Are You Vegan Enough? ft The Vegan Police


Under the ever-watchful eye of the Vegan Police, we explore the question: “When can you officially say ‘I’m vegan’? What all must you exclude? Is it enough to be free of meat, dairy, eggs and honey? Or do you have to also be careful with sugar, medication, transportation, toiletries, cosmetics, even birth control? In this video, I answer the question- to the best of my ability of when you can consider yourself vegan, and mix in a healthy dose of ridiculousness.

Really well done, and super funny. You're very intimidating as a cop, actually.

It's always good to see you Emily but I was worried that in your latest Bite-Size, we were going to see more of you than you'd intended...

I was glad to hear you mention Donald Watson, the founder of the UK Vegan Society. He was born in Mexborough, only 14 miles from where I was born in Sheffield. Thought you might be interested to see the Watson home where Donald lived for the first 20+ years of his life. He had a sister, Eva and a brother Norman who was also strongly principled, a veggie and who died in 2000 aged 94. Donald Watson died in 2005 aged 95. Other famous people from Mexborough include the actor Brian Blessed (Prince Vultan in the film Flash Gordon) and the poet Ted Hughes who was married to Sylvia Plath.

Donald Watson's house is the one behind the hedge:

Thanks, Emily, for the informative video...Sometimes I need to remember the rest of the world isn't vegan *sigh*

Vegan Police

So, I just watched this video and thought it was cute. I am open to being told I am wrong but do want to share my opinion. This is an example of people wanting to have a title. I support not supporting animal processing. I do not not eat meat and only eat whole foods such as fruits, veggies and starches which can be both. I think that people get way too caught up in titles and trying to be vegan. I would argue that if you don't eat meat or eggs then you are helping lessen the demand for animals. I am confused about the animal byproducts. I do try to stay away from them but not sure how getting upset when you eat something that has an animal byproduct helps. I have a weird opinion about this. I think we should stay away from all animal products, but am not sure how freaking out over something that has an animal product actually reduces the demand? If those that slaughter animals have a byproduct then it might be not so crazy to use it. I don't support it or want any animals to be killed, but if they are the aftermath then we are too late. I am more concerned about creating less of a demand so the animal is not slaughtered in the first place. My only point is that this does not stop demand and does not do anything for prevention.

Animal byproducts are purchased from slaughterhouses. Therefore, animal byproducts increase the profits made by the meat industry. This is the opposite of what's needed.

That's pretty cool that you live near Donald Watson's birthplace. And yes, he lived pretty late into his life, which is just another testament to veganism. And don't worry, I was careful not to have a wardrobe malfunction:-)

Yes, it's quite unfortunate isn't it?

That's why I always focus on the main industries. As I send the video, when we stop slaughtering animals, we won't have to figure out what to do with the byproducts.

Another great BSV video!!!

I hope that vegan cop never pulls me over!!

All animals should be respected & should have the ability to lead a natural & enjoyable life. This means not eating them, or abusing them in any way.

I can see both ocrob37's and David3's points. I definitely tend to be more lax or sloppy when it comes to avoiding byproducts, though. This is the reason I can't call myself vegan yet- but I've been making some effort even with byproducts.

Thanks. It can be difficult to find vegan donuts :3
...and I'm getting some maple "bacon" (?) donuts from TheComfortingVegan (etsy) So I guess it isn't too hard.

This cop lives in my head. I'm glad she's back after spending seven years as a retread carcass can. I think I've watched all the vegan nugget videos now. Hoping for more!
