Let me start. I am a vegetarian since birth. By vegetarian I mean lacto vegetarian. I was raised as one because of religious beliefs. I started eating meat a few years ago in really small amounts. Why? Because I just wanted to try it out. I still eat it in small amounts (like one or twice a year, a small piece). I have tried only chicken so far. I can't digest anything more than that.
So I'm vegetarian for most of the part. It has nothing to with the animal cruelty. I love leather jackets ;). For me it's just for the taste and that my body can't digest a large amount of it.
I don't think anyone who eats meat is any "less" than me and I'm superior to them somehow. It's just a food choice for me.
I still don't understand why people are so tender about it?
If someone likes steak, let them. If someone likes veggies, let them. Can't we be objective about that?
Both food choices can be equally healthy if we eat properly. So why why why fuss about it?

Mostly it is because vegetarians try to shame meat eaters so often. This has caused most people to hate vegetarians. I have never met a vegetarian in that didn't eventually start to act judgmental about other people eating meat. I think this is done either as a way to convert others, or as a way of them letting others know how much better they think they are than us. Apparently we are actually super villains that are destroying the entire planet now. lol
Most vegetarians just don't have the attitude you do. Or if they do they remain so quiet about it so we never find out they are vegetarians. Just check out the attitude of this vegetarian and you will see the kind of attitude that has caused people to have an issue with them. www.girlsaskguys.com/.../q1990583-would-you-consider-going-vegetarian0
