It depends on the motive, obviously.

Veganism is a particular lifestyle/ethical way of looking at the world, which includes a particular diet that involves no animal products whatsoever. They also do not wear leather, wool and try as much as is possible to avoid using animal products. However, since computers, homes built with dry wall, tires for cars, etc., it is not possible to be entirely 100 percent vegan unless abandoning modern society.

Some vegans go into veganism for their concern over animals and there have been some adopting the dietary part of the lifestyle since some view this as being more healthy.

Some vegans are very militant and label all others with nasty names, other vegans follow their choice and do not label other people, that depends on the individual.
Vegans are not all the same, they are diverse and there are sometimes disagreements in the vegan community as in all other communities.

I am omnivore and have some vegan friends, vegetarian and omnivore friends. I know no Breatharians.

I'm not vegan, but very few people are vegan for health reasons. I think it's mostly a lifestyle choice.

Animals don't have to suffer or die for me.

I'm not a vegan but it seems to be more of a lifestyle to me in my opinion.
