Yes, I am a vegetarian

VeggiePeople ask me about being a vegetarian all the time, and ask me daft questions like “do you eat fish?”, perhaps even more so now I live in the land of Vikings and father-daughter-son-baby moose hunting safaris.

I just read this article http://www.slate.com/id/2190872 and it was almost like I’d written it myself, so if you want a better understanding of me, and many millions of people like me, take a read… It’s pretty spot on 😉

    I like people that for one reason or another takes a stand for something they believe in. Whether I agree with you or not is a completely different matter, but who am I to judge?

    You live your life as a vegetarian, and I’ll eat my McNuggets. Nice article 🙂

    I think what’s nice about the article is that he is spot on when he says that most vegetarians don’t ‘judge’ meat eaters for their decisions either.

    You really don’t have to worry about “us” being offended when you tuck into your sheeps head or whatever it is that takes your fancy 🙂

    You might find a different stance when it comes to the more extreme topics though, like fur, veal, fois gras and such things – you really shouldn’t draw too much attention to those in the face of any animal-lover, whether vegetarian or not 🙂
