Too Extreme

Statements that make me want to throw a TV out of a hotel room window:
"I think vegetarians are OK, but veganism is really too extreme."

Appart from the annoying notion that any extreme opinion is inherently bad, no matter what it is actually about and the ignorance that the speaker reveals, they are overlooking their own extremism. It may be extreme for some people to deceide not to eat certain thing, but what is actually too extreme is keeping animals in a way that does not even allow them to move one step forward, to reduce their life expectancy by 90 %, to throw them into boiling water while still alive or to breed and feed them in a way that makes them gain more weight than they can carry. It is also too extreme to accept that people will starve because of your luxury... I could go on, but the point is that if you are so oposed to extremism, maybe you should overthink your extreme consumption and the extreme effects it has on the world.
