The Vegan Police and Not Being "Vegan Enough"

My newest piece for Raise Vegan is called "The Vegan Police and Not Being "Vegan Enough."

I share a personal story in this one. Now that I've been vegan most of my life, I don't worry about this sort of stuff as much, but it really got to me at the time.

I guess people are always going to be protective of the things that are important to them. And for some vegans, especially new vegans, that means being protective of veganism as they understand it, without room for nuance.

Anyway, here's a picture I took in 2007, when I was brand new in Seattle:

And here are some strawberries we picked from our yard this week!
