I knew a vegan, once, who almost had me convinced to become a vegan, too.  But then I eated him.

In all hobbies there is a subset of folks that take the "who's more authentic" game and turn it into a blood-boiling obsession, like the Civil War reenactors that scoff at others for not having fleas.

That's pretty much what TFA is all about.

a website called "The Vegan Sellout List," which is very rapidly gaining popularity among the militant-vegan crowd.

And apparently quite popular with bloggers who find themselves on it.

It's good that she wrote an entire post about how this doesn't bother her at all.

You know what? I don't mind if folks decide to go vegetarian. I don't mind if they go vegan. It does affect me, at least at work, because I make accommodations to the menu for them, but personally, it matters very little to me, other than a few more folks that will pay me for my food. I eat meat. I don't mind if folks excise it from their diet for medical or for ethical reasons, but I don't feel shame for it. Don't like it? Don't eat it. But never mind what is on other peoples' plates. Worked when you were five, it still works today...

I was a pescetarian for a time mainly because I don't like the treatment of animals throughout most of the livestock industry. I caved, because buffalo wings are delicious.

I still care, I'm just too weak to stand behind my conviction, and I rationalized it by thinking that it didn't really matter if I ate meat or not, it wasn't going to change a damn thing.

I don't know who you are. I don't know what you want. If you are looking for steaks, I can tell you I don't have any. But what I do have are a very particular set of blogs; blogs I have acquired over a very long career of being a pretentious, holier-than-thou prick. Blogs that make me a nightmare for people like you. If you cram some tofu down your throat now, that'll be the end of it. I will not look for you, I will not pursue you. But if you don't, I will look for you, I will find you, and I will write embarrassing things about you to strangers on the internet.

The only time I've ever been annoyed at someone else's diet was when we had a friend round for dinner. He brought his new girlfriend, and phoned 45 minutes before they showed up to tell me that she couldn't eat eggs, dairy, gluten or meat. Which scuppered every course I'd planned.

Militant vegans are the worst enemies ofveganism.

I'd go with "second worst".  Worst would probably be that veganism is stupid on its face, corresponding to no consistent dietary or ethical stance whatsoever in a manner that the average five-year-old can easily pick apart.

//Vegetarianism is a bit self-destructive, but logically consistent and corresponds in some broad strokes to short-term diets that are sorta valid.  So I'm not just making a "hurr, bacon is tasty, not eating it is crazy" crack, I'm genuinely critiquing the intellectual capacity of vegans here.

Aside from those who are vegatarian because of religious views, I would guess than something less than 5% of vegatarians really are vegatarian for any health or ethics related reason and tha the other 95%+ are vegatarian for the smug sense of superiority they imagine it confers upon them.

If you are a vegan then please SHUT THE fark UP about it.  We really, really, REALLY, don't care and are unimpressed.

It was even worse for the author of the late-lamented "Voracious Eats" blog. The author, Tasha, could not survive on a vegan diet. She was going into complete organ-system shutdown when her doctor convinced her she had to change or die. So she started eating some meat and dairy and became much healthier.

The response from the "vegan community" was horrible. She was slandered. She was abused. She was insulted. She even got a big helping of violent threats. Meanwhile a lot of prominent vegans quietly wrote to her about their own meat-eating and praised her for being braver than they were. Eventually it got to be too much, so she shut down her blog.

You should never let up on your friend for dating an idiot over the gluten thing.  No one who doesn't already have to keep their own lunchbox with them at all times (e.g. Celiac disease) has any kind of meaningful negative sensitivity to gluten whatsoever.  If you think you do, then the name for your condition is "hypochondria", probably mixed with a hefty dose of "gullibility", which I hear they recently removed from the dictionary.

Or, to put it in shorter terms, for your friend's sake I hope that woman was hot as hell and absolutely mad in the sack, because that's a lot of stupid to put up with.

//If someone's claiming to have issues with both gluten and dairy and isn't, y'know, dead already, then it would take the Dohvakin to call bullshiat loud enough on that crap.

Veganism is a religion, not a lifestyle choice, and it takes on more and more unpleasant characteristics of traditional religion all the time. That's why a large fraction of vegans are obnoxious, self-righteous fundamentalists: it's not about individual dietary choices for them, but about a purity crusade. Their diet may be impractical and in man cases hypocritical, but that's irrelevant to them because it's all about feeling superior.
 
2013-06-25 01:31:50 PM
Fake or horribly misguided. Telling people to kill themselves is not exactly in-line with being vegan.

Jim_Callahan: I'd go with "second worst". Worst would probably be that veganism is stupid on its face, corresponding to no consistent dietary or ethical stance whatsoever in a manner that the average five-year-old can easily pick apart.


ORLY? Do tell. Difficulty: no straw men. Although I have little idea what a "dietary stance" would be. Feel free to stick to the actual ethical argument rather than try to explain that one.

I can understand someone being a vegetarian, but vegan eludes me.  Seriously?  No honey?  That makes no sense, or wearing wool?  I love chapping vegans I've encountered who drink.  How can you drink beer?  It's the byproduct of yeast, a living organism!

A truly vegan diet will result in the death of the person engaging in it.  There are certain proteins that we need to survive that only come from animal products.  We're what you would call obligate omnivores.  Modern chemistry may allow you to get around that, to a large extent - but there's no quality ethical argument as to why I shouldn't eat animals or animal products but can eat plants, which are also living creatures.

I've been a vegetarian since I was 13, though recently I began eating mussels and oysters since I can't find a reasonable ethical objection to them (they have no nervous system and therefore can't feel pain, and are generally sustainably farmed). I also recently started eating sardines because my doctor told me I could either eat oily fish twice a week or take blood pressure medication - so, you know, sardines it is. I guess that makes me a pescatarian or whatever.

Anyway, CSB:

Years ago, a good friend started dating a vegetarian lady. He himself wasn't a vegetarian. When she found out I was a vegetarian, she immediately started peppering me with questions, attempting to find out my street cred. When she found out I ate milk and eggs, I was lambasted for not being "vegetarian enough". Whenever the three of us hung out, it came up at least once. There were always these passive-aggressive comments whenever we'd go out to eat. What was stupid was that she was dating a guy who ate meat with every meal. I guess it was the whole "heretics are worse than heathens" thing...

Yeah, she finally ended up dumping him because he laughed at Clerks 2's donkey scene, which meant he was laughing at donkey torture.

FTA:  It must be a truly miserable existence to spend so much time tracking down, attacking, and censoring anyone whose lifestyle choices aren't identical to your own.

You've described extremism in a nutshell. It's not enough to adopt it yourself - you must also tell others what to do, too, and if it involves public shaming and harassment, well, that will teach them. Their belief system is right, yours is wrong, and so you must be taught otherwise even if it means harming you to do so.

For the folks who run & support this website, tell me - how are you any different from a Christian extremist that shames and harasses women that seek abortions, or an Islamic extremist who shames and harasses women that seek to work outside the home?

There's nothing wrong with vegans, Christians, or Muslims - it's extremism, in any form, that's the problem.

Honey and wool require animal use. Humans can get by without those things.

And I'm pretty sure yeast aren't animals, and not sentient.
