The point being, it seems like a slipperly slope to include everything in the Animal kingdom, because it gets REALLY messy when you have to exclude things like, (maybe a bad example) sponges.
An actual vegan, not someone that simply follows a vegan diet, wouldn't use animal products in clothes or other products (at least as much is possible in our society).

As a vegetarian who has routinely been offered chicken and fish under the premise that "some vegetarians eat chicken", I heartily support your refinement of my post

I guess the posts I don't get in this thread (and in the world at large, for that matter) are the ones that think it's funny to say (I'm paraphrasing) "Hurrr, I'm going to go eat something I think vegans will find especially repulsive." I have to assume the intent is to insult vegans as a whole, but I don't know.

Well, yeah. I guess you could come around with "I hope you get cancer from your charbroiled meat and die!", but why engage lol. It's usually all in good fun. And also usually from fat people

True, there's no reason to engage. I guess I just don't understand how it's funny to say something similar to what I paraphrased.

Hmm... While I agree that people saying "ZOMG JALAPENOS STUFFED WITH SAUSAGE AND CHEESE AND ROLLED IN BACON AND DEEP FRIED IN LARD SO GOOD" is a bit ridiculous and yes, just to make health-conscious people grossed out, labeling people fat without knowing who they are is pretty bad, too. You've said that several times in this thread, which is the only reason I'm pointing it out. Why even stoop to that level?

I'm a fat meat eater and I have to say that was funny.
True, (maybe a little hurtful), but FUNNY!!!

It may be a little low, especially considering how self conscious people are about their bodies. And I apologize for any hurt feelings. However I will say that out of the thousands of times I've been ridiculed for my diet throughout my life, it had never been by a healthy-figured carnivore. And I know it's because they are projecting/venting their dissatisfaction with how they feel with themselves as a result of their own poor choices on me. The guy who walks up to me at the barbecue with a stick on a plate, always fat. The lady who makes a show out of wrinkling her nose at the salad I'm eating at lunch (which isn't THAT often for gods sake) always fat. So forgive me if I'M a little jaded. It's wasn't easy growing up this way in a redneck community I assure you.

Well I was berated for using my experience as a device for simply sharing my thoughts on the topic earlier in this thread. I won't do the same to you, because I understand where you're coming from. While I love meat, and eat it daily, I am healthy, perhaps even low in weight. I do, however understand what you mean. Working in an office full of obese people has terrible qualities. I also get the "must be nice to be skinny" comments from overweight coworkers while I eat a burger or tacos, and then proceed to witness these same people consume the same, only in LARGER portions! It all comes down to this, though... Not everyone acts that way.
