I have to admit to you Menard...
There were two reasons I had for writing this thread.
The first was obvious...to find out how people here like their steaks cooked.
The other was to find out who here is a vegetarian or a vegan.
If you don't eat meat, I totally respect that.
I mean...who am I to tell you what you should and shouldn't eat?
Now please don't get offended, but I've always personally viewed vegetarianism and especially veganism as a psychological disorder or the direct symptom of another psychological disorder within that person's mind.
I'm sure I'll catch hell for saying that.
I've talked to both vegetarians and hardcore vegans and I don't buy most of their reasons for not eating meat.
Some people claim that they don't eat meat for environmental, ethical, economical or health reasons...and I respect that too.
Doesn't mean I have to believe it though.
Humans have been eating meat for millions of years.
Why is meat singled out among all of the foods out there?
You don't see anybody claiming to be a meatetarian and swearing off fruits & veggies do you?
The only acceptable and logical reasons I've directly heard from vegetarians and vegans as to why they don't eat meat is that they just don't like the taste of it or it's against their religion.
That is totally understandable to me and I accept that.
There are certain foods I won't eat because I think that they're just plain nasty.
Like Chinese food.
But all of the other reasons they give like economical or ethical objections just don't hold any weight with me.
I firmly believe that people who don't eat meat for those specific reasons suffer from a psychological disorder.
Now I wait for ulthar to come along and rip into me...
