All in Social Sabotage

When I tell people about my plant-based journey I often get the response “I need meat” or even better, “humans need meat to survive.” But that’s not true, now is it? If that were actually true, vegetarians and vegans wouldn’t exist...because they would all be dead!…Why can’t we just accept plants as plants and meat as meat without trying to make plants meat?

If your parents are anything like mine, you grew up learning not to point at kids who walked with arm crutches/braces because it’s impolite to stare or make fun of those who are seemingly less fortunate.  As an adult, when you come upon someone who is disfigured or maybe missing a limb, the best version of you musters a smile and tries not to make them feel out of place. When did we amend the social contract and declare open season on people who don’t fit our ideal aesthetic?
