Don’t call out rich asshole vegans for referring to small designer handbags as “affordable”. They don’t like it.
My local vegan facebook group has a lot of people who spend money rather frivolously - which wouldn’t brother me, whatever, it’s your money - but then they refer to their extravagant purchases as smart, affordable, baseline. We live in one of the poorest cities in the country so I really don’t fucking get it (although gentrification has been working its “magic” here a lot in the past decade).
It’s, idk, it’s just kind of creepy, because it reminds me that some people purposely ignore the lower/working class. So I try to throw in a mention like “these are very well designed, but it’s okay to say that it’s NOT actually affordable for everyone! And you can still buy decent quality goods at lower prices”. They can’t just go on their day, or say “right, my bad!” they gotta make it a whole thing about that if you don’t agree something’s affordable for everyone, you’re being difficult and rude.
I’m being rude? You don’t think poor people exist. One’s more of an issue.
Just, please, stop calling luxury goods “affordable” because you sound stupid. You’re just saying it’s affordable for the people you allow to exist in your world.
