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?!?”
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.
