and by that, I don’t mean throwing red paint at people or shaming people for their diets.
Veganism has long been a movement stifled by an air of moral superiority and blindness to the context that surrounds communities’ lifestyles and access to resources.
In radical veganism, you strive to address hierarchies of all forms— yes, animals, but also within humans. So you can miss me with comparing the strife of animals with things like slavery when that is still the reality of so many (e.g laborers that are predominantly POC are routinely exploited for plant-based foods such as cocoa, coffee beans, bananas, etc).
And I say this not as an enemy of veganism, but as your local plant-based bby. Embrace nuance.
Do the work to understand that human rights and environmental sustainability are not fringe issues to animal rights. It’s all connected. 🌸✊🏽🌍 @veganfashionweek - 1 hour ago
