Regret Everything: Friends Won’t Let Friends Eat Different [Click for full post]
I was vegan for two weeks. It was impulsive: I’d read Gandhi’s autobiography, felt guilty that I never did anything moral with my life, and decided I would try to not eat animal products. It didn’t last long because when it comes to food I have the willpower of a German Shepherd who was given thumbs and a credit card.
What struck me in that brief time was how much crap my friends gave me for eating vegan. I think the standard joke is that vegans can’t stop telling everyone they’re vegan — but I found the opposite to be true: meat eaters get freaked out at the idea of someone not eating meat and lobby hard for them to join back in. And in fact, people will in general criticize and argue with each other about food strategies more than most other life decisions. [Keep Reading]
