Daywalker: I have posted MANY posts that discuss my distaste with "anonymous" meat eaters. I have posted other posts that express my frustration with specific
, but non-famous
meat eaters (eg. my post entitled something like the time has come for me to retire from the activist seen" where I expressed my disappointment with somebody that I know. Others have as well. So i dont know what you mean by your comment "uh, would you post a post about every other meat eater" or whatever you said. The short answer is, yes, I would and I have - not one post, though, for each meat eating anonymous
troll out there. That would take millions and billions of posts!
I posted this on orlando bloom because I remember there was a thread about sexy vegans and vegetarians. I also remember that somebody, maybe me, had suggested that he was a sexy vegetarian. Well, that information no longer is accurate, if it ever even was. The fucking idiot was chomping on a hamburger and described it as "good food we all need once in a while." I posted this to set the record straight.
Madcat: I honestly dont know where PETA gets its "who is vegetarian who is not" information, but it seems that they just label poeple veg without knowing for certain if they are or are not. While everybody here knows that I support many of PETA's great works, I think its careless use of that "label" does nothing to help animals. In fact, it UNINTENTIONALLY sends a message that vegetarianism is just a phase for many or most people (or celebrities, to be exact), and casts it in a frivolous light. or maybe it reveals how flaky celebs are.
My point: PETA is great in many ways, but I take what they say about the "Who is Who of veganism" with a grain of salt. It is ridiculous how inaccurate PETA is about that kind of stuff. Clearly, he ISNT veg
. This Oprah show seemed to be a very recent one, and the guy was proudly
woofing down a hamburger with no remorse, hesitation or guilt. SEEING IS BELIEVING!!!
And another point is that celebs are in a position to reach a lot of people. For example, if Orlando Bloom had promoted a tasty vegan dish, that would have been better. Millions of people tune in to Oprah, and millions of people heard an anti-naimal message from a supposedly compassion veg celebrity. Celebs can get the message out to a large number of people or "fans." I get disappointed and frustrated when I see any meat eating troll of a celeb push or promote the torture and suffering of animals.
