That's right, all of you vegetarians have no moral high ground. The plants you eat have never killed another living thing to survive. All animals are guilty of feeding on other living things. For me to eat an animal is less immoral due to the fact that it has committed the same sin as I. Plants (most of them), on the other hand, have led a completely peaceful existence and survive without killing other lifeforms for sustenance. Therefore, the plants should be considered innocent and more evolved than us animals. They should be protected from us. I know this is a silly thread but I just wanted to put the thought out there and troll some holier than thou vegetable killers.

SAVE THE PLANTS FROM VEGETARIANS

Plants eat dead plants and steal valuable sunlight that could be used on solar panels and reduce fossil fuels.

They also have no sense of personal space or common curtesy, take weeds for example? how rude is that?

I always wondered what vegetarians had against plants ?


Extra added tidbit ......


There are no true Vegan's in the world . If they ever lick an envelope for a stamp they have consumed tallow a animal byproduct .

Also any vegan using electricity is actually using dead dinosaurs as fuel.

That can't be right can it?

I don't think people have eaten "plants" since Henry VIII's era...

Crops and vegetables aren't plants in the traditional sense as they have no value other than to nourish the surrounding eco-system.

Plants, as in leafy plants produce oxygen...
I don't think potatoes or carrots do that.


Morals are subjective, and I don't think T&Cs take to kindly to intentional trolling.
For what it's worth.

Don't forget studies have been done which seem to show that plants feel pain,and can sort of communicate with one another.

Evil veggies!
Although I am one-not a perfect one though,as that is pretty much impossible these days-I just avoid meat as I don't like it for some reason.
I wear leather shoes though-I mean the cow is already dead,and the shoes are already made so by avoiding that I do not save the cow in question.

Most crops do have leaves though Charlie-even carrots and potatoes!

LoL touché.

I'm sure there is a difference between the type of leaves on vegetables and regular plants...
I have looked for a link but can't seem to find one.

I could well be wrong.

But but but..........

People like that are always right !!!! No matter how haughty, opinionated and nasty they are when they voice their opinions in their mind they are always better than us lower forms of people .


Have you seen this video ?

You create a demand by buying those shoes, some other cows in Bangladesh have died because of you !!!

When have you ever seen a holier than thou vegetarian on this site... maybe a handful on the internet in your entire life?

Here's a fun fact for you though. In my entire life I've never been able to say "no thank-you, I'm vegetarian" without having to justify myself. I even try to not say that I'm vegetarian.

"Aren't you hungry?"
"No, I'm fine thank-you."
"Just a little chicken?"
"No, really I'm good... I ate a little while ago, thank-you though."
"There's ham too if you don't like chicken."
*sigh on the inside*
"Thanks but I'm a vegetarian, I ate already though so I'm not hungry."
"OH! I wish I had known!"
"It's okay, I didn't want you to go out of your way" (Plus no one asked and I didn't want to assume you were serving food)
"I could never give up meat, it's too good."
*smiles*
"Oh I eat plenty of food I love."
"What made you... I hope we aren't offending you?"
"I'm not offended at all, I know most people eat meat."
"Eating meat is natural you know... I mean humans are carnivores."
"Yeah, I just don't like too."
"Well, why not?"
"Is there some place I can smoke a cigarette?"
"That's not good for you, I thought you were a health nut."
"Nope, I just don't want to eat meat. Out back or out front?"

Really this can go on for an hour... I'm a hit at parties. Which is flipping fantastic for my social anxiety.

Oh settle down this was just a silly musing.

On a side note, if you aren't one of the "holier than thou" vegetarians the snide remark wasn't directed at you

That may be a cultural thing, Here in the UK most people have no issue with vegatarian/vegan choices apart from a few half joking alpha males who like to laugh but usually in jest.

I do however know a lot of self rightious vegaterians who like to think they hold the moral high ground whilst failing on many different levels.

I like the fact that an obvioulsy trolling thread is turning into a legit one but think you should stop feeling sorry for yourself and just say "NO I DO NOT EAT MEAT!!!"

Just relating the other side of it. Seems to me that people relate manners with snootiness these days.

Your post suggeted that you felt you had a hard time bieng a vegatarian and it affected you?

How else could I interpret it?

You just made me relive about 50 social encounters I've had. My favorite is when you finally have to tell them you don't eat meat and then they start offering different meats as if being a vegetarian only pertains to the first meat they offered you.

That's why sometimes I will just stick to the "I'm just not hungry" until they give up. I normally do everything I can to not have that conversation because, as soon as they find out, they get defensive about their own meat-eating as if I was judging them.
