108. Excuse me?????
Edited on Wed Apr-13-05 09:10 AM by Bouncy Ball
Wow. Way to make a generalization. Have you met my 10 year old daughter, a vegetarian who is quite probably one of the nicest, most NON-self-righteous people I have ever known?

I guess not.

Oh and I'm a vegetarian. I have noticed that when I am forced to tell people I'm vegetarian (when they ask or it comes up in conversation, it's not something I go around telling people), they immediately respond defensively, like I just made a judgement on THEM.

It's MY decision, I don't give a shit how anyone else eats.

So I guess I could sit here and make broad generalizations about meat eaters by saying they are thin-skinned and quick to be defensive, but I won't.
