This is why I’m a vegan environmentalist

  1. That’s a pretty bold statement… Considering that people who eat meat and live a non-activist life don’t exactly endorse the clubbing of baby seals, mass polution of our oceans, torture of animals and shooting birds randomly for fun. These are things these industries hide and nobody would deal with, non-vean non-activist or not, if they knew about it. Videos like this and labels like “vegan activist” just make people look at you funny and think you’re going to preach at them for not being one… I can only hope you’re not one of those people who does exactly that.

  2. Thank you for your comment! Do you think I sound preachy? Why would that be a problem for you?

    When I ate meat and was a non-activist, I didn’t endorse these things consciously, but I did endorse them with my actions, my ignorance, and my lack of protest at what I knew was wrong. Once I opened my eyes and educated myself about the impact my lifestyle was having on others, I became a vegan environmentalist. So, yes, it is a bold statement, but it’s my truth.

    I didn’t label myself with the words “vegan activist” but that does sound accurate. Sometimes labels are correct, and not derogatory. 🙂 I don’t care if anyone looks at me funny for having compassion and decrying violence. I think I’d rather be a moral person than a popular one. This post wasn’t meant as a judgement of others, but as a visual explanation of why I personally chose to become a vegan environmentalist.
