Great! That's cool. Can you understand that it's okay if you choose this for yourself but that doesn't mean that everyone should make the same
choices you do?
I have not seen her say anything contrary.
I have seen the OP make some claims, little evidence to back it up, and then saw a horde of people coming out claiming vegetarians/vegans are wrong,
unhealthy, ignorant, silly, etc, and the occasional "Hmmm meat, BBQ, Me caveman, me kill foooodd.." yet only offer ribs and bacon as an example of
their might instead of how they go and slaughter their own food, store it, and live life without all the luxuries they then go on to claim these
vegetarians and vegans are taking for granted.
Does everyone here not consider the luxury they have in not having to slaughter their own meat? Do you think that Joe Teatowel and Susan Recliner,
would be happy to go out the back, shoot bessy in the face, then carve her up? That is how it used to be, before mass consumption and profit came into
it, so the argument that "You vegos wouldnt last 5 minutes in the woods, you're too used to the luxury of having it all done for ya!" is
meaningless. Sure, someone capable of being a survivalist WOULD be willing to hunt and gather. I know that, and there is no doubt.
But how many average people be willing to actually go do that? Paris Hilton isn't the only one who thinks laundry is something other people do for
I then saw a few vegetarians come out in defence, stating to each their own, but here we are. 7 pages in, and they are still being hounded.
And FYI - I just had a meat pie. So in my own way Im doing something good for the protection of animals; there absolutely no meat products in a modern
meat pie ;(
