I’m all for shjtting on the “gluten intolerant” but people who actually went to the doctor and were diagnosed with celiac disease shouldn’t get all the hate. I hate asking for gluten free food anywhere because I know someone is going to make a comment assuming I’m one of the “gluten intolerant” cucks that make actually celiacs and myself look like assholes. Gluten is a protein, it’s not poison, my body just doesn’t process it very well and eating it regularly puts me at high risk for stomach lymphoma. Rant over.
@I am Levi, I have a friend with celiacs and he always just starts with that, “hi there, I have celiacs disease, so I was wondering what your gluten free options are?” Because 1) it stops bs opinions before they start and 2) when the server is directly informed of an allergy or condition they will always 100% make sure not to be the one to make you sick or die
@I am Levi, but it isn’t just people with celiacs. I have PCOS and my doctor recommended a gluten free diet. The problem is because I don’t have celiacs people just think that I’m being another stupid millennial pretending to have a problem. Know that it isn’t just celiacs disease that causes people to not eat gluten. Even though I’m not allergic to it, it does hurt me in another way.
@Leslie Knope 2020, while I appreciate the advice, I got to say that I’ve tried that and it only made me realize that I’m an asshole who hates explaining/pandering to people. Like I REALLY hate accommodating dickheads.
@TheMadsHatter, When you’re explaining, I’d go with not specifying what disease/syndrome you have and instead just say “my doctor did some tests and said my body can’t handle it”
@TheMadsHatter, and then kill them for not minding their own business
@I am Levi, ok cool. Well good luck complaining about it and not doing anything differently!
@I am Levi, there are quite a few people who follow a diet as a fad. However there are also quite a few people who are more susceptible to the placebo effect. And think gluten is the cause of their issues because they fall into those fads. So its always good to be sure that what you’re eating is actually the cause and it’s not just all in your head. And then there are people who were just picky eaters.
But I will say that if you tell somebody you have an allergy to something you’re far less likely to be lumped into those groups when ordering food.
@Seohn, that’s I put gluten intolerant in quotations
@I am Levi, I noticed that this lotion I bought said "gluten free" and I was like WTF so I Googled it and the first headline was about ways to get "Toxins" like gluten out of your diet... I don't want to live on this planet anymore
This is Diane Morgan who plays the character Philomena Cunk in a bunch of mockumentaries on Christmas, Shakespeare and British history. (Written by Charlie Brooker, the same guy who does Black Mirror)
The shows are essentially 10-20 minutes of TV shïtposting, it’s marvellous. Also see: A Touch of Cloth.

Her sarcasm level has given me a boner. I don’t know what to call it. Sacastiboner? Bonecasm?
