    calling my existence "real life" is an affront to both words.

    I am going to quote my favorite carnivore, Ted Nugent, on this one:

    "Vegetarians are cool. All I eat are vegetarians - except for the occasional mountain lion steak."

    Vegetarians don't bother me, until they tell me not to eat meat. Then I lose it. I don't tell them not to eat vegetables (heck I even like most all of them), so they sure as hell shouldn't tell me what not to eat. Besides, I do believe our body breaks down proteins in different ways. I am not convinced at all that soy is healthier or safer than animal based protein, either. Besides, Salmon is some might fine tasting meat cooked on a wood plank smothered in dijon mustard and sprinkled with brown sugar...mmmmm mmmm

    8+ year veg/pescatarian here. (I eat non-endangered fish (salmon, anchovies) once or twice a month when in-season.)

    For me, it's a personal choice, not a social agenda. My sister just became one after reading some book called "Skinny B1tc#" and she became a serious PITA about it--talking at the table about how cheese contains pus, steak contains blood, etc.
    It's these evangelical types who give everyone else a bad name. "This book totally changed my life!" I almost asked my dad for his discarded fat, just so I could eat it in front of her. (Getting sick later would have been worth it.)

    P.S. Veg girls do in fact taste better.

    Sorry to hear that. I hang out in Vegetarian forum sometimes, always looking for new recipes of all types, and seems like it is a common attitude in young, and not so young, women who read the book and turned Vegetarian.

    I grew up on a beef farm, and I'm pretty sure I would be disowned and removed from the will if I ever became a vegetarian or brought one home (which won't happen now that I'm married to an omnivore). I love meat, however I have been trying to consume a little less red meat for health reasons. I'd say we have chicken or fish about 80% of the time, and beef the rest. I love pork as well, however my wife doesn't so I only eat pork when she's not around because it's just easier that way.

    As far as my opinions towards vegetarians/vegans... To each their own, so long as they don't try to push their beliefs on me. If I'm out with a group and there's someone in there who's an obnoxious vegan/vegetarian and they're making a big deal about it, I'll make it a point to order a juicy steak and have it cooked nice and rare. If they try to tell me I shouldn't eat it, I'm not afraid to tell them to STFU so I can enjoy my meal while they enjoy their veggies. Afterall, I didn't claw my way to the top of the food chain to eat tofu.

    How often are you all actually being assaulted by militant veggies?

    All the vegetarians I know try to float below the radar because they understand the majority of people in our society eat meat, and many in that majority will have little problem with attempting to ridicule them in public. Considering that veggies are vastly outnumbered by meat eaters, it is much more likely for this to happen than the other way around.

    By the way, why would anyone suppose that seeing someone eat a steak (or what ever) should bother a vegetarian? Unless you are attempting to force them to eat it, so what?

    It has long been apparent to me that some omnivores are insecure with their decision to eat animals, and / or feel somehow threatened when around anyone who chooses not to do so.

    It used to occur fairly frequently when I lived in Portland. I guess the last time was around 2001 or so.

    I recently went "pescatarian" eating veggies and fish.... but I also eat eggs and cheese, just no meat except fish. I did it primarily because of the cruelty of factory farms and the inhumane conditions I saw and read about. I don't want to be a part of that. See, Vegans would be pissed at me because I still eat eggs and dairy, which still mistreats cows and chickens... and of course eating fish supports lousy fishing practices and abuses...but oh, well, I can only do what I can do. and I don't sweat it if I feel like having a burger or a reuben. but I try not to eat meat.

    I've noticed a little bit of that too over the years, though I wouldn't call it 'insecurity' exactly. Sharing meat is a seriously intimate social-bonding ritual among us primates. Desmond Morris mentioned something about it, and if you haven't already seen it, there's pretty compelling footage of chimpanzees hunting smaller monkeys and sharing meat after the hunt in the BBC Series Life of Mammals.
    It's kind of an intimate thing they share together, kind of reminds me of my 420-friendly friends--as soon as two potheads stumble into one another, they get all giggly and show each other their little pot-pipes and bags of green stuff.

    I've known a few that claimed the smell of meat made 'em physically ill.

    I like to engage people in such discussions just to see what kind of nutjob they are. If it's health, personal preference, don't like the idea of where it comes from etc... then that's fine. But if it's for some sort of social reason, you're borderline a nutjob IMO.

    As are you. You just choose not to eat meat.

    Been a vegan for almost 20 years...must say what started as a health kick turned out to become a way of eating. I detest those that treat been a vegan just like a born again christian trying to convince everyone what sinners we all are...Actually, is so easy been a vegan that many people around me do not notice or know that I follow a vegetarian diet. At the end of the day all it counts is happiness and a good bottle of wine.. (wine is vegetarian!!!yeeyyy) ... and yes we vegetarians taste better!!! unless we fill up with garlic and spicy stuff....

    [QUOTE=LesterOfPuppets;9751516]When it comes to dating or living with someone, picky eaters bother me to some extent and I feel vegetarians and vegans are just another form of a picky eater.

    One of our best friends is vegetarian with some vegan leanings. Her diet is vegetarian but she won't wear leather. When we go out, the biggest problem is finding restaurants that have interesting things that she can eat. Her food test is that she won't eat it if it had a mother or a face. She has no problem with us going out and my ordering steak, but then we don't fuss about the fact that she chooses to eat vegetarian.
