Why Are People Calling Her The “Psycho Chicken Lady?”

Sometimes when I tell people I am vegan I get a very shocking response. They will say things to me like “Oh, you’re one of those insane activist that like animals more than people!” I do love animals and I am completely devoted to the vegan lifestyle. But I do not consider myself a crazy activist. And I don’t love people more than animals.

The reason there is a perception out there about vegans is because of certain activists and organizations. Some people will do extreme things to get their message out. Honestly, I do not know if these actions cause more good than harm. I don’t have any kind of data to back it up either way. But from my own experience I think it may do more harm. You can’t get anyone to listen to your well thought out and informed thoughts on veganism if someone is convinced you are psycho before you even speak.

So I want to know what you think about this woman. Watch as she calmly walks into a restaurant full of people. What she does next is shocking. And some people are even calling her psychotic. Watch this insane video of a fellow vegan and then let me know what you think! You can see it on the next page.

    My husband called her a psycho. Lol She certainly made a spectacle out of herself. It’s one thing to be passionate about something, but to act irrationally is no way to get your point across. I found the best way to be vegan is by not forcing my lifestyle down other people’s throats. I will always educate an answer questions when asked, but I will never ridicule other people for their own choices. If you come off fanatically, no one will take u seriously. On the other hand, if people make fun of me or judge me, I just ignore them and never engage their ignorance. I, too, was once on the meat-eating side of the fence. I used to worship the Atkins’ Diet. I have eaten more meat than I care to think about, and I didn’t become vegan to save the planet or the cow, that was a bonus. I became vegan for health reasons. Most people don’t acknowledge they are even eating an animal when they eat meat. To them, it’s like eating a candy bar, so the people in that restaurant could not relate to that lady at all, and instead of coming off as sensitive and caring, she came off like nut burger…pun intended.

    She got their attention. She got our attention. This video has gone viral so her message has been spread and she has got people talking. Mission accomplished. Celebrities do this over the top stuff all the time. Hello Miley ! It was strategic. Will people give veganism a chance because of this? Doubtful but I applaud her effort. She has done more than most people to save animals.

    Reiterating the fact that this being is loved and has a name is smart. It personifies the being that many people view as a product.
