1) Vegan morality when it comes to the suffering of sentient life cannot be argued against, they are correct in that regard.
I just eat meat because I really don't care about the suffering of animals. I don't need some science motivated excuse to release me of the guilty conscience of eating something that was once alive and felt pain. I just don't feel like it, period.
2) Veganism accomplishes nothing for the environment. A lifetime of veganism cannot offset even a fraction of the damage a single 747 flight causes. It's better for the environment to skip a single 747 flight than it is to spend your entire mortal life without touching meat.
Conversely if you depend on a science motivated excuse to project to yourself some air of environmental importance and of doing good on the world then there's far more efficient means to go about it. Being seriously politically active on imposing laws that undermine and bankrupt the meat industry will do far more for the environment than preachy Facebooktivism, but no one's really that committed, are they?
At the end of the day it's just means of virtue signalling with the (sub?)conscious attempt at social leverage. They, even if they refuse to admit it, merely want to be perceived in a good light. Nothing else.
truktrukSure there's a fair bit of vegans that are annoyingly passionate about their lifestyle and diet but it's hard to argue against what they stand for. I completely agree with why someone would go vegan but I am against people antagonizing everyone that doesn't have the same ethics. It's a bit ironic that some people that shit on vegans are doing the exact same thing the annoying vegans are doing.
Normies gonna normie. In much of the same coin you'll have people praising their meat-eating as some epic pwnage to vegans. Nothing more than social masturbation to validate their position among their group, a classic "us vs them" shitflinging contest that gets tiring the millionth time you witness it.
It's all so very exhausting.
