Aren’t there a lot of ex-vegans?

December 10, 2013

There is no such thing as someone who ‘used to be a vegan’.
A vegan is a human butterfly.

No butterfly can claim to have once been a butterfly but are now back to being a caterpillar again – that is not possible. And so it is also not possible to have once been a vegan.

Once we fully emerge from the cocoon of cultural indoctrination which caused us to accept cruelty to those not like ourselves we are free from that gravity. No longer pulled down, our wings spread and we fly forever free from the notion that cruelty to any living being is ever justifiable.

Someone who used to be a vegan never quite made it out of the cocoon. They are a butterfly in waiting.

They used to eat a plant based diet and a diet tends to be a temporary thing.

But a butterfly remains thus for all the remaining days of its life.

In this world we do not have meat eaters, vegans and ex vegans.

We simply have vegans and future vegans.  Some of the future vegans are on a plant based diet, or have been on that diet.


  1. Beautifully said. I love the idea of being a butterfly free to fly 🙂
