I can totally relate, I grew up in a culture and family where meat is part of the culture. It isn't uncommon to see animals slaughtered or even cooked whole for special events. Also, every part of the animal is eaten. I also had neighbors who would raise their own animals at slaughter them at home and also use them for eggs. (My family wasn't too fond of that practice, they prefer to grow fruits and vegetables)

I don't know any other vegetarians in my family and I don't remember any growing up although they might've been there. When I gave up meat, my parents grumbled but they already think I'm weird. When I said I had given up eggs and cheese, they really couldn't grasp that. So yeah, I'm the weird one
