Animal Lover


Alternative Lifestyles and Subcultures

There are certainley some very good points raised here! Many of them I agree with specisim makes sense to me I've never heard of it before. Certainly social culture and religious practice must come into this as well for example not eating pork, eating kosher meat or the addiction to fast food meat based products.

Eating meat is a strange contradiction. But a habit that has been passed down through generations and cultures for millennia. Personally for me I stopped eating meat as soon did my husband as we felt we we're eating far too much of it. When you hear lines like "It's not a meal unless it's got meat in it"

Environmental fragility has to challenge this idea. Fact is as I know we all know humanity consumes far to much in a a brutual, commercial almost like a world domination type of way massive corporate meat plants, abbotoirs, to value meat and supermarkert consumerism.

And most of us here care very much about the planet, natural environment and the animal kingdom. And Congratulations to you that have the knowledge, dicipline and dedication to be vegan. The planet is surely a better place for it. I'm certainly not going to rule it out and its something I may do in the future. Pescatarian is where im a right now. Its a journey isn't it much like growing dreads. finding yourself, your beliefs, the way to interact with the world and each other, and making new connections. I'm seeing this as a process. To try and look past what is currently a cultural norm and expectation. We have the ability to create a new culture and educate and open peoples eyes as we take our own journey.

Animal Lover


Alternative Lifestyles and Subcultures

i'm battling with this myself! I have been a pescatarian for well over a year. I would definatley count myself as an animal lover. However as far as the meat providing animals go pigs, cows, sheep ect. I wouldnt say I love them, of course I am fond of them, and extremely thankful for what they provide. Food, milk, warm wool ect. Its odd isnt it that they are animals but there are some that we love more than others. Is it weird that I would find it more difficult to hear that a deer had been killed for meat than a cow? part of the reason I stopped eating meet was after researching into the killing of animals through large scale commercial abattoir 's and the horrific circumstances in which there are led to slaughter.

I'm still trying to figure all this out I guess too.

Shampoo Advice UK


Dread Products

Hey I live in Bath! Yeh there isn't too much choice in the shops for us over here that i've found. I too used the Seanik lush bar for around 3 months I found after a while it left resudue and didnt seem to help with the locking. BS/ACV works ok but i always have to boil the water 1st. for most of my dreading I've been using Faith in Nature Shampoo! Im pretty sure you can buy it in most chemists or maybe even asda or telco. Its like 5 a bottle. I use a tablespoon diluted in a 1Ltr of water and add 10ish drops of tea tree. I started this when my dreads we're really young and the habits stuck. It works great, no resudue and no SLS which the lush bars do have! Maybe give it a try I use the rosemary one so its def more herby than fruity but i know there is a tea tree one too. Dr bronners doesnt work well with our water over here! It will feel real sudsy.

lumpy ends and persistently blunting tips


Dread Maintenance

well we are both on this journey together! I in fact had one of those days yesterday we're I wanted to comb but its all good now!! (all because I was worried about dressing up for a friends wedding!) Its annoying when you get the niggle though -_-

So. New day today!! :D My dreads are shrinking up loads just now and I feel like their gonna be that way for a while. I had really thick curls before dreading and hair grew slowly. But as we're in this for the long haul we will rock beautiful long locks one day. we gotta just take one day at a time. I will really try and post some pictures soon and you will see for sure that you are not alone in this!

Peace x

lumpy ends and persistently blunting tips


Dread Maintenance

I totally hear you. Mine are 14 month old and i have many like this too with massive lumpy tips that have blunted and then loopy lumpy middles. I rekon it must be fine the rest of the dread will catch up. I guess we can always un blunt the tips when its matured if we,re not into it. Pics would be good to share too. I really need to update my timeline in a big way.

Rainbow Gathering Europe


General Talk

Hey Sunflower!! Im so happy you posted about this!! I live in Bath England and I have just told my husband about this! We have a camper van (its in the workshop just now!) But we are totally up for trying to find the Rainbow too!! It would be our first time and wales is like a hour or so from us to drive! Obviously if we can go and the camper is road worthy their would be room for others to come on the journey :)

So how does this work as it says the date for the gathering is the 6th August 6th Sept Does this mean that people can turn up anytime in that month and stay or go as they please!!

SE your stories are just fabulous by the way!! Thankyou for sharing :)
