There is nothing amusing about revisionist history. "F" vegetarians.


Oh yes because all vegetarians are a threat to history and YOUR way of life.
Ridiculous.

All you points are completely valid and I will in future be more mindful of the reality she wishes to project onto my/her grand/son!


However I still lament the distortion of what once was into a farcical pantomime far removed from its historical reality!


Aren't you shocked by this parents clear blatant militant desire to totally control every aspect of her sons 'reality' so that it no longer has any baring in 'reality'


What does such parenting bode for the rest of polite civilized society at large I know not, but I am 100% sure it isn't good!



edit on 16-3-2014 by ZonedOut because: to fix spelling.


No I'm shocked by your blatant disrespect for the mother of your grandchild whom by her grace are you still part of his life since your son slacked off.

Obviously you're one of those women that think other women are entitled no matter what.

So when is a good time to spring it on a child that you follow a different way than most other people? 3? 4? perhaps right before they start kindergarten you could say.. "hey, by the way... when you go to school you have to eat something different than everyone else..."

I have seen how children turn out when the world is hid from them, and how they turn out when they are exposed to critical thinking from day one...I choose open and honest from day one any day of the week.

ANYway, the vegetarian diet is inadequate, particularly in the area of protein. I think it's abusive to deny meat to a growing child.

Not really, you start by saying people eat lots of different ways.

There's many different ways to provide protein other than from animals.

Why change the nursery rhyme? Heaven forbid she ever take the child grocery shopping and have to explain what that red stuff is in the meat case ...

There is no substitute for the protein provided by meat.

Seems pretty simple to me. "That's beef, that's hamburger, that's ham, that's pork, that's chicken."

Technically speaking, pigs don't typically eat roast beef, at least not in their wild, natural habitat. Of course, they don't usually go to market, or have a home to stay in either. Point is, it's just a made up rhyme with no basis in reality, so you can make up whatever you like. If the woman wants to change the rhyme, or make up her own rhyme, I see no problem in it.

My daughter was a total vegetarian for the first 10 years of her life. She's been eating some seafood for the last couple of years. She's always been an A student, and at 12 1/2, she is 5' 6", weighs 120 lbs, and is in no way unhealthy - no iron or any other deficiency. I let her play hooky from school one day last month, because she just never gets sick, and she was jealous of her friends that had sick days off from school this winter.

I told her when she was about 4 or 5, that we don't eat meat, but when and if she ever wants to, that is her choice - I have no problem with it. So far, she has no interest in it. She knows people with lots of different diets, from her meat-centric cousins to her vegan bff.

Well, she is not doing that.. she is hiding the fact that there is a word called roast beef.

You have your beliefs and I have mine... but have you ever wondered why so many kids these days are just plain stupid? It's because no one teaches them how to think and examine evidence, not at home, not at school, not anywhere.

They are taught to follow like blind sheep to get by... its no wonder we have such a dumbed down society anymore.

But that would mean that if you chose to use the words roast beef - you would be hiding vegetarianism away - and in fact lying about reality?

:-)

It's a cultural choice - I'm betting the mother doesn't east meat for a reason, and she's decided to change it to tofu to reflect her philosophy - much as someone who eats meat would think nothing of a rhyme about eating roast beef

Nursery rhymes are not sacred texts after all - or historical documents. They're little bits of culture we teach our kids for a variety of reasons - and they change all the time:
Ring a Ring o' Roses


Common British versions include:

Ring-a-ring o' roses,
A pocket full of posies,
A-tishoo! A-tishoo!
We all fall down.[2]

Sometimes in Britain, this version is used:

Ring-a-ring o' roses,
A pocket full of posies,
A-tishoo! A-tishoo!
We all fall down.
Fishies in the water,
Fishies in the sea,
We all jump up,
With a 1-2-3!
Common American versions include:

Ring-a-round the rosie,
A pocket full of posies,
Ashes! Ashes!
We all fall down.

The last two lines are sometimes varied to

Hush! Hush! Hush! Hush!
We've all tumbled down.

Wow

Disdain for both vegetarians - and feminists - in a thread about little piggies, roast beef and tofu...

Must be a slow news day

The word slow being up for interpretation

:-)
