And yeah, I could cut you some slack, but condescending attitudes towards vegetarians are often times just as much brought on themselves or others due to their attitudes towards meat eaters. It goes both ways, and is a self-perpetuating cycle unless you break it by treating others' dietary choices with the same respect that you want to receive for your own.
I didn't eat meat...just soya...but I was weak and very skinny...after I sampled the salami..since I eat meat.
But I always ate hamburger. I don't know why. I liked that and I like that. I wasn't strong willed. but now I don't care.
I eat that what I like...meat or not meat. never mind.
bighead, with all due respect, cry me a river. oh what a hardship. my husband 1. is male and 2. used to be a vegetarian for 8 years - half of that in fucking TEXAS of all places - and somehow that didn't turn him into a whiny douche of epic proportions.
When I'm good, I'm very, very good, but when I'm bad, I'm better.
I feel the need to point out that I wrote the above reply before reading anyone else's replies and was pleasantly surprised to see other people say basically the same thing.
Alright, alright, c'mon now, let's not all jump on the namecalling bandwagon.
Yes, you come of as a douche.
Anyway, I eat meat because I enjoy the taste. That is my number 1 objective while eating. Eating something that taste good. Also, meat does not have to be unhealthy by any means.
This is not to say I don't enjoy fruits and vegetable. I looooooove potatoes, I could probably eat them with every meal. And onions? I could eat those with every meal. Apples, all sorts of berries, peaches, nectarines. All good stuff.
How do you feel about vegans bighead?
I wrote a four word letter.
If you wanted to show mutual respect for what someone else was saying, you might have wanted to say "Men get a lot of shit about being vegetarian," instead of having to frame it to make yourself look like a put-upon martyr. If you can't see why this rubs other people the wrong way, I don't know what else to say to you.

You so amazingly naive it's ridiculous. What planet are you from?
Edit:I don't feel like arguing this again, but just so readers know, 1565 edited the above post after I responded.
