To current and prospective vegans:

Remember this next time you want to scold someone harshly for eating something like Oreos because it’s “processed food” or because you are not sure if the sugar can be verified as being vegan.

Remember your heart and what it wants. We will not be able to win over people’s hearts and minds to veganism if we do not treat people with kindness, respect, and understanding. (And if we keep that up, maybe one day arguing over Oreos will be a silly, moot point).

(This is in response to the constant fighting and bullying I see sometimes in vegan places online…which is often the home of many people’s first introduction to vegans and the idea of veganism).
