Are Vegans Privileged and Out of Touch? How to Respond
Editor’s note: There are a lot of misperceptions about vegans and their diet, and Cadry from Cadry’s Kitchen is addressing them in a series of posts. Here, she responds to the criticism that vegans are privileged and out of touch. You might be surprised by her line of reasoning. --Jane
To the person who mocks vegans for concerning themselves with animal ingredients in food, would I somehow help the starving if I ate a hamburger? Would there be some kind of trickle-down effect? While it’s easy to write off vegans for reading nutrition labels or questioning the animal industry, is it somehow less privileged to not question where your food comes from?
