Letter: Vegetarian bullies

The Independent Online
Sir: Susan Elkin ('Glad to be veggie, and healthy too', 28 June) declares that the present political and social climate claims to be supportive of personal choice. But why is it that one is expected to go to extraordinary lengths to accommodate the 'personal choice' of a vegetarian guest when I have yet to meet a vegetarian who extends the same courtesy to his or her meat- eating guests?

It is this 'holier-than-thou' intolerant attitude by vegetarians that makes many people like myself, who quietly respect personal choice, bristle when constantly lectured about their 'unsocial' behaviour in being meat-eaters.

Yours faithfully,
