honestly I don't get why some people are so riled up about my and my families diet...

Hey there
This community is new, so I figured we could do with some introductions. Hi! I'm from Spain, born last century, the first console I ever owned was a Game Boy Pocket and that's enough clues about my age. Vegan for almost 3 years now, still haven't died of nutritional deficiencies, so I'm probably doing something wrong. I started doing advocacy and some activism online soon after I went vegan, but I recently joined a local activist group and became a challenge 22 mentor, because shit's not gonna fix itself. Time to do something about animal abuse, aside from not participating in it. Uhh... Yeah. If you need someone to chat with or vent about carnists saying dumb shit in your vicinity, HMU. I gotchu.

This is the first vegans-only Lemmy server: its a collection of memes, serious, cooking, and discussion communities for all things vegan. If you're unfamiliar with lemmy, you can read more about it [here.]( Simple version: its a reddit alternative, but one we entirely control. More complicated: Its not just a reddit alternative, but one which "links up" with other lemmy servers, to form a web-like network, where you can subscribe to communities on other servers, and talk with others. Think of how someone signed up on gmail can email someone signed up on yahoo. Check the sidebar of the main page for all the communities we currently have, but many more are in the works.
