I don’t know whether I’m naïve or too good at surrounding myself with people who think like me, but strongly negative responses to my back-to-nature lifestyle have caught me completely by surprise. One topic that has recently raised particular contempt has been Ian and my decision to raise meat rabbits.
When we first got our rabbits a few weeks ago I giddily wrote a quick Facebook post and shared it in a few homesteading/simple living groups. The response back to me was very tepid. This was right around the time Facebook introduced the “emotional spectrum of likes”, and suffice it to say my status got a lot of the faces filled with tears and boiling rage.
