Rude or Polite: Another Thanksgiving Family Debate.

It is rather rude in my opinion. especially since a lot of people can get turned off by the whole "vegetarian"/"vegan" label because some may feel you are trying to sound better than someone who eats meat--which can happen from time to time unfortunatley. and in the context you mentioned above its kind of impolite to correct someone like that. like jeri l. mentioned it sounds hostile in public...if i was an "innocent" bystander i would feel awkward im sure.
