What do you think about végétarisme without not only meat, but fish and milk either? I know people who feel great without these products! Is it a habit? How do you think?

Veganism?

I was a Vegan, and a Vegetarian for many years.

It depends on your eating habits, not what you eat.

What are you trying to get at?

Are you interested in being a Vegan? Do you want some advice? Are you just trolling?

Vegans, lol. People that like to force their B.S. views on how people should eat on others.

Here's some crap they were passing out on campus. I lol'd for a while.

If a vegetarian gets to preaching to me about cruelty to animals and the bad conditions of the animals, (which rarely ever happens) I tell them that the problem isn't how we treat animals. The root problem is human overpopulation. Eating meat is a natural thing, but there's just too many people in the world who need to eat, so we're forced to overproduce animals and pack them into cramped spaces on farms to compensate for the demand of meat. So, if they want to help the situation, don't have any children!

I agree with you completely fleurya. I attack the situation from both ends. I became a vegetarian and don't plan on having a kid/kids to help control the human population.

I was wondering how long it would take for this thread to take a few humorous pokes at the idea of vegetarianism. I was getting worried for a bit that we had become too politically correct. Glad to see some debate starting to occur.

I am not sure that we need to take sides though. It is a personal issue in the end. Some people are not comfortable eating meat, some are. The human animal is an omnivore - we are capable of eating and making our necessary nutrition from both animal and vegetable sources. Hence we can each choose how we wish to nourish ourselves.

I had a couple vegan friends in high school. After graduation we went on a trip to Japan. We ate at a local Wendy's that advertised a garden burger. They thought it meant is was a vegetarian burger, but we later learned that the name only meant the burger had a lot of vegetables on it. It was hard to keep from laughing.

That image that says "If everyone would cute their meat consumption in half, billions of animals would be spared from the suffering.." is kinda funny..

It wouldn't spare them, they'd just get slaughtered/consumed slower, at least I'd think so.

Yup...i'm not deciding my daily food intake because some wants to protest the treatment of animals.
