That's the problem with Vegans: You can't just Fark 'em and leave them. They just keep coming back to share the joy of Veganism.

Vegans needs to be pouring their money and energy into developing vat grown meat. Far more productive then whatever the hell this is.

France will artichoke under the pressure, unfortunately for the west the vegans will probably kale them.

A vegan once attacked me with a can of peas. That's why I now always carry a can opener to defend myself.

I want to be a vegan. It's just that animals are so damned tasty.

Is subby implying there are non-militant vegans?

I appreciate the French for helping us win the Revolutionary War.

But there's a point where "revolting" changes definitions.

*le sigh*

I know quite a few vegetarians who don't run around trying to convert people. I don't know any quiet vegans.

Just leave me and everyone else alone please?
 
2018-09-12 06:20:35 PM  
Speciesism? So we should treat all species equally? That means we can eat humans.

And which humans are likely to taste bests? Vegans.
 
2018-09-12 06:27:14 PM  
This is unsurprising. Vegan activism is like anti-abortion activism. They think they are saving the defenseless. Which will inevitable lead to violence and vegan terrorism.

Did you know that most people don't even know the difference between 'vegan' and 'strict vegetarianism'?
'Veganism' is an entire lifestyle that includes no products of any kind that have any animal origins whatsoever. No leather, for instance. Nothing you own can have any part of it that ever came from an animal. 'Strict vegetarianism' is just the diet part.

Veganism is bullshiat, plain and simple. Humans have been evolving into omnivores for probably a million years now, and we're still evolving in that direction (much in the same way we're constantly evolving to walk upright on two legs). You can't just turn back the evolutionary clock with a mere 'moral choice'. There's more stories and studies than I have time or space to talk about that show that a 'strict vegetarian diet' is NOT healthy for humans, and actually over the long term is harmful.

Note that 'veganism' at it's core has nothing to do with human health; it's all about placing animals above humans on the food chain, putting them first, and to Hell with what it does to human health, so far as their pro-animal agenda is satisfied.

Seems like every vegan I've ever known (and I've known more than a few) has some weird health problem(s) or other. A few that I know who were vegan for years, then decided to go back to eating meat and other animal products, had those weird little health problems go away. Coincidence? I think not.

No, not quite nuts like that but there are seemingly endless ways for vegans to be nuts. I admire and respect the principles behind people embracing veganism, though those same thoughts do not carry over to the bullshiat such things often inspire.

You know the surrender monkey part of cheese eating surrender monkey is kind of out of line.  Cheese eating is good though, just like the beer swilling Germans and the ...uh...boiled meat skarfing English(?).  They really eat a lot of cheese in France though.  I watched Anthony Bordain (RIP) and Eric Ripert (sorry you had to find your friend like that), eating cheese in France that was pretty much fondue at room temp.  shiat looked killer.  I think it was Eric Ripert, they were visiting someones mom in France.

Veganism is the survival of the cute, what is noble about that cause?  Vegetarian diets kill far more creatures than corniberous diet.  You think those soy bean pastures are just going to be left alone without a little help from pestacides or benevelant (read murderous) insects?  Vegans are nothing but contract killers of the lowest order (pun intended).

Fact: Vegans on Facebook are the farking worst condescending twat waffles.
Read in Sam Kinison's loud voice:

*Look at the picture of the amazing vegan meal I am eating
*Look at this auto play video of this animal being slaughtered
*Read this article by Dr. Greenballs who is aligned with my way of thinking. The Vegan way is the only way!

I once met a militant vegan
Her name if I recall was Meagan
I took her to lunch
And I got a punch
Our thing ended before it began

Homo sapiens wouldn't exist if our predecessor species were vegan.  Vegans can argue against this all they want but, it's true.

You should have just grabbed them and spun them around.  Then you could have brought about whirled peas.

There are plenty of quiet vegans who go about their business and keep to themselves. Sadly there is a good sized, very vocal minority that deserves all of the hate. Literally just yesterday I was at a tasting room drinking cider with my sister and a couple of her friends, my sister also had her dog with her who was laying quietly on the patio (the place is dog friendly). A girl at the next table started making noises and we ignored her, only for the girl to loudly ask "Are you going to eat your dog too?" and go into a rant about speciesism. She was of course promptly told to go fark herself with an eggplant but if you get a few encounters like this people tend to not care how many vegans quietly go about their day.

We also have a local pastor who styles himself after the Westboro Baptist church in town, there are plenty of christians who quietly go about life not judging but you get that one asshole on the street saying "fags are going to hell" and calling single moms "whores" and it ruins things for them.
