NatureBoy sent me this link: http://www.plosone.org/article/info%3Ad ... ne.0096457

Apparently, it's even statistically significantly hilarious but true!
When you poll large groups of veg*ns about their attitudes about others veg*ns, if you're not doing it for the right reason, you're doing it wrong!**


** Slightly more wrong for vegetarians than vegans.

I believe it since my first reaction is "that's because 'health vegans' are always cheating on their diet or becoming paleo!"

Vegans "organize their free time around abstaining from meat"? Am I the only one this silly formulation makes laugh?

I do find the article interesting though (I only read the last part).

I'm pretty sure that's the technical term for PPKing and/or meetups.

I do abstain from meat during my free time. I can't really argue with that.

Me, too. But I also abstain from eating it when I'm at work. So am I the right kind of vegan or the wrong kind?! I AM SO CONFUSED.

Oh, I spend so much time and energy organizing my weekends around abstaining from meat.

So it's not the abstaining from meat (& animal products) that is so hard, it's the organizing of the free time around it. So hard!

You guys, you make me laugh. I haven't even clicked the link but your comments are awesome.
