About 1800 emails later... At Pinakarri, vegetarians and omnivores are happy to eat vegetarian food most of the time. We have a commitment to not to cook meat in the commonhouse, so meat dishes are prepared at private homes and served in the commonhouse which everyone is happy with. I'm one of the meat eaters and I appreciate that vegos don't won't to eat amidst the smell of cooked meat. Similarly, as a non-smoker, I don't want smoke around me, although I haven't an objection to the person smoking. What concerns me most is HOW we approach any issue of diversity. The 'versus' perspective isn't a helpful starting point, because it perpetuates an either/or/compromise attitude. There is always a solution; the issue is how to make it one that everyone is comfortable with, and build in review and evaluation. It comes from a caring for other/s, respect for self and recognising boundaries (resources, time, etc).
