FML - The follow-up

Today, my dad took me to the 'Super Butcher'. It's basically a warehouse turned into a giant, walk-in meat freezer, complete with headless pig carcasses. I'm a vegetarian. FML

frostedmist Say more :
i'm a teenager. a"child" in my fathers eyes. and it's easily 28 degrees Celsius outside. and he managed to make me wear jeans and a jumper, saying it would be cold. i didn't know we were going there. He thought it would be ok for me to walked around in a giant meat freezer.

Unless he carried you in there or dragged you kicking and screaming, you have no excuse because you walked your own dumb ass into the place. With a name like "Super Butcher", what did you expect to find inside, daisies and rainbows?

I thought that was a silly question until I actually thought about it. A coworker is a vegetarian who buys and cooks meat for her husband. They are not all militant carnivore-haters. I don't know that she'd enjoy seeing animal carcasses (most people wouldn't).

90: I'm a vegetarian and fully aware of that. It's a life choice. 77: Actually, most meat you eat comes from factory farmed animals who were raised inside factories and given steroid their whole life, far away from any grass or sunshine.

Yeah, I would get that you know. But some people, for some odd reason, think that eating meat is unnatural. Like, for example, the old FML that said 'my poor body is confused'.

Eating meat isn't unnatural (hell even squirrels and deer will eat carrion), but the amounts humans, especially Americans eat and how it is produced in factory farms IS. I have no qualms with handling dead animals (I've butchered squirrels and chickens before), but I'd not touch modern meat. I'm vegetarian because it's near impossible to get good meat unless you hunt or raise and kill your own.

127, Don't say that too loud, there are a lot of people who are in a delusional state of perpetual superiority. If they found out that even some pets could kill them I think they may literally explode, and with the number of them around these days, that'd be one hell of a mess for the rest of us to clean up.

#87, I was using extremist language to represent a viewpoint - in this case that of the "OMG meat is murder, you fucking carnivores, you might as well eat people" type of vegetarian (that was an actual comment posted on a different website).

147-Actually we are at the top of the food chain, seeing as how we are capable of killing any animal on this earth. Even if we can't do it alone we have the ingenuity to build weapons that will assist us in killing the animal.

175's right. Could a cow kill a human? Undoubtedly, if she was determined enough. But humans kill way more cows, so we're above them on the food chain. Jungle cars don't become endangered by killing more humans than they're killed by.

Yeah that sucks. I hate walking through the frozen foods section at the grocery store and the air temperature isn't even that bad. I'd really hate having to walk through a giant freezer to do my shopping. Wait... that was your concern, wasn't it?

Oh god, unicorn meat... it's delicious. And it makes you see rainbows and dolphins and sparkles for hours afterwards... *starts humming that song from Robot Unicorn Attack* Unfortunatly, it does cause you to become cursed. Damn.
