Cheers Bee 🙂

Hey Bee,

Being a vegetarian is a personal choice and it really is nobody’s business what you choose to do. Imagine how strange it would be if you went around demanding to know why someone eats beef or pork?

In a perfect world, nosy people would learn to mind their own business, but I don’t think that’s going to happen anytime soon.

Below are a few things you can say if someone is giving you a hard time


Best comebacks when someone asks why you are vegetarian

1. You are what you eat, and I don’t eat corpses.

2. Probably the same reasons you don’t eat humans.

3. Oh wow, look at that. You paid a person to kill an animal that was bred and born in captivity… you’re such a fucking tough guy – not.
