You know what it’s like when you’ve been at a restaurant chowing down on your burger and a vegan sits in the table next to you. She starts talking loud enough so you can hear her and nothing but judgment comes out of her mouth.
She’s out to change the world one bite at a time. She has the motivation and the inspiration to turn meat eaters into vegan so all the animals can stay healthy and keep living.
The only thing is though that she can’t have her way all the time. She doesn’t understand why people won’t just listen to her and stop eating animals. They should just abandon the food they love for the common good of the earth and all its inhabitants. Of course, that’s her opinion and no one can sway her from it.
That just might be the part she doesn’t understand. Just as she can’t be told she’s wrong, she doesn’t get that people don’t like that either. They don’t feel they’re wrong. They eat meat and that’s that. Man has eaten meat for centuries. No one has ever questioned it until recently and all of a sudden it’s the evil of the world.
What if the shoe were on the other foot? What if meat eaters attacked vegans that way? Would they be happy listeners ready to comply or would they get a little annoyed that they couldn’t enjoy their weeds in peace because some meat eater kept trying to smother them with judgmental condescending speeches?
