One who has no grasp on the ecological concept of the food chain;

A person who doen't understand that if humans were not the dominant species on the planet, animals would be eating us;

Someone who has no respect for the eating traditions and culture of others
When I saw those Vegans protesting at the World Cup in Korea, apparently because they eat dog meat in that country, it made me want to kick every Vegan in the teeth. By locking themselves in cages, they not only looked ridiculous, but they also happen to be oblivious to the fact that Koreans have been eating dog meat for over 2,000 years.

Comment submitted with request to Delete: "Humans believing they are the dominant species on the planet is just plain arrogance. "Kevin" apparently doesn't realize that every animal raised for consumption doesn't die willingly, each and every one of them are murdered in cruel & extremely painful ways. He should also know that humans have a fruit & grass eaters characteristic body type and weren't designed to handle meat very well, ex: meat-related cancer humans develop & the negative effects of cholesterol on the human body.
"One who has no grasp on the ecological concept of a food chain..." The whole ecological concept must have something to do with this world's hunger problem: "80-90% of all grain grown in America is used to feed meat animals. A Harvard nutritionist, Jean Mayer, estimates that reducing meat production by just 10% would release enough grain to feed 60 million people." (What's Wrong With Eating Meat? V. Parham, PCAP Publications Cornona, NY) Vegans are caring individuals who have made countless sacrifices to help end the pain, exploitation, & murdering of animals on this planet, and have to "face the facts" to fully understand how humans and animals naturally exist together & the negative effects on humans & the planet when they don't. This "definition" is extremely offensive, hateful, & drastically inaccurate, & I request a deletion as soon as possible. Thank you."

People who refrain from eating any animal products (or anything derived from animal products) or using animal products such as leather, silk, or wool. It is a more strict form of vegetarianism. People who are vegan are often passionate about their veganism.
The American Dietetic Association continues to assert that a vegan diet is a healthy diet.

Somebody who abstains from consuming products derived from the exploitation of animal life.
When asked why she was vegan and abstained from drinking milk, Mary explained that cows are severely confined, artificially inseminated and shot up with numerous hormones in order to produce milk on commercial dairy farms - something she wished not to contribute to.

Veganism is a diet that obstains from any animal products (meat) or bi-products (i.e. eggs, milk, wool, leather, etc).

Most people will assume that because you follow a vegan lifestyle, you must be a pretentious jerk (or in a cult). This is NOT always the case (although you do have your exceptions that give the rest of us a bad name).

Being vegan doesn't mean you have to be a part of any organization (i.e. PETA) or chain yourself up and protest. It just means that you choose to follow a 100% herbivore diet for whatever reason. Choosing to be vegan for diet purposes or animal rights purposes doesn't matter, as long as you're doing it because YOU want to.

If you do it correctly you DO NOT GET SICK and you DO NOT NEED SUPPLIMENTS in order to be healthy and happy. :-.)
*At a "mixed" bbq party* (Who would have thought vegans dine with meat-eaters? Yes, it's true, we do! OMG!)

John: Would you like to try some teriyaki steak tips?

Jane: No, thanks, I'm vegan. I would love it if you could pass me the tofu fritters though.

John: No, problem. *passes fritters*

Someone who abstains from the use of animal products, hides or meat.
Joe - Try on these leather shoes.

Vegan - No thanks man. I'm a vegan.I don't believe in the killing of animals for the use of their hide, or any other purpose.

A person who out of respect or compassion for animals, the environment, creation, or their own self, has chosen to eliminate animal products including, but not limited to, meat, dairy, eggs, honey, leather and wool from their lives. Often reviled by society, they are a committed group, who put ethics and love before the dictates of their taste buds or tradition. Vegans often cross-identify as radicals, pacifists, hippies and new age spiritiualists.
Moby is a vegan; Leonardo da Vinci was a vegetarian.

1: someone who abstains not only from eating meat, but also milk, eggs, and anything else derived from animals.
Note: Not to be confused with a Nazivegan, who follows a vegan diet but flaunts one's veganhood over everyone else as if it is somehow morally superior. Kinda like saying that a gazelle is morally superior to a lion because the lion is a carnivore, you know? They're not better than each other; just different.
'I made sure I had veggie patties and vegetable shishkabobs on hand at my barbecue because some of the people I invited are vegans.'
