Question #22837

Why do vegans name some of their food after animals, if they are repulsed by the thought of eating meat?

for ex: tofu chicken.

I tried to ask the question "What is a ******** optimist?" and they censored it! We can't even say ******** on this dopey website???

Because a knowledge seeking question doesn't need colorful language, that site allows minors, and allowing it would just encourage people to cuss at each other.

YA is designated aas a PG-13 site and the rules of the owners say certain words can not be used. In addition, when you cuss, you are likely to post a violation of the rules (such as chat or rant) and you will always get fewer answers to questions.

Because it is easier to name something that was designed after the original thing with the same name.

Unless it to entice us meat eaters into going vegan, I'm not sure. But I do know this: I ain't falling for it. I'm not going vegan. I won't even go vegetarian. I'm a carnivore, who's going to eat meat until the day I die. Nothing is going to change that.

I'm not vegan but have no problems understanding their reasoning.

I could ask why omnivores call their meat beef instead of cow and they eat a bacon sandwich instead of pig sandwich. It does not matter what we call our food, we care about animals not names.

I am repulsed by killing but I can play a video game where nobody actually dies and not get upset. Same logic. They are repulsed by eating real meat not by a fake representation of meat.

I was told by a Chinese dude that Tofu is meat
