There is no dispute. No one is even looking into it. Instead, the entire world simply unanimously accepts and agrees that I, Nick Shell, am the manliest vegan on the Internet.
What makes me such a manly vegan?…
First off, I am emotionally intelligent regarding my vegan lifestyle. Because I am fully secure in my beliefs, I have zero desire to try to convince others to become vegans. In fact, I would rather other people didn’t become vegans, especially not other men, because it keeps me more unique in my identity. (Approximately less than 0.5% of the American population are male vegans).
Second, I am a committed husband (been in love with the same woman for 10 years now; 8 and a half of which we’ve been married) and an involved father (hence, the daddy blog).
Plus, I am healthy and active. I am not a slave to my body; my body is a slave to me. I get plenty of protein (from vegetables, fruit, beans, grains, nuts, and seeds) and I am always on the move:
I run and I go mountain biking regularly, plus I go hiking and exploring with my son.
Next, I am a decisive leader and a good communicator. I don’t fear change, I embrace it. I always have a few back-up plans.
I am undeniably confident, yet aware of my weaknesses, which I am always working to improve.
Granted, I am very aware of my skills and talents, making sure I utilize them as part of my identity.
Most people have a hard time thinking of just one other male vegan they know. Even if they can think of a male vegan other than me, then the question becomes: Is he manly?
That question quickly evolves: But is he manlier than Nick Shell?
So far, history shows that the answer has always been… no.
As a blogger and YouTuber, I figured I might as well make it official in this announcement today:
I am the manliest vegan on the Internet.
