    Where do you draw teh line? I mean do you use antibiotics, Lysol etc? Do you kill spiders around the house and such? Kill fleas/ticks on your pets?

    p.s. I'm high as shit and just washed my hands, which BLEW MY MIND

    ticks are animals? I don't have any respect for a parasite!

    Not a vegan.

    But many draw the line at intentionally harming organisms like bees and putting household pests outside, not killing them, not wearing leather, in the days of film cameras not using film with gelatin in it, etc.

    Most don't worry about the animal products that go into producing car tires, book bindings, and other harder to avoid things. It is really difficult to not use any animal products so I think most vegans figure it is ok to do your best while still living a pretty normal life.

    Jains are an interesting case - they try not to even consume microbes that are in their water if it is from a well - they filter the water, then rinse it. No root veggies either so they don't harm small creatures in the soil.

    Vegans are like religious people. They try to convert you then try to make you feel like shit because you don't have the same beliefs as them.
    Of course there is a small percentage of cool hippie vegans. Who don't care or judge what you eat.

    Good point, TS. I always thought about those who believe in reincarnation and don't want to kill any living organisms (e.g. they walk carefully as to not step on any insects). What if they get infections and need antibiotics?

    i am a vegan myself and i know this other guy who is too. We both happen to feel the same way about other people's lifestyles which is: just do whatever feels right for you, and I won't bother you, if you don't bother me.

    I don't mind to talk about it if people ask me stuff and i'll not judge you for what you do.
    But if you are judgmental and ignorant and i feel impatient or tired that day, then i might be a bit more confronting.

    Anyway, all other people i know arent vegan and I love them just as much

    To get back to the OP, I try to never consume anything animal related....but it happens occasionally when i'm out or abroad and eat something by mistake something I don't like. In that case no big deal, I know for next time.

    I Try to purchase clothes free from animal stuff. I live in china now and purchased some shoes the other day. I was looking for canvas shoes or something. But I noticed it had a small patch which could be leather. Not even sure. I still bought them anyway.

    In my country I also buy clothes from stores which are people friendly as well.....Here I would have no clue how to go about that.

    I don't kill bugs on purpose, not even mosquito's (those were the last ones i stopped killing at 1 point lol)....just feel better that way now.
