Very excited to have written an essay for @scarcurtis’s new book #FeministsDontWearPink πŸ’—πŸ’˜ Writing is the thing I procrastinate the most but this project was so cool and intriguing with so many brilliant women that I managed to get thoughts out of my head onto paper :) The book is out in October and you can preorder it on amazon. In the meantime, make sure to follow @feminists to keep up with the book’s journey and meet some super cool ladies discussing their relationship to feminism.

Hello lovely peeps who also think fur sucks: now is a crucial time to make your voice heard and get fur banned in the UK!! 🚫Let’s support @HSIUKorg in calling for a #FurFreeBritain πŸ‡¬πŸ‡§On the 4th June, Parliament is debating a UK fur trade ban; this would save countless animals from spending their entire lives in tiny barren cages before being killed in some of the cruelest ways possible. Please write to your MP today and encourage them to support a ban πŸ™πŸ» You can do this using the form on HSI’s website HSI.org/FurFree (linked in my bio). Love y’all πŸ’•#HumaneSociety #BanFur

Does the forced perspective of this photo make us look mother and daughter-sized? Cos that’s what I was going for. πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ’šπŸ’›πŸ’›πŸ’›πŸ’›πŸ’šπŸ’—πŸ’–πŸˆ

Shoutout to my latest favourite vegan brand discovery @svalalove !! πŸ’•πŸ‘œ
I am so stoked there are more and more vegan brands showing that luxury and quality comprise high ethical standards, and NOT dead animal skins. I unabashedly love clothes and fashion as a means of self expression and beauty and a reflection of what I want to show the world. Aka. That is a hard pass on poor dead animals on my skin posing as fashion items, pls and thanks!! Check out @svalalove if you’re shopping around for a fancy luxurious new bag πŸ‘œπŸ”₯πŸ’œπŸŒ± #veganleather #veganfashion #vegansofig #SvalaLove #noanimalsharmed #compassionatefashion #Svala

Can we just do all cons together pls @_katieleung_ ? πŸ’˜

β€œThis is every single tourist elephant’s fate. The only reason they obey is with fear. They have been broken.”

I spent the past week in India with @thesun and STAE (Save The Asian Elephants) doing undercover investigations on the welfare of elephants. These pictures are courtesy of The Sun, STAE and there are a few I took also. Full article is linked in my bio.
.
What I’d most like people to understand is that there is no way to be in close proximity of an elephant used for tourism or entertainment, that hasn’t been brutally beaten. I used to always want to ride an elephant and I couldn’t understand what was bad about that - they seemed so gentle, so quiet, so at ease with human contact. What you don’t see is that each of these elephants has to be β€˜broken’ with sticks and cages and brutality in order to be so obedient. When not being used, they are chained up at the ankles, unable to move, unable to do anything and living in complete isolation. They don’t get to go home and comfort each other. These intelligent social animals all live in separate, private miserable worlds and they stand there swaying and beating their ears so hard, like wings that won’t take off. You can see a video I took of a traumatised elephant swaying here.
.
It’s not helpful to blame the people doing this to Elephants in India. I saw so much poverty and suffering among people there and it’s clear that animal welfare is low down the list of priorities. And frankly it’s ignorant to criticise these people when our own standards of animal welfare are so poor. I even had a moment with a mahout, who thought I was a tourist and tried so hard to make me happy by making an elephant do tricks. I tipped him and thanked him even though he beats elephants for a job. Cos he’s not the problem. The problem is the ignorance of western tourists patronising these cruel tourist ventures. We should know better. We are too privileged to overlook the suffering of these beautiful beasts.

Pls read the article in my bio to learn more and to help STAE make these unethical practices illegal for tourists to support. ❀️🐘
