Metrosexuals are strange.
Metrosexual is being nice.This guy is an alien.Or, rather, a 'nice' guy, the type my wife used to work with as a flight attendant way back when...
That guy went past "metro" in elementary school.
I wasn't aware being vegan was supposed to trip one's gaydar.Not to mention that whole, "Fight breedism", thing that sounds an awful lot like Dr Berwick gone all Auschwitz.
What is "breedism?"
sydney said...What is "breedism?"Breedism is anti-mutt elitism amongst pet owners.
Whew. I was afraid it might be referring to human reproduction.(The things people get upset about!)
What Students Say. That's what I need to watch.Off to youtube!

My son and his wife have gone vegan. They now apparently inhabit a different planet than the rest of us.
In reference to the previous post, can vegans swallow?
After seeing this I can't even imagine the nutty stuff said by fruitarians?
I've met plenty of muttists.Every now and then I suffer from muttism a wee bit. But, in my defense, a top level Australian Labradoodle is way more elite than almost every so-called pure bred.
First World Problem(TM) not really, here are also people asking to castrate dogs and cats and adopt one... planet of the apes in the making
I want that minute of my life back.
My fave is "Shit Irish Lads Say."
The "vegetarian"* tag that Althouse chose to affix speaks enough volumes.;----*as against choosing another (obvious one)
The vegan ones are cute but avoid playing the "Cure for Homophobia" one at work.
When did annoying become your favorite flavor?
I thought he might be calling the Honey Badger guy for a date.
An "in depth" character study of Vegan Guy would run to what... 30 words?
EDH,Some people are vegans for ethical reasons, i.e. animals can't consent to being made into or giving up some emulsion from their body for human food. Since the...ummm...man-gift is given freely by a conscious being, there is no problem accepting it. So the answer is yes.Douglas Adams's intelligent, self-sacrificing cows at the Restaurant at the End of the Universe were a direct poke at ethical vegans.wv: nomenem (I would have preferred, nomnomnom
"I wasn't aware being vegan was supposed to trip one's gaydar."I dunno, maybe its his obviously effeminate voice and inflection that screams 'I'M GAY'. NTTAWWT.Doesn't have anything to do with vegan.Breedism is supposed to be a push-back against certain veterinarians, PETA and other 'organizations' that discriminate against dogs based on what breed they are. It may seem silly but apparently there are those that make no bones about their dislike for certain breeds.Its always something.
Not funny. If you read Peter Singer's book on how livestock is raised and killed in this country, you will turn vegan in a NY minute. Or at least not mock or laugh at people who care about such stuff.

If you read Peter Singer's book and don't realize you're being taught by an ethical monster, you're an idiot.In short, Singer believes that some humans are non-persons, while some non-human animals are persons. The killing of humans and the saving of rats follows.
Pogo said...--------------Forget the messenger.. what about how the industry is run? Isn't there truth in how it is documented? It is not just him, there are others who have documented how these animals are kept. I can't reconcile the fact that some in this country treat their dogs/pets like children and then turn a blind eye to how or where their food comes from. At least do the honorable thing -- give them a good life before you, pro-lifers and all kill them.
Rusty said...-----------Well, at least you are not a coward like many others -- you kill for food. Bravo!
I can't reconcile the fact that some in this country treat their dogs/pets like children and then turn a blind eye to how or where their food comes from. The power of hunger.
"what about how the industry is run? "Then eat kosher. They treat animals with dignity. I'm not opposed to favoring producers with humane treatment, nor exposing abuse.But its not a reason to go vegan; that's just avoiding responsibility.
If you read Peter Singer's book on how livestock is raised and killed in this country, you will turn vegan in a NY minute.What if I just hang out around farms like I have for the past 20 years? Hasn't changed my eating habits.
If everyone suddenly "goes vegan", what are we going to do with all of those cows, pigs, sheep, and poultry? Just open the gates and let them roam freely? I think everyone who becomes a vegan should be required to take the animals that they are now not going to eat into their homes and provide them food and shelter. And I would suggest neutering them because a cow giving birth in the middle of your living room can get quite messy.
"Hasn't changed my eating habits."I've been around enough farms to know that as well. Jim Gaffigan:"Don't you know what they do to those chickens?" "...No but it's delicious."
I guess I should hang my head in shame that I once worked for Cargill. I remember going to a processing plant in Dodge City, KS and watching cattle ascend the "stairway to heaven."
Strictly evolutionarily speaking, becoming a domestic food animal has been a very successful species strategy; the world population of bovine/porcine/ovine/(whatever the pretentious word for poultry is)is far greater than could ever be sustained in a "free-range" environment.
If you read Peter Singer's book on how livestock is raised and killed in this country, you will turn vegan in a NY minute.I've worked at a slaughterhouse and in college was friends and/or roommates with several people who owned ranches and farms (one now owns a large turkey farm.) Listening to them, anyone who thinks these animals are sentient or even self-aware is in fantasy land.One of these days, my son-in-law is going to finally kill an elk and I'll find out if elk meat is as good as my daughter claims.Speaking of farming, if you knew how farming is really done, you'd turn carnivorous in a NY minute.
Vegans are obsessed with meat. I love wandering through health food store aisles just to see the hilarious names they come up with for meat substitutes. Stuff like Not-So-Sausage, Wheatballs, and Tofurkey.
Two days ago the 20-something butcher blew my mind by chopping my whole chicken into eight pieces and bagging it within three seconds. Whapwhapwhap done. But then I realized there wasn't that much to start with, the head, feet, feathers, guts, were already gone.
One of these days, my son-in-law is going to finally kill an elk and I'll find out if elk meat is as good as my daughter claims.If you get tired of waiting, and are ever in the Denver area, there are multiple restaurants there that serve Elk, the most famous of which is the Fort, SW right next to the foothills. Serves elk, bison, and a lot of other exotics, including rattle snake, Rocky Mountain Oysters, etc. Of course, bison is not really so exotic these days. You can find it in most of the grocery stores in Colorado, and ground up, it is comparable in price to expensive hamburger meat. Normally, I do prefer bison meat to beef, but last summer, a girl friend's ex traded hay for a cow and a pig (butchered). Grain fed and no hormones, raised next door to the farm that raised the hay. Ate quite a bit of it, and after beef like that, I can't comprehend going vegan.
