This week we look at the curious case of vegan (or vegan-adjacent) phrases and messaging that are being co-opted by animal exploiters. Starting with an advertisement for plant based menthol and ending at a pig exploitation theme park, we’re taking a trip into bizarro world! Has the term “plant based” entirely lost it’s meaning? Why are dairy farms trying to add cow’s milk to plant based diets? Is fur actually good for the environment? And what fresh dystopian hell are we living in when people can be taught about how amazing pigs are, witness their complete subjugation, and come out feeling okay with eating them?
