Being a vegan while living in the United States food system is a class issue. It is also a choice. Having celiac’s disease is not a choice. Processed food is cheaper (especially in urban areas) than fresh food, and processed food is rarely vegan. A healthy vegan diet takes a lot of money and time - something that working class people in urban areas don’t have a lot of. You make some good points - everyone eats vegetables, historically, meat has been a status symbol (it’s not anymore, not in the US, land of the dollar menu - which, by the way, is where many poor people can turn in order to get the calories they need to work in demanding, physical labor-intensive jobs at a price they can afford). The original argument was about some privileged people, including vegans, who try to act like their diet made them morally superior in some way to people who don’t eat it. Not all vegans are like that - but your response shows a lack of awareness about how things like food deserts work. Being vegan is a choice, and it’s one that is often dictated by class.
that vegetarian thing pleased me greatly. i’ve been waiting for someone to do that.
being on the computer can make me so paranoid
Stay close to anything that makes you glad you are alive.
