Connect with vegetarian and vegan friends from all over the world.
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.
