Typical stuff and not repeated exactly as said.

Them: So what's wrong with you.

Me: I suffer from a rare disease that involves energy and protien metabolism issues.

Them: What?

Me: In simple terms it's an anemic like disease.

Them: OH...anemia ( now they think they have me figured out) You need red meat for anemia.

Me: Explains once again that I prefer a naturisitc type diet appropriote to my species.

Them: Meat feels natural to me.

Me: Since I don't have claws,sharp teeth and hunting instincts, it's not natural for me ( don't feel like going into details that they are the same species or ask if they have sparp teeth and claws.)

Them: If I stop eating meat a few days I get sick.

Me: Then I guess you must have a health condition that requires meat.

Them: Nope...meat is good for you.

Me: I agree despite not being a natural food for our species, meat is healthy.

Yes it's the usual illogical bit from the random omni. They cannot depart from their cultural upbringing to think logically.

Traditional Chinese Medicine uses meat as 'medicine'. It, like all other foods, has certain properties which can be beneficial to us. I study TCM. My instructors and fellow students are skeptical of veg*ns. There are those, myself included, who think it isnt necessary. . . I hear Shaolin monks are vegan,.. what do they eat?

Our ancestors almost certainly ate meat. We are descended from omnivores. I would not use the 'natural argument' to promote veganism. Instead I'd use an ethical appeal. I stopped eating meat because I didn't feel like paying other people to confine animals in tiny cages and kill them for my benefit. I don't have to pretend it's some super diet or completely natural. It's more in line with my ethics and principles than a meat based diet. I'm a gentle and thoughtful person.

holy 3 year old thread bounce batman. jernord, the OP hasn't been around for almost 3 years- i doubt she's gonna respond, nor that she knows much about the diet of monks. you may do better to start your own new thread on the topic.

If this form had a 'like' or an 'upvote' button, your response would have just earned a point from me. Well said.
