Something that really irks me is some peoples constant desire to belittle and undermine the choice not to eat meat. |
The snort of disapproval I get when I tell people I'm vegetarian is really frustrating sometimes. I tend not to mention my dietary choice AT ALL unless someone is cooking for me or they ask why I'm choosing something without meat in whilst out at a restaurant.
I think people get the impression that because someone is vegetarian it means they instantly believe they are 'above' omnivores or out to convert them and thus this must be instantly put down with snide remarks and silly little comments. Either that or like Dolly they just can't understand the reasoning behind the choice and for whatever reason this upsets them.
