I realize this is not really news worthy as no one cares what these vegans think, but I thought I would take the opportunity to point out some hypocrisy.
No sex, please, you’re a carnivore.
A new phenomenon in New Zealand is taking the idea of you are what you eat to the extreme.
Vegansexuals are people who do not eat any meat or animal products, and who choose not to be sexually intimate with non-vegan partners whose bodies, they say, are made up of dead animals.
The title of the piece is “Carnivore Sex Off The Menu.” I hate to point out the obvious, but people who eat meat aren’t carnivores … they’re omnivores. Just like all humans are by design.
I would also like to point out that there is no human body that is free of something that was once alive. Even the strictest vegans are responsible for some member of the animal kingdom dying. Even if it’s only an insect, but I guess the poor insects don’t get the love from vegans.
Cruelty-Free Consumption in New Zealand: A National Report on the Perspectives and Experiences of Vegetarians and other Ethical Consumers asked 157 people nationwide about everything from battery chickens to sexual preferences.
Many female respondents described being attracted to people who ate meat, but said they did not want to have sex with meat-eaters because their bodies were made up of animal carcasses.
Again, there is no such thing a cruelty-free consumption. Everything we take into our bodies has some form of life on it, and thus dies.
One vegan respondent from Christchurch said: “I believe we are what we consume, so I really struggle with bodily fluids, especially sexually.”
Another Christchurch vegan said she found non-vegans attractive, but would not want to be physically close to them.
“I would not want to be intimate with someone whose body is literally made up from the bodies of others who have died for their sustenance,” she said.
This is where it gets funny, and very hypocritical.
The first lady sounded like a prude, and I won’t address her issue with bodily fluids. The second, however, intrigues me.
She won’t have sex with someone who eats meat because something “died for their sustenance?” Well, I would refuse to have sex with her because her body is full of others who’ve died for HER sustenance. Plants are, after all, living, breathing, feeling creatures. How could I live with myself knowing that she not only was willing to kill a living creature, but to torture said creature by pulling off its equivalent to fingers, and arms?
Nichola Kriek could understand people not wanting to get too close to non-vegan or non-vegetarians.
“When you are vegan or vegetarian, you are very aware that when people eat a meaty diet, they are kind of a graveyard for animals,” she said.
Yeah, and your body is a graveyard to billions of living organisms … including plants.
