: : Most of the people who don't eat at McDonalds because they believe in animal rights are hypocrites, because those same people shop for thier fruit and vegetables at supermarkets and stores where meat is sold. What difference does it make if your dollars are supporting McDonalds or the local store if they are both contributing to the death of cows? So why don't you never shop at any store again and grow ALL of your food at home? Then you wouldn't be so hypocritical

: There are Fruit AND VEGETABLE ONLY markets. Why would they have to shop at a market that sells meat? You are makeing assumptions, and calling people hypocrites because of an assumption you made is un-logical.

If you'll look at my post you will see that I said most people, certainly not all. Yes, I know that there are markets that sell only fruit and vegetables. I love going out to eastern Long Island and buying fresh fruits and veggies from farmstands grown on local farms. My point is that most, if not half, people who are vegetarians do shop at stores where animal products are sold. The fruit and veggie only markets are somewhat uncommon, so maybe that's why, I don't know.
