I'm not sure what they're problem is.

People take any criticism of their consumption and the consequences of that consumption more seriously and personally than they should. And the more vile ones will pretend to take up causes that they don't believe in or even oppose.

"There are plenty of reasons for why we should, at the very least, reduce our meat consumption, first-"

"You want us all to go vegan?! How dare you?! Don't you know indigenous people and the poor need that meat to survive?!"

"You're not indigenous, though. Or poor. You're a US suburbanite."
