The No True Scottsman is strong with that one.

(Nevermind that there are numerous reasons why one may choose to be vegan, which range from "Meat tastes bad" to "meat is not very healthy for you", to "meat is unnecessary", to "the vast majority of food animals are kept in terrible conditions, so to avoid feeding a system of cruelty, I abstain completely" to "Animals are friends not food!" and a huge number of slots between those. Of course, all those other reasons for being vegan arent REAL veganism, only the last category is! Because reasons!!) /s



Cool Runnings:
Maybe they are germanic, and dont like the way the german team was portrayed? ;)
Being vegan means not eating any animal based products, not just meat.
Not eating meat is vegetarian.

So every vegan is a vegetarian, but not every vegetarian is a vegan.

Either way, the last 2 reasons you noted would require something to be done about it. But what?

A) Releasing all food animals from captivity.
    To where?
     We would need to convert areas that produce food for them into areas that produce food for humans.

B) Mass slaughter.
      But that does not sound like a logical or ethical solution.

Also, some nutrients are difficult or impossible to get from plants. This would lead to increasing of prices of food supplements and people dying from food defficiencies.

And cool running isn't racist, but it's using stereotypes for humor. I can totally see that making someone uncomfortable (Yeah, maybe the Germans!), just show something else.

My mother thinks that vegans are the ones who eat vegetables AND dairy products, not vegetarians. The terminological fuck-ups like that irk me a bit, especially since my mother stubbornly believes that what she said is correct. She also believed that the German people are actually Aryans, but I corrected her on that a while ago.

There's a book in one of the humble bundles entitled: 'Angry Man Pounded by the Fear of His Latent Gayness Over a Dinosaur Transitioning Into a Unicorn'
The synopsis reads:
'When Carl’s bro sends him photos of a hot and sexy unicorn, he cant help getting turned on. But when Carl discovers that the unicorn of his dreams was once reality star and athlete, Bort Jenkins, a former tyrannosaurus rex from the show Borting Up With The Dinosaurs, Carl’s whole world turns upside down.

Terrified that he may be dinosexual, conservative Carl is now thrown into a whirlwind of self-destruction, culminating in a literal encounter with his sexual identity fears.

Soon enough, Carl finds himself in a hot gay gangbang with his physically manifested bigotry. But will this extreme pounding be enough to help this Carl learn that real love takes many forms?'

(Looking at his (her?) other books in the bundle, Mr Chuck Thingle appears to be an author of some oddity)

Ah, Mr Thingle. Yes, he writes "satire," or claims to.

Spoiler (click to show/hide)

Notable for being nominated by the more right-wing/conventional side of the Hugo Awards nomination panel in a humourous critique to tedious pandering to identity politics and other pinko dross such as the inclusion of black female writers. Mr Thingle had the perfect response.

Er, no, we're not cats.
I'm actually a vegetarian and I only rarely eat eggs and dairy – all just because I don't like those things, not for stupid moral reasons – and I'm not even protein deficient or anemic, somehow, despite having made less than zero effort to balance my diet.

I remember two of Thingle's books appearing on "The Worst Things For Sale". One was "Hit in the butt by my own butt" and another was "Hit in the butt by covefe".

Pounded in the Butt by My Book "Pounded in the Butt by My Own Butt",
Pounded in the Butt by My Book "Pounded in the Butt by My Book 'Pounded in the Butt by My Own Butt'",
Pounded in the Butt by My Book "Pounded in the Butt by My Book 'Pounded in the Butt by My Book "Pounded in the Butt by My Own Butt"'",
Pounded in the Butt by My Book "Pounded in the Butt by My Book 'Pounded in the Butt by My Book "Pounded in the Butt by My Book 'Pounded in the Butt by My Own Butt'"'"
and finally
Pounded In The Butt By My Book "Pounded In The Butt By My Book 'Pounded In The Butt By My Book "Pounded In The Butt By My Book 'Pounded In The Butt By My Book "Pounded In The Butt By My Own Butt"'"'

Can I get an honest answer to this question: Has anyone here bought one of Tingle books, even if ironically?
