Welcome to my new blog. Rocking the Suburbs is no more (and was being pretty sporadically posted-on anyway); I wanted to start this blog because I am still vegan, and support people becoming vegan, but have started to see more of the problems with the way veganism is largely promoted (there is body-shaming, ableist language against people struggling with depression, anxiety, eating disorders, and other mental illnesses, completely brushing aside issues of human rights abuses and unjust political systems in the name of promoting veganism, language like “everyone can be vegan; it’s easy!” which reflects a privileged position, the list goes on). I see these as barriers to reaching the most people in the most effective way. This is what I hope to accomplish with this blog; getting people to at least consider this. I will be posting videos I’ve made for my YouTube channel, as well as new writing of mine, and sharing blog posts and videos from other vegans and intersectional activists. So enjoy!
