What weird, stupid, annoying, ignorant or sad thing have you heard, talked about or seen about veganism today?

Yesterday I was at this café in Sweden called Wayne's Coffee and I asked it they had anything that was vegan. She had no idea what being vegan was but well, she tried... She offered me gluten free and other weird stuff that doesn't have anything with veganism to do. She thought it was really weird that I didn't want some nutbar thingy that didn't even have a list of ingredients... Looser

Today I read the Swedish magazine "Mitt kök" where they have "this month's vego". In the recipes I found these ingredients:
cheese
eggs
sour cream
butter

The magazine also have an article about the Swedish chef Tareq Taylor, where he says "the chicken is so anonymous that even some vegans eat it".

I told a person who works with diet plans and weight loss that I'm vegan and she asked me stuff like "do you eat chicken? Or fish?" Sad

Good God! They would need to employ people who knows a thing or two about vegetarianism and veganims, including the difference between milk protein allergy and gluten intolerance...Smug

You know speciesism and hypocrisy? Yesterday I saw a detective story on TV and a dog almost got killed by a bomb and my not-vegan father was like "Oh, I really care about the dog, I hope it will be alright" and I just "You care about the dog?" with sceptical voice as I always to when a non-vegan says they feel sorry for an animal, and he answered yes and I got so frustrated, why does he not care about the pigs and cows and fishes and other animals he is eating?

#11 I feel you. It's even worse when people see stuff like rodeos and say they feel sorry for the bull and then they take a big bite of their meatburger...

#12 Or like my cousin last summer: Some animal was almost hit by a car, and she was like "How great they survived" and then she came home and ate pig. And when people feel sorry about animal abuse and just like "and now I am going to eat the dead body of an animal and drink milk that is made for cows because of course I am a calf". (Sorry for my irritation, I just do not have any vegan IRL-friends to share these thoughts with.)

And people who feel sorry for animal abuse and then are like "I am going to eat the body of a dead animal and drink milk from a cow - because I'm obviously a calf - and I consider myself an animal lover". (Sorry for my irritation, I just do not have any vegan IRL-friends to share these thoughts with.)

Yeah, so you can save your voice instead of answering the same questions over and over again.

Hehe yeah. Yesterday I was at a restaurant and I asked if a dish had milk in it and they said no. I also said 'm vegan. Then, LUCKILY, I asked if it was butter in it and of course it was... Looser
