Okay, so as everyone knows, we vegans are pretty much better than, well, just about everyone. What is it that makes us this way?

I don't think "we vegans" are better than anyone else. It's pretty immature and rude to judge other people like that, not to mention arrogant.

I'm going to go with "other". I'm not really a fan of that mindset :)

This is a common misconception. I am better than everyone else and I'm vegan but that doesn't mean that every vegan is.

"I'm better" for making my own cholesterol, and not having to use it from any other species, but I'm still not better than anyone else.
Oh yeah, and I like to think I'm more intelligent, but it never takes long for that myth to be busted. :(

Totally agree! I'm finding the "holier than thou" train of thought so incredibly selfrighteous and if anything seriously damaging the possibility of engaging non-vegans into thinking about a vegan lifestyle. Why on earth would you want to give some arrogant, selfrighteous vegan's beliefs any more thoughts? I sure as hell don't listen to anyone who is that full of themselves!

I've found some vegan "friends" turning their backs on me and some non-vegan friends being there for me when I really needed them, and I'll never forget that. Being vegan is an important part of me, but there is a helluvalot more to people than their personal beliefs.

Holier than thou vegans piss me off and make me ashamed to call myself a "vegan". I still don't. I still tell people I'm a vegetarian.

I saw earthlings last night and i don't think vegans being better than omni's is the right way to put it.The assholes in that video don't deserve to live.It would be justice if they were annihilated.

I don't tell people i'm vegan or vegetarian, i tell them i don't eat animals or animal products because i believe that a special term for my lifestyle is unnecessary because it's what should be normal, the standard, and is.
