What do you mean buy your own lunch? Maybe bring a lunch from home, but they don't let elementary kids out on their own

Listen here asshole.
If I go to a steak house with family I know to eat ahead of time.

But a public schools ARE actually required to cater to everyone's needs.
Because, you know, it's public.

Needs, not desires.

A school needs to provide food with no allergens fatal to any member of the student body. That child needs to avoid eating certain foods to prevent coming down with an unfortunate case of death.

If you desire to eat a vegetarian/vegan diet, then you can't expect the school to have accommodated that in advance since it's something you decided you want. Plus, most families that lead that kind of lifestyle are much, MUCH more apt to provide their children food from home that fits that lifestyle, since they're more likely to have done more research to that specific diet.

And vegetarians pay taxes just like everybody else.
Taxes that pays for public school lunches.
Many of which contain meat. Complaining about the fact that some school lunches do have meat would be wrong.

Asking that a school provide an option for your child in line with your ideals is not.

Taxes don't pay for public school lunches (At least in America), you buy what they offer.
You can get free lunch if you're dirt poor and need help and if you're that bad off don't bitch and eat that meat.

Friend, its a law.
And they do have to cater to everyone.
Deal with it.
User avatar #40 to #39 - playerdous (04/15/2014) [-]

There's a **** ton of laws don't just say 'Its a law"
And they only need to cater to the least common denominator

culture and principal are considered needs, good buddy.
A lot of people are vegetarians for religious purposes.

Every good statement starts out with "listen here asshole"

Her parents paid taxes, so that she could get food at the school. She also says "Aren't you supposed to have a vegetarian alternative", which implies that it should be an alternative that caters to her needs, but the school neglects it.

Seems like every show has their ultra liberal mouthpiece for the creators. Lisa (simpsons) Brian (family guy) Haylee (American Dad) ****************************** (Cleveland show)

Not that she disagrees with other people, but that she is the only one in the class who does not want to do something that everyone else just does. They are supposed to be 'blindly' following what they are supposed to do, and since she goes against the grain she has independent thought and is a threat to society.

Realistically, no. But it's a cartoon.

That's jsut one thing that pisses me off about Lisa's character. Although she's smarter than everybody else, the episodes make it seem like anyone who doesn't think exactly like her is retarded
#15 to #5 - firereadyaim (04/14/2014) [-]
shes the liberal writer's mouth piece, of course he'd want everyone who disagrees with her to look retarded and for her to look super smart, its how he sees himself

When this episode came out Vegetarianism wasn't anywhere nearly as accepted as it is now.
User avatar #11 to #10 - deezknuts (04/14/2014) [-]
That is true

Holy **** dude, you must be so ******* cool. Tell me more about how cool you are.

I was cool enough to not have to go anon to be a facetious pink pussy.

I dont get it. are they saying 1) school is a place where independt thought is punished or 2) vegetarianism is some kind of idependent though?
#19 to #14 - amuzen ONLINE (04/14/2014) [-]
They're saying some most schools are a place where independent thought is punished and that desiring to eat something other than what they serve is an independent thought.
#32 to #19 - firereadyaim (04/15/2014) [-]
I wouldn't say its really punished, I can't think of ever being "punished" for having a different thought(not Including "punishment" for doing/saying weird **** by your peers by way of bullying, exclusion, ect). I also definitely wouldn't say its encouraged. And if Lisa was so against meat nothings stopping her from bringing her own food. I feel like the writers are just using her to say people who don't give a **** about vegitarianism are totally lame and against free thought.

TL/DR: Lisa seems like a cunt
