It’s so easy to forget that WE have the power to control our thoughts and feelings. LOVE YOURSELF BECAUSE YOU ARE YOU!
