Bridog6996: In what journal did you read that study? As a psychologist I can say neither I or any of my colleagues are aware of this "psychological study" you're referring to. Frankii: It`s not the act of milking a cow or harvesting a honey comb vegans and vegetarians take issue with. It is the condition the dairy cows are kept in, and the breeding of specific honey bees that is making the natural honeybee population dwindle. It`s not the animal byproducts (milk and honey) that are looked down upon, it is the way the animals are treated to get that byproduct. And, just as a disclaimer, I`m a meat-eater.

Psychological studies show that vegetarians/vegans/etc are among groups of people that almost always have some type of superiority complex. In our modern society, common "acceptable" ways for this "I'm better than you" behavior to present is with things like religion and food choices. Therefore, it`s no coincidence that people who are vegan are generally pretty annoying about it. It`s a mental thing.

@FoolsPrussia, if the vegan lifestyle is about abstaining from preventable suffering, why do they eat plants? Plants also feel pain, it's been provenPlants feel pain so the vegan argument about preventing suffering is a lie.
