While I can respect someone who chooses not to eat meat, I always immediately lose my respect for them when they start talking about their "passionate veganism". Its like "please, shut the F up. I am not in college, I am not an idealist. I do not want to live my life eating Soy Hotdogs". I mean, if God didn't want us eating hot dogs, he wouldn't have made Cow Scrotums and Lips so damned tasty.

Seriously, if you don't want to eat meat, thats great. But Vegans, I find, are annoying. Now mind you, I work with tons of Indian guys..and they are almost all Vegans of one degree or another...but they don't try to ram it down your throat. If you eat chicken, they don't lecture you, they don't look at you evilly, they don't make self-rightous gestures towards you at the table.

Be a Vegan, then shut the F up about it. Nobody wants to hear your tale about why you are a vegan, or a Christian, or a Jihadist.....live your life, and let other people live theirs ;)

I could kill a cow if I had to. I could beat a pig to death with a shovel. I can outsmart a chicken and catch it. I can't, however, catch a fish, or dive down and grab one, therefore, I refuse to eat them.

Also, fish sticks were the only thing my babysitter ever fed me as a kid, so I have a bad history with them.

I'm not even going to bother calling it ridiculous (which it is), but seriously, you would have less trouble preparing your own beef dinner than fish dinner?

Fishing rod... net... something. Seafood is definitely the easiest to catch/prepare yourself, regardless of whether or not you can swim.

I eat meat, but I've started to try cutting back on it (mostly from beef). I don't really have an ethical problem with eating meat, but it is pretty shitty how the animals are treated on industry farms. I'm more for a good life and a death that's as quick and painless as possible. :-P

EDIT:

i was going be veggie lol but my dad tell me that vegetable salads actually haev animal parts in them that are not list on ingrdient spot (on the can where its lsited). he say its gov conspiracy and i think that if ur gonna eat animals anyway i feel u should c whats told 2 u cus if that aint told imagine what else insnt... also he say pussies (sorry he say that) only eat salad. and i agree i think tho that is mean i guess.

I was a vegetarian for several years. Not because I love animals (which I do), but because my mum had a stroke in front of me and I got really weird about my diet.

The problem is, I'm a thin guy to begin with, but once I stopped eating meat, I couldn't keep weight on. I was in my early 20's, 5'10" and maybe 120-5 lbs.

But, I started traveling a lot for work, and it was too hard to live on the road and maintain that lifestyle. The first few times I had a burger again were NOT a pleasant experience.

Besides, I love my rare steak too much.

Plume, your solution to everything is sex. [-(

What would possibly be the point of giving up meat? The less you eat, the cheaper it becomes, the more I eat. It's simple really. You're not saving any animals.

Anyway, my favorite argument is when people say they won't drink milk. Do you know how painful it is for a cow to go un-milked? It's freaking devastating to them.


Cows are pumped full of hormones to produce an unnatural volume of milk. Cows also can't produce milk unless they're constantly producing young. Young which then go off to slaughter. Not to mention the milk cows when they have served their prupose are then killed as well. Those are some of the reasons why vegans don't drink milk. There are also health and environmental reasons.

Animals eat other animals. If vegans love animals so much, then why do they show so much disrespect and contempt by refusing to lower themselves to animal standards?


You have an ironic username. Did you know that gorillas don't eat meat? Well, they eat the occasional insect but other than that are strictly vegetarian.

Do you vegans want to post some of your alternate protein sources? I'm not vegan but I always seek different forms of protein to add to my diet. I eat a good amount of soy and just recently discovered the greatness of nutritional yeast.

My wife is, vegetarian (lacto-ova). She was born and raised along with her brothers. Since we've been married for the past 3 years my meat consumption has declined drastically. I would never have guessed one day I'd have rice, peas and cheese and call that dinner. The worst part is when I do crave a steak and finally eat some, my body is no longer use to digesting it and it goes through me like rotten Indian food.

My girlfriend is also a vegetarian, I hope my meals don't come to that.

Your post is blatantly trolling. My topic was just asking about who else on CAG was vegetarian or vegan. I did not attack other people's choices or insult anyone. You said you find vegans annoying but what do you consider your post to be? It's annoying.

If any of you thought that vegetarians/vegans were annoying and trying to shove their views in other people's faces more so than meat-eaters just look at this topic for an example of how that isn't true. It's full of meat-eaters posting annoying messages and trying to shove their views in other people's faces. On the flip-side not a single of the vegetarian posters has acted in that manner.

You cannot argue with the power of Kielbasa. Do not attempt to, you will fail.

But seriously, you opened the door to a discussion of lifestyle choices. I applaud Vegans for doing what they do. I, personally, do not follow that route. I can easily eat a vegetarian meal, they are deliscious. However, I have been in the company of some unfortunate souls who felt that they had the God Given right to tell the rest of us how wrong we were.

I have a fundamental problem with activisim of any sort, because an Activist is usually someone who's brain has shut down to the possibility that they might be wrong. Oh they'll drown you in their rightousness...but try to argue a point with them, and you're just wasting your breath....they're already convinced.

I am not saying you are this person, I am saying that Vegetarianism is a great thing to do, so long as you don't cop that "I'm right and you're not if you eat meat" attitude that, sadly, seems to come along for the ride on alot of people.

But mostly those are people who are Vegans just because they were looking for a cause to align themselves with.

From Seaworld.org


Western lowland gorilla (Gorilla gorilla gorilla):

This subspecies consumes parts of at least 97 plant species. About 67% of their diet is fruit, 17% is leaves, seeds and stems and 3% is termites and caterpillars.

Mountain gorilla (Gorilla beringei beringei):

This subspecies consumes parts of at least 142 plant species and only 3 types of fruit (there is hardly any fruit available due to the high altitude. About 86% of their diet is leaves, shoots, and stems, 7% is roots, 3% is flowers, 2% is fruit, and 2% ants, snails, and grubs.


Guess there are always exceptions to every rule.

Now I realize that this is going to sound like a very stupid question but I've heard various answers to it and I am wondering what you guys think. Can vegetarians eat animal crackers?

This started from a joke between me and my friends(one of us who is a vegetarian) according to him he doesn't because it contains ingredients derived from animals. So we decided to go around asking some other vegetarians(we were bored and had nothing else to do) and surprisingly one of the answers we got was no because they were shaped like animals...That's probably a bit extreme isn't it?

Those are some of the reasons why vegans don't drink milk. There are also health and environmental reasons.


I get that people don't like the way animals are treated so they won't eat them but to say people abstain from milk for health reasons sounds crazy to me (unless they are allergic). Milk is good for you. I keep hearing "health" as a reason for people choosing to be a vegetarian but that just doesn't make sense. Any diet whether it consists of meat/animal products or not can be healthy (or unhealthy). It all depends on the person.

I think the health reasons are because of the hormones injected into the cows which allow them to produce so much milk is then transferred to your body when you drink it.

Its too bad you're still a prick with a stupid gimmick.

and

2.) What would you do if science discovered plants have tiny nerves and feel pain?

What about organic milk that doesn't have any hormones? Would people drink it then?

I personally don't drink milk because I am allergic to it and I can't stand the taste.

I personally eat all kinds of meat, but respect those who choose not to. The people I do not respect are those who say something like they are a vegetarian but they eat chicken and fish sometimes. WTF, if you eat chicken and fish sometimes you are not a vegetarian. Either stick to your guns and don't eat any meat or don't claim that you are a vegetarian.

Looks like I'm vegetarian #9 on the poll :).

As for the questions..
1) I personally wouldn't because I don't really miss the taste of meat and plus, it died of old age so it probably won't taste that great. But I don't see a moral problem there.

2) As long as the plants don't live horrible lives in little cages, I think my conscience would let me eat them.

I drink milk, so personally I would. I think strict vegans may feel that any animal by-product shouldn't be consumed so they wouldn't eat it anyway.
