  • Are vegans going to ban meat?

    Best answer: No. Vegans make up a tiny percentage of the US population. They don't have the political, moral or financial power to ban anything. Besides, in the US almost 90% of them will stop being veg and start eating meat again.

    Best answer: Not sure what point you’re making or what question you’re asking.

    Are vegans stupid? Vegans are as diverse in their behaviour and range of intellect as any other group of people - cyclists, say, or Beatles fans.

    Or are you asking why there are attempts to replicate foods usually made of meat in a way that doesn’t include any meat, and suggesting that vegans are stupid for eating these items while they ‘proudly calm themselves vegan (sic)’?

    I suggest you turn the question around:

    Why do people whose diet includes meat have to spice it, flavour it, add soya and other fillers, shape it into sausage shapes, patties, rashers and other shapes until it no more resembles the cow or pig it came from (in taste or appearance) than it resembles a head of broccoli? See? Same logic, same question.

    One reason fake meats are popular is probably that they make it easier for a new vegetarian or vegan to make the change from eating meat. And they're fine for people who may have a moral objection to eating meat, but who enjoyed and miss it.

    But mostly it's just that they’re different tastes and textures, and who doesn’t crave that in their diet?

    And they don't actually 'replicate' meat - sausages, patties, rashers etc are just forms, usually made from meat, but they can just as easily be made from seitan, tofu etc. They’re not necessarily meat substitutes, but ways of processing and shaping food. You never saw a round flat animal, after all, or a sausage shaped one. They're just convenient shapes to form the centrepiece to a meal or fit a roll or bun.

    Meat ‘substitutes’ aren’t the healthiest or cheapest food you can eat, but if you’re feeling lazy and uninspired they’re fine now and then And some of them do taste good.

    I went vegetarian in 1969 (I'm vegan now) and for many years there were no fake meats - just TVP chunks which were disgusting. So I lived for many years without them, and could do so again. But I like some of them, so I'll continue to eat them.

  • Why do meat eaters consider it normal to kill and eat the flesh and blood of living creatures?

    Best answer: You can make everything sound strange and abnormal by careful choice of wording. For example, why do toilet goers consider it normal to smear their feces on a piece of paper? And why do people who sleep consider it normal to lie down and hallucinate vividly every night? Why do most people eat meat? For the same... show more

    Why do most people eat meat? For the same reason we eat salad or oranges: it's delicious and it's healthy.

  • Do you hate someone just for being vegan?

    I've been vegan for about 9 years now. I just do it for myself. Couldn't care less if you eat human babies. Obviously I can't keep it to myself forever. If I go to someone's house for dinner I have to tell them I'm vegan. If we get lunch at work I have to tell them. Most people seem to get... show more
    I've been vegan for about 9 years now. I just do it for myself. Couldn't care less if you eat human babies. Obviously I can't keep it to myself forever. If I go to someone's house for dinner I have to tell them I'm vegan. If we get lunch at work I have to tell them. Most people seem to get defensive the moment I say I'm vegan and can't eat dairy or meat. A coworker asked if I wanted half his sandwich and when I said I'm vegan he just went, "oh ...fair enough," then he went into a discussion about how he doesn't care what vegans do as long as they don't tell him what to eat. So would you hate me simply for being vegan?

  • Why do people say vegans shove their views down other people’s throats when everyone else talks about how good their beef taste.?

    Also everything that sells food mainstream is selling meat,dairy or eggs and somehow that’s OK but if a vegan screams what they believe in it’s too much. Vegans get lots of **** but meat eaters don’t see how much advertising is done for regular Standard American Diet or SAD. We see that every day and we can’t go... show more
    Also everything that sells food mainstream is selling meat,dairy or eggs and somehow that’s OK but if a vegan screams what they believe in it’s too much. Vegans get lots of **** but meat eaters don’t see how much advertising is done for regular Standard American Diet or SAD. We see that every day and we can’t go into he grocery store with seeing dead animals and their products. I don’t actively go out and yell my view in people’s face but I do Post whatever I want on my Facebook because I can. It would be shoving my views in other people’s faces if I posted things vegan related to their wall. Better yet if we had a billboard you all would be freaking out I’m sure . While we don’t, we drive by all these fast food places and billboards for the SAD and I never complain. We are opposed group and the larger group seems to bully us into silence .
