Since you seem to have a low opinion of vegetarians and vegans, maybe someone else would be a better advocate.

I am not going to call the police for some immature jerk shoving bacon in my face. I told him and the others to reflect on how they would feel if someone did that to their mother. I certainly don't need the cops to help me wipe pig fat off my face.

This forum is intended for veg*ns, and someone who is physically incapable of eating meat but would gladly do so again if he could, who talks about how lovingly he "harvested" animals, isn't a veg*n of any sort and doesn't belong here.
I would understand if somebody gets here after becoming veg* for health reason. It's a nice place to find recipes and social tips. Also a nice place to think about ethics and see how horrible animal factories are. Realizing it after becoming vegetarian just makes the switch more solid and helps leaning towards veganism.

Absolutely. But please, if I have to explain to another "veg*n" that a head of cabbage doesn't feel pain, I'm going to explode.
I'm sorry most of you have troubles living in an omni society. I cope with it rather well and need social contacts too much to not make the effort. All vegetarians are not aware of what a sentient being is and some plants communicate with chemicals so, yes, sometimes a little explanation is necessary. Even for things that sound obvious to us. (for many people fish = no scream = vegetable)

Not everyone can contribute the same way but when all views are combined the reasons to go vegan becomes natural.



That would be the general consensus of the forum.
Vegetarians might be more quiet than vegans here but still, they have a section so I'm not sure we can call it a consensus. We're in the compost heap, so be can find here vegans, vegetarians and other weirdoes.

Advocate? No. I would like to let people know what menu options are available at different restaurants, and if they taste good, are well prepared, and if the place has good service. I read a lot of restaurant reviews, but they never talk about veggie options available. I think it would be worth knowing. I would certianly like to know.

Why would you say I have a low opinion of vegetarians and vegans? Because I raise issues and ask questions? Because I say things that someone else might not agree with? Lighten up a little.

Calling the cops is your choice, but if it wasn't enough to call the police, then it wasn't enough to be called a violent confrontation. But it was still a battery.

Yes, it does bother me
I prefer not to be around meat because of the smell and the fact that it came from a tortured animal. Slaughter alone is abuse. It's not a choice that I will respect, because there are so many other things you can eat besides animal flesh, dairy and eggs.

All we are is dust in the wind
