12 Vegan-Friendly Children Movies

It's safe to say that we all grow up in a society that brainwashes us from childhood to adulthood into believing the things that they want us to believe. "It's all what the media wants you to think." This is esspecially true when it comes to animal and animal derived product consumption. We're all raised to believe that drinking milk is great for our bones (I'll have to get into this topic some other time), that meat is the best source of iron and protein for us and that there's such a thing as "humane meat." In reality, of course this is all bulls**t and is only backed up by the companies that profit from our money. Sadly enough, this bull propaganda is exposed to us while we're still doing "wee wee" in our pants.

Thankfully, I will have the privilege and honor of one day raising vegan-born babies and for that, I need to watch what messages I will be showing them. Here is a list of 12 movies that we all grew up watching with great vegan messages that we can show the next generations to come!

1. 101 Dalmatians

One of my favorite movies from my childhood, "101 Dalmatians" is a great movie to show kids with a great vegan message! The villain Cruella De Vil is desperate to get a hold of all these puppies so that she can make a coat out of their fur. A great twist to the fur industry: if we don't have a problem using sheep, snake, alligator or even fox fur to make pretty coats, then why shouldn't we be able to use dog fur?

2. Bambi

It happened to the best of us: there was not a single person that did not cry like a baby when Bambi's mother was shot by a hunter. A classic Disney movie showing just how terrible hunting really is. To us, it's just an animal; to them, it's a family member.

3. Brother Bear

Another hunting related movie, "Brother Bear" is about a hunter who shoots a female bear (a mother) which makes the spirits angry and in turn, they reincarnate him as a bear. He later ends up meeting the baby cub whose mother he killed and forms a brother-like bond with him.

4. Happy Feet

"Happy Feet" is a movie about a group of penguins trying to communicate with humans by tap dancing. The penguins are trying to show humankind that they don't belong in confined shelters such as zoos or aquariums, but rather, in the wild.

5. Madagascar

Another movie much like "Happy Feet" is "Madagascar." It's about a group of wild animals being raised in a zoo and not knowing how to act once placed in the wild.

6. Chicken Run

Much like the title suggests, "Chicken Run" is about a group of chickens that try to run away from the farm they grew up once they realized they would become someone's next meal.

7. Babe

"Babe" is another farm movie about a little atypical pig that would rather be sheepdog compared to someone's dinner. There's also a duck that pretends to be a rooster and three singing mice.

8. Pocahontas

Besides being one of the best Disney movies ever, "Pocahontas" is a great film for vegas-alike. She shows all the newcomers how to respect the forest and take care of the land.

9. Wall-E

This movie. This movie is just too real! Wall-E is the very realistic expectation that will come if us humans don't change our ways. Earth is polluted with trash and deemed unfit to continue harboring the human race, therefore, all humans are now living in a spacecraft completely overrun by robots and technology and everyone is deathly obese.

10. Horton Hears a Who

"Horton Hears A Who" is a great movie to show kids. It's cute, it's fun and has the great message that everyone is important, no matter how small.

11. The Lorax

Another great Dr. Seuss movie, "The Lorax" shows the effects of greed over nature. Animal agriculture nowadays is overrun by money hungry factories. This movie shows just what could happen if we ignore nature and let our greed get the best of us.

12. Bee Movie

"The Bee Movie" is exactly what you'd expect it to be. It's a movie that clearly depicts not only why it's important not to eat honey, but also why we shouldn't use any kind of animal-derived products.

Being a pharmacy technician never held as many risks as it does now. Exposure too hazardous conditions were little to none, and garbing up was only conducted in IV compounding. But, now, in order to give nurses the medications they need to help their patients, they need us, pharmacy technicians.

I've always been a huge Disney villain fan — whether it was for their cryptic one-liners, enviable outfits, or sidekick banter. Some of the most iconic lines from cinematic history have been said by the characters we love to hate and occasionally dress up as once a year.

The fear-mongering Gaston I now find hilariously cringe-worthy is now charming and oftentimes considered by fans as rightfully justified in his actions. Die-hard fans of the Disney villain fan club claim alternate egos in their favorite evil characters, adopting their hilarious witticisms into everyday life.

Social media is something many of us have been addicted to (whether we want to believe it or not) since the moment we got it. I remember getting Facebook at 10. Instantly I was hooked. I loved being able to share my life with people, a little too much in my opinion, and I loved being able to see how/what other people were doing all the time.

I have always felt left out because of how I look and who I am. I have always felt like the elephant in the room, literally. I have always been shamed for my size. For the longest time, I cared so much about what I wear and who I wore certain things in front of. I never wanted to wear shirts that would show a lot of my arm, located above my elbow. I wouldn't wear shorts that didn't go to the tip of my knees, at least. I never wore anything remotely tight, where you could see every curve, roll, or imperfection. I was so insecure about myself, and not many of my friends knew.

I have definitely had my fair share of breakups. I broke up with my high school sweetheart my second semester of college (he was cheating on me), I had a breakup with another guy I thought I was going to marry, and others in between. Regardless of whether you're the one doing the dumping or being dumped, breakups can HURT.

Your Social Activism May Actually Benefit From A Cleansing Social Media Detox

In the craziest year of our lives, sometimes there's value in taking a break.

We are living through, unequivocally, one of the most dangerous, unstable, chaotic periods of any of our lives. From COVID-19 to crises of police brutality to the mass exploitation of the poor by mega-corporations, the world outside seems to be looking more dystopic every day. What can be done about it? For many, activism involves heavily posting on social media to keep others aware. However, this comes with a net negative cost — increased levels of anxiety, depression, and hopelessness about the state of the world. Why might this be? After all, in past eras activists have endured comparable and greater levels of abuse and relentless torment from oppressors. Why, now, are people getting so easily burnt out?

I Asked My Boyfriend His Opinion On Liking Other Girls’ Pictures, And, Spoiler Alert, It's Cheating

"When you get into a relationship and you're in love, you have to realize that liking photos is for the single lifestyle."

Ladies, listen up. If you are in a relationship with a guy and he is liking other girls' pictures on social media, then it's a red flag. A man who can look at someone else and show interest by liking it means he doesn't care about your feelings AT ALL.

5 Things You Need To Know Before You Watch 'Arrested Development' On Netflix

"Her?" Yes, she's an amazing show! (You'll get this joke after you watch the show).


"Arrested Development" is an award-winning sitcom that aired for three seasons on Fox beginning in 2003, and then was picked up by Netflix for a fourth season in 2013, and then again for a final season in 2018.

However, it seems to remain one of the world's most underrated and under-appreciated shows of all time. Although this article alone won't be enough to skyrocket the show to Netflix's top 10, I hope that it will open people's eyes to the value and quality of the show.
