How would you feel if your son or daughter became vegan?

And if you're going to come at me with this cliche line about "as long as they don't push their eating habits on me", please spare me because you would have pushed yours on them all of their life.

    • Actually I use vegan shampoos and now many vaccines are made by bacterial cultures and there are many educated vegans :)
      www.humanedecisions.com/.../...l-benefit-human.jpg
      Also the difference with vaccines are you need them to survive, that's like saying vegans are hypocrites because animals are killed by Farming. But of course if we don't eat we die while there is no nutritional need for meat. Again please try putting more critical thought in your responses -_-

  • Great, good for them.
    Better since they would be choosing a healthy lifestyle and cared about animals.

    • Well no vegan has ever forcefully pushed their eating habits on others so you don't have to worry about that.

  • I would tell him/her to never try to force your diet onto others like most vegans do. It's annoying as fuck.

    • Actually we don't force our diets on others, do you know why?
      Because we don't make any animal suffer and die for them and if you feel that your diet is something you should keep to yourself then you should do the same.

      Seriously
      Oh boo hoo these bwig bwad vegans are trying to make us poor vegans stop killing and torturing hepless animals.

      Seriously how egotistical can you get?

    • Show All
    • Actually it is 100% correct because convince ≠ force. No one (as annoying as you say they are) is forcing you to do anything. As for getting angry, well most people get very angry if dogs are being abused.

    • Let me tell you where you went wrong: just now when you assumed that chosing compassion over cruelty was "stupid"

    • That is not what is stupid about veganism.
      The stupid part about veganism is compromising your health for a futile cause.
      (while you probably use cell phones, cars, toothpastes, cosmetics, nail polishes, condoms and all the billions of other things that contain minced up animals)

    • Except meat production has gone down, so it's hardly a futile cause :)

  • I don't care what they do. Their life at the end of the day, not mines.

What Girls Said 33

  • I want to say I wouldn't care because it's their views and their values, BUT! If she/he tells me to change my eating habits I will throw them out of the house. They didn't give birth to me, I gave birth to them. My house, my rules. And even when they are grown I don't need to hear them telling me to change my eating habits because it's not going to change.

  • I seriously cannot believe anyone opted for "Ashamed"

    Allow me to give some impromptu parenting advice in the form of a rant :-)

    If your son or daughter turns out to be someone who betrays their country by giving away U. S. state secrets to say a foreign government, ISIS etc OR if your son or daughter turns out to be a pedo, then your feelings of being ashamed are well warranted. Traitors and pedos are about as shameful a thing as a person can possibly be.

    Alternatively, if your son or daughter turns out to be someone who chooses to abstain from eating animal products, who effin'' cares? It's really not that serious and besides now there's more ham and turkey for you on Christmas. The only parents who are ashamed of their kids being vegan are bad parents who never should have had kids in the first place.

I'm not vegan or vegetarian but if my child, even at a young age, wanted to be, I'd let them. So, if they chose to become vegan, as long as they don't try to convert me, I'm fine with it.

    • OK. I hope you don't force your children to be vegan now. Or will you also provide meat, not lecture them, and give them the choice of what they want to eat for every meal? Don't force them though, that would be terrible.

    • No because I wouldn't feed them meat because I despise those who force their belief on others; like people who force their beliefs that satisfying their taste buds could justify taking the life of another thinking breathing creature on a helpless animal.
