*** PARTIAL POLL RESULTS IN POST #42 ***





A friend of mine told me that she believes more males than females, who become vegetarian ultimately become vegan.



I wonder if that's true.



In this poll I won't define vegan or vegetarian since everyone and his/her dog has an opinion on exact definition of those words. You just decide for yourself whether you are vegan or vegetarian.

It may also help if you can count up the people in your lives.



1. I don't know any male vegans

2. I think I know three male vegetarians

3. I know four female vegans

4. And five female vegetarians



If enough people answer about others in their lives I may add it all up and release on final tally.

I am female. I also voted "vegetarian" instead of vegan, because even though I'm TRYING to be vegan, I've backslid a few times lately and honestly can't call myself a vegan if I eat cheese and wear leather.

I'm a vegetarian (and a girl) and personally know 2 male and 1 female vegetarians and 1 female vegan. Hmpf, I thought I knew more! *thinks hard* No, that's all of them, not counting people who are trying to become veggie.

I'm a female vegetarian



I used to be a member of a college Animal Rights group. When I was a member, 4 of the 5 group leaders were male vegans. One was a female vegan. I'm afraid they're the only vegans that I've ever spoken to face-to-face. I don't believe that this is an accurate portrayal of the number of male to female vegans out there, however. I believe that the majority of vegans and vegetarians in this country (USA) are female.

I am a vegan, female.

I know one vegetarian female.

I thought I knew one male vegetarian until I saw him eating chicken soup at lunchtime! So, that would be a no to male vegetarian.

Blah, don't mess yourself up trying to spell fake words.



I can't believe how many more females there are here...



I know one female vegetarian.... I know a bunch of faces that come into the veg dining hall though, and I think it averaged out that more males were vegan. Or maybe I was just paying attention to the male vegans more....

I am a female...something. No lable fits overly well at this point but I never eat animal flesh so...yeah. I know two male vegetarians and have heard that there are a few more at work, plus some vegans. I have met several female vegemuhtarians who sometimes eat fish, and I think four vegetarian females.



Most of us are pretty laid back about it though and would likely set off the un-veg alarms with our habits ranging from two of them eating meat if it's just going to be thrown out to many of us drinking wine. That's not to say that any of us are laid back emotionally though; we are all passionate about the cause, we just have different ideas about what to do about it. Feel free to discount any or all of my lot if you like.

Aren't all vegans also vegetarians?



Anyway, I've noticed the same trend in the poll statistics at VegWeb. The total population of vegetarians answering the poll is heavily female, but the much smaller number saying they are also vegan is dominated by males.

i'm a female vegan.



i've encountered a few male vegetarians and a few females who claimed vegetarianism (sometimes while eating chicken, which is part of why i doubt most of them) in my lifetime. i know of one fellow ling major that is vegan and female. other than that, i've never randomly encountered someone who actually mentioned being vegan at the time. my boyfriend is vegan, but only because i am.
