vegans can now eat insects, as they are not animals -

They also have no capacity to feel pain or suffer -

so rejoice vegans! we finally have a source of protein!

Right!! Or pig anus night

Fear factor definitely answered the age old question of "what would you do for a million dollars". It showed us that people will do anything for a whole lot less lol.

Depends. If the cow brain came from someone locally who has some meadows and produces organic cows brains, if her cows are NOT ever hurt, if it is a tiny endeavor and serves mostly friends and family, if she does it because she loves cows and loves cow brains then do I not eat that cow brain just because if I do it will ruin my precious title of "vegan"?

No.

I eat it to degrade myself on national TV and win a cool $50,000 and appreciate how it is gotten.

I honestly do not see the ethical issue in this case. You can't prove to me cows feel pain.

Cheers!

In the case of most of the contestants I have seen in Fear Factor that would be considered cannibalism...

Word. When I was a vegan, back in the day, I ate insects (cochineal/carmine) because as you said they have no pain consciousness, so who cares that they're in kingdom animalia...so are sponges and oysters.

ETA: I gather this thread is just a chance for dogmatic vegans to mock ethical vegans. ?

Considering that people pay money to eat hot dogs and chitlins which are practically the same thing, it sure doesn't surprise me that they'd do it for a chance to win money.
