BonesJackson: Sources on these repeated cases of permanently damaged children?Yes, growing kids need protein, fats, carbohydrates, etc. Let's not get silly though. You don't quite understand nutrition if you honestly believe a child can't grow up healthy without the aid of animal proteins. Just because some nutters do it wrong (if they actually do--or are you arguing on a personal inkling you don't expect to be called out on?) doesn't mean it's unquestionably impossible.
lasercannon: "The mother's barrister, Byron James, argued on appeal that the reintroduction of so much contact after such a long break was 'too sudden and too steep a progression' and was likely to cause both the boy and his mother emotional harm."Fark you lady. You didn't consider the emotional impact when you cut off all contact did you?
TuteTibiImperes: You don't force exclusionary diets on five year olds unless there is a medically necessary reason. If the father isn't vegetarian he has every right to serve meat when his son is in his care, and I suppose the mother has the right to serve him vegetarian fare when he is in hers as long as it isn't resulting in health concerns for the kid.
Mister Buttons: Croooow!: D) All of the above. (He hit him with meat porn)[i.imgur.com image 267x400]
enik: Vegetarians being sanctimonious douchebags? Never.
IBreakdance2NIN: Ugh. These kinds of threads always have me at war with myself.1) Mom FTFA is a twat, plain and simple.2) Kids can get by perfectly fine on a vegetarian diet if done properly, like any other human.3) When people forgo meat because they just don't like it, I'm slightly puzzled, but whatever.4) When people forgo meat because OMG IT'S MURDER, I wish they'd shut the f*ck up.5) When people forgo meat for religious or health reasons, more power to them.6) I f*cking love meat of all kinds, and yet find myself eating healthy vegetarian or vegan meals at least half the time because my body appreciates the conscious increase in nutrients, and vegetables are crazy delicious. And if you have even the slightest ability to cook, getting enough protein and fat is a cinch.7) I f*cking love meat of all kinds, but people who INSIST on meat at every single meal are twats.8) Entire cultures have sustained themselves on largely vegetarian diets for millenia and gotten by just fine. Try eating their cuisines sometime, it's generally fantastic.9) The next hippie who gives me a dirty look when I tear into a rare ribeye is getting stabbed with my fork.tl;dr People on all sides of the veg issue can often be concern trolling assholes.
HindiDiscoMonster: Here is a simple test:Do you have to use vitamins/artificial means to suppliment your nutrition?YES = you're doing it wrongNO = thumbs up
aerojockey: Zombie DJ: You know who invented salad? Poor people....Originally, salad greens served as an excuse to eat salt, in the same way tortilla chip serve as an excuse to eat salsa, or potatoes as an excuse to eat sour cream.

doglover: She'd better not be giving him pudding. How can he have any pudding if he doesn't eat his meat!?
Ringshadow: That child is going to grow up very, very stunted if not incredibly ill. There have been repeat cases of children being permanently damaged by psycho parents enforcing this kind of diet. Growing bodies need protein and dairy to properly assemble themselves. They are growing muscle and bone, if you don't give them the raw materials you are harming your kid.Piscetarian? Fine, I'll go with it. No red meat? Okay, sure, some religions do that, no harm have some fowl. No pork? Okay. No meat at all?! Insanity.Do whatever you want to your body but if you force choices on someone else's body you're a nutter./hope the kid's dad introduces him to the wonder of proper protein//hell make it organic free range protein just to be a dick about it
Klippoklondike: You don't win child custody with salad
