Lierre Keith (author of "The Vegetarian Myth")...
We’ll have more on what a psycho Lierre Keith is soon but for now, here’s a bit of news from The Last Great Pool Party: “Bound Together Books and PM Press continue to try to prop up and foist veg*n antagonist Lierre Keith onto the radical community in the Bay Area. Today, at the 15th Annual San Francisco Anarchist Bookfair, where she was scheduled to be a featured speaker, Keith was...
I heard they eat women
I know new words are fun, but you can’t just go around inventing them willy-nilly! “Cybersex”: very important word development; “femivore”: SOME BULLSHIT. The New York Times offers up this new concoction as a combination of locavorism and modern housewifery and/or feminism. The writer, Peggy Orenstein from our very own Berkeley, Calif., has a few friends who grow...
Op-Ed: Outlaw fur
Presenting another op-ed by one of our writers, Steve! His views do not necessarily represent those of Vegansaurus as a whole, but as one of our regular contributors, we’re happy to give him the space to express his opinions. If you would like to write an op-ed for Vegansaurus, please contact Laura. Listen up, it’s time for some tough love. We need to face facts: the fur fight is over, and...
Awesome art, crazy-ass email, superlative videos,...
Hey, let’s wish happy birthday to my parents’ dog, Oliver, who turns three big years old today! Oliver (at left, shown here with his older brother, Beauregard) works as a therapy dog, has a charmingly insouciant underbite, and wants to be your bestest friend. Happy birthday, little fellow! Fun times vegan-style events! The Out of Place art show at SPACE Gallery (1141 Polk St. at...
Your Friday Plans: Out of Place art show!
There is still time for you to fit this into your social schedule: there is going to be a pretty awesome art show at SPACE gallery (that’s right next to the Hemlock, on Polk St.) tonight from 8 p.m. to midnight. Nine decently awesome artists are showing work—including me (but I’m indecently awesome)! The door fee is a paltry $3, which for the first 25 people gets them a bag of...
Shiraleah: the vegan hotness
Alternative Outfitters just got a bunch of new Shiraleah bags and I totally suggest checking them out! Three percent of their profits from the handbags go toward helping disabled children in Hanoi, Vietnam: “Our goal is to purchase needed rehabilitation equipment and double each child’s daily food budget to provide a balanced, nutritious diet.” Shweet! They’re also...
Animals! Adjectives! Television!
“Discover the glorious variety of life on earth and the spectacular and extraordinary tactics animals and plants have developed to stay alive.” Yowza! Take it easy with the adjectives! But this does seem pretty exciting. The Discovery Channel has put together a cool-looking series called Life. It’s the second chapter of their popular series Planet Earth and focuses on all the...
Raw vegan food from Vivapura rocks!
Unless you’ve been living in a fantasyland that involves subsisting on only defrosted leftovers from SF Vegan Bakesales (hey, I don’t judge!), you probably know we vegans can benefit greatly from supplementing our deep-fried vegan Twinkie intake with some raw greens now and then. Whether or not you fall into the camp that refrains from cooking their food, if you enjoy yummies that taste amazing...
Hello, BABY BUNNIES THE SIZE OF A FINGER! What’s that? You are one week old? And in a few months, you’ll be available for adoption through the Santé D’Or Foundation in L.A.? The Foundation, you say, rescued a rabbit called Bettina less than a month ago, who was already pregnant with all of you? Gosh, for the itty-bittiest little rabbits I have ever seen, you sure are full of useful...
Product review: Reduced Fat Vegenaise!
Follow Your Heart’s new Reduced Fat Vegenaise has been floating around health food stores for a few months now, but is totally lacking visibility on the internets (well, besides here). It deserves more love! Made with heart=healthy flaxseed and olive oil, this stuff has about half the fat and calories of original Veganaise. This means you can put twice the amount on your...

Lifehacker's common sense guide to "organic" and... →
Just because as vegans we’re all smart and stuff about food labels, doesn’t mean everyone else is. When polled, more people trust food labels with the word “natural” than people who trust the word “organic,” which is crazy. “Organic” is the word that’s actually regulated by governments, while “natural” is marketing fluff that anyone...
It's a boy!
I saw this story on the news Saturday night (shut up! I wouldn’t have gone out even if I did have somewhere to go!) and gee whiz, what a cutie! A little Masai giraffe was just born at Safari West, an African safari park in wine country. His name is Stretch McCovey, after some San Francisco Giants hall of fame player who was probably nowhere near as good as Mike Schmidt. But his nickname...
