Vegan (alt.food.vegan) This newsgroup exists to share ideas and issues of concern among vegans. We are always happy to share our recipes- perhaps especially with omnivores who are simply curious- or even better, accomodating a vegan guest for a meal!

Default an example of self-righteous vegan attitude

"The neighbours upstairs are fighting. I'm so glad I don't live
like that."

Ah, you got one right. I'm not Karen, but I am aka Skunky.
Now, what's your 'beef' with that post? Would you want
to live with people you fight with? C'mon, no one wants
that.

This is all very off topic, although I do have a veggie
forum there as well.

Why skunky?

Now, what's your 'beef' with that post?


Just the attitude you seem to have, which includes saying stuff about
how virtuous you are about your diet even though you should be more
worried about your diet being "minus one animal death" compared to those
whose diet you claim is "plus one animal death." The fact that you keep
score at all (well, you SHOULD since you're the one making
self-righteous and -congratulatory claims) about that shows that your
diet isn't more ethical than any other.

Would you want
to live with people you fight with? C'mon, no one wants
that.


Not all conflict is bad. Conflicts happen in healthy relationships. Just
never go to bed angry -- stay up and fight.

This is all very off topic, although I do have a veggie
forum there as well.


I think a forum requires more than your own posts to yourself. One thing
is certain, though: you're faring much better against yourself than you
are here.

Why not? I like skunks and the name fits
in well with the 'scented' theme.

To hell with the number of cds game. You're not gonna
believe me that meat is worse, and I'm not gonna
believe you that vegan is.

Would you want
to live with people you fight with? C'mon, no one wants
that.

I enjoy these internet arguments, but that's very
different than conflict in one's own home. Luckily
those close to me don't fight with me. We get
along quite well. It's something I'm very
appreciative about. I've lived in places where
I fought with others and it was very unpleasant.
My personal choice - no fights at home.

I'm not the only one there, just nearly so. I figure it
might eventually have a group that converses a lot
but if not, then you can just call it my blog or something.
I don't think I'm faring badly here.

Close enough so.

Doubtful. Some other chick from Ontario in AAEV (iirc) had a site like
yours, only more political than artsy. It was pretty much defunct last
time I checked. Waste of space.

but if not, then you can just call it my blog or something.


Okay, something.

Self-delusion. ;-)
