What the ism? Veganism
Share This Article:
If this hasn’t already happened, at some point in our lives we will go to dinner with a vegan. You know that person who is kind of a vegetarian that doesn’t eat meat so takes forever to choose an item on the menu, and after they’ve picked out a few options, they interrogate the waiter/waitress about the ingredients in each dish. To the carnivores on the table, who would most likely be in the majority, this is just plain annoying especially seeing as all you want to do is order a steak. The reason why vegans sometimes annoy carnivores is perhaps because they don’t really understand what veganism is all about. We here at TNS are all about equality so we decided to educate you carnivores on veganism. In 1847, the first vegetarian society was formed in England. Three years later, Rev. Sylvester Graham, the inventor of Graham crackers, co-founded the American Vegetarian Society. Graham was a Presbyterian minister and his followers, called Grahamites, obeyed his instructions for a virtuous life: vegetarianism, temperance, abstinence, and frequent bathing.
