Talk of Banning YA Vegan Novel for Bad Language (Not ‘Seitan’)

The Jacksonville, Florida school district is reviewing the inclusion of Carolyn Mackler’s Vegan Virgin Valentine in the school library. Angry parents object to the copious use of “the f-word,” but what they should really be pissed about is the book’s ignorant use of the v-word.

When VVV‘s 17-year-old heroine Mara gets dumped, she looks for something new to obsess over besides her ex. And “veganism made sense. It’s all-consumingly obsessive.” In the end, Mara loses her virginity and her veganism, though she does remain vegetarian (no longer a “starving person”). Mackler is also the author of The Earth, My Butt, and Other Big Round Things, so take this vegan-as-OCD with a big round grain of salt. But while Mackler clearly misses the point, it’s nice to see a smart veg heroine in a book marketed to teen girls, where vegetarianism is about three times as popular as in the larger population. I mean, fuck.
