“‘What is wrong with you?’ (When you trigger my overprotective sensors or smth that makes me react badly.)

“‘Why do you have to be so sensitive?’ (I don’t believe that it’s my fault … )

“‘Why are you so quiet?’ (idk, but when I’m not, please don’t ignore/talk over/interrupt me.)

“‘I can’t be friends with you because you eat pineapple on pizza/do smth crazy.’ (Bro, you can’t do that irl as not jokingly; what kind of AH are you? I’d be fine if you actually find smth real as crazy, not an unpopular opinion that won’t hurt you—except support of SA, Abuse, Pedos or similar stuff).

“‘You’re weird.’ (WHO BUILT ME like that? I NEVER ASKED FOR DIS– except for disgusting/creepy stuff.)

I don’t know why or if it has to do with anything, but it’s so weird when they crack jokes like ‘Shut up or you’ll have to eat vegan schnitzel,’ ‘Starting off tomorrow you’ll have to become vegan,’ and then they expect me to say something like ‘Noooo!’

“I’m not scared of meat alternatives; I’ve had vegetarian meat before and they actually taste well; my family, however, who have never tried vegan meat ever, have constant rants about how disgusting vega(n) meat is. I basically eat everything in this house with the exception of a few vegetables, yet I’m still the ‘picky one.'”
