i am still somewhat pissed over the vegan poke. someone can't support us because our organization is not vegan? honestly what is that supposed to mean? is the organization supposed to be vegan cuz the organization isn't an actual living entity and doesn't eat anything...vegan or not.
is it the people who are here who are supposed to be vegan? well what if they aren't?..do they have to leave? and what about the vegetarians who just don't eat meat...do they have to go too? if saints is an organzation that cares for around 120 animals at any given time...is it the animals themselves who must be vegan?..ok for the farm guys, they are pretty close to vegan but it kind of sucks for the dogs and the cats who are by nature born to be carnivores. old and sick animals are difficult enough to feed without forcing them to be vegan...3/4's would be dead in a week.
when people from nowhere pop into our website, facebook or blog and purposefully toss out that kind of you can't possibly win against this statement..it totally pisses me off. it is like it is a booby trap just waiting for the dumb boob to fall in so he or she can get eaten alive.
omg..really? SAINTS is not vegan??? how horrible!!
think about it....what are we supposed to do?..fire every gawd damn non vegan staff and volunteer member(including myself) so we are worthy of someone's support?
or how about...lie? and say we are all practicing virgin pure vegans when we are not?
it is ok not to send a donation...honestly, i don't really mind. i do not expect every person in the entire world to mail us a cheque. i get that some people like us and some people don't and many more people don't even know we exist..is this not the way of it in the real world???
i tell you, the internet has its own set of problems..like the ability to post in anywhere and say anything that you want. in the old days we either had to pick up the phone and talk to someone directly or write a scathing letter, stamp it and walk it to the mailbox or jump into the car to deliver our disapproving messages in person. since it took a fair amount of personal effort, a lot of things that could be said, were left unsaid. it was pretty good back then..it just took too much work and effort to go out of your way to piss off someone you haven't even met.
