Grown on giant agribusiness farms by robots

Sprayed with pesticides, either natural or organic

Fertilized

Picked by migrants

Dares to lecture me on what's """natural"""

I don't know how one can make the claim that humans eating meat is unnatural when this habit first emerged before primates even developed fire. Is it unnatural that humans discovered fire making? Or shelter building? What is "unnatural" if all that occurs occurred in a natural setting? The term, as vegans use it, alludes to some kind of extraterrestrial or supernatural intervention outside of the natural world, like Satan reached out into the world and corrupted humanity by revealing to them the grand trickery of... treating organic flesh with heat?

No. The word is meaningless in this context. However, it is unnatural for humans to eat, say, a car tyre.

We also cook our meat so it lasts longer. You can eat the raw meat of a fresh kill. I wouldn't do it too often, as uncooked meat, even freshly killed, can contain diseases. A lot of early settlers got rabbit fever eating uncooked rabbit meat.

Back to the hunter gatherers, the men would go out on hunts, eat their fill of fresh, raw meat, and then cook the rest on the spot, which could then be carried back to camp without rotting as quickly.

Thanks, hadn't heard of rabbit fever before: https://www.medicinenet.com/tularemia/article.htm#tularemia_facts

Rabbit starvation is also a side effect of eating only the lean meat of rabbits and not their fatty internal organs: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Protein_poisoning

Sucks for the reasonable vegans and vegetarians out there, so many dumbasses they get associated with.

I don't mix with vegans but every vegetarian I ever met supplemented their caloric shortfall with dairy, bakery items and sugary things. And there are many anecdotes about those abstaining from meat in their diets having these fucked up lapses where they catch a whiff of street-vendor hotdogs and suddenly wolf down 10 of them.

You're lying to yourself, and your body isn't buying your bullshit. Just balance your diet with healthy portions and buy from cruelty-free sources if possible.

It really is that simple. It's amazing how much of life's problems have the solution of eating right, in the right amount, drinking water, and doing a minimum of 3 workouts a week.

The whole premise is dumb. "If you can't eat it raw, it's terrible."

There are many, many vegetables, those ass clowns wouldn't eat raw. They would cook them and add spices to enhance their flavor and texture, making them more edible than they were before.

Yeah. It would be fun to watch them eat raw plaintains and yucca, for instance.

A few years ago I came upon a Reddit thread where a vegan was afraid that by owning a cat, she would be betraying her principles. It was hilarious. It devolved into animal rights activists vs. vegans.

I LOVE veggies as well but wouldn't want to subsist on eating those raw and uncooked for very long.

Personally I'm a pretty big fan of raw veggies

logic doesn't work on people who have an emotional investment in a myth. vegans (and other unreasonable people) will just ignore the facts and continue on with their beliefs.
