I've noticed a fair number of vegans on CAG. Most gamers aren't vegan and most vegans aren't gamers so as a vegan gamer myself it's a nice surprise to see others. It got me wondering just how many vegetarians and vegans were on the site in general.

Update:
I'm happy to see so many fellow veggies on CAG so I created a CAG group for us vegetarians and vegans. If you're vegetarian or vegan and I didn't invite you send me a private message.

I had one last summer. I was asleep for it so I have no recollection of anything being up my ass.

Easily and for me personally it's for ethical and health reasons.

No, I'm respectful towards everyone and ask for the same in return. It's been my experience that meat eaters are much more likely to harrass vegans than the other way around.

I couldn't be paid to be a vegetarian/vegan. There's no way I could live that life!

It's comical when people bring this up, because I find the situation opposite to what you suggest- a meat-eater getting worked up at a vegetarian/vegan for not eating meat- much more common.

This is funny to me because I've always been hit up by the vegans for it. We had this one group on campus(had like, a school sponsored club), and one of the members was a friend of a person who was also a good friend of mine, and EVERY FUCKING TIME we went to dinner as a group she would just be all over my case about how unhealthy it was. It was ironic because she's one of those fat gothy girls.


I guess each group thinks the opposite.

Exactly! In social situations I've been harassed about not eating meat even when I was minding my own business and not saying a thing about other people's choices.

I don't eat red meat or pork for health reasons. My fiance is a vegetarian though so in general I eat almost no meat. Don't really miss meat at all and if I never ate it again I don't think I'd care.

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

I absolutely love meat. If I learned tomorrow that I couldn't eat anymore meat, I am not sure life would be worth living...

And so you hold animosity towards an entire faction on the basis that one member (a fat goth girl, no less) of said group blasts you for your lifestyle?

yeah..i think it goes both ways. i think a lot of it has to do with maturing and getting older. when you're younger, you tend to be more idealistic and think that you can change other people's beliefs by arguing and being aggressive. at least as i get older i focus on what i personally feel is right, but am more than happy to discuss these things if people are interested. i just don't push my beliefs on other people

If she's such a militant vegan why was she going out to places that serve meat in the first place?

I find that approach to be the best as well. I try to lead my life by example and not by being preachy or in your face. I find those approaches to be counterproductive.

There's no animosity towards people who keep it to themselves. It hasn't been just one person. There was a group of them yelling at people outside of a mongolian barbeque, another two people used to sit outside a local meat-market and try to force brochures on customers (I think the police finally stopped that), that fat bitch's friends who also went to dinner at points were just HORRIFIED that I eat very little plant material (this was when I was on a ketosis-based diet for about 4 weeks to shed bodyfat. I used to be 23+%BF), another group at the Columbus food festival, and the little guy who almost cried because he saw me wearing a leather motorcycle jacket.

I'm sure people have given you shit, but the "militant vegan" thing is a most assuredly NOT a myth.

Because I refuse(d) to go to a place that serves(ed) exclusively vegetarian dishes. It was a decent compromise, she didn't have any trouble finding anything to order, and she sure pounded down the bread.


I'm not giving anyone shit about their diet; mine's very specific and narrow for slow lean-mass gains, and I get hell for it ALL the time. I don't really get onto someone's case unless they pick at me first, so if you guys aren't trying to convert people to the point where it becomes annoying and trite then it's all good.

That's fine, but the OP clearly isn't one, nor is he looking to stir up any trouble. He's just looking for some folks he shares a common interest with.

Let's move along and talk about delicious vegetarian foods or meals.

Most gamers aren't vegan and most vegans aren't gamers


Where the hell did you get this factoid from?

I'll eat anything, and oftentimes dig on veggie/vegan food.

If there's one kind of diet-based people I DESPISE, it's tater-chip-and-french-fry vegans. Motherfuckers who have no idea how to put nutritious food in their belly, yet preach how ethical their diet is.

Besides, there's beef tallow in them thar french fries, most likely.

But that's not based on their diet as much as it is based on the idiocy of their self-love coupled with a dumbass diet.

There are indeed militant vegans but there are militant meat-eaters as well.

As for refusing to go to an exclusively vegetarian place I recommend you give them a chance. I personally know many non-vegetarians who enjoy them.

Are you a body builder?
