10. That's not going to make it as an argument
unless your own mother never ate meat, either. Face it - in our history, human beings are omnivores.

I lived with a vegan, too, so I'm not in any way unfamiliar with the lifestyle. The reason why I bring it up is because you suddenly decided to be sanctimonious and accuse meat eaters of being just as cruel as this person.

Which, of course, is bullshit, and you pretty much know that.

See how all or nothing philosophies - and particularly judgmental ones - get torpedoed? Hell, I doubt even my vegan ex would have reacted the same way you did to this article, which is with anything but horror, and more "Oh well, that's what all of you shameful meat-eaters really are at the core!"
