4 Reasons Why Becoming A Vegetarian Is A Fucking Stupid Idea

Note: This post is not meant to target those who are vegetarians for religious reasons or those who are vegetarians because they have some chronic disease that doesn’t allow them to eat meat. Instead, I’m targeting every single idiot out there who is a vegetarian for reasons like animal cruelty and health benefits.

Edit 9/10/14: Alright time to clear some air here. I started FitMole back in June 2011 and wrote this article in Aug 2011. Back when I started the blog I was trying to discover the best way to generate more traffic. So I thought to myself, “what’s the best way to get people talking?” So I came up with this article and the slightly edgy, and some might even call immature headline. And yes, I know the article can be seen as a bit offensive and ignorant. I still stand by my claims 100% that going vegetarian isn’t healthier than eating meat, but I do take full responsibility for some of the slightly ignorant comments I’ve made about animal cruelty. Other than that, can the person who keeps sending me death threat emails stop now 🙂

First off I just wanted to say I’m sorry. I normally don’t swear in the post title, but I just have to emphasize how stupid it is to become a vegetarian. It’s stupid, ridiculous, unnecessary, stupid, and did I mention it’s FUCKING stupid.

I have a couple of friends and family members that are vegetarians, and don’t get me wrong, I don’t hate them. I just can’t understand why they decided to follow this lifestyle.

When I ask them why they decided to become a vegetarian, they give me reasons like “Oh, it makes me feel good,” “Because meat is bad for your health,” or “I don’t want to harm animals.” Whenever I hear these reasons, I just put on my best “nod and pretend to agree with you” face.

So why is becoming a vegetarian stupid? Lets take a look:

1) You aren’t saving the lives of animals

I get it. You don’t like it when the heads of baby cows and pigs are chopped off, but do you really think eating that tofu burger is saving lives.

Fruits, vegetables, and grains are a staple among vegetarian diets, but did you know that millions of animals die just so you can enjoy that piece of bread? Eating foods like grains means destroying ecosystems and all of its inhabitants. It means killing all the little animals, birds, bugs, and microorganisms that live among the fields.

Do you know how many little animals and microorganisms die when farmers use machines to plow through wheat fields? The answer is a lot more than 1 cow.

As cheesy as it sounds, everything in life requires sacrifice. Animals are killed to get meat and ecosystems are destroyed to get grains. So the next time I’m eating a steak, don’t you dare judge me for killing a cow.

2) There is absolutely zero scientific proof showing that going vegetarian is healthy

When I want to believe something, I need proof. I need definite scientific proof.

And no, proof doesn’t mean reading a quote in Shape or MensHealth magazine. In order to convince me about anything I need to see a scientific study that shows causation not correlation.

For example, eating less food will make you loss weight.  This is a stone cold fact that will remain true no matter what.

However, there is absolutely ZERO proof showing that going vegetarian will decrease your risk of heart disease, cancer, or whatever nasty stuff you can think of.

The only thing we have are thousands of studies showing a correlation between an increased risk of disease and an increase in meat consumption. We have studies that conclude that eating meat “may increase” your risk of heart disease, but this doesn’t mean crap. It’s inconclusive and doesn’t prove anything. Saying that your risk of heart disease “may increase” from eating red meat is like saying you “may” be able to breath fire if you eat enough jalapenos.

And yes, before you get all crazy on me, I have read the China Study a.k.a the vegetarian’s wet dream. For those who don’t know, the China Study was a big study conducted by Dr. Campbell who basically concluded that meat is killer.

While the China Study garnered a ton of media attention a couple years ago, it is also an incredibly flawed study despite it’s massive scale. But talking about all the flaws in the China Study is beyond the scope of this article, so let me turn you over to a great article written by Denise Minger of Raw Food SOS. She did an amazing job in analyzing the China Study and basically debunked every single aspect of it.

People need to stop believing the mainstream media, and need to start looking at the actual research and facts.

3) You don’t get to eat meat

I know this is a bit obvious, but being a vegetarian means that you don’t get to eat meat. EVER. That means no steak, bacon, horse, or BBQ ribs. The closest thing you’ll ever get to meat is some glued together crap made of wheat and soy.

And please, don’t tell me that your veggie burger tastes better than my double bacon cheeseburger, okay? Don’t tell me “Oh, but it tastes just like the real thing.” No it doesn’t, you rationalizing crazy person. It doesn’t matter how hard you try, a piece of tofu will never taste as good as a greasy piece of beef.

So if vegetarians are so concerned about their health, then why do they opt for highly processed foods likes breads and cereals that are not found in nature as opposed to real animal meat which has been around since…. forever. It makes no freakin sense.

4) Vegetarians are actually eating animals without knowing it!

This past summer, I took a Biology 101 class at a community college to fulfill some general education requirements for my degree. While the class was a complete waste of my time and I pretty much bull-shitted my way through it, I did learn something quite interesting.

I learned about the food web, which is basically description of “who eats who” in the environment.

It goes something like this:

fox eats rabbit => fox poops into the soil => the living soil then absorbs the poop(which includes the rabbit) => fruit and vegetable plants absorb that exact same soil to grow => humans eat those same fruits and vegetables

This process happens EVERYWHERE in nature.

So even if you’re a vegetarian, you’re technically eating dead animals, albeit in a more indirect liquid form. But last time I checked, vegetarians were all about saving lives no matter what.

Don’t be a vegetarian

Despite everything you’ve heard, vegetarians are NOT the health conscious animal saving saints that they’re made out to be.

Instead, vegetarians:

  • Support the destruction of ecosystems to obtain their food
  • Kill millions of small animals, bugs, and microorganisms
  • Aren’t saving their health since there’s absolutely zero scientific proof showing that meat is bad for you
  • Are actually eating meat without knowing it
  • Are simply misinformed about every aspect of the vegetarian lifestyle

So if you’re a vegetarian, then hopefully I’ve done my job to piss you off beyond belief, and if I converted you, then that’s cool too.

Once again, the only reason why you should be a vegetarian is for religious reasons or because you have a some chronic disease that doesn’t allow you to eat meat. But even if you’re a vegetarian for religious reasons, you might want to start questioning the logic behind your beliefs, just saying.

Alright guys, be sure to share this article with every single vegetarian you know, and to close out this article I have 3 parting words:

FUCK YOU PETA

Totally loved your post !!!!
I can’t agree more. I’m a 50 yo woman, I have a neighbor family who are vegan. They have a 22 yo daughter, she is so puney and weak !!!! At my age I can out run her, out lift her and last her in any physical activity, definitely NOT healthy in my book. She and her mother may be twigs but I would much rather be able to dig post holes manually and construct a barn. I did just that 2 yrs ago, not bad for an old broad. I look at these two woman and wonder if it’s a challenge just to get dressed in the morning !!

I understand that vegans are against meat…but why are so much vegan products simulating meat or milk products? To avoid negative effects from meat, meat must be just well processed,(meat cooking tip : before cooking meat just put that bloody piece in a bowl of cold water and let there for 1 hour,if needed change waters and after that wash well that piece of meat and voila, you will have a tastier and healthier meat). From what i know and what i felt…meat with blood is bad. I think nowdays people have kind of psychiatric issues and are so lost in their position to this world… and of course everybody is seeking for a salvation so people start to believe in whatever they think is ok but because they are lost , in most cases people believe in nonsense things, doing nonsense things, and yeah… thats sad.

LOL this article’s comment section is full of pissed-off hispter dipshits. That’s why they’re so fucking stupid: they lack vital proteins in their brains. Nature is all about eating each other, so don’t be an oversensitive asshat over that, jeez. Fuck you, hipsters XD

Thank you for the laugh! This is hilarious and only proves what weak arguments non-vegans have against going vegan. P.S. do some actual research unlike the very little you did in preparing this poorly thought out article. Going vegan helps save the planet, there is proof and if you think that the amount of small animals (rabbits, etc) that are killed due to commercial veg farming is anywhere near factory farming and that the two can even be compared, well, I’m sorry that your public school system failed you so miserably, you senseless twat. Go watch earthlings and have a veggie burger on me – give your overtaxed colon a break.

1. Eventually we will. Eventually the world will realize that veganism is the key to saving us. In the meantime, none of us even like meat. It’s morally wrong to eat dead flesh and it’s also quite disgusting.

2. Yes actually there is. Meat is one of the leading causes of heart disease and cancer. It is also healthier for the planet considering the meat industry is the number one polluter on the globe.

3. As I said earlier, we don’t even like meat. It’s gross and morally wrong to consume dead beings. No thanks.

4. Did that rabbit get tortured? Are we physically eating flesh? When something decomposes it means the atoms and molecules break up and become different things. Especially when that thing has already been digested. If you say eating plants is eating meat because the meat decomposed into the soil the plant grew from, then we would also be eating what goes in our garbage, litter, and God knows what else that has been decomposed into the ground.

So technically, you’re wrong.

This is such bullshit lmao! I can’t even… I don’t think theres any point explaining why this article is bogus. But what i will say is “you aren’t saving the lives of animals” is so very close minded. See, it took 400 years for white people to believe black people weren’t inferior to them. And its still happening now. So, the small amount of vegetarians isn’t doing much now, but when most of the population stops eating meat, it will make a difference. Injustice doesn’t live forever.

    Billions of people aren’t just going to stop eating meat. We have been eating meat for 1.5 million years, and other animals eat other animals, and we are animals as well.

    Your comparison to white males degrading black people to people eating meat is an overtly ignorant, and imbecilic statement. And if you think injustice doesn’t live forever, then mayhpas you should take off your sunshine glasses and see the world for what it truly is; cynical and crude, but eating meat is neither of these.

      I agree with the fact that the comparison is slightly bogus, but as humans, we were designed to eat vegetables, not meat. Think of other omnivores and carnivores, if you look at things such as their teeth, they are completely different to ours. The sharp canines of dogs and cats were designed to easily chew their way through hard bits of meat, while (although we do have a few canines) most of our teeth are quite differently shaped, designed to break up things like vegetables. In fact, our digestory tract is 4x longer than other carnivores which is ideal to digest starches and such. You have a point where billions wont stop eating meat, but if we switched to meat before, because it had many advantages, what can stop us from switching back to plants, which nowadays are enhanced to be bigger, better and more packed with vitamins, and less fat and such which is found in red meat, which can lead to heart disease. The population most likely wont ever properly switch from eating meat/produce from animals for a long time, but I can imagine that a large portion of the population, in time, could end up eating less meat, but still having dairys and eggs. This may be insignificant to most people, but even a small part of the earths population would end up making it so that there are less animals bred for food in this world, such as cows. You may think that there will be more for milk and eggs, but actually there most likely will be less, due to the fact that milk is a source that doesnt need the cow itself to be replaced (after being killed), since its fairly renewable with enough grass, which means less of the billions of cows we have! Less greenhouse gases. Chickens, on the other hand, dont have as big of a carbon footprint as cows so therefore it wont change too much since eggs is a fairly used product, even by specific vegetarians (ovo-vegtarians). SO technically, it is a good idea, but both what you said and this topic is right in some of the reasons, but it isnt an entirely stupid idea.

        This is bullshit. You complete and utter cretin.

        We have canines, canines are for tearing meat, not fucking vegetables, do herbivores? No they don’t for a fucking good reason, they don’t need them

        You are TOTALLY wrong in just about everything you’ve just said. Why do so many people, even “guilty” meat eaters believe we’re designed for vegetables? We are not. Otherwise we would not be able to eat meat at all. Our teeth are more like a cat or dogs – you even had to admit we have canines. The fact that they’re small is irrelevant. A plant eater has more large flat molar type teeth for grinding down grasses which are difficult to eat. And our digestive tract is not 4x that of a carnivore. When you measure the length of the intestine versus the animal’s body length, these are the figures: cats and dogs about 5 times their body length, cows THIRTY times. Humans? About 7. Our closest ape relatives, chimps are omnivores – they eat insects and even hunt other primates. The hominds that gave rise to humans all ate meat in some form along with veg and fruit. What they didn’t eat was grains. Amongst all the apes, we have the smallest digestive system and the biggest brain – the gorilla, a vegetarian has the largest digestion and the smallest brain – it’s the ape equivalent of a cow. You’re also living in a fantasty world by virtually ignoring the huge environmental impact of vegetable and grain farms. Large swathes of the US, for example, are given over to the production of wheat. As was pointed out in the article, these massive production facilities displace entire eco systems, destroying huge numbers of animals and unwanted plants. The whole thing is sprayed with dangerous insecticides and fertilisers – further eco-damage. Finally, the problem is not meat eating but too many humans. Even if everything you said about the environmental impact was true, eventually there’s not going to be enough food to go around to feed everyone and it doesn’t matter if you eat meat or veg. Already, 7 billion humans is too much for the planet to sustain. And then there’s the ethical side. The idea that it’s wrong for one animal to eat another is a human invention. It happens all the time in the natural world. Like most vegetarians, you seem to have no concept of how nature actually works. It needs predation and predators otherwise everything would die – even the bugs and microbes in the soil. I guess people believe the vegetarian’s myths is because we’ve become dislocated from Nature, out of touch. Most people don’t know how eco systems work at all. By the way the idea that saturated animal fats are bad for us is nothing but a myth. Everyone’s pursuing a low fat, high carb diet. Just go into any supermarket – you’ll be lucky to find butter, goose fat etc. The shelves are groaning under the weight of low fat, sugar laden gunk. The result? Heart disease and cancer are not going away anytime soon. In fact cancer rates are now 1 in 2. They used to be 1 in 3.

I agree with the article, no matter what you eat in todays world, you are killing animals, eating bread, buying eco cookies, where do you think all the packaging is done? all your “vegie” stuff, and vegie make up- which im sure exist. ?

Factories produce everything, everything goes into nature, by everything i mean waste. animals die. You can eat your pain killers, for headache and another medicine, or drugs, all you use in todays world is made through the animals suffering, they have been used and being used as a test objects in labs, theres no avoiding it unless you do everything yourself starting from the ground. So being a vegan is as stupid as buying gluten free food.

Many people dont even know what gluten is, they just saw article in some stupid newspaper and they follow it blindly. Drinking “diet” coke, without knowing that instead of sugar there’s bunch of unhealthy chemicals in it.

Follow the “society! live “healthy.
