Ways to stop vegetarian's and meat lovers for jumping down each others throats?

If this offends any vegetarian's or vegan's I'm sorry...but I just don't see how someone support's animal torture by eating meat? I get my veggie's and meat in my diet, because we need both in order to live guys. So what are some ways to stop this 'war' between vegetarians and meat lovers?

Why are people so concerned about what the guy next to them is doing? Live ur life how you want and let others do the same.

Exactly that's what I say too. Who cares if someone eats a hamburger, or a salad?

Are people really still concerned about this??We raise cows and chickens and stuff for the sole purpose of eating. If we wanna get technical, plants are living also, yet we eat them. People just like to have something to complain about, that's all :)

As a vegetation (dumbass) friend of mine once said, "if it has a face, I won't eat it".
Report as
Agreed! And apparently I don't love animals cause I eat "meat". I think it's wrong to bring up an animal in abuse and can understand that reason but my friend had a ranch and raised cows (kinda weird having a burger with cows walking around) but those cows were well taken care of. Nothing wrong with that!

I agree with nafta. It's wrong to abuse animals and so on but animals were put on this earth not only for our respect but for our use. Big cats eat meat, does that make them bad? any way you can stop jumping down each other's throat by respecting other people's choices. you can't stop someone from eating meat and no one can force you to eat meat make your choices for YOU.

Funny you said down each others throats, that's what it will come down to! Can vegetarians be cannibals and will it cost more to buy a vegetable fed human!

Well picture this: Basically, when you eat meat picture a beautiful baby cow or pig very cute getting ready to have a great life, they have a soul, they want to live, they have emotions. They are happy little cuties until someone grabs them. Then they bring them to a table. An axe is hit as hard as possible into the poor little baby animal that was ready to have a great life just killed, basically born for no other reason than to be food. If you were a little 5 year old and humans were meat and you were killed, how would you feel? I'd be sad. Thats why I try to be a vegetarian I couldnt imagine killing a beautiful little soul.:( It makes me sad.:( But I dont hate meat eaters, this is just my opinion.

im vegitarian and all my friends are like "i dont get it" "its stupid" and they tell me they'll force meat in my throat, i hate it. so i resolved to telling them how i ddidnt like it. that didnt work at all because im apperently not a man if i dont eat meat so i punched em right in the face and walked away, people need to know that it bothers us alot to be made fun of. ive lived with the nick name veg head for a while, but i put a stop to that by expressing my feelings through words. the fact is, there's no stopping it, people will be people

Don't worry about the war Dragon, it's going to be a very short battle. Vegetarians don't get enough protein in there diet to fight very long.

I know. I'm just tired of all the fighting, sometimes I've gotten dirty looks in a restaraunt for ordering a hamburger and I'm thinking 'why don't they just mind their own buisness'?

I wish people on both sides would keep their eyes on their own damn plates. What you eat is a personal choice, and everyone comes to that choice for whatever variety of reasons. You can't assume that every vegetarian has some deep agenda, nor can you assume that meat eaters have no consideration for animals. You don't have to "see," "get," or "understand" something to respect it.

Exactly!! I am a meat eater but I need that protein, still love animals! I suppose I could say people that visit/support zoos and whale shows hate animals too, cause I don't! Adore animals!
Report as
Yes! I love animal's as well. I've just gotten a few looks before for eating meat in a restaraunt :/
Report as
That's ridiculous. You have to eat to live! Need a balanced diet of meat and vegetables, grains, and fruit!

You could put a head of lettuce in one throat and a rib roast in the other. Aversion therapy.

I know plenty of vegetarians and none of them preach their lifestyle on others. It's a choice they make for themselves. I just don't see the war and complaining you are referring to.

What is one man's meat is another man's poison. I was vegetarian for eight years and became very ill from it. My doctor tested me and found out I had hypothyroidism and all those wonderful soy products I was eating, were shutting down my thyroid.

But some people do well on a vegetarian diet and some do not. We can't judge or decide for another person, what is right or wrong in how they eat. We need to be understanding and tolerant, otherwise it's just a mess! : D

Agreed! And oh wow sorry for what happened to you! I'd probably get sick if I didn't eat meat since I'm already a picky eater and don't eat my greens! (unless it's salad with cucumbers and tomatoes or chief's salad or steamed vegetables in soup otherwise Bleh)
