I think it is safe to say that most of us have been considered weird by meat eaters for our lifestyle choices. Whether you're a vegetarian or a vegan the choices that you make are not always easy for others to understand. I for one often feel like the odd duck among my friends and family for being a vegetarian. The fact that I can live my life with out *bacon* is almost like a nuclear bomb going off in their heads. I think that this site is great for bringing our "weirdness" together but I can't help but wonder what else is considered weird to 'the outside world'. For me, it's the fact that I don't drink liquor ( now I only drink water). For a lot of people this 'weird' thing about me is almost always tied into me being a vegetarian. The conversation is normally, "You don't drink, you don't eat meat, you don't </insert list of everything else>". Some times the fact that I am a vegetarian is blamed for the reason I don't eat/drink other things, things that truly have nothing to do with being a vegetarian/vegan. I would love to hear why else you're weird besides the "irrational" decision to not eat meat.

Man I would love to visit India, the fact that every restaurant is sure to have a vegetarian dish just makes me jealous. It most be hard living in a country that only sees half aspect of animal cruelty VS. the entire thing like consuming dairy products.

I think it's wicked that you are a teetotaler! #thingsincommon!It's comforting to know that in the end we are weird, but that's okay. To each their own ya know :)

Because I don't eat enough protein apparently.

If I don't eat enough protein without meat, then how else I can jog and workout everyday as a vegetarian, when, as a meat eater, I lack energy for anything active.

Because I eat weird food.

Tell me how fruits, veggies, beans, nuts, seeds and grains are weird. Tell me how weird it is to prepare food in 5 minutes without dealing with bones and blood.

Because... there are lots of reasons. Being weird can be special in a good way sometimes.

Sharon, I think everyone on this site is in your group of weird with you! I really don't understand the whole protein issue. I swear, once someone hears that I am a vegetarian they suddenly have a masters in nutrition. OY vey! "Oh yes, please give me a nutrition 101 class while you eat double bacon cheese burger....don't let me or the screaming of your body stop you". Welcome to the weird club I call life Sharon!

Being weird for a cat to be vegan and able to type on keyboard in front of the computer after drinking ginger beer for 15 minutes , yes I'm weird .
