Veggie Nugget #25

"The animals of the world exist for their own reasons. They were not made for humans any more than black people were made for white, or women created for men."

I actually bought a tshirt with this quote on it and stopped wearing when I discovered that she is an unfettered omnivore, not even lacto-ovo vegetarian

Tim, I actually knew that when I posted this quote. It's unfortunate that Walker isn't able to live up to her own ideals, but I think the sentiment still stands. Ghandi and MLK weren't vegan either, but I think many of their quotes can be useful when talking about veganism as nonviolence and a social justice issue.
