    Since i became vegan almost a year ago, my own friends and family have tried to put meat in my mouth and rubbed it in my face LITERALLY. People pester me constantly. I think being hateful towards vegans is just as bad as being hateful towards someone because of how they look. It upsets me SO much. Has anyone else dealt with the same problems?

    @CarolineS it is because people are indoctrinated from birth to believe meat is the right food for humans. The status quo pushes this notion too…

    I have heard people say veg*n children are akin to child abuse. It’s sad that meat eaters don’t realise they too are forcing their views on their children.

    It’s wierd how people ask me about if I’d raise my kids vegetarian/vegan and they are always like well you can’t force them. Yet, I often hear people saying how when thier kids were little they didnt like or want meat so they had to make them eat it or force them -___-
    I just never understand how people can say meat is the right way. If it was natural so many young children wouldn’t need to be forced! -_- It’s just so frustrating. :[

    i’m sorry you have to go through this. My family calmed down but they still criticize or tease me now and then. :J Just stay strong :]

    I’ve only had my uncle put a plate full of lamb in front of me. That’s the nearest to being forced I’ve ever dealt with. Your family sound horrible. Perhaps you should get them to watch Meet your Meat or Earthlings, then maybe they’ll realise why you are vegan.
