Be A Vegan And Not An Asshole

 So my last post was an welcoming to the vegan family. Did you get your card in the mail yet? This post on the other hand is a petition. My one and only request.

  And it goes like this, please be a vegan and not an asshole.

  Do you feel good about yourself for making the decision to no longer use or consume products that exploit and harm animals? Great, you should. *internet high five*

  Do you now feel like you are in any way, shape or form better than anyone else i.e. meat eaters or vegheads? Not so great, you shouldn't. *internet dick punch* I learned that move in my pacifistic virtual kung fu class.

  Truth is, unfortunately a lot of times when someone chooses the vegan lifestyle they become engulfed by an elitist attitude, myself included. You begin to look down upon others who don't share your views. And in some cases disregard the sacredness of another life form. Which is the complete antithesis of the core belief of Veganism. So I hope your compassion for animals will bleed over into compassion for all things. All life is sacred!

  Why should I have compassion for all forms you ask?

  Hear me now my friend, no man is better than you. Also inversely you are better than no man. The result of the poetic conundrum I posed is equality. Let me pose another notion nothing is right nor wrong, only different. We are all human beings. You and I just operate under a different modality, one attuned to a more sensitive frequency. So I pray thee, please approach Veganism accordingly. As the saying goes hate can not drive out hate, only love can do that.

  I am sure you are saying to yourself right about now "uh okay... so what the hell is with the pasta?" Well I had to get you to read my rant somehow didn't I? That is a picture of  the gluten free rice penne, with huge colossal black olives and a garlic and herb blended vegan sauce, I devoured not too long ago. Healthy and delicious!

  Any thoughts: vegan, asshole, shit even pasta related, let me hear 'em below. I'd love to know what you think. Until next time my avegos (see what I did there), choose love over fear and bye for now.
