I would ask her if she wants to feel how hard I could punch.

This is the second post I have seen this week on people being just HATEFUL.


WHAT IS WRONG WITH THIS WORLD?!  Ugh.  I’m curious, what did you say back to her?

WTF?  “Vegetarian” doesn’t mean “health freak”.  My ex-FSIL (she and BIL got divorced not long after Darling Husband and I got engaged) is vegetarian, but she HATES vegetables.  In other words, she survives almost entirely on cheese pizza.  Because THAT is a healthy diet.

I have known vegetarians who are rail-thin and vegetarians who are morbidly obese.

Your coworker is crazy.

Wow! What a peach she is!

Personally, I do not find vegetarian eating styles to be indiicative of health nor low wieght..

It means that she is judgmental with no personal skills.

Seriously, what a terrible thing to say.

I really dislike how hateful posters get in response to threads about “hateful people”.

No need to call the woman a bitch or any other name or talk about physical violence.

What she said was hurtful but it sounds like she didn’t realise it. It also sounds like she is fairly unimformed about a vegetarian/vegan lifestyle.

Personally I would have told her how hurtful her remarks were and maybe ask about what she knows of vegetarian diets and healthy eating in general.
