I was thinking today, how fortunate we are that we live in a time and a place where we can actually say "I choose not to eat that," whatever the "that" may be.
Regardless of whether someone thinks I am crazy for eschewing animal products, or someone else thinks I'm not vegan enough, I have the option of eating what I want. I'm not desperate, I'm not starving, I'm not oppressed. I can choose. You can choose too.
I choose not to eat animal products.
