weirdo vegan chick it doesn't mean you have to question my reasoning every single day... i swear i think i've explained it to my dad and brother 20 thousand times... so either they don't listen or they're just be patronizing. :sigh:

This! Vegan != organic food. I can't tell you how many times I've gotten people saying "Oh he can't eat that, it's not organic!"

Tissigirl I am SO glad to hear that others are not necessarily 100% pro PETA. Some of their views and actions really bother me. Especially since it casts a stereotype of all animal lovers/activists.

It doesn't mean I will judge you for eating meat, but I will threaten to cut you if you are an annoying human. I do love most animals more than most humans after all!!

Diamond It doesn't mean I'll throw a fit or become preachy if you eat meat in front of me.
It doesn't mean that I like Boca burgers.

I Heart Corey Haim!! it doesnt mean I always want everyone else to be like me.....sooo please stop apologizing for what you are and what you eat.

Be Positive

omnisheep that doesn't mean I don't enjoy good food.

I Heart Corey Haim!! I dont love all veggies....I loathe onion and avoid it whenever possible.

Peace

+1

Just because I can't eat anything when I go to a lousy chain restaurant with you & happen to mention that I also dislike tomatoes & condiments does not equal picky eating!

I am sure I will think of more later, but please feel free to complete the phrase as you see fit!

LOVE the salad one, I get that constantly. Also add

obankobi What?! I must have missed it! The only power I have so far is to read labels in 0.01 seconds. I want perfect hair!

And lasers.

It doesn't meant I don't make amazing food!

Croxus I may be vegetarian but...

I won't cry if you eat meat infront of me (but now suggested I might do it for the hell of it)
I won't freak out if I accidentaly eat a bug (more than you would)
I'm not gonna "go all hippie" on you.
I haven't seen the animal torture videos and I'm not gonna force you to see them
09-12-2011 12:21 PM
Diamond It doesn't mean that I've seen those violent, slaughterhouse videos(I became a vegetarian because I simply read about what goes on in those places)

fadeaway1289 That I want to stand outside KFC during a blizzard holding up protest signs with you.
That I want to be harassed by you because I don't feel comfortable participating in such public attention drawing activism.
(I met an activist who assumed I was one also just because I am vegetarian.)

vettechinhippie CindyLennyCleo - You're vegetarian for ethical reasons, though. There are many vegetarians in the world and there are many people with eating disorders in the world and while many people with eating disorders are vegetarian for ethical reasons, vegetarianism and eating disorders are not mutually exclusive.

I always feel bad for perpetuating that stereotype and being the vegetarian with an eating disorder. They really aren't related though!

I told them hundreds of times that I've been a vegetarian for 2 whole years (I was only sick for a year) and that I went vegetarian after watching animal slaughter videos, not to try to lose weight. My mom even had to vouch for me that I'm an ethical vegetarian. The dietitian still kept trying to get me to eat fish though. Ugh.
