Well I can only speak anecdotally, but the vegans/vegetarians I know only mention their dietary choices when actually eating or if asked directly. Conversely, they get smart comments on their diet all the time out of context from people who eat meat.

I eat meat myself, but what is it to me if other people don't want to?

"Im not a vegan" + "dog though" argument lol. The old ones are certainly the best . Seriously - the number of times I've seen that on boards is quite hilarious.

Do you eat rat? Why not? What's wrong with rat? Are you speciest?

And yes some people do eat horse and dog and even rat.

Do you eat Cacti and grass? Why not?

Absolutely. Have eaten horse in France. Would eat pretty much anything not endangered (unless of course I was in some dystopian situation, then all bets are off, including human), it's all just fuel at the end of the day.

In Ireland we have a terribly narrow selection of meats we eat. Go on the continent and they eat a wider variety and more of each animal too.
I know horsemeat is commonly eaten in Europe, (I've eaten it myself) but is dog meat? I think Animals that we keep as pets or are domesticated in some way are less likely to be eaten.
I can't argue a moral reason for this it just seems to be the way it is.

I think the problem is with extremist vegan groups who want to take away your choice to eat the meats you want to and force you to eat along the lines of their chosen doctrine.
That’s a serious problem.

Have you ever seen them protesting at a halting site where horses are raced to death regularly. Or at puppy farms where family pets are reared. No they are just anti farming.
That's some serious whataboutery there. No I've definitely never heard of vegan groups protesting over animal cruelty. Wait until you hear about PETA, it will blow your mind!

Farmers (at least the ones on here) seem to be the most precious bunch.

They're hardly representative of all vegans though. It's a vocal minority that gets attention because the press love that sort of stuff. Nothing generates clicks like outrage.

Not around here it isn't. Personally dont give a proverbial what anyone eats tbh. But the number of times I've seen open preaching here against those who choose meat etc as part of their diet is quite amazing tbh. For example there was a thread about a sheep that had been killed by some random psycho and it was quickly hijacked into a pro vegan distribe on how meat was the the equivalent of nuclear waste or whatever...

Well when someone is sprouting bull****e about food production etc - you dont think farmers and others aren't going to point this out...

Yea, a group that kills 80% of the animals that make it to their “shelters”

If you're small, then the phrase eat your greens or you won't grow up is rubbish and the whole vegan thing is just another fad diet.
