I read a bumper sticker the other day. It said: "PETA - People Eating Tasty Animals." I thought this was kinda funny. A female accomplice of mine didn't agree.
I could go on for hours about how this accomplice of mine is a nutjob that cares more about her ego than anything else, and I could rant for days about how we should all throw things away as opposed to recycling them and how global warming is actually bullshit, but I don't think that would accomplish anything. The people that do feel 'strongly' about these issues are just going to ignore me or call me biased and nobody else really gives a damn. I will make one small statement about "guilt-free" diets and such:
Vegetarians are just as "cruel" as the rest of us, and perhaps even a bit more, because plants are defenseless. If you want to be completely fair and "preserve life" and what not you should only eat animals because they can at least run away. Besides, wouldn't you rather extinguish one life, as in the life of a cow or a chicken to feed a whole family, or would you have us mercilessly consume tens or even hundreds of fruits, vegetables and grains? Just think of all the unborn corn or unborn pea plants that we've essentially "aborted". This is a holocaust nobody talks about.
Why do I have to explain to people that this isn't a serious argument?
