|Iridium||Hmm yes comparing those that eat burgers to serial killers while running around a steak house in a weird costume is most likely not the best way to get people to go vegan.|

There is truth in that statement. Sometimes being too aggressive regardless of being 'right' will dissuade people who don't want to pushed out of their ignorance
I don't know that I've completely converted anyone, but I know I've caused them to think more about what they eat, and reduce their meat intake, or switch from dairy milk to non dairy. I know if I pushed it too much they would shut down and simply not listen or change at all.
Getting people to try new things and discover on their own there are lots more options on what to eat is a really big deal. My lunch mates now bring hummus, salads, make my spinach dip with tofu, and drink smoothies. Thats a big change for them.
It's really hard when people don't realize how many options they have

Disagree more than agree. What puts people off of giving up meat is their own lack of will.
I do think the aggressive attitude some vegans have is off putting; I have seen a few have attitudes that even I hate, but they are the minority. It's just such a popular thing to complain about the attitude of vegans, that people do it even if said attitude wasn't that bad or if the person complaining about it actually never experienced said attitude first-hand and just heard about it online.

"Aggressive vegans are putting people off giving up meat"
What do you think of this? Agree or disagree?
My first thought is to wonder whether the abolitionists who fought to free the slaves were worried about being too pushy because they didn't want to offend slave owners?
