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.
If, for example, making allowances in sports and public bathrooms weren’t already leading to very real problems, according to recent news, transgenders can now exploit animals to satisfy their mental illness. And, yes, I said mental illness!
