Elon Musk follows ZERO women on twitter, not even his mom
Eh, both of those statements are kind of silly. Some things lend themselves pretty well to vegan substitutions. Others not so much.
One of the problems is that there are so many folks out there who are trying to be zealous advocates for veganism and/or their own vegan cookbook/blog/whatever that they'll insist even the crappiest vegan facsimiles taste just as good as the originals.
You'll note that in traditions where vegetarian and/or vegan eating is already established you don't have that kind of crap and the food is quite enjoyable (see some Indian food). The problem is when people try to act like some vegeburger is an acceptable meal solution. Hell I get pissed at people who order burgers for diner so vegewhatever, fuckoff!
I am an ultimate omnivore but I will give that a lot of vegetarian cooking is quite good but vegan not so much especially if the dish is altered just to remove or substitute the animal products .Man has spent thousands of years struggling to get enough protein to survive . Veganism is a conceit of an overfed culture and an insult to real food traditions
The architect of the scheme is Thompson Chemists owner Jolie Alony, who claims that the tax helps level a playing field that is tilted against women. It also makes a political statement in support of women generally, and the Democratic Party in particular.
“We thought it’d be a great idea with all the political things going on—with Clinton being such a woman and the other guy and his womanizing,” Alony said.
The SoHo pharmacy posted two signs in the store’s front windows Monday announcing the new policy. A pink sign in one window reads, “New store policy: All Female Customers Shop Tax Free,” while a blue sign in the other window, reads “All Male Customers Are Subject to a 7% Man Tax.”
She also referred to the so-called “pink tax,” the extra amount women are reportedly charged for certain products or services, such as dry cleaning, personal care products and car maintenance. Added to income disparity, Alony said, the pink tax places an undue burden on women that needs to be rectified.
“We wanted to share that women deserve to get a break, and men deserve to be charged 7 percent more. Women are spending more in general and we make less, so we deserve to have a break,” Alony said.
