OK...I know there is a thread "Stupid Things omnivores say'..<br><br>
I would like to make a list (newsletter) titled something like, "The Top 20 Vegetarian questions are Finally answered".<br><br><br><br>
Post a question you hear constantly from an omni that you feel fits into the Top 20.<br><br><br><br>
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.<br><br><br><br>
THANKS EVERYONE!

I could never do that. How do you stand it?<br><br>
Isn't this just a phase? (Then I tell them I've been veg for 6 1/2 years, and they usually shut up.)<br><br>
How do you eat in foreign countries?<br><br>
Why would you want to destroy local cultures and economies?<br><br>
A lot of people want to eat meat but can't afford it. Shouldn't you eat it in honor of them?<br><br>
Why do you waste your time on that when humans aren't even equal yet?<br><br>
The animals are going to die anyway, so why not eat them?<br><br>
What about venus flytraps? Would you eat one of them?<br><br>
Animals aren't treated badly at my uncle's farm, so why not eat them?<br><br>
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 <b>still</b> doing <b>that</b>?<br><br>
Can you just pick out the (sausage, pepperoni, tuna etc.)?<br><br>
Can't you make an exception just this once?<br><br>
Well, you can just eat the French fries for lunch, right?

XD hahaha, I <i>hate</i> 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*<br><br><br><br>
Heres some-<br><br>
What if you accidentally ate meat?<br><br>
Would you just eat a <i>bite</i>?<br><br>
What are you going to do when you have a family?<br><br>
Are you like one of those hardcore vegetarians that won't eat <i>any</i> meat? (I got asked this about a week ago.. wtf)<br><br>
What if I paid you a million dollars?<br><br><br><br>
These are all pretty ignorant/stupid/immature.. cause.. I'm in college. And so are my friends. Enough said? XD

<br><br><br><span style="color:#008000;">Somebody's actually asked you that? Wow, I thought I'd heard some stupid ones but that might be the pinnacle of lameness.</span>
