Meat is gross xP I can't eat it because all I can think about when I do is that I'm eating a dead animal and that's gross.
Bacon isn't that good in my opinion. I just don't see what it is so good. Now before everyone goes crazy about this it's my opinion and I am allowed to express it without being ripped apart by people who are a little crazy and go overboard with the whole loving bacon thing. Why are you people dissing this persons choice? They don't want to eat meat that is there choice. Just like it is your choice to eat meat. Who cares if they are vegan? Good for them to be able to stick with it with all the veganist around.
13 fruits and vegetables did not have a brain stem or nervous system. Not the same thing people.
Pleasestaychill made my point exactly. Obnoxious one who thinks its his way or the highway. Boohoo someone has a different opinion as me, I must shun them. People seem very rude to other people's opinions or thoughts. Half the time they won't accept them. It's 2012. People can choose to be many things or say many things. Including online.
I dunno, i was watching a show about dinner parties and there was only one vegan out of the 5 people and she just starts crying and ranting about "I just think of the slaughter poor animals go through, and their innocent and I love them" and so on and so on. To me that is just as wrong and annoying as any meat eater shoving a burger in their face. When vegans do that they are deliberately trying to guilt you about the food you are eating. So basically if you back off and don't guilt trip me, you won't get a burger in your face. Ain't no thinng but a chicken wiiiing!
Every time there is a vegetarian or vegan related post the FML community had to have this stupid debate. 1) it is not hard to go without eating meat, try it for a year and see for yourself 2) there are copious reasons to stop eating meat including not liking the taste, health concerns (not just food allergies, but also for avoiding animal fat, growth hormones, and antibiotics), concern for the environment, animal cruelty (different from not wanting to eat any meat, just not meat from animals that were abused from factory farm conditions), and just a dislike of the thought of eating animals. The "we were meant to eat meat, so you should eat meat" argument is not only ignorant, but also stupid. Not all vegetarians oppose the idea of eating meat, but the process in which we go about eating meat. And just because humans are omnivores does not mean that a meat free diet is in any way unhealthy, and people have the right to choose what they want to eat.
38, the reason you don't see vegetarians or vegans shoving vegetables or fruits in meat eater's faces is quite simple. Most meat eaters eat vegetables or fruits as well as meats. All they're going to say is thanks for the salad, now where's my steak? What would be the point of that?
I can't speak for all vegetarians, but I have never been pushy or insistent about my ideas about eating meat. If you have had this experience, please realize that this is not representative of all vegetarians so please do not generalize. Just like not all meat eaters are rude and insistent towards vegetarians, not all vegetarians act that way towards meat eaters.
Yes. Because invading countries and killing, torturing, burning, evacuating PEOPLE is much more "humanity"-friendly than killing animals for food. I know everyone on earth is brain washed in a way or another, but this way of thinking just makes me feel sick. Really sick.
TheMathMajor: Thank God, SOMEBODY gets it. The amount of ignorance in this thread is disgusting. I'm a meat lover, advocate for bacon and all that shit, but I'm not going to be a condescending prick to anyone who decides to become a vegetarian. They have the right to an opinion, and to make decisions based upon that opinion. Anyone who says otherwise is an ignorant fucktard, and the same goes for vegans/vegetarians who condemn meat-eaters. End of story. 85-Yes, because ALL vegans and vegetarians are also terrorists. Fucking idiot.
I find it really ironic that people always accuse vegetarians of being "preachy" about their beliefs.
For every intervention meat-eaters foist on vegans/vegetarians about ten people have been attacked by the anti-meat-eaters for enjoying meat. They are a ridiculously vocal minority. Most meat-eaters are of the opinion "More meat for me! Just shut up about the lectures; I don't give a shit." Most vegetarians/vegans I've met are of the opinion "You're an evil animal abuser and you're gonna die of heart disease!"
18- I think you're talking about the 'extremist' vegetarians. I'm a vegetarian but I've never actually met a vegetarian who thinks "all meat eaters are evil animal abusers" Most vegetarians don't go around giving people shit for eating meat, as it's their choice, just like it is someone's choice to be vegan or vegetarian. There are some 'extreme' vegetarians, and much of the time, they're the ones that come up with the propaganda, which leads to accusations of all vegetarians being 'preachers' etc etc, but as with most beliefs, the vocal minority does not represent the majority.
I have been a vegetarian for 22 years, and I would never foist my beliefs about it onto anyone else. However, for the entirety of those 22 years, about 25% of people who learn about my diet for the first time have given me shit and teased/harassed/made fun of me for it. There are rude people in every walk of life, and I would not deign to suggest that all meat eaters are preachy douchebags, because the other 75% haven't been like that. I've also known a number of other vegetarians/vegans, and the same approximate statistic has been true of them. So just remember that before making blanket statements about groups of people.
You mean the charred flesh of tortured animals doesn't appeal to you? An intervention was certainly in order.
