Open Letter From a Vegan

My friend shared a photo on facebook saying, “An atheist, a vegan and crossfitter walk into a bar. I only know because they told me within two minutes.” Anyone else find that kindof offensive, not all vegans do that.  And not all vegans are judgemental, and tell everyone they meet.

No one at school, besides my roommate (but she still thinks I’m a vegetarian), knows that I’m vegan.  People have suspected it when I made vegan cupcakes or I ordered a vegetarian taco from a mexican restaurant or said no to free pizza. I don’t hide the fact that I am, but I’ve never told anyone specifically, mainly because I’m not a huge fan of answering a million questions. Including but not limited to, “Why?”, “Where do you get your protein?”, “Don’t you miss meat?”, “What would happen if you accidentally ate meat?” ect.  To answer that and all other questions, “None of your business, cause I am.  And why would you care.”

That and then when you do politely answer those questions, some people then say that you are pushy and are pushing your views on them. When you didn’t really want to answer those questions but were kindof forced to.

  1. Only the new vegans do that (I think). I sure as heck did.

    As I became more comfortable in my own skin, my SELF (and my family) became the walking billboard for being vegan. Happy, healthy, strong, and compassionate to EVERY one and thing, it kind of sells itself. To date, I’ve not met a single other vegan where I live, so I have to wear it well. The animals deserve an approachable yet vocal advocate.

    Smiles open many more doors than harsh, judging words, I find. If you’ve not read “Do You Mind If I Order The Cheeseburger?” by Sherri Colb yet, I highly recommend it. Cheers!
