One of my Facebook friends posted a recipe recently, and said that she is "about 80%" vegan. Is that even possible? Isn't that like being a little bit pregnant? Has anybody else here run into people who claim to be partially vegan?

one time in a restaurant I overheard a girl saying that she's "sometimes a vegetarian." I thought it was the weirdest statement ever. My mom was with me, and she's an omnivore, and she thought it was bizarre as well.

My husband is an omnivore but when he eats dinner in our house it's vegan. That doesn't make him a "sometimes vegan."

I guess they mean 80% of the ingredients are vegan, 20% are not. But of course, the entire thing is not vegan as a result

A little bit of leaven ruins the whole lump.

I suppose it's either
80% of her food is vegan, 20% is not
or
80% of her day is vegan, 20% is not


Either way, not vegan enough! :D

Hmm, you know, now that I think about it I've definitely seen people say their diet is "90% raw" or "80% raw" or whatever, and I didn't find THAT weird. Yet I find the claim about 80% vegan odd. *shrug*

This thread is making me giggle.

Srsly though Lobster brings up a good point. There's a difference between talking about the per centage of ingredients in your food or diet being raw, plant based, or carbohydrate, and whether not your intention is to live a compassionate life free of animal objectification. You can eat a certain per cent of death-free ingredients. You are either vegan or you're not.

F*ck that! :x

Either you ARE or you ARENT. Being vegan isn't a diet or a way to lose weight, hell its not even revolutionary. If you cling to this term "vegan" as an attribute to yourself, you're doing it for the wrong reasons. Follow the guidelines that your ethics and morals, or your health for that matter, set for you and leave the rhetoric to the -itarians.

Dear sweet baby Jesus, it can't be said enough.

Would have been nice if the woman who was here a few weeks ago proclaiming she was "more vegan than most of us" despite eating meat and eggs would have been able to see this line. Alas, I fear she's moved on to find a new home where people will accept a meat-eating vegan :roll:

Ha, I miss that conversation. I couldn't stop talking about it in real life.

I hear you, lobsteriffic - it was one of the most bizarre claims I've ever heard, and believe me, I've come across no shortage of wacky stuff people have said in the name of "being vegan"! Her statment was one of those things that was so astonishing about how someone could want a label so badly, they don't even care what they're associating with that's completely contradictory to how they live. Definitely the sort of thing that just makes you shake your head and wonder how anyone can be that far off base and still not get it!
