That's ok, I don't see broccoli as food

I am veganist.
It is glorification of malnourishment as a hobby.

I met some vegans on the Appalachian Trail.  They ate really well, and were attentive to their diets and nutrition, and were just as healthy as everyone else.

I also met a vegan who pretty much survived on Oreos.

So, basically, they're just like us.

I mean it's made by bees that have been enslaved.

#1. "I really don't care"

I think the "I'm a vegan" urinal meme is kind of backwards. It seems that meat eaters are far more prompt to boast about their diets than vegans, these days.

I'm not a vegan, but I'm out of shape and just about recovered from sciatica that was mostly caused by a shiatty sedentary lifestyle. This guy is a vegan, and I'm sure all y'all would love to tell him to his face that he's a pussy:

'What if you were on a deserted island? Would you eat meat to survive? But my simple answer: If there are animals on this island, what are they eating to stay alive?

What if the answer to the second question is OTHER ANIMALS?

Do vegans consider insects meat?

Are meat eaters regularly shat upon by dim bulbs who think they're clever by saying things like "for every animal you don't eat, I'll eat three," "my food eats your food" or similarly stupid bons mots?

Probably not, but that's because in the vast majority of the world, meat is commonly desired but it's also a luxury. Only in Western countries do these arguments take place. It's rich people problems.

Vegans DO seem to write more about their experience of stepping outside the norm. Again, that's a privilege.

It's sad this vegan feels the need to write all this. They wouldn't have to if people would just mind their own business.

Why must humans be so threatened by somebody who doesn't live their life the same way the observer does?

It's not like Vegans go around telling everybody they're wrong about what they're eating.

Also, none of those answers were snappy. They were just either well-thought out arguments or just the author saying, "meh, it works for me".

Well, yeah, when people react to your dietary choices by shiatting all over you and going all hurr durr im a trex rawr derp it's not surprising that vegans go on the defensive.

I mean, I'm not trying to say that no vegans are twats, but if they've found their groove and like what they're doing, who are any of us to judge them?

/I'm also reminded of a couple of bits from QI; one, when the panel is presented with a sandwich to eat, and they gave Romesh Ranganathan a toast sandwich, the other being when Sarah Pascoe appeared and spoke out against vegan meat alternatives.
//Which is fair, it's probably more work to create faux meat than to eat a healthy vegan diet that doesn't pretend to be meat.

That's all complete gibberish to me. You know how you meet IT people who use acronyms you don't understand in a conversation? It's like that.

Maybe that's why people hate vegans, because they expect everyone to know what the hell they are talking about.

I've been vegetarian most of my adult life, and vegan off and on for about 5 or 6. It's a lot more convenient now than it used to be, and there are a lot more restaurants that offer vegan options now. I still get those same questions pretty regularly, though.

If you don't know QI, Romesh Ranganathan or Sarah Pascoe, you've got the entire internet to educate yourself, and I'd suggest you're in for a good time.

Personally, I'd avoid Rom's earlier work, because he leaned heavily on being an angry asshole in his early shtick. These days, he does The Ranganation and a bunch of travelogues which are pretty good.

He also did this:

Well, Rom did do very well in producing a backwards video, but if people doing stupid things is not your thing, I guess I understand.

/His travelogues are pretty good though.

Pretty much all the questions she cited are just ignorant/assholish bs.

Although I agree (and she does too!) that most products marketed as specific meat substitutes kinda suck ass.

But I use tofu all the time. In fact I made a damned good tofu (and egg) pad Thai just a couple nights ago:

Then the night after, I used leftover uncooked tofu and pork chorizo to good effect in a Cantonese noodle stir fry.

I can understand being a vegetarian. I still like the variety, but I get it.

Being vegan? I just can't bring myself to trust anyone who would voluntarily give up eggs and dairy. No fried eggs, omelets, tasty bits in fried rice or noodles? No cheese, yogurt, butter, ghee? No real ice cream?!

Maybe if that person was already lactose intolerant. But hell, barring the kind that involves literal war crimes in the bathroom after eating dairy, most people I know with mild to moderate symptoms just take that handy pill before partaking and then go to town.

Yeah, I know you got some funnies with that comment but completely agree. The urinal vegan meme has swung completely in the opposite direction.

I don't get the backlash to the meat substitutes. Many are shiatty, but some are awesome. And who cares if it's trying to be meat?  You know why?  Because meat's delicious. I don't understand why meat eaters feel so put out by vegans/vegetarians wanting that same enjoyment, only within the confines of their preferred diet. If anything they should take it as a farking compliment.

We've gone to about an 80% plant based diet. I could probably do strict vegetarian for a while if I tried, but I do love me some dairy and meats.

I love "where do you get your protein?" When I ask most people what protein is, how much I should have and its sources most cannot answer correctly. And I'm not vegan. Or vegetarian. It just seems to freak people out when I don't eat meat. Sometimes I go weeks and weeks without meat. "But, but, were do you get your protein?"

Vegans are deniers of the one true faith which I have found on face book. The one true faith is Pescatarian. Tilapia are the evil destroying this earth and must be eaten and eliminated. They are a spicy treat when cubed and  blended with plain tofu on crustless wonder bread with iceberg lettuce and vegan miracle whip. This year I am going full out with golden raisins. Whoo hoo!

Thats because they are farking morons who draw a line of stupid a mile wide.

Considering that a vast majority of fruits require pollination to be made, what the fark is the difference between honey and fruit? The fruit wouldnt exist without the direct impact of the insect, the honey doesnt exist without the direct impact of the bee. As such, almost all fruit is in fact an "animal product" because they could not exist without them, so how could any rational person say honey is off limits but fruit is ok

I've lived in Wisconsin my whole life and recently found out venison bacon is a thing.  Is not made from belly.   They pretty much make a flat meat loaf and smoke it before slicing. Flavor is good but the texture is not that of typical bacon.

I'd try that duck bacon for sure.
