Food is important--we all need it to survive. Many of us have varying dietary restrictions/needs, while some of us choose our own. This is all great, except when judgments are made and privilege is not acknowledged. I'm not vegan; I'm not even vegetarian, but I also don't really identify with being a carnivore, even though I do eat meat from time to time. I try to be as conscious as I can with regard to what I put in my body. I believe we all should be aware of this. My issue, however, comes about when I hear people placing their diet on a pedestal--a "my-diet-is-better-than-yours" pedestal. It's judgmental, and it's ridiculous.
