Comments from my instgram thanksgiving posts *

• glenefriedman I am thankful if you take some time and educate yourselves about the plight of NATIVE AMERICANS today, do some googling, read up... do us all the favor... and also figure out why people like me who didn't grow up in hippy families became vegan, because we're PUNK and because we want a better world for all. Try and watch the movie COWSPIRACY today, its on netflix (horrible title that even kept me from watching it for a while, but a very good film) #foodchoices and our #planet #environment #WuTangIsForTheChildren #care #wewillliveanddiebythefork #forksoverknives @cowspiracy #environment #impact #inspiration #aBetterWorld #vegan #vegetarian #thanksgiving without dead animals is easy. #iCare #WakeUp #EffectTheFuture #YouCanDoIt #DAPL #IfICouldSoCouldYou #WhatTheFuckHaveYouDone? ✌🏽️πŸ™πŸ½πŸ’š



jendessingerI'm watching now!

c_gettingsJust watched it last weekend. It's eye opening.

kenrock1oneAnnnnd here come the vegan thanksgiving memes.


glenefriedman@kenrock1one all day πŸ‘πŸ½πŸ˜‡

toomanycreepsI like you even more now

necronomicolinYES! Didn't know you were vegan! A thousand times cooler in my book and I've admired your work for years! πŸ‘πŸ»

neckdeepnetx Vegan for life x

definitelynotkyletaylorvegans aren't crazy, they're fucking annoying



suddenlysaganI visited @woodstocksanctuary a couple yrs ago, & a turkey followed me around like a puppy & nuzzled me til I scratched her head. Intelligent, sensitive, goofy creatures. 2 friends I was with stopped eating animals after that visit. Ever since I broke down crying & refused to eat one almost 25 yrs ago @ 18, I'll never understand how I ever could.


6uncle6paulie6Id like to eat a vegan


sss_liverpoolThe false economy to get nutrients in the body - meat. An outdated practice of complicit killing that the so called "animal lovers" fail to recognise. Cats and dogs have all the luck as Gorilla Biscuits said...

glenefriedman@definitelynotkyletaylor as are people who don't give a shit about the environment. Beyond in fact.

glenefriedman@the_bondsman thanks for taking the time to write calm polite and decent. πŸ™πŸ½Respected, but fact is we no longer need to kill animals for nourishment ✊🏽and in fact not eating animals in better for our planet, our bodies and the animals. Time for real change. I did it almost 30 years ago, it wasn't so easy then, nowadays there's no excuse except laziness, not knowing the realities, or just simply not giving a shit selfishness. Again i respect your thoughts and words, i urge you to watch COWspiracy @cowspiracy , "Forks Over Knives" or many other informative films on the subjects near and dear to all of our lives ✌🏽️

_jason_tracy@glenefriedman check out Peaceable Kingdom, the Journey Home. I believe its being released online soon.

tonylinn1I hunt for meat, I love it. Deer, Elk, Antelope, Pronghorn, if we didn't hunt here in Oklahoma, we would have an out of control population of deer, that would devistate farms, just like the feral hog population is doing. I eat and use everything I hunt...besides, it's just not fun hunting broccoli

erich_x_x_x_tattoo@definitelynotkyletaylor Selfish folks who harm whatever is in the way of pleasing their senses are truly annoying. Destroy the Earth for a flavor that you're too weak to overcome. Sad.

definitelynotkyletaylor@erich_x_x_x_tattoo my point in case

justaj67That's what I was wondering ☝️️, if no one eats all these animals what happens to them all? They would quickly take over.

erich_x_x_x_tattoo@definitelynotkyletaylor 😘😘😘

shagmeisterThere are some parts of the world that need an animal population control like Hawaii with the axis deer/boar problem, but then there is the industry of big meat and gmo fed and misstreated overproduced animals that's where things start getting gross and too big too understand

erich_x_x_x_tattoo@definitelynotkyletaylor At least we aren't as annoying as those civil rights activists, or worse... those goofs that are trying to protect sacred indigenous lands. Ew. People standing up for sentient beings, or the Earth, or their fellow humans... so annoying. Pull your head out of your ass and stand for something! Care about something! Do something and quit your whining about those who do!

glenefriedmanEducate yourselves a bit beyond what you are taught in schools and by corporations who only see and use you as consumers that most are , not by your own fault as children , but now that you are adults it's time to learn on your own as you fend for yourself, learn for yourself. Some of the points people make here just show me how disconnected and uneducated some of us are, its unfortunate. But if you respect what i have shared with my work and the people i have represented why not take it a step further and LISTEN to what else i am recommending πŸ™πŸ½✌🏽️✊🏽

erich_x_x_x_tattoo@justaj67 They are bred in huge numbers, by forced impregnation, using stored semen, by humans, for food. If people stop buying and eating them, they will stop breeding them. No animal takeover will happen. It'll be okay.

definitelynotkyletaylor@erich_x_x_x_tattoo just shut the fuck up

erich_x_x_x_tattoo@definitelynotkyletaylor Aw. You got me. 🀐

mikegrayumartHahahaha. #wutangisforthechildren @glenfriedman some the tags are funny

txistheplaceHamburgers are delishπŸ” and so is menudo

jimmyredmonAnd they make great sandwiches for the following week. Hahaha

djrosedna@erich_x_x_x_tattoo TEACH!

erich_x_x_x_tattoo@djrosedna I forget other people see my rants. Haha.


literecordingsBeen a vegi since 15 years old. I'm 40 now and still skating and healty. But I do drive a Volkswagen, sorry.




stevenasburySo rad you're vegan. Im vegan almost 22 years now. Big fan!

xseanbonnerx@howardhoodkanoa that is the stupidest shit I've read all day. Keep your fairy tales to yourself.

cleliamrn@m_kp LΓ  je suis dΓ©gueu? πŸ˜…πŸ˜‚

78_gitanaAll you vegans I have a question I've tried to do it numerous times but I always end up getting super weak and sick, I take iron and b12 also and eat very healthy but I always end up needing somethibg more...any suggestions?πŸ˜†πŸƒπŸŒΏπŸ’—

bgordonn@jasonskare 😘

bgordonn@howardhoodkanoa someone once said "thou shall not kill" there was no asterisk that said "applies to humans only"... Also if you don't agree with something, why support it? We can change the way the world produces food if the demand changes. It's not sustainable for the worlds population to consume meat and dairy with earth's environment. Fact. Thank you for speaking your mind and beliefs. Respect.

glenefriedman@xseanbonnerx great reply haaaaa. I don't know what happens to some of these old skaters believing these crazy tales... I'll be deleting all these TG posts later tonight or in the morning anyhow.

the_wurst1People really quote fairy tale scripture to justify anything.

• the_wurst1Ha, i didn't see the other dude basically what i just said. People scare the shit out of me. I'm becoming so withdrawn with every year that passes. Thank @glenefriedman for being one persom with a good head on your shoulders.

djrosednaI'm thankful that you used your platform to promote this aspect of consciousness raising. It's a lynchpin to many of our looming problems. It all starts with the one thing you can control, your choice.



psycho_78_@tarabrown How does one get that VEGAN emoji or whatever it's called? I dig it!

renman3000It's a game of inches.

tarabrown@psycho_78_ I copy it from text. Not sure how to make it with my iPhone keyboard.

tonylinn1ᎣᏏᏲ (Osiyo, hello)Sometimes I come off half cocked in replies, but this subject strikes a cord with me. I know about you and "the plight of Native Americans", but as a member of the ᏣᎳᎩ / Tsalagi (Cherokee)Nation, we are NOT suffering, neither are the Nations represented here in Indian Territory, aka Oklahoma which is an Osage name Okla-huma meaning red's become the latest celebrity cause to defend the "Indians"...believe me, we don't need charity, amd we do very well financially. The Huvasupai in Arizona live in a remote area at the bottom of the Grand Canyon, and they like it that way. Only the Navajo and Sioux complain, they have let white mans alcohol ruin their people, and continue to let gang violence ruin their own families on the rez all of which they got from white mans influence. The only plight they need to rid themselves of, is of their own doing. I love my people, and weep for my other Native brothers and sisters, but they don't need charity, they need to recognize the need to stand on thier own and end their own plight. Peace, shalom (I'm also 1/2 Jewish), Salam, ᏩᏙ (Wado) thank you.

glenefriedman@tonylinn1 by plight, i just meant to have an understanding of what's been going on since the pilgrims had landed here, charity wasn't mentioned. In first grade i met my first best friend who was native american, i have been aware to some degree since, seeing the shit he had to deal with from that age i believe ✌🏽️ helped to politicize me for the rest of my life. No disrespect meant, only further understanding


tonylinn1High πŸ‘‹ Glen. Keep on keepin on. I've enjoyed your work for many years!

javiercoupeofficialYes !


justaj67@glenefriedman do you know of any reputable sources to donate to for this? I'm having a hard time finding a good way to help. I can't make it out there but would like to do something

graemedwilliams@justaj67 Go to @ocetisakowincamp and follow the link in the profile to donate

rondalausdinWar is now, it's like Jello Biafra said, " There's more of us than there are of them, but who's gonna go 1st?".


danwal215Shameful magnification of Americas unjust treatment of it's Native People.


jonathancannon101I concur .

glenefriedmanIt amazes me that people unfollow after i ask them to look at reality, to do a little tiny bit of homework, to just think beyond corporate control of their own lives (which they obviously don't realize) Pretty fucking incredible, no wonder we have #Dump for president elect. Scary shit. I won't give up just because you have πŸ€”πŸ˜‡


lifer27Proud vegan here. ✊🏼

runflores78Why doesn't the president step in and stop this fucking madness?!?!?!


rvigh72@glenefriedman I'll start by saying that I probably don't share all the same values you do, but the one thing is I'm respectful of yours and can have an intelligent dialogue if education is the point. Most people on the other hand have their opinions, their opinions are fact in their eyes, therefore they have no interest in discussion. It's easier to unfollow than admit other people have opinions of their own.


therichrose@glenefriedman people who are asleep don't like being woken up because it's painful so they unfollow. And social media is their way of staying sedated. Keep doing your thing πŸ‘ŠπŸΌ

siobhanhartnettI'm with you, Glen. I saw a comment here about donating, and I'll be doing that soon πŸ‘πŸ»@glenefriedman

fix_me_1970@glenefriedman It's fucked that our government is dropping chemicals on these people while they sleep. It's so fucked ... Time for us to stand up to this bullshit

fleshcrucifixvxFuck them if they can't handle the truth. #noDAPL #vegan #punk! #punksforstandingrock

upstatecustomcoThis is a truly sad event. I feel horrible for the innocent people that were truly abused for speaking their mind. But I can't help but feel completely sorry for the human robots that don't have enough will power, empathy or basic thought to not harm their fellow humans and instead listen to them. Sad

pretty_radThe matrix is real. No joke. Rewritten histories, mass consumerism, corporate domination, factory farming... Fight the good fight

mttmrtnzGlen, thank you. You are a source of inspiration on many levels. We share similar beliefs and ideals. Your insight is highly valued. Not only has your art put me in places and with people that I would have never experienced, but your passion and heartfelt love of the "punk" that I also love (and directly shaped who I am) drives me to continue fighting in every way possible, hopefully inflicting some positivity in the world. Thank you.

fleshcrucifixvxAnyone in L.A. looking to donate supplies, look up the #punksforstandingrock tag and read the second post by my band @deadtribepunk. There you'll find all the info for two drop off sites collecting the items that I'll shipping to the camps myself.


jennycontraryThank you.

whatevernbdFuck ya

topshelfcustomcyclesYou make great photos, Glen.



sharpconstructionservicesPeaceful protest won't work against the corporate robots. They only understand violence or application thereof.




jj_withersThe authorities are about to incite a riot. Check out the alert they sent out this morning. THIS IS A CODE RED NOTIFICATION FROM BURLEIGH COUNTY AND BISMARCK LAW ENFORCEMENT.
All persons traveling to Morton or Burleigh County this thanks giving weekend, including Mandan and Bismarck are to be on alert to their surroundings. Any suspicious activity witnessed should be reported. Call your local law enforcement center. Rioters in the area are intent on creating an unsafe environment for the public.

howardhoodkanoaGod spoke the words and the earth melts. All your works are burned in the fire. Lay for your selves treasures in heaven. Do the research.

montrealgirllHi Glen, just started following you after coming across some of your great posts! Love this one too, but oh! the drama it's causing! What is wrong with people these days?? (It's a rhetorical question peeps)

gildedlily_Thank you for these posts, Glen. I'm glad we share the same beliefs

nelskyle#freepeltier #apeopleshistoryoftheunitedstates

tapetenwechselSo true! Thanks for this great post!! ✨✨✨

gotcha908google standing rock medic council. they are in dire need of supplies and have a link on their web page to donate products through an Amazon wish list.

madison.condonOkay but none of the pipeline is going on reservation land. That claim is false, as is the fact that the native Americans did not agree to the pipeline

micro.gramReading, learning and growing one's mind is never a waste of time. Good job you're doing there, Glen. Nevermind the fellows unfolowing at mid-course.

tapetenwechsel@glenefriedman and talking about educating yourself: watch any bbc documentary by adam curtis ('hypernormalisation', 'the trap', century of self'). worth the hours of screentime.

whereeaglesdare79@madison.condon its all on native land. Read up on it. You are wrong. This is the third time since 1840 that the US govt has broken the treaty.

betsyboo43Thanks Glen! Tried to call the White House Today! The comment line is disabled until Monday. The poor girl on the only live line wouldn't/couldn't help or direct you:(

madison.condon@whereeaglesdare79 it's on private property where the owners of the land consented to the pipeline. Personally I'm not in favor and there IS police brutality which isn't ok but it is not on native reservation land

standinglone_eagle1That's right happy thanksgiving

thedronesofficial@glenefriedman nothing pisses meat heads off more than the V word, coz they know what they're doing is unnecessary

xbigcodex389... The number of meetings local authorities and government had with 50+ local tribes to discuss the path of the DAPL over two years ago. This pipeline is not intruding Sioux land and will have no affect on local drinking water. Pipelines are by far the safest way to transport energy fuels and gases.8.... The number of current pipelines that cross the Missouri River carrying thousands of barrels of fuel a day. #FACTCHECKDAPL

christopher_hobsonPreach @glenefriedman. It is an atrocity, police and town and state have been bought. I recently heard crop dusters are even dropping chemicals on these peaceful protestors now, the authorities are pulling out every stop and every experimental weapon to basically bulldoze and nullify the people. Keep talking and give the people a voice, they only want safe water for the next generation, these pipes leak all the time. And for those who don't believe, educate yourself people, the term "google it" couldn't be more potent right now! Search YouTube, there are a lot of people covering this and taking risks to do it. There is absolutely no mainstream media coverage.

mickomanicKeep it up

mattersnotThank you @glenefriedman


andy_rangerthis is a great post ! ⚡πŸ’₯

darth_mahtoAlso try and actually get out and meet and talk to Native people and learn something. Don't rely on the Internet to always be 100% accurate. There's a lot of false info floating around out there.

k2thahTake this pipeline and shove it straight up your ass ETP.

surfpunk71Thank you @glenefriedman. Knowledge is power. None of this crap would be needed if we could overthrow the financial restraints and use hemp oil or algae based bio fuels. It's all πŸ’²πŸ’² and corruption. #standwithstandingrock #forksoverknives #cowspiracyfilm

oldskaterratPeople are stupid.


• tattoojoriscowards indeed.. afraid to think what it is ur doin, and who ur doing it for..


• glenefriedmanFor idiots (and cool new comers) who ask "how do vegans enjoy ThanksGiving dinner?" Like most people lucky enough to be able to celebrate, with tons of incredible food stacked on my plate a few times and motherfucking crazy amounts of desert too... all VEGAN , from the obvious vegetables and grains, to "shredded unicorn" and "tofurkey" with stuffing , pumpkin pie, coconut cream pie, chocolate cake, gelato and sorbet + more i didnt choose to put on my plate, this is how we fucking do it, just fine. No over destruction of the environment, no cruelty to animals, no cancer causing flesh or dairy foods... all good, open you mind and look into it. This is not a religious quest, this is an educational one, so stop saying some religious figure of your imagination told you to eat animals, or you believe the propaganda put into our schools and medical universities to convince people of the need for the now unnecessary Animal foods just so they could profit and not give a shit about you, its just like cigarettes were and coal is, use them at your own peril, we know better now, but so many are too weak or greedy to look at the truth. Your loss and the worlds, becuase i am sure most of you mean well, but you're just so afraid of change, truth and science... This is how we do. #VeganThanksGiving #intelligence #education #peopleoverprofits #foodnotbombs #cmonAlready #integrity #inspiration #vegan #truth #stuffedWithGoodHealtyFood do your self a favor follow @Cowspiracy and watch the film tonight or ASAP for the easy quick answers... or search on your own ✌🏽️πŸ’š✊🏽

scotttowneSay it loud, brother! πŸ™ŒπŸ»πŸ™ŒπŸ»πŸ™ŒπŸ» Had the Gardein Brand vegan "turkey" today myself.

mmoorestudios@glenefriedman with all due respect, seriously not slinging turds, if you don't want to eat animals, why do you want something to taste like animals?

purplenegativesTonight I had my 21st vegan Thanksgiving dinner. Happy Thanksgiving, @glenefriedman, thanks for speaking up for the voiceless.

indianajensen@mmoorestudios as a child most people grow up eating meat (like myself). We still have the taste for meat, but don't wish to harm the animals that produce that flavor. Instead, as vegans, we can eat foods that taste like meat that are animal free. Every once in a while I have a taste for chicken nuggets as I always had them as a child. Now when I want some, I can make some vegan ones!

kineticskateboarding❤️πŸ‘ŠπŸŒ½πŸŠπŸ† thanks for being an inspiration @glenefriedman

tae0neYou take classic pics but no need to be a dick to people with dif lifestyle choices. Not very punk tho.

glenefriedman@mmoorestudios most animal foods we grew up eating have the taste they do because of the sauces and other flavorings... and on this holiday it's easier for some people to have similar sensations WITHOUT contributing to destruction of the environment, our bodies, or the needless torture and slaughter of the animals. The "comfort" foods are not a crime. And i never said you can't enjoy particular flavors if anyone wants, its just how you get them and how your body works with them. ✌🏽️

settheraytopeterHow many vegans does it take to change a light bulb?


sandceanKill 'Em All I say... humans, plants, animals... earth...


mmoorestudios@glenefriedman While I don't agree with you on this topic, I admire your passion and conviction. It could be my Texas redneck runs too deep, I don't know. Know that while we don't agree on THIS topic, I share many of your other beliefs. ☮️❤️

glenefriedman@tae0ne actually i am trying to improve the world we live in for all, and yelling about what is wrong is about as punk as it gets in my book. If a lifestyle (knowingly) revolves around hate, prejudice, ignorance, greed, destruction of the environment, it deserves no respect and will get none from me. If thats being a dick in your eyes, so be it. πŸ˜‡

tae0ne@thellmon yawnnn I aint see none those. I just saw homie calling out people who eat meat as idiots. Good luck with your privileged crusade tho.

mmoorestudiosAnd I mean that with no overt hippy overtones

skidulsAs punk as it gets!! πŸ‘ŠπŸΌ❤️

tae0neIf you want win people over maybe dont call them idiots. If you want to be a part of a cultural circle jerk then do as you are. Pun intended.

glenefriedman@tae0ne i only call people idiots who don't understand and freak out when they hear you're Vegan on this holiday and don't understand that most of what we eat at a healthy thanksgiving table is vegan by default anyway. No hard feelings homie. ✌🏽️ live and learn, peep that flick!


romanticize_meCoolest dude


topshelfcustomcyclesReally love the photos you made, Glen. Some of the most memorable of our generation. Haven't seen anyone capture that era as real and raw as you have. Your work is truly inspiring. Please, keep up the post of your early photo work. They are the post that mean the most.

erich_x_x_x_tattooStanding up and living your convictions is punk as fuck!

capricecraneHappy Thanksgiving, fam. Love you. #vegan4lyfe


thellymon@seab00t peace and blessings, dont get mad, we can all live together

ashlovesmongoVegan Thanksgiving is the best! This is my 21st, don't miss the dead stuff in the least.

thellymon@seab00t its passion for his values, hes trying to build on something that can only help others.

thellymon@seab00t only difference is theyre based on hate for others instead of love, get over it

thellymon@seab00t youre stereotyping people exactly as you say vegans do, so technically youre being just as hypocritical. everyones different and thats ok, but dont equate caring for hatefulness, because even though vegans (not all vegans are real vegans btw) may come off as being pompous jackasses, theyre only trying to help and care about animals, people and mother nature. So how is it a bad thing?

glenefriedman@seab00t "you people"? Cmon man, just read back what i said, calm down, its a fucking holiday, trying to inspire greatness and better things... "don't hate celebrate!" Sorry you've run into some vegan fascists, it happens, but if you think I'm full of shit, then just move on, but if you like the work why not take some simple advice? Watch the @cowspiracy let vegans enjoy their meals too. Delete your negative misinformed responses... they are not cool... I'll be deleting all the TG posts later anyhow ✌🏽️

xseanbonnerxHilarious how bummed out people get trying to defend their indefensible bullshit.

bob56kPeople can't handle the truth.

kylo_408I like bacon

absinthefilmsI like turtles

erinred_@glenefriedman thank you glen - I had no idea you were vegan and this is fucking radical.


glenefriedman@seab00t haaa haaa you're just being silly now, did you watch COWSPIRACY or FORKS OVER KNIVES? It's not about faith its about science and compassion, but go ahead and skip the facts if you like, but stop posting if you got nothing positive to add - you think my posts have been passive aggressive yet you can only point to stereotypes... do a little research open minded, I dare you πŸ˜‡

olivejoshTastes like chicken! (Not really)

manaboutldnVegan confirms stereotype that they can't stop telling everyone they are vegan πŸ˜•

wordisjustawordTrump or turkey?!? Nice work this was rad!!!

djrosednaI've been vegan since 89 and make no excuses for any of this bs they throw. I like what tastes good. If that's "like meat" then whatever. Sorry you don't like that. That's a weak as fuck entry level ruse to avoid the point of the discussion. I don't mind putting ignorance in its place with vehemence if need be. If they're opinion can't handle a strong and truthful argument without calling foul, then what can you say? I'm also probably one of the rare breed who can argue on spiritual terms. I'll take on any of these level one religious flunkies any day. It's been my specialty for a long long time. I run every day and go to the gym so you can shelf that anemic weakling statement for some hipster new jacks. Veganism done correctly is a mind body and spirit path with nothing but benefits for the self and society. Myself and many others have been so jazzed today with all the people we've seen online bringing up this liberation ethic with there posts today. Thank you from us for being a voice for the voiceless today. The arc of humanity will bend towards compassion if we just keep up the pressssssssure!


glenefriedman@djrosedna ✊🏽✌🏽️

spothound@glenefriedman sorry for a quiz, but who is your current favorite skater? No holds barred, who's style do you like the best?



mc1vorMy mom always used to ask "why does that book say fuck you" I finally showed it too her and she loved it! Haha hope you had gravy Glen! Happy Thanksgiving!

the_bondsmanIt strikes me that some people seem so quick to judge with short sighted comments claiming that something like "vegaism" can be done "correctly" and that others are just "doing it wrong." Is that not like like saying that a "religious experience" can be done "correctly." Not to be rude but maybe we ought to step back and fucking get over ourselves, plane and simple. I'll tell you first hand that if we think that animal husbandry done well and with moral commitment isn't also a "mind, body and spirit path" we are being intentionally closed minded, arrogant and are a world class turds. I encourage us all to get off our soap box, get out of our echo chamber of social media friends and extend a hand/cup of coffee or tea to those that think different than us. I don't have the answer, you don't have the answer but I'd bet we could find something that we agree on and go fro there.

jonnysurferLooks so great!!!

frankalpineVEGAN πŸ––πŸ»

sicker_than_your_averagecretinI'm not vegan. Alot of my friends are. Can also say that if you take the time and do everything right, you'd never know you weren't eating meat. It all comes down to one's personal choice. Do it, or don't. Simple as that. But don't get on social media and rant and rave how people who don't eat meat are weird, or its some way linked to some religious aspect. Simply put, you don't need to kill something to live. It's true. Wish I had the strength and conviction to live it, but I don't. So if you're gonna be closed minded, just don't comment. Rant complete! Lol!

patriciomiguelulloaDont suffer fools @glenefriedman you rule.

raineydaydelibNew fan ❤

drmattasticEating meat is a personal choice. It seems that simple if you're not aware of the environmental impact. Watch "Before the Flood" or "Cowspiracy" or any of the other documentaries that point out the many ways that the meat industry is destroying the world. Once you have educated yourself you will realize that eating meat is a personal choice that impacts everyone and everything on earth. If you are aware of the consequences and continue to eat omnivorously then you're destroying the environment because you selfishly enjoy the taste of meat. I'm not talking about warmer winters, or deforestation in a foreign land that you'll never see. I'm talking about mass extinction. I used to enjoy the taste of animals but now I realize that it was incredibly selfish and cruel. I'm ashamed of my youthful ignorance. @glenefriedman - not that you need my approval but saying whatever you want whenever you want is absolutely punk as fuck. So spread the word and save the world. πŸ—£✌🏾️🌎

• jimsphotosDude nobody is talking shot except you. The food I got was local organic meat that lived in a pasture. It was great. Stop judging other because your opinion is worthless.

glenefriedman@jimsphotos hey jimbo, many people ask what the fuck do you eat, how do you enjoy TG, this was my reply, do as you like, but if my opinion or what i present is not of interest, it's just fine if you don't follow, I'm not here for your entertainment ✌🏽️

rickbringI feel like the only people that get offended by something as meaningless as turkey and meat are....Wait for it..... Americans. Such an angry bunch

mettauniverseJim has a good point. What about people who raise free range organic anti biotic free animals in a humane and environmentally friendly manner? Not everyone supports industrial farming. It isn't so black and white. I think if my immigrant grandparents who's country was literally almost starved to death by Russia. They luckily got out of there, made a life in the USA and worked hard and enjoyed meat all their lives. They are in their mid 90's now and outlived many of their friends by decades. I'm sure the movies you recommend watching make some great points but again there are other perspectives to look at this issue from. I know vegans an vegetarians who had to go back on meat because they became anemic or had other health problems. It's a complex issue that really depends on the individuals physical, spiritual and intellectual circumstances so pushing a movie or two with one point of view just won't cut it in my opinion. I do think that starting your post off using language like "idiots" is unwise as it will immediately put people in the defensive as it's insulting. I get the vibe that many believe that being "punk rock" is about provocation but provocation just puts people on the defensive. If you want to educate people or share your beliefs wouldn't you want to use language and an attitude that fosters RECEPTION instead - or is that not cool and not punk?


benpowellmusicDamn straight πŸ‘ŠπŸ½πŸŽ‰πŸ»πŸ€˜

wagnerworkshopLotta people are offended just like their ideas about "Gods" are easily bruised...

glenefriedman@mettauniverse i appreciate your long thought out reply, some others replied to "humane" killing, really does not make sense to most, especially when unnecessary in this day and age, seriously, why raise the animals to kill anyway, gross. Anyway the only post i started with idiots was a reply to people berating vegan choices as stupid or self righteous when the meal can so obviously be friendly to the planet, and unselfish as meat eating is. OMG no turkey no animals what are we supposed to eat people would ask, while putting down harshly those who care about the environment and some the animals lives... that was my reply. I hope for better, it's not about a movie or two, these were SIMPLE tools of education. I speak frankly, sometimes its seen as harsh some times passionate, it depends on what you're coming to the table with. Being vegan is clearly a choice, clearly a minority position, so occasionally needs some harsh language surrounding it to wake people up, strong points are strong points, punk, hip hop, skateboarders, we are mostly an open minded bunch breaking down traditional barriers in life and in the mind. Some in their older years have fallen back on easier paths of not questioning or continuing to look for better on this planet, that's there prerogative, but my calling is to inspire better whatever it takes. I make mistakes sometimes, can be harsh others. Fuck it, lets all just do something, do the best we can. Continuing old ways that destroy the environment? No we all can do better. Learn about it and you will see where my passion comes from ✌🏽️

prographix_bknyI'm new to the game, but definitely get it... especially since I am a Brooklyn born Italian and most friends and family are amazed that there are things that I can actually eat...

warranessYour post was inspiring to me.. I'm digging in the vegan vault.. Change is good & Clean change is better..!

syn1cThis was my first Thanksgiving as a vegan and it was awesome! In a family of meat eating people it felt really great to know I didn't contribute to the slaughter of innocent animals.

mettauniverseThanks for the reply. I'd like to address the "why raise animals just to kill them" question. My answer is - NATURE. Nature is a food chain and something is always eating something else otherwise earth would be a bleak lifeless landscape. Animals raised humanely are usually harvested humanely where there is no anticipation or pain felt. Humans are either putting dead flesh or dead plants etc into their systems to stay alive. There's strong science that shows plants have intelligent consciousness just like animals. Shit, indigenous cultures see some plants of the psychedelic type as actual Gods and consume them to commune with them- and if you have ever taken any yourself I'm sure you can attest there is some higher intelligence in them from what you experience and see. We raise and rip all kinds of vegetation from the ground and stuff them down our throats. Lots of vegetarian crops are super destructive to the planet as well wasting way to much water. It's super complex. And stopping industrial farming alone won't save the planet. Nuclear meltdowns, air pollution, mountains of industrial plastics filling the ocean, global warming turning the oceans into an acid bath, fossil fuel usage and on and on - again not black and white - lots of gray complexity in between. I think if you see veganism as something positive that you want to promote for the better of the planet and people it would be more prudent to promote it in an equallypositive way knowing you will get negative resistance and not stooping down with it and coming off as angry and defensive. I commend you for taking on the task of being a minority in this respect and speaking out and trying to educate but don't let it make you bitter cuz it will nullify any good intentions.

glenefriedman@mettauniverse not to be negative, your politeness is definitely appreciated, but just watch that one film COWSPIRACY it's on Netflix if you have that, you can find it. As a caring human i KNOW you will learn from it, just from your reply i see caring , but also see some areas you could use some further education in, no hard feelings, I wasn't born knowing what i know now. Check it out, if you get anything out of my work do me the favor and check that out πŸ‘ŠπŸ½ - and if you are inspired by that there are Many more sources of good information, films, books, webpages, lots. Check it out, i even have a page on my website that might be a good intro ✌🏽️

mettauniverseI will watch it and I'll let you know what I think.


• glenefriedmanLong day of great food and friends and some shit heads on instagram too, no big deal, trying to continue to inspire better things for the planet and all of our lives. #tempposts #holiday @cowspiracy #environment #holidayMemes


haxelle.princessomg love this meme. so trueπŸ˜‚

wandering_feetThrow that shit it the trash.

neckdeepnetWhy is it so hard for people to learn about positive change? I suppose all revolutionary ideas make people uncomfortable and nervous. But that doesn't make it any less true...

mtbrdanNobody is losing there mind. Do wha cha like.

johnnyscott68The honey ham was much better✊

erikmurrowIt's amazing to me "non vegetarian or vegan" that people are bothered by what others eat. Most of the vegan food I eat is amazing... ignorance will remain sadly.

sludgebabyI love you Glen


gildedlily_Keep it up @glenefriedman you're an inspiration


vudumiciaSorry about the negativity. I always enjoy your posts. Then again people like the dope above calling people cunts and not very smart really don't help. People are alway much harsher on their "peers" than they are others. If we all treated each other as nice as we'd treat ol' G'ma despite our lifestyle differences we'd be better off. No ones yelling at grandma ;)

roskotbWas so nice to eat and watch a movie together- thank you for pumpkin pie and a lovely day, G! Slow and steady wins the race! That was my favourite Thanksgiving yet 😘😘

codyliraNo. No one is "losing their mind" over it.

theohandI'm thankful your your contribution to my life @glenefriedman

jackhavlicheckYour too Punk Rock for me Glen. #seeya πŸ‘‹


glenefriedman@therealkenbone2016 @jackhavlicheck if progressive left and environmentalism is reason for you to leave or see me as a kooked, well that says a lot about you as well, and I don't understand how you can like the images i create and the artists in them if that's what you think... but pray for us all! #seeya ✌🏽️I'll pick people and the planet over profits every fucking time, you can take that to the bank ✊🏽

mcw813^^^✊✊✊πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™couldn't have said it better myself.

mcw813@jackhavlicheck *you're


manaboutldnIt's because you've told them you're eating tofu for the 1,000,000,000,000th time

terrizillafuck those instagram fools- you are rad and your shit is spot on....


degenerate._danI want to be prepared exactly like a thanxgiv'n turkey for my funeral πŸ—

thinkwooddesignMate love your work

olivejoshMy bad... respect. Hot pink by meat puppets

chrisbourkeartI've been a vegetarian for 30yrs and a vegan for 20 of those yrs and I don't think posting these things changes anybody's mind about anything, but rock on G.




bensnellHey @glenefriedman I don't give a fuck what you choose to eat! To each his own brother! Happy Thanksgiving! God bless

michellekenvinSocial media is great. Quickest way to lift up the rock and shine a light on all the insects underneath it. Weed 'em out. Happy Thanksgiving!

marquezninedeuceI respect you for the simple fact you photographed the suicidal tendencies πŸ’―


hide_the_bodies@glenefriedman I can fully support a vegetarian thanksgiving but I'll be damned if I ever had a Good tofurkey brother. Keep up the inspirational work, thankful to have all your photos to look at over the years.

whitelinepsychoEven when I hate you I love you.

settheraytopeterI'm a person just like you, but I've got better things to do

• shaun_oconnorKeep speaking your mind Glen if people can post pics of their turkey dinners all damn day then why can't vegetarians and vegans be proud of their diets and kitchen accomplishments? If fools unfollow you for expressing your beliefs then perhaps they had nothing in common with you to begin with? No loss.
