The website is called "stereotypes are cool". I looked at a few other postings and it seemed that they are predominantly being voted up (including much more offensive ones than this). I voted down for you but I suspect that it won't make much of a difference; anyone who's on that site's probably not worth our time.

What the **** are you asking that for? And why don't you even have an avatar? What kind of a ****ing weirdo are you? Stop bothering people. Frankly, just go to Hell as far as I'm concerned.

Most people I meet have an extremely negative view of vegans.
In situations where impressions are important, like meeting a new boss or co-worker, I usually just lie and say I'm a strict vegetarian that also doesn't eat any egg or dairy. I don't use the word vegan until they've gotten to know me as a person.

While stereotypes persist, the 550 young people I politely handed a booklet to detailing factory farm animal abuse the other day would not describe my demeanor as shrill or uptight. In fact most of the ones who stopped to talk with me ended up shaking my hand when they left. If you want people to have a better opinion of vegans, you've got to get out there in the world and present yourself as a friendly, compassionate vegan.

I agree. And I think we should not be afraid to describe ourselves as vegans. The stigma surrounding that word will not break down until people start to realize that regular people they like to hang out with can also be vegan.

Of course people have a negative view of veg*ns - we're counterculture, our lifestyle (whether we say it straightforward or not) implies a criticism of theirs, and animal rights activists have stirred up a lot of bad publicity. The Veg campaign faces the same problem Muslims do - a few bad apples makes everyone think the whole bunch is ruined.

Oh hell no, that arrogant vegan attitude makes me want to push it further in.
