Here we go again, friends!

It’s another story from Reddit’s “Am I the *******?” page that revolves around…VEGANS.

So you know it’s about to get contentious!

Was this person wrong for what they told their sister about her cooking?

Let’s see what the heck is going on here…

AITA for telling my vegan sister she can’t serve only vegan food at our family reunion?

“Every year, our family has a reunion where different members host.

This year, it’s my younger sister’s turn.

She’s been vegan for about 3 years and is quite passionate about it.

We all respect her choices and make sure there are a good variety of vegan options whenever we have family gatherings.

When she announced she’ll be hosting, she also said that the entire menu would be vegan to align with her beliefs and that it’s a chance for the family to try something different.


Some family members were excited, but others, including many of the older folks, were pretty upset and felt like they were being forced into her lifestyle, even if just for one meal.

I spoke to her privately and asked if she’d be open to including a few non-vegan dishes for those who aren’t keen on a full vegan menu.

She got quite defensive, saying this was her chance to showcase veganism and that for one meal, everyone can give it a go.

Oh, boy…

I respect her beliefs, but I also think that forcing an entire family to adopt her choices, even if just for one meal, isn’t fair.

She’s now upset with me for not being supportive and says I’m not respecting her choices.
