Hell is other people.

 So, I did this interview for Jewcy magazine because one of the food editors is a vegan. And now i’m embarassed to show it to you because I let someone sucker me into replying to their small minded concepts of veganism.

I’m not into debating. It’s not my thing. I mean, it’s one thing if someone wants information because they’re interested in veganism or they’re just curious about my personal opinion. But nine times out of ten, people who enjoy debating only want to hear what you have to say so that they can systematically tear it down. Which I could handle if my brain would slow down long enough for me to type out long, thought out answers. But since it won’t, I usually just stay out of any sort of debate because I just end up getting frustrated with myself for saying anything in the first place. Also, i’m not fucking eloquent with words, okay? What I said was not meant to be an all encompassing commentary on every reason that everyone is vegan. It was an example. It’s what I think. I’m not interested for speaking for every single vegan in the world. Not to mention that it’s an article about me and what I think about food. It’s not an article on animal rights. But who gives a shit about that. Apparently by merely existing and being happy with the choices that I have made, i’m insulting people who lead different lives.

So, fuck them! Enjoy the interview.

ETA:  I’m referring to the comments section, not anything I said in the actual interview.

  • I’m insulted.

    Also, you’re awesome.

  • You should be insulted, you married me! What the hell were you thinking?

  • I thought the article was great 🙂 You should be proud…whatever with those loaded questions. Awesome!

  • mommy

    I agree with your husband (my son) – I think you’re awesome!! You did a great job!

  • How on earth could anyone find your answers insulting? It was very clear to me that these opinions were your own, and I wouldn’t have a problem with it even if you were speaking for me as a vegan. People are silly. I don’t like them most of the time.

    You, however, might be an exception.

    Ha, it’s true! Your Wilton cake pan collection is awesome!

  • sugarbeetthree

    B.A.D. is doing her best to take on the commenters.
    My two cents amount to: STFU and just try Katie’s food, bisques! It is forking good!

  • I think you did really well. Fighting like and adult with a troll is a MOST difficult task. I hate it with all of my being, but also really understand the fear of thinking someone is misjudging you. Kudos to you for standing your ground without stooping to their level!

    Also, I have not seen your Wilton cake pan collection, but I do imagine it to be wonderful.

    Last comment, eloquent or not, I love the way you write, and I imagine I’m not the only one. Good food alone doesn’t make an interesting blog.

  • I was confused when I read the article…the interview went really well! Sorry about the troubles in the comments…there’s always bound to be one.

  • John

    Katie – I think you did really well. Never mind such stupidity.

  • Arlene

    I read the Jewcy article and thought it was fine…actually really made me want the first zine…are you sold out??? I am hoping you have one extra copy left…Thanks

  • Andria

    Your 80s Wilton cake pan collection rocks my world…and ignorant losers can fork off!

  • sugarbeetthree

    By the way, in that picture, is that an open jar of peanut butter next to you with a fork on top?

  • I think you did great, even in the comments section.

    Also, slightly off-topic, I just discovered blog and it rocks. RSSed.

  • I liked the interview, I thought you were brilliant. There will always be people who’ll be insulted by the mere thought of vegans and who will troll and cause grief whenever they can. They can just fork off.

  • STT, you’re the first person to notice the peanut butter. I was getting ready to leave the house and I was starving with no food, and no clean spoons. So I ate a couple of bites of peanut butter with a fork.

  • I thought your interview was great. It shocked me that you were willing share part of yourself so openly and then some people felt the need to be harsh and critical. I really hope that you can not let them get to you.

    Looking forward to receiving your ‘zine!

  • hi katie!
    let’s see if I can finally post over here. fyi, i am way more interested in your 80s Wilton cake pan collection, than in the comments over on Jewcy. don’t let them bum you out, i feel the same way about expressing myself.
