Vegetarians can coexist with meat-eaters. A vegan won’t hunt, or eat flesh, and if they go to the same restaurant, there are often options for both. Hunters can still hunt in this country, vegans can still graze; no one is (rightfully) demanding the hunter to put down their rifle and eat tofu. One side might try to influence the opinions of others, but generally, they can co-exist. I’m not a vegan, but I see nothing wrong with it and it even has its benefits.That said, why do people think they have to "embrace" gay marriage it in order to accept it?
