Wow so much vegan hate! I cop a lot of **** for not eating animal products. People usually find out at work functions when I bring my own food (because when you cater for 250+ it's retarded to make one special order for me, who is making a choice completely different to the mainstream). I've found the best way to stop the insults is to offer my food... it tastes so bad they drop dead! Jk jk. I like my food tasty.
I think a lot of vegans don't understand that by using that label (I don't actually call myself a vegan... I just don't eat animal products) they are sending a signal that any non vegan/vegetarian/scientologist/whatever is on a lower moral standing. Which is retarded. It makes people then want to argue and bicker and justify themselves to you or show you the error of your ways. Those are the most boring conversations ever. They're boring because I don't give a **** what other people eat, and I'm not going to be influenced by other peoples opinions on what I'm going to eat.
I can't imagine going around trying to preach to people though. Ya'll have some intense stories of vegans with boundary issues. The only issue I've had was a girl who took offense that I feed my dog meat/animal products. I'm like, hey, he's a dog. He doesn't wake up and ponder, 'Can I thrive without chomping on chicken necks and eating beef?'. He also literally makes the noise 'nomnom nomn nom' while eating.
