    Veggie and Vegan Rant 12th Jul 19 at 8:39 AM
    why the double standards ?

    Its a lifestyle choice, its YOUR lifestyle choice - not mine

    Scenario 1:

    a) You invite one round for a meal, they EXPECT you to have produced a suitable meal option for them - cause you knew they were veggie/vegan....right

    b) You go to theirs for a meal ---meat option --- urm nope, no way - you do realise we/I am veggie/vegan

    DOUBLE STANDARDS

    Scenario 2:

    You produce,name and display your veggie/vegan food in a manner that is designed to "trick" meat eaters into buying your product.

    a) sausage
    /ˈsɒsɪdʒ/

    noun
    noun: sausage; plural noun: sausages
    1.
    an item of food in the form of a cylindrical length of minced pork or other meat encased in a skin, typically sold raw to be grilled or fried before eating.

    b) burger
    /ˈbəːɡə/

    noun
    noun: burger; plural noun: burgers
    a flat round cake of minced beef that is fried or grilled and typically served in a bread roll; a hamburger.

    Use you own names and styles - If you dislike meat/animal products - why on earth would you mimic the appearance and use the same names !!

    DOUBLE STANDARDS


    Scenario 3:

    a) a veggie/vegan offers a snack or food item to a meat eater who then comments "that was quite nice". Bring on the smug "ooo you know that was vegan right" reply (or similar)

    b) a meat eater offers a snack or food item to a veggie/vegan who then comments "that was quite nice" - to which the meat eater replies "you realise that was baby cow/lamb etc etc that you just ate" -- I bet the response isnt the same !!

    DOUBLE STANDARDS

    Rant over...thanks

    I have 3 friends who a vegan and two of them have Pernicious Anemia which I believe is caused by a lack of vitamin B12. They have injections every few months. I've often wondered where the B12 for the injections comes from.

    I know 2 people who have been eating meat their whole life who have it.

    It's the inability for your body to absorb or process B12 via the stomach no matter how much you eat or drink.

    Pernicious anaemia isn't diet related.
