“A vegan was mean to me/ Vegans are assholes.”

If that’s your argument for not becoming a vegan, you are essentially admitting that you are intellectually lazy and unable to make rational, ethical decisions.

Even if every vegan in the world had a personal vendetta against you:

The meat and dairy industry would still be causing animal abuse.

The meat and dairy industry would still be the largest contributors to climate change.

The meat and dairy industry would still be rolling back your rights to free speech through Ag-gag laws.

The meat and dairy industry would still be creating thousands of square miles of ocean dead zones.

The meat and dairy industry would still be exploiting female bodies of animals for pleasure.

The meat and dairy industry would still be keeping marginalized people employed in dangerous, disgusting slaughterhouses.

So if “mean, asshole vegans” are the problem you’re seeing, maybe you’re not looking hard enough.
