Hi I'm Jen.



I joined this site in the hopes of digging up some veggie resources and meeting other veggies. (being as I live in a section of the country where I'm treated like I'm in some kind of strange cult, not just because of theveg thing though )



This looks like a great place!



I look forward to getting to know some of you!



Sincerely,

Jen

Hi Jen, welcome to the boards!



I'm interested in what makes others think you're in a cult.

where i live...



is in the south...

in the country...



where everything is meat and potatoes.



and while I realize that I live in a small town...I only know 2 other veggies...one is my dr. and the other is his wife. He has been a great support for me. However, when I tell people that I am a veg...they look at me like I'm from mars..and then start asking the usual questions "not even fish?". The idea that I do not consume animal flesh is absured to them...then they start assuming automatically that I am a snob and that I think I am better than them....it's crazy...people get really deffensive...and all I haveto say is "I don't eat meat".



top this off with the fact that I homeschool my eldest child...I don't listen to country music (though I do appreciate it)...I know what monty python is, and I freak out if I get a low A on a test....and any number of other things...well...peeps just think I'm weird.

Hi Jen! Welcome to VB!



I think you'll fit in just fine here. Especially because of the Monty Python thing...
