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

  1. I’m paleo. Eat lots of meat.

    However, who ever wrote this is beyond ignorant. You’re conflating vegetarians with vegans for starters.

    Who hurt you?

  2. Another carnivoreatan
    Charlatan and carnivore
    Most of us can get by fine without eating animal flesh
    If its soo important, do as the tee shirt says ” I like guns and meat
    If you dont like it stay away”
    Fair enough
    But we cant unfortunately when most the cheap food is meat and mads amount of grains and other things such as grass is used to raise animals for food.
    I dont know where it actually says eating meat is absolute necessity

    • Regarding point 1: True, on a vegetarian diet animals do still die. But NOT AS MANY die. Think about it, omnivores also eat grains, vegetables, and ON TOP OF THAT they eat meat. Crops have to be grown to feed those animals (70% of our agricultural land use!!!), which adds on to the already significant number of animals meat-eaters strip of life.
      Regarding point 2: Actually, by now, 2021, there have been studies done pointing to a lower risk of heart disease (and better performance among athletes!). And, even if there ‘aren’t any health benefits’, there aren’t any significant hindrances being a vegetarian brings to your health when compared to being omnivorous.
      Regarding point 3: There is now impossible meat if not being able to eat meat is really that big of an issue! Plus, vegetarians don’t necessarily opt for cereals and breads, they, quite obviously, to replace their meat intake, would opt for lentils, beans, protein filled veggies (which are defo healthier than meat because they come sans the animal fat).
      Regarding point 4: Yes, obviously! But the difference here is that vegetarians are trying, trying to reduce the amount of animals killed, by not being DIRECT consumers of FARMED meat!

  3. This was an enjoyable read, as I personally find the holier-than-thou attitude of most vegetarians insufferable. Oh, and the comments so far read like but-hurt winging.

  4. I completely agree with you, but what the fuck is wrong with you saying “Vegetarians are actually eating animals without knowing it!”, its like saying men/women and oil are the exact same because both are organic, or because dead humans over years turn to oil, and that’s fucking stupid.

  5. I wonder how many Christans are veggiterian of so read the Bible God put animals on the earth to be eaten so not eating them is like saying God is wrong

  6. The pros are basically 3:

    B12 might be readily available in enough quantities to cover the RDA
    Most essential amino-acids are available and you don’t need any extra effort to get a complete RDA for all of them
    Iron in heme form which has a better bio-availabilty
    The cons are several:

    Massive use of soil for livestock feeding, accounting for as much as 2/3 of the available arable soil.
    C02 and methane emission
    Water contamination through dung
    Massive use of water for irrigation (see point 1) and direct use by livestock
    Deforestation
    (see again 1)
    Displacement of populations including land grabbing (1 again) causing refugees and starvation (and hence political crises like the recent alt-right plague and the rise of Trump)
    Health problems due to air contamination also through dung
    Spread of animal diseases to the human population like Q-Fever, bird flu and swine flu
    Obesity epidemics taxing the health care systems and thus taking off funds that could be better used somewhere else
    Reduction of biodiversity that could impair future developments in biology and medicine.

    • You realize that just as much soil, land, and water usage is used for making your vegetables right? Obesity is also caused by excessive carbohydrate intake… you can literally get fat from eating bread alone as excess glucose broken down from the bread is stored as glycogen. When glycogen stores max out, they are converted into fat called tryglycerides… that same stubborn fat that builds up around organs and around the belly. Our early ancestors ate primarily meat as well as vegetables… but meat was a much better fuel than any carbohydrate at the time since it lasts longer in the body as a fuel. Furthermore, our bodies CANNOT process cellulose which is found in every plant. At this point, you are just spewing liberal talking points… and even Trump bashing… how very mature of you.

  7. Vegans dont get vitamin b12 they get vit b12 injections too much vitamin deficiencies & out of balance hormones. For women no boobs and small ass, for men manboobs and little to no muscle. Very low protein in plants and so much sprayed crops like soybeans (toxic). Also vegans got green skin like tf

  8. Vegetarians say that humans and animals are equal so surely that means animals and mosquitos/flies are equal too, but how many times have I seen vegetarians kill a fly? Too many times. Also, chickens are herbivores, dogs are carnivores, we are omnivores, I think that not eating meat is like forcing a dog to eat eggplant for the rest of its life. Then vegetarians say, you’re breeding thousands of animals just to kill them for food, but they grow veggies everyday just to cut off their heads for food!. When I point that out they say; “But it doesn’t hurt as much for plants!” But then, aren’t everyone/everything equal?

    Reply
    • Actually, chicken and dogs are omnivorous like us. Even many great apes are omnivorous. Cats are true carnivores and cannot function without meat. Sheep are true herbivores. Personally, I rather like my primarily carnivorous diet as there’s no vegetable that’s as delicious as meat. Meat has sublime flavor… vegetables upset my stomach acid if it’s not accompanied with meat.
