I'm sorry, are you one of those vegetarian's that makes the distinction between one kind of animal and another? Like theones that say "I don't eat
meat, but I like Fish!". My missus used to be like that, was an avowed veggie, but ate fish, chicken and bacon as she didn't see that as "meat".
I have now turned her completely to the dark side, so all is well..
So it's ok to eat termites but not cows? What is the difference? Their both living beings, so if you're going to get all moral about how bad it is
to eat meat, either it's all bad or none of it is.
Termites aren't meat.... What a stupid thing to say.
Besides, all of the major primates eat meat and quite a bit of it too. Our digestive systems are designed to eat a varied diet, as are our teeth.
I am totally on board if people want to eat cabbage soup and lentils for the rest of their days, but what I don't like or understand is the militant
Veggies who insist
on ramming this quasi-fascist bull crap about how it's bad, or how we're not designed to eat it.. If you want to eat
Broccoli sandwhiches, crack on, but I will eat meat and bloody well enjoy it too. Judging by the complexions and general health of the veggies I know,
it seems it is you who is barking up the wrong tree.
