Are you a vegan and tired of being made the butt of a joke? Tired of people not respecting your choices and lifestyle? Tired of hearing, "But what do you eat?" "Where do you get your protein from?" and, my personal favorite, "But you still eat fish, right?" As a vegan you already know that plenty of people are going to be uninformed to many of the issues you feel strongly about, but must you be scoffed at as soon as someone hears the term "vegan"?
In light of this, I want to change the word "vegan" to "vegasaurus" (pronounced: vej-uh-saw-rus). How can anyone make fun of something so bad ass?
"Hey, we're going to the steak house tonight, you coming?"
"Nah, I'm a vegasaurus, I'm gonna go to that new plant based restaurant instead."
"Whoa, that sounds bad ass! Let's go there instead!"
See? Now not only are you not being made fun of for trying to take care of yourself and the planet (how dare you), but you're also showing other people that there are better options.
Join the fight. Become a vegasaurus.
