Somebody who, despite living an affluent lifestyle of commercialism and consumption, thinks that they are making a positive impact on the planet as long as they eat lentils instead of cheese. Vegans are almost always teenage girls who think that the natural world consists of harmless pink flowers and rainbows and that there is no such thing as the food chain.
"The vegan felt better about herself because she drove her gas-guzzling pollutionmobile ten miles down the road and back, killing countless airborne insects along the way, just to top up on soy milk"

A person who realizes that eating animal products and by products is not ok.Knows that everyone isnt vegan and accepts that.This person usually also realizes that billions of rabbits,mice,insects, and other animals are killed in grain processing,and resents that,but does not understand how people who eat grains AND animal products can say this because these things are equally cruel.Has less percentage of getting various cancers than meat eaters and vegetarians.Contrary to popular belief, actually cares about other people and their ideas because everyone has the right to express their feelings for or against veganism.
Dude: Hey want this well done steak?

Vegan: Nah, I'm vegan.

Dude: Wow, how do you survive? I mean doesnt milk have protein and stuff?

Vegan: Yup, but soy milk has the same amount and less fat and I can take supplements if I feel like I'm not getting my vitamins.

Dude:Oh ok, I've never had anyone explain it to me that way, I guess vegans arent that bad after all.

Vegan:Aww thanks, can you pass the peas?

Ruthless murderer of fruits and vegetables.
Mike: Oh, hey Ja- Oh my God!!! What are you doing? What did that colony of peaceful All-Organic, Free-Range, Non-Pesticide-Covered Broccoli ever do to you? Vegan!

Jack: Die! Die!!!

Someone who chooses to not eat anything animal.

A vegan who puts sufficient effort in to learning how to eat a healthy vegan diet is not unhealthy and skeletal looking, like some vegans who lack knowledge of what constitutes a healthy vegan diet.

A vegan puts effort in to their food choices that goes beyond "convenience food" and is healthier than the Standard American Diet--which gives them a good chance of not dieing from one of the major causes of old-age related death in the Western world--heart disease--and perhaps even cancer, depending on the diet.

A vegan learns that cows milk or other animal's milk are not the only sources of calcium. Protein and other things thought to only come from animals, can also come from vegetarian sources. In fact, with a little culinary knowledge it is easy to eat a wide variety of tasty vegetarian dishes--India's been doing it for thousands of years!

A vegan may know that it is not only protein that accounts for muscle growth, any knowledgeable body-builder can attest to that. Nutrients such as Zinc, b-vitamins, and a generally healthy diet are absolutely critical to muscle growth. Something meat is generally high in, but can be had from a vegan diet.

Avi R. Lehyani, a vegan body builder, who resides in Israel and is on the website veganbodybuilding dot com, is proof that vegans can be strong--contrary to some peoples ignorance. Who can bench press 380lbs and can rack lift 836lbs.
Guy who has experience with one vegan before learning about veganism: Frank just become a vegan, he's been raving about it for the last few months to everyone he knows! ... judging and praising people intensely. He looks very skinny, he's obviously not eating right. He probably needs some meat in his diet or something to get his calcium... there's 'no way' he can get enough of those in his diet!

Guy after seeing the people from veganbodybuilding dot com and having been a vegan for several years:

I had no idea vegans could be so strong until I saw Avi Lehyani, these guys know how to be strong AND vegan, what a seeming contradiction! When I first went vegan I had no idea how to be anything over 120lbs, then i started eating right and I gained over 10lbs a month, what a difference healthy eating makes! It IS possible to be strong and be vegan!

Someone who does not use any animal products (which is near impossible). It has been proven that to be a vegan one must have a ridiculous superiority complex. This is often mistaken by the vegan and other vegans as enlightenment. This massive ego stimulation often results in insulting "meat-eaters" undeservedly, and the delusion that they are actually making a change. This also involves constant bragging about how much they love the lifestyle.
1. "If you are not a vegan, you are a terrible, terrible person incapable of feeling compassion or love because you can stomach the thought of killing a cow. Hold on, I have to finish my tofu and soy milk."
2. "As a vegan, I would sooner kill one human infant than two cows."
(Note: Number 2 is a direct quote from a vegan I know.)

An idealistic person whose idea comes off as noble (or so they hope) but really is impratical. They fail to realize that harvesting crops always kills free animals that are caught in the combines that collect their veggies and fruit. Regardless of this obvious fact (which is supported by several university studies) vegans tend to be holier-than-thou bunch with a small minority of polite and tactful people. Vegans will often support terrorist groups such as PeTA and ALF/ELF and claim the end justifies the means. Nevermind PETA officers have been caught with lots of leather shoes and belts and PETA euthanizes thousands of animals a year. It's what "in" right now for idealistic college students who have life pretty good. Veganism is generally not what one would consider healthy or natural, nor is the current trend of high meat consumption, but you need meat and dairy in your diet. Veganism also opposes genetically engineered food, claiming it is unnatural to create food that is better suited to survive the harsh climate of drought and help ease world hunger. Idealism beats Realism, right?
Joe being a vegan, asked the waitor at a MEXICAN restraunt if they cooked their beans with pork. When he was given the obvious answer of "Si!" he scoffed and tried to educate the ignorant brown man about veganism. The Mexican guy ignored the stupid gringo and rubbed his pubes on Joe's food for being an arsehole (real life experience).
