My pet peeve!

Wondering if anyone else feels the same

One of my pet peeves, which came to mind after looking at the 'dating' post by mushroomfeilds (not having a go at you or anything hun, oh and did you know your name is spelled incorrect? lol)
anyway, it's been said on this forum multiple times, and I just don't get it.

It's when we (Vegetarians and Vegans) say "I respect their decision" when it comes to people eating meat and/or animal products.

To me, eating meat is not a decision, most of us are raised like that.
The decision is to change your life and go Veg or Vegan.

Am I not right by thinking this?

(Again, I'm not trying to offend or upset anyone that has said this before)

In my mind, you HAVE to respect their decision, otherwise you'd probably kill them.

No, not at all, I just think the term is incorrect.

I don't really understand how it can be worded any differently. It's a meat eaters decision as to what they do, although it might be wrong- we can't disrespect them because of it... As ive said many times, that's what makes people not respect vegans / vegetarians.. Because of how pushy they can be.. Thats why when I ate meat, I always told vegos to f off and said I didnt care, cos the rants were endless and so pushy.. So by respecting them, they listen. You be-little someone and they're not going to give a shit

Are you thinking of 'tolerate'?

That's what I said to my boyfriend "I don't respect the fact that you eat animals, but I tolerate it". And since he does a really great job at being pseudo-vegan, he deserves respect for that!

mm I had big issues with my bf eating meat after I had my eyes opened and showed him what I saw that caused me to go veg. I don't respect meat eating.. I think it's selfish. I hate it when they say "I know its cruel, but I just have to ignore it" or something. That isn't respectable in my eyes.

But I know I have to respect their right to choose cruelty free or cruel. So whilst I disagree, I let it go.

I think we need to accept their decission, but we in no way should need to respect it.
