How to not be a meatflake

  1. Have courage
    First off, you need to grow a spine. It takes courage to stand up against animal abuse. Cowards will jump through hoops trying to come up with excuses. Don't let this be you.
  2. Keep an open mind
    Be willing to learn new things that challenge beliefs you've held since you were a kid.
  3. Don't resort to saying someone guilt tripped you when all they did was provide you with information
    It's natural to feel guilty when you learn about factory farms. The guilt is signal to make a positive change.
  4. Beware of confirmation bias
    Resist the urge to search only for information that supports what you want to believe. People love to hear good news about their bad habits. Don't fall into this trap.
  5. Be informed
    Don't be afraid to learn about factory farms. Learn about the horrors of the egg and dairy industries.
  6. Have a growth mindset
    Embrace change. Embrace learning.
  7. Watch documentaries
    Knowledge is power. Learn about what goes on. There's nothing to be gained by being ignorant of factory farms. Watch Dominion. What The Health. Forks Over Knives. Cowspiracy.
  8. Stop making excuses
    Be honest with yourself and stop living in denial. There's nothing wrong with changing your behavior as you gain more knowledge about something. In fact, being adaptable is one of the top characteristics of intelligence.
