.... You carry a leather purse and wear Ugg boots?
This is why I ask. Today I was waiting in line at a local artisan bakery that also serves lunches and things. As I'm waiting to order, the two women ahead of me are talking about what they are going to order. One of the daily options was a roast beef sandwich. One of the women loudly says, "I would never eat meat, ever! I love animals way to much." Her friend agreed with her. As they walked away, I noticed both women were wearing Ugg boots and one of the women was carrying a giant leather bag. I silently chuckled to myself and felt bad for the kid behind the counter.

Lol I don't think so, but I could be wrong. I went to school with a couple girls like that. They would preach about not eating meat and then have leather shoes, purses, eat fish lol eh to each his own.

Are you sure it was real leather? If so, though, that IS very hypocritical.

I thought they sounded a bit hypocritical, they love animals enough to wear them but not eat.

Vegetarian maybe. Vegan no.
I'm vegetarian and have neither. Generally vegans are stricter about that kind of stuff though.

They could be vegetarian, just not vegan. There are different levels of vegetarianism. Still hypocritcal, however. I wear fake uggs, though. I have fake leather stuff too. I'm not a vegetarian anymore, but I don't eat much meat.
