I hear this term "soyboy" a lot on the internet. It seems to come from the right. And the meaning often presents a vegan as one who is weak, frail, hard-left, and lacking nutrients. Yet, there is vegan body builders, 20+ year old vegans living very healthy lives and professional vegan sport players.
(2010) A global shift towards a vegan diet is vital to save the world from hunger, fuel poverty and the worst impacts of climate change, a UN report said today.
As the global population surges towards a predicted 9.1 billion people by 2050, western tastes for diets rich in meat and dairy products are unsustainable, says the report from United Nations Environment Programme’s (UNEP) international panel of sustainable resource management.
[...] And if you think it’s just those liberal Europeans who are planning to restrict the consumption of beef, think again, says Patrick Wood, a U.S. economist and expert on global governance who authored the book “Technocracy Rising: The Trojan Horse of Global Transformation.”
Wood says the attack on meat is global and – like many of the ideas that get made into policies by the White House, Congress and state legislatures – they originate at the United Nations and its agenda for “sustainability.”
[...] Wood said the ranching industry has been declared “unsustainable” by the U.N.’s Global Biodiversity Assessment.
“It’s about 1,200 pages thick and that is the working manual for U.N. Agenda 21, and they tell you in there what is sustainable and what is not sustainable and the list of things that are not sustainable include cattle, dams, roads, golf courses, all kinds of things.”

Also, would you disagree with me saying meat eaters are savage Neanderthals who only operate on urges?
No? Then why did you do the same for vegans? …
Honestly though, im sure there are quite a bit of those super emotional vegans or "meathead" jock jerky eaters. Stereotypes can be fun and shouldn't be taken seriously.
Again, my point was that now things are being more politicized than ever.
I think the main difference is that a lot (not all) vegans seem to have to push on everyone else around them their innate superiority over people who eat normally.
Sure, you can work around it with a vegan diet, but try it on a self-sustaining homestead and you will soon find it economically unfeasible unless you live in a place with no winter season
If the lights went out in America or something else happened there would be no vegans in a few months.
I guess I missed the part where I called a vegan a savage neanderthal who only operates on urges.
