Yep, as women our need to look attractive to everyone else is much more pressing of an issue than our health. Hey there, it’s 2013, where you been, fool?
I don’t expect people to have vegan specific things in their home anymore than I should be expect to have non-vegan things in my home for them. If I’m going out with friends, I have input and usually they are very accommodating, occasionally we end up at a steakhouse with limited options and, while a little grossed out, I eat my salad and shut up. I’m sure there are lots of people who act as though everyone should be accommodating them, but seriously? That’s not the way the world works. We choose to do this and it has nothing to do with other people.
I get angrier at other vegans for making us look bad than I do at ignorant meat eaters who just don’t get it.
There are unhealthy vegans and unhealthy meat eaters. No matter where you are on the spectrum no diet is automatically devoid of overeating and junk food. I’d like to pretend that my vegan diet is healthy, at one point I was super healthy and watched what I ate and was great, not because I was vegan, but because I took care of myself. Now I’m lazy and eat vegan junk food and often times find myself eating toast or cereal throughout the day.
Just like I’m sure there are lots of meat eaters who eat well and within reasonable limits, and I KNOW there are plenty who eat just as crappy as me.
No one is better than anyone. Everyone needs to just suck it up. :)

The article specifies that the pop tarts have to be unfrosted. The gelatin is in the icing. I’ve heard the Sara Lee suggestion before, but never really cared.
