FALLACY: "Vegans Cannot Get Enough Iron"

Granted, human and non-human animals alike have heme-iron in their blood, but the salient point here is that we and they aren't manufacturing that iron internally: it comes from outside sources. While that source is ultimately non-animal-based, there are those who still insist -- against all evidence -- that vegans cannot get enough iron from a plant-based diet to maintain proper health.

These ideas are addressed further on the Your Vegan Fallacy Is site at yvfi.ca/iron/r along with responses by +Vegan Street, +Bite Size Vegan, +PlenteousVeg (i.e. +Diane Vukovic), +NutritionFacts.org, The Vegan Truth, and +Colleen Patrick-Goudreau.

It Just Keeps Getting Better!!

We're still adding content to the existing memes on yourveganfallacyis.com, and this week has been all about finding gems on +The Vegan Scholar​'s website. In addition to queuing up items for future fallacies, we've added articles to the existing Vegans Kill Animals Too (at yvfi.ca/veganskill/r) and Eating Meat Is My Personal Choice (at yvfi.ca/choice/r) fallacies.

If you're not following The Vegan Scholar yet, then you're missing out on some great articles! Find more at:

YourVeganFallacyIs.com Is Officially Launched!

This site is a resource for both vegans and pre-vegans for use in understanding and addressing common fallacies about veganism. There are presently only ten fallacies addressed on the site, but we're adding more and more over time. Over the next week or so we'll be adding some tweaks to the site, setting up translations, working on theming, etc., and after that we're planning on adding a new fallacy each week or so, time allowing.

Speaking of which, would you like to volunteer to be a translator? All we ask is that you be vegan yourself, and that you're a native speaker of the tongue you're translating to, and that you have some higher level formal education in that language. The reasons for this are that all the work on the site is by people who are themselves vegan (in order to preserve the focus of the site's message), and because we wish to ensure that the language on the site is grammatically correct for all languages. 

And this brings me to my favorite part of these sorts of messages: Praising people! We'd like to extend a very special thanks to +Constanze N. and +Hans J. for having diligently volunteered their time to create the German fallacy translations before launch, and to +Rózsa Farkas, who is presently contributing her considerable translation skills to complete the Hungarian set. +C.S. MacCath has been working very hard to edit the site's content, and she'll be continuing to do so for all the fallacies. Finally, a super huge thanks goes out to Riventear for creating the bulk of the site's graphics -- be sure to check out her work and support her at riventear.deviantart.com!

But translation work isn't the only way you can help! Do you engage in online advocacy yourself? Then you'll be happy to know that each fallacy on the site is accompanied by an easy to use short url; e.g. the fallacy that Eating Dairy Products Is Not Unethical can be accessed by yourveganfallacyis.com/eating-dairy-products-is-not-unethical or by the short url at yvfi.ca/dairy -- cool huh? This has been set up specifically to ease the use of the site. Further, each fallacy is accompanied by a set of resources (e.g. yvfi.ca/dairy/r) which may be useful for passing on to pre-vegans to help them commit to making the transition. The best part is that by linking people to the site you're not only helping them to understand the problems with their reasoning on that particular issue, but you're also exposing them to answers for all the other fallacies they may harbor! =o)

Which brings up another volunteering opportunity: would you like to help identify vegan resources to use? We're presently featuring work from folks like +Bite Size Vegan, +Colleen Patrick-Goudreau, +Vegan Street (and the Vegan Feminist Agitator), +C.S. MacCath (and her The Vegan Pagan blog series), +vegcomic.com, bizarro.com, theveganscholar.blogspot.ca, thevegantruth.blogspot.ca, and others -- but this is not enough, and we need your help to find more!! Each of these knowledge sources has more gems waiting to be linked to from YVFI.ca, and there are innumerable other vegan-centric projects we need to bring into the fold. If this is something that interests you, then we have a forum set specifically for discussing such things -- won't you join us there?

To volunteer, just create your account at yourveganfallacyis.com/user/register, verify your email, take a look at the site, and let us know what you'd like to do. =o)

Pagan Perspectives On Veganism

In this latest entry of the Vegan Pagan series of articles, +C.S. MacCath explores the connections between pantheism and our shared love of animals. Of note, each item in this collection delves in to the intersection of veganism and paganism, and the whole set is well worth a read.

WARNING: Some of the content in this particular post can be hard to read.

#csmblog #theveganpagan
This is the last full installment of The Vegan Pagan before I finish the series next month. I made the decision to post it last because I\'ve been a vegan activist long enough to know that many non-vegans expect the animal rights argument first, and many also don\'t realize there are other reasons for making the ethical choice I have. But while it was useful to place health, ecological and humanitarian arguments for veganism at the forefront of t...

Let's Make This AWESOME Together!

Are you the kind of person who actively promotes veganism and/or who likes the idea of doing so,  but just lacks the time to take meaningful action? Then this is your lucky day: There's a super-easy, very fast, and quite inexpensive thing you can engage which will make a real and tangible difference in the world.

As you can read and watch at the attached post, +Colleen Patrick-Goudreau is re-releasing her highly successful "The 30 Day Vegan Challenge", and it's available for "pre-ordering" right now (see the details at joyfulvegan.com/shop/the-30-day-vegan-challenge-new-edition). The big deal about pre-ordering is the effect that doing so has at the book's release date: Every one of the advance orders gets processed all on the same day when the book is released, and this creates a higher ranking for that book in various contexts. In turn, buzz is generated in all manner of venues far and wide about the release, which itself generates a lot more exposure and visibility.

In this case, all that buzz translates directly into promoting veganism in a organic and approachable way.

So - this is where you come in. Between now and the end of the year, let's all promote the heck out of this:

 • Do you have friends or family that are on the verge of going vegan? Pre-ordering this book for them would make a great gift!
 
 • Do you have a following on social media that you can promote this too? Getting the word out far and wide is the key to success on this one!
 
 • Are you engaged in conversations with folks about veganism? When they say they can't do it without help, offering this text is the go-to brilliant answer!
 
As for me, I've just ordered my copy of the text through the link above, and I'm presently drawing up plans to facilitate a 30 Day Vegan Challenge in mid-January to coordinate with the book release. 

What are you going to do to make this as awesome as it can possibly be? 

=oD

FALLACY: "Using Wool Is Not Unethical"

There are many who mistakenly believe that making wool is a normal and natural activity for sheep that they don't suffer or die from, so using wool isn't an ethical issue. Of course, the truth is far from this.

This idea is addressed on Your Vegan Fallacy Is at yvfi.ca/wool/r along with responses by +Bite Size Vegan, +Colleen Patrick-Goudreau, +Vegan Street, Skool of Vegan, and Vegan Sidekick. Is there more good stuff out there which should be on this page? If so, then let us know!

The +Bite Size Vegan has released another horse-related episode, and this one's a doosy. As someone who grew up on a working farm raising Morgan horses, I find reports like this one particularly troubling. I'd never been involved in the horse-racing scene myself, but I'd often heard about the abuses that happen there; my father was a professor of veterinary medicine (and a practicing large-animal vet) who kept well informed of such things. Still, I never had it so clearly explained as it is in this video (and there's a scene with a horses' leg breaking is pretty hard to watch -- for me, anyway).

However, the thing that really strikes me about this report is that if pre-vegans find actions like these problematic, then how can they possibly justify doing the same and worse to cows, chickens, et al... you know what I mean?
