ScytheofLuna, I suggest you go to any Vegan/Vegetarian forum and see what they really think of us meat-eaters. I bet you'll find perhaps even more venom there than you do here.

I'm omnivorous, and always will be, but I`ve been thinking about pork lately... What pigs go through is actually really messed up. They`re more intelligent than cats and dogs and that kind of bugs me. Chickens get abused really badly, too, but how the hell am I supposed to give up KFC? I really just like meat too much. I`d never give up beef because from what I hear, they`re just shot in the head really quickly, and they live on the open range much of the time. Plus I love prime rib... *drools*

A man is characterized by his actions and not by his choices in diet. You seriously need a moment of self examination if you truly believe that eating bacon and steak makes you a man. Many ignorant destructive idiots have subsisted on meat, and we all know that certain historical figures of ill repute have been vegetarian as well. It's a dietary choice, and sometimes an ethical choice but it shouldn`t be the single defining characteristic in any person. Get over yourself and go enjoy your bacon, but perhaps you should attempt to defend your behaviour with a little tact and common sense rather than personal attacks and bad grammar. Poorly framed pseudo-science and cursing just makes you look like a fool. When you behave defensively it means that you really do believe that you`re in the wrong, and that you`re compensating.

Wow, really? Eating meat combats global warming? Really? Surely you jest. Otherwise you're forgetting the millions of acres of rain forests being leveled to make way for land to graze cattle to support the beef industry, or the huge quantities of methane being released into the atmosphere by said cattle. If you`re perspective on what it means to live is embodied in the act of eating pig carcass, I pity you. My manhood is in no way threatened by the fact that I subsist on salad and peanut butter. My genitalia doesn`t shrivel because I enjoy veggie burgers and food products that weren`t derived from animal carcasses. If that`s your justification for eating meat, it`s pretty flimsy, and I doubt that all carnivores are as shallow as you. As for the environmental impact of vegetarianism, we don`t eat trees, or subsist on anything that has a broader growing cycle than one year. Anything we eat is a renewable crop that grows again each year. Your logic is nonexistent.

You know, all I'm going to say in response to that is the following: I find it hilarious, if disturbing, that vegetarians are all portrayed as these militant, totalitarian snobs who think that they are better than everyone else, and that everyone should follow them and do as they do. Yet, I`ve not seen one statement like that on this board from any of the people who consider themselves vegetarian. Rather, those who are NOT veggie are the ones saying that everyone else is wrong, that we should all conform to their standards, and anyone who does not is foolish at best. Very interesting, indeed...
