However, you can't control other people. You can't pass a law preventing people who would embarrass veganism from calling themselves vegan. I think the better approach is not to give those views oxygen by paying attention to them and be actively involved with showing people what you, as a vegan, are about.

Kind of like vegans and their fake meat
beforewisdom wrote:Raw foodists are supposedly so serious about getting a superior state of health that they eschew many foods to get the best possible unadulterated nutrition...........so it doesn't make much sense to turn around and have a chochlate cake or soy ice cream after making those sacrifices. You can't tell me a slice of pie is less objectionable than a potato.

It's not easy when even the West Midlands Vegan Fayre has talks on hippy nonsense like "The Miracle of Fasting for Supreme Health & vitality & the magic of Apple Cider Vinegar" and "The Way of the Essenes With Julian Haynes, who lived for three years in the jungle learning Amazonian Shamanism and building a pyramid."
If I could be bothered to research the subject, I'd go to these talks just to heckle them.
which is nearly as bad as long term vegan foods suddenly having random lactose or whey ingredients such as ice cream cones, after 8 mints, dark choc digestives etc etc grrrr!muchluv wrote:Irritating, small little ambigous ingredients in seemingly vegan food. Like 'flavourings' or in this case 'sherry vinegar' - vinegar made from sherry. Sherry, if I remember correctly is usually not vegan. This being in a product from Marks and Spencer which I was given - and wasn't on the vegan societys list - but for all I know could be new so might be vegan just not on the list >: [
