I'm basically a lazy gamer, with lots of love for cheesy epic metal, philosophy, astronomy, and vikings. I'm picky as hell about every imaginable thing a person could be picky about. Purdy much it.

who the fuck said it was a white people thing? i’ve never heard anyone say that in my life.

girl shut yo basic ass up.

Up yours. God forbid I’d like to think people generally know better than to believe white people invented vegan/vegetarianism.

You can’t see why she got short with you? The blog’s name is Vegsofcolor, implying it’s ran by people of color who are vegetarians and vegans. The blog made a well researched post about animal rights outside of white nations and people, because they’re being silenced and erased. 

Then you, a white person who isn’t even a vegan, come in and deny it’s happening. There are vegan people of color, who are living life from a perspective you aren’t, whose word is much more reliable than yours on this subject, flat out telling you it’s happening. Yet your first reaction is to question the validity of their claim multiple times.

Instead of talking over POC and “liking to think people know better than that”, listen to POC. White Supremacy loves taking the achievements of POC and rebranding it as their own. White supremacy loves making white people out like angelic compassionate individuals, and POC (especially in history) out like unintelligent savages who couldn’t possibly have concern for animal rights. 

I will do my best to be clearer about this.

I was not and am not saying that whoever made that post was imagining things. My main point was that I haven’t encountered anyone outside of the vegan bubble to adhere to the idea that white people invented it. Apparently those people do exist, and like I said before, that’s ridiculous. That entire idea is ridiculous. I am not trying to minimize anyone’s feelings about their treatment/silencing/erasure and I mean that. I wasn’t frustrated with the poster, I was frustrated with the idea that ANYONE could believe that. It struck me as being so absurd an idea that I was skeptical it could gain any ground. As a “white” person who isn’t vegan I didn’t need a master post to tell me white people didn’t coin the lifestyle. (white is in quotes because I’m full-blooded portuguese and my father emigrated from the azores and so did my mother’s parents, but since I pass I’m sure no one cares.) You are right to say I am the least educated, but if even my least-educated self knows that the idea of white people inventing it is stupid, how could I not wonder how anyone else would come to that conclusion?

I don’t know what to say to that last paragraph except to say that I AM listening and what I hear is pretty upsetting which is precisely why I questioned how it could be happening in the first place. I am sorry if I have belittled you or anyone else with my response. I understand that’s what happened, and I hope you can understand it’s not what I meant to do.

(I understand that girl’s getting short with me and I understood it when I responded, too. That doesn’t make it okay with me. That’s not treatment I’ll swallow for any reason. That’s all I have to say about it.)

I’m not a vegan but I have never heard anyone say white people made it up. I kinda doubt this idea is so mainstream that your average person would have heard it either, but then I’m not taking polls.

It’s a stupid notion either way but I like to think most people are smart enough not to give credence to this shit.

If you’re a vegan and track the vegan related tags and follow vegan blogs, you’ll definitely see it. Especially on Tumblr, because people like to dress up their anti-veganism with social justice. I definitely agree though; it’s a ridiculous idea. The post above proves it, as does thinking about it for five seconds and realizing that a lot of vegans are poor, POC, or both. I want think a lot of them know it’s bullshit too deep down, but regardless they think they found this golden ticket to win against animal rights and they won’t let go of it. If I was better about tagging I’d link you to some posts, because I respond to implications like that rather frequently. 

That’s ridiculous and I am sorry you have to put up with it. I can see people trying to claim it as an animal rights thing; I’m still pissed because that’s still dumb but I mean I could see that happening.

Sigh.

The incredibly talented and super smart Evan Rachel Wood called out the MPAA on their misogynistic, sexist crap after seeing the new cut of her movie and she ain’t wrong.
