Vegans, I love them but... (This is also about "carnists")
Please just hear me out. I know vegans. I have vegan friends. Veganism is actually a pretty healthy option. I own multiple dogs. I am against hunting for fur or sport. I eat animal products. While I will rarely eat meat, none of my vegan friends criticize me when I do. I am more than happy to provide them with vegan options when we go out or when they visit and I support their choices. But, this website is so filled with hate on both sides which is why I was scared at first to post this opinion, but I have to say this. It is completely fine to argue with people who shame you and your beliefs, and it is also fine for people to argue with you if you shame their beliefs. If someone tries to explain their beliefs to you or you to them, then neither of you have any right to discredit or shame each other. But if you try to convert people to the diet of your choice by shaming them or crying about how they’re evil murderers or crazy health nuts not getting nutrition, it doesn’t matter who is right, you’ll always be in the wrong. Also, it doesn’t matter what you eat. If you eat too much you will gain weight. There are plenty of meat eating and vegan animals and nobody criticizes them and the animals don’t argue so why do we?
