Yoo vegan side of tumblr I need your help! I’m thinking of starting a vegan diet (except I’d eat fish sorry I love fish) but with one cheat day and yeah I need some tips about getting started thanks!
Umm. That’s not veganism, at all. Not even close….
I hope you aren’t talking about me
damn if this is the kind of shit I get said to me because I wanna change my diet and be health fuck it
I sure as fuck am.
I couldn’t give any less of a fuck about your health.
Veganism isn’t about health, nor is it a diet.
It is a lifestyle of choosing life over death. Freedom over suffering. Equality over exploitation.
So when you come to people who truly care about animals, with some bullshit about a “cheat day”, and still murdering other animals, then yea, I’m going to call you an idiot.
you’re better off looking at some health food or fitspo blog, you can’t ask a vegan to help you do exactly what they don’t want people to do, that’s kinda our whole thing. Vegans are tired of having to explain the difference between veganism and a plant based diet. Healthy eating != veganism, and you’re not the first person to come around asking for help while non-chalantly mentioning that you aren’t intending on doing it COMPLETELY because it’s hard. You want to ask a vegan for help but you don’t even bother understanding the principles behind veganism,you’re clearly uninterested in anything else but your gain, why would anyone in the “vegan side of tumblr” want to help you out?
Dietary Vegans vs. Ethical Vegans
You can follow a “vegan diet” without being a vegan. But you can’t be a vegan without a vegan diet.
"People choose to be vegan for health, environmental, and/or ethical reasons. For example, some vegans feel that one promotes the meat industry by consuming eggs and dairy products. “
"A vegan (pronounced VEE-gun) is someone who, for various reasons, chooses to avoid using or consuming animal products.”
