Whats up with peoples' reactions when they find out I'm vegan? Ok, a lot of the time I don't even say "i'm vegan," I'll just politely decline the animal derivative..(thats a depressing word)

Anyway, the other night I went to some little party with my boyfriend so I could meet some of his friends. They started BBQing...then one of them came in with this big old nasty bratwurst (i've always hated sausage, even in pre-veg dayz) and was like "MMMMM you want some of this?? I'm sure you've got the munchies! MMMM!" I was polite, I just said "no thanks" and hoped that would be it...but he kept trying to give it to me and so I said "I don't like meat; I don't eat it." Then he started saying things like "OH but its the best food in the world its so delicious how can you not eat it oh but i guess you like the other type of meat *wink wink*!" and then I just wanted to jump him.

I've tried to not let this bother me too much. I know we're some kind of freak to most people. But I can't stop thinking about what happened. Do people not know about that whole first impression thing? Do they not care? I never tell people how disgusted I am by what they eat...so can't they leave me alone for what I choose NOT to eat? I'm sure he was just a drunk idiot but GAHHHH. It's like some other kid who told me to pretend the cows killed my family so I could eat it. *MIND PUNCH*

OHHHH on another note: don't you hate it when people say: "Oh you can't have this." ? (did I punctuate correctly?)

sorry if this is a pointless rambling rant. I'm irritated.

What can I do or say next time this happens? I'm not very well-spoken and I suck at comebacks, and I don't want to be that pretentious vegan asshole. But maybe I should every now and then.

Yeah, I think tomorrow at lunch I'll be like:

ooooh, i know you want some of my SALAD... so crunchy and green... MMMMMMMMM. aren't you hungry?

Awesome.

"Seriously, try a bite! I think I washed all the soil out. Might be a couple of slugs in there but I figure that wouldn't bother someone like you. Oh, you don't eat bugs? Well, aren't you just Captain Inconsistent."

"After all...mmmm...slugs are just how we get our protien."

You guys are awesome... although sometimes you do make me laugh vegan wine out of my nose.

;D

I feel like people have a very poorly understood emotional connection to food that's kind of like clinging to a religion...fundamentalists of all stripes get their kicks from degrading the beliefs of others to make their own faith seem superior. Some can be just like that, only about diet instead of religion. I think the main point is that they both stem from just being intolerant.
