“One of my hobbies is leathercraft. I have been told it’s a red flag by a vegetarian. Nearly all leather is a side product of the meat industry so my point is might as well use the whole animal.

She didn’t share that opinion, so I never brought it up and she’s the only friend who doesn’t get leather goods as gifts. I refuse to sell anything I make, so I just give it all away.”
