When I went vegan I couldn’t help myself—I bought every convincing documentary that was out at the time, and insisted that Tommy watch them with me. He did so reluctantly, but he did it nevertheless. I started with Cowspiracy, then Food Matters, and not in any particular order he watched Forks Over Knives, Speciesism, Peaceable Kingdom; and after he went vegan he watched Earthlings, and What the Health.
Documentaries are a powerful way to get the people you love to see the light, and many of them can be seen on Netflix, YouTube, and Amazon Prime.
When I went vegan, I went crazy on my husband because the violence that I was complicit to had been building up for so long. I threw all animal products out of the house, and dared him to cross me. I put my foot down and absolutely forbade him to eat animals-or their excretions in our home. I watched slaughter house videos every day for hours at a time. I would cry, scream, and run around the house calling Tommy a murderer. Tommy would plead with me to stop watching the violent footage. The way that I got him to watch the documentaries was by telling him that if he watched the documentaries with me, I would not watch the slaughter house videos that day. It worked.
And, combine the documentaries with great meat, cheese, and ice cream substitutes and it wasn’t long before Tommy was a professed vegan Watch the full video of this talk on my YouTube channel. The link is in my bio.
