Three brave anti-vegans have stepped up and submitted comments to the Soapbox that violated our comment policy and thus were rejected. However, they’ve gotten a second chance at being published in the…
America’s Favorite Anti-Vegan Contest!
Please vote for your favorite below.
Contestant number one is might-makes-right-Johnny. He wrote:
“God made us superior over animals so we could survive, and we are better than animals otherwise tehy [sic] would find a way to take over the world and kill all of us off, but we don’t see that happening do we?”
Perhaps he’d argue that women who can’t fight off their rapists deserve to get raped, too?
Contestant number two, moral-relativist-Bobby, says:
“all eating requires taking a life. Who is to judge which life is more or less important to take. Or which one is right or wrong.”
The sentient beings – the animals – trying to run away, biting and scratching, screaming in pain, begging for mercy… they’re the ones who are fit to judge you, Bobby. They’re the ones that humans intuitively know are “more important,” which is why seeing animals being killed is more disturbing than seeing images of plants being killed.
Contestant number three worries about too many cows. Imagination-challenged-Sam writes:
“If every human being was a vegetarian, it would lead to overpopulation of cattle in the world, since their reproduction and multiplication is very swift.”
Apparently, the only birth control Sam knows is the kill ‘em and eat ‘em kind. In his puny imagination, there’s no room for farm animal sanctuaries which prohibit reproduction by separating the females from males, neutering some animals, or using birth control medication. Don’t take a sex-ed class from this guy!
