Just invited to a meatout event/pride parade
Posted by: Black
Date: March 01, 2014 04:49PM
I just received an e-mail inviting me to Great American Meatout day event (March 20) which is a benefit in a bar to raise money for the Chicago Veggie Pride Parade. Unfortunately I have orchestra rehearsal that night but I'm interested to hear what sort of meatout plans you-all have.

I thought this was a follow up to that little blue pill / 4 hour thread a short time ago.

I like the inclusive feel of a meatout event better than a big meat event.

"Veggie Pride"? Really?

So I went to Wikipedia to check it out:

"It brings together vegetarians and vegans who want to show their pride to refuse to eat animals, and denounce the discrimination which they suffer, both personally and in terms of expressing their ideas."

As a pragmatic vegetarian, (I still like my milk and cheese.), I find this kind of "Help! I'm being repressed!" grandstanding most offensive.
There are many good things about a vegetarian diet- it's not all boiled lentils. I've lost 40 pounds since last March, mostly by change of diet. (I'm still firmly against eating Kale in any month that contain a vowel.)
Please save the "Pride" for those who are genuinely discriminated against, because of how or where or what they were born, or some other innate thing that sets them apart as Other.

I'm going out for a cheeseburger; it's been two years since I last had one. Cheeseburger Pride!

Two years since you hate beef, or two years since you ate a cheeseburger? Because if you haven't eaten beef in two years and wolf down a cheeseburger, you may be in for a lot of hurt.

I don't hate beef, where did you get that idea? I last had beef at my Sister's house, on Christmas. Yum!
(As I said, I'm a Pragmatic Vegetarian.) Before that, to celebrate my new Boat, I fried up a hamburger on the freshly working alcohol stove. (The day before, when the stove was still wonky, I had a can of cold Dinty Moore.)
Two years ago, I hung out with some people and ate cheeseburgers with them. Life changed, I no longer hang around with them, so I just got out of the cheeseburger habit. I'm sure that a cheeseburger now would be just ducky.

You know what gave me gut grief? Milk.
I hadn't drunk much more than a splash in an occasional cup of tea for decades. Then, when I went on my new diet, it took a couple of weeks for Mr. Gut to remember just how much I liked milk when much younger, especially with potato chips. I'm up to over a pint a day now, and I seem to have stabilized at 148 pounds, which is around where I was at, at 40.

Seriously, there _is_ a problem with people eating too much meat. Meat has gotten very expensive, (Hamburger has gone up 30% around here since Christmas.), and the industry is despicable.

But I am in no way anti-meat. For me, it's now for special occasions, like Christmas, and Birthdays, and new boats, and getting laid.
Well, Christmas, Birthdays, and new boats...

I'm friends with several vegetarians.. Some very nice people. We don't try to change each others diets. It can be hard making cookies for 'em around christmas though.. Have to remember who's OK with eggs, butter, etc and who's not. I can usually find or make something nice though.

I have not yet in my life met a Vegan who did not go out of their way to prostylatize.. Sometimes to the point of being quite rude. I'm sure they exist.. Well.. Relatively sure..

I've never seen a "vegetable-out" parade. Musta just missed 'em.

I'm getting a little confused as to what is being posted here is just everyday fake outrage, and what is actually real fake outrage.
I am forced to admit that what I posted is sincere real fake outrage.

It was a _wonderful_ typo. My typos usually just make me look ordinarily foolish, your typo gave me shot at being extraordinarily foolish.

Thanks.

mr. typo-free grammarian says make due looks really goofy compared to make do or even make dew.

Sir, you are employing a double negative!

They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day.

Sigh...

As currently constituted, factory farming in the US entails the systematic torture and killing of billions of animals. People who buy the products of this factory farming system are, with their dollars, effectively supporting this torture and killing. There are many, many videos that show the shocking mistreatment of animals in factory farm environments.

This is in fact a separate issue from "eating meat." There are numerous scenarios in which a human being killing an animal for food does not contravene basic concepts of decency and compassion.

Factory farming ain't one of them.

I ate the products of factory farming for decades, I certainly make no claim to "moral superiority" compared with meat eaters. Heck, I LOVE burgers, chicken, fish, you name it. But once I learned more about how this food was produced, I knew I could no longer be complicit in that process.

My two cents. It's a free country, do whatever makes sense to you.

I thought the Ron Swanson quote was funny and apropos to this thread, and didn't see your post until after I posted. Please don't think my funny was in response to your thoughtful post, because it was not. You make some very good points. I haven't been able to give up meat due to extreme carnivorous tendencies, but I do wish I could afford to purchase it at one of the small humane farms which deliver to Baltimore homes. I do hate the idea that animals suffer so badly so I can enjoy my dinner; I simply don't seem to have the werewithal to give it up entirely. More power to you.
