Last year, nearly 170,000 people signed an online pledge with Veganuary to avoid animal products including meat, milk, eggs, and butter for the month in January. Going vegan for the entire month might sound difficult, but results prove otherwise. In 2018, the majority of folks who signed up for the challenge not only completed it but continued on, adopting veganism as a lifestyle change.

Asking people to casually try veganism is irresponsible. Safe veganism requires a lot of knowledge and planning, otherwise people can very easily end up malnourished.

There is a world of difference being vegetarian, and being vegan. And vegan i will never be.

I was at a non-vegan restaurant and this vegan was in there having a fit because there were no vegan options for them on the menu. Literally told everyone in the restaurant they were a vegan. Asked to speak to the manager and the chef, who agreed to create a vegan meal for them. It comes out, the vegan calls the manager and the chef over to explain how the meal wasn’t actually vegan and corrected the chef on his cooking.

Veganism is not simply a definition of a diet, but a way of living."The word 'veganism' denotes a philosophy and way of living which seeks to exclude — as far as is possible and practicable — all forms of exploitation of, and cruelty to, animals for food, clothing or any other purpose; and by extension, promotes the development and use of animal-free alternatives for the benefit of humans, animals and the environment. In dietary terms it denotes the practice of dispensing with all products derived wholly or partly from animals." – Vegan Society of the UK definition of veganism.

Every time we spend money - on food or otherwise - we cast a vote for the kind of world we want. When it comes to seeing other sentient beings as our 'property' to commodify and treat as 'things' to breed, use, kill and eat, we have a choice to choose kindness or cruelty. Humans have no biological need to consume anything of or from animals in order to have good health. We take their lives and consume their chopped-up body parts, their excretions and secretions, all for our own convenience and pleasure. Is enjoying the taste of that 'beef' (see 'murdered cow) burger for a few minutes more important that that animal's entire life? Of course not. Each time you choose what to eat, you choose between harming others unnecessarily, or not. If we can live happy and healthy lives without harming others, why wouldn't we? If you have the option to be kind or cruel, and you choose cruelty when being kind is no sacrifice to you, what does that make you? What kind of person do you want to be? How would you like to be treated under the same circumstances?

Veganism is about justice. If other animals matter morally at all, living a vegan way of life is the very least we can do. Choosing not to use them as our property, to reduce them to mere commodities, goes against the idea of them having moral value.
