The princesses had a lot of random shit to talk about this week, so we put it all together in a mixed bag episode! We announce a new advice segment on the show, each rant about something that’s pissing us off, announce upcoming travel and speaking events, go over a ton of news, and talk about the efficacy of telling non-vegans that they don’t love animals if they eat them.

First up, the reason I mentioned that I’m a dad is that, from looking around vegan websites (this “I am a Vegan” section included), you might be led to believe that all vegans are female. The reasons behind this phenomenon are probably complex and multi-layered, but, if I were a betting chap, I’d wager it’s something to do with old-fashioned mainstream toxic masculinity, the idea that men aren’t allowed to have empathy, or kindness, or that being uncruel to animals is somehow going to “turn you gay/female/soft”, or some horrible nonsense like that. (Mainstream hetero ideas of manliness really are pretty daft, on the whole. I could easily go into a whole ranting essay about why it makes more biological sense for the gender who has dangly genitals to wear skirts than for the gender who have nice neat tucked away netherbits, but I won’t. Goodness knows anyone who knows me has already heard enough about that particular topic.) Anyway, thought I’d hit that issue on the head straight off the bat: believe it or not, the amount you respect the welfare of other beings doesn’t actually have any relationship to your gender, sexuality, strength, or anything else. Indeed, if anything, you actually have to be a stronger person to choose animal welfare over the lazy ease of conformist corpse-eating! […]Continue reading »

As mentioned in episode #082 Knowing When to Walk Away, Callie and Nichole get personal and talk about their personal stories with abuse and whether they walked away or stayed and what the result was.
This episode is extra content that didn’t make it into the episode so it’s not super concise or well organized… But we are hoping that by sharing our deeply personal stories it may help someone who is or has gone similar situations.
To those that are or have dealt with abuse, our hearts go out to you! Please know that you are not alone, and though it may take time, healing is possible.
Thank you for letting us share <3Continue reading »
