The word vegan has a very specific objective and definition, it’s to dismantle speciesism. It doesn’t have to be set up in behavioral terms other than believing and acting on that belief that animals are equal.

Speciesism is a systematic oppression as is racism, sexism, queerphobia etc. It all stems from the notion that having a privilege (doing nothing but receiving special treatment because of how you’re born) is the correct hierarchy of things.

Even “vegans” don’t understand what veganism is! And the result is a bunch of vegans who hate animals trying to teach the rest of the vegans to hate animals.

Putting anyone below us is hate and violence.

And the term vegan pretty much sums up our own ego. Instead of the vital message of “Hey something is horribly wrong” we just describe what WE do. It’s us In the spotlight, being performative.
