In order to avoid an idiotic arguement? I find myself doing this lately, because for some reason, just recently my family especially seems to either forget or not care I'm vegan. So they offer me something cheesey or something with eggs, ( eg, a cupcake) and I politely decline, reminding them I'm vegan, and they get offended, and say something like, "Oh, god... It's just pizza. You can have a little cheese."When I try to explain, politely why I don't WANT a little cheese, they say, "Oh whatever... you're such a fanatic." Or, "I don't care about the animals" Or even something like, "That's stupid." So recently I just usually say, "I'm on a diet" and they accept that... I friggin hate close-minded uneducated people. Sorry, ranting a little today I guess. This comes after we had some people over the other day, and my hubby ordered some pizza, and after me asking him to ask the pizza guy if the dough contained any dairy or eggs, and if it didn't, then order one with veggies and no cheese.... well, the pizza gets there, there was a veggie pizza with cheese, and my hubby says, oh, they said the dough wasn't vegan... but he didn't even ask them, according to my mom. He then tells me he didn't understand what I was saying.My own husband... anyway, sorry people, ranting again.
