Carnivore sex off the menu

A new phenomenon in New Zealand is taking the idea of you are what you eat to the extreme.

Vegansexuals are people who do not eat any meat or animal products, and who choose not to be sexually intimate with non-vegan partners whose bodies, they say, are made up of dead animals.

The co-director of the New Zealand Centre for Human and Animal Studies at Canterbury University, Annie Potts, said she coined the term after doing research on the lives of “cruelty-free consumers”.

“When you are vegan or vegetarian, you are very aware that when people eat a meaty diet, they are kind of a graveyard for animals,” she said.

    I recall back in the BBS days, I was on a board, with which I got bored, and then one day, one of the vegetarians on the group insisted that their sh** didn’t stink.

    I stopped logging on after that.

  2. so what is the big deal, I think they are wrong, but they have all the rights in the world to decide who they will be with.

    I would never want to be with one, and I am 100% sure they would never want to be with me ( 1 I eat meat, and 2 I am uglier then sin) but let them do what they feel they have to do, if they are wrong they are wrong and if they are right (which I doubt) they are right, but altest they are sticking to what they belive, a quality that seams to be missing in this world at times.

    #33 Omnivores yes. If you’re starving in the desert, by all means eat a rattlesnake. Keep the cow alive for it’s other useful properties it’s entire life. Tribesmen in Kenya don’t raise cattle for steaks.

    Raising cattle for beef steaks is horribly resource intensive, very few parts of the world can afford to do it.
    Coincidence that it’s the same people that have the cheapest at-the-pump fuel costs and still complain 3$ gallon gas.

    Carnivores have very short digestive tracts, and will only eat meat, like cats.
    Omnivores, like dogs, eat anything to survive.

    I said beef steaks smell great and taste good. Eating it is not 100% bad for you, it sure isn’t 100% good either, no matter how fresh or well cured.

    Just visit the window of Queue de Cheval’s curing room that street visible in downtown Montreal in front of the Bell Centre (aka Molson Centre).
    Those really, really good & tender steaks age for more than 20 days. It’s GRAY.

    All meat begins to rot as soon as it’s dead. Fact.
    Gorillas & Humans = identical digestive tracts

    Give a gorilla a charbroiled steak with spices & sauce. He’ll eat it, and become sick as hell for a few days. Same for your dog.

    Argh! all this ranting…and it’s only Angel Wong’s Mac User allegations that really hurt. That’s because I don’t own any Macs yet. Have three more years to pay off my 30K$ worth of hardware first.

    Ok so they will not have sex with people other than vegans.

    Vegans comprose what maybe 1 tenth of a percent of the population in the US?

    Well they will not be taking over anytime within the next 5000 years! Good.
    Vegans are unnatural as it is anyway. The human race has evolved to be omnivores. The teeth, digestive system, everything.

    #34 – I use a mac and I’m a carnivore with omnivore tendencies, so there. ;4)

    Plants are living things, so are animals; what makes one group the right one or not to consume.

    Anyway, considering that plants eat decomposing animals, so therefore they are are also “animal graveyards”.

    So much for having sex with vegies anymore.

  6. Dauragon88 says:

    All I have to say is Vegans (and Peta) are royally fucked when science advances enough to discover that plants feel pain.

    That will be one hella interesing day.

  7. Max Exter says:

    #18 – My wife is a vegan and I eat anything and everything. We’ve been married close to eight years now. The key in our case has been that I do not eat meat in the house, though I do eat eggs and dairy at home.

    It also helps that my wife is not a militant vegan. She follows the diet herself, but she would never push somebody else into it.

    Jägermeister – These studies on intelligence likely have little to do with the diet and everything to do with the types of people who follow the diet. Vegans in particular tend to be very introverted and contemplative. An interesting study (perhaps it’s been done?) would be to take two groups of vegans; a random sampling of American vegans and a random sampling of another group that is vegan for cultural or religious reasons.

    – me –

    #43, that was debunked by MythBusters awhile back.

    #41, there’s plenty of fuel pumps in Argentina, Brasil, Columbia, Venezuela, and they actually pay less than Americans per gallon in many places because of less taxes.

    #41 What about Buddhist monks? Quite the vegans, for thousands of years. Quite civilized. Quite healthy.

    So by telling you all that at breakfast bacon, ham & eggs – you should only eat the eggs, baked beans without lard – it’s heresy?
    Unhealthy?

    Deep down – you can feel it – humans aren’t meant to slaughter animals that eat up huge amounts of resources and pollute the environment.
    Just because a Red Neck somewhere did the dirty deed for you, doesn’t make it better.

    1.) I was joking

    2.) I was implying that someday IN THE FUTURE there would be some kind of crazy scientific advancement that would allow people to see that plants feel some kind of pain. You know….the future…….meaning not now.

    Didn’t Buddha die from eating bad pork?

    Just checking.

  11. Mister Mustard says:

    I could certainly understand not “wanting to get too close” to that woman in the photo. She looks WAAAAAY too much like the Geico caveman. I wonder if a vegan diet turns you ugly.

  12. Mister Mustard says:

    >>All meat begins to rot as soon as it’s dead.

    Just as all fruits and vegetables begin to rot as soon as they are ripped from the earth or the vine.

    Big woop. You think moldy lettuce or rotted bananas are appealing?

    So, as Mr. Fusion said, it’s a good idea to buy your food (be it animal, vegetable, or mineral [well, maybe not so much the mineral]) from a place that does a brisk business selling inspected merchandise.

  13. paperweight says:

    I have never understood why it is not OK to kill animals for food, but it is OK to kill Plants!

  14. JoaoPT says:

    Vegans should not breed with Meat eaters. They should breed with their kind over generations and form a different race. And they would be called Vhumans and they would compete for world domination… And in the future Humans would be enslaved by them and eat nothing else than salty porridge…

    And then we could sell the meat to the French because they are willing to spend an obscene amount of money for tiny bits of over the top meals.

  16. Misanthropic Scott says:

    #46 – Dauragon88,

    The answer, if one really does not want to kill for food, is to become a fruitarian (frugivore?) and eat only fruit. It can be done, since fruit includes tomatoes, cucumbers and the like, in fact anything with seeds is a fruit.

    The difference is that no one dies when one eats fruit. Fruit is a symbiotic relationship. The plant offers food in exchange for spreading seeds. Granted, we no longer spread the seeds in the normal way, but spread them we do. So this works.

    Of course, this is seriously radical and not for me. It’s probably also hard to get a truly balanced diet. This is the main reason I still eat meat. I would have to go way overboard if I suddenly decided to stop killing for my meals.

    So, instead, I often say an atheists grace before meal, usually just for shock value. My version goes like this:

    Food is good; thank you food for dying so I could eat (breakfast | lunch | dinner).

    And, yes, I know I am what I eat. I’m meat. Meat, meet meat.

  17. Thomas says:

    I have a simple solution when I encounter vegans. I tell them, with all honesty, that I too am a vegan. However, I prefer consuming some of my vegetables pre-processed by other animals. Similarly, I tell everyone that I’m black as is everyone; some just have to go back a few more generations than others.

  18. Timbo says:

    I’m an ovu-lacto-carno-vegetarian. I eat anything that doesn’t eat me first!

    I’ll become a vegan right after they sell it to the eskimos!

  19. Uncle Dave says:

    #55: “The difference is that no one dies when one eats fruit.”

    But since fruits are the seeds of the next generation, doesn’t eating them prevent future generations of plants and trees to not be grown? Isn’t this the same kind of thing that cause the Catholics to be against birth control since it interferes with propagating the species and all that? Isn’t eating fruit, therefore, tantamount to murdering future, unborn generations??!? Oh, the fruitmanity!

    ROFL #58

    this article sounds like my parents – who have been hardcore vegans for over 25 years – and that was some tough shit back in the 80’s

  21. traaxx says:

    So those two butchers are going around killing innocent plants. Those guys should wear some clothes. Don’t they know that every chair they use, every paper product they use; comes at the expense of a poor animals habitat or at the expense of a plants poor life.

    If they were truely in tune with their religious beliefs they would simply live on dirt, sun light and air. Just like the noble plant life that is slowly disappearing every year. Just look at the rain forest.

    Hypocrites………………………………………………

  22. Misanthropic Scott says:

    #57 – Timbo,

    s/eskimos/Inuit/g # Geek speak for change eskimos to Inuit in your post.

    Funny post. However, Eskimo is considered offensive by the Inuit. Eskimo is actually a Cree word meaning “eater of raw meat”. It is true that the Inuit eat raw meat. However, most people don’t like to be named by the food they eat. Inuit is the proper plural form of the word. Inuk is singular.

    #58 – Uncle Dave,

    Actually, the seeds of most fruit are evolved to pass through undigested and get mixed with fertilizer in the process. However, the way we raise fruit, you’re correct. Some seeds become exceedingly well cared for while others get thrown away and never given a chance. I’m sure you could find some religious wacko to object to that. However, most religious wackos seem to think humans are special. They may be right, special as in special ed.

    And, on the topic of religious wackos and killing, what about all the poor trees getting killed around the time of the winter solstice? Oh the cordage of those axe and chainsaw murderers!

    Meat, it’s what to eat.

    I’m one step further on – I’m a New Zealand Atheistsexual Vegansexual.

    Can’t stand religion, can’t stand corpse eaters.

    If god didn’t want us to eat animals, why did he make them out of meat?

    Comment by Atomic Bitchwax — 7/31/2007 @ 4:58 am

    Uuuuuuuuuuh, if god didn’t want us to eat humans, why did he give us meat? Does anyone here support cannibalism?

    I’m a vegan myself ^^ and really, the lack of tolerance here is appaling. Jeez, come on you lot, plants don’t have central nervous systems… they don’t feel pain. If I went and blowtorched a dog, would you say I was cruel? Probably, because I’d be causing the dog extreme pain. So if causing pain to cows and sheep and hens and all other animals used in the factory farming industry is wrong too (because whats the difference between them and the dog I just blowtorched – they have incredible pain inflicted upon them too) then why would you eat meat or use slaughter byproducts? Just a thought. Don’t be too unforgiving to us, okay?
