Dad Asks if He’s Wrong for Not Letting His Daughter Go Vegan

I wish I had the willpower to be vegan but I really don’t think I have it in me…

But I tip my hat to folks who can do it and do it well!

But enough about me: read on to see if you think this dad is being an a**hole for not letting his daughter go vegan.

Start now!

AITA for not letting my daughter go vegan?

“My wife and I have 8 kids between us (I know, it’s a lot. No need to comment on it). This post is mostly about our 13 year old, Gina.

Gina came to me recently and said that she wants to be vegan. I told her I’ll pay for groceries but she’ll have to plan and cook her meals, she can’t live off of frozen food or takeout, and her mom and I will be making sure that her meals are healthy before taking her grocery shopping.

She was not thrilled. She asked if we could make small changes to our diet to accommodate her, like switching to a vegan pasta and cooking the meatballs separately but we said no because we aren’t going to change our food/eating habits because she wants to be vegan.

She said okay and went to her room. Then she started sending me and my wife links to expensive pots and pans sets (one set was $800), plates, cups and bowls for $200, and her own utensils.

I asked why she was sending it to me and she said she needs new pots, pans, plates, etc. because ours are “contaminated”. I told her ours are perfectly fine and if she wants her own she can buy then with her allowance and start babysitting.

Later that day, I got a call from one of my sons saying that Gina was telling him and my other kids that they have to get all of their snacks out of the fridge in the game room (the game room has a kitchenette) because she needs it for her vegan food.

When I called and asked what she was doing she said her vegan food can’t be in the same fridge as our food and it’s not fair to make her go all the way to the garage when she’s hungry so she thought taking over the game room kitchenette would be a good compromise.

I told Gina I’m done with the vegan bulls**t and that she can’t be vegan while living in my house. She threw a temper tantrum because she thinks I’m being cruel and she’s barely spoken to me since then so I wanted to know if I was the a**hole.”
