Subject: Husband got so mad about me being a vegan
Date: June 23, 2009 at 2:28 pm PST

This is my first time on this board, I don't really know how it will work. But I guess I just need to vent. I decided to become a vegetarian for sure last week, and then yesterday after a lot of research I decided to commit to being vegan. My husband got so mad at me. I guess he was fine with being a vegetarian but he sees veganism as extreme. But I am doing it for my health and the things I learned about how the animals are treated is what is making this diet easy to do. When I was pregnant I had gestational diabetes, and I'm only 27. The doctors were really concerned that I will have major issues in the future. So I think being a vegan will help me. But he threw all these things at me saying that I can't be a vegan because I'm catholic and a republican...what the heck?!?! I can't believe that he thinks because of my religon and political views that I don't have compassion for animals! And he's "worried" that our son will want to be a vegan. Like that's a bad thing? I was so mad I couldn't stop crying! It took me so off guard because he's not normally like this. I knew he wouldn't do the diet but I didn't think he would be so angry about it. So, I just wanted to vent and get this off my chest because I really don't know anyone that is a vegan or vegetarian that can relate.
