Soakin his nails… in the fishpond?
Is it just me or is there something borderline xenophobic about the “gross out” tactics some vegans find it appropriate to use when advocating. Like reminding people that they are eating blood (which is used in a variety of cuisines in sauces, soups, sausages, or even consumed fresh), or chewing on pieces of organs, or fermented milk with pus in it, etc etc. I think it’s a little disrespectful — and naive — to assume that everyone will and should recoil in horror when presented with these facts, which they probably already know.
I guess I feel that the strongest argument in favor of veganism is ultimately a moralistic one, i.e., “If you can afford to stop eating meat (economically, nutritionally, and reasonably conveniently), you probably should.” Assuming that individual consumptive patterns are going to do anything about global meat production and factory farming (I’m still unconvinced). But anyway, is it really necessary to drag a variety cultural food staples through the dirt and label them as normatively disgusting?
i just like to learn about things
and i’ve heard the bible quoted so many times, by so many people, both to say good and bad things about it, that i told myself one day i’ll read it.
so i did.
but i am not a religious person and i can’t say i believe there is a god. i don’t believe that there isn’t a god either, though.
love story, du juan by vincent peters
I am wicked, a coward, weak and I hate myself. But I might be able to love myself, maybe my life could have a greater value. Yes, I am nothing but I. I am I. I wish to be I. I want to continue existing in this world! I am worth living here!
