veganism, food deserts Show more
I love vegans for what they do to save the planet and animals, but some of them don't realize food deserts still exist so being militant toward "omnivores" and their diets isn't helpful. Insisting a vegan diet is cheap isn't helpful. Insisting a vegan diet is cheap and people who don't do it are lazy is trashy to say the least.
Food deserts are real in urban and rural spaces, wherever the poverty is. We need cheaper nutritional food to be more available in order for veganism and it's benefits to get a strong foothold. That means local grow ops and solarpunk transformations of living spaces. Being snide achieves nothing. Rant over.
