Angry, incoherent veggie rage [Nov. 30th, 2006|01:17 pm]

You know? I have HAD it with meat-eaters. I have spent my entire life worrying about, I don't know, somehow offending someone who eats meat because I don't eat meat (because that's how they always act), and I am SICK of it. I never used to be one of those angry vegetarians, but OH BOY YOU BET I'M ONE NOW.

I am SICK of people launching into a disgusting, graphic description of how much they like meat when they find out I'm veggie. And surprise surprise, it's always men who do this. What, do they think I'm going to infect them with my womany, tofu-eating ways and their balls are going to drop off unless they go on and on about how manly they are for loving their steak to be so rare it bleeds all over their plate?! SHUT THE FUCK UP, YOU ARE DISGUSTING AND NOT FUNNY IN THE LEAST. The next time this happens oh BOY I'm not going to worry about hurting anyone's feelings. Because you know what? It offends me when people eat meat. It's horrible and gross and how can you sleep at night knowing you consume the dead flesh of animals that were slaughtered in horrifying ways for your benefit?

It was one thing back in the day when humans were all Neanderthals and only had little stone spears to hunt with, because at least then the animals had a fighting chance. But nowadays it's not even fair. The animals people eat are so completely at our mercy, bred specifically to be eaten and kept in captivity their whole lives until it's time for them to be killed and chopped into pieces. And meat-eaters don't even question this. To them animals are just there for our consumption and that's so human-centric it makes me sick. People are not the center of the universe, you asshats. Get a life. Humans do not need to eat meat to survive. There are so many protein sources available to us at the freaking grocery store, from peanut butter to beans to lentils, and you don't need as much of it as you think. Even when we didn't have grocery stores people got along just fine without eating meat, I mean, tons of people in Asia have been doing it for hundreds of years. Not eating vegetables is FAR AND AWAY less healthy than not eating meat. The time of my life when I've felt the least healthy was when I ate chicken for about a year. Urgh.

And I am sick and fucking tired of there only being one thing on any menu that I can eat because everyone else insists upon being gross. And that's really what's gotten me so angry, is the Garrett Food Court slowly chipping away at the vegetarian options and frying perfectly vegetarian things in meat grease and teasing us with things like tubs of hummus and then taking them away. ALL I WANT IS A FUCKING TOMATO SANDWICH. IS THAT SO HARD? But nooooooooo, they have to slap MEAT on everything, otherwise it's noooooot foooooood! FUCK ALL OF YOU PEOPLE.

And I am SO not sorry when these motherfuckers die of cholesterol poisoning and heart attacks and blood clots because they just can't risk looking wussy by eating things that are good for them! Ohhhh, did I say that? HAHA.

Hear hear! Fuck all of 'em!

Oooh! I totally socially policed someone the other day. This dude at work was all like "I drink a gallon of milk a day!" or something gross like that, and I was like "Actually! Milk isn't very digestable for the human body and so you don't get many real nutrients out of drinking it." And he was all "O_O Seriously? And I was all "Yeah. Humans are the only animals who drink milk from other species and drink it after weaning. ^_^" And he was all "Oh. O_o"

Sorry. Took over your thing there. But still, cool-awesome rage and you win at life.

Haha, we totally need to start policing people who eat meat. Like, counter the "Do you get enough protein???" thing with, "Do you get enough Vitamin A/B/C/fiber?" I need to learn more facts about the health risks of eating meat. My favourite thing is the thing about how humans' digestive systems aren't made to handle red meat, and it ends up rotting in one's intestines. :D

This is the best rage that I've seen in a while. I totally support it and will gladly join you as one of those angry vegetarians. I'm so fucking tired of all of these Kentucky rednecks who only know how to eat the beefs.
I seriously sometimes get pissed and disgusted at all of these good ole' boy frat guys who order beef and then put cheese on it and then put beef on the cheese and then put even more cheese on the second layer of beef. How gross can you be? >P
If these people want beef so much, I'm just going to start taking slaughtered cows and dragging the carcasses into their living rooms. That way, they would actually have to be honest about the carnage that goes into their meals. Not sure if that made much sense, but yeah, it is like, 5 a.m.

I know, seriously. I really don't think the majority of people understand exactly what it means to eat meat, you know? But what scares me is that I'm damn sure the people who work on cattle farms and in slaughterhouses eat meat. :\

You go girl ^.^ Or something like that.

I may have a tendency to eat meat myself when I'm really low on options and -have- to get protein in my system, but that's a health risk and I prefer to not have to eat the dead flesh of anything when I can help it. But I'm really starting to get to the point (especially with my options on campus >.<) as to how I'm almost not able to make the choice to not eat meat and get the protein and other nutrients I need to keep me from going X.X.

DUC Food court...I can eat a muffin, poptarts, bean burrito, cheese quesadilla, cheese pizza, or crappy pasta that doesn't fill you up at all and is way too expensive...

Garrett...crappy pasta (see above), veggie burger (no fries), taco/burrito with no chips and is way too expensive, a very small salad, maybe a piece of pizza if they have anything without meat, and rarely I can get soup >.<

It's ridiculous when you consider the fact that meat-eaters can have like 30 or 40 MORE things at both places than we can.

Yeah. That really pisses me off. And, what's even more infuriating, is that meat eaters are perfectly able to eat vegetarian food. If the food courts offered things that didn't have meat, everyone could eat them. Vegetarian food is not exclusive, food with meat is. >:(
