I should really make a sign that says this and just carry it around with me, cause I feel the same way.

My partner says that I am so awkward to be around during social situations, that is why nobody invites me out anymore. I don't make a big deal, I just quitely order a salad. Or, I just eat ahead of time and drink beer or something. I dont make a big deal out of it, but apparently it REALLY BOTHERS PEOPLE. Like so much that they don't want to be around me if there is food involved.

Really, I don't care what you are eating, I don't feel left out. I am happy with my beer. If it makes YOU uncomfortable to eat steak in front of ME, then it's you that has the problem.

I don't make a big deal out of it. I pretty much refuse to discuss the politics of veganism while people are eating, I think it is rude, but apparently NOT doing that is equally rude and socially awkward? Maybe I should ask Dear Abby. (or not)


That sounds like a pretty mean thing for your partner to say to you!

I've met people like that. Basically, the fact that vegans exist seems to offend them, and since they don't think they're doing anything wrong, they decide it must be something you're doing. It sucks. But it's not your fault!

I always feel vaguely uncomfortable and embarrassed because it's just food, yo; get a grip.

Yes! I hate this! I have a Sheltie (nutty neurotic crazy dog) and a mixed German Shepard / Retriever mutt (sweetest, gentlest, kindest soul) and people give the Sheltie all the attention, chasing me down to pet him and calling him Lassie, and they ignore my poor mutt, though she is the sweetest most lovable dog ever :( It makes me so sad.

The sexy chocolate ads annoy me greatly, but have you seen the one for Lays potato chips? A woman sits around biting her lip and looking around to see if anyone is watching before being seduced - I mean, biting into a damn potato chip. Haaaaate.

Who told my daughter the joke that "you don't have to ask a vegan if they're vegan, they'll be sure to tell you"?

I NEVER am pushy, and i don't really appreciate being classified as such.

I have this with my beagle. He is more interested in his walk or other dogs than people who think he is soooo cute. My corgi mix loves people so much and she is beautiful. Everyone talks about the beagle though.

Anyone see the ad (forget what it was for) where it defines VIP as Vegans Inhaling Porterhouse and the two vegans are sitting in a restaurant, wafting the scent of steak into their noses? What the fork?

And torque, I've heard that joke from people who had no idea I was vegan and then I smile and tell them, much to their shock. It also kills the joke.

This joke is all over facebook, and of course the moment you call them out on being douchebags, you're reinforcing the joke.

I expect we've already had this, but when you get introduced to new people as "this is X, she's vegan". Like that's my main attribute. And I happen to have a shitty cold and wasn't wearing make-up so probably look really unhealthy today. When I feebly protested she then went on to say what I actually do at work, and that I make things and blah blah, but urgh, it's annoying!

That was for some hotel in Vegas - I was there recently and it was on a huge billboard, I think at the Monte Carlo? But yeah, how in the hell does that sound like a good idea? Sure, what I really want to do when I'm in Vegas is eat a huge chunk of something disgusting that's going to make me massively ill. It actually turned my stomach, looking at it.

People who look at a beautiful wild turkey just minding its own business, eating grass with its family, and immediately talk about how they is exactly what they want for Thanksgiving - an organic, grain-fed bird. Who looks at a beautiful wild animal and thinks - YUM?

Oh that's right, my friend who asked me to help her go back to being vegan.

A cookbook author I liked from omni days gushes about how she squealed with delight over seeing little lambs and calves because she looooooooves them so much. But she has recipes for both in her books.

Whole Foods is waxing poetic about grass fed beef all over their paper bags. Lame!

I have a vendetta against turkeys, but even i don't look at them and want to eat them (a "family" [using my cousin Vinnie's Cake Boss pronunciation, mind you, fambily] of New Jersey turkeys broke my ribs many years ago and i'm still pissed).

Facebook friend posting pics of dead things, like pheasants. According to the comments, absolutely forking no one wants to see that. What a way to start the day.

Living in Idaho, everyone and their cousin hunts. Around this time of year, this is very prevalent on FB for me, as well. Parents posting pics of there kids with their first deer, elk, etc...ugh. It makes me sad.

Quarantined, ijustdiedinside, choirqueer All three of you have extremely stupid things written in the text at the bottom of your posts, children may be on here and your encouraging all of em to become degenerate, sex crazed, pathetic garbage like yourselves. If your vegans,vegetarians you should have morals, are any of you even vegans,vegetarians or are you just on here for entertainment, to mess with people, or saving face, or looking to build an illusioned image, or just trying to have sex with a non-meat eater or are you just completely insincere?
People like you are an embarrasment to all of us who are sincere, honest, caring, compassionate and truly want things on our planet to be better, so that no one has to experience suffering, pain, being lied to, or hurt in any other way.

A friend of mine recently went back to eating meat after being vegan for a couple years. Whatever, it's their body, their life, their decision. What really annoys me is the endless array of "Look! Here's a photo of me eating cheese! Look! Here's a photo of me eating meat! What a relief!" posts on Facebook, and the chorus of "THANK GOD YOU CHANGED YOUR ANNOYING HABITS SO YOU CAN EAT BACON!" type replies to all of them.

Roommate's boyfriend has been here all weekend. He's kind of rude and obnoxious. We never made any rules about having animal products in the house, but roommate knows it makes us uncomfortable, so he doesn't buy that stuff, unless it's like take-out from a restaurant on occasion. So last night I made everyone vegan chili dogs, and his boyfriend went out and bought dairy cheese to put on his. We already had daiya. Rude, or am I over-sensitive? I'm already annoyed that there are eggs and cheese in the fridge, but putting it on a vegan meal that a vegan made you in their own home just feels like blatant disrespect.
