17. Doubtful. In any case, dietary choices are individual.

The only time I pay attention to people's dietary limitations is when I'm planning a dinner party. If I don't know, I ask people if they have any dietary limitations in advance, and plan my menu accordingly. I am less likely, however, to invite an individual vegan if he or she will be the only vegan in the group. Instead, I would invite that vegan when there were others in the dinner party. In that case, I would prepare a vegan meal, since everyone can eat everything on the table that way.

My only fixed rule is that I do not prepare any foods that pretend to be other foods. I have never seen the point of that, frankly.

Most restaurants, these days, offer vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free menu items, along with other items that are not restricted in that way. That makes good sense, and ensures that everyone can find something on the menu they can eat.
