Vegans who say becoming an ethical vegan is sooooooo easy for everyone is lying. Don't insult people's intelligence. How dare you tell someone who has been a vegan for years that it was actually easy but they just didn't know it. How eff'ed up is that?!
That's a problem I have with people who are in social justice movements--people lie. Just because it was easy for you and me, doesn't mean it's easy for every single person on this planet--DEAL WITH IT. Sorry but it's true. If they say it was or is difficult for them then it is--for them.
And just because it's difficult for them, doesn't mean it's not right for them. If someone wanted to lose weight and found it hard, it doesn't mean they should stop, because in the end, it would be beneficial and the right thing to do--same as becoming vegan.
Vegans, stop deluding yourselves, lying to people and yourselves by saying becoming vegan--and not just by diet mind you, but with getting cruelty-free products, clothing, footwear, everything , is soo easy. Hell, if it was that easy, everyone would be 100% vegan in everything--transportation we drive, we would never step on ants or any small creatures, etc. That in itself is hard to accomplish.
That's why we say being vegan is about doing the best we can, because as we live NO ONE can be 100% vegan. Why? because it would be too difficult. So vegans stop with the lies and just be honest with people. We will help a lot more people become vegan and save more animals' lives if we are honest with people and help them in any way we can to become vegan.
If you have not done so already, please read my previous blogpost, as it relates to this one.
