If you're not willing to eat your own menstruation then you're Not Vegan Enough.

Why do people want to tell you about every arsehole vegan they ever met?

This.

Back-handed compliments too. Oh you're the coolest vegan I ever met! I forgot you were vegan! Vegans are usually *insert insult here*

Well, all the vegans I know are cool as shiitake. so there.

Seriously. I don't think I have met any of these crasshole vegans except through someone else having "met" one and told me about it.

I have definitely run across crasshole vegans online (not on the PPK!), in the comments of articles being mean/preachy to omnis, being vegan policey to other vegans, telling people that they wouldn't have gotten cancer if they were vegan, being fatphobic, etc. I like to think they're a vocal minority, though. Pretty much all the vegans I've met in real life have been awesome! That said, almost all the vegans I know in person are PPKers, so that may be a skewed sample.

Is it anti-feminist to think periods are gross? I'm not ashamed to have one, but it's blood coming out of an orifice. It's kind of gross.

Haha. I haaaaate my period. Not anti feminist! I just don't like all the blood, especially when you have to go to workon heavy days.

I hate my period. When I first met my (now) husband, he always called it my moon as though it was something beautiful. No dude, it forking sucks.

Also, I hate to say it, but I've met some crasshole vegans. But it doesn't have anything to do with veganism! I had the worst vegan boss of all time and he was just that way because he was an awful person who just happened to be vegan, and I dare say he was only attracted to veganism because he had a narcissistic personality and looked for anything he could employ to make him better than everyone else.

Bodies do all kind of gross things. I don't think we're obligated to think periods aren't gross in order to call ourselves feminist. I mean, they're normal and all that, and if you don't think blood and tissue sloughing off is gross, that's fine too. I think the interplay of hormones that makes the whole cycle happen is pretty damn fascinating, but there's an element of gross too. I'm OK with that.

I think my issue with gross might be that it gets a bit fuzzy between gross and shameful or gross and dirty [not saying you guys are implying that, let's be clear].
I agree with Imogene that it sort of makes me raise an eyebrow but more i think because of the judgmental kind of feeling of "gross".
Then again I may be a weirdo because i don't really find anything gross- or maybe i can't even really define gross. Sad or bad-smelling or i-wouldn't-eat-that but yeah, maybe this is more of a personal problem, actually.

This happened to me once at a pizza place when I ordered a thin crust pizza, no cheese, with spinach, banana peppers, onions, etc. My waitress looked at me weird when taking the order but when she brought it out she was like "it actually looks great!"

I was kinda surprised too because until then I was used to pizza places being stingy with toppings, but it was really a beautiful pizza.

I feel like I'm allowed to call my own period gross, but no one else is. Like, if I bloodied the sheets or something and my boyfriend said, 'Ew, gross!' I would be like, 'Nope! It's NATURAL!' But then when I'm changing my diva cup and it's all chunky, I'm totally ok with thinking, 'Dude, yuck.'

Luckily, my boyfriend actually thinks my period is less gross than I do.

It isn't just vegans it is any interest group. I am a cyclist and for some reason everyone thinks I am some kind of ambassador here to field complaints about something they saw some cyclist do that they didn't like or how some cyclist pissed them off.

It does get old.

I hate it when they're stingy with the veggies...c'mon, I'm not getting your expensive topping that is included in the cost of the pizza (cheese), you can afford to throw on a few more mushrooms.
