I'm omnivorous and I like meat because our body absorbs animal protiens quicker

I love eating helpless animals hehe
No, I'm not a vegetarian. I do eat meat.....As said before, humans are omnivores, so we eat both plants and animals.
I also completely understand the dietary aspect of it, even though (from what I'm aware) vegetarians tend to have to make up for lost nutrients and vitamins, through vitamin pills (??)
However, I find the concept of 'veganism' (hard core vegetarianism) a bit peculiar. Not eating cheese because its considered animal by product? No milk? No eggs? Doesn't make sense to me.
I do understand the issue of vegetarianism on moral grounds, i.e. inhumane companies mass-producing animals just to kill.....but when it's not eating animals simply because something dies in the process (like, even if the cow grew up on the happiest farm on Earth, and not in some huge factory..and still saying it's cruelty)...that one kinda gets me. I mean, when eating plants, the plant dies. It's still a living organism, and it still dies. Why then, do people have no problem killing and eating plants? Simply because it looks inert and won't run if you come at it with a knife?
That view of vegetarianism is really self-serving. 'Oh, okay..this thing has eyes...can't kill it'....hm...this plant won't see me coming...goodbye sucka! Like, both are alive, so if you condemn the killing of one, by all rights you SHOULD condemn both??? My thoughts anyway.
Plus, if we don't kill animals now...they'll kill us first. If you watch cows in their natural habitat, they are very agressive and regularly get into knife fights. Anyone remember 'The Great Cow-Shanking of 1935'??? I certainly do.....my gran-pappy got shanked by a cow during that time....as well as several hundred other innocent farmers....*sniff*

::The Monk enters the meat-infected thread::
Oh my, AO is filled with meat-lovers. Knowing that the majority of AO are advocates of meat products, I will have to refrain myself from giving my advocacy on vegetarianism. For if I did, you meat babies wouldn't listen to me, anyways. My voice will die before it enters your mind! Also, I don't want to start a meat revolution. Haha.
As for me, I am a pure vegetarian like Mayu. Afterall, I am a Monk. Haha. The day that you will find me eating meat, is the day that I will enter that club thing that Kastelic-sami mentioned in that other thread. So, not in a million years!
@Chubz: By drinking milk and eating cheese, one is not killing a living creature. Where as the egg, it is the place, where the embryo develops, so by eating eggs, one is taking away the life of something else.
P.S. My all the animals that you ingested take revenge upon you in their next life, you meat-lovers!!! Haha. Just kidding.
