vegans expected to be beautiful

Submitted by Xylanthius in Vegan

I think that a lot about beauty depends on genetics.

I"m a long term vegan, and I'm ugly. No one would ever expect me to be a vegan i don't think.

but i feel stigma to tell people i'm vegan because of that. because vegans are expected to be beautiful.

Thoughts?

I hate how in veganism there is such a focus on weight loss.

Health is a big concern and should be prioritized, but the emphasis on weight loss is annoying. Vegan is beautiful, no matter who you are, you are beautiful!

So damn annoying. As a guy trying to gain weight, it's so frustrating that every restaurant with a vegan option has it in the"light calorie" section

I think beauty depends on what the person feels, as well as their environment.

THIS.

I spent years of my life absolutely miserable because of my weight and skin... until i got on the right antidepressants. now I can see that I was completely overreacting to my condition. feels so good to finally be in the right frame of mind :)

It's interesting how when babies are born they are all beautiful, but at some point down the line we change our thinking towards others and start judging them.
