Pro choice, not pro herd!
It seems i am a huge freak because i chose NOT to eat meat.
In a room with 500 people i am the only vegetarian, and i am ridiculed and picked on because i am different then they are.
I always thought that what you eat only matters to you and to your body and heath, not the people around you, it seems i was ever so wrong.
It's weird because usually there are 2 types of people-those who want to understand and those who do not want to understand, yet among those 500 where only the ones who do now want to understand...why is it such a big deal? Since when does it matter to others what i eat and what i don't eat...
It's more than this, it seems to me that every little aspect of our lives as to be similar with that of the society we have to live in. If you are a teenager and you have a kid-huge problem, if you are 50 and never was married, you are a freak. Does no one stop and wonder maybe that teenager chose to have a baby and maybe that 50 old person chose to be single for the rest of their lives. Why is it so hard for others to accept differences?
And i thought it was hard for people to accept homosexuals and other religions, why wouldn't be hard when they can't even accept little differences like what you eat...
Is is so awful to be different? Is is so wrong to make a choice and not follow others? Since when not being part of the herd is being against it?
And most importantly why to others care so much about how you chose to live your life, why does it bother them so much that they can't sleep well at night?
I for one embrace choices and differences and i am extremely happy for those who chose to be outcasts and happy, rather to be part of the herd and miserable!
