My Thoughts on Aggressive Vegan Activists

Don’t say plant-based you’re either a vegan or you’re not please
Hi, my name is Krista and welcome to my channel today I want to do a video on vegan activism and my thoughts on why some vegans are actually detrimental to the cause so let’s have a little chat shall we people usually decide to go vegan for one or a combination of the following reasons the environment animal welfare and health for those who have strong moral and ethical beliefs behind their veganism which are usually the environmental and animal camp they usually want to spread their message and convert others to their vegan lifestyle fine great makes sense you want to make the world a better place kudos to you it’s great that you have a passion that you believe in and are willing to fight for however I see a lot of things in vegan activism that turn me off from veganism and I am a vegan today I want to run through a list of some of those things and then provide my solutions at the end the first mistake I think people make when trying to convert others to become vegan is coming at it with anger there are plenty examples on YouTube of people harassing others on the street for wearing leather or fur you don’t get light reactions from those being harassed if someone came up to me on the street aggressively saying literally anything I wouldn’t have my mind open to what they were saying especially if they were criticizing me and telling me that I was a killer or a bad person or whatever because it’s something that I’m wearing the person who you’re confronting likely doesn’t even have a clue about what goes on behind the scenes in creating fashion made of animals so to come up to them aggressively and tell them that they’re wrong or sometimes to even possibly throw paint on them or do something to destroy their item of clothing all you’re doing is going to be creating resistance from them think about people in your life is opinions you respect and that you’ll listen to even though you might have differing opinions are those people speaking to you in an aggressive manner are they telling you that you’re wrong and you’re dumb because you think differently than them no they are executing a full sentence which explains why they feel the way they do in a manner of tone where you’re willing to listen so I don’t know why anyone would say yelling at others on the street is a good idea to convert people to begin ISM but this also applies to the clothes that you wear and the message that you’re sending across walking down the street I recently went to the vegan festival they were selling a bunch of t-shirts I have aggressive messages basically saying if you’re not vegan your killer or you know you’re a bad person with knives and blood and like weird on it personally if I was on the subway in New York City and I saw somebody wearing that shirt I wouldn’t think that they were approachable or someone that I could go to and ask you know what’s veganism know what is it why you need like that why is it cruel to animal is it bad for the environment I would probably actually sit on the other side of the subway carts and not sit next to someone who had a pig being watered on their shirt my next point about aggressiveness and anger within activism has to do with vegans being aggressive towards other vegans which is evident all over the internet and why would you want to join a community that is attacking itself you wouldn’t choose friends who you know we’re going to talk behind your back or grant it all over the internet no vegan is better than the next vegan even if you’re only in it for health reasons whether you like it or not you’re still making an impact on the environment and animals and people who are passionate about those two topics should be grateful that you have decided to make the choice that you’ve made even if you didn’t make it for their reason we all have one thing in common we all choose not to consume animal products some of us take it to the next level and then choose not to buy hygiene products or clothing or whatever that also involves animal products the person who’s the perfect vegan isn’t better than the one who is just doing their best every day to maybe eat a few meals a week better vegan or you know only eats vegan but doesn’t not purchase animal products not everyone is at the same level of education or cares about what you care about it doesn’t mean that their actions aren’t working towards your cause if everyone just did a little bit we would have a great result so don’t criticize those who aren’t being perfect or up to your standard and for those of you who are hardcore environmentalist and you lack your passion even ISM is how we’re going to save the world how we’re going to save the environment but you don’t allow other people to express their love for the environment in different ways maybe they’re mediators but they live in a self-sustaining home that they built themselves and they’re passionate about spreading the message of renewable energy and that’s their focus they’re not wrong for expressing their passion in a different way again they don’t need to do it the way you do it you can’t expect all or nothing from others small steps in the right direction from everyone can get us a long way so what’s my solution need by example sometimes I think the best way to get your point across is not to say anything at all your friends will see that you’re leaving a happy healthy lifestyle and want to know what you’re doing I’m going to want to know why you lost 20 pounds or why your skin is looking so good I’ve had plenty of friends and acquaintances who have been really curious about my lifestyle I didn’t even bring it up they just noticed that I asked for things about cheese or said you know no I don’t eat meat or something like that and they wanted to know more and then I can explain to them what my values are and why I the way I do another way that I choose to lead by example is with my clothing item you know I have really cute Angela Roy bags or Matt and NAT bag which I always get compliments on those are both vegan companies that have the same values that I do you see a cute bag that they want and then they go get it so it’s really a win-win for everyone because now I have someone else supporting a vegan company next get educated make sure you have responses to the questions that you’re going to receive from others about your lifestyle as to why you choose to live the way you do and make sure they’re backed up by hard facts people love to push veganism aside at some sort of hippie phase or something that you know those weirdos over there do but it’s not there is scientific fact that there this is a healthier lifestyle the three reasons that I said before that people go vegan animal activism environmental activism or just for health reasons there’s facts behind all three of them so whatever you’re passionate about whether it be one or all three of those things find the information to back it up personally why I believe in all those three things my main reason for going vegan in the first place was health so I’ve read everything I possibly could so that when I get those questions like where do you get your protein from but I heard that high protein is better than low protein well this got on dr. oz said this and someone else said that I have the facts to have a conversation and review what people are saying to me I also have the wherewithal and understanding to know that I’m not a nutritional scientist I’m not a geologist or meteorologist you know I’ve never seen animal cruelty in real life I don’t know everything you also have to keep your mind open to other experiences and other people’s opinions next handle other people’s aggression kindness never fight back or yell at someone who’s getting aggressive with you about their opinions about not eating me eating meat dairy and cheese is a part of cultural norms family traditions and things that have been ingrained in us since we were born so to question the way that somebody’s living they can get aggressive with you there’s no reason that you need to get aggressive back this goes back to my point of saying get educated it’s on what the FAK be kind about it and if they want to be aggressive with you them and the conversation you don’t have to win every battle lastly celebrate small victories as I said before we should have criticized those who aren’t perfect vegans and you don’t live the lifestyle up to the way that you would expect them to but if you have a friend or family member who’s trying to eat you know maybe one vegan meal a day or even once you give me a little week or maybe they went and bought you know a beginning gift for you or something just to show that maybe they’re showing some interest in this lifestyle celebrate that they’ve done that don’t say it’s all or nothing allow them to have a small victory and maybe that small victory will turn into you know a positive herd of vegan anyways that was my video for today I’m just hard to express these feelings to a camera but I hope I got my point across in a way that makes sense you know I personally don’t even really consider myself too much to be an activist for veganism but I also don’t want to see this lifestyle that’s given me happiness and health to be put down by people who are just going about it the wrong way and to close people’s minds to something that I personally think could help them also achieve happiness and health so until next time bye

How Is McDonald’s Different In Sweden?

– I am here to try all the unique things that they have on the menu here, including McVegan. In a country
where one out of 10 people is either vegan or vegetarian, does the burger really
live up to its hype? First off, falafel. In four or nine pieces with yogurt and herb dip. It comes in a little dry packet like that, but then you get the added dipping sauce. You can choose from a
massive selection of them. A little but spicy, like a little
bit herby. It’s really dry. Now for the Chicken and Hummus Salad. The chicken’s cooked really nicely. The whole thing’s got like a really big range of flavors in there. As well as normal fries,
McDonald’s does sweet potato fries. They’re not bad, they’re
just not overwhelmingly sweet potato-y. I think it’s probably just because of the grease and the salt. This is so good. This thing is genuinely
like the king of dips. This is just a peasant
dip, this is the dip king. It looks like a really,
really luxurious dip. Woah! That smells like truffles. It’s got really, really, really truffle-y, mushroom-y aftertaste. It just immediately tastes like a standard McDonald’s mayo. Yes, that is beer on the menu. It’s served in selected
European and Asian countries. What I’m expecting is quite citrus-y, and slight bitterness in the aftertaste. Hoping it actually lives up to that. It’s alright, maybe if you
have really flavorsome food, and you have this too, somehow
it’ll complement each other. It’s really nothing to write
home from Stockholm about. Last, but not least, the McVegan. The patty was developed
specifically for McDonald’s by Anamma, now Orkla
foods, a niche food company from southern Sweden, and
at just 25 Swedish Krona, (that’s $2.75) it’s a bit of a bargain. That yummy looking sauce? It’s got vegan McFeast
sauce in it, and ketchup. So apparently when this
was developed in 2017, what gives it its really,
really quite vibrant red color is the soy protein. It’s mixed with tomato powder, onions, and peppers. So what you’re expecting
from here is quite like a juicy soy protein burger but with quite a strong vegetable
taste to it as well. I think what really helps is
it’s got pickle in it as well. The pickle and the burger
go together really nicely. It’s got some ketchup in there. You can see that it’s got some onions. Yep, quite a bit of pickle actually. It’s not really, really
flavorsome, it just tastes like quite a good standard veggie
burger made of soy protein. It certainly looks very, very impressive. I really like the color of it. The McVegan: probably wasn’t worth coming all the way to Stockholm for. I can understand why people
get really crazy about this, it’s a cool thing on the menu. It’s probably just them
trying to keep up with other really popular
burger chains in Sweden that offer really good
vegetarian/vegan menus. The mayo’s good; best thing
on the menu in my opinion is the garlic dipping sauce. A nice little pot of garlic mayo heaven.

And What If Animals Ruled Us?! | Artist Reverses The Role Of Human And Animals In 30+ Parallel World Illustrations

#Humans are no #doubt the most #intelligent species on planet earth. They have managed to use everything in their surroundings into something of use to them. Some of the exploits have led them to create a hell on earth for other creatures that are exploited for the benefits of humans.
From meeting basic needs to leisure, animals do not know rest in the human-run world. Artist Barbara Daniels is turning the veil by introducing a parallel world where human reverse roles with the animals. What would happen if animals were given the same privileges as we?

Vegan Dating and Relationships – Cory McCarthy –

fear formidable and fantastic hey everyone it’s Cory McCarthy and welcome to a new episode this is gonna be an off the path type of topic for me but one of my viewers recently asked me for dating advice for vegans this individual specifically addressed how weird most people perceive veganism and the limited size of the vegan dating pool I thought it would be a fun topic to hit up a nice change if you will besides for most people living a fantastic life includes a fulfilling love life so it fits my motto of fit formidable and fantastic I do want to preface that I am no fucking Casanova or a relationships expert but I have my own experience as and more importantly I am capable of logical thought so I will give my best advice on this matter so just take it for what it is my advice first let’s look at the stats as of 2014 at least in the u.s. 79 percent of vegans were female on the surface this appears to be good news for single vegan men who only desire to date vegan women but you also need to factor in sexual orientation and relationship statuses of the 79 percent of women some will inevitably be homosexual others will currently be involved and possibly even married and the same goes for the men which make up the remaining 21% then we need a factoring desirability of those remaining men and women how many would make a quality partner ultimately this is a relative assessment as different people will find different traits to be desirable and finally location where are all of these single and desirable vegans in relation to you some places are still essentially vegan wastelands where you’d have a better chance of spotting a white buffalo than finding another vegan according to happy cow the top 5 cities were vegans in the world are Berlin New York City Portland Oregon San Francisco and London the runner-up cities were Los Angeles Xian Mei Chang Mei in Thailand I hope pronouncing that properly I’m probably butchering that Singapore Toronto in type nonetheless if you’re a vegan guy you’ve certainly got a larger selection of women to choose from in general and likely if you’re a quality vegan guy you will have more women receptive to you within the vegan populace so unfortunately vegan ladies it might be a bit of a challenge for you so what is my best advice given all of this if you’re adamant that you will only date other vegans will first give vegan dating services ago sweeping your current and nearby metropolitan areas for singles a quick Google search will turn up some tips and services for vegans at your disposal you can also check on social media like Facebook for our vegan singles groups or vegan meetup groups in your area here in New York City where I live we have a group called vegans of New York on Facebook that is and while I have yet to attend one of their social events they do offer them regularly perhaps there is one for your neck of the woods or you know something similar another possibility is to get active in your local vegan community or the nearest one to you attend protests or demonstrations and while the core purpose of these isn’t to hook up and don’t be a creep and go there with that intention but you will inevitably meet other vegans and who knows you might simply click with one or more of them and if your area is that dry on vegans perhaps consider relocating if that’s the possibility for you recall the list of top vegan cities that I had stated earlier and don’t reject the possibility of meeting someone online I mean why limit yourself to your neighborhood when there is a whole world of opportunities out there especially in this electronic age the perfect vegan partner for you might be in another city or country so again use social media and other technology to your advantage and when you are presented with an opportunity in any way don’t be afraid to let your interest be known as the old saying goes if you never ask you’ll never know finally if all else fails and you are willing to be flexible you could consider dating a vegetarian where the gender figures are more equalized at 59% women in four 1% men and who knows she may under converting them to veganism by example they are almost there arguably that said I am NOT suggesting anyone settle I personally would rather be alone than lower my own expectations even slightly but that’s just me so I’m still putting that vegetarian suggestion out there and don’t worry about people considering you weird for your lifestyle choices if the behavior and habits of the average person is any concept of what is considered normal then I am fucking proud to be a weird vegan so follow what you feel and know to be right even if that makes you a pioneer in a sense if we all just follow the status quo afraid to make any waves despite knowing that something is wrong that there would never be positive change or progress in this world so keep your heads up and let the haters hate likely they hate out of fear whether they can admit to it or not possibly a fear of change even anyhow please stir up comments and dialogue below and offer some advice and tips that may have worked for you and perhaps even some that I have been considered who knows maybe your special vegan someone might be watching this video right now people meet through so many different avenues also please like and share this video so maybe it

How We Manage Our “Mixed Diet” Relationship

if you’ve been watching the show for a while you’ve probably noticed that we put titles under ourselves sometimes Duncan vegan and Liz not vegan and then we get asked how can this not be vegan she’s been doing this channel for over three years mm-hmm she’s been exposed to all this amazing food and then also educated about the cruelty behind the meat and dairy industry this his girlfriend still not vegan she annoys me she’s not funny clever or pretty enough to tolerate her animal murder leave that ignorant girl if she has not changed by now that’s me well that’s my wife you’re talking about there yeah but it’s one person in particular who’s been commenting for a while now the same comment on every one of our videos and yes is she vegan yet if she be did she begin yet is she begin yet not vegan you should get a lawyer cuz you should divorce her oh did she say that yeah we’re talking about you vegan Tina we wanted to get a little bit more info on vegan Tina so we’ve looked at her channel and it looks like she is an activist she’s got videos Oh make her an activist well it looks like it was taken with her phone so that she was present there okay she’s got these two videos of pigs in a transport truck chained up they’re not chained up they’re just stuffed in there yeah so that they can’t move they’re on their way to the slaughterhouse yeah so first off Tina I want to say thank you for capturing this and sharing it with people so that more people can be educated about the reality of the industry and second I totally understand where you’re coming from when I was getting into being vegan I immerse myself in images like this into the undercover footage and it made me very angry and also gave me a sense of urgency that I needed to do something about it to change it and so I can relate to where you’re coming from if that is where you’re coming from and understand why you would be frustrated with Liz not being vegan it’s technically accurate that liz is not vegan but it doesn’t tell the whole story mm-hmm so in my past relationships before was BL I was a pescetarian and I wanted my girlfriend’s to also be pescetarian but I pretended otherwise I wasn’t clear about that so I would kind of passive-aggressively stew silently if they were eating meat in front of me without really talking about it and it eventually led to a notebook falling off the table Dada Dada and some kind of fight so when Liz very mature I know that that’s what I’m getting to okay this thing so when you and I got together mm-hmm and I was really into you mhm and feeling like maybe this has a potential future the two of us I thought it might be wise to bring up the issue early this is maybe three months into the relationship yeah yeah and if we had kids not to be presumptuous anything yeah but if we were to be together and have kids yeah could the kids be vegan do you hear that conversation yeah yeah and what did you say I think I said I would be fine with raising them vegan but if they got to a certain age and they wanted to make the decision on their own then they should be free to do it right which is reasonable yeah we didn’t work it all out in that one conversation but it’s set the stage for an open channel mm-hmm so then when we moved in together about a year after that yeah we had the discussion about what non vegan foods would be okay in the house yeah we agreed that I could have um cheese or fish or eggs how did you feel about that I felt fine yeah yeah I mean obviously I had to rethink a lot of my go-to staple dishes and I normally made mm-hmm but wasn’t too difficult to get a chance to live with that goober with this goober yeah but I didn’t say anything about eating meat around me yeah right I whenever we went out to dinner I always tended to order something that we could both have so we could share food right but there was this one time that we got takeout from a ramen place dumpling the dumping place yeah do you want to watch the footage sure yeah so this is the pork dumpling incident we can just like scroll through it okay react to it are you nervous no it’s been a long day okay to baby showers today I woke up early I went rock climbing for two hours yeah Epictetus it II for the baby shower we like do another baby shower mm-hmm I know I look like a fascist you don’t at the end of it we were very hungry and I suggested dumplings dumplings and things which is the place I’ve come to the floor because it used to be new my old apartment well it’s got very exciting yeah we get in there I look at the menu and my first thought is maybe we should go somewhere else or I should go somewhere else because it’s it’s there’s only a couple veggie options I actually got somewhere else no we shouldn’t because I want to let you do what you want to do okay but I wasn’t really clear about that so we go up to the counter to order i order my stuff and then Liz orders what is that beeps ooh and important pork dumplings how are you feeling about the so far no it was a lot more emotional before we started rolling on this yeah we’ve kind of cooled down we should capture this yeah I don’t know if I’ll ever release it but we just captured this moment yeah there was another couple in the restaurant so I was talking really proudly and I looked at Liz and I said Liz what the how could you do this I feel silly talking about it now why don’t everybody like tell us story yeah until I use it as an example of how to work through something like this yeah but we haven’t worked through it Duncan still hates me I do understand you but this is also 28 years of my life and thinking that I’m changing and I’m doing just like fej sometimes you have slip-ups but you shouldn’t give it up right it doesn’t make you but I don’t feel like you’re doing it for any other reason other than to make me happy so now I can get along better what’s wrong with that why is that bad it’s not bad because I’m a fundamental level we don’t understand each other that’s not true I understand you if you really understood why I was vegan I feel like it would become more naturally to you in your own life no I fully understand it I just don’t see the world the same way that you do but I’m working on looking at it that way and that’s the kind of talk that makes me feel like I’m trying to brainwash you or lead a cult or something like that it’s not I think if I were to go back and be able to do this over I would just say you you know what I just realized I’m not comfortable with you eating meat around me yeah so let’s let’s finish this meal and you know talk it through mm-hmm rather than kind of being like [Laughter] I am going to walk home by myself so email I hope I am going to listen to the Cure echo and the Bunnymen do want to take myself too seriously sometimes sometimes yeah yeah everythink you already know that huh I don’t want to shame you into doing something right what I believe is right shaming I was trying to get you to see my side of things look I’ve got a little bit of vegan Tina in me in that when I see me I see those animals in the transport truck we’re not resolved anything from the beef stew incident let’s go get them beep now we thought that we were gonna resolve this conflict but it has just been torn open well baby you know I have a tendency to be hypercritical mm-hmm in my relationships and somewhat hypocritical too I get on the Liz about using her phone and then when she goes to sleep I’ll sneak mine out and like be on it for the next two hours at the same time I did discover my comfort level in this episode here with the beef stew mm-hmm I did finally discover I don’t want to be with somebody who eats meat in front of me and fortunately liz is super chill and rolled with it and thank you you’re for that yeah and it’s been it’s been over a year since you’ve had me yeah yeah yeah ish you had a dream about eating chicken wings right I have recurring dreams about eating fried chicken wing really yeah it happens a lot in my dreams so what does this mean not like a lot but like at least five dreams I’ve had in relation to eating chicken wings what are you feeling in the dream I’m just eating it mmm cuz you know you ate it on the bones and you just eat it and it was it’s like good and crispy and you got like the yummy meat and I’m like ah dang it now I’m back to day one of not eating meat if you were to eat chicken wings I wouldn’t freak out ah does this mean that you’re constantly craving chicken wings and I’m keeping you from that no not in my waking life I don’t ever think about them yeah in my dreams I think yeah will you cheat on me in your dreams too right yeah yeah so as you I we can’t help her dreams yeah exactly it doesn’t mean anything I cheat on you with a vegan version of you so really yeah it’s possible to be much it’s just me I’m gonna be yep you can make it happen babe would I prefer that Liz was 100% vegan yes but it’s really not a big deal since we made that agreement three years ago I took I cooked fish once in the house and you were like it’s so smooth really yeah you still bring start sardines in sometimes those are very stinky I haven’t seen cheese in this house no in over a year yeah I haven’t seen eggs in this house and maybe several months uh-huh are you still planning to buy eggs I bought them that one time when you were gone for like two weeks huh ah but I didn’t really want them by the end of it mm-hmm so for all intents and purposes 90% of what you eat maybe is vegan Yeah right so which is why we’ve tried to communicate that with some different labels like like cetera vegan ish mostly vegan yeah that seems to rustle more jimmies than just saying not vegan mm-hmm I understand why people are very hung up on labels and committing to a specific lifestyle of going completely vegan being an omnivore and being a mediator but I think one of the main reasons why we started this chair is that we didn’t want to say this is the lifestyle that you should have this is the way you should be living your life this is the way you should be eating your food this isn’t the way you should be cooking just if you are curious about being more plant-based then this is a way to do it and this is a way to make familiar recipes with vegan and see how they come out hmm I don’t want to ever have a channel that is an accepting of people who just are trying to be vegan one day a week or one meal a week mm-hmm I want to support everybody in trying to eat more plant-based nice thanks so what advice would you give to somebody who’s in a relationship and they’ve decided that they want to be vegan but their partner’s not interested mm-hmm well then you have to understand that you can’t make somebody eat a certain way or believe something that’s impossible you know what it was like before you were vegan you know what the mindset was but being a person who’s just gonna be in their face about it is just gonna put more damage on your relationship than it’s probably worth then you should let everybody figure it out on their own and you also need to figure out what you’re comfortable with like if you don’t wanna cook meat for them didn’t say you don’t want to cook meat for them and then they’ve they’re after you make their own food or you or yeah I suggest tricking them because people have bad associations with the word vegan mm-hm if you just don’t tell them it’ll probably be delicious I suggest subterfuge deception manipulation whatever it takes to get what you want right communication communication knowing who you are trying not to get bent out of shape about certain things liz is very good at that and that’s why we’re so good together and and and having that having somebody that I can speak honestly with in her not getting bent out of shape about it is so valuable and so worth whatever compromises I have to make it’s worth it honey let’s go get some pork dumplings Oh what you’re so over filming this video right now aren’t you dear Tickle Me I swear to God I’m over it bro i’ma jab you in the neck whoa yes oh yes let’s get back on mission here yeah I want to go get some ice cream yeah
