I don’t really have a problem with people who question vegetarianism and veganism. We live in a world of choice and I’m lucky to live in a day and age where I can choose what I eat and what I don’t eat. It’s simple, really – you eat your food and I’ll eat mine. But it’s amazing how worked up people get over the vegetarian/vegan at the party. The conversation usually starts with questions like “so what do you eat?” and “aren’t you hungry?” And I don’t mind those questions because it’s just harmless curiosity.
What I do mind are the folks who flat out attack me over my choices, and say things like “God put animals on this Earth for a reason” and “You’re probably anemic.” (Oh yeah, it’s happened to me more than once!) They sound just as bad as the opinionated parents who call me selfish for not wanting to have children. (This has happened too lol. Am I going to the wrong parties?) Anyway. I won’t get into a tirade over it. It’s totally ok to be curious about another person’s lifestyle, but stick to the appropriate questions and don’t judge!
How was everyone’s long weekend? I am sporting the weirdest tan.
