Where are all the vegans?

When I joined mothering, I thought there would be far more vegan families here. However, I read article after article promoting animal cruelty and it appears that there are more omnivores than actual vegans in the vegan/vegetarian subgroup.

Are there any other vegans here? Do you wish there was more vegan friendly content on the website? Do you wish there were more people in the forums who were vegan friendly/promote a vegan lifestyle?

Hi! I'm a long-term vegan, (18 yrs), and have raised my almost 12 yr old son vegan since birth. When I first joined Mothering in '06 there were plenty of vegans here and more supportive articles. I just popped in and was saddened by how quiet this place has become. But just wanted to let you know that we're out there and yes, I do wish there were more vegan content on the site.

I started out in life as a raw vegan.

While I have frequently wandered off that compass, I am very supportive of the vegan/vegetarian lifestyle.

Eating that way is the epitome of health and good living.

And yes, this place is very quiet.

I've been vegan for a few years now! Absolutely love it - don't think I could ever go back! I'm gluten free as well. At times it's quite a challenge since I'm the only one in my family eating this way. I don't know any other vegans IRL.
