Dated a vegan once. Never doing that again, couldn't stand listening to her telling me all the things that's wrong with the world.

Soy alternatives have come a long way, but as a former roommate of a vegan, I have to say it's ******* annoying hearing the banter. Whether they're right or wrong doesn't even matter once they start annoying me because I won't listen either way.

I loved teasing her whenever I ate meat with her family, just to see if I could start that whole "meat is murder" speech. Worked every single time. It was priceless to see the anger and rage build up inside of her, me and her dad had some good laughs about that.

Pescetarians (usually called vegetarians anyway but they eat seafood) are the ones who are supposed to live longer, because they eat more balanced diet and get enough protein through the fish.

Vegans dont. They dont eat diary OR meat, so they dont get iron, protein, calcium etc easy.
User avatar #155 to #21 - nogphille (06/11/2013) [-]
BS
1. protein is in everything we eat
2. iron is found in soy, spinach etc.
3. tofu and milk from nuts, soymilk etc contains calcium too.

people who think being vegan means living unhealthy are ignorant.

check my other message above..
being a vegetarian/vegan means having to look into your food more and planning your meals more thoroughly than you normally would.
however, ALL nutrients, minerals and vitamins can be found in substitutes.

protein is actually found in everything you eat.. just in much lower percentages..

seriously, look into nutritional values of food..

being a GOOD vegan is healthier than being omnivore.
User avatar #185 to #179 - Shramin ONLINE (06/11/2013) [-]

What I hate about peta vegans and the whole meat is murder thing,
They ignore the fact that many animals today are kept from going extinct because there is demand for their meat. Bison today are making a come back today because their meat is very lean which is valued in the current health food trend. Without it there would be no reason to raise these animals.
Some animals today lack the ability to care of themselves (like cows) and would not make it in the wild today. So by eating them we create demand by creating demand we create a reason to help these animals live on.
And finally not eating meat has major draw backs on your health, children who are breast fed from vegan mothers who do not take supplements can kill the child from malnutrition and people who don't take the supplements are increased risk for illnesses related to the lack of certain nutrients.
Rant over.

Also, Cows and Chickens would be extinct if we didn't eat them, as they are already extinct in the wild. Pigs will be fine, but humans won't. After about a month of being released into the wild, "Domestic" pigs revert to "Wild" boars. The grow thick, bristly fur, huge tusks, and can grow to massive sizes. They're also omnivorous and predators, meaning if they shut down the meat industry and release the animals, Cows and chickens will go extinct, and people will be left fighting for their lives against millions of man-eating boars.

A bullet through the brain is typically a kill, especially when the brain is the size of a coconut. But hey, hogs/boars/pigs are pretty ******* smart.
User avatar #102 to #98 - sirbutterballs (06/11/2013) [-]
Not to mention that boars are pretty feisty. A charging 1,000+ boar sounds quite terrifying. Although I imagine he caught it by surprise.

Boars kill and eat bears, I'm pretty sure he caught it unaware or sleeping.
User avatar #80 to #40 - trollmobile ONLINE (06/11/2013) [-]
that's an old hunter's trick
you see the real size by looking at the crossbow, the guy behind isn't sitting right behind it, he's sitting a meter or more behind it, makes the kill look bigger in the photo.

same is done in fishing, you hold the fish on stretched out arms, makes it look bigger in comparison to yourself.
User avatar #93 to #80 - heartlessrobot (06/11/2013) [-]

It will take thousands of years for pigs to evolve like that...

But I agree that all the animals, because they aren't prepared for the wild, will most likely go extinct
User avatar #36 to #35 - heartlessrobot (06/11/2013) [-]
They don't evolve, the revert. They're always ready to go back, but something in their minds tells their body to stay pink and fleshy. Once they are released into the wild, they begin to change into boars.

Supply and demand, how do they work?
User avatar #46 to #45 - heartlessrobot (06/11/2013) [-]

You missed the point entirely
User avatar #51 to #47 - heartlessrobot (06/11/2013) [-]
There will always be demand, that's MY point. And the demand for meat in every first world country is very high.
User avatar #55 to #51 - carnagejc (06/11/2013) [-]
My point was that if everyone stopped eating meat there would not be the same supply of it. There would not be wasted meat. (Of course there would then be millions of times more veg waste)

User avatar #57 to #55 - heartlessrobot (06/11/2013) [-]
Well, if you'll look at my other comment (wall of text) you'll see why it would be a bad idea. Also, billions would die of starvation and the worldwide economy would collapse in it's entirety, as the meat industry is massive and employs millions and millions of people.
User avatar #58 to #57 - carnagejc (06/11/2013) [-]

But srsly, guys. You do know that being a vegetarian has a tremendously positive effect on the enviroment?
I don't believe in caring for the animals and that stuff, because I believe in the ecological pyramid. But the reason I'm a vegetarian is because at this point, humanity is toying with evolution. You know something's wrong when chickens are given hormones at birth to grow faster. Chickens given hormones grow so fast that at one point, their bones simply break because they can't take the unproportional weight.
Also, the meat industry is horrifyingly cruel towards the workers. In my local store, I can get a pack of lamb chops for 14 NOK (approx. $2). Imagine what the hell they've done to oush the prices so low. The store takes about 50% profit, so that means they've bought the lamb chops for a single ******* dollar. What kind of food have they given that animal to make profit? More important, what kind of **** salary are the poor workers given?

So. That's why I'm a vegetarian. We're ******* toying with evolution at this point, guys.
User avatar #152 to #81 - alphawolffifteen (06/11/2013) [-]
Actually the environmental effects of reserving huge plots of lands for animals is extremely inefficient, and the gas consumed transporting meat to a freezing and packaging facility is outrageous. Food could be produced MUCH more efficiently if the land used to raise animals was farm land, and we'd all be a lot healthier too!
The only reason I'm not a vegetarian is the fact that I just cannot stomach the taste of any vegetable...and most fruits.
User avatar #86 to #81 - godtherapist (06/11/2013) [-]
No, you're an idiot. Being vegetarian has nothing to do with environmental concerns.

All the things you pointed out are based up current market standards for the treatment and cost of the cattle we currently grow. By simply changing that which we eat to different cattle and how we raise it those same concerns disappear.

For example, raising fish in a tank costs exceedingly more money than just fishing it out in the wild, and while current fishing laws are terrible if we were to agree on a better international standard the consumption of fish would cause very little impact on the world.

On the same lines, we could trade in Cow meat for Insect meat. Insects are a much better source of protein and are much easier to grow and process.

TLR you are talking about socio-economic problems, not meat problems.
User avatar #96 to #86 - sirchaudhry **User deleted account** (06/11/2013) [-]
Woops, it looks like i forgot to mention the enviromental part.
In short terms, it's like this: Imagine the sick amount of land you would need to grow cattle, and how much food you would need to make sure the cattle grew. Now compare that to the amount of resources you would need to grow any vegetable. The amount of carbondioxide released into the air due to meat industry is tremendously big.

Also, do you have any examples of -how- we would "change that which we eat to different cattle", when all of the meat industry runs in the same way?

Tl; Dr: Every component in society is relative to another one.

that's ******* ********* , releasing carbon dioxide doesnt do jack **** , humans havent even contributed half as much as natural emissions have, www.skepticalscience.com/human-co2-smaller-than-natural-emissions.htm, also if you're making the reference that cow carbon dioxide emissions contribute to global warming, then you're an idiot, global warming is false, it's just earth going through the natural cycles, and these cow emissions probably dont even contribute to even half of one percent of the total carbon dioxide emissions, i do agree for your other reasons to be a vegetarian but this one is asinine

No I didn't. I said that plants have their own list of problems.

Alright, since you're clearly not one of the "reasonable" types, allow me to put it bluntly.

I'm fully aware that natural fishing is possible. It's by no means difficult. I'm not here to give "all fish a bad rep" whatsoever. In fact, you're the one who brought up fish. I was only giving you a few of the reasons why I have no interest in buying/consuming them. I do my research through peer-reviewed articles and respected publications.

being aggressive on the internet? oh sorry women if I scared you. your facts are intangible and damn right lame. Im trying to convince you that eating meat because of substantial PETA published reasons is idiotic. it sounds like you dont eat meat or fish because your lazy.

I could same lazy crap like i wont eat store fruit and veg because its grown in a chemical field of pesticides which was made my destroying the habitats of moles, rodents and other field animals. I could say I dont want store crops because their crop machines dont stop when animals are in them and will just crush them and grind them along with the other plants. im sorry that you cant enjoy meat or fish because its damn right delicious and simple to access food.

However, because they are bred to produce so fast and their breast meat is so large, nearly 100% of all broilers are artificially inseminated because they can't do it themselves. And about the price of meat, it is so cheap because lamb is a low price producer and other parts of the lamb are being profited off of, in net of the carcass, it's more of a profit than you think. And by the way, we've been toying with evolution for centuries since we started using horses and dogs. It's nothing new. I'm going to continue eating meat because 1) I like the taste 2) Even if I chose not to, they would still produce animal product, but it'd be thrown away and wasted. All of this is based off of my animal sciences class at OSU.

Thank you, so much. We've definitely ****** up the natural order of things in the environment. I'm not a vegetarian, but I only eat hormone-free meat, because what they do to both the animals and workers is disgustingly cruel. We may have to kill animals for food, but they shouldn't have to live their lives as immovable and broken creatures simply so the industry can make a greater profit. They're doing the same thing with crops too, and it's destroying the landscape and putting countless farmers out of work.

Technically, vegetarians are the murderers. if they refuse to eat meat given to them, then they are murdering since that animal was killed with no purpose. that animal was killed for the intent of being consumed, but they refuse to eat it, making the meat have no purpose of killing.

At least make a difference between vegan and vegetarian

Wow, vegans are assholes.

Except that by taking the meat the cycle of grow, kill, buy, serve, eat is continued since nobody would be willing to break any point of the cycle since the animal was killed for you to eat, you eat it, then more meat is needed for the next meal rather then lesson learned. If your going to make an argument use real rational rather then circular logic.

ever heard of supply / demand balance? And this guy got 47 thumbs up. This site is full of idealistic idiots.
#168 to #16 - nubcase (06/11/2013) [-]
It's so that because there is a lower demand for meat, producers make less of it, killing less animals in the future.

Sooo, killing something WITH a purpose is not murder?
User avatar #37 to #16 - scorcho ONLINE (06/11/2013) [-]
dat logic. so if i kill your dog and you refuse to eat it, you are responsible for it's death? I'm not a vegetarian, but that argument is just stupid.

what kind of logic is this? enough to get thumbed up 13 times...

No, it wasn't killed by them and it wasn't killed for them. Generally, animals will be reared to meet demand for meat so if they are abstaining from eating meat then they are reducing demand and probably meaning that less animals are killed.   
   
I'm not a veggie, but you're a moron.

The meat industry won't account for vegetarians, because there is no way of telling exactly how many there are. They do however try to account for religious diets, because its easier to tell how many Jews and Muslims aren't eating pork. But they mainly go by population and last years demand.
User avatar #28 to #26 - Hayzer (06/11/2013) [-]
Exactly, and demand is different due to vegetarians not buying meat, so they change their output.
User avatar #33 to #28 - TastyBurger (06/11/2013) [-]
Its a much lengthier process than that. If the demand for meat in store goes down, there's a good chance that they might buy less meat from the distributors. But a few stores buying slightly less meat than normal from the distributors isn't going to make the farmers to produce less meat. Farmers get paid by the government to grow a certain amount of food to feed the population. It would take decades and vegetarians/vegans to take up a pretty large portion of the population for them to start factoring them in.

But as it stands now, if you stopped eating meat, animals will still be killed for you.

I don't eat plants either because it takes time and effort to grow as a plant and I can't tune out the screams of plants being killed while I eat them.
people are fine though, because they eat meat and are dirty, planet ruining beasts
