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.

Found the vegan.

There is almost always something vegetarian at a restaurant, and in any case, they are the ones who have created their own dietary restrictions.

And as has already been noted, they made their little club, then explicitly banned any meat-eaters from joining it. It would have been an excellent opportunity to introduce us evil omnivores to the joys of veganism, but that was hardly the point of the group, was it?

Found the jackass who speaks without knowing wtf they're talking about. :-D
Nope, but I've watched enough people go through that with various eating requirements. I know the "Dining out with coworkers while having special dietary needs" routine well. Yeah obviously they only had other Vegans, they're eating together to address their specific dietary requirements, not trying to push their diet on others. Of course you sound like you got a hateboner for vegans to begin with so you would likely flip your shiat were they inviting non vegans along and only eating at vegan restaurants. So how seriously can I take your opinion on them really?


-
...eating requirements
...dietary needs
...dietary requirements


Choices. The word you are dancing around is "choices".

Allergies, Crohn's disease, and celiac disease create requirements and needs. Their self-important, faux-virtuous bullshiat does not. These people are the culinary equivalent of entitled twunts with purse dogs wearing "emotional support animal" vests.

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. Thing was, she was militantly vegan in her diet, to the extent that she expected everyone else to also be vegetarian at the very least when around her, but that mindset didn't extend to all areas of her life apart from what she ate. 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. It was something to see, a person having a sudden jarring moment of clarity about an enormous inconsistency they had been living with - vegan, railed against their circus, loved her leather couch. I don't know how she reconciled it, the subject never came up again.

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?

Yes I get it, Vegans exsisting give you a big ol sad. grow the fark up.


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.

The vegans set themselves apart. Others merely accomodated the vegans.

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 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Yes I get it, Vegans exsisting give you a big ol sad. grow the fark up.


Not sure how being more open to ideas makes someone else the immature one.

I also don't know if vegans is a brand name to you but they're certainly not exsisting.

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.

So basically someone starts a vegan group because they were tired of always ending up at restaurants with nothing to eat and having their coworkers then deride them as if they are the asshole for their diet and their dickhead coworker couldn't let it go and started a group, not to address any real problems, but rather to shiat on someone who was just trying to be able to eat. Yeah meatclub guy as a dipshiat who deserves all the scorn they receive and need to grow the fark up.

You're not the asshole, but you're an asshole.  But to be fair, I think more clubs should exclude vegans.  It's a good way to keep out some the grievance farmers.

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.

Voiceofreason01: Everything posted to the aita subreddit is fake


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?"

peachpicker: Ktonos: aagrajag: 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?

I'd never hire one; they're ambulatory HR problems and lawsuits waiting to happen.

Vegetarians are fine, but vegans always have an axe to grind.

Vegetarians don't eat meat.
Vegans don't want you to eat meat.

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. Thing was, she was militantly vegan in her diet, to the extent that she expected everyone else to also be vegetarian at the very least when around her, but that mindset didn't extend to all areas of her life apart from what she ate. 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. It was something to see, a person having a sudden jarring moment of clarity about an enormous inconsistency they had been living with - vegan, railed against their circus, loved her leather couch. I don't know how she reconciled it, the subject never came up again.

flucto: tuxq: There's a few things odd about this.

#1. Who wants to be around their co-workers so much that they start a club?

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

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.

Well, that sounds like a net win.

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.
