This is his [B]friends[/B]. Friends are fucking important and bring happiness into your life. I can't see any situation where I'd blow off friends just because they eat differently or have other viewpoints than myself. Don't you people value friendships?

Vegetarians get judged as much as paleo's. Just look at most of the replies in this thread. Not everything is about being the healthiest human possible. And discarding other people because they don't think the same is silly.

Friends and family are more Important than anything you put in your mouth, I agree. And part of that is wanting the best for their health.
with my veggie and vegan friends I just stressed I have given up all grains and processed foods for my health and that if I didn't eat meat etc Id be a nutritional mess. The discussions we had weren't heated, I talked about organic,grass fed healthy animals and they understood where I was coming from.
I have more veggie friends than vegan as vegans can be very intolerant, opinionated, self righteous and aggressive and I don't like that personality type much. Passion though I do understand so I respect the vegan friends I have and we have a fun ongoing argument that if everyone was vegan millions of animals would die!.
Don't forget too that some of these people find their lifestyle choice very hard and they aren't avoiding eating meat because they don't enjoy it but for ethical or moral reasons. this group often don't want meat eaten around them because it makes it harder to abstain.
not all veggies/vegans are rabid in their attitude and opinion and discussion can be really interesting.
Just don't get dragged into being intolerant, opinionated, self righteous and aggressive yourself ;)
