I don't know about you, but in my personal experience, self-diagnosed Celiacs and/or those who decide that they are gluten-intolerant, are the most miserably self-righteous assholes around. They make any kind of shared dining experience its own unique kind of hell.
People have the right to feel annoyed if it is impacting them in some way, I'm simply saying that the vitriol and animosity is wildly disproportionate; the amount of derision slung toward vegetarians/vegans/gluten-free/paleo/farm-to-table/whatever is absurd, and outside of insecurity and a need to feel superior, I don't understand why anyone would care or respond beyond an eye roll (save for instances where it is directly problematic). If some crunchy motherfucker wants GMO-free pink salt for his farm-to-table raw vegan dinner, more power to him.
