Some of it's really good, some of it's lame, but mostly what I got out of it is that I want the gif from #17 playing in a corner of my vision at all times.

7. Getting constantly trapped under the weight of your own logic...
...and having to be like, "Yes, true. OK, that is a great point, but also...remember how this all began with me just politely turning down the cheese dip? YOU STARTED THIS NIGHTMARE CONVERSATION. You just forgot that you did." GODDAMN IT,


this one is so true!

actually, i kind of like all of these.
agree with the cheese comment, but...that picture of oozing brie is not appetizing.

this might be the least annoying thing about veganism on the internet? (besides vegan websites, obvs) or maybe i'm high? i dunno.

#10. Getting Lumped in With Gluten Free People.

Was at my folks' place last weekend, and my mom asked "So what do you do for bread?" I said "I eat bread." She was confused and said "but, bread has wheat in it." I tried to straighten her up on the concept that vegan is utterly unrelated to gluten-free, but she was still confused. I'm not convinced she entirely gets the gluten free thing anyway: she said "I tend to prefer my food without the gluten in it." Then took a drink of her beer.

I agree here!

but really #0 is animal exploitation. Serious vegan is serious, I suppose.

i don't ever go around telling people i'm vegan, i can't deal with the following conversations any more. but omnis are so flabbergasted when you turn down the cheese dip, they must KNOW why you don't want it.

GAAAH! I know - it's already making my morning so much better!

But honestly, most of those things don't bother me all that much, and a few of them annoyed me as much anything I hear from clueless omnivores, because the overall sense I took away was that being vegan is some sort of "sacrifice," albeit a worthy one. I mean, the bacon and cheese ones? Call me crazy, but I actually don'tmiss either of those things, nor is the end-all and be-all of my food dreams better fake meat. To say nothing of the preachy vegan one(s)? Talk about reinforcing stereotypes.

i think we should perpetuate the mispronunciation for our own entertainment. get introduced to someone at a party w/ the subtext, "she's vegan," and before eyebrows can be raised, throw them off w/, "actually, it's pronounced vee-jan." or include some etymology, "actually, the original origin of the word is german, so a more correct pronunciation would be fee-gan."

ok, i would never do this, but it sounds more fun than talking about where i get my protein.

THIS x100000!
this is what bothers me so incessantly about the "want to know who the vegan at the party is? dont worry they'll tell you" joke that is so prevalent on facebook.

i have NEVER walked into a party and been like THE VEGAN IS HERE or gone around giving people the stank eye when they bite into a hamburger. if someone offers me something i cant eat i usually dont even tell them WHY i just say no thank you. it's like YOU GET HOUNDED for turning down something. like "what do you mean you dont want a hot dog? what kind of freak are you?"

also i think alot of vegans are very passionate about being vegans and about cooking and animals so like for example i will post pics on facebook of food taht ive made (yes im one of those people), etc but it's not like ALL YOU OMNIS ARE HORRIBLE AND ME MIGHTY VEGAN IS AWESOME its more like "wow this is really awesome i really like this" or "this cause is really important to me check it otu if you're interested" i find it to be no different than any other subject someone might be passionate about.
some fb friends i have are really into cars. i could give 2 shiitakes about cars so when they post car stuff i just scroll on by......

Oh, good Lard, the hounding to try something! One of my co-workers the other day (who even knows I'm vegan but forgot) was like "You haven't had any of this cake yet! There's one piece left! You MUST have it!" and kept insisting. I really didn't want to have to wave the vegan card, but she wouldn't take a simple "no thank you" for an answer, so finally I had to remind her. Why can't someone just accept that you don't want to eat something? It reminded me of a waiter once hounding a friend of mine because he didn't order alcohol when the rest of us did. Dude, let him drink whatever the fork he wants.

yeah the other vegetarian in the office is always trying to shove food down my throat. she's also a manager so i feel weird when she's like offering me to try her leftovers from home.

shes like YOU CAN TOTALLY EAT THIS. and im like "i just dont want to!!"

refusing food always becomes a vegan issue whether it actually is or not. sometime you just dont want something!

Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar.

And vegans don't eat cigars.

Except cigargans.

10. Getting lumped in with the gluten-free people.
Yeah, for some reason a lot of people think gluten free = vegan and then they think they're helpful by pointing out the gluten free things on a menu.

and 9. People saying "humans are 'meant' to be carnivores." If they're going to say this at least say "omnivores" and not "carnivores." I've read so many Yelp reviews about vegan restaurants where someone says starts off their review saying "I'm a carnivore" -- no you're not a lion or a shark, you're a omnivorous human.
