To be fair, this isn't limited to vegans. Entirely too many people, omnivorous or otherwise, will blithely ignore the horrific sufferings of innocent people, but will completely lose their shit over a dog being mistreated in any way. And I understand. I have a dog and two cats I love to pieces and generally just love animals in general. But people matter too and we should help both.

I was talking to my ethical vegan friend about perfectionism yesterday and will continue to do so. I never liked the taste of meat and stopped eating it as a child so it's easy to forget how much more difficult it is for most people and that my time is better spent supporting newbies than getting upset over things I don't have the power to singlehandedly change right now.

kore, good luck to your friend. Getting rid of a cocaine habit is a hard battle that took my own friend years to win, but it can be done.

i was talking to someone about vegans he knew that had cocaine habits and how the human rights aspect of coke didn't really line up with vegan beliefs.
