Crazy, hypocritical vegans are driving me insane
As much as I poke fun at my vegan friends, I love them and their commitment to life, the environment, and health. Veganism does have it's benefits and can be a socially conscience and environmentally friendly lifestyle.
BUT, like most humanity, Vegans can be a bit overbearing and sanctimonious about their dietary decisions. Not to say that we omnivores are perfect because we are far from it, but Vegans can really be a handful when they start lecturing about the benefits of their veganism and how "unenlightened" others are for eating the way they choose to. sometimes, they can be very judgemental and "holier-than-thou!"
Posted below is an article, written by Steve Cuozzo from the New York Post, about the dangers of Vegan hypocrisy and introduces us to SciBabe, a blog that debunks nutrition myths.
By no means is this vegan bashing or an attack on homeopathic medicine, this article provides insight into another aspect of the vegan discussion and gives us a more holistic look at the lifestyle and culture. Nothing is perfect and discussing different aspects of a culture allow us to learn more about it.
Read it, go eat something healthy, and ¡Buen Provecho!
To anyone fed up with full-of-themselves vegans, it was delicious to learn that Sarma Melngailis, the former owner of vegan-food mecca Pure Food and Wine, had ordered a cheese-filled Domino’s pizza before she was arrested last week for alleged fraud and grand larceny. Cops had hunted her for nearly a year since she vanished after being sued for not paying employees’ wages.
But Melngailis — whose Gramercy Park restaurant was holy ground to those who shun not only meat and fish, but “animal-derived products” such as dairy and even honey — was merely the latest vegan hypocrite.
