In this week’s mini episode, the Bearded Vegans dissect a recent post trying to push the term “vegan ally” as a way to describe those who aren’t. If vegans aren’t an oppressed group, do we need allies? Is this just a reducetarian rebrand? When allyship is unfortunately often seen as a noun and not a verb, does creating vegan allies actually encourage inaction? Or, does this actually help to create a larger and more effective movement by creating a bigger tent? Would non-vegans applying this label be more likely to go vegan, or create pro-vegan content? There is a lot to dig into here, and Paul and Andy will do their best to cover it all.
