It all depends on "how" vegan you are. I've always been in it for the animals, and I'm the kind who won't sit at a table if there's anything remotely dead on it.
But if vegans start rejecting omnivores, that steps on the whole higher life philosophy.
Er, I don't take any supplements. I have soya milk, sure, that's been fortified veganly with B12, so if you count that, ok, but I don't take anything.line wrote:Problem is that a lot of scientists claim (organic) meat, eggs and fish/seafood are primary ingredients in a healthy diet. Afterall, vegans have to take some supplements..
Not at all eating animals or their byproducts is more of a ethical and enviromental matter as long as there is "healthy organic free range meat" available on the market. The only experts claiming this is unhealthy for you to eat are the ones who have moral and/or envioromental issues about it. ..and I believe they all (both the pro's and the anti's) twist their facts to fit eigther their moral standards or whoever employed them.
Agree! I've been asked out in the supermarket a few times, I take one look in their basket, see the meat, and I'm like 'er, no', even before I've bothered to really check out the rest of him!estaphuam wrote:I wasn't personally demurring what you were saying In actuality, I agree with everything you say.
For me, since I am not in a relationship, and was not in one when I became vegan, I would never consider an omnivore for a partner, nor am I too big on socializing around omnivores because it simply becomes impossible.
My concern about vegans rejecting omnivores stems from my behaviour as well. I found that even unconsciously I tend to shy away from a person eating meat. Is it fair? no. But is it natural? Most definitely.
