I hate any kind of seafood, always have and always will. Not because I keep fish though, I just find it totally disgusting. Nothing wrong with having food preferences.

That's like teasing your dad about a food he doesn't like to eat. It might not have anything to do with you owning them. Just a personal preference, like how a lot of people don't like black licorice (which I don't understand because it's delicious!! I always get the black jelly beans!)

Me too I love it!

Now back to the matter at hand....OP you tell your dad that you just don't like it. You don't have to eat it if you don't want to and instead of getting all upset....Take his power away by grinning and asking when the next fish fry is.

My dad and grandpa used to make me feel like crap and laugh when I cried (don't ask...Grandpa really was a horrible influence on my dad) and my mom told me to do something similar. Instead of crying I'd laugh and when my dad used to threaten to give me swirlies and hang me over the toilet I'd laugh and cheer begging for him to do it. He got so weirded out by it he put me down and never did anything like it again.

I felt a little weird about eating seafood cause of my betta's but then I figure: "Their carnivore fish who'd eat each other if they were in the same tank..." And ate with gusto...But that's just me I love seafood.

I don't eat any sort of meat. But I don't think that is weird at all. I'd ask them if they were having dog for supper! It's perfectly normal to not want to eat something that reminds you of your pet.

You will always be my best friend, .

I dunno how anyone can eat fish. Not just because we love pet fish, but because it IS GROSS!
