A) do you eat honey?

B) would you eat eggs and dairy if they were from a completely cruelty free source, such as your own pet chicken?

A) No.

B) I would eat eggs from a cruelty free source and probably cheese too, never liked milk plus there are better/healthier vegan versions.

Veganism is about morality, the diet is just a part of it.

Not necessarily, for some people it is nothing to do with morality.

Some people call themselves vegetarians and still eat fish. Veganism is about avoiding anything that has to do with animal exploitation, the term has been *******ized because most people do it for trendy and/or health reasons. People call themselves vegan when they only apply the concept to their diet (and even that is half-assed most of the time) because it's the ''it'' thing right now. That and most people don't understand the concept in the first place.

It's like some middle class american housewife who calls herself a buddhist while following or understanding maybe 10% of the religion.

It isn't a difficult concept. The term was initially coined to refer to "non-dairy vegetarianism" and, if you want to get picky, was then *******ised to refer to people whose moral viewpoints must form a part of their veganism.

I feel completely comfortable using the word "vegan" to describe anyone who follows that diet, regardless or their ethical opinions.

A) I do not eat honey

B) I would with eggs, knowing the chickens would live long and happy lives but not for other animal products as they do not just occur without human intervention as chickens are going to lay eggs regardless

Would you guys eat synthetic lab meat?
The vegan society defines "vegan" as
Veganism is a way of living which seeks to exclude, as far as is possible and practicable, all forms of exploitation of, and cruelty to, animals for food, clothing or any other purpose.
So technically it is vegan

Thanks for that info, I had no idea. I've been a vegan for 15 years and when I started I didn't even know there was a name for it (2001 eastern europe wasn't exactly the place to be if you were an ''alternative''). I guess you do learn something new everyday.

Since there is no animal exploitation involved, it wouldn't be a moral issue (though it could still ''feel wrong'' for many). Being vegan is about the heart of the law, not the letter. You could eat roadkill and cal yourself vegan for all I care (even though i would find it groce/10).

I do not eat honey, and no I wouldn't eat eggs or dairy even if they had come from a cruelty free source because even though its cruelty free which is great it still would gross me out

bees are (depending on your viewpoint) exploited in the process of making honey, so it's on the fence for some.

No - dairy is pretty bad health wise so wouldn't want to consume it in those grounds

a - if it was the last sweetener on earth but maple syrup and golden syrup is so much better!

b - I have my own chickens but I eat their periods extremely rarely. No chance i'll drink cows milk though, it's not good for you, contains pus and yuck and it's not natural for us

Not vegan personally, but..

I've found that more "normal" snacks are vegan than you realise.
Pretty sure those cookies are (which I personally love!) , most crisps, oreos. There's a whole list of other supermarket foods here;

As for the actual question, if I was vegan I would not eat honey but possibly eggs if I looked after my own chickens and knew 100% they were well looked after and die from natural causes (i.e. not slaughter - and I would not eat other types of dairy)

They're allowed an "off" day once in a while
