so cool jay z and beyonce are going vegan!
i like the term ‘plant based’.
+ i deleted the negative part of this post cuz i remembered not to ever say anyhting negative on the internet and for good reason
i would like to point out, however, that just because someone has worn animal products or eaten animal products in the past doesn’t make them evil if they choose to change. I think changing and growing is natural and commendable. I would like to point out that you are bullying would-be vegans away from veganism because of things they did before they were vegan.
promoting animal rights should not be about cool points or impressing others or the ‘right’ to call urself an animal activist. Because veganism isn’t about you. Not eating animal products isn’t a personal ‘accomplishment’. It is about protecting and sustaining the world at whatever cost. I would never, ever ever tell someone they were being fake or hypocritical for deciding to do something positive for the earth, even if they hadn’t always done it. I would certainly not be mad if I had been doing it longer, or more rigorously.
I suggest that we stop hating each other over the usage of a word. I am not going to address this anymore. again, i would like to point out the absurdity of this situation: animal rights activists are criticizing people for attempting to stop or reduce their consumption of animal products.
