I imagine a most ironic scene of several vegan friends eating waffles with maple syrup and referring to their omnivorous peers as "bloodmouths".

I guess it's just hard to feel bad about killing something that doesn't have a face.


What do normal people eat on waffles?


The point they were making, is that they used maple syrup. Which is made from the sap of maple trees. Sap being the trees' functional equivalent to blood in animals. They're eating their waffles with tree blood.


Are we ignoring the fact that that is factually incorrect for comedic effect?

It's hypocritical.


Thank you. Haha.

What is the function of blood? To transport oxygen and nutrients throughout the body of an animal, correct?

Wikipedia article on tree sap defines tree sap as:

Wikipedia
Sap is a fluid transported in xylem cells (tracheids or vessel elements) or phloem sieve tube elements of a plant. The xylem cells transport water and nutrients throughout the plant.


No, we're not ignoring anything. It's ******** tree blood.

Functional equivalents to a point, perhaps, but when blood is defined as it is, the equivocation becomes less than accurate. It was mostly that that I was making a point of, that and face-saving.
I'm a jain vegetarian/fruitarian. I love animals and nature and don't want to harm anyone. I respect others' choices about eating too. I don't think anyone should judge anyone else. I simply choose to live as peacefully as I can.

I'm a vegetarian, and really the only reason I'm not a vegan is because I work at a non-vegan bakery.

That term is awesome, I've been wondering if there were any good words like that.

Animals that eat meat are either not capable of eating a plant-based diet and do not possess the cognitive capacity to understand why eating meat would be bad.
Besides, they eat meat from nature, not from industrial meat farms, and they also don't have populations of 7 billion.

No, I don't go around telling everyone what bastards they are. Most people are too stupid to grasp the concept that humans probably aren't going to be around much longer.
But since you're asking, yes, you are selfish for eating meat, there are no reasons, only excuses.

also, in b4 "sustainable meat"

It's blood, so far as a plant can have blood. It's certainly going to be different than it would be in an animal, but functionally, it's about as close as it gets.

So think of a vegan pouring syrup on a waffle, the same way a vegan would think of me pouring processed blood over a steak.

I'm not so dense as to not understand the point you are making. More that I am in a mood to be generally difficult.

Hey, if they wanna live like rabbits, that's their failure as a human being.
Just don't look surprised when I come by with a shotgun and a couple dogs around rabbit season.
...
"Duck season."
"Rabbit season!"
"Rrrrrabbit season."
"Duck season, FIRE!!"

Had to be done.

I'm not vegan, but I am vegetarian, and I don't like associating with vegans OR vegetarians who act all high and mighty. I've never heard of that slur before, but yes, I find it incredibly insulting. I don't find it disgusting that other people eat meat at all, especially those who absolutely require meat in their diet to survive (like the Inuits. I mean seriously, they live in Arctic regions where it's IMPOSSIBLE to grow plants for food). Some people try to cut down on how much meat they eat a week (particularly red meat), and I think that's great.

Hey, that's really awesome and everything, but I didn't write a single letter of that post for you, so I actually really don't care about anything you have to say here. Please don't respond to me ever again.

It's funny that people talk about how vegans are annoying, but I will never tell you that I don't eat meat unless you ask.

Of course, people like Tadpole Jackhole here are a dime a dozen, and there never fails to be some super cool guy meat eater that has to meet every "I don't eat meat" with "for every cow you don't eat I'm going to eat three" kind of s**t. Seriously, go take a look through the thread, see how many actual vegans there are insulting meat-eaters (yes, you can count my post), and how many meat eaters there are insulting vegans. The meat-eaters are infinitely louder. I don't run around going on about my dietary habits, so shut the ******** up because I don't ******** care about yours.


Yeah but you'll noticed that the 'meat eaters' don't get nearly as bent out of shape as the leaf-eaters about this kind of thing.

I'm being snarky, you seem genuinely upset.

also, there's evidence to suggest that plants do, in fact, feel pain, and signal nearby plants when they experience it.

I really intended to write that first post and not respond afterwards, but people that write terrible, dumb s**t on ED do make me upset. I didn't ask who was a meat-eater in the ED and don't care, so don't tell me.


it's an open discussion, you don't get to decide who replies.

It doesn't surprise me; a lot of vegans are so self-righteous about their veganism. If you hate eating meat, fine, more power to you, but eating meat doesn'tt make me a bad person; it makes me human



err I hope that you are aware that "being human" is an insult -.-. The most atrocious things in life are all done by human. It would actually be a compliment to say someone is Inhuman. Sadly many people misuse that word..
