Vegans abstain from all animal products in any way, shape or form, aswell as products tested on animals.

Lacto-vegetarian still consumes dairy, but no actual meats.

Ovo-vegetarian still consumes eggs, but no actual meats.

You forgot to add the obligatory "Vegetarians are just vegans with no conviction" comment.

Haha. I know some dude who designed a shirt that says that. I think he used to work for In Defense of Animals. Or maybe it was another organization.

I wouldn't say he's stupid.. he obviously feels very strongly about his beliefs and won't bend for anyone. That's admirable. But personally, I try not to throw a fit over things like that. If a bus has leather seats, I'm not going to stand around for 12 hours waiting to see if the next bus' seats are synthetic.

My boycotting a certain bus or a friend's car does nothing to bring back the animals that already died for that leather and would be highly unlikely to have any impact on the industry or other people's views of the industry. Honestly, I think that people who throw fits about such things do nothing but give vegans a bad name. We're already considered by a good majority of society to be crazy extremists - why do anything to further propagate that belief? If I'm not comfortable with something like transportation, I deal with it and try to find alternatives in the future.

^I agree. Actions must have practical significance. Not riding in a car because the seats are leather does nothing to help animals and only serves to trivialize the cause of animal rights in the eyes of others, as Aymee pointed out.

I would have to agree with you. I orginally became a vegan for health reasons more or less, but over time I've become more active for Animal Rights. It's sometimes very hard to find a balance between standing up for what you believe in and being pathetic. I think it's the same for just about everything.

It's just a matter of logic. Look at the big picture and don't let yourself get caught up in trivial details.

..and I'm not sure what you mean by "and being pathetic"

...don't forget that there are people who're vegetarians for health reasons and don't have a problem with wearing leather or fur etc.
veganism is more then just a food aspect.
