May the murderers be punished, and anyone who pays for the murder.

Being vegan is the minimum requirement of normal human behaviour. There is nothing extreme about being vegan.
Guilty
saswata commented on Three Rivers by saswata
I was also given milk and honey as a child. I wish it had not happened. Both milk and honey are meant for other children, not human children. Please, do not drink milk from cows or any species other than your own. Milk is for babies, not for adults. Cow milk is for baby cows and baby bulls only. Cows are raped (artificially inseminated) on what farmers (harmers) call “rape racks”. The calves are taken away from the mother, and the milk meant for them is stolen. The babies who are not chosen to become milk slaves or murdered later for their flesh, as young adult, are murdered as babies. They are given substitutes for milk that causes anemia, for the sake of the tastes of evil murderers, rapists and enslavers. When they are murdered the inside of their baby stomachs are taken and put into the stolen milk, as “rennet”, to separate the milk in order to make cheese. Evil “humans” become addicted to cheese because it contains natural morphine, which becomes more concentrated when much of the water content of the milk is removed to make the cheese. Like many addicts of certain drugs they don't care about the life of another person (the calf), and would do anything to get their next fix of cheese.

I didn't erase anything. I simply didn't draw the fine lines, but only the shadows next to them. The fine lines are the empty spaces, where the paper is untouched by the pencil.

I don't have much sparetime after work. It's a stupid job, soldering circuit cards. Therefore I can't make any drawings. I do everything very slowly, you see.
