It wasn't a pro-vegan article.
However, it also was a leap in terms that it didn't say that being a vegan athlete was foolish or harmful or detrimental to success. That's a big leap.
"The worker has the right to leave his boss, but can she do it? And if she does quit him, is it in order to lead a free life; where she will have no master but herself? No, she leaves to sell herself to another employer. She's driven by the same hunger. Thus the worker's liberty is only a theoretical freedom, lacking any means of realization; an utter falsehood."

Sounds like it is much better than their last article which was a panel/editoral about how livable and practical a vegan diet is. While the panel did include Rip Esselystyn, it did not include one regiestered dietitian at all and did include Nina Planck and the dude from Let Them Eat Meat ( professional vegan haters ).
Basically, it was set up to sell advertising by baiting vegans.

They always focus in these type things on the myth that getting enough protein is hard in a vegan diet. Seriously, I doubt as a woman that I need 60-90 grams of protein a day as they say in the article.
