I agree w/ Wildflower.

Yhea....there are starving ppl in the world...wanna know how to help that? STOP EATING MEAT! Give them back their land that McDeath and co have been using to graze cattle and what not, oh, and all the grain/water that goes into feeding cattle too.

Wow, some ppl are strange.

As a kid, I was told stories about how people were starving in India, but there were cows everywhere and that people were starving because they would not eat them.

I always get comments like "what about that carrot? It didn't like being pulled out of the ground!" or "what do you mean you don't eat turkey on thanksgiving? (or any other holiday related comment)" But now that it's lent for the Catholic people, it's amusing to watch the Catholic people fuss on Fridays because they had forgotten, or look at my plate and say "oh yeah, i'm not supposed to be eating meat now, am i?"

I was talking to someone last week, and somehow it got brought up that I don't eat meat. After I said I don't eat meat, he said, "Really? So like... do you eat fish?" I said no. He said, "Oh, so you must be one of those... what are they called... vegans?" (Which, I am vegan, but it's a little more than not eating fish, silly!)



I guess people get the idea that vegan is a step beyond vegetarianism. But when you don't even know the definition of vegetarian... geez.

So even though I'm Lacto-Ovo, not vegan, this amused me.



Non veg kid drinking soy milk (I know! ): Mmm. . .I love my chocolate soymilk.



Me: Oh wow that's great.



Two other girls (to kid drinking soy): You and your soymilk. That's so disgusting. You know I saw on the food network how that stuff is made. . .it's like made from soy beans. .. isn't that gross?



Me: Yeah, thank god sucking the lactation from the udder of a cow that's been filled with hormones is so much more appetizing.

My older brother came in the other day and picked up a packet of liquorice all sorts, he ate one going "mmm" put another one in his mouth and started to chew, he then noticed the packet was on my table and stopped chewing as if suddenly realising something, "These aren't some of your vegan rubbish sweets, are they?" he asked, I nodded and he spat the rest out in the bin going "yuck"

Yeah, because licorice that isn't flavored with bacon is just disgusting.

If there's only toxic plants and wild boars...what are the boars eating?







I hate the "If the situation was reversed . . ." crap. People do that to me all the time "If cows were carnivores, they'd eat you!!" yeah, and if your aunt had balls she'd be your freakin' uncle...what's your point?

*Grumbles* I absolutely hate it when people do that! I don't understand why they don't see how retarded it makes them look when they go from enjoying something one minute, even smacking their lips appreciatively, to spitting something out with disdain the next minute. My siblings do this as well, most recently with a pizza I had delivered. Papa John's sauce and dogh are vegan, so I order one once in a while topped with pineapple, mushrooms, and black olives. My little bro came in and grabbed a few slices, swallowed them down quick as can be (he is an 18 year old boy after all) and then asked where the pizza was from. I replied, "Oh, it's just a vegan pizza I ordered from Papa John's." His face went white, and he said something along the lines of "Oh my God, ick, I can't believe I just ate something vegan, I think I'm going to throw up!" It wasn't like he was joking though; he was seriously distressed that he had eaten something vegan, as if there is some secret deadly vegan ingredient that we add to make it poisonous to omnis. *Sighs*

I had someone online tell me he seriously believed that animal do not feel ANY pain or think AT ALL. He literally believe that they are objects that move around chemically and that's it. I told him I was amazed that there were still people like him around and asked if he still believes the Earth is flat too, lol.

As a black licorice fanatic I can tell you that sadly, many brands have geletin, honey or beeswax in them.



I got this comment AGAIN yesterday (and have probably ranted about it in past threads...) "How can you be vegetarian? I thought all vegetarians were SKINNY?"

Wow. I've actually heard that before. Someone came up to me and asked me if I was vegan. When I said yes, they said, "Oh well you better stop taking insulin!" I was like, "Uh.. ok." I'm not even diabetic!!!

I've been eating Darrell Lea's Soft Eating Liquorice. I don't know if you can get it where you are, but it's gelatin free. Comes in mango (yum!), strawberry, and original black.

I love the "You're going to end up in the hospital" lecture.



Or "This is just a phase, you'll grow out of it". When my dad told me that, I replied, "Yeah, that's what you said about vegetarianism".

"Are you still a vegan?" -- I just *love* the assumptions inherent in this phrase.

a few weeks ago I was at a friends birthday party, the girl was turning 16 and had a beautiful cake made. Just as I'm about to put a bite into my mouth the girls mother comes over to me and sits down(this woman has never liked me). I gave her a little nod and swolowed my bite. About three seconds later I look over at her and I could see the wheels turning inside her head.

She says: "you know" *pause* "I'll bet your really glad that cake isn't made of meat."

Me: *half laughing half* "yeah well most people, vegetarian or not like their cake better without the taste of dead animal in it, so I'll be willing to bet that you like it a lot better without dead animal in it also."

Her: "uh....well.....uh....I guess that's true"

In my experience, quite a lot. It's probably the one thing that many non-veg*ns are weary of when they offer me food.
