I concur, sir. IMO, Jennybee is a valued, respected, and influential member. In addition, the posts made in this thread by other TTA members is direct evidence of the fact that people care about her and value what she has to say and offer.

I don't think they assume I'm a militant vegan. I think they just have a problem with vegans for some reason and somehow feel the need to put that on me.

Well let's just say he eats very little vegetables or fruit in his daily diet. You can't reason with or expect my brother to eat something he genuinely dislikes, even if we know it's good for him.

I'll leave it to his gut ecosystem to reason with him. They'll let him know soon enough. "Hey Dude! We're gonna need a little microbial help here if you want us to keep decomposing these hard turds you keep throwing at us. Throw us some fiber for God's sake or you're gonna be lucky if you shit once a week.."

Oh, and why are we talking about diets?

I'm fine with constructive debates on veganism.

I'm totally up for that. Stereotypes and nastiness, that I'm not okay with.

That's the thing, stereotypes.

I see a lot of that, out there and in here, too. I think your food thread was a great success, just look at the size of it.

It's not about agreeing on things, it's about respect. I respect your choice as you have respected mine. That's how things should be, that is how you end up having fruitful discussions.

This forum is for THINKING atheists, not attacking ones.

That said, I haven't even read yet what upset you. Just going by this thread here for now.

I don't think our food choices define us as people. We should all be able to eat what makes us feel good . I also think that our food choices are partially dictated by our specific DNA, our bodies are not all the same and different people are going to be naturally drawn to or repulsed by different foods.

Just carry on as before Jenny. You know we love you here, and you know you want to.

If they make such an assumption - it must be because they showed up last week...

You've always struck me as one of the vegans that does it - just cuz YOU like it...

You've never tried telling everyone else what to do -- -the definition of a militant vegan...............

That just makes you the lovable girl who lets us eat the last hamburger....
