In my opinion, and from my own experiences and observations, people don’t dislike vegans because we take a stand for our beliefs and avoid animal products. Rather, the grievances I most often encounter are that vegans come across as sanctimonious, self-righteous, and even downright vicious and insane. Or, at the very least, whiny and insufferable.
Carnivores postulate about a so-called “vegan agenda”, while, seemingly, making it their mission in life, or at least here on the interwebs, to obsesses and pour vitriol over our community. All in attempts to destroy the movement.
