I am a Hypocrite

I was discussing creating a Australian vegan blogger link up with some girls through facebook and a reader questioned me about a pulled pork recipe that I had listed on my blog.

I had originally created this recipe before becoming vegan and had given no thoughts to removing the posts now that I am a vegan.

“People don’t want to hear the truth because they don’t want their illusions destroyed” 

How can I preach veganism when I have non vegan content on the soap box I stand on to shout my views to the world??

I would like to say that it was out of sheer laziness that I didn’t remove those posts but I am ashamed to admit that I stupidly didn’t even think about the hypocrisy of it all.

I guess I stupidly thought that I should have a few non vegan posts because I was worried about backlash, I really don’t know many “real life vegans” and didn’t want to alienate myself from friends and family anymore than I already am by becoming a vegan.

” If you don’t stand for something you will fall for anything”

I am not proud of this!!

I look to Gary Yourofsky and other activists with a wish to be able to go out in the world and make stand for veganism, yet here I am allowing some of my old blog content to completely disagree with my beliefs.

I vow from this moment onwards to STOP, I will be the activist that I have previously been to scared to be. Why should I hide my disgust at animal suffering to avoid a argument!
