"You seem to be angry at us for something but we're all basically in agreement here."

Where did I say I was angry with members of this forum?

What are we suppose to be in agreement with?

Opposing the mis-treatment of another human being

or making sure the milk we drink contains no fat?

I'm just trying to understand what you mean.

Likewise. You say "I'm just upset that we ignore the life and well-being of a young human being and get all in a twit and make this into some assault on people who choose to be vegan" and I'm wondering who "we" refers to. I don't see that anyone here is making this story into an assault on people who choose to be vegan. When you said earlier "Do you care about that" I was also wondering if you meant us in this thread. I meant that we are all in agreement that this is a sad story but that you seemed to want something more from us--stronger outrage at the parents or bad vegans or something, I don't know what. Perhaps I've just misunderstood.

It's disingenuous in the extreme to equate "veganism" with this kind of pathologically superstitious nonsense.
Agreed. This isn't about veganism; this is about people who are too bloody stupid and incompetent to be parents!

I'm just glad the child is okay now, and with more sensible relatives.
