Ok now that is taking it to the unnecessary extreme. And they are just making it hard or them selves and being a pain in the ass for every one else. What exactly do they think is going to transfer over to there food? They know utensils get washed or at the very least rinsed. You can’t have flavors crossing dishes anyway.

Sorry if I sound harsh, but you have touched a nerve with this kind of food pickiness. And I must state that I have no problem with vegetarians my SWMBO is one, and I cook for her all the time.

You're preaching to the choir there reverend... I won't go out to dinner with them anymore, it's just too much of a PITA and they make so many demands of the kitchen staff I was always afraid my food would get spit in. But, as they have explained to me, it's no different from adhering to a strict Kosher diet when it comes to preperation. And, vegetarian and vegan are definitely not the same.

At least kosher has a religious meaning behind it. What does that have, the "I want to be special by being a PITA" effect?
If there is a vegan out there that can explain this to me/us please do. I really do want to know if there is a logical reason for it. “I just don’t want it to touch my stuff” doesn’t cut it.

Normally I'm the last person to defend vegans, but since the ones in question are very good friends of mine I guess I'll pass along the info I have.

Most vegans are this way due to moral objections to animals being harmed in any way, shape, or form. To them it might as well be religious. An analogy that my friends used was "Using the same knife that just cut up meat to cut our vegetables is no different to us than having our food prepared with a murder weapon."

Now, I'm going to cook up a nice rare steak...

Wait?? If vegans are pita's then that's meat because there's meat in vegan.

Yes, but what do they have to say about the screams from the vegetables that are yanked from their homes, thrown on a truck with others, only to be hosed down with cold water before being chopped, sliced, pureed, and dropped in boiling water only to be consumed by omnivores.

That sounds pretty immoral to me.

I've asked them that before and they always say "plants can't feel pain"

Personally, I'm not buying it...

My main reason for giving up meat was the animals' living conditions. Morals aside, its just plain disgusting. I'm eating chicken now though, more out of necessity...

This may sound a bit strange, but hear me out. I put vegans and gay people in the same category. I DON'T CARE!

You can be a vegan or a gay person all you want. I just don't want to hear about it. I'm not likely to understand your logic, I'm not going to buy into your "statement," and/or I'm not willing to provide an audience to your little attention getting scheme. I don't go around preaching about my hetero-ism or my omnivorous diet, so why should I listen to blatherings about your preferences?
