About

easyVegan.info began eons ago, when my husband purchased the domain for me as a x-mas gift, in a then-failed attempt to encourage me to start a blog. Though he eventually won out, I grew tired of the blog’s name and domain after a few years, particularly as the blog evolved from a place to crosspost action alerts, to a repository of my own writings on animal rights, feminism, laguage, pop culture and intersectionality. Rather than purchase a new domain and up and move the website – which would be a huge pain in the ass – I ultimately decided that a face lift was in order.

In place of the old www.easyVegan.info banner (which I quite liked, don’t get me wrong, all plainness aside), I created a series of banners – 77 at last count – comprised of a photo or piece of artwork, upon which is superimposed a single word or, in several cases, a short phrase. Each of these words was chosen to represent a theme, quality, or perspective found on easyVegan.info – the most important being “Vegan” (hence the new title of the blog: “V for Vegan”…followed by “easyVegan.info” for good measure). Likewise, the graphics with which they’re juxtaposed are meant to reflect and reinforce these themes, in some cases (e.g., Feminist, No. 1; Herbivore); while in others they provide stark contrast for added emphasis (e.g., Compassion, Nos. 1 and 2; Uncaged). A few of the word/graphic combos, I couldn’t resist throwing in for quirky comic relief (I’ll let you take a stab at those). I’ve tried my very best to represent all the letters of the alphabet, but as of this writing haven’t been able to find an appropriate word or concept for “X.”

Fans of the Wachowski brothers and astute observers may have noticed that I’ve included not one, but two graphics from V for Vendetta, even though the film doesn’t so much as mention animal rights or even veganism (alliterations be damned). V for Vendetta is one of my favorite movies (top twenty, maybe? ten?; fans of Alan Moore’s graphic novel may scoff that the film is unnecessarily heavy-handed and over-the-top, and perhaps it is – but I cherish it, as well as the novelization, just the same), and it’s from the story’s title that I eked out easyVegan.info’s new name, “V for Vegan.” With all the v-words in Vendetta – The Man from Room V, Evey, Valerie, vendetta, violence, vicissitude, victory – I always thought it wrong that “vegan” (or even “vegetarian”) never made the cut. A truly radical revolution must include non-human animals as well as their human counterparts. In keeping with the spirit of Vendetta, the first letter of each word sits in a circle, still dripping wet with spray paint.

While most of the word/graphic choices are self-explanatory, I’ve commented on a few of them where appropriate. You can find my commentary, along with the original images and photo credits, below. My commentary, should there be any, appears above the banner, while the credits follow the thumbnail of the original image.

In order to strike a workable balance between efficiency and variety, the banner display is random and set to automatically rotate every 90 minutes. Since some of the banners aren’t safe for work (and rely on cookies), there’s a “Reload Banner” button located above the Search box and button in the right-hand sidebar, so that users can force a rotation as needed (or desired).

All that said, should you have any suggestions for “X,” please send them my way!

Bitch

As always, I use the term “bitch” not in an insulting manner, but as a term of respect: bitches get shit done. Along with “cunt,” I’m all about reclaiming the term – not using it as a weapon against other women.

Or against other animals: any project of reclamation must include the literal subjects of the word, as well – namely, our canine sisters.

It’s for this reason that I chose a photo not just of a woman doing good, but of a woman doing good by her dog friend, to illustrate the concept.

I should note that I’ve neither a clue to the gender of the masked liberator nor to the dog she’s holding. But, given that they both appear somewhat androgynous (particularly in the cropped version of the photo), coupled with my inability to find a more suitable image, let’s just imagine, shall we?

Cunt, No. 1

As with “bitch,” my use of “cunt” is always in the spirit of reclaiming the term. To me, it’s a sign of respect, admiration, sisterhood and female power.

What better image to represent this concept, then (and to signify both my feminism and veganism), than a Venus Flytrap?

There is an estimated total of about 1,100 [bat] species worldwide, which is about 20 percent of all classified mammal species. […] Bats are present throughout most of the world and perform a vital ecological role by pollinating flowers, and eat various plants to disperse their seeds. Many tropical plants depend for their seeds to be distributed entirely by bats.

Karma

The Thylacine

was the largest known carnivorous marsupial of modern times. It is commonly known as the Tasmanian Tiger (because of its striped back), the Tasmanian Wolf, and colloquially the Tassie (or Tazzy) Tiger or simply the Tiger. Native to continental Australia, Tasmania and New Guinea, it is thought to have become extinct in the 20th century. It was the last extant member of its genus, Thylacinus, although several related species have been found in the fossil record dating back to the early Miocene.

The Thylacine became extinct on the Australian mainland thousands of years before European settlement of the continent, but it survived on the island state of Tasmania along with several other endemic species, including the Tasmanian Devil. Intensive hunting encouraged by bounties is generally blamed for its extinction, but other contributory factors may have been disease, the introduction of dogs, and human encroachment into its habitat. Despite its official classification as extinct, sightings are still reported. […]

The last captive Thylacine, later referred to as “Benjamin” (although its sex has never been confirmed) was captured in 1933 and sent to the Hobart Zoo where it lived for three years. […] This Thylacine died on 7 September 1936. It is believed to have died as the result of neglect—locked out of its sheltered sleeping quarters, it was exposed to a rare occurrence of extreme Tasmanian weather: extreme heat during the day and freezing temperatures at night. This Thylacine features in the last known motion picture footage of a living specimen: 62 seconds of black-and-white footage showing it pacing backwards and forwards in its enclosure in a clip taken in 1933 by naturalist David Fleay. National Threatened Species Day has been held annually since 1996 on 7 September in Australia, to commemorate the death of the last officially recorded Thylacine. […]

The Thylacine held the status of endangered species until 1986. International standards state that any animal for which no specimens have been recorded for 50 years is to be declared extinct. Since no definitive proof of the Thylacine’s existence had been found since “Benjamin” died in 1936, it met that official criterion and was declared officially extinct by the International Union for Conservation of Nature.

In December ’06, Shane and I caught the exhibit Cryptozoology: Out of Time Place Scale at the Kansas City Art Institute’s Artspace. While most of the pieces dealt with cryptids – animals thought, but not proven to exist – one exhibit caught my eye.

In front of a projection screen sat a statute of the Tasmanian Tiger (pictured below). There playing, on a never ending loop, were the 62 seconds of Benjamin’s life immortalized on film. 62 long, lonely seconds, spent pacing – in what? Frustration? Anger? Sadness? Boredom? Heartbreak? Only to die of human neglect, one of the last of her kind. I found the footage haunting then; I still do, upon recollection.

As an atheist, I don’t believe in unprovable religious concepts like karma. As an animal advocate, I sometimes wish I did.

Overdog

Canis Major

The great Overdog
That heavenly beast
With a star in one eye
Gives a leap in the east.
He dances upright
All the way to the west
And never once drops
On his forefeet to rest.
I’m a poor underdog,
But to-night I will bark
With the great Overdog
That Who romps through the dark.

– Robert Frost (1874-1963)

Dog is the closest thing to God this heathen will ever know. You can hear it in my vernacular, in the turns on common Christian phrases I employ to reflect my lack of religion: Dog Almighty. For Dog’s sake. Dog’s green earth. Dogdammit. Get right with D-O-G. Sometimes when I close my eyes (or, better yet, turn them moonward on a glowing night) I can almost imagine a great Overdog, a heavenly beast, dancing and prancing in the starlight above. Almost.

The dog in this photo represents the Underdog as well as the Overdog; rescued in the wake of Hurricane Katrina, she was one of the lucky dogs who survived. She is the Overdog and the Underdog; she is survivor and victim, compassion and neglect; she is love – and she is a searing indictment of a nation’s disregard for the poor, the disadvantaged and the non-human.

Dog bless, little one, Dog bless.

Meat is for Pussies by John Joseph (2010)

This banner (top) is based on several t-shirt designs I created (middle) as a sort of vegan-feminist response to John Joseph’s 2010 hegan manifesto, Meat is for Pussies (bottom). FYI: the t-shirts are available for purchase on zazzle.
