I'm sorry if you find some of us vegans so offensive. Trust me; you aren't the only one. I've had experiences where I'm chased out of an establishment as soon as they realise I'm vegan. It's like I'm asking to eat real live babies or something.
But I would like to point out that you're overgeneralising things. I like to eat faux meat; yeah. If it's cooked well. There are hundreds of ways to do so. But not because I crave meat in itself. I actually went against my diet a few times while eating out with the parents; since they're so against my lifestyle. Not once could I say there was a serious improvement in my gastronomic experience; there wasn't a sense of "release" or incredible enjoyment at all. Not only that, I felt this clogged, heavy sensation in my guts afterwards. And popped out a few pimples. ==
I guess meat just doesn't do it for me anymore. (*shrugs)
I almost see your point. They're eating food that's made to look and taste like the food that they object to. Still, it's not the look or taste that they object to (from my understanding anyway). It's the animals pain and suffering. So really it doesn't seem that hypocritical to me.
I'm not a vegetarian BTW. I do buy my grass fed cow milk/butter, my eggs cage-free/local, and my meat humanely raised though. It's terrible how they treat animals, and it's probably terrible for you if you eat them too! Who the heck wants to eat all those hormones and antibiotics? YUCK!
Sometimes eating meat has a lot of health benefits too though.. It depends per person.
I agree with you on the faux meat. There's plenty of other options if you don't want to eat meat. Like mushrooms, vegetarian cheese, eggs, etc. Fake meat is expensive as hell and usually not very tasty imo
I am vegetarian for health reasons and not moral ones (I do feel healthier and it's also a way cheaper lifestyle actually) but rarely eat tofu. I don't like the taste too much. Also most tofu is made out of soy which is bad on big amounts. That being said, there's no reason to hate on people who do eat it because of their morality, it's just food bro.

I don't hate on people who eat based on moral objection, but I do see a problem with morally objecting and consuming a product that propagates the enterprise in which you object to. I think it's fine and dandy that you object to eating meat for health reasons and it would be fine by me if you morally object to it, I just want people to stay true to what they believe not and consume stuff that resembles that which they find immoral. I'm sorry if I offended you.
not really offended, but I do think that it's ok for that people to eat that, it's just that they're against the actual meat because of where it came from whereas tofu is just fabricated without killing animals, which is why they prefer it. So they don't really contradict themselves by eating tofu. Which is what I tried to say.
