Annoying Vegans Aren't Converting Anyone

Rant 61

obnoxious vegan
You just made it my business!!!!
Some people have dietary restrictions. I'm one of them, even though it's for my health, not moral reasons. Whatever your reasons for eating one type of food and shunning another, that's your business. Hopefully you consider your own health and the health of your family when making your meal plans, and if you're really gung-ho you also consider the environment. And good for you, for looking outside your own home and living your life with a sense of responsibility towards the earth, and your fellow man (and beast).

I'm a big fan of responsible eating, and do it myself as often as possible. Which is why I hate to see the most annoying person in the entire world call herself a vegan, while spouting off total fabrications and condemnations about those who do not choose her way of life. Really, vegan lady, you should at least understand myths vs. facts before you go batshit crazy on YouTube.

Yep. If you eat meat and dairy, you're totally responsible for killing people on 9/11. Who knew? This obnoxious turd did. Except she's totally wrong. Also, that whole "taxes" argument is a non-starter. There are plenty of things we don't want our taxes paying for, but we don't get to pick and choose. Because that would be crazy. Just like you, aggro vegan!

I'm always amazed at how people think you'll come over to their side if only they shame you and yell at you enough. Because we all want to be on the team with the biggest a-hole, right? All this lady is doing is making people like me -- people who strive to live more like vegan-types than not -- want to go out and order up a huge juicy steak smothered in cheese sauce.

Are you a vegan? Do you think she's helping?

I eat only 5 percent meat during the week. The rest is Veggies, grains, fruits.

I think she just wants attention.  This is how to do it by being extreme.  Everyone knows we have freedom of speech, but we can't say anything about 9/11.

Eating a vegan diet isn't necessarily healthier.  Its all about how you go about it.

Wow. I have a friend who is vegan. He is the exact opposite of this girl. He laughed when I told him how good veal was the first time I tried it. His girlfreind however, had a look of horror on her face. I don't think she talked to me after that. Oh well. But seriously, this girl crossed the line.

I am vegan and I've booted people from my facebook for behaving like this nutter. Most of us are just normal people who happen to care about our diet and the planet a bit more than average. It's not something that often comes up in conversation, most of my friends only find out when they offer my kid a handful of cheesy goldfish because not only do we have ethical objections but the kid is lactose intolerant and the one time he accidentally ate a handful on a playdate he spent the rest of the day in the bathroom. Not fun. Usually people ask if it's hard avoiding dairy and I just tell them we've been doing it since well before he came along anyway.



I used to have a friend who was truly obnoxious about it. We were at Starbucks once and she ordered a soy latte. When the barista asked if she wanted whip on it she totally freaked out at the poor guy, asking why she would want whipped cow pus excretions on her drink when she had ordered it without bovine poison and blah blah blah. One of many reasons we haven't spoken in years.

the poor baby cow. :( 


Family guy was more convincing then this girl.  There was an episode that the baby cow came right out the mother, straight into the slaughter shoot and right onto a familys dinner table. 


I was thinking about going vegan, but I love my hamburgers and chicken.

@rhondaveggie,   They say you can tell alot about a person from the way they treat people who serve them.  I had a friend once that treated anyone who waited on her rude.  As I got to know her I realized how rude she really was.

I wish I had that much willpower but I'm a carnivore to the core.

I wonder if she will also go after those animals who eat other animals and eat fish who eat other fish and blame them for something and then say they made it her business... She obviously doesn't grasp this whole food chain thing
