I'm Daria. I write for Your Daily Vegan. I've been called a plethora of useless information, a cynic, a dork, a pretentious snob, and a good person. I'm trying not let others define me.

Have you ever noticed that while human rights activists are generally respected and even lauded, when the victim being defended is a non human animal, the activist is often attacked and dismissed as “pushing their agenda,” “holier-than-thou,” “extremist,” “purist,” “cultish,” “forcing his ideas down your throat,” “evangelical,” etc.? Have you ever heard a member of Amnesty International campaigning to save a human life accused of one these? I bet not. Why is that? When a conflict arises between otherwise progressive people and the animal foods they like, they can completely abandon their belief in social justice and — ironically — and aggressively defend the opposite, the very systems of exploitation and violence against people, the environment and animals they claim to oppose.

Happy birthday, Jim Henson. We miss you.

I hated high school. I don’t trust anybody who looks back on the years from 14 to 18 with any enjoyment. If you liked being a teenager, there’s something wrong with you.

Since the age of sixteen or so, I’ve thought it would be interesting to be friends with Alanis, but that if that ever happened, I’d feel too stupid to be friends with her. She’s a fascinating human being.
