I'm not sure I understand the question in the title. Could you possibly elaborate, @Ohzen ? Are you asking how we can make vegans become more focused on action rather than debating how many angels can dance on the point of a needle?
Congratulations on your decision to go vegan!
You're off to a good start by joining the forum :)
Regarding cold tofurkey versus a more gradual approach, I think it depends a bit on your personality. Just remember that the diet you decide to follow (the kind of dishes you eat on a daily basis)...
I've heard of 'rødgrød' because the word is part of a Danish tongue twister of sorts ('rødgrød med fløde') although I don't think I've ever eaten any. I think I might have had some store-bought blåbärsoppa while visiting Sweden back in the day, but can't remember exactly what it was like.
Philosophy and lifestyle - what do vegans in general mean by these terms?
To me, a philosophy would be the theoretical framework that explains what veganism is, why it makes sense, why everyone should adopt it and so on.
The lifestyle is the practical part of veganism: Which products are...
I don't usually deliberately hurt insects: if a fly/bee/wasp gets into our house, I just open a window and try to shoo it out rather than smack it. I always catch spiders in a cup and then promptly release them outside. I do kill mosquitoes and horseflies as there are limits to my compassion...
I'm not quite sure what is wrong with my C64 - it won't turn on - but fortunately I have a second one! :) I now have a USB joystick ("TheC64") and have managed to compile VICE 3.4 and make the joystick work with that. Perfect! But have also been using my other real C64 again recently.
Thanks again for everyone's input. My ideas for this have moved on a bit from my initial draft. I think it's too wordy for something that is aimed at addressing a specific problem which may not or should not be central to the day-to-day operation of the forum.
Just to be clear about the draft...
Hi Alse, and welcome to VF!
Dealing with family and social pressure regarding diet and lifestyle are often some of the most challenging aspects of veganism. I can only imagine how hard it can be in a country like India where family and tradition appear to have an even more central role than in...
We've watched Space Force on Netflix. It was fairly good, I thought.
Also, I've just found out that Ramy season 2 is out. Season 1 was really good, so I highly recommend it.
First of all because I'm already a vegan .... and an atheist humanist :)
It's nice that there is a vegan-friendly traditional religion out there, but I find the idea of souls and mind-body dualism a little 20th century.
You may have noticed the 'Donate' button in the top menu of the forum. And you may have clicked on it and noticed it didn't allow you to do anything much.
But if you click on it now, there is something there!
As you can see, I've started a "campaign" to collect funds for our license renewal...
Maybe the limited availability of vegan specialty junk foods is exactly the problem? These are the kinds of products that often "complete the protein" for junk food vegans, right? Without that, they'd probably subsist mainly on crisps, french fries, white rice, white pasta and sugary fizzy...
This is bad - note that the headline mentions milk, but the second paragraph is perhaps even worse!
You almost wonder if they're victims of deliberate sabotage ...!
