In lieu of my vegan story (it’s World Vegan Day, peoples!), I bring you a week’s worth of vegan links. The day was a gorgeous one, and probably the last of the season, so I spent most of it outside. Please forgive me! I swear, I’ll share my vegetarian/vegan conversion story…I want to say “tomorrow,” but “someday” is a safer bet.

But. If a picture is indeed worth a thousand words, this photo more or less sums it up.

Now about those links…

FYI: the polls are open on Technorati’s State of the Blogosphere Survey!

Over the years, Technorati has been tracking the State of the Blogosphere. Our annual study investigates how blogging is growing and changing, as well as its impacts on current events and the bottom lines of businesses and bloggers. Please share your perspective by participating in our survey.

We think you’ll find the survey interesting. It should take just 15 minutes of your time, and of course your answers will be completely confidential. Please feel free to send this link to other bloggers you know. And be sure to check back on Technorati in October for a summary of the results.

Please take a minute – okay, ten or fifteen – to complete the survey. Vegan bloggers represent!

Also, Molly of It’s A Vegan Dog’s Life has launched a sister blog, It’s A Vegan Dog’s World, in order to

show others that it’s possible for dogs to live happy, healthy vegan lives while giving your dog a chance to be in the spotlight.

If you know a vegan dog, share your friend’s story here.

Save the Whales, Boycott PETA (175x750)

Here’s your weekend link roundup, folks. I still intend to weigh in on a few of PETA’s recent campaigns, including the whole “Save the Whales” clusterfuck. In the meantime, I’ve probably written a week’s worth of material on other people’s blogs; see, for example, my comments on change.org, as well as on the Animals Rights Facebook wall. I hope to coalesce these into one monster blog piece sometime next week. Until then, feel free to jump into the fray, futility be damned. (Honestly – what’s with the idol worship? Since when did critical thinking, self-reflection and debate become impediments? Blind hero worship, no want!)

Also, I spent Friday afternoon remixing PETA’s billboard to better reflect my feelings, namely, “Save the ‘Whales’: Boycott PETA” (by “whales” I mean the actual whales PETA is insulting with this speciesist ad, as well as the so-called “whales” who are the most obvious target of PETA’s hate). You can download a large copy of the “Boycott PETA” billboard image here. The version included at the top of this post is a little different; I reworked the dimensions to 750×175 so that I could add it to the series of rotating banners on the website. It doesn’t really fit with the “V for Vegan” theme, but I think it looks awesome up there anyway. If you feel as I do, and like the anti-PETA banner, please download, display and share it.

And yes, I recognize the irony in decorating this post with a “Boycott PETA” banner while still linking to a number of PETA action alerts and contests. As much as I abhor how PETA spreads its message, the group still does some good work, such as with its undercover investigations and targeted email campaigns. I’ll continue to link to alerts with which I agree – and share contests as long as the giveaways are not offensive – because the animals should not suffer for PETA’s sizeism, sexism, racism, homophobia, transphobia, classism, speciesism, etc., etc., etc. The Illinois deer about to be maimed and murdered by crossbows, for example, have nothing to do with PETA’s hateful rhetoric; they still need us to speak for them. We can and should lend our voices to them, while also speaking out against PETA’s “isms.”

The most effective way to do this, is to boycott the group with our pocketbooks. If you have time or money to donate, please give to a more deserving – and ethically consistent – organization, such as Peaceful Prairie, Eastern Shore, Igualdad Animal, LGBT Compassion, or PCRM.

Finally, the Humane Society of Missouri is holding its speciesist polo/BBQ fundraiser as I write. If you haven’t yet, please read Stephanie’s piece, “Fundraising for Animals by Endangering and Killing Animals,” and take action. Obviously, it’s too late to stop this year’s event, but if we keep the pressure on, hopefully we can convince them to rethink organizing similar events in the future. Since Stephanie launched the campaign, Animal Place and United Poultry Concerns have both added their voices.

FYI: It’s kind of late notice, but I wanted to include this email I received from PETA anyhow:

Our investigation into the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus is making waves around the world! And now that we’ve exposed the horrible treatment that elephants and tigers receive at the hands of Ringling, PETA Senior Vice President Lisa Lange will be on “Issues With Jane Velez-Mitchell” tonight to discuss the details surrounding this historic investigation. Don’t miss it!

What: PETA Senior Vice President Lisa Lange discusses our investigation into Ringling’s abuse of animals.
When: Tonight, Friday July 24, 7 p.m. EST (and again from 9-10 p.m. and 12 midnight-1 a.m.)
Where: CNN Headline News (HLN)

For more information about the investigation, please visit RinglingBeatsAnimals.com.

Whether you catch the show or not, please send Jane Velez-Mitchell a note of thanks for covering PETA’s investigation. As far as the MSM goes, Issues is a rather animal-friendly hour.

Now back to our regularly scheduled link roundup!
