WAIW | We’re Not In This Together(?)

Image contains a photo of a man on the left-hand side looking to the top right. The man’s face, shoulders, and left hand are visible, and he’s against a white wall. He has a questioning look on his face, and his hand is resting under his chin.

Just like so many things the magazine discusses, the COVID-19 pandemic is too complicated to use something like "we're all in this together" as a call to action. Read More »

TBT | Our Heroes are (Still) Problematic

Image contains three photographs placed next to each other in three narrow columns. Each photo contains a male looking at the camera, and he is mimicking the gestures for see no evil, hear no evil, and speak no evil in each respective panel. Above the men in the photos, there is white text that says "Our Heroes Are Problematic" and below the men there is text that says "Where Am I Wednesday".

With the future of the next issue and the magazine still up in the air, I thought today would be a good time to throwback to when I discussed the issue of hero worship in relation to Peter Singer and a few others. Read More »

T.O.F.U. #15 | A Preview

Image contains a black background with a yellow circular object coming up from the bottom of the frame. The visible middle portion of the object is missing, and it looks like a mouth. Above the object, there are two blocks of text. The larger one, just below the middle of the image, says "Making Change". The word "Making" is in white, and the word "Change" is in orange. The smaller block of text below says "Will simply eating all the vegan things" in one line and "save the world?" in another. The words "save the world?" are in orange. Just above the text, there is a small brown piece of what looks like ground beef. At the very top of the image, there is text that says "T.O.F.U." in white, and within that text there is more text that says "T.O.F.U. Magazine". The word “T.O.F.U.” is in orange. Just below the white T.O.F.U., there is text that says "Issue 15 Capitalism November 2019”.
