Anonymous said: I've been a vegetarian for roughly a decade now, and I've been poor and hungry to the point where something off the dollar menu at McDonald's would be all I could afford. You know what though? I never once strayed from my dietary choices Vegetarianism and veganism are more than a diet. They're a lifestyle, and something to be proud of. Making light hearted jokes about vegetarians feeling some sort of obligation to return to and omnivorous diet is hurtful and offensive.
