Why are you a vegetarian? - Page 4

post #46 of 65
This is a stupid statement from guy that mentioned cannibalism. Killing people and pigs is not the same. Killing people for food is by my standards sick, which killing pigs is ok by me. As I explained earlier, not only do we kill to survive (to eat) almost every animal does it. There is a thing called chain food if you heard for it by any chance, and thanks to god we're at top of it. As the guy has lower abilities to understand what I wanna say, or just pretends like that and wants to provocate, doesn't matter, I will explain more detailed.

If some of you haven't understood by now, killing has to be done in order to survive, and you can't avoid that. You either kill, or you get killed. So let's get one thing straight, food was once a living being, and in some cases it still is, untill eaten.

Food = living being

Now some people value some foods more than others. I don't see fucking difference between pork and an apple, from a moral standpoint. All I know is pork has more proteins and fat, and apple is good source of carbohydrates and vitamins. I enjoy eating both, and won't stop doing it. Just because you can't look the fucking apple in the eye when you kill it, it doesn't mean it's more ok to it than a pig.

That is a dumb way to think.

However I too have some restraints regarding meat. I'd never eat a cat, dog, horse, monkey, and similiar, unless i am forced to. Human flash would be my last food choice. I'd eat it only if I was to die if I didn't eat it, otherwise I wouldn't eat it.

So there is no need to bring up retarded statements about canibalism. And I don't view things as black and white.

I just want to make it clear that vegetarians are dramatizing way too much. All you guys cost alot of other living beings their lives anyways, with your existance you kill them so it pretty much doesn't fucking matter what you eat.

Eat your fucking tofu burgers, I don't give a fuck. Just don't fucking irritate me by pretending that you're a saint since you don't eat meat, because you fucking ain't and that has been proven.

I've indirectly killed over 6,000 lambs from New Zealand and France over the past couple years and regret that I've only ate only about 6 lamb racks in that time. Recently I had a beautifully grilled pair of lamb chops with a pommery grain/gremolata type sauce on the side, but still, not enough to make up for my doings.

I feel anything is good to eat as long as it is sustainably (and of course humanely) raised and harvested. That being said, in my opinion, meat in every single meal is too much. I'll eat meat once a day for protein and meal variety. When it comes to being a vegetarian, I'm going to say it would be difficult. It is true we can get non-animal based protein sources but it isn't easy to get saturated fats without animals. The whole world can't be sustained on coconuts (and the like) alone. Saturated fats are crucial for human development and health. Balance is perfection, appreciate every bite that goes into your mouth. If only more parents and educational institutions would teach this to today's children.

Thanks for the tip. I'm vegetarian maybe 3-4 days a week. Health reasons only, no ethical ones.

I ave been following your comments with interest and sadly I can't find an icon for talking through your arsehole, which is what your doing. I have read some crap in my time but your ignorance takes the cake. What other living beings are you talking about by the way? Broccoli? Spinach? I don't think I am a saint for being a Vego, its simply a lifestyle choice I made which is a statement about how I choose to live my life and express a particular set of values. And after reading your posts I don't think you even understand the concept of Values or Ethics. I wonder are you really human

You may actually argue that it can be considered unethical to not eat meat. If we allowed every mammal to flourish, and did not bother to hunt or exercise our carnivorous nature, this would pose problems for, not only other species, but the entire ecosystem itself. In nature, this is referred to as a symbiotic relationship. The story of the gray wolf in Yellowstone National Park is a prime example of this. The ethics behind CAFOs and animal cruelty is a whole other issue. However, just because you eat meat does not mean you support this unsavory treatment of animals. The responsible thing to do is find a reliable source, and support producers who do practice an ethical and more "natural" treatment of their livestock.

First of all it is good that you make a thread on veg in this forum.In my view most of the people like to each veg becuase they want to stay healthy and fit but not because of its taste.

Yes, if we stop eating meat, stockyards and chicken coops are going to take over the planet! Oh wait, those are market driven
