“If i’m with friends and we should meet,Just pass me by, don’t even speak. Know the word’s “discreet”

when part-time lovers Vegans!

I clearly tell people I am a vegetarian. I do not ever intentionally eat things that were killed. However on one of my social media profiles it says “Vegetarian, mostly Vegan” and I leave it there in kind of a pacifist version of Come at me Bro! In the harsh world of Vegans you are not allowed to be mostly Vegan, or “trying” to be Vegan. They will explain to you that Veganism is a lifestyle not a diet. Many of the dictionaries of the world would disagree.

I get aggravated at the closed mindedness and unforgivingness of many people in that world. Sometimes the words don’t matter, it is the intent but there are so many who have claimed ownership of the word Vegan and have decided the rules for what you must do to qualify for the club that it we end up with 14 different labels for people. **

This whole mashed train of thought started with people who work in Animal rescue. Can you work tirelessly to rescue dogs & cats while grilling burgers?

And that was it, that is all I have to say on this today! Just try and be a decent person who does not intentionally cause harm.

**A lot like religion and specifically Christianity

    I don’t know that I would ever seek out the friendship of a vegan. My impression is that they can be very judgmental almost hateful if a person doesn’t believe and behave like they do. And yes that is like a lot of religious/Christian folks.

    The funny thing is that I respect their beliefs but feel so judged. Also, how I feel about religious/Christian folks. I really admire the commitment but not being looked down on because I don’t believe the way they do.

      A long time ago the vegetarian group I belonged to became the Vegetarian/Vegan group. We use to get together for dinner occasionally. One of the Vegans requested that at the next dinner everyone eat vegan because they did not think it was fair that they had to watch someone eat something that they didn’t approve of. But that is not the real world is it? Everyone has to compromise every day or we all end up just screaming at each other and building hate.
      I think we need people like that because it keeps us pushing forward and examining our own actions and ideas but it can be awfully tiring.
