Picture yourself as a vegan. What is it like? How do you feel? What do others think of you?

My friends and family think it's just a phase. They support me, but they think it's pretty funny anyway. Some of them try to be respectful by not eating meat around me, but others enjoy ordering veal, wearing chinchilla coats, and talking about torturing pigs in front of me.

I've had to throw out most of my shoes, purses, bedding, coats, and (if the company didn't promise really, really sincerely that they didn't test on animals) cosmetics. I can no longer use certain kinds of soap (therefore I have to carry around my own at all times), and I avoid alcohol and certain brands of toothpaste. I avoid the circus and all zoos. I've become the sort of person who asks the waiter exactly what's in the meal and what type of oil they used to make it. Most waiters think that I'm pretty annoying. I'm training my cat to be vegan as well, but for some reason she's not interested.

I feel sanctimonious.


For the record, I think "vegan cats" is stupid, inhumane, and hypocritical. Granted you could say it's hypocritical of me to say that, but at least I acknowledge that and don't try to hide behind my own self righteous bullshit.
