On AR-NEWS an animal rights activist conveniently posted an excerpt from a book, Teen People: Real Life Diaries, which features a section by techno artist Moby explaining his reason for being a vegan and what that entails. According to Moby,
IÂ’ve been a proud vegan for fourteen years, since I was twenty-one. That means I donÂ’t eat meat or chicken or even fish (they have feelings too). And I donÂ’t eat products that come from animals, like milk (unless, of course, itÂ’s soy milk) or cheese. As you can probably guess, you wonÂ’t catch me wearing leather or fur. But thatÂ’s not all. I also refuse to buy products that have been tested on animals.
Really? That’s interesting because in early January of this year Moby was attacked by a stray cat he came across in New York City and was briefly hospitalized. According to numerous reports on the incident, Moby received a tetanus shot and antibiotics while hospitalized — all products which were extensively tested in animals.
Apparently in Moby’s book all animals are equal, some — such as pop singers — are just more equal than others.
