That's rich. There are people here asking if oral sex is vegan, and I'm the one with the teenage mentality.
I'm not claiming to be enlightened, avant-garde, or anything else. Vegetarianism does not confer saintliness. I'm not even one of them! I just think people deserve to be called on it when they say stupid things or make illogical arguments (see, e.g., "If I had my way IRL, all vegetarians and vegans would be shot;" "vegan parents are negligent")
I'm not the only one to have noticed the irrational response vegetarians and vegans get - some here have said the same thing, others here have demonstrated
it, and I know people that get the same stupid flack every single day (the bingo board didn't come from thin air). I'm not imagining it, just offering an explanation.
