It is more than likely that we all know meat-eaters. What are some of the ignorant things they have said to you about being vegetarian/vegan? How do you respond?
Like for me:
“Where do you get your protein?!?”
ive heard alot of dumb stuff such as
“you cant be healthy without meat, humans were made to eat meat”
“theyre gonna die eventually”
“youre only skinny because you dont eat meat”
oh yeah and cant forget “meat isnt murder!”
At a new friend’s BBQ I asked, “So what are you guys cookin’?”
“Nothing special, just normal people food, you know, burgers, hotdogs, steak.”
“:| I’m vegetarian…”
“OOHHH IM SORRY! I didn’t mean it that way!”
lol She was so embarrassed but it was mainly my fault for not giving them a heads-up. I had corn-on-the-cob that night. :p
guy : Vegans cant drive. me: ?????? guy: becuase it runs on oil! made from dead animals!!!!! me: the animals were dead hundred of thousands of years. the animals are already dead.
him: leather is already dead and so is steak me:using oil does not support any murder or animal abuse. leather and steak kill the animal specifically for that. guy: so.. if there was a dead cow on the side of the road out of natural cuases would you eat it? me: uh ewww? The cow could have disease. besides meat is unhealthy. and how the heck would I transport it, cut, sterilize, season, and cook him???? I would rather just grab an apple at the store.
Oh and this guy has a CRUSH on me yet he is acting like a total jerk idiot!!!!!!
@fallobscenities exactly! Everyone’s a doctor and a nutritionist when you have an illness and a diet that they don’t lol. I actually stopped seeing my doctor, because he said diet doesn’t affect fibromyalgia, but there’s no way I can get all the protein I need on a vegan diet… He then proceeded to tell me he knew very little about fibromyalgia, And prescribed me medication when I specifically told him I didn’t want to try anymore meds (they’ve all made me horribly sick). We know what’s right for our bodies. I have no faith in medical doctors anymore. Always treating the symptoms, never the cause. I notice a HUGE difference when I cut out processed foods. If I could afford to be completely raw vegan, I am like 99% certain all my health issues would dissolve. *shakes head angrily* people are annoying.
“The big name brands like Kosher don’t abuse their animals.” My brother said that and it took me about five minutes to regain my speech. I then went on a rant about everything that goes on in farms run by Kosher to which he shrugged and started talking to my mom.
Oh, I can’t forget when my grandfather told my mom I was being anorexic and that they needed to take me to therapy.
