A current cultural phenomenon.

Being a vegan is popular trend among the youth of today. These teens and young adults claim to not eat or use any animal products. What most of these trend following kids fail to realize is that many things they don't even know about contain animal products.

Many vegans like to hang out together and go get tattooed and pierced while listening to "hardcore" music and being "straight edge".

Most tattoo inks contain animal by-products.

Vegans will fade out as the next trend becomes popular.
There will be a great surge in the tattoo removal business.
Everyone I know is a vegan, so I became one too!

Awwwwww, we saved those cute cows! Ooooh, look at that leather jacket!

A person that does not realize that there are more small animals brutally killed per year by the machinery used to harvest grain than all of the cows and pigs that are slaughtered for our consumption.

A person that choses to eat vegetables because they're easier to catch.

A person that does not realize that plants are arguably just as alive as animals. They grow, they reproduce, and they respond to external stimuli, just like an animal. As a result, vegans promote the "ethical" slaughtering of millions of plants.
I'm a vegan and I don't want to think about all of the animals that are being killed for me to eat and have clothes. I also don't consider the rights of things that aren't cute and cuddly, like plants.

1. Someone who does not eat meat, milk, eggs, or any other product that comes from animals (even honey).

2. Murderer of innocent vegetables.

3. Thinks a meatless diet stops animal suffering when it actually adds to it, since raising and harvesting vegetables mean that animals lose their habit, as well as:
• Being killed by pesticides
• Mangled by machinery
• Trampled beneath the tractors
• Shot dead by farmers protecting the crops from pests
• Being torn apart by the farmer's dogs who guard the crops.

4. Some vegans live and let live, accepting and allowing others to eat meat and milk without hassling them. But some push their views onto others, becoming violent if people do not agree with them (Veganazi).
Hey, vegans! Don't worry about all the rabbits who were killed so that Cris P. Carrot enters your stomach and not theirs!
I mean, isn't it better that after they were alive to experience the incredible pain of being mutilated? It's oh so much better than being killed instantly and almost painlessly by a hunter or slaughter equipment, isn't it?

One who tries not to eat ANY animal products, not even milk or cheese.
I've never seen a vegan around.

One who clings to an absurd, phoney "ethic" that is wholly unsupported.

"Vegans" are, almost without exception, juvenile, whiny, soppy, clueless urbanites. They ALWAYS start by claiming to live a "cruelty-free" lifestyle, until the horrible flaw in their own claim is pointed out to them; namely, that tens of thousands of animals are killed in producing the supermarket veggies they happily shovel into their big, fat, gaping pie-holes.

"Vegans" then ALWAYS retreat to claiming they somehow cause "less harm" than non-vegans. This is also unsupportable; someone who buys a half of a grass-fed beef (many, many meals for one death) is certainly causing "less harm" than a whiny, drippy "vegan" shoveling supermarket rice into their cake-hole (many deaths for one meal.)

"Veganism" is sanctimonious self-righteousness parading as an "ethic;" the "ethical" claims of "vegans" are recognized as false by anyone with more than three active brain cells. "Vegans" follow no moral principle; only a cheap, easy, and stupid rule: "Don't put animal parts in your mouth."

The animals killed by "vegans" matter to them not at all - NOT AT ALL - as long as they don't have to see the carcasses.
