I'm a vegetarian. I’ve been a vegetarian almost my entire life.

Yes, there are health benefits from avoiding hormone-riddled meat and it does prevent millions of animals from being slaughtered but, to be truthful, I’m a veggie because I love the delicious flavour of self-righteousness and moral superiority that comes with being a vegetarian. Delicious.

Was vegetarian for 3 years, then tried veganism for a year, from the age of 14 to 17.. I feel healthier when consuming meat.

A health warning was recently issued, alerting vegans to an alarming rise in malnutrition amongst their numbers, and to consume some meat every once in a while. Most vegans are temporary ones, then revert back to omnivores once they have slimmed down.. or so they say.
The possibility of anything we can imagine existing is endless and infinite

Vegetarians are superior, meat-eaters and vegans are inferior.

Some say going soy will turn you into a pacifist, I am not a PACIFIST I am the one who laws down the law, my own law, I am the one who knocks so SAY MY NAME

I’m a veg simply because I can’t enjoy eating meat knowing the animal suffered in the process.

It’s not a complex ethical issue for me. Do animals suffer in the process? If yes, I refuse to support it.

The health benefits of abstaining from eating animals that have been force-fed unnatural food, shot up with artificial growth hormones and injected with multiple mercury-laden vaccines is just a beneficial side effect.

Yes, you need to make sure you’re getting a balanced diet (or taking vitamin pills) but you should be doing that if you eat meat, too. Meat eaters tend to lack vitamins that come from greens, for instance.

The bottom line is this: If someone put a cooked dog in front of a westerner, most would be horrified. If they’ve seen the torture the animals go through in the process then arguments about the benefits of eating dog meat wouldn’t change your mind. I don’t see any significant difference between eating a pig, a cat, a dog or a cow.

Having said that, I think people should come to their own ethical conclusions in their own time. It's healthier if people become vegetarian from their love of animals rather than out of guilt, shame or virtue signalling. Consuming poisons doesn't just come from consuming meat.


(Re health, I had a checkup two weeks ago and the doc said: "Keep doing what you're doing because you don't get healthier than what you are." Health is more than refraining from meat, of course, but being vegetarian works for me.)

I would eat a dog if it was seasoned right and smelled good.

i would eat a hot dog, if it was made out of Freerange chicken and i shooted it in the head, no pain no gain. Because soy dogs taste weird but good, but not as good as chicken dogs. After i shooted the chicken in the head i would cry after but so tasty. I would know the chicken hopefully reincarnated into a better place and that shooting it in the head did not give it much pain at all, maybe even a funny feeling of feeling good and going to a utopia.

but these fucking sjws and republicucks would make me go to life in prison for murder, thats how evil they are, i dont hate all sjws but the ones i hate you wont believe how much i hate them
