Ok this is a dedicated thread to products that have minute amounts of animal ingredients or were processed using animal ingredients.
Mahk recently made some interesting points in the What Kind of Contraception Do You Use? thread:How Vegan? Ingredients vs. Activism where they advocate ignoring the modicum of non-vegan ingredients to otherwise make veganism look too difficult. I myself recently got the Vegan Riot Act handed to me when i poked fun at people who strive for vegan sugar.
Natalie's Dad take a critical animal rights view of the whole boycott stance of veganism in his article "Why I gave up veganism, and why you should too"
This comes up time and again and it's contentious issue. My own stance on this has shifted and migrates back n forth all the time.
Let's explore the fine line of what it means to buy a vegan product, examples of such conundrums and how that affects our movement and our goals.
