I have a slight problem with this.
Veganism specifically refers to the exclusion of animal products in your diet.
I'm a vegan who has three dogs. I wasn't vegan when we got the dogs, and I believe it would be detrimental for them to have to switch to vegetarian dog food when they are used to what they are eating.
now does this make me not a vegan? No, I am still a vegan. I continue to abstain from using animal products in my food and in my lifestyle products.
Veganism and ethics while can be closely related and one can effect the other, but just because someone is unethical doesn't mean they can't be vegan. Just like someone who is an ethical person may or may not be vegan.
Veganism, imo, refers specificallyto your consumption. AR and other things, while good and a great cause to stand behind...they shouldn't be lumped into veganism - those are animal rights!
---I aslo think that there are way too many definitions about this stuff. I consider myself someone who cares about what the put in their body, and that's it
