I wouldn't do it. Unfriend the person if you don't like them but I don't think a passive aggressive post would be very productive.

I wouldn't post a video, either. That doesn't sound like a bad comment, more a "you have more willpower than me" kind of sentiment from them. I'd probably reply to their comment on your page, rather than going onto theirs, if you do want to reply. (My reply to that kind of comment is something along the lines of "yeah, I wasn't sure i could go vegan either to begin with, I gave it a month's trial and I'm still vegan 16 years on! ")

So wait some of you sub corn syrup for agave or maple syrup in some recipes and it tastes fine??

I bought corn syrup for some baking recipe once and after making that it's been sitting in my cabinet untouched. It never occurred to me I could use it in savory dishes.
Do you sub 1:1?

Posting here because it seems the most appropriate place, but "peeve" is kind of trivializing for what's troubling me. This is something that comes up fairly often, and that I can only talk about with other vegans because...well, I think we've probably all been in situations where we see cognitive dissonance but are leery of pointing it out for various reasons.

ANYWAY, a friend of mine posted a series of wonderful photos from a weekend retreat organized by her sister and her partner to celebrate their wedding. They chipped in with a few members of their chosen (and mostly queer) family to rent a lodge in rural Montana, complete with sleeping cabins, hiking trails, a communal kitchen...it looked gorgeous, and like an incredible amount of fun. These are cool, amazing people: educated, interesting, creative, socially conscious, politically active, and involved in their communities. And yet - I bet you've guessed where this is going - every picture of people cooking food or eating a meal features meat, with the exception of one showing a variety of homemade salsas. Otherwise it was all sausages and BBQ chicken and huevos rancheros and the ubiquitous bacon that I wish would vanish from the earth, etc., and it's just...why can't people who care so deeply about injustice, inequality, exploitation, and inclusiveness take the next logical step and extend that care to non-humans? How can people who are otherwise nuanced, critical thinkers appear so oblivious (or impervious?) to the incongruity between almost everything they do, think, say, and support, and what's on their plates? It makes me sad, and sort of tired. Anyway, most of the photos were stunning (besides the meat pics), so I simply "liked" the photo album and moved on. But it left - you should excuse the expression - a bad taste in my mouth, so thanks again, PPK, for being a place I can bring this sort of discomfort and be understood.

This is wrong on so many levels. I went for lunch with some people from work who all eat meat. We were talking about Christmas plans and I said that I'd be in Cambodia. One of them said that I'd be eating dog for Christmas dinner and they all laughed. I am not normally gobsmacked but this stopped me in my tracks. We were in a Chinese restaurant (irrelevant), they were ALL eating meat, and yet because I'll be in Asia I'll be eating dog for Christmas? I stayed calm and said that of course I wouldn't be eating dog as I don't eat meat, but that if I did eat meat it'd be fine because eating dog isn't any different to eating cow or pig. I had the obligatory 'Oooh I could never eat dog' from most of them, but one of them did actually put her forkful of beef down to give it some thought.

My bagel-related peeve is that it took me three years of living here, then moving a way and coming back and then ANOTHER year to discover the bagel place in town that has bagels and - youse guys - delicious house-made sun dried tomato tofutti. AND they have delicious Mexican mochas.

And it's been sitting downstairs from my hair salon this entire time.

My bagel peeve is that you keep rubbing my bagel shop-free nose in your cornucopia of bagel shop options. And flaunting your availability of tofu cream cheese options. Damn you, Yankees!

We don't all have bagel shops! I stand in bagel-less solidarity with you.

The latest news has me potentially moving to a city with no bagel places as early as February, if that makes anyone feel better. I have to gorge myself now!!

Perhaps the most petty of pet peeves: I work in a tiny office and have a super nice boss who buys a half-sheet cake for our (SEVEN PERSON) office every time someone has a birthday. Yay! I don't get upset about not eating other people's cake, because. . . come on, that'd be just a bit too demanding.

However, my birthday's in three weeks, and I don't know how I feel about a dairy and egg cake being purchased in my honor. Not only that. . . a cake addressed to me that I can't eat. . . would be depressing. I've told my boss that I'm vegan before, but not a lot of people know what that entails. I'm just not sure if I should say anything, or grin and bare it.

Yeah I think it would be depressing to have a non-vegan cake bought for you on your b-day. Is there a vegan cake that you can buy somewhere? Or would you like to make one? I might say something like "Hey, my birthday's coming up, and since I'm vegan I figured I'd pick up the cake this time!", all cheery and I'm-happy-to-do-it style. Then maybe your boss will be nice and insist on doing it for you.

I think you must be mistaken. There are no bagels in San Diego. :p
No, actually, my mother has been talking about some acceptable bakery she discovered out there, where apparently they even know the term "hard roll."

I would definitely bring it up and I would offer to bring the cake if they can't find an acceptable alternative. It is no fair not to be able to eat your own birthday cake.

The closest thing to a bagel place we have is Dunkin Donuts. At least they have peanut butter.

Not eating your own birthday cake is both depressing and totally awkward for everyone involved. I'd definitely bring it up.

My co-workers have always been great about getting me a vegan cake at WF, but if that's not an option, bringing your own cake might be the best solution.

It is very sweet of your boss to buy the cake for everyone's birthday, but you should definitely bring it up.

I am pretty quite about lunches and stuff that is provided at the office, and just bring my own or don't eat it, but IT'S YOUR BIRTHDAY!

I bet if you offer to bring it, he will ask you where HE can get one for you too.

Why, if you know the people you offered to cook for, demanded to cook for, are vegan, why cook things they can't eat? If you wanted to show off so badly, do it in a way everyone can enjoy.

Update!

Yes. Remind me about this when you bring in your cake for a special treat I will have for you then.


Works for me! I get to bake AND I get something else. Woot woot. I think I'll bring a Boston Cream Pie. I haven't had "yellow" cake since my pregan days.

Picky omnis who can't go a single meal without meat. And ranch dressing. That's the short, non-bitchy version of why I am irritated with my traveling companion.

Ugh, YES, WHY is this a difficult concept to some people?!

Reminds me of when I was on the receiving end of 'hospitality' that entailed: horrified gasps and scrunched up faces at the mention of me being vegan, being told "well you'll have to UN-vegan while you're staying with us", then being completely shot down when I offered to cook for myself because "our family likes to look after our guests, we're going to insist on doing everything but wipe your asparagus". I quickly found an excuse to avoid staying with them.

It was once part of my job to read VegNews FB comments. I am so happy I had you guys first, because ho-ly, I would have denounced all vegans forever.
