Veganism has opened my eyes to an array of different things, including snacks. All this candy and chips keeps making me fat. 

But do I stop? 

Of course not, I find a justification in my eating habits by treating meat-eaters like mops. 

Speaking of them: “vegans are so loud,” “y’all are sad you can only eat fruits and vegetables,” Really? Sounds like you’re just mad we put the “be” in rebels. 

Talk to talkative Tracy next time your troublesome tuffy twists the truth, okay? Ms. Conniving, collect your considerate can of courage at the confidence check center. 

All this hostility because vegans refuse to follow societal rules people take pride in creating, Which is the same exact reason racists partake in color-hating. 

Clearly, the call for social progress is only limited to us human beings. 

Only once veganism loses its taboo, we may finally begin the healing. 

No hatred here, I see you here. 

Took me sixteen years to gain a sense of perspective and fear. 

Right now, the world needs every single one of us; 

We must understand ignorance is the weakest sword you can use in the fight for just.
