Dear Happy Couple,

I'm sorry I cannot attend your wedding. Please accept this beef jerky with my wishes for a joyous, if short, marriage.

Sincerely,
Devolving J. Spud, Esq.
Proud Carnivore

The sulky bride-to-be further defended her choice. "I have tried to educate these people for more than 2 years with no result so I'm not putting up with it at my wedding."

Now, THAT is a stereotypical vegan!

Let me see if I can translate a bit here.

"They have consistently attacked me and my partner just for being vegan,"

'They've complained about our constant sanctimonious attitude towards being vegan'

"When I broke the news to them, all I got was attacked because I don't want the weight of having people that still kill animals (the very beings we are trying to protect) at my wedding on my conscience."

'They were upset when I called them murderers.'

"I have tried to educate these people for more than 2 years with no result so I'm not putting up with it at my wedding."

'I am a huge pain in the arse to my family.'

"I'm sorry if that makes me 'rude' or a 'b**ch' because I'm not compromising the ethics that I share with everyone here."

'I'm not sorry.'

Pff.  Nobody wants to go to your wedding anyway, princess.  There won't even be any good food at the reception, so what's the point?  Have fun getting married to your eggplant... alone.
 
2019-01-26 05:57:53 AM  
Yet you still use the internet which hosts pictures of animals WITHOUT THEIR CONSENT and was INVENTED BY MURDERERS.

I'm only surprised the source isn't the Daily Mail.

This is definitely not a made up story to drive clicks.
 
2019-01-26 06:00:28 AM  
Yikes. I've never killed anyone and taken meat from them. They usually only had black bread because they were poor peasants.

She should do some deep knee bends in a asparagus patch.
 
2019-01-26 06:06:40 AM  
it's odd.  normally, a story about a woman i dont know not inviting people i dont know to her wedding piques my interest....

...but for some reason this story doesn't for that with me.  i'm aggressively ambivalent.

I'm w/the ones who'll attend but I'm still going to go to 's nice steak & taters joint for some Prime rib. Oh and a side salad too, while you're at it skip the over cooked veggies too.
Full fat Ice cream for dessert.
Thank you very much

It's her wedding. Can't she just invite who she wants?  For any reason.

This is stupid . Vegans are stupid.  But this is stupid attention whoring.
 
2019-01-26 06:18:21 AM  
Wow the groom sounds like he must be a deaf saint to put up with that or just as worse as her.

That's not entirely true.  One of my better friends is a vegan guy I first met at work ages ago, but he's not preachy about it, and he's otherwise entertaining, so when we meet for dinner or w/e I care enough to only propose places with vegan dishes.  It helps that I love Mediterranean food and will accept any excuse to go to a falafel/hummus place.

That's how it's supposed to work.  One statement of "I don't eat meat" should be enough between friends and family and then everyone compromises.  If I forget, feel free to remind me.  Otherwise I don't want to hear about your psychological eating disorder.

No it's not "her" wedding, it's "their" wedding.  And this is not 'Nam dude, there are rules.  Your spouse's immediate family are automatically invited.  I don't care if they're carnivores, or Trumpers, or whatever.  If they start any shiat, like smuggling in some sausage and then eating it during the ceremony, or whipping out their MAGA hats for the vows, then feel free to eject them.  You made the effort to include them and they abused that good will.
 
2019-01-26 06:29:46 AM  
Has anyone, ever, actually wanted to go to a wedding?

Sounds like she's giving her relatives an out.

He might be a major protein sauce source for her. She might need daily serves.

I get the feeling this was a preemptive "well these guys aren't coming to my wedding anyway" sort of move? I can't imagine this bride just started being insufferable before this action.

Gordon Bennett: "They have consistently attacked me and my partner just for being vegan,"


You alrready know that when someone uses the word "partner" when describing their boyfriend/girlfriend or husband/wife in a non-generic context that they're going to be a sanctimonious asshole.
 
2019-01-26 06:50:51 AM  
She bears a heavy load of guilt for all the insects and herbivores killed to prevent them feasting on the crops she craves.

Just like I don't actually go out and kill my own dinner, I pay someone else to take care of that part. She pays someone else to kill the critters that would like to eat her food before it's even harvested.
 
2019-01-26 06:53:09 AM  
Heaven forbid there's a single thread of silk in her gown. And cotton? Now THERE'S a fabric that's friendly to animals. Linen? ditto. Synthetics? hmmm I see a pattern here.

Maybe she'll be one of those "nude brides".
 
2019-01-26 06:53:13 AM  
Okay. It's her wedding. I can think of far worse ways to weed out your guest list.

But what if my asshole truly IS morally superior?  Surely it's not sanctimony if it's undeniably true...

It's her wedding she can do what she wants. Why does anyone other than her family give a shiat?

MagSeven: In my experience no one who is not vegan cares if you are vegan.


I went vegan several years ago and my family and friends have been great with it. They try to go to vegan joints for food (because they aren't scared of eating plants) but if they aren't available they try to find places with something for me to eat. Not to mention most have been cutting back on meat, though blame our middle class live-near-people lifestyles.

If someone you care about is vegan you do your best to help them. Anything otherwise is you being awful to someone you care about. If someone eats meat you try to feed them well, if someone doesn't do the same.

At the same time it's not always possible. Vegans should know to potentially eat before they go out to a restaurant or to a dinner.

It's really easy to not be an asshole one way or another.
 
2019-01-26 06:59:39 AM  
The vast majority of vegans to the point of the ratio being essentially 1:1 are idiots, this one included.

However, weddings are your own personal event and you can invite or ban anybody you want.  Most probably this is a cover story type of thing to keep some specific relatives out of the proceedings, but even if it isn't... who cares?  If you can't safely express the ways in which you're a farking moron at your own wedding, something has gone much wronger with the world than you just not being a contributing member of society.

As bride, that's pretty much her right.  Could cause problems downthe road tho.

At least her husband won't be so surprised when, like most women, she eventually bans meat in the bedroom too.
 
2019-01-26 07:01:20 AM  
Women are slightly crazy anyway. Women with upcoming weddings are just plain crazy. And vegans are not all that stable as a rule.
Put 'em together and you have the Titanic, on fire, steering towards an ice flow with the Skipper and the lookouts doing tequila shots while Leatherface is taking a chainsaw to the lifeboats.

No, humans can consent to having parts of them eaten. It's the perfect exercise of her moral choice.

"See? My partner consented to me consuming his precious bodily fluids. It's OK when there's consent"

It might be cultural differences.  I was in Spain this week for a meeting, and one of the more senior people there used "partner" to refer to the person his subordinate is engaged to.  I couldn't figure out if that was the convention for Spaniards speaking English, for privacy, or just not knowing the words "fiance"/"fiancee".
 
2019-01-26 07:24:50 AM  
She can invite anyone she wants but she  can't expect that no one is allowed to have an opinion about it. Especially family.

DNRTFA about vegans.
 
2019-01-26 07:27:42 AM  
If I got invited to a wedding reception where there's no meat I'd say, "Yo, goober!  Where's the Meat?"

Listen here.  I've git a large family.  We drink like a large Irish family is rumored to drink.  We eat like one too.

Weddings can be expensive as shiat, especially if you're considering one of those "traditional" ones, which isn't true, but whatever.  You're looking at a massive venue, with multiple open bars, etc.

If we had decided to trim the guest list, things get ugly.  This bride has her shiat together.  She's not trimming the guest list to avoid paying for your second cousin and his toothless girlfriend to get an overpriced meal. Nope.  She's being "the crazy vegetarian" and gets off as crazy, not cheap.

It isn't a bad trade.  My wife and I faced similar financial challenges, so we solved it our own way.   Instead, we eloped to Vegas, and called everyone once it was done.  My mother is still annoyed about not getting her dance (it has been over a decade) but all in all, it was worth skipping the gifts and parties.
