• Vegan Troubles!

    So I recently decided to go Vegan, and although my family doesn’t like that very much, they accept it (for the most part). That’s really great and everything, but absolutely NOONE I know is vegan, or even thinks of animals as someones and not somethings. People think I’m weird, title-seeking, in a phase, etc. I know a lot of vegans have gone through this, is there any advice you guys could give me to deal with it and maybe even sway some of my friends and family to be vegan or vegetarian?
    PS ( I have gone vegan before, and ultimately failed because I just caved. I am totally into this, and I don’t want to screw anything up. I’m just afraid my family or friends will talk me out of it).

    Just explain that your only vegan cos well… Ask them if they would like to be beaten, separated from their parents, then finally given a slow painful death and then eaten. You could also just say its what you believe and its your choice to be vegan or not.

    How do I explain my life story in 140 characters or less? So I am Shannon, I am currently a sophomore and I am a proud vegan. I am vegan because I do not want to support animal cruelty. Harry Potter fanatic and I am most likely the awkwardest person you'll ever meet. I play the piano a lot. Proud introvert by day, protagonistic butterfly by night.
