Everything you eat is, was, or is derived from living organisms.
Yes, even tofu.
I love my vegan friends, but I can do without the preaching. Humans are animals, and we've evolved to the point where we can utilize other animals to sustain ourselves. We're Apex predators.
Sharks don't leave a fish alone because he might have a family, or feelings (though, if you're a Nirvana fan, you know they don't).
An owl doesn't stop eating mice because they're cute.
An Eagle doesn't turn back mid-swoop because the bunny he's after gave him a sad, wobbly-eyed look.
These creatures are all arguably far more majestic than humans.
I can already feel my vegan and vegetarian friends (yes, they are two completely different species) seething.
So, here's the thing:
Give me your gotchas, questions, and rebuttals, and I'll answer them. For one week only, I'm opening the door and letting you guys pelt me with all the foot-stamping outcries of injustice.
So go ahead.
I will answer them.
In my own special way.
