“Who even wears fur anymore? I don't know anyone who does or would. Fur anything has been out of fashion for decades now and most of the old furrier stores have long since closed. I'm wondering if it's mostly in Europe?”

“Closely associated with reactance presentations are childish tantrums or sophomoric commentary. This topic can really bring out the spoiled brat in "adults".”

“There is a term in psychology that captures the response of many meat eaters to vegans and vegetarians. Google "reactance psychology" and you'll get a sense of where their heads are at when the mere thought of not being "allowed to have meat" rattles around their skulls.
"Psychological reactance occurs in response to threats to perceived behavioral freedoms."
Once in a while I run across a person who has a deep and serious reactance to vegan and vegetarians. It is a sight to behold.”

Margaret Margaret on May 14, 2013 at 17:20:08

“Thanks for the eloquent explanation, ottabox, about why some people who have such strong negative feelings about other people being vegan. I suspect it's because they know in the back of their mind that it's healthier, better for the environment and of course, saves millions of animals from extreme cruelty. They don't want to accept the facts, so they go on the offensive.”

plantbasedpunk on May 14, 2013 at 11:50:01

“As someone whose spent countless hours volunteering for Vegan Outreach, I can confirm this. People will go so as far as to take time out of their day, approach you, and start yelling at you simply for being vegan. The only thing you can do is say "OK, sir have a great day" and walk away.”

“Thank you ! I gave up meat for health,and ethical purposes. Vanity too! i met some very attractive glowing people who did not eat meat . My health and looks,never better... I was in a grocery store one time,and just quietly as relating to someone( NOT PREACHING) about my healthy diet... An old galoot;USA 1 base ball cap and all'swung around in anger at me. "I EAT IT AND I"M STILL ALIVE". He snorted. "Congratulations ! You don't look it ". I replied to his retreating fume.”

“Another would be annoyance at the air of superiority that "vegans" try to project. I couldn't care less what you eat- just shutup and eat it. When you have to tell me how noble you are and lecture me about what I eat then I want you to go away.”
