I was a vegetarian for about 6 years before going vegan, and the treatment does change a little. I still got a lot of jokes made about me as a vegetarian, but then people would generally accept it. People are much more... confused.. about veganism. I got a lot more questions than anything, but i don’t mind answering them! I think that the best way to combat the questions and/or ridicule is to educate yourself as best as you can and work on good techniques for responding. A calm, rational, well thought out response to their illogical ridicule will usually shut them up.
