30. Well

I think vegans who post about suffering of animals do get trashed. I experience that whenever I post on that subject in General Discussion. People will jump on the thread and make jokes about the yummy pig they are going to have that night. They don't debate that the pig suffers during it's life or when it is killed, they just make a joke about it. So I consider that trashing.

If someone just mentions they are a vegan, without saying anything further about it, no one cares about that.

I have read Greta has convinced her parents to be vegan, maybe only related to climate change, but maybe also because she believes animals suffer before they go to the slaughterhouse and while at the slaughterhouse.

And Greta's "how dare you" speech, she implies that contributing to climate change by not doing everything possible is wrong, or irresponsible, which includes that you shouldn't eat beef.
