I've been told that:
I should just eat free range.
I should not be vegan because I will die.
I need to bring my own food everywhere.
I'm "missing out" on "delicious meat"
And the biggest annoyance:
*someone complains about how my diet is not Biblical or whatever*
me: did you know that Adam and Eve were vegan and they didn't eat meat until the fall? Also, God tells us to take care of ourselves, and by not eating cholesterol, trans fats and animal proteins I am doing a way better job of that than you are. I've done extensive research and I know what I am doing, but thanks for the offer. God only said it was ok to eat meat, not that we have to, and I'm pretty sure that He doesn't approve of factory farming, and unnecessary desecration of His animal friends. (not all of those responses at once, maybe one or two)
them: *blank stare* well you should drink milk. cow's like to be milked. /or/ you should eat meat cause it was put here for us.
me: cow milk is for the baby cows /or/ if animals were put here for us, why were they created before man was? didn't God say to take care of the animals, not "chop them into bits, fry them, and eat them"
them: you should still eat it
