I agree with Shannon Tiare's comments. Vegans who demonize carnivores/omnivores are short-sighted and grossly oversimplifying the complex issue of ethical food/resource consumption. And, yes, I do take particular offense to Anthony Kiedis's comment...it's the epitome of arrogant and preachy...with an extra pot shot at the overweight thrown in for good measure. Classy! Trying to convert someone to your cause by "shaming" them is archaic...and ineffective!

I easily shop at Trader Joe's & Mother's Market. I have been a vegetarian for years & have slowly started phasing out all animal products. All nutrients needed are easily found in plant products. I spend no more money on groceries than I did before. Meat & dairy products are actually more expensive than almost anything I buy.

Going vegan isn't just "not eating things". It is completely changing your diet and lifestyle to things that do not contain traces of the things you are "not eating" and having to go to specialty (expensive) stores to buy the foods that do not contain the *things* you are not eating. Not just *not* eating things, either...but *not* wearing certain things that would come from an animal, or *not* using things (ie: toiletries like soap) that could contain traces of an animal. A vegan lifestyle is serious and some people do not have the income to do that.

Look, I do not deny the problematic and destructive aspects of factory farming, but saying one person's diet is more ethically sound than another's is simply speaking, bullshit. The only way any of us have clean hands in regards to our food is if we grew and raised our own food ourselves. Such is the nature of living in a capitalist society.

I'm ridiculing privileged wankstains like Anthony Kiedis who ridicule fat ppl in order to glorify his fucking diet. You wanna be vegan? Fine. Do it, great. Just don't shame others for it. Simple.

You do realise that you still have to buy food, right? Been to whole foods or sprouts lately? Going vegan and staying that way is expensive as fuck. Factor in an entirely new diet without any animal products plus the supplements you will have to take in order to not get horribly sick (because there are certain vitamins that are found only in animal products that you need to stay alive) and that gets incredibly expensive. I am speaking as somebody who tried going raw for months before the food costs became too much.

& hey, most people can't afford a vegan diet, or have illnesses that make a vegan diet incredibly life threatening for them. U gonna say they're causing the destruction of the world? Piss off.

Doesn't help the migrant workers who pick the crops these vegans eat, nor does it help Bolivia's economic infrastructure, which was severely fucked up because the vegan demand for quinoa. So plz stop pretending that a bunch of privileged rich folks with the disposable income to afford vegan food are doing a damn thing to make the world a better place.

That assumes their actions are actually making the world a better place.

I will enjoy eating them when the Zombie Apocalypse drops. Everyone knows grass fed meat is the tastiest. I might not even wait.
