I’m not a vegan blog but I am a helluva vegan so here’s my two cents..
The vegan tag is blowing up because meat-eaters are starting to realize that vegans aren’t absurd idealistic hippies living off the grid in remote areas. We are everywhere, we make sense, and we aren’t going away. The arguments for our lifestyle are stacking up, the facts are all around, and we cannot be silenced. The world is shifting in favour of a plant based diet, and no bacon jokes or juvenile trolling are going to change that. All the “anti-vegan” spam consists of bizarre hypothetical situations and strawman arguments, it’s defensive.
The vegan tag is full of bullshit and hate now and it’s annoying because it was once a place of community and a medley of recipes, but the silver lining is when you really look at it; it’s just a bunch of meat-eaters writhing in cognitive dissonance. It’s people trying to justify eating meat by demonizing those who thrive living compassionately. It’s sheer denial, grasping at straws, the sad end of a debate where the loser just keeps saying “but but but but” and resorts to childish jokes.
I see the hate as a small victory, even if it’s just on tumblr, even if it’s just under one tag. There are so few vegans in the world, but quite a few on tumblr, and they’re doing something right.
TL;DR I eat plants and love all the vegans on tumblr and am lolling at the vegan tag
I will go back to posting black and white shit now!
