Proceed With Caution: Rant Ahead
Wednesday, March 06, 2019
Recently I posted something about not being able to change the world with your opinion, but rather by your example. It’s something I believe in, but yet I struggle with, because after converting my diet to a vegan one, many posts on the Spark app gross me out.
There. I said it. I often feel ill after seeing posts about making an entire pound of bacon for dinner, or fatty sausages on the grill. My gosh, sausage. Yes, I used to eat it long long ago back when I was oblivious to animal agriculture. But now, pork products repulse me. And yet I scroll by and say nothing. Why? My opinion is not asked, and if I have nothing nice to say, I will keep my thoughts to myself.
I wish everyone had the same respect for me. If you are disgusted by a plant-based diet ( not sure why some are offended by eating foods only grown from the earth), keep your stupid comments to yourself. It is rare that it happens, and honestly, it seems to only happen with one user that has felt it necessary to give me his unwanted opinion several times, even though I have asked him not to. And Spark does a great job removing posts that have “indirect or suggested profanity”, religion, politics, yet it has no way for a Spark member to block another. Now for my opinion. Get with the program, SparkPeople.
