Top Ten Misconceptions About Vegans
The Top Ten
I'm not a vegan or a vegetarian but even I think this misconception is stupid. Although, I would blame the vegans on instagram and deviantart making blood filled pictures that look like PETA propaganda for this.
I am vegan and I am against PETA for their racism, misogyny, and violence.
I think that if any organisation were to cause harm to animals then those who support animal rights would logically oppose it. - PositronWildhawk
I'm not a vegan but actually a vegetarian (lacto-ovo vegetarian). So my principles are somewhat different. But yeah, the reason why I don't eat meat, fish or wear leather is because I can't see animals slaughtered solely for human use. - Kiteretsunu

I don't really get this one myself. When I tell people I'm vegan they straight away question my protein intake. I have the same reply each time: DON'T ask me about my protein and I won't ask you about your cholesterol.

The stereotypical vegans dress like hippies but don't think tats the case. - AlphaQ
Hell yeah we are soft hearted. If you were dying in front of me I wouldn't even shed a tear! We aren't vegan because we are crying about our pet pigs dying, we just want to stop cruelty to animals!
I would use the adage "You catch more flies with honey than vinegar" but vegans don't eat honey! Yes, there are a few vegan activists who believe in promoting veganism by using an in-your-face, confrontational approach. However, the majority of activists take a more subtle approach where education, rational thinking, and adherence to one's moral compass are used to urge people to consider adopting a vegan lifestyle.
