The world is full of closed minded tools! No scratch that cause tools are helpful and have a purpose! (apologies:I get heated over theses things) I remember being in school and it was dissection week in bio (luckily I was in physics) and a kid took out a fetal pigs eye and stuck it in my hair!! Ewwwww!>-< What's the worst thing to happen to you?
I just get a lot of crap from kids at school about being in vegetarian. Living in western oklahoma, where everyone is either farmers and/or steak lovers, doesn’t help either. I really wish people at my school were more open minded. Also, if they aren’t vegetarian, ok cool, but don’t give me crap for being one. People these days….
I used to get the ignorant rude comments daily from school AND family but having flyers and info helps and you don’t have to say anything back just hand them the info and they will have a shocked expression. Luckily at my new school we have THREE vegetarian teachers 😀 😀 😀
Eeew that’s gross. Tell the teacher! They can’t just do that!
Nothing really…being made fun of for being vegan is something I got used to because people are always going to make fun of me. But I’m still vegan and that’s all that matters.
That’s really rough. I’ve had a few people get on me about it, but ever hardly face to face. People are judging for race, gender, age, etc. and now for what you don’t put on your plate. It’s so absurd the way people act.
I was looked down upon for being “so stupid”. People always pull the “we’re higher up on the food chain. It’s just natural. We need meat to live.” But we’re all living proof that isn’t the truth. The only thing we should be responsible for is controlling the population of animals below us on the food chain. Which can be done in COUNTLESS ways that don’t involve mass-murdering. Another thing they always say is that this is what they’re born to do. Doesn’t that make it that much worse? I just don’t understand people sometimes. I know EXACTLY how you feel. =/
