I know there have been some really unfortunate stories (re sexism/racism) out of DxE in California, but I've been pretty impressed by some of our local vegan DxE activists who have done the #flowersforanimals challenge (go to a restaurant and speak up for an animal that was killed for food and put flowers on the body).

I'm just wondering if there is something I am missing about DxE that means that I should steer clear of our local NY/NJ activists as well....

Does this mean screaming in a restaurant and contaminating other people's meals until the police arrive? If so, I think that sounds like a pretty good thing to steer clear of.

Yeah, does it mean interrupting the meal of someone who's eating meat and putting flowers on their plate? That sounds like an incredibly effective way of 1) looking crazy, and 2) turning people off veganism.

Yup, you shouldn't be touching other people's food and it can definitely turn people off of veganism.

I'm not even freaked out easily about food stuff but if this happened, I definitely wouldn't want to eat the food and I'd either ask the restaurant to replace it OR go somewhere and eat something else, which means yeah more animals dying if I ate meat.

Yeah, I can't imagine anything less likely to make new vegans.
