I think the guy is turning a lot of people off to veganism by reinforcing a (very) negative stereotype.



Obviously more interested in being better than everyone else than he is in doing any real good.

The same old stereotypes. This page is the reason why most people are put off veg*nism.

Well I don't like t-shirts with nasty sayings n them anyway regardless of what it's about but this is as bad as the baby bib with "eat meat , not wheat" on it

That is definitely not taking the hight road. I definitely think it will turn people off to veganism.

It only adds to the perception by non veg*ns that the veg*n "world" is full of radical freaks. Too bad for stuff like that, I really get bothered when someone rolls their eyes at me and says, "oh, you're not one of them are you?"

I was wondering the same thing. Of course, the internet has taught me that no matter how outrageous a viewpoint is, someone out there will have it. The site name is a little over-the-top, though it appears that the author isn't actually promoting violence in their blog. It is true that not all veg*ns are pacifists. *shrug* Might be real, maybe not.

LOL. Fvck, the stereotype, this is hilarious. They actually have greeting cards that read "**** You if You Eat Chicken." I'm still opposed to violence against people, but I have no problems at all with property damage.

I have no problem with the site (because he is not promoting violence - unlike an omni's diet, which DOES promote violence) and I do think his slogan beats: "Beef. It's what's for dinner."



I would be too chicken to wear his shirt, myself.

That just reminded me of some of the funniest slogans I've ever seen on billboards...



"I scream, you scream, we all scream for PORK!"



and



"One potato, two potato, three potato, PORK!"



Those were friggin hilarious...I was laughing so hard.

Did you see his blog? Appalling! He mis-uses apostrophes!



"Chinese Nature Park lets visitors shoot baby Chicken's for fun"

"Please Don't F*ck the Cow's"



An apostrophe does not make a word plural!





Oh, wait. You guys were talking about the content.

Misused apostrophes make Verby a violent vegan.
