Raise Your Glass to P!nk

WOW! I just saw the video for P!nk's latest (sure to be) hit! And it's made me love her even more :) Never one to shy away from controversy she has hit the nail on the head with this film clip, tackling topics that really tick her off! (And me! And you!)

It starts with P!nk giving a bull fighter a taste of his own medicine, with a magnificent bull watching on. Good thing places like Catalonia in Spain are waking up to the disgusting cruelty of this 'tradition'.

But the scene that's going to expose a few home truths to millions of pop fans watching this video might seem a little absurd at first...

But it really does outline the crazy hypocrisy of a society that thinks it's ok to drink milk that cows are producing for their own babies. While P!nk lovingly bottle-feeds a beautiful newborn calf litres and litres of milk, we then see what the milking machine is hooked up to:

If you think that's strange, don't you also think how weird it is that humans drink the milk of another species? (Gross!) And in doing so, support an industry that considers newborn calves as 'waste products'; tearing one million innocent babies away from their grieving mothers to be slaughtered. I know I think that's strange, and unjustifiably cruel!

Unjustified because, like P!nk, soy milk rocks! And almond milk, rice milk, oat milk and all the other cruelty-free dairy alternatives on the supermarket shelves. Why would anyone even want cow's milk?

A friend of mine recently said "Milk is stealing from babies." So true! And nice of P!nk to give a little of it back!

Join me in raising your glass to P!nk! What's in your glass right now?

Good on her for trying but honestly, I think people are too dumb to get it. They'll just think it's gross or funny and wont get the actual message.
She should have made it more obvious I guess.

One thing that does annoy me about vegans is that they think soy milk is good for them. Its not. Milk isnt either but soy milk is just as bad.

"One thing that does annoy me about vegans is that they think soy milk is good for them. Its not. Milk isnt either but soy milk is just as bad."

Not really, soy milk is just the idea of creating a milk like substance out of soy beans and is usually fortified with extra calcium and contains the protein from soy beans.

Of course drinking water and eating soy beans is better for you but i wouldn't go as far as to say soy milk is bad using just the evidence that dairy milk is bad when their not the same thing.

Soy milk is still considered good for you because it provides a decent about of nutrients with only small amounts of salts and fats, if you really want to go for that argument you would have to only eat raw fruits and vegetables because they are better for you then say a patty created from vegetables.

As someone who is interested in making the transition from vegetarian to vegan, I would really love to know why soy milk isn't good for you. I thought it was???
