See, here's the thing...
We need every one one of us.
Each of us doing our thing, the way we see best.
We need militant vapers because they make the compromisers more attractive to those that would crush us.
We need compromisers because the militant vapers are never going to get what they want.
We need Democrats and Republicans.
We need mothers and grandfathers and fiends and neighbors.
We need everyone who understands the importance and value of vaping, and what it has meant to us.
I try to stay out of either "side" when these topics come up.
Because I believe in attacking from all angles.
Both sides have a point to make.
If we can all work together, then none of us are left behind.
How's that for a steaming load of kumbaya?
They may make for some Great Debates on an Electronic Cigarette Form. And Lots of People Love to come and see Someone Call Someone Else an ANTZ.
But in the Real World, the World where e-Cigarette Policies are Made, they do Nothing but Hinder those who are Trying to Get some Amount of Compromise in e-Cigarette Use.
What we need is common sense among people and an interest in creating laws based on truth.
The former may be a pipe dream, but with a dedicated effort by as many people as possible, we can accomplish the latter.
As the father of a youngin', myself. I somewhat understand the OP's problem with vaper-girl.
However, it's always gonna be something. There's always going to be SOME thing people want to ..... about. I had the same problem when I smoked Analogs. The people who would get a whiff, and act like they just contracted Cancer immediately with their nonsense coughing and waving. If they take their air-quality so damn seriously, maybe they should be on top of the research?
For instance: Exposed: Cancer-Causing Toxins Found in Air Fresheners | Care2 Healthy Living
Now, was the OP equally offended by the use fog machines at theaters or concerts? Does he complain about the air-quality there? I wonder is he has an issue with the use of Air Fresheners in the Doc's office? No. But no doubt SOMEONE will.
If not by Air Fresheners, then maybe: Is Your Mattress Toxic? Hidden Dangers in Your Sleeping Environment - Red and Honey
It's everywhere. Something "bad for us" is EVERYWHERE. Even in our own beds.
I wonder how many people who faux cough or gag when real tobacco smoke, or even when relatively harmless vapor is around, have fireplaces in their home? How many snuggle with their little ones around a cozy fire breathing in it's essence?

Taking it all into consideration, a little vaporized E-Liquid is peanuts.
If a place has said no, and I've found out it is based on ignorance (cause it looks like smoking), then I will or have vaped there. Not routinely, and not cavalierly. I've done it in a way where I'm fairly certain the manager or staff would not see me. And didn't do it (strictly) out of spite, but because I felt like it, and I was very confident that no one would notice given the location (which in reality is most locations).
In the places I've vaped where it is allowed, when I'm in there on my own, I would say people don't even know that I'm vaping, openly. Like Home Depot would be perfect example. I could take about 10 puffs while wandering that wonderful establishment and unless I'm vaping near cash registers, I'm fairly confident nobody will notice it occurring. This being a place that twice has said it is okay. If they suddenly changed policy, I'm not sure why I would stop doing it there as I really don't think they would ever notice it being any different from a vaper like me. Heck, for all I know, everyone that's in a Home Depot is vaping. Unless you see someone doing it, how would you ever know?
