The age's epicure section was a vegetarian issue today and I picked it up eagerly to read.

The feature article is about a former vegetarian who describes her vegetarian self as 'annoying' and talks about mince meat being the vegetarian's downfall. The restaurant feature is a few good words among a list of famous chefs who denounce vegetarian cooking and one who receives applause for stating he 'doesn't serve vegetarians.'

and the 'vegetarian issue' is merely a three and a half page section.

I'm furious.

Found the article online and helps confirm my decision not to buy 'newspapers' any more was the right one.

I couldn't read it all. I was getting too pissed off. If a vegetarian can't resist the temptation of rotting animal flesh, then I don't think they were a vegetarian to begin with.

That author also sucks at writing. I found it very difficult to follow, she kept changing the topic.

"Vegetarians usually spout 3 justifications for their choice. Moral, health and environmental. All 3 are misguided or wrong.
Moral - ALL food involves killing other animals in some way. Land must be cleared for agriculture after all.
Health - Humans spent millions of years evolving as a meat eater. We are designed to eat it. Grains however, we did not - and that is why we are so fat as a nation and culture.
Environmental - Agriculture is the biggest environmental destructor. Aussie beef is way more green than foreign soy."


Oh lawdy.. I have to stop reading these comments or I'll be tempted to start something, haha.

Who ever said that is right.

Which is why I'm going to pull out the parsley in my garden, when I cleared the weeds to plant it I probably killed some kind of microscopic insects.

I better start eating meat soon too, my carnivorous teeth should becoming through any day now. Seeing as we've evolved past those dodgy herbivore teeth...

Sure eating meat contributes to environmental destruction, but so does agriculture! There's the perfect excuse for me to eat meat and veggies! If I can't fix one, I won't fix either!

(Sorry I couldn't help myself. laugh )
