- Vegetarianist nonsense
edit: and would have sunk ages ago if it was in that many disparate sections.
Ah, ha ! and my funny fellow, you’d have got me there, if I didn’t now invoke the STW Molgrips forum law of fairness and queueing.
In which case, a modular hull’d battle ship capable of being in more than one position at once is indeed the future and will superceed 29″ wheeled bikes, by next week.Posted 6 years ago
Have you stopped to consider how plants must feel? How would you like it if one day, while happily at one with the earth, roots nutured by the soil, leaves warmed by the sunlight, you were hacked off at the roots, tossed into a hopper, had your leaves torn off, skin abraded, and you were chopped into bits before your bleeding sap body was boiled alive? At least the animals get the chance to peck, or bite, or kick, or run away.

Oh, the horror of it ! Won’t anyone think of the children ?
I suspect therein lays the problem.

Do get just a bit frustrated with the “I’m vegetarian, but I eat fish and chicken” brigade.
Or hard line veggies clad in leather.
Was told it was ok to wear it by one woman years ago because it was a byproduct and the cow had not been killed for the leather. She was a bit flummoxed when I asked if using by-products was ok then surely she would be ok to eat mink?Posted 6 years agoormondroydMember
My girlfriend’s vegetarian so I eat mostly vegetarian stuff. Frankly it’s great, and it made me realise that meat just becomes a habit. We eat meat because, well, we eat meat. It’s not really necessary, certainly not in the quantities we eat it.
And then I stop and think about all the vast negatives of the meat industry, and the environmental and moral harm it does, and I think it’s bloody obvious that we should eat a lot less of it. And then I think about the disgusting way most meat products are produced, and I watch cans of carcinogen-contaminated horsemeat-filled products pulled out of supermarkets, and I look at the great stuff we cook at home without using all that shit, and I REALLY am glad I eat much less of it.
Some of the arguments on this thread are so daft that I hope people are trolling, but I’ve heard them enough times from non-trolls not to be convinced.Posted 6 years agonickjbMember

You could say exactly the same thing about wheat, coffee, sugar, etc, though. Probably more a sign of overpopulation and the attitudes of commercial food producers in generalPosted 6 years agodazhSubscriber
After being a stereotypical holier than thou vegan when I was young (who isn’t holier than thou at the age of 20?) I’m largely of the ‘couldn’t give a sh*t what other people eat’ opinion these days. I tend to find meat-eaters are much more bothered about what I/other veggies/vegans eat than I am about them, and this thread would appear to support that.
However, if there’s one thing I still can’t stand, it’s when the ill-informed idiots question the wisdom of bringing our kids up vegan.Posted 6 years ago

Don’t, its not worth it. Live and let live.
I am Human, I eat meat, its what Humans do.
I don’t.Posted 6 years ago
I’m a veggie of 32 years.
I think I should be cross with them, even if it’s just to maintain some feeling of self worth.
Agree – live and let live (especially the fluffy animals 😉 😀 )rusty90Member
the problem with meat is it’s very inefficient, most of the food that goes in the front of the animal comes out the other end, only a small proportion gets turned into meat.
You could see that as a sign of efficiency, rather than the other way round. Grass gets processed to remove sugar which builds muscle mass for us to eat and the rest is returned to the ground to make more grass. I can see the process taking place right now from my office window 🙂Posted 6 years ago
And certainly as far as upland sheep farming goes, it’s about the most efficient way to produce food from poor quality land. There’d certainly be no point trying to grow maize or soya on my land, but it produces excellent lamb!TuckerUKMember
Apparently, the vegetarian diet can’t supply the right nutrients to maintain a working sense of smell.
Except for the ones who eat fish.
Vegetarian: People who don’t eat MEAT.
Meat: The flesh of ANIMALS
ANIMAL: a living organism which feeds on organic matter, typically having specialized sense organs and nervous system and able to respond rapidly to stimuli. Examples: Birds, mammals, fish, insects.
No vegetarians eat fish. There might be some people that eat fish that call themselves vegetarians, but they aren’t called vegetarians, they’re called idiots.Posted 6 years agoLiferMember

Some people need to point out the differences between their majority group and ‘the other’ to make themselves feel superior/like they belong to something.
