Not really a realistic viewpoint is it tbh? Humans are humans - there's all types of eejits in every walk of life
This from a previous posters comment which I think about covers it ...
I’ve a problem with extremist vegan groups, your average vegan is of no interest to me, they’re just doing their own thing which is what we all have a right to do without abuse or ridicule or anybody trying to take our choices away from us.
The OP explained that they were been baraged on social media - hence the thread. They don't come across as a 'smug blowhard' (sic) by any means imo.
I don't believe the OP was referring to the 'average ' person here tbh and that's the point. Suggesting that any
criticism somehow makes a person 'unbearable' is daft. It also seems to suggest that no matter what - no criticism is permitted else the risk being labelled and accused of being "smug blowhards
" or words to that effect...
