If the title caught your attention this should put you right:
va·gar·y   [vuh-gair-ee, vey-guh-ree]
noun, plural va·gar·ies. :lol:
1.
an unpredictable or erratic action, occurrence, course, or instance: the vagaries of weather; the vagaries of the economic scene.
2.
a whimsical, wild, or unusual idea, desire, or action.


Just a phew compiled quotes from this amazing well artikuletad writings: :headscratch:

His girlfriend used to offer him some of her meat pie on the way home.

"I would have to remind her that I could not eat it," he says.

These days vegans are less likely to be loners living in caravans.

Muscle munchers.

"If I kiss someone I just do not want the hassle of wondering what's stuck between her teeth”

Researchers studying the metaphors American and British consumers use when talking about food say meat is consistently rated more "masculine" than vegetables.

"vegangelist".

I'm sorry, but these just sound like horrible, divisive people to me.

"Sorry pal but not eating a cow doesn't mean it still wasn't processed anyway." Nick, that's quite incorrect - if fewer people eat cows fewer will be processed. Basic stuff...

For the record, not all meat eaters have poor dental hygiene. We don't all have bits of animal flesh wedged between our teeth when we go out on dates.

I think Alex Bourke needs to get some perspective. Child abuse is equal to eating meat??

I do now eagarly await a similar peice from the meat eating perspective on try to find non-veggie love lol.
Are meat eaters as self-rightous?

But what if they were my chickens, kept in the lap of luxury, as many layers pellets as they want and plenty of fruit and veg etc. I have no cockeral so the delicious eggs my girls put lots of energy into laying every day I should just pop straight in the bin... they're better pets than cats or dogs and you can be assured of the standards of the egg's and the ladies welfare...

@Steve1955,

You'd be surprised, I have been accused of child abuse and neglect by meat-eaters when they find out that I am bringing up my daughter as a vegetarian, so don't assume that the preaching is one-sided
