Today, I was at my boyfriend's house for dinner with his family. His mom cooked up a steak dinner, except that I'm a vegan, but trying to be a good girlfriend, I forced it down. Upon his mother finding out I was a vegan, she called me "disloyal to my beliefs." FML

Yeah, if you haven't had dairy or meats for a while, it makes you super sick after you start again...& milk tastes so lumpy/gross after months of Soymilk...♥

30, if it were possible to go back in time, I would give a skinhead a box of PBR to kick your mother in her ovaries.

It's funny, people still drink that beer because it brings back memories of the first time they drank.(:

YDI. I'm vegetarian and I would never eat meat just to impress somebody. you're an idiot...

I also hope it made you sick op. Lack of animal protein causes degradation of the body's digestive abilities. Ydi for ignoring millennia of human evolution.

YDI. Either you are a vegan, in which case you shouldn't eat meat, come hell or high water. (well, ok, if a gun is in your head and you have to eat meat, you could, because it's your life or the animals, and you should chose yours) Or you actually aren't a vegan, in which case you should embrace the eating of meat- 8/10 vegetarians agree that meat is tastier than soy, and if it wasn't murder they'd eat it. So go for it. But you can't be both, and the mom was right to call you a hypocrite.

I agree with 87, dont just do somthin u don't think is rite just to impress som1 u may not c ever again!!!

soy is way tastier than meat.

ydi for being vegan. vegans are crazy i don't know how you live..

a1s where did you get that statistic? I find soy much more delicious than animal meat, and many of my meat-eating friends agree.

no they dont

At Trueblue and the rest: I can see her conundrum. She doesn't want to offend her boyfriend's mom, who has obviously put so much work into the meal, but she also doesn't want to eat meat. I honestly admire her for eating what she hates just to be polite. I agree that she should have mentioned it beforehand, but if she didn't, she did the most polite thing possible. Before the haters chime in, I'm a vegetarian, so it's not like I don't know about having a special diet.

Vegans are stupid. Skinny pieces of shit. Eat some meat.

Uh oh, now the Vegan Police are gonna come to take away your vegan powers!

Not if she hasn't had gelato yet.

I noticed in your bio instead of using "There is no excuse," you used "They're is no excuse." Meaning you need to teach yourself proper grammar rather than twelve-year-olds on FML

Maybe you need to learn what the **** sarcasm is. Then, maybe you'll see that I did that ironically to a) mock everyone else that DOESN'T know the difference, and to b) **** with internet smartasses like you that don't understand sarcasm.

112- No one likes you ******* grammar Nazis. At all. Go die. (Don't actually go die, just in a hypothetical sense).

LOL WIN COMMENT! allmidnighteyes earned the power of win!

i was thinking the same thing lol

Meh, I'd just tell them I'm vegan. fyl though.

You know.. It seems people tell vegetarians/vegans YDI for the most part on here.. In the FMLs in which vegetarian/vegan OPs stand up for their beliefs, people tell them they deserve it for not just eating the meal they were served to avoid being rude. Here OP does just that and people say she deserves it for not standing up for her beliefs. Where are the people who wanted OPs to so this when one actually does and vice versa?

one time a father his kid and there donkey went to the market,the father was on the donkey and the kid was walking,everybody said"that's a terrible father letting his young kid walk like this"the next day the kid was on the donkey and the father was walking,everybody said"that's a terrible kid letting his old father walk like this"the day after they were both on the donkey and everybody said"that's terrible of them to put so much weight on the poor donkey"the next day they went with the donkey but no one was on him,evreybody made fun of them saying "there stupid they could of sat on him" no matter what you do people won't be happy with it,

what did people say when the donkey was on the father who himself was on his kid?

icecreamdriveby 5

They should have bought another donkey then. Problem solved.

Then the vegans would've showed up and said "It's terrible that they're making the donkeys carry them. Animals are not our slaves."

how did your boyfriend not tell his mother that

You shouldn't conform for a "significant other". Chances are, one day they will cease to be in your life.

You should write a song about that, oh enlightened youth. You are Justin Beiber right?

Hahahahahah ^^^^ winnnn

Regardless of his age, he's right.

that's a very positive outlook.

That's very pessimistic... so I should just piss off all my bf's relatives then, because we will probably break up in the future?

Nah, Justin Beiber has nothing on me.

lionandthelamb61 9

No, 123, he said "conform" not "piss off". You shouldn't abandon your beliefs and lose your sense of self in order to please another, which I believe applies whether or not your with them for the rest of your life.

lionandthelamb61 9


Even though it may seem that you must always follow your vegan/vegetarian beliefs, it is also rude to force your boyfriend's relatives to go out of their way to make a completely separate meal just for you.

towboater198425 6

I don't see how this is an fml, you should put on your big girl panties and stand up for what you believe in!

haha, i agree with #7

haha I agree with #8

haha, 7, 8, and 63 are idiots.

You're whining because someone said something to you that was true. Do you honestly not see that YDI? If you were a "loyal" vegan, you wouldn't have eaten steak. It sounds to me like you wanted it but wanted to be able to blame someone else. Do you also eat eggs for breakfast because they happen to be there? Side of bacon with your veggie burger? If you're going to claim the title, live the life. That would've been mentioned to the bf's mum by any true vegetarian I know.

bamagrl410 31

Exactly. Should've just found a polite way to decline. I highly doubt the steak was the only thing they cooked, so it's not like there was nothing else. That or next time tell them in advance. If it was important enough, OP would've been sure to plan around it.

eating eggs and other things because "they're there" isn't the same thing. a lot of people would be offended by her not eating their food for a major meal like that

well.. the animal already died and was cooked for you.. no reason for it to die in vain

And those people would be arseholes. It's like expecting an orthodox jew to eat pork just because you made it. It's against their beliefs, it's nothing personal, they have no place to be offended.

134, it's not the same situation. While all (or nearly all) Orthodox Jews do not eat pork, being a vegan or vegetarian is a choice (and in my opinion, an extremely inconvenient one).

Perhaps OP wanted te eat it ande blame someone else. But it might also be that she attaches greater value to being polite and respectfull/ having a good relationship with her boyfriends mother. If being a vegan is more important and she caved to social pressure then that's weak.

#163 Are you saying that religious traditions are more important than your own morals? I'm an atheist and a vegetarian, but being a vegetarian is just as important to me as a religion would be if I believed in one. People can choose to be Jewish too, and in my opinion it's inconvenient to put faith in a higher power. But I still respect people's choices and I don't get "offended" when my friend is fasting for her religion, just like I wouldn't get offended if my friend couldn't hang out with me because she had an even going on at her church. BOTH are a matter of choice, so you can't criticize one belief and allow the other just because it's a religious belief. Vegetarianism IS the closest thing I have to a religion. It's more than just a diet for most people.

I don't know why you would fake not being vegan, if it's a long term bf that you have, his parents were bound to find out sooner or later.

They weren't. They were being polite to the host, and not complaining about the food that was served. She was being a good girlfriend.

politely declining is not the same as complaining.
