Category Archive: The Netherlands

Here are all the SuperVegan blog posts categorized under The Netherlands. XML

  1. “Excessory Baggage” by Meryl Smith

    Too much news piling up, so I’m just gonna spew it atcha:

  2. The Dutch will do all sorts of things to sheep.

    The Dutch will do all sorts of things to sheep.

    The New Zealand Centre for Human-Animal Studies has released “Cruelty-Free Consumption in New Zealand: A National Report on the Perspectives and Experiences of Vegetarians & Other Ethical Consumers” (108 page PDF). It profiles 157 people (I know, but that’s probably a big percentage of the population down there) on how and why they live animal-friendly lives. Stuff has a report on the sex-related findings and the coinage of the word “vegansexual” for people who will only fuck other vegans.

    Did you notice how I avoided making any sheep jokes in the New Zealand story? Here’s why: In more disturbing sex news, a man who raped a sheep in the Netherlands had his case thrown out of court, as the sheep was unable to testify that she “didn’t want to have sex and had suffered emotional stress.” Bestiality is only a crime there unless it can be proven that the animal didn’t want to have sex. It sounds like the Partij voor de Dieren has some work to do!

  3. Dutch falafel chain Maoz opened their first New York City location today, on the already very veg-friendly Union Square.

    Their slogan “Feel Your Falafel” gives me chilling thoughts of Bill O’Reilly, but the staff is friendly and the food is very good. The falafel itself is flavorful, tender, and well above average. After you get your sandwich, there’s a large selection of self-serve toppings – pickles, cucumber salad, roasted cauliflower, dairy and vegan coleslaws, carrots, baby eggplants dyed in beet juice (really), olives, several fresh hot sauces, and much more. The trick is they don’t leave very much spare room in your sandwich, so you can’t really load up on the condiments.

    We’ve added Maoz to our restaurant guide. If you eat there, don’t forget to leave a review! (Oh, and if you’re wondering, the name “Maoz” is pronounced like the condiment, not the Chairman.)

    Update: Or maybe it is pronounced like the Chairman. I’ve heard both with authority from staff.

  4. Marianne Thieme, leader of the Party for Animals

    Marianne Thieme, leader of the Party for Animals

    In recent election results in the Netherlands a party by the name of Partij voor de Dieren (Party for the Animals) managed to gain 1.8% of the vote, and soon will have two seats in Parliament, the NY Times reports. Since its founding in 2002, the party has rapidly gained popularity, and is now making history as the first party (in the world) to campaign for animal rights as an official part of government!

    Their website reads: “The party was founded to promote an awareness of the way in which humans treat animals and to emphasize that this needs to change – in the interest of not only the animals themselves, but also humans and the environment in which we all live.”
