So by that same argument, it is ok to eat a lot of our livestock because some of the species would perish without our husbandry.

Are you really saying it is kosher to eat certain things because they don't experience pain? How do you know? What if we numb up the animals before slaughter? If they don't feel pain, is it ok to eat them?

Because they have faces?

That's because they're made of food.

And if we were in a plane crash, middle of nowhere, nothing to eat for days and days and days, they would probably end up in my belly.

Is this why brain damaged patients are called Vegetables?

Prozac and Quinoa smoothies for everyone!

Please use jazz hands, as clapping is a trigger to some attendees.

Can't we all just compromise and agree that meat is awesome?



Kindest regards,

I'd be depressed too if I didn't eat meat. It's too yummy!


I think this may be the first time I ever agreed with you, but hey, you are spot on...it would be very depressing to be a vegetarian.

If you ate me afterwards, I wouldn't take you to court over it.



same with animals

As soon as they say it's not ok, I'll stop eating them.
