OK...I know there is a thread "Stupid Things omnivores say'..

I would like to make a list (newsletter) titled something like, "The Top 20 Vegetarian questions are Finally answered".

Post a question you hear constantly from an omni that you feel fits into the Top 20.

If this seems like a duplicate of the mentioned thread already started I apologize. I guess I can go through that also and find the answers. I thought this would be a good format to get the answers since there is no detail involved..just the questiosn we hear all the time.

THANKS EVERYONE!

I could never do that. How do you stand it?

Isn't this just a phase? (Then I tell them I've been veg for 6 1/2 years, and they usually shut up.)

How do you eat in foreign countries?

Why would you want to destroy local cultures and economies?

A lot of people want to eat meat but can't afford it. Shouldn't you eat it in honor of them?

Why do you waste your time on that when humans aren't even equal yet?

The animals are going to die anyway, so why not eat them?

What about venus flytraps? Would you eat one of them?

Animals aren't treated badly at my uncle's farm, so why not eat them?

If God didn't mean for us to eat animals, why did he make them out of meat?

You're awesome! Those are great. The only one I feel you left out was: Isn't this just a phase? I've been told by customers (i'm a waitress) that it's just a phase. No, I don't plan on eating a murdered animal ever again. The idea of it makes me sick.

Are you still doing that?

Can you just pick out the (sausage, pepperoni, tuna etc.)?

Can't you make an exception just this once?

Well, you can just eat the French fries for lunch, right?

XD hahaha, I hate when people ask me that! No, plants don't have feelings. It's the same thing when people bring up the "well plants are alive..." *sigh*

Heres some-

What if you accidentally ate meat?

Would you just eat a bite?

What are you going to do when you have a family?

Are you like one of those hardcore vegetarians that won't eat any meat? (I got asked this about a week ago.. wtf)

What if I paid you a million dollars?

These are all pretty ignorant/stupid/immature.. cause.. I'm in college. And so are my friends. Enough said? XD

"How can you STAND it?"

"Don't you miss cheese (bacon, steak, ice cream, etc)?"

"Can't you just 'eat around it' - or pick it out?"

"Don't your children hate you for forcing this on them?"


"But it doesn't hurt the cows to give milk does it?"
