We all know *that* person who swears by a vegan diet and thinks everyone else should, too. Sure, we’re used to them always talking about the way they eat, and trying to push it on us, but does it ever go a little bit too far? Maybe. At least, that appears to be the case with one vegan bride.
An anonymous vegan bride-to-be recently took to Reddit to share her decision not to invite guests to her wedding who aren’t vegan, complaining that she’s being “guilt-tripped” into inviting some “omnivores” to her “fully vegan wedding.”
Okay...but then she explains who the troublesome meat-eaters are. “Just for some context," she adds. "Some family members were told they are not invited to my wedding because we don't want to host murderers at our wedding which is supposed to be one of the happiest days of our lives.” But if she was expecting to get support for her decision she was out of luck. In fact, even fellow vegans came down on her for being unreasonable.
- “You can still invite non-vegans if you're having a vegan wedding. If they are not eating meat there, what difference does it make?” one person commented. “Does she refuse to ever see them because they are murderers? If not, why pick her wedding day to be the day she 'refuses to host murderers.'"
- Another added, “Silly vegan. Being an omnivore doesn't make one unable to eat vegan food. That attitude tho [sic] would keep me from attending,” while another noted, “They can go the day without meat or dairy products. And most of them would be happy to do so, if you just didn't call them murderers.”
- Or, as another commenter pointed out: “'Unless they are planning on showing up with bucket-loads of KFC, this person is…crazy.”
