Defending veganism in business

December 15, 2010

We’ve talked around this one in previous videos and comments, but there’s a perception out there that it’s hard, if not impossible, to be vegan if you do a lot of business networking and the associated meals. Naw. In fact, I’ve got a new comeback at the ready in case it ever comes up:

The story I’m talking about is The Rise of the Power Vegans, which I kind of made fun of here [URL NSFW, content fine and dandy], but hey, in the right setting, it’s possibly useful.

I don’t want to hijack this post, but I am curious if you guys have any experience “defending” veganism in a more blue collar, less academic environment. What athletes or other figures of (male)prowess do you reference? With the way meat is iidentified as the essence of masculinity through marketing, how do you make your veganism palatable to a predominately male, aggressive audience in a physical work environment? (Sorry if this pre-empts your next post)

I use beer 🙂

This might be more of a celebrity question, at least in terms of who to reference, and it’s better answered by someone who can, say, name more than 5 teams in a given league, but I’m gathering that there are more pro sports figures going veg. It’s a shame Georges Laraque retired from hockey, but he’s still useful to bring up for a while I figure (especially with his enforcer-type role on the Canadiens.)

I don’t get enough exposure to blue collar-style environments, so other than beer as a common denominator, I don’t have a lot to suggest right now. Anyone else?
