On the point of being harassed for one's position on the treatment of nonhumans - I agree that threats are not effective nor are they consistent with a just/nonviolent point of view. That said, I have my own story of my car (that has vegan bumper stickers on it) being trashed/damaged, with me inside. Cans/bottles were thrown at me on the highway along with shouts and slurs of being a "vegan sh*t" and a "f*cking pig lover", etc. So... The stupidity and crassness goes both ways.
Individuals who bully others on either side aren't the majority. Most are open to hearing the opposition as this debate makes evident. Thank you for this and all you continue to do. Your polish on the issues makes the vegan ideal shine brightly. ;)
