Vegans aren’t funny. They’re all fanatics. They don’t have sex. And their soy ice cream sucks. These are just a few of the misconceptions people have. And in short, they’re wrong.

Satya’s August issue Myth-Busters! Breaking Vegan Stereotypes presents a humorous, yet serious, look at activists busting all kinds of myths. Michelle Thew debunks the “Not Tested on Animals” label. Shannon Keith and Daniel McGowan show us that all activists are not terrorists, punk rocker Ian MacKaye reminds us not all vegans are fanatics, John Phillips proves politics and animal issues can be friends, and bodybuilder Kenneth Williams flexes his vegan muscle. And if you think pit bulls are monsters, writer and dog rescuer Ken Foster will prove you wrong. Check out our pull-out guide to DC’s vegan eats by Erica Meier, too. All this and more.
