Hi! I’m Kelly.
After studying at the Gallifrey Academy for a few years, I set out on an adventure, and found myself on a mining ship running from giant bugs. I decided that was about as much screaming and running as my lungs could handle so I came to this Earth place for a little vacation, and I wound up at Starfleet Academy, where I just completed my studies in human Visual Culture & Communications.
As a trekkie I am fighting for a United Earth, and making that happen starts with making sure our that planet can sustain us in the century to come, so share the word that our livestock rearing produces more greenhouse gas emissions than all transportation and go plant-based (amazing for your health too)! Moreover, we will not make it to an egalitarian (which necessarily means empathetic) United Earth of justice without the golden rule: “Do unto others as you would have them do to you.” Like racism and sexism and all other discriminations that enable needless violence, speciesism must end. Riker: “We no longer enslave animals for food purposes.” T’Pol: “You humans claim to be enlightened, yet you still consume the flesh of animals.” Janeway, regarding vivisection: “What you’re doing isn’t self defense. It’s the exploitation of another species for your own benefit. My people decided a long time ago that that was unacceptable – even in the name of scientific progress.” If you have not seen the documentary Earthlings, it is free to view on earthlings.com and it will shatter what you think you know — what is kept from our eyes behind closed doors is shocking and indefensible and we must know about it. You are also welcome to check out the resources on the health and environmental reasons so many people are adopting plant-pure diets and the ethical reasons many are refusing to partake in any animal exploitation and are demanding animal liberation here :) Ultimately, slavery is wrong and needless violence is wrong, so we must fight for animal liberation!
Live long and prosper!
