There are just so many what ifs standing in the way of people being vegan right now. And of course most nonvegans are going to die without leather shoes.



So we've got:



1. Well, really a lot of first world nonvegans can't be vegan, because if there's a natural disaster, they think they might not be able to be vegan and survive



2. if they mentally put themselves in the place of subsistence farmers in Africa, they might not be able to be vegan



3. if they look at their teeth, they think they might perhaps possibly not be designed to be vegan



4. most nonvegans are going to die without leather shoes



I want to add:



5. The recipe calls for honey.



6. Some dairy farms treat the cows really, really nicely before they sending them to the slaughter house.





Can we reach 20?

12. What will I say to Uncle George when he offers me a cheese sandwhich? I hve to show love and respect to my family by eating the food they give me.

13. The world would be overpopulated with farm animals if we stop eating them. Or (14?) they'll become extincted if we stop breeding them for food.

14. Contrary to popular belief, vegans don't taste better....

15. All vegan cheeses are disgusting.

*AHIMSA* 08-07-2008 12:22 AM

15. I just don't like making a fuss at restaurants.



16. I don't eat cheese or eggs or milk or honey, I just eat things that HAVE those things in them.

Mr. Sun 08-07-2008 12:23 AM

18. Calves drink cows milk so why shouldn't I??? Do you think calves are more important than me?



edit: I think we're on 18 now. So close. I can't wait to have a milkshake.

*AHIMSA* 08-07-2008 12:23 AM

18. Vegans are the reason I am not vegan. They PUSH me to not be vegan because of how they act and what they say.



19. I only eat organic animal products.



20. I would if it weren't for milk chocolate!

22. I DONT WANT TO BE PALE,PASTY AND SICKLY

GhostUser 08-07-2008 12:52 AM

23. Relying on fortified food or supplements to get nutrition like vitamin B12 is against nature. As we all know, omnivores wouldn't touch any fortified processed food like cereal with a ten foot pole.

Mr. Sun 08-07-2008 12:52 AM

Well, we're over 20 reasons. I wonder if I should start the "Weaning off veganism" support thread. Who would be willing to join?

guinnesshero 08-07-2008 12:55 AM

I think you have started something now.This will probably keep going





24. I dont know how I would tell my family

GhostUser 08-07-2008 01:04 AM

25. Vegan men who eat soy are well endowed with man boobs.

That reminds me:



26. Mice are killed in the fields when vegan food is being produced, and that's just as bad as eating animals - so what's the difference if you're a vegan or an omni?



and the companion,



27. You can't be a perfect vegan anyway (like, even tires have animal products in them!), so why bother.

Sevenseas 08-07-2008 01:12 AM

28. The infamous Mr. Sun from VeggieBoards is vegan, and you don't want to end up like that guy!
