But before I get to that, I came across a line today while doing a Google search that although offensive, rather made me laugh. This person proposed that a campaign be started which would change the word 'gay' in the derogatory phrase that is so gay, to that is so vegan, snort. Now I've always hated the above line myself, and I think this individual was simply trying to shift a bad connotation from one minority group to another, but instead of being too offended, I thought hey, at least that means that vegans are becoming more visible. Because you certainly don't deride groups you're not even aware of.
So back to the question in the post title, are there vegans on TV? Or in movies? I can't really think of any myself, but I don't have a TV anymore, so am probably media-deprived at the moment. And just like it took forever for gay characters to become mainstream (a good indication that society is still really biphobic is in the lack of any bisexual characters, let alone those portrayed in a positive light), once vegans begin to receive airplay (even if it's initially more negative), there ain't no stopping us.
Or how about in books? There's got to be fictional vegans running around somewhere! And, um, once we do start getting caricatured, let's make sure we're not depicted as lacking a sense of humour, okay? Although, isn't that what they say about feminists? Can't win! LOL
