In an earlier I post I mentioned that people follow things to different lengths/degrees. This applies here.
What is the connection between fur and veganism?
There are some who follow a vegan diet but they are fine with wearing animal products and there are those who won't. I see this as the key to determining whether someone is following a vegan diet or a vegan lifestyle. To me, the latter goes beyond diet. It's about embracing veganism in every part of life. It's the full shift, if you like.
Now the thing is; it's not always that clear. There are many people who don't 'choose' to use animal products with the knowledge of the suffering involved. They simply don't know, so you can't really say that they 'choose' to do it and are alright with it. Then there are those who know but don't see it as an issue.
