    Because I crave a nice slice of meat, with the blood still oozing out of it as I cut it.

    I attempted vegetarianism for a pathetic 6 weeks.

    I copped so much cr*p for it, so I suspect someone who's been vegetarian (or heaven forbid, vegan!) would get so many comments about it.

    A lot of people don't just give a basic comment - they want to know WHY. Then when you say why, they seem to get offended by your reasoning (if it's ethical) or start telling you why you're wrong about everything, why you're lacking in important nutrients, etc etc. It can end up in a full scale attack sometimes, just because you say, "No meat thanks, but I bought this alternative along, so as to not be a pain. *smile*"

    So people, IME, are definitely jerks to vegetarians at times, and as I said, I only dabbled in it for a very short time.

    For me it's a combination. I actually throw up when the smell of meat cooking wafts into my house. I find it disgusting to touch, taste, smell. I also don't eat it because of the cruelty factor and because I find we are healthier without it.

    I'm a happy omni eater. I have been vegetarian and could be again, I think tofu tastes like ar$e but love legumes etc... I do find though, that I seriously crave meat and I'm fortunate that we have our own livestock, so I know how the animal is raised and slaughtered.

    I feed my children a similar diet to myself and believe it to be nutritionally sound and darn yummy, but if they wanted to be vego/vegan I'd happily cater to that.

    People are confused about things they dont consider 'normal'. Sure, in an Utopian world people wouldnt need to explain anything to anyone when it comes to their choices. We however, dont have that, so for now people need to just get over it and accept the fact that their choices are going to be questioned, discussed and sometimes scoffed at. Its a matter of shrugging your shoulders and realising its your life and not giving a sh!t what people say.
