Rant: it happened again at a party last night. I didn't bring the subject up, but a friend noticed I wasn't eating the food with meat in it and asked. Immediately, I was the butt of heaps of jokes. I wasn't trying to convert anyone, look down on anyone, preach to anyone; I was just not eating meat. I explained my reasons.
I don't like preacher vegetarians any more than you guys - I don't like preachy anybody. But I also don't like being mocked and ridiculed for trying to do what I see as a good thing - it's my life, my choice, it doesn't effect them, so why do they have to try and talk me out of it, or abuse me for that decision? :(
Rant 2: Soy milk is just not my thing. I can take it on cereal, in tea and coffee (I prefer black tea anyway), but I cannot drink it. I need to find an alternative, because this is blergh. :p
