    I’m starting as a vegetarian and then progressing to vegan. But since I live in a small town full of animal farmers in Alberta, known for Alberta beef, things have started off rocky. In the first two weeks I have been called “crazy” and “Retarded.” But how have I responded to this? By buying a “I am not a nugget” shirt 😀 I am not afraid to stand up for what I want and will be taking photos around France and Spain on my trip in April.
    I live in a province known for producing meat, and will quite often be wearing my new shirt. Anyone else have a bad time?

    I know for a fact when I go to school and everyone finds out there are going to be stupid comments. Hey, it’s my last year at this school what do I have to worry about? Of course I won’t do anything to be suspended or anything but they can’t stop me from expressing my values. It’s weird how people get do worried, when it’s a healthy choice :/

    What a great idea !! 😀 Glad you not afraid to stand up for animals ! I myself had a similar experience, I come from a very small town which started out with no vegetarians (never mind even mentioning vegans ! lol) I had lots of parents of my friends coming up to me and expressing their concern for me when I finally became a full vegan. Many people though I had an eating disorder becasue they thought I was being to ‘drastic’ (no such thing!) :S It was very frustrating, but they learned to accept it ! Give it time, I’m sure they’ll back off, or maybe even go veg themselves 😉

    Awesome!
    I live in a similar area.
    I only do AR work online though, so I haven’t had to deal with comments from the heartless brain-dead a-holes who live near me.
    Keep up the good work :)
