Is Morrissey a vegan superhero? The Huffington Post reports that Morrissey has refused to go on a talk show because one of the other guests were off a reality show based around a hunting equipment entrepreneur. On a reread, because I can’t actually believe my own writing, it seems the program may not be a reality show, rather it is simply a fictional series.
Nevertheless, Morrissey cannot appear on the show “alongside people who, in effect, amount to animal serial killers”. Whether you agree with this stance or not, Morrissey’s action has to be admired as he is clearly not letting business get in the way of his moral position. This is pretty admirable in this day and age, a politician or two could do well to pay heed! So does this make Morrissey a vegan superhero?
**NB: It’s been pointed out that Morrissey is NOT vegan, ahem. So therefore he is NOT a Vegan Superhero, so who is?**
It appears that Morrissey has been outspoken again. In an interview for his fan website he has come out with some, errrr… powerful stuff
If Jamie ‘Orrible is so certain that flesh-food is tasty then why doesn’t he stick one of his children in a microwave?
Since a lamb is a baby, I wondered what kind of mind Cilla Black could possibly have that would convince her that eating a baby is OK?
If this doesn’t affect you in a moral sense then you’re probably granite. I see no difference between eating animals and paedophilia. They are both rape, violence, murder.
These quotes are taken from two newspaper reports in the Guardian and the Independent. And he isn’t even vegan! So how does he reconcile the harm his non-vegan activities inflict on animals with these views? Odd.
Who are the vegan superheroes?
It made me wonder who the vegan heroes really are? I once had a conversation about heroes and one of mine has always been Nelson Mandela who led a nation into democracy against all odds. That after more than 20 years in jail for no valid reason AND without an ounce of bitterness! Amazing.
But I digress… So who are your vegan superheroes? They could be animal rights activists, showing the world that animals matter. Or vegan athletes showing the world that vegan ain’t pasty half dead hippies (well not always). Or perhaps vegan pop/film stars promoting vegan issues. Or even an unknown vegan superhero who is actually famous for local vegan activities. You decide!
Anyhow, for a bit of fun I’m calling out for suggestions, so anyone reading this blog, please leave a comment with a suggestions and reason and I’ll collate them and make a poll to see if we can come up with a vegan superhero. Waddaya reckon?
If you prefer Facebook comments work too, although I may just miss your suggestions on Facebook. SO who is your vegan superhero?
My vegan superhero
After a little reflection and reading through some of the comments on Facebook I’ve realised that the first vegan superhero I had wasn’t just one person, it was in fact Conflict the punk group from the 80s. The first side of the second album was quite an important album for me at the time.
This still makes the hairs stand up on the back of my neck. They were vegan I was veggie at that time but they were pretty impressive in their ‘all out attack’ philosophy. And we all love a bit of noisy punk rock, eh?
