I pretended it was complicated for two years when I was calling myself vegetarian who ate liquid meat and other dairy products and I was still comfortable with making unnatural food for my employers and my friends. I even said it’s okay to have fish oil to my sister, that it’s ok if it’s for her health. The whole time I thought it was being ethical and it was enough. Nobody told me otherwise until a person who wasn’t even vegan said how contradictory vegetarians are, but vegans are not. It only took a simple thing like that to make me vegan, imagine if I heard it a lot more often and explained to me right away like that, I would’ve been vegan at least 13 years earlier!
