Have you heard about The Ghosts In Our Machine? It’s a new film scheduled for production in 2012. Like the film’s name, the teaser trailer is quietly staggering, suffused with uncommon intellectual clarity, emotional honesty, and (I dare say) cinematographic genius.
This is important.
This is important.
my heart beating like a hummingbird, never knowing why i feel this way, sleeping in for days, i could drive in the dark listening to la dispute for the rest of my life, smiling really hard with my mouth guard in, singing brand new at the top of my lungs, up all night, holding my tongue, feeling like myself and not like myself all at once, holding/cuddling/petting all of the best animals, already missing home, already playing your games again
Thanks so much. I really just couldn’t believe that he would even stoop to that level. It embarrasses me to have someone that is so respected in the vegan community turn out to be such a disgusting prick. I hope that people that have read that post contact him and let him know that they no longer have their support or respect.
He is a complete uneducated misogynistic asshole and I am not sad to see him go.
This is the conversation my sister had with Mr.Yourofsky via email. I think it speaks for itself.
I recently came across one of your speeches online and I really enjoy what you have to say about animal rights. However, I was shocked and embarrassed by a quote I found in “The Gary Yourofsky Interview”, “Every woman ensconced in fur should endure a rape so vicious that it scars them forever. While every man entrenched in fur should suffer an anal raping so horrific that they become disemboweled.” Please do not advocate rape as punishment for people who commit crimes against animals. Rape is not punishment, it is a horrible crime. I’m very disappointed that a compassionate and intelligent person like yourself was even quoted saying that. I hope you take this letter into consideration when giving future speeches.
Gary: I am a proud advocate of violence as EVIL people deserve NOTHING but evil in return. Only a fatuous fool who is concerned about politics would advocate pacifism.
You shouldn’t snoop around the Internet for things I’ve said as ALL of my essays/feelings are espouses openly and clearly on my adaptt.org site. If you have the courage, read my two essays on VIOLENCE.
Sister: I do not agree with your advocacy for violence, but I was NOT snooping to find dirt on you Mr. Yourofsky. I was trying to find more information about your views because as I said before, I enjoyed a different speech you gave in Atlanta. I did not purposely search for the darker side of your views, as I did not even know that they existed. At this point, it seems as if I do not agree with you at all and I also do not appreciate being called a fool. I believe that no one deserves to be raped and certainly not as a punishment for anything. You think your 20 year old self should have been raped and disemboweled because you were not educated on the suffering of animals? I will choose not to read your essays as they are not worth my time.
That is all,
You can contact Gary Yourofsky @ email@example.com
EDIT: Here is the final word from YourofskyGary: Since you won’t read the essays AND LEARN, you have proven my point about your foolishness, you UNEDUCATED, CLOSE-MINDED fool. Fuck off and stay stupid, Taylor.
