Vegans can get a bad rep. They’re stereotyped as pushy haters criticizing everyone who dares to eat chicken breast. In reality, most vegans are not jumping down everyone’s throats. Their lifestyle is a lot more replicable than you’d think. I’ve been a meat eater my whole life, and even I could eat predominantly vegan and vegetarian when I had two vegetarian roommates.
The following story is not one of the vicious vegetarian and the righteous meat eater but a more complex tale of miscommunication. A meat eater got invited to a dinner party at a vegan home. At the party, the hosts are only serving portobello steaks and no actual steaks. The meat eater is allergic to mushrooms, so he thought bringing his own meat to the BBQ would be a possible alternative to having a life-threatening allergic reaction. He asked Reddit what he should do, and the people of AITA’s advice is surprisingly grounded.
