All right, so what’s up with this whole Vegan Valor blog? I’m going to tell you. Close the door and button down the hatches because this is no holds barred vegan living where the f-bomb is one of my favorite vegan adjectives 😉
Seriously though, let’s take a look at the word vegan. Ve•gan \ˈvē-gən a noun: a strict vegetarian who consumes no animal food or dairy products; also : one who abstains from using animal products (as leather). Now this doesn’t fit the full meal deal for me, vegans also don’t eat honey for example. Don’t be a hater player!
So I’m going to talk and rant and rave about vegan subjects. Let’s also take a boo at valor. Va•lor \ˈva-lər\ noun: strength of mind or spirit that enables a person to encounter danger with firmness : personal bravery. Now we’re getting to the seitan (meat) of the matter. This is a nice and malleable word just like soft tofu, I’ll be shaping it into all sorts of rantings and ravings.
Still confused? I’m a vegan and have been for over 25 years. I’m the kind of vegan who doesn’t eat honey though I’m not a fascist and purist but I can get indignant and you’ll hear about it here. My veganism flavors my life and ethics so I’ll write about stuff that upsets me and I’ll write about stuff that is just vegan awesome too.
Yeah I want everyone to be vegan. Get over it. I’m not going to apologize for wanting that and writing about things that can hopefully build a better world for all of us. I’m into kindness and compassion and walking with Jesus… Scratch that last bit. If I’m offensive that’s fine but that’s not my thrust and my goal. I’m not Dale Carnegie and I’m not here to win friends though I do hope to influence some folks. As for Jesus, if you call yourself a Christian and you eat meat you’re lying to yourself. Do you think Jesus would work in a slaughterhouse let alone dine on the suffering, torture and death of gentle creatures. I didn’t think so.
That’s just a taste. Wipe that dribble of blood off your chin and we can be friends. Let’s get ready to rumble.
PS. Who coined the term for veganism? It was Donald Watson
