I made some ANNOYING VEGAN stickers and badges recently and they sold like vegan marshmallows at Maidstone and Hastings vegan fairs recently, they made people smile, and vegans bought dozens of them, so I decided to make the design into a t shirt as well.
I actually find most vegans to be LESS annoying than non-vegans.
It is makes little sense to stereotype over half a million people in this country who are all different and have come to veganism by a thousand different routes and experiences, when all they have in common is compassionate lifestyle choices.
I think the stereotype of the ''annoying vegan'' has arisen simply because non-vegans often seem to feel guilty and uncomfortable about their own lifestyle choices when around vegans, often without the vegan even doing or saying anything, and that discomfort is then turned on vegans who are accused of guilt tripping, preaching, extremism, humourlessness etc etc especially if the vegans politely answer questions about why they are vegan 'because milking cows doesn't kill them' etc etc
So I decided that we should own this and wear the title with pride, and maybe by doing so we will challenge the stereotype and show how ridiculous and unfair it is.
NB In order to do this of course you must make sure that if you are wearing your t shirt you AREN'T actually being annoying, or you will just set the whole process back by about five years. ;-)
The white t shirt is printed in green ink, or black, purple or green t shirts are printed in white ink and red t shirts will be printed in black ink.
I hand print to order so please allow a few days for the magic to happen, especially during the badger cull, and above all, be nice-always.
