So the other day my kids (who are vegans) asked me why vegans shouldn't eat eggs or drink milk. They said they understood about them not being healthy but they didn't understand why eating eggs or drinking milk would hurt animals.
So I explained it. I explained to them that it is okay to eat milk and eggs because vegans have no moral qualms about killing bugs with their motor vehicles. And it's not like they KILL the animals.
I don't think my son really cared but I'm fairly certain that my daughter will be vegetarian before too much longer. She's a big cheese omlette lover.

Don't lump all the vegans in one basket (and don't put all your eggs in one basket either). How do you know that there aren't vegans out there who drive VERY VERY VERY slowly so as not to kill the bugs?
I think this kind of generalisation is dangerous for veganism. It makes it sound like vegans are heartless beasts.
I'm sort of offended by this kind of talk. And I think this thread should go into the Compost Heap because it's disrespectful towards those vegans who are doing their very best to drive as slowly as they can.
