Back when I was a vegetarian and a vegan, I was never interested in wearing those shirts that said things like "Meat is murder" or "I love tofu" or using bumper stickers, key chains, bracelets, or any of that type of junk that advertised my diet...just not for me. I never was into pushing anything on anyone else, and I still feel the same way.
However, I do see some cool Paleo t-shirts and things of that nature, which seem to be WAY less biting than the vegan agenda ones that just make other people feel bad and guilty for eating meat. (Now hear me out, I don't think ALL vegan philosophies are overly extreme, for example, I too would want to avoid the going to the circus and avoid buying meat from factory farms which can be places of animal cruelty).
So my question -- do you advertise that you are Paleo? Do you start the conversation with family/friends, or keep it more toned down until you're asked about your diet and lifestyle? Do you keep it to yourself mostly? Or are you are you more interested in wearing the t-shirts, starting a conversation, and talking to people about what you do because it expresses a part of who you are?
I'd love to hear your stories and responses. Thanks!
