42. I'm sure that nastiness

comes from encounters with vegans/vegetarians who, unlike you, feel the need to proselytize their beliefs in order to make themselves feel more normal.

Most everything we do in modern life (and by that, I mean any lifestyle above the hunter-gatherer level) involves a use of resources. The land your home is on used to provide food for animals, even if they were only insects. If you want to feel guilty about the resources you use, that's your business, but I refuse to join you in that belief system.

You asked why some omnivores were the way they were about your practice, I tried to give you an honest answer.
