Why do all "vegans" spend a huge amount of time searching for micrograms
of animal bits to get out of their diet, and no time whatever trying to
determine what the lowest-harm fruits and vegetables are?


Not all vegans do that.


*ALL* "vegans" do it. *Stop bullshitting.


*NO* "vegan" tries to find the least-harm fruit and vegetable produce;
*all* engage in a continual, silly, absurd effort to get micrograms of
animal parts out of their diets and "lifestyles".


How did you come by evidence for this


"vegans" present it to me.


You think you can come to some kind of valid conclusion about "all
vegans" on the basis of the vegans you have met on usenet?


Certainly. *"veganism" is obviously a monolithic religious belief held
to by a very small number of adherents. *Those who post here are
perfectly representative.


Veganism is not a belief. It is a practice. There is no "monolithic
belief system" held by those who practice it. Different people who
practice it hold different beliefs.

Why would any rational person take such absurd satisfaction in learning
about the minute part of an anchovy that's in a bottle of Worcestershire
sauce and thus stop buying one bottle a year, versus finding some grain
to substitute for a known lethal product like rice?


No rational person who was aware of the harm associated with rice
would do that, obviously.


Most "vegans" eat rice. *http://tinyurl.com/cx9fedr


You're ****ed.


I don't really see why that would be.


Yes, you do.
