  1. Why should they make nasty comments because she decides to go vegetarian? I’ve kicked around that idea and I’d encourage her in it and ask how it’s going. It doesn’t seem like something a friend would become angry about.

  2. Hang in there! I put up with a lot when I went vegetarian, even from my family. Doing the right thing is seldom easy. I know it hurts, but their meanness is on them, not you! If you stick with it you will feel so good, physically and emotionally. You are making an excellent choice for yourself, animals and the environment. Hurrah!

  3. Don’t let the haters win, Jill. You’re doing yourself and the planet a huge favour (like I did 25 years ago). Go veg!

  4. What a great forum to educate about animal welfare, resource waste, environmental damage and human health implications while entertaining at the same time. Wonder how she’ll handle those who fancy themselves witty when “bacon” is their default answer. Looking forward to how this one plays out.

  5. The problem with vegetarians is that some of them get all “holier than thou” and mess it up for everyone else – including other vegetarians. So the response Jill is getting is scorched ground left by other vegetarians.

    The other thing I don’t get is that it seems like there’s no middle ground. If the goal is saving the planet and health, then isn’t there a middle ground were you can have meat now and then – especially if it’s to accommodate other people? I can understand if it’s about religion, but harder to sympathize with a preference.
