Yeah, an anonymous user in a Reddit thread said something and it would have been entirely too much effort to track down little details like the name of the company, the name of the man, a representative from the HR department, or anything else based on anything remotely resembling a "fact." The fact that articles like this are allowed to be published by actual news sites is why so many people are so profoundly stupid -- they've become entirely too standard for what we accept as something to discuss as something that actually happened.

There's a few things odd about this.

#2. Grow the fark up, work is not high school.

i worked with a raw vegan far a couple years.  If he was in a stall and you walked in you couldn't stand to be in there for more than a single breath.  also based on the noises he was making he must have been building bricks in his colon.  not sure how that happens with all the fiber he was pounding down.

Nothing against your that friend, but if you actually were having de bellota Iberian hams at that bar and not just pictures, I need to know where right now because I haven't had any for months. We were supposed to travel to Spain in June, until this whole Coronavirus mess ruined it for... well... just about everyone.

I used to run a wine club at the bank where I was working. We had a few hundred members and we'd get together to taste new wine and then use our buying power to negotiate better prices. it was great. Plus since I did all the buying I was more than a little welcome when I went into wine stores.

I had a glass of wine in a bar like that on a business trip to Spain and it was absolutely disgusting.  Never mind the fact that I found the thought of nicotine smoked ham to be completely disgusting, but the damn things were dripping juices onto the table because the staff had neglected to empty the juice cups stuck into the lower ends of each ham.

The ham itself is absolutely delightful when it's not dripping into my wine.

The meat club could have easily ignored the vegan club as it didn't concern them. Definitely a situation where everyone involved is an asshole. If the first group just had an open "Vegan and vegetarian recipes and restaurants group" - cool. If the second group just and an open "BBQ and steak recipes and restaurants group" - cool, too. Sounds like both were more about "lifestyle" than they were about food.

Tell you what. I'm going to start the normal balanced diet club. Anyone can be a member but they will be expected to eat a normal array of fish, chicken, beef, fruits, grains, and vegetables. People with religious or medical reasons can exempt themselves from certain foods otherwise you'll be expected to sample everything with an open mind and not be a judgmental a-hole.

How to deal with Vegans, say the following:

"I admire your commitment. It's not something I would do."

It acknowledges their need to be special and at the same time level sets that you're not interested.

Actually other than people between the ages of 10-30 most of the vegan types I know are very quiet. It's a lifestyle to them not a statement.

In general, humans in their natural evolved state are obligate omnivores.  There is no, and never has been any environment on Earth where you can survive long term on a wholly vegan or wholly carnivorous diet with what is naturally available in that environment.

It is only modern technology that allows you to do either in a relatively healthy way.

Personally, I prefer not to deny evolution.  I eat plants *AND* animals.

Sometimes I'll have an all-plant meal, even a vegan one.  Sometimes I'll have pretty much all meat, but usually it's a mixture of both.

I used to have a friend/coworker who started vegetarian and then shifted into veganism after some bad experience with an egg that she never elaborated upon.

This led to a moment in a conversation where I was making an offhand comment about how there are no absolute rules for living and we're all just cobbling together our own idiosyncratic standards and value systems as we go along, which concluded with the line 'like a vegan with a leather sofa,' something she did indeed have, and big and beautiful one. Well, she just froze and stared at me, mouth hanging open, not knowing whether to be indignant or embarrassed, seeming to have never considered the deep incongruity of it before.

Exactly. It's a dumpster fire of a sub with nothing but inflammatory and emotional half truths. I picture some 9 year old writing a diatribe about not getting ice cream the night before because he was grounded but he writes it like "Yesterday I was imprisoned again and wasn't allowed to eat anything. I only asked for a calcium containing meal because my bones are brittle but my request was denied. Previously in the day I had accidentally spoken loudly to my Mother figure but she claims I verbally accosted her and that was when the illegal imprisonment began. At this point I am planning to submit my claims of abuse to DHS. AITA Reddit?"

CSB: I have a nice picture of Iberian hams hanging in a bar that I had printed and I have on the wall of my dining room. A friend of my ex insisted that I take it down, or she'd leave the party I was hosting. I simply said, "Goodbye!"

Nothing against your that friend, but if you actually were having de bellota Iberian hams at that bar and not just pictures, I need to know where right now because I haven't had any for months. We were supposed to travel to Spain in June, until this whole Coronavirus mess ruined it for... well... just about everyone.


I was so happy when it was legalized in Canada! Before Covid, I could get it at my local market - maybe try here:  https://lolaandmiguel.com/

Not sure if it's the same place, but "Bar Mas Jamon" is near where I usually stay when going to Madrid on business.  It's one of those places that sounds like a good idea but looks like a real dive from the outside.

dittybopper: In general, humans in their natural evolved state are obligate omnivores.  There is no, and never has been any environment on Earth where you can survive long term on a wholly vegan or wholly carnivorous diet with what is naturally available in that environment.


Some of the plains areas in the Midwest and Africa are the rare exceptions.  It would often be years before the nomadic groups got back to areas where there were things like berries. I read something long ago about the great plains and the carrying capacity was linked to basic veggie based nutrients.   Apparently bison have higher levels of trace minerals than cattle but that goes away when they can't roam over thousands of miles of land.

tinderfitles: UNC_Samurai: I had a regular customer at a gaming store years ago who was almost a pure carnivore.  Nice guy, but his aversion to green vegetables meant that you could smell his diet emanating from his pores.

To be fair, gaming stores patrons have their own....uh..."unique" diet and smells.


There was a clerk at a gaming store I used to play yu gi oh at (Yes im a nerd) he was a "vegetarian" but only ate potatoes pasta and bread stuff and cheese because he was picky.
I once watched him eat a mashed potato sandwich with cheese on white bread.
I hope hes still alive.

If it was just so they have somewhere to eat, why did they ban people who aren't vegetarian/vegan/piscetarian? The group statement included all dinner options will be vegan.

If they only eat vegan stuff at the group outings, what is so hard about taking a "meat eater" along who will not eat meat at the outing? They could have chosen not to be exclusionary.

It is also relevant that the company subsidizes these groups to an extent. So why wouldn't they start a "life style" group for themselves now that dinner/lunch clubs have basically been given a green light?

Fairly arrogant of one to assume that a vegan has "created their own dietary restrictions".

First, that assumes that there aren't any health benefits that they need in order counter some other health issue they may have.

Second, that assumes that societal 'norms' must be everyone's 'norms' too and amounts forced assimilation despite whether or not it's better for you to be vegan.

If you'll notice, those 'norms' are changing, becoming more inclusive. The way it should be as society evolves to include more health, life, and earth conscious people.

How did you get that from my post? They created the exclusionary group, they shouldn't whine when other people create a group as well. There is no reason for them to have banned people who eat meat outside of the meals they have with the group.

DON.MAC: dittybopper: In general, humans in their natural evolved state are obligate omnivores.  There is no, and never has been any environment on Earth where you can survive long term on a wholly vegan or wholly carnivorous diet with what is naturally available in that environment.

Some of the plains areas in the Midwest and Africa are the rare exceptions.  It would often be years before the nomadic groups got back to areas where there were things like berries. I read something long ago about the great plains and the carrying capacity was linked to basic veggie based nutrients.   Apparently bison have higher levels of trace minerals than cattle but that goes away when they can't roam over thousands of miles of land.


There are *NO* exceptions.

There is no plant-based version of vitamin B12 that is able to be processed by the human digestive system, and lack of B12 will eventually lead to pernicious anemia:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vitamin​_​B12_deficiency_anemia

In the short term (ie., up to a handful of years - liver stores up to 5 years of B12) you can get away with it.  So if you're on a deserted island eating fruit will keep you going for a relatively long time, but after a year or two, I'd start looking for animal based food.

Just watch out for ciguatera.

On the flip side, there are few sources of available Vitamin C in animal sources, and cooking destroys all of them, so if you're trying not to get parasites/other diseases.   So you eventually develop scurvy if you don't eat any plants.

One unconventional source of Vitamin C if you find yourself in a place where there are no plants with fruits that contain it are pine needles.   Steeping pine needles in hot water makes a tea that contains something like 4 times the amount of Vitamin C as fresh squeezed orange juice.

Your pet dog and cat(especially) need meat. Any real gardener knows you have to trap and kill rabbits, gophers, etc. to protect your vegetables. Feral cats generally live miserable lives, and both feral and pet cats kill tons of birds. So if they're talking about all animals wanting to live, it's more accurate to describe it as a circular battle between the animals in that poster, adding in humans and the animals that DO prey on us in Africa and Asia where we aren't on top of the food chain anymore.

Youtube y7rFYbMhcG8


Well woke up this morning with a wine glass in my hand
Whose wine, what wine, where the hell did I dine?
Must have been a dream I don't believe where I've been
Come on, let's do it again
Do you, you, feel like I do? (how'd ya feel?)
Do you, you, feel like I do?

Vegetarianism is a diet.
Veganism is a religion.

tom baker's scarf: arrogantbastich: I bet the bathrooms there are a battleground of horrible smells and noises.

i worked with a raw vegan far a couple years.  If he was in a stall and you walked in you couldn't stand to be in there for more than a single breath.  also based on the noises he was making he must have been building bricks in his colon.  not sure how that happens with all the fiber he was pounding down.


I would imagine all the overprocessed grains he was eating that were made to taste like meat.  All the binding agents they use in those products can also bind up your colon.

And the meat eating suare organizer is a dummy.

I can pretty much guarantee you that there are no carnivores in that office and if there is, they should likely seek a gastroenterologist.

/Not Vegan

I thought I was learning a new word with suare. I think you meant soirée, right?

My bad, it was posted before coffee cup was empty. Yes, and I'm not even sure why I tried because I knew the word had one of those fancy "e"s in it. So I already knew I was spelling it incorrectly and posted anyway.

/Not an excuse
//just how A got to B
//as usual


Don't apologize to those speling Nazis, yu spel the wai yu want.

I can honestly say that none of my cats have killed a bird.

Persians are too farkin' expensive to let outside.

Plus, their fur knots up quick enough without them getting into burdocks and crap like that.


You need to quit teasing them on the other side of the glass, look at their poor noses and faces and such.  That's really mean.

Dead for Tax Reasons: they're both assholes

vegans should've welcomed everyone and just had meals that were vegan and maybe meat eaters would be curious and change their diet.  not to mention the pescatarian angle makes it all bullshiat, fish is meat dipshiats

the meat club was only made in reaction to the other club to be dicks, not as an actual thing


This was my thought.  However, if the vegan club let anyone join, you know damn well that the asshole who started the meat club would have joined and made dinner miserable for everyone else, just because they are that kind of asshole.

Finally my opportunity to start a balanced diet club. If you don't eat a balanced diet you're not welcome!!1!

dittybopper: Dork Gently: dittybopper: ingo: I had a glass of wine in a bar like that on a business trip to Spain and it was absolutely disgusting.

Whose wine, what wine, where the Hell did you dine?

Not sure if it's the same place, but "Bar Mas Jamon" is near where I usually stay when going to Madrid on business.  It's one of those places that sounds like a good idea but looks like a real dive from the outside.

Sigh.......

Has just gone vegan;
I offered her some bacon and now we're not speaking.

To join the vegan club, how many salads do you have to toss?
/Not vegan.

The  vegan could have easily ignored the meat eaters club as it didn't concern them. As usual, the vegan is double the asshole.

I had no idea reincarnation was so fast. Did you know Mr. Brimley, that he chose your household?

Me: Har har har, here's another post about how vegans are always talking about being a vegan
Wife: Ask a meat eater about bacon. You'll see who suddenly can't shut up about their diet

Prank Call of Cthulhu: Why would you hire a vegan? How would you expect them to get anything done without them running around constantly bragging about how they're vegan?

/If we're not supposed to eat animals, how come they're made out of meat?


Surprisingly not all vegans are assholes. At the call center I used to work at I had several vegan co-workers that were cool, and one that was the epitome of a veganahole. Our receptionist was raised vegetarian, but went vegan in his 20s, but he never discussed it. Neither he nor the cool vegan co-workers tried to push their dietary preferences on anyone.

I was a housesitter for a couple of my vegan co-workers who had 3 sons and they let them all make their own dietary choices. Oldest son (16) was vegetarian, middle son (14) and younger son (11) ate meat occasionally, which their parents willingly bought them. The only request they had was not to use the cookware/utensils they used for preparing their vegan meals, which IMHO was a legit request. They had cookware/utensils in a separate cupboard for their sons to use.

Wait, Vegans will put up with other vegetarians, and even piscatorians? I thought they wree Superior to the others....

And why do they need a "support group" - are the ones in that office that insecure in their food choices?

My vegan wife is married to a pescatarian.

All that has happened in the article is that some like-minded people wanted to be able to choose a restaurant that would offer them more choices. Doing so in a manner barring meat-eating folks from having any influence over said decisions as that dietary choice limits the number of places those vegans and other vegetarians would otherwise visit.

Nobody is insecure about their food choices, it just seems as though some omnivorous types were offended by this exclusion and decided to have their own club.

/Seems pedantic of both sides to me

Vegan is not a protected class.
But tell them 'not a good fit', not 'go away herbivore'.
Honesty is dumb.

dittybopper: UNC_Samurai: I had a regular customer at a gaming store years ago who was almost a pure carnivore.  Nice guy, but his aversion to green vegetables meant that you could smell his diet emanating from his pores.

In general, humans in their natural evolved state are obligate omnivores.  There is no, and never has been any environment on Earth where you can survive long term on a wholly vegan or wholly carnivorous diet with what is naturally available in that environment.

It is only modern technology that allows you to do either in a relatively healthy way.

Personally, I prefer not to deny evolution.  I eat plants *AND* animals.

Sometimes I'll have an all-plant meal, even a vegan one.  Sometimes I'll have pretty much all meat, but usually it's a mixture of both.


The Inuit eat an almost exclusively meat diet. 10 months/year pure carnivore, 2 months/year they can find a few berries. Kinison Move to where the food is! /Kinison

Yeah, but again: the group's statement included that all meals would be vegan. They had no reason to exclude non-vegans, non-vegetarians, or non- piscetarians if they wanted to make sure they got sufficient vegan options to at the place they were going to eat.

The rules of the group already sufficed for that.

They want to be assholes and make sure no one eats meat around them.  So much tolerance!
