so I started a thread and posted this.

Question for "animal lovers"
If you are not vegan, why?

Do you only love certain animals? and if so, why is it different to love the animal you love and not other animals.
For instance, how can you chastise someone for not liking cats, while you bite into a burger?

Either you love animals or you don't. Put your money where your mouth is and stop eating meat to show your love.

unless of course you are hypocrites, then by all means, kill one but save another.
any guess on the responses I will get? (othe than the typical F-U.)

Yeah- I don't understand the double standard. Their dogs, cats, turtle, and fish get to live- but not the handful of chicken, cows, and pigs that will feed them this week. Save all the cute fuzzy animals only then?

I think cows are cute actually. And sheep. Adorable.

Would love to see the responses.

It's sort of like me pointing out the issue with the latest Hell's Kitchen. They were having a benefit for the Humane Society... and Ramsey (always the anti-vegetarian) was serving meat, of course. I commented something along the line of, "Oh, I guess they're only "humane" to the cute animals." I just got a collection of confused expressions in return. So many just don't see their hypocrisy.

You might get better responses if you cut it shorter and stop, like this:

And then see what they say and have a dialogue.

Good luck. These things often don't end well but it's important to keep trying.

matter of fact, just so its in their face, help me come up with a sig line to egg them on..
History of them, they do animal rescue, mostly feral cats. anyone that does not like cats is an ******* in their opinion, basically the love pets, but they eat meat of all types... I dont understand this.

so how about this sig line,
those that claim to love animals while eating flesh are hypocrites. try rescuing the cow

its funny but, the longer I go without eating meat, the more I see wrong in it to start with.. not a bite since november 2010. (I know its short time for most here) Have not been able to switch to a vegan diet yet, and doubt I will ever go full vegan.. but still

I'm imagining God will come in to this quickly....

"God made some to be our pets and some to eat..."

I imagine those making these arguments have never seen a market scene in rural China...

I doubt those targeted individuals, whom I know have read it but have yet to answer, ( Im not going to let up on them till I get an answer) will be bringing up God in their response.

The use of God in any internet argument quickly changes the direction of the argument and ends up a total loss.

Her

Who ate the steak? I thought we were talking about cats and chickens? Did someone say cats taste like chicken?

me
We are talking about meat. Animal flesh.. But Im glad you dont eat cow based products.
but you know that.
Now dont try to cloud the issue, I am honestly looking for the answer here..

Can I claim to be vegan because I only eat eggs, cheese and milk products?
