30 Bananas a Day!

So I'm wondering ...

What does a vegan look like?  And a more important question, what is the appropriate emotional response to being told, "You don't look like a vegan"?  I'm having a hard time naming it and can't help but feel like I've been called fat. 

Whatever, I am divine.

Who knows what they meant by it, but when in doubt go for the deflective funny.  

Something like "Why, because I'm not wearing Birkenstocks and my hair's clean?" coupled with a sly grin

"And you don't look like someone who could contribute to the torture, rape and merciless killing of animals, yet you still drink and eat their bloody putrefying flesh......but its okay, on the outside you don't seem so savage."

That would shut up anyone I know, personally. ;)

+1 haha that's brilliant :)

This is the right answer.

well said GardenGirl!!!

Amen Girl!

I am pinching that one. Hope you haven't put copyright on it.

Dont assume things...listen more and more questions...just smile and ask 'what do you mean?' Maybe they are trying to compliment you and just arent good with words.

Very appropriate I think, you shouldn't judge a book by it's cover just because others may. The person may be genuinely interested so don't assume.

Someone once said that to me, I asked why & she said because I didn't look malnourished or pale lol

actually this is the ideal connection opportunity you and BS are describing, just asking "why".  

And look how nice yours turned out!  Where'd the conversation go from there?

It went really well from there! she started telling me about all the crazy fad diets she had tried, she was on the atkins that month. She was telling me about all the scary side effects of these diets & I found the perfect opportunity to let her know about all the benefits of a "plant based" diet, I didn't want to scare her off with "you should be a vegan rhah rhah rhah". She was very receptive to my info & hopefully I influenced her in even a slightly positive & more veganish way :)
