Because mine does.
There is not a scrap of processed, fast or easy on any of my food. There is no meat in my food, no oil, no margarine, no sugar, no white, no ketchup, or salt.
Just plain food.
Just plain food.
Why does this excite some people and infuriate others? Why does there have to be a division of what I eat. Why do I have to draw the line between what others eat and if I choose to read them or talk to them or associate?
A fellow blogger came out of the vegan closet and told on herself. She eats meat. SHE EATS MEAT. She has since been cursed at, villianized, spat upon, thrown out and threatened.
Someone actually threatened her life because she ate meat. I am apaulled at this...
How absurd is that. How unreal and insane is that, to threaten another persons life over food.
Some will say, this makes perfect sense over a living, breathing creature. She has no right to make a decision if the cow she wants to eat will live or die.
Here are her reasons...
She claims health reasons are why she decided to eat meat.
She claims her doctor told her do this or become more ill.
She claims that she made the choice of herself over another living creature.
I do not agree with some of her excuses and to tell you I read her would be a lie, but I used to read her everyday. I use to hang on every word she wrote. I used to hope she would read my blog. She is the main reason I started my blog, I loved her fruit pictures. She really knew how to make tangerines look great. lol
Then she became a zealot.
I am not much for zealots. I have no time to be a zealot over anything. I cannot tolerate up in your face people let alone an in your face ethical vegan. I am about as vegan as you can get, unless you count the woman who married her goat. I eat more healthy than anyone I know, other than Alicia .
I have saved animals, I have tromped through rain and mud, to save the bloody abused dog from the insane owner. I love animals. I hate abuse. I hate the way we look at animals in the food industry. But, I am not going to say I abhor eating animals and eat a real cheeseburger while writing a vegan blog! (I do not know if she did this, I just threw it in.)
There is nothing that will insight a riot faster than religion, politics and food!
Food being number one.
All people are crazy over their food. I have been seriously ticked off over what people have said about my food. That I am a crazy hippy and I will move into a commune any day...
If I found the right republican, christian commune where I could just be married to my husband, where my children wouldn't be victimized, where we all ate healthy untouched, ungenetically modified food and wore hemp dresses, I would sign up...*sigh*
Here is the whole point of this post, if there is any point at all...
No matter what other people choose to do with their life, it really is their life and just because we choose to be a small part of that by reading their blog does not give us the right to abuse our right to voice our opinion.
She changed her lifestyle, she made a choice for her. Is it right for me, no. Is it right for you, maybe not.
Do some feel victimized and jilted by her betrayal? Yeah, but they will just have to put on their big girl panties and move on.
Better yet, it is not better to forgive and forget, that way you can just delete her from your reading list.
I did a long time ago...
I didn't even know until my friend and I were texting back and forth.....
I was stunned at her admission of guilt. I was amazed at her lack of knowledge about veganism, outside of animals. I was shocked that she never questioned her doctor.
I am happy I let her go..
I like my food, I like my health and I like knowing that I am smart enough to be a vegan.
