"I say we forget this business and run."
In that regard I do apologize, particularly as my original post draft was going to explicitly mention that such are a very small (and mostly just vocal) minority / proportion of vegans overall but was cut in the end.I'm not going to talk about the pros and cons of vegetarianism/veganism. But what I will say is this: the people who complain about the fanatical veg people seem to far outweigh the actual fanatics. Even on the Internet, I've hardly interacted with any fanatics. In real life? I've met zero people like that. None. Now admittedly this is my own perspective based on who I meet, but I do live in Los Angeles. We have no shortage of veg people, and I'm friends with quite a few. None of them are pushy. But I do meet people fairly regularly (and am even friends with one) who complain about the pushy ones.
Funny how that works.
I get that contextually it’s kind of inferred that one’s talking about bad eggs when going on about fucky interactions / rhetoric, but I’ve gone on about implicit language on here long enough that I really shouldn’t do the same.
