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.
