Playing it cool, I see. 

 

Do I dare post some comments from the 'other forum'? I think they tie into vegan food/fake meats being seen as gross by omnivores. Since changes are that someone from over there will read this, this isn't intended to point out anything stupid said per se, but rather something that vegans (since vegetarians have a semi-decent acceptance rate there, but vegans, just no way) will probably see as funny. I am a vegan and I giggle when I read it.

I found them funny because vegan food can be and is very often very yummy. And hardy, if you know how. Also, the confusing with the star made me literally break out laughing.

I've given up on trying to make things right over there. I was honest and am being accused of lying, being a hypocrite, and backpedaling. I tried, I really did. I wasn't trying to be mean.

Yeah, it sucks what happened. I think they don't exactly get that veg*nism is more than just what you eat, and it is a lifestyle of trying to minimize animal deaths. Well, sorry about how it all went down, I don't think you were in the wrong, and considering a lot of the things they were saying, you kept pretty cool about it all.

You have actually just contributed to this thread's title without realising it. You are NOT a carnivore, you are an omnivore.

I laughed at all of these.

Because Oreos taste like socks and the letter A is the depiction of the devil in the veg*n religion.

You picked out the exact posts I was going to and said pretty much the exact same thing I was--though I'd probably add "home fries cooked in oil" and "baked beans" to the list with Oreos.

Various parts of a certain post I'm sure you are aware of by now.

 

"you made a comment that in my eyes was rude as ****. Some of your vegan friends over there with that piece of celery up their asses have bought into your bull**** that you were attacked and basically cornered like you were being beaten to ****, but I don't buy your ****."

 

"tell your dip**** friends that the loss of meat in their diets have made them complete ****ing morons."

 

Complaining that a comment was rude then responding with a rude comment? Although I didn't expect much considering their username is white trash *****y blonde.

 

*face palm*

I agree with you, but we can play that game all day, can't we? It's like a debate between an atheist and a religious person. The atheist feels like an outcast, ostracised by those around him or her and made uncomfortable by religious edifices on public or governement property. So, the atheist petitions to remove some religious symbol or other from Town Hall or a public school. Then, religious groups attack and accuse the atheist of practicing the same intolerance that he or she is protesting. The atheist points out that the religious groups' recent actions are similarly intolerant and round and round we go.

 

It's always tempting to point out incongruities between a groups words and actions, their beliefs and their behaviors, but it's useless and looks bad on both sides. I'm not entirely sure what the solution is. I suppose it depends on your values. At the very least, both sides need to agree on what is constructive and what isn't--attack ideas, not people; make arguments using facts, not feelings.

 

In this case, nothing WTBB wrote is constructive. It appears she is reacting in anger to what she feels is a rude comment. However, that does not forgive the rudeness with which she reponds. I think it is always the next person's responsibility to end the cycle. She could have made all of her points without resorting to name-calling or four star words. Instead, she perpetuates the ill will and negativity. At least she apparently felt better after (not quoted above, see the end of her original post)?

Dark got in a bit of an argument on another forum, got frustrated, posted it here to vent, other forum caught her. It is now some weird 'through the looking glass' thing as their omnivore versus leaf muncher thread has turned into nothing but a 'let's talk about meat and how yummy it is' thread.

Really? For some reason, I have this sudden urge to say "you should move to America, become my personal cook/driver, and also rub my back at night, because it helps me fall asleep."

 Come on, Erratus. Be fair. A few users are also talking about how they exclusively eat animals they have hunted/farmed and killed themselves.

Sorry if my response sounded abrupt but most of the time I hear the word carnivore used when discussing veganism or vegetarian the people saying it are actually serious. Thank you for the friendly invite sadly it would appear that some of the posters there are not as friendly and I would rather stay where I am thank you :)

I just found your invite. Sorry about that, guess it got buried in all the excitement. While I am not opposed to sharing my viewpoint and talking with other folks, I don't really want to turn this into a battle between forums or anything. I don't feel like I should go there, since it is Dark that is the link between us, not me. And as Dee pointed out, there are some people on there that I think I would rather not engage with. 

 

Also, White, if you happen to read this, I realize they were said jokingly. That is why I found them funny. I laughed because you made a funny joke. Sorry if you took that the wrong way. I didn't want to post anything mean, but I found some funny things said over there that I got a laugh out of and thought the veggies here would too. But I think that I really ought to stop concerning myself with what is said over there and try to put this thread back on track. And to help that cause, let us all remember what happens when vegetarians decide to fall off the wagon:

Probably just trolling.

 

 

The other day I heard something to the effect of "I would go vegetarian, but I need to eat poultry for my blood type."

The blood type diet isn't backed up by real science. I can't believe people are stupid enough to fall for it.

True or not, the few people I know that believe it, don't stick to it anyway. They just use it as an excuse to eat what they want, when they want it.

 

I'm not particularly educated about it (I don't even know my own blood type anyway), but any time it's been brought up among people who I know are educated about nutrition and diet, the place becomes eyeroll central.

 

Regardless, I'd rather eat against blood type and focus on getting proper nutrition without eating animals.
