    does anyone understand why there seems to be such a negative attitude towards vegetarians and vegans by most people?

    or at least that most people look at those dietary choices as the weirdest thing in the world?

    i used to not understand and condemn it, but after some internet scouring and such have found that veg/vegan diet is the healthiest possible.

    thoughts?

    My bf's a vegetarian... and I am perfectly fine with that. He eats his vegetarian food and I eat my meat...
    He is accepting of me being a meat eater because he knows I accept him for being a vegetarian.

    Usually the people who hate vegetarians hate them because of their attitude towards meat-eaters.... and how we kill animals. So it is THOSE vegetarians that I dislike.

    Seriously, you like your veggies, I like my meat.

    DONE.
    FINITO.

    because I'm sick to death of getting lectured by the next "holey vegetarian" who thinks its his/her mission to "convert me"

    Some are as bad as some Christians!

    Those who don't give a ficked fart what i eat.. there cool.

    I got a few mates who are vego, I'll often try new vegetarian meals I wanna try on them and they love it and I do too, but they know I aint giving up my big bits of meat for it!

    why should it bother anyone what they eat?

    But a vegetarian/vegan diet is not inherently healthy. Plenty of junk food is vegetarian or vegan. The ones that are healthier are healthy because they nourish their body with fruits and vegetables and other healthy whole foods whereas many people can't remember the last time they ate a vegetable....

    A large number of them are holier-than-thou asswipes with absolutely lucircrous desires of nobody eating meat. Plus some of the lies that is "common knownledge" to them is just ridiculous. my betfriend/roommare is a vegetarin but shes super easy going about other people not being and doesnt care, its her deal.

    Plus SO many do it wrong, but think they are doing such a great thing lol.

    It's got nothing to do with vegetarians. It's life - you'll always find people who, for no reason, don't like something.
