RAINRA Posted August 8, 2008 Share Posted August 8, 2008 During a discussion with a friend they mentioned that Vegans seem to Isolate themselves from rest of the world. I was like that is a bold statement? The truth is, my friend said, Is that Vegans choose to do vegan activities, vegan events and vegan communities where it is just seems to cater to their own crowd even if others are welcome. We all know why we are vegan why do we congregate so often ? Is it because we like to be different? Being new to veganism I really did not know how to respond. Maybe it is to vent I thought from non veg people, or to hear the latest on the animal rights front, or people are just looking for community that shares the same principles. That is fine my friend said but trying to change the minds of others you must be more integrated in the general population. So that others can see what a great life you lead and what you stand for. Not just doing vegan things, and eating at vegan restaurants. How do expect other restaurants to offer more vegan options if you stick to vegetarian restaurants. How do you see yourself, and other vegans are we more about trying to find more vegans to share a community or are we very much just trying to integrate in society influencing people that way? What is done more? If we had the option to just eat and shop at vegan stores would we just go there or would we try to shop everywhere just to influence society to cater more to us?
