a hard conversation

I was chatting with someone here in my living room. He felt the need to get details about how nasty pigs are and why eating pork is not good. I did not want to hear it but did not want to cut him off. I just got instantly sick and went straight to the bathroom to cry. I don't think that was nice.

I agree with you since I believe in the saying "If you do not have anything to say, do not say anything at all." since I would hurt someone's feelings and look like an idiot in the process.

You need to tell him when it is too much. Also pigs are very smart and naturally clean animals if given the space and chance. If offered a mud hole and a fresh clean water area to lay in. They will choose the fresh clean water. They need to do that when it is hot out as thats how they cool themselves.

He said they eat anything even body waste so that means I am eating body waste.

@sharon6345 They will eat a lot of things. But dad raised his own and I never seen them eat that. When we kept them loose in the pasture there was no smell as they pottied at the far end of it. Pot belly pigs got popular as house pets because people figured out how easy pigs are to train.

You should start putting your foot down if a conversation becomes uncomfortable.

@sharon6345 He was rude to continue knowing you were uncomfortable.

You should let your feeling be known and let them know you do not appreciate such discussions,

I don't eat pork. It's the swine, but if he saw what he was saying was agitating you he should stop saying that

@sharon6345 true. that is gross to talk about

See @sharon6345, when he made you uncomfortable prolonging the topic u didn't want to talk about, THAT WASN'T NICE . You should just have politely said that "Let's change the topic bcs I don't want to continue on this". Some people are senseless & don't understand that their views and opinions are not important alwys

Pigs are actually very clean and intelligent animals.
