I think in general European produced dairy and egg products are of a higher quality than the US. For the most part they don't preservatives, etc., things are more naturally made and the cows are not injected with synthetics (as far as I know).

Okay, this just so makes me want to make a thread about how to "un-veganize" recipes.



This recipe calls for ground flaxseeds. No despair! Use eggs instead!

BeanLady: You joined in 2003, and you're asking this? Surely you're not asking this but making a point. My answer to which is, this board is here to support all kinds of veg*ns.

Your belief that it is ok to use certain animals because they wouldn't exist otherwise is bizarre.



Your theory on innocence is nonsensical.



Please elaborate (at your own risk).



How can anyone be surprised that vegans (or any thinking people) would take issue with the strange comments and poor logic displayed in the op?

Not to mention, she started another thread almost exactly like this back in November, but without the American bashing. https://www.veggieboards.com/boards/s...ad.php?t=46025

Good point. It does seem a bit trolling, now that you mention it. I didn't realize she was a long term member.

i'm in boy short underwear...



but to be honest, i don't understand why bash americans or anybody trying to better the world by choosing to abstain from any or all animal products - we are all trying, be we l/o or vegan. i chose veganism. i wake up every day and choose to be vegan, just like i choose to actually get out of bed every day and chose to brush my teeth. that works for me. somebody else may wake up every day and choose to be a lacto-ovo or some variation thereof. it doesn't make them any lesser of a person or any greater of a person because they are still making a conscious effort to better the world. it is when that effort by you or by me or by anybody is no longer conscious, but rather done on autopilot. then - are we still working ot better the world, or just coasting without checking in?

I'm wearing pyjamas with little chickens (or maybe they're ducks) in toques and scarves and mittens and little skis and skipoles on them. No actual chickens (or ducks) were harmed in the making of these pyjamas.

though the original tone was a little.. misguided perhaps... I'm not sure I'd post that, read the replies to follow, and come back myself. perhaps back in 2003 this place was vegan only and she left?



just a thought~ if you came here to ask a question (however your attitude at the moment), and recieved responses like that (enjoy your stinky cheese a cow & calf died for), would YOU come back to defend yourself?? Would you just move on?

if you ask a question or bring a topic up for discussion you are going to get discussion. otherwise what's the point?

I don't think VB has ever been vegan only and in fact i *think* you could be omni and post at one time.



back to the party. *puts on synergy's other sock*

As far as I know this place has never been vegan only.

Sorry, no benefit of the doubt for this OP. She posted the same kvetching "waaa...I love cheese, why is the board only for vegans?" thing months ago and got very nice and supportive replies. I guess she had to find a way to be a little more hostile to get the reaction she was looking for.
