    I was a vegetarian for 25+ years, and for the life of me could not figure out what made vegans think of themselves as “so morally superior” (that was my perception at least. Hey! I wasn’t killing anyone (much).

    And then I found out that there is so much more cruelty in the dairy and egg industries that I probably should have done animals a favor and started eating steaks instead of eggs and dairy. It would have been a less cruel choice.

    Bridging that disconnect took me over 25 years though. Once it was bridged, I guess I became one of those “morally superior” vegans….except that its not about being morally superior. Its about trying to get the truth of what people are contributing to out there. But because it approaches subjects that the people who still want to enjoy those foods don’t want to hear about, it gets labeled in certain ways.

    Sorry, but there is just as much death (of not more) caused by eating dairy and eggs than by eating meat. And a LOT more cruelty. You create veal with every glass of milk (as did I for a very long time). At what point are people supposed to pretend that is the same as consciously doing no harm? Its not the same at all.
