Interesting statement but not callousOriginally Posted by auggie
Is it just me or does anyone else find the above statement to be callous and out of place on a vegetarian/vegan messageboard?
I agree with everything you posted but I should have clarified.Originally Posted by Sevenseas
I think there are two possible reasons for such comments:
1) people have a childish desire to "get back" at those they disagree with by harming outsiders (in this case animals): "look what you made me do! I bet you feel bad now since you made me want to harm animals!!11",
2) people are so non-individualistic (conformist?) that they base such a central practice as what they eat on what others do: how other people behave affects the way they want to eat. Their reason for veg*nism has more to do with belonging to a group than anything else.
