What is it that makes meat eaters so GD defensive? I recently posted this message -- http://boards.fool.com/Message.asp?mid=24104550 -- in response to a question on how we lost weight, stating that I lost weight when I stopped eating red meat. I wasn't advocating vegetarianism. I made it clear that I wasn't a vegetarian at the time, I was merely mentioning it in response to her question. I then get a response to my post -- http://boards.fool.com/Message.asp?mid=24107178 -- stating how to portion meat in a restaurant. There wasn't anything outright nasty about it, but there was a tone to it which I read as preachy and defensive.What is it about meat eaters that make them so defensive? I don't ever preach vegetarianism. Both my mom and my brother eat meat -- mostly chicken and fish, but meat none-the-less. Most of my dad's side of the family are "meat and potatoes" guys. I don't ever try to 'convert' them, or anyone else.I don't get it. I simply don't get what makes some people so defensive about it.Caat
