You use buzzwords to try to sound smarter than you are,
I don't know how you can know how smart I am or even how you would assess my intelligence if you had the means. I suspect it would depend entirely on whether I accepted or rejected veganism and by that self-fulfilling standard I am indeed extraordinarily stupid as I not only think it absurd but can articulate why it is absurd.
You must dumb down your conversations to her level or be considered a phoney baloney to her.
I don't think it's that, she's not stupid in that way, she just has a kind of mania. I'm the most annoying because I make part of her doubt this obsession she's made so important to herself. I have to be a fraud and stupid to shut down that niggling doubt. It's the equivalent of sticking your fingers in your ears and shouting "na na na, I can't hear you"!
