🐏🐑😡*BREAKING* 😡🐑🐏
I’m furious! A 9th major investigation into the wool industry by @peta was just released. This time 24 #Scottish #wool shearing operations and farms were visited. Similarly to all of the previous 8 investigations of 72 sheep operations in the USA, Australia, Argentina, England and Chile — workers were documented beating, stamping on, kicking, mutilating, and throwing sheep around. THESE ARE STANDARD INDUSTRY PRACTICES. How many more investigations do we need where the industry is “shocked and saddened” by workers violently slamming sheep’s heads in gate doors, punching them in the face, throwing them to the floor, standing in their necks and abdomens, gashing them with shears, and sometimes even skinning them alive to convince the fashion world (especially the “#ecofashion” world, that the wool industry is ruthless and corrupt? Do not buy wool! Do not design with wool. It isn’t eco-friendly (there are 1 billion sheep on the planet bred mostly for wool gobbling up vast energy and resources and emitting massive amounts of methane) and it certainly isn’t just a friendly haircut. .

When not crammed into tiny cages or packed into “free-range” sheds, these birds‘ individual personalities really shine. Friendly, funny, playful, cuddly, mischievous - they’re a lot like the animals we typically consider to be family.

My interview about #biofabrication aired on @newshour @pbs this evening alongside @modernmeadow @biocouture & @boltthreads. Imagine a future where #leather is grown in a laboratory to precise design specifications without the massive ethical or environmental impacts of killing #animals for their skins and with much better profit margins. It’s real and it’s coming! .

It’s my first time at @tamerlainefarm. The #animal residents, like Toy here, have all been rescued from bad situations, and these lucky few get to live out their lives here in a #sanctuary protected from a larger culture that treats them like commodities. Visit if you can, and donate! 📷 @leannemaily #rescue #horse #vegan

Today on thediscerningbrute.com: @theshaunflores: “Too many linear, deterministic lines lock men into crazy expectations of what it is to be a man today. Society has changed and we are evolving. My dad died when I was six years old on Christmas day. Growing up in the black community, I had to discover what it meant to be my own man. The belief that a man must be this and that is toxic and it puts pressure on men when the world has changed so much. We need to explore new types of masculinity as there is not one type that fits all. I am vegan, and a core tenant of my existence is simply being an example to other young men in the world. We have so much power, our identities should be malleable — after all we either make this world more harmonious or filled with strife.”
