A Vegetarian Battle

While reading through my daily news I found this article that told a story of a woman who struggles with vegetarianism.   When she first went to college she used vegetarianism as a way to cover up her eating disorder.   This is an unfortunate reality for some so called “vegetarians” that perpetuate a stereotype that vegetarians are sickly and frail.

After college she struggles to not become a “weirdo” vegetarian that no-one likes to have over for dinner, and everyone talks about.  In the end she struggles with her humanity and her conflict around the moral issue of eating animals.

I think many on again - off again (and consistent) vegetarians have these or similar struggles.   This article really does a good job bringing them to light.

Wow. What an interesting and honest commentary. I think that her struggles are very interesting and not dissimilar to some I have grappled with and some I currently do. Thanks for finding and posting this Eric.

I thought the article touched on a lot of issues vegetarians and wannabe vegetarians deal with…I’m glad you found it interesting. :)
