11 Things Every Vegetarian In The Veggie Squad Always Hears, As Told By 'Grey's Anatomy'

My fellow vegetarians of the world, the struggle is oh so very real.

Twitter - Grey's Anatomy

If you're vegetarian, there are some things that you've probably heard. Multiple times. Often unsolicited or unasked for. The struggle of being vegetarian is so very real, and who better to put it into GIF form than the very unreal show, "Grey's Anatomy?"

1. Do you drink milk?

Is milk.... meat? That should answer the question.

2. I don't know how you do it. I could never be vegetarian.

That's funny. Good for you, man. I never how how to respond to this... Congrats?

3. Would you eat meat for a million dollars?

Tell you what: I'll eat some chicken, take your million dollars, and donate them to an animal shelter. There's my answer. Happy?

4. If you were on a deserted island, and you had to eat meat to survive, would you do it?

Again with the hypotheticals. Why is everybody so obsessed with deserted islands?

5. How do you live without chicken? Without steak? Without bacon?

Same as you my friend, just with less cholesterol. And more tofu.

6. Do you mind if I eat this in front of you?

It's sweet that you care, but it doesn't matter to me. I'm not going to combust at the sight of a chicken cutlet. I've seen them before (shocking, I know).

7. Do you miss it?

Let's get deep for a second. You can miss something without needing it in your life. Or, the less deep answer: sometimes, but never enough to go back.

8. Do you like, just eat fruits and vegetables?

There's pizza! And cake! And chocolate! And so much more! I promise being vegetarian is a lot more colorful than you think.

9. Do you eat fish?

Fish are animals. You're thinking about pescatarians.

10. I'm basically a vegetarian. I haven't eaten meat all week.

Listen, dude, I'm happy for you, but not the same thing. This, my friend, is a lifestyle.

11. There's meat on the food? Just pick it out.

Just pick it off? What a lovely solution. On second thought, I'll just drink my water.

Is Meaningful Casual Sex A Paradox?

Why noncommittal sex is more complicated than we'd like to think.


I lost my virginity to a graduate student from Los Angeles. We’d met at a rundown cafe whose Yelp page complained of an alleged rat infestation. His name was Ken and he was 25. What drew me to him was the peculiar way his mouth was perpetually fixed into a sideways, half-moon shape that was like a smirk but without any trace of smugness. But the two most striking parts of Ken by far were the dinner plate roundness of his face and his small, expressionless teddy bear eyes. Of the things that mattered to him, there was his best friend, a college dropout who sold computer parts in Toronto, and sex.

My Astral Life

I'm the first to admit that I am one of THOSE people who uses their zodiac sign as a description of themselves.

The Blessing of Lacking Sex Appeal

To all the fellow non "it" girls out there


Lacking sex appeal is not a desirable thing. It makes you fee not ugly, but wrong. Not having charisma is not a life goal. It doesn't make you fee friendless, but isolated. Not being the "it" girl happens, and tonight (and every nigh prior to this)

Confessions From the Single Friend of the Group

It is truly the worst place to be

Confessions From the Single Friend of the Group

Look. If you are anything like me, complaining about being single is such a hard thing to because you are genuinely happy for your friends, but as they continue to be happy in their relationships, the ever crushing weight of being the single friends can become overwhelming. For context, my primary friend group consists of four people. We are all roommates and it is a great time here. All three of my roommates have boyfriends/girlfriends, which makes our friend group of four quickly jump to seven, and it is wonderful! I love my roommates so much and I love their S.O's, but no matter how much I love them I always get extremely jealous and sad. The sad thing is that the only part that ever truly ends up bugging me is that since I am single, they are my go-to top priorities and it has been really hard to watch myself slip from the top of their go-to's to not being their go to when they feel the weight of the world. What makes it harder is that expressing that I feel alone and unwanted makes me sound jealous and like I don't want my friends to hangout with their people. I get it. I do. But there are just days I want to be someone's first pick and I'm not.
