    Vegans really aren't "extreme, militant hippies" like people think.
    All we are, are compassionate for animals and we want to share that with everyone else and educate them.
    People get far too defensive when it comes to their unethical diet.

    Nobody is saying all vegans are extremists. Some vegans are extremist and they get called out just like any other extremist.

    There's nothing wrong with having an opinion but that doesn't mean you need to share it. It's not that people are defensive about their "unethical diet" if that's what you want to believe in. People are defensive about being called out for something that doesn't matter to them. People are defensive about this bizarre idea that vegans feel the need to educate others, as though it's some superiority complex. In many cases it has nothing to do with who is actually right. It's simply that people are tired of vocal vegan elitism. Your reply is case in point. The thread hadn't had any replies in 5 days. Why bump it up to add nothing new to the conversation? That's arguably more defensive of being vegan then any meat eater has shown here.
