i usually refer to “evangelical moral vegans/veganism” to differentiate them from normal people. :D the evangelical part is sorta the key descriptor.
I agree… I even coined the term “vegangelical” for this purpose. But the first time I made a post about evangelical vegans—and made the point that it’s a small but highly visible subset of all vegans—I got an evangelical vegan yelling at me that I was inventing a false category that didn’t exist in order to bad-talk all vegans while pretending I wasn’t. :P
