The vegan challenge 2015. It's happening!

The rabble.ca vegan challenge launched today for Earth Day, and it runs until the 29th. Vegan resources, information, and most importantly recipes. If you're in the mood, share your ideas and recipes with us on our facebook page, or check out our vegan challenge blog. Here's the first post of this year's challenge, with more to come.

Will any babblers be taking this up? I'm looking forward to reading the discussion.

Sexual and reproductive health

As the Male circumcision thread was going nowhere good, I've decided to open a thread for people who want to continue the discussion of invasive medical procedures that affect our sexual and reproductive health. For those who wish to discuss FGM, which is very different, check out threads in the Feminist Forum.

Please, let's start fresh and keep it respectful folks.

HPV Vaccine should be free for everyone

 Its disgusting that the HPV vaccine isn't free for everyone in Ontario. Boys are discriminated against as are older people, it only free for young girls, boys need not apply, even though it causes all kinds of different cancers in men, throat cancer, penile Cancer and in the case of gay men anal cancer (which also makes this homophobic).

 Free HPV vaccines for everyone! People are dying for fuck sakes!
