When someone asks you a question about being vegan, and a non-vegan answers for you:

Anonymous said: Is it so difficult to just be respectful of people with differing opinions than yours? Yeah, carnists have shitty opinions but it doesn't give you the right to be mean.
But carnists’ opinions give them the right to exploit, abuse and murder living, breathing, feeling animals? Are you on glue?
Anonymous said: Hello, I've been a pescatarian (wild only) since the beginning of this year, & I've been having issues gaining the respect of my father (an influential commercial fisherman in Alaska & avid hunter) and pretty much everyone else I know. I am working to eliminate dairy and leather goods, and get closer to a vegan lifestyle (or as close as possible) but my father would disown me if I ever stopped eating fish. Do you have any advice on how to gain respect for my choices, living in such a situation?
Your father sounds like a dickhead. If he honestly doesn’t love you because you’re trying to do as little harm to the planet and animals as possible, then he’s probably not a very good person. Regardless, I know how important it is to maintain family relationships, so hopefully this can help you out:
Anonymous said: This may seem like a stupid question to ask, but what is your opinion on hunting? I mean, the vegan argument is that animals should not be consumed or used due to the torture they are put through in slaughterhouses & such. However, in the wild that deer has as much a chance of being eaten by a bear as by a hunter. I don't agree w/ hunting for fun & don't eat factory animals, but isn't hunting with the goal of using the animal to support oneself different from eating a pig from a slaughterhouse?
When somebody has an alternative to taking a life for food, they should do it. If you can survive without killing animals you should do it.
