Someone who chooses not to consume animal products. A vegan does not eat meat, dairy products or eggs from animals. They also do not wear leather, wool, silk and other animal derived materials. They often have to deal with people who seem intimidated by people who choose not to support the harming of animals.
I think that just because I can fit something in my mouth that I have to eat it, I could easily get by without meat but I choose not to out of fear of being 'PC' and I have absolutely no idea that you can easily eat a fully balanced, nutritionally sound, diet without consuming animal products... hence I am not a vegan. I do, however, like to display my ignorance by posting mind numbingly stupid and totally unfounded criticisms of veganism on websites because it makes me feel special.

A person who follows the diet and/or lifestyle that promotes not using any animal products or byproducts.

The vegan diet and lifestyle are both impossible to follow to the fullest, so most vegans tend to stop when it becomes inconvenient. For example, animal products are used to vulcanize rubber and process steel. So a true vegan would be forced to shun most anything found in an industrialized nation, notably things such as cars, buses, airplanes and bicycles. Also, the vegan diet does not and cannot supply vitamin B12, as this essential vitamin only comes from meat and dairy. So a vegan must either take vitamin supplements, (which one way or another come from an animal) give up the diet altogether, or face B12 deficiency; which can cause brain damage.

Generally, vegans tend to ignore such glaring contractions and problems, preaching that they are the moral elite; even if they happen to be wearing leather shoes.
Vegans may be well intentioned, but their belifs are undeniably flawed.

A vegan is simply a practicing human herbivore.

All humans are herbivore by design.

That is an indisputable fact. (note: refer to Dr. Mills' "Comparative Anatomy of Eating" for a detailed analysis in chart format.)

Diet is the principle mode of earthly interaction and exchange. It is an essential feature of ecology that creatures function within certain behavioral 'niches' including dietary.

This is what enables nature's cooperative and supportive mechanisms to function and thus continuously renew and support all life. To not understand what we humans are designed to eat is so basic a misunderstanding that it has engendered many other destructive and self defeating behavioral forms including war and elitism.

This practical misunderstanding of our true herbivore natures also continues to bar our ability to commune as other animals do; openly, wholeheartedly and with a natural purity of spirit.
Vegans do not consume animal products or engage in behaviors that violate other animals' rights to life, habitat and nature determined experiences.

A vegan does not consume animal products of any kind, including meat, poultry, fish, dairy, eggs, honey, gelatin, or even white sugar, which is typically processed using animal bone. Most vegans avoid wearing leather, fur, wool, cashmere, felt, down, mohair, and silk because of the pain and death linked to animal-based fiber industries. Also Vegan's try to stay away from buying products from company's who preform animal testing.
Friend 1: Hey dude. Albertsons has a sale on Iams.
Vegan: Sorry, Can't buy it...they test on animals.
