Well, first, bees make honey for themselves, just as cows make milk for their calves and chickens, when they lay unfertilized eggs, like to eat them themselves.
If you took your tastes out of the equation and thought simply of the cruelty involved in these industries and of the fact that animals want to live just as much as you want to live, you'd have no problem abstaining from these items. It would then be so easy to rid yourself of the leather, the silk, the wool--all inherently cruel industries.

I would simply say that you eat a nearly vegan diet.
Hi Jim, I feel most comfortable with the term "plant-sourced" since I'd rather people ask me what it means rather than recoil from me thinking I'll attack their tastes/values/comfortable existence. I use "vegan" in restaurants because the server doesn't have the time or inclination to ask me about my lifestyle. I like "veg*n vagabond" though! Mind if I borrow it?
I don't nitpick over whether someone is truly vegan or not. Some people change their lives completely immediately and others pace themselves. Most get to the same place in the end.
I have to thank all of you, again, for all of your support and feedback. Since posting this, I have been 100% vegan with my diet. I don't think I have been even slightly tempted. :)
