Haha, Wow. My last post of my rant against trendy vegans/vegetarians got rather exciting and out of hand. More than likely my fault, but I rather like the people of this site so I took it down as to not offend or alienate anyone on the site that saw it as a personal attack on all people that are vegetarian.
The amount of replies that took away from my post things that I didn't mean was astounding, as I have had this post on other sites and not gotten so much offense. I can only assume that it is a fault in my writing and my way of speaking on that point.
I think I rather got tired of trying to reiterate my views as to make people see that I do not mind vegetarians that do it for any personal, spiritual, or health reasons. I merely dislike people that use the title or "Vegan or Vegetarian" as a means to gain social status or trendiness, as i really do see that a lot where I live.
Once again, I must apologize that it cam out in such a way that made me sound as ignorant as it did, and perhaps I am that ignorant. But the feelings behind it were those of anger towards those that are self-rewarding in the venture of such a diet choice.
To those of you that thought of me as a worthless meat eater, I don't eat most meat as I have a stomach disease and it makes me sick because the meat is too hard for me to digest. I only eat meat because when I tried to cut out meat products, and follow a medically regulated vegetarian diet, it actually worsened my condition. Also, I am wholeheartedly against animal cruelty, and have had my own hand in directly working with abused animals. Which is why it angers me so to see people accrediting themselves as being righteous animal advocates when all they do is not eat meat because they're friends said it was the cool thing to do.
Alright then, I fully expect to keep receiving colorful hate mail. So, if you want to get my attention and yell at me, do so through a message.
