What Should We Call Veganism: A Vegan Life in GIFs, Part 1

Being vegan, I seem to keep getting myself into the same situations over and over again. Some are pleasant, some are less, and then there are the same old statements, being repeated again and again. While this might become a bit annoying at some point, I’ve decided that instead of taking it too seriously I’d turn the experience into something fun.

So, in light of the recent trend of turning every situation into an excuse for a GIF party, I’m proud to introduce – A GIF party, vegan-style. So without further ado, here are 10 common situations in the life of a vegan, and their GIF-shaped counterparts. Enjoy!

1. My friends – when I told them I was going vegan:

Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End, Walt Disney Pictures


And my reply:

The Great Gatsby, Warner Bros. Pictures

2. When someone tells me humans are carnivores that can’t survive without meat

Mean Girls, Paramount Pictures
3. Every time I go to Whole Foods
4. When people call veganism a ‘cult’

Hi! My name is Natalia. I’m currently residing in Israel and studying towards a BA in Psychology and Environmental Studies. I became vegan after reading Jonathan Safran Foer’s book, Eating Animals. I found that educating myself via books and movies, and surrounding myself with people who support the vegan lifestyle made a big difference in my life. Throughout this process I learnt so many new things, and have come to consider what I can do for the planet and how I can be more compassionate to its creatures.
