No Longer ‘Vegan’

I have already updated my facebook profile, and over the next few days, will be updating my blog as well.

I no longer consider myself a ‘vegan’.  Instead, consider me someone who lives a Plant-Based Lifestyle.  Why?

Since joining the social networking experiment, I have ‘met’ many online vegans .. participating in their forums, replying to posts on their walls, and following their blogs.  For the most part, I have discovered that vegans are:

-Ignorant of health issues

-Propagate falsehoods (even when shown the truth)

-Hateful towards non-vegans

-Foul-mouthed in their rants, and

-Dictatorial in their views.

Granted, not all of them, but certainly enough for me to finally understand the phrase “radical vegan”.

Therefore, I will no longer count myself part of their ranks.

I choose – and so remain – to be happy, healthy and holy in word and deed.

Iya, Inity and Ital!

    Whole Foods, Plant Food based diet is supported by ‘The China Study’ and ‘Forks Over Knives’ and soon to be released ‘Vegucated’ Yeah, maybe yogi and yogini vegans are a better choice to be in comm with. Be it radical vegan or radical anything (have observed Yogi’s and Yoginis that are not open as well or gamble, smoke tobacco/marijuana and use alcohol), at least we could all do best communicating analytically then reactively. Love ya and Sat Nam Valarie! 🙂
