Top Ten Misconceptions About Vegans

The Top Ten

1 We are all PETA fans

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

2 There are various definitions of "vegan"

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

3 We want "lite" food
4 You will lose weight by turning vegan

I eat A LOT of meat and I can still manage my weight!

I eat a lot of chicken and I'm boney. - AlphaQ

Same -Oof

5 We save a lot of money by eating vegan
6 You will always be healthier as a vegan

Not quite. - BorisRule

Cocaine is vegan and it's unhealthy.
Sushi is non-vegan and it's super healthy. - AlphaQ

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.

...oreos are vegan

7 We are weed-eaters

I'm not a weed-eater.

I'm a weed SMOKER.
(calm down it was a joke) - RoseWeasley

But weed is good lol - AlphaQ

This is dumb. I'm no vegan, but this is so stupid!

8 We can read the label and determine whether a product is vegan
9 We cannot engage in oral sex
10 We are all environmentalists

The Contenders

11 Being a vegan makes you a saint

it does!

Seriously? To become a saint, you need to perform 3 miracles and the Catholic Church has to give you the title. - ethanmeinster

12 Being a vegan makes you smart and wise

Whoever said they have more logic in their pinkie than every vegan out there is an idiot. I’m a vegetarian (not vegan but still animal right ps activist) and I’m smart

I have better logic in my pinkie than every vegan out there. - LordDovahkiin

I'm no vegan, and I'm smart.

13 We don’t get enough protein

My grandma is vegan and she gets her protein from tofu

14 We are hippies

The stereotypical vegans dress like hippies but don't think tats the case. - AlphaQ

15 We are stoners
16 We speak like a surfer
17 We are soft-hearted

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!

18 We are all militant activists

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. (Check out various YouTube videos by Ed Earthling.) - Vegan_Todd
