People hate vegans because they are different, new, not normal. Because people hear stories about how a vegan was rude to someone and then label all vegans as rude and cruel to those who are not. They hate vegans because of rumors, because they are trying to make changes, and people fear change. However, vegans are just people. And they should not be defined by what they eat. They are still human. We are all human. People with vegan or vegetarian diets are the same as people who are omnivores. It is just a lifestyle choice. And they should be accepted and respected just as much as everyone else. Everyone wants to change the world in some way and be healthy as well, and those with vegan diets are trying to help the planet in their own way, while it may not be the same as switching to metal straws and going to the gym every day, they are doing so by helping reduce the amount of animals suffering and eating food that is less processed. So please treat them the same way you want to be.
