I have been vegetarian in different ways in my life, and I always hated it when it was pretty much forced on me to eat a poor dead creature!
Has it ever happened with you too?
Forced? I've never been forced to eat anything I didn't want to and I've never known anyone who would force food on someone... well, except my grandmother. When I had surgery they told me (in front of my grandmother and partner!) not to eat unless I really couldn't help it and in that case to stick with easy things like cookies or crackers. Well, my lovely grandmother stops at her house to cook salmon (ick!) and a load of other stuff while she was supposed to be going to pick up my prescription. There I was at home and in pain. She FINALLY showed up 2 hours after I was supposed to have taken my pain meds and made me eat salmon! LOL. She thought I'd die after surgery if I didn't eat til' I was about to bust. Ha Ha.
Anyways, I would not be forced to do/eat anything if I didn't want to. I'd wait until I could get something else to eat. I've done it before, but not because I wouldn't eat meat. I don't eat a whole lot of meat, only cheeseburgers, occasionally chicken and bacon. Oh yea, ham too!
I used to have to sit at the table for hours when I'd refuse to eat meat (I'm a vegetarian now but even refused to eat it as a young child) but my parents loooong gave up on that. I proved too stubborn!
