A New York foreign-currency trader was fired after his boss learned he was vegetarian. Ryan Pacifico was mocked and endured remarks like, "You don't even eat steak, dude. At what point in time did you realize you were gay?" And his former boss would go out of his way to make him feel uncomfortable, by ordering hamburgers and sausage pizza for weekly team meetings. Mr. Pacifico, a married tri-athlete, called the situation bizarre; The New York Post reports.
How silly. Being veggie is totally badass! Batman is a vegetarian. And Iron Man drinks green shakes. Actually, sometimes guys bust my chops about not eating meat, and doing Yoga, but they back off when I punch them in the face. Just kidding, I could care less.
