>Implying that all people who eat meat are ignorant of its origins, insinuating superiority through intelligence. Pathetic.
User avatar #672 to #28 - atrumaliger (05/23/2013) [-]
Just throwing it out there, but...

People who do this sort of thing (of the "Insinuating superiority through intelligence" vein) are the sort of people who -were- ignorant of its where-a-bouts. The person who used to enjoy meat, till they learned of what they did to animals.

So it's actually, hilariously, Freudian.

you mean that being inteligent isn't a form of superiority?

It is but they implied that they are more intelligent/ that meat eaters are unintelligent.

I know where my meat comes from. I know it was alive and is now dead. I know I'm eating a once-alive creature, with thoughts, instinct, flesh and bone the same as myself. But that is the circle of life. No one will argue about a bear eating a baby deer, so no one should argue about humans eating a full grown cow.

User avatar #118 to #59 - NinjaHermit (05/22/2013) [-]
I agree with you. For a being to live, other beings must die. Even plants are living things.

Hah, but one could argue that bears don't have the moral capacity to truly understand life and death. It just lives on instinct. Humans are different though. If we so wish it, we can ignore our instincts. We do have a sense of morality and a sense of the value of life. But we still choose to kill things regardless. Animals, and our fellow man, even if it's not necessary for survival. Plants are alive, yes, but not on the same level as cows and stuff. We could live of them. Minimize the suffering of other beings. Still, we choose to eat higher functioning beings, with thoughts and emotions, because we like the taste of them.

But humans are higher yet, or so most (humans) would say. Does that give us the right to do as we please with lesser beings? I dunno. But it's something I find interesting to ponder...

Anyway... Take my ramblings that for what you will.
User avatar #397 to #118 - lazysuzan (05/23/2013) [-]
What you are calling ''moral capacity'' can be described as a theory of mind, and yes humans are the only creature on earth known to posses this. This is what diverges the line between animals and humans.
User avatar #437 to #397 - NinjaHermit (05/23/2013) [-]
Mm-hmm. That is correct, it is one of our distinguishing features. Though, biologically speaking, we're all animals. Primates, one of the four "great apes".

How insightful, thank you.
#699 to #518 - anon (05/31/2014) [-]
Too bad he's wrong as primates are a higher order of classification, and there are 5 genera of great apes, not 4.

But hey, that's funnyjunk for you, where high school level science gets butchered.
User avatar #1 - Midirr ONLINE (05/22/2013) [-]
I actually like the idea.
Not only because you can easily take out the fresh meat.
But children will get used to the idea of food coming from killing animals at a very young age, to them this will become the most normal thing in the world.
So we'll eventually get less idiot vegans and vegetarians.
#680 to #1 - anon (05/23/2013) [-]
I've seen someone recommend that all children be taken to slaughter houses because, "Then they'd never eat meat again." Joke's on you bitch. I went to a slaughter house and had an extra cheeseburger that night.
#69 to #1 - Lunchboxman (05/22/2013) [-]
That would be a good point, if you understood vegans and vegetarians. Most do it because it takes more food to raise an animal than you receive from the animal. Heath benefits are great, lower cholesterol, less chance of colon cancer.

As for the mental part of it, I have no problem eating free range chicken from a local farm or trusted place. I do not trust chickens that are unable to stand to be fit for food. I don't trust the steroids or the living coniditions to be safe when they are wing to wing or flank to flank. These people don't care about quality, they care about quantity, and money. Don't willingly help them do ****** up business practices.
#247 to #69 - clockworkphysicist (05/23/2013) [-]
So any vegetable or meat that has a chemical you don't understand in it is poison? Does it really matter if it has stuff like GMO in it, humans live on average for 85 years most of whom eat chemically treated food, that's a long ******* time of eating chemicals. But the point is not good because even if you raise the animal organically and you plan to eat it, it will still have a "Killed on date."
#291 to #247 - Lunchboxman (05/23/2013) [-]
True, I do not dissagree with your scientific points. There would still be a killed on date and we do live 85 years on adverage, but those who are eating less processed, more organic meats and foods, have healthier bodies. It's not complex to understand that Old Mc Donald the farmer has better chicken than Mc Donalds drive through. As for gmo, we havent even been eating it for 85 years so there hasn't been even one generational cycle to know the effects of it.
#359 to #291 - clockworkphysicist (05/23/2013) [-]
Actually we have been eating Gmo's (Genetically modified organisms) for decades and decades, however our knowledge of such practices has been talked about more recently.
#571 to #359 - Lunchboxman (05/23/2013) [-]
1992
"The FDA declares that genetically engineered foods are "not inherently dangerous" and do not require special regulation."
This is the first point where widespread use of GMO's became acceptable, but it took a few years before it was even implimented.

That means it has only been about 20 years (max) that we have been eating GMO's of any kind. That isn't very long.
#33 to #1 - kateeb (05/22/2013) [-]
Listen up faggots. it's not like children don't know they're eating a dead animals. And anyway they'll grow up and still have their own opinions about what's wrong or right. Btw i'm kind of sick of the bash vegetarians bandwagon, maybe if you weren't so stuck on being socially accepted, like everyone on this site claims not to be (ironic huh), you might be more open minded about the different types of people who are vegetarians. Not every vegetarian is a self righteous asshole who's life goal is to turn everyone into a vegetarian.
User avatar #51 to #33 - mutzaki (05/22/2013) [-]
A four-year-old with chicken nuggets on its plate will not even think twice about where the food comes from or what it is. They will just munch down that tasty **** .
User avatar #60 to #51 - kateeb (05/22/2013) [-]
I don't know about the 4 year olds you know, but my baby cousin who is four knows that the "chicken" in "chicken nugget" is not there for fun.
User avatar #61 to #60 - mutzaki (05/22/2013) [-]
They may know about it, but they sure as hell don't give it critical thought. Kids that age simply don't understand the concept of death the same way.
User avatar #64 to #61 - kateeb (05/22/2013) [-]
Of course they don't give it critically about if it's right or wrong i'm just saying that children aren't retarded and that they might not have opinions on if it's right or wrong at that moment, but will in the future regardless of the labels being put on it or not.

"eventually we'll get less idiot vegetarians and vegans."

He means there will be less of them who are idiots. Or so I interpret. There are plenty of vegetarians who are vegetarians for the right reasons. PERSONAL ethical objections are fine. Hating meat itself in one form or another is perfectly fine. Accepting that plant matter is a much more efficient form of nutrition than animals are is also good. However, trying to make others feel bad for their eating choices is pure snobbery.

Wanna know something about human nature kid, humans like to kill. Most want to see violence, blood. But most of us don't want to see it happen to other humans, so our outlet? Animals. Not animals like cats or dogs, but the abundant and nutritious animals like chickens ,cows or deer. We do it because not only does it satisfy our need for violence, but also because we get the most nutrients. Hell, look on t.v.  bloody anime, UCF, WWE, Football, all violent. We of course are becoming more civil (Believe it or not) and our violence lust of the average human has gone down substantially, but that is because we have virtually transcended the food chain, not to mention religious, ethical, and logical development. Now the death of animals (most of which live in two second increments) is necessary more so for food, less than the malevolent satisfaction.  But violence is a part of life, and the sooner you can accept that, the less red thumbs you will receive, from funnyjunk and from nature.   
   
>TL;DR Humans are violent, deal with it.

Aha. Don't be so quick to make assumptions, friend. It was a joke, playing on how children can already be unintentionally cruel, because they don't know any better yet. Though admittedly, it was a joke that sounded better in my head. Hah. So, I'll take my red thumbs like a man.   
   
But yes, the world is indeed a cruel and violent place. Humanity has a terrible track record as far as that goes. Looking at history, some 14,000 wars have been fought in the 5,000 or so years. I'd go so far as to say that even here in modern times quite a few people still do enjoy seeing their fellow man suffer. We have words for it, such as schadenfreude. BDSM is a popular fetish. There's a whole genre of torture porn movies like Saw and Hostel.   
A person can talk all they want about how much more civilized and moral we are today but I don't think it would really take all that much for that to come tumbling down. Like I said, humans are animals, like it or not. World peace is a nice concept, but unfortunately I don't think we'll ever fully escape our violent nature.

I agree on the reasoning that it should be more open to children. I'm not a vegetarian but to be honest its actually much better for the planet overall to eat vegetarian. The world cant actually sustain a lot of meat eating societies.


Sorry, I just recently did a research paper on food waste and I know about it from class. Its not wrong to eat meat, but its not right to go out of your way to discourage vegetarianism either.
User avatar #55 to #14 - mutzaki (05/22/2013) [-]
I agree. I love the idea of a lot more people turning vegan, simply because of environmental benefits.
I'm a hypocrite, though, and still eat meat.
User avatar #215 to #55 - arisaka (05/23/2013) [-]
I'm a vegan who loves animals

but also recognizes the environmental impacts of the meat industry, and that is the platform for which I argue with because it is a non-philosophical/ethical one. If the planet dies, we all die, pretty basic stuff, right?
User avatar #221 to #215 - mutzaki (05/23/2013) [-]
That's really good, actually, because I can imagine it's the only argument a lot of people take seriously, since the ethical issue is subjective.
User avatar #235 to #221 - arisaka (05/23/2013) [-]
Exactly.

I mean I'm a die hard animal lover. I could argue both ways, and often I do, but my main argument for people I usually don't know well is the environmental costs. I became a vegan due to the whole animal rights thing because it hits closer to home, and somewhere in the argument I'll let that slip in, the same way people argue their philosophical maxims. For the most part, if you want to be a good arguer (and a manipulative little runt), you have to argue from the standpoint that hits closer to home with your opponent.

The worst thing about arguing from the animal rights perspective is people feel like you are preaching. In fact, simply being a vegan will make you some enemies. While being interrogated by some friends about my personal diet I was told several times "you sound like you're preaching".
User avatar #428 to #215 - Ashtaroth (05/23/2013) [-]
One question I always pose, as someone who works in the agriculture/food production industry: What do we do with the livestock if we don't eat it anymore? There are, now, in the U.S., thousands of times more cattle than there would be if humanity had never come along. It could be argued that humanity has actually helped cattle. They reproduce much more successfully than they would in the wild, since predators can't get to them and they're very well fed. Life comes down to: grow, gain strength, reproduce. Cows do that extremely well these days. But anyway...

What would happen if these 10s of million head of cattle were released into the wild? They would be EVERYWHERE. The environmental impact of having them confined is likely a good deal less than if they were wandering in enormous herds, crapping everywhere and eating everything. For the most part, there aren't any real predators for such things. They've been shuffled into their own "wild" confinements. So there'd be massive herds wandering around, plugging up highways for dozens of miles and multiple days, blocking up cities. The environmental impact would spread everywhere. Now add in the 100 millions of chickens, turkeys, ducks, pigs and whatever else. An enormous part of the reason we don't have plagues anymore is because of the omnivorous nature of human beings. Now fishing? That is being monstrously over done. But given that it's been building for centuries, the meat industry kinda has to continue. Adapt? Sure. Of course. My company works toward that. But it can't just stop. Unless you want to just insta-kill a billion creatures in the US and put millions out of work. Sucks, but it's a simple fact of life at this point.
User avatar #486 to #428 - arisaka (05/23/2013) [-]
Just like any massive change you can't do it in a heartbeat. The ball is NEVER moving to fast for us to stop it. I could use that logic against any kind of progressive argument that seeks to change an aspect in society. (remember recycling?)

I think predation will eventually keep down the population. Nature has a way of fixing **** . Human beings act in an un-natural way when we farm animals the way we do. And when the wolves and other predatory animals eat too many, they'll starve, and their numbers will go down too. Lets not forget, we've gone on witch-hunts for animals that ****** with our livestock - wolves have been nearly wiped out of the United States and Japan. It will be a lengthy process but I think the environment is worth it. We can't keep living the same way forever, and eventually, the antagonism is going to have to be corrected or it will correct us.

I don't mind people hunting for their own food, though.

Yeah I agree. Dunno why i got thumbed down, I guess thats what happens when you go against the general consensus.

I disagree.   
   
If meat does not make someone feel well (my mom, for instance), then by all means, eat whatever makes you feel good. I know that when I eat steak and broccoli I feel like superman. I am unstoppable and full of energy. Chicken and turkey doesn't really give me the same effect and pork makes me feel like crap. But elk, duck, beef, lamb (yes, I love eating babies), bison, and certain fish make me feel great.   
   
The people who say "be nice to the animals! don't eat them, they have feelings!" just irritate me. Do some research into the shanty towns where the farm workers live. Look at how vegetarians, in effect, reduce fellow human beings to being less than animals by giving animal suffering greater value than human suffering. This is disgusting to me. However, there are also people who enjoy meat but feel it is irresponsible to do so because of the environmental impact. For them, consider the following.   
   
Unless I eat out (which is rarely), all my food is organic and my meats are free range, organic, and grass fed (for beef). Same goes for my eggs and dairy. One of the reasons I do this is because I have come to the conclusion that the reasons that cancer, autoimmune disorders, obesity, and other diseases are rampaging is because of GMOs, pesticides, food additives and chemicals, and bastard companies like Monsanto that push garbage on everyone. No. I choose to eat food that is grown and raised like it would have been 200 years ago. Before all this stuff was going on. The other reason is that I do not think any creature should be stuck in a dark room its whole life then die painfully and often in a cruel manner. This is inhumane. Is this expensive? Yes. Is it worth it? Absolutely. Environmentally responsible, healthy, and the food tastes better. And I get to give the finger to people who think they're high and mighty because "they love animals."

Is it worth it? Absolutely. Environmentally responsible, healthy, and the food tastes better. And I get to give the finger to people who think they're high and mighty because "they love animals."

I actually agree with this. I am a vegetarian personally also. It's better for kids to get used to it early. I don't think eating meat is wrong because that is ridiculous. We are just animals, many animals including humans eat other animals to live naturally. I am a vegetarian partially because I don't like the way animals are treated and partially because I was never a huge fan of meat to begin with. I think these crazy are ridiculous though because killing animals to use them as food being thought of as murder or something is ridiculous. It's completely natural.

While I agree with your point, its important to differentiate the different types of vegetarians. I, myself, am a vegetarian by religion (inb4 hurr durr suck a dick fagt) and most of us aren't crazy

#441 to #92 - anon (05/23/2013) [-]
Actually no, taste is a tool used by our bodies to detect chemical concentration, food doesn't just start growing and decide to be sweet, we just see them as sweet, this is why foods taste different from person to person. Nothing is specifically "made" to be eaten, nearly all plants have a defense mechanism that is there to help deter animals from eating them, whether or not they are effective on humans is a different story completely. Oh and by the way, the fruit that we eat are basically tree uteri, the help keep thee seeds "eggs" safe until the fruit falls and then breaks down releasing the seeds.

In the EU, the label on packaged meat has to carry the information where the animal was born, where it was raised and where it was slaughtered. At times, also the date when the animal was slaughtered is often printed on the label. Each of these points reminds the consumer of the fact that this piece of meat was once a living animal, yet hardly anyone seems to be put off by it. In fact, most consumers appear to appreciate that information and these laws were put in place for consumer protection.

In most countries, people are quite aware of the fact that you are buying something that belonged to an animal. If you buy a whole chicken/turkey, then it's quite difficult to ignore that fact. Some butchers might sell things like pig feet which are rather easily identifiable. In the Middle East, it appears to be quite normal to display e.g. large parts of a lamb in a butcher shop. None of this seems to have reduced people's appetite for meat.
User avatar #9 to #4 - mephiblis (05/22/2013) [-]
When i was a kid, i spent my summers at my grandfathers farm where at the end of the summer we would slaughter the pigs that we had been keeping for a year (1 for each of his 3 daughters and 2 for him and his wife) and prepare the meat the same day and have a big feast. So i saw them kill them, gut them, skin them, chop em up and cook em. Did it put me off? Hell no, made me love it even more. And for me, the pig is the king of the animals (until i find a lion that tastes better).

Half of what you said are correct, and the other half is a bit misinformed.

Celiacs disease is something you get from being allergic to the gluten found in wheat, barley, rye and oats. (oats can be contaminated from other grains).
If you become a vegan, and you start consuming a ******** of bread and pasta instead of meat, then yeah, you will probably worsen your already existing celiacs disease.

BUT, meat has absolutely no "supplements" that helps on celiacs disease, as the only thing that helps celiacs disease is to stop consuming gluten completely.
