007 - Breaking Vegan Stereotypes

What do you think of when you think of vegans? There are certainly a lot of vegans who fit the description of left-wing, skinny, straight edge, white girls who do yoga and live in Southern California and don’t shave or shampoo. But is this stereotype a true description of the majority of vegans out there? Hannah McNeely and Evan Oliver discuss how they themselves might fall into this stereotype, who in the online vegan community is breaking it, and why stereotyping can be destructive for the movement.
