Everything gluten free girls are tired of hearing

‘I tried it being gluten free once, it sucked’

Whether you’re celiac or gluten intolerant, you’ve faced your fair share of skepticism.  For whatever reason, the moment the words “I don’t eat gluten” come out of your mouth, the responses range from an eyebrow raise, sheer disbelief or in some cases, unadulterated sympathy.

What immediately follows is a patient explanation of how you are still – somehow – living a life without gluten and an explanation on the “who, what, how.”

It’s annoying, it’s repetitive and we’re all bored of hearing…

10. “But would gluten kill you?”

11. “What would happen if you ate toast?”

12. “You are so fucking annoying to get takeout with.”

14. “Sorry, I forgot to use gluten free bread but you’ll be fine, right?”

15. “So it just makes you tired? But I’m always tired.”

20. “Stop being ridiculous, of course we can use the same butter knife.”

21. “Isn’t celiac a type of vegetable?”

22. “Were you gluten free when you were a baby?”

23. “Do you even know what gluten is?

24. “Who said you can’t eat gluten?”

25. “You know you can’t actually be allergic to gluten, I read an article about it.”

27. “I love cookies too much to be gluten free.”

28. “Are you just another girl jumping on the bandwagon?”
