Dripping with privilege

I will be up front and say I only listened to the episode about how you do not need to go vegan to be sustainable. I don’t really have an interest in hearing more. I am not a full time vegan and don’t see myself as ever being able to achieve that, but the way this was talked about really just turned me off. As a white woman who is very passionate about being green and sustainable, I understand that it’s not easy for everyone to be that way. The comments about eating meat isn’t bad if you get it from regenerative farms and sustainable sources came across as extremely tone deaf to me and just dripped with privilege. I’m sorry, but not everyone can afford to get grass fed meats and shop at regenerative farms. Not only that, it’s just not available to everyone based on where they live. And we all can’t afford to have our own acreage where we can do it ourselves. I believe the podcast was well intentioned and did have some interesting facts, hence 2 stars, but these women really need to check their privilege at the door. Maybe then it would be more relatable and palatable. Also, I died laughing when tomatoes were said to be viewed equally as chicken in terms of needing to be harvested/killed for human consumption. Come on now.
