Agree or disagree: Veganism should be the eventual moral baseline for ethical vegetarians?

blahblueblack Asked: Agree or disagree: Veganism should be the eventual moral baseline for ethical vegetarians?

ie vegetarians should be aiming for veganism as a final goal if their reasoning for the diet is ''i do it for the animals/i think its wrong to kill animals'' (or any other variation of animal ethics)

agree or disagree? & why/why not?
PS this is more a poll. I've been reading articles from Gary Francione & want to see if the trends he observes are true here too

I think that it should be a goal. However, each person sets there own timeline for goals. While someone may transition to veganism in a year or two, another person may not be ready for 10, 20 or their entire life time.

I think that many ethical vegetarians would like to transition to a vegan diet, but they are simply not ready. Therefore their eventual goal is veganism, it is just not set when.

I'm not really sure.. But I'm an ethical vegetarian and I'm planning on being a vegan eventually. I don't know if every ethical vegetarian would want to be a vegan though, so I'd have to disagree with what you said up thar. :p Or I'll have to give that some more thought.

Disagree.
People should set their own moral baselines, rather than submit to those set for them by self-righteous vegans.

Eh, both. Many vegetarians do go vegan, not all but quite a lot. Some people just can't live with out their favourite foods though. Like my friend, she wants go vegetarian, but she said she could never go vegan. She'd miss chocolate to much.
