True but I can choose my immediate circle of friends and people who I want around me. That I do have control over.

You can do that here too that is why there is the Ignore List and Private Messages.

I decided to leave the forum. Every once in awhile, a vegan/meat thread will pop up on here and after reading through it, reading some of the comments, I just really don't feel like I belong here. I think what bothers me most is that I never try to "convert" anyone to my way of thinking. In fact, I'm very supportive of everyone on here--even when it's choices I may not personally agree with. So, yeah, it kinda hurts when people have rude, nasty comments coupled with stereotypes for the way I choose to live my life, especially when I do nothing to solicit them. Anyway, I'm over it and there are no hard feelings, as I say I just don't think this is the right place for me. I wish you all the best that life has to offer. Take care.


Holy crap! I really wish you would reconsider this. You are by far the nicest person here. I will quit eating steak if you stay.

I am sorry to read this. I do understand the discomfort, but it seems that it happens only occasionally and only on this subject.

Please reconsider.

RE: What did you eat today?
Jenny, I don't see any indications in the other thread that you or your lifestyle choices were being disrespected. Quite the contrary, almost every comment on that thread is, "If that's how you want to live your life, then go for it" and most of the comments are supportive of the choice, even if they didn't make the same one.

You had one guy who said that his opinion was that it was not a good option. One. If you consider that a hostile environment to your dietary choices/lifestyle, I'm frankly rather flabbergasted.

Can you think of any subject... ANY subject... where one of us has not told the other one "well that's just silly!" at some point in the discussion?

I hear you. And you're right, I can see where you would feel that way given the way people talk about veganism even if trying to be humorous.

I disagree that you are not a good fit for the forum. You quickly became and still remain a cherished voice here and this place will be a worse place to be without you in it.

I know that veganism is a big part of who you are and what you value, but keep in mind that this isn't a food forum, it's an atheist forum. And as such is going to be full of meatheads. Pun intended. Tongue

Stick around jb. Maybe just try to avoid food topics.

This forum is full of great people, and you're one of the best. It would be a shame to lose you.

But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.
