(Wink, wink, nod, nod…)
A vegan friend bought this for her obnoxiously omnivorous husband for their anniversary, and she’s not one to preach or push her beliefs on him. She doubts he’ll read it but she will! I want to make clear that the above “obnoxiously omnivorous” characterization is not a blanket statement about all omnivores. Unfortunately, her husband consistently belittles and mocks her vegan lifestyle. His words hurt her; she’s mentioned some of his comments and I’d say they constitute verbal abuse. My only suggestion to her was to let him know he hurts her when he speaks that way. I’ll meet him this weekend when she and I participate in DC’s Walk for Farm Animals. Dog forbid he utters a negative word in my presence–oh, I’ll be polite. You can rip someone a new one in a polite manner. I find it a very satisfying experience.
