What a bunch of weaklings. "OH, I wont eat meat because I think animals are treated like shit!" Guess what moron, you not buying animal products does not change one thing. It just means that there is more meat for everyone else. Oh, did i forget to mention that there are millions of new meat eaters born everyday with actual levels of testosterone?

Enjoy your misguided ideals, weakling.

Actually, everyone that does start to eat less meat makes a big difference. At least in the U.S. meat consumption has been declining since 2004, which means each year less and less animals are subjected to miserable conditions, which is a good thing.

How cute. OP thinks it is important to defend his top post. Go take your estrogen pills and go back to your room so you can cry about all the suffering animals.

You're confusing defending with participating.

You suck. Not necessarily because of your beliefs, but mainly the horrible way that you convey them. If being a weakling means questioning socially entrenched beliefs and abiding by rational consideration instead, then call me a weakling. If being strong means being like you, then I'd like to be the opposite.

Good. You would make a horrible addition to the Prothean Empire. Vegetarianism was seen as a sign of weakness, gpoing agsainst the cosmic imperative.

The Strong flourish, and the weak are dominated. You are nothing more than member of the weak. I'm willing to bet you release spiders out inot nature with jars instead of crushing them under your feet, as was intended by evolution.

You should stick to estrogen pills and dresses.

So basically, you think that might makes right? That's hardly a very interesting position.

Have you ever heard of the naturalistic fallacy?

Yes. The Strong Flourish, and the weak perish.

I would just like to point out to everyone that doesn't know "JaviktheProthean_ " is a Game character from the Mass Effect series (Mass effect 3 to be precise) and in game the character "Javik" is Elitist to all others that are different from his race. so don't worry about this troll and ignore him :D

TL;DR: Obvious Troll is Obvious.

I bet you compensate for your obesity by projecting on others. A Pity how humans allow themselves to get fat.

Wow. I can hardly even begin to comprehend your idiotic statement. If you think acting like a total douche and eating a large quantity of meat makes you more of a man then you have been severely misguided.

To me it's not necessarily about making a difference. I know I alone am not changing much. But by not eating meat, I at least am not at fault for what is going on and I can distance myself from it.

Exactly. Rather be part of a solution then be a part of the problem.

Coward? Petty insults will get you nowhere, primitive. Our species dominated the Galaxy, while yours was living in caves being studied by our scientists.

You should be thanking vegans for reducing demand and therefore reducing your meat prices.
