Because nobody is holier than thou...

So let's talk about meat, shall we?

I eat it. Because I can. Because I like it. Especially with BBQ sauce (insert your own racially insensitive comment here. I wrote that ESPECIALLY for you, Momo) AHEM. I am digressing.

I don't think you're an asshole because you don't eat meat. Fuck. My Dad and my evil stepmother (she's not evil at all. It's just so much fun to call her that) are hardcore vegan types. Which is cool. I try to make sure they have some grass to graze when they come over, and they try to make sure we meat eating types don't starve when we come to dinner. SEE? RESPECT. It goes both ways.*

I have a niece who has recently decided to go vegan. HARD CORE PETA type vegan. As in, "Now I look down upon you because you are a meat eater" vegan. OH. MY. GAWD, y'all. I was all...Is she gonna be one of those ASSHOLE vegans, who now is going to try to convert me, one facebook post at a time?

I think the answer to that was yes, y'all. How do you tell someone that you have no plans to give up your meat-eating ways...?

(I took out the video, because...UGH)
Also? I guess I should tell you that profile pic isn't her.

I dunno. You think she got the hint? I REALLY hope that I wasn't too subtle.

* One time the boy came home and told me he was gonna go vegetarian, and I told him YOU NEED A JOB SO YOU CAN AFFORD TO EAT THAT WAY. And then the next day, I came home from work and he was eating a plate of bacon. The quickest change of mind ever.

I got blocked from commenting on a friend FB because she posted something and I responded in similar fashion. I live with hunters. If I was anti-meat eating I'd have to find a new place to live!

I'm married to a Brasilian- vegetarianism isn't an option, lol. But totally with you on the mutual respect thing. I won't tell you what to put in your body if you don't tell me what to put in mine.

If you're ever in my neck of the woods, I'd have to show you the BBQ shack up the road from me. Pulled pork do die for and sweet potato fries! 'Nuff said!
