Shame

A former vegan YouTuber, Nikocado Avocado, just started recently to eat eggs again. In his video, he shows how upset he is and what a defeat it is for him to not be vegan anymore. He explains further that he haven’t been feeling well for a while and he wanted to see if eating animal products again would help with his condition.

Parallel while this was happening with Nokodado, a nutritionist from theveganrd.com asked for personal stories of vegans with chronic diseases. She wants to write about how it is to live with a chronic disease as a vegan. So, I decided to write to her, using the inspiring honesty Nikokado used in his video, and share my own experience about my disease. Here is what I wrote her.

Keep veganism to yourself

“I’m actually kind of against your ‘vegan project’.”

I think it’s ok to eat animals. It’s normal in nature, why can’t I do it?”

“They’re just animals…”

“If you want to wear something that looks and feels like leather, why not just buy the real thing?”

“You don’t buy wool products? Really? omg…”

I’ve heard so many comments about me being vegan that I sometimes think, why are people so dumb? But then I have to remind myself that I too didn’t know any better before. Now that I know animal agriculture is the leading cause of environmental destruction, of why almost a billion people are starving every year, of why the oceans will probably collapse within the year 2048 which will lead to mankind going extinct; how can I go back to ever buying animal products?

A vegan YouTuber that I’ve been following for a while now called “Plant Based News”, just recently uploaded a video about veganism. If you’ve ever had any of these thoughts I mentioned above, either good or bad, check out the video to learn more about why people go vegan.

Politics and meat

For a good amount of time I didn’t use my vote. I found it daunting to figure out everything there was about the different parties, what they stood for, their track-record, pros & cons and so on. The final and most daunting task of them all was to compare all of them with each other to try and figure which one was worthy of my vote. I’m currently 31 years young and I only started voting recently. For some this might seem insane, but for me it made a lot of sense. Here is the story of why I started using my vote.

Critical thinking, source checking and copyright

I haven’t written in a while and one of the reasons for that is because I’ve spent a lot of time checking for information about how to write an article and make videos without getting into any copyright problems. I’ve already made a video addressing this issue a while ago (see below for link). So I want to address briefly some of the challenges that have come up when trying to create content.

Warning labels on meat packages

I don’t think there is a person alive in this day in age that doesn’t know that smoking is dangerous. Even though we knew for decades that it was detrimental to our health, it had to take a tremendous amount of unnecessary deaths to finally get warning labels on cigarette packages. Today, tobacco advertising is illegal in Norway and has been for a while now. The packages themselves are also hidden away so you have to ask the cashier to get one for you, or get them out of a special kind of vending machine.
