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. So like any vegetarian/vegan with half brain knows PETA is total bullshit….Just saying. Thanks for stereotyping all of us dude. Your prejudice is fucking ridiculous.

  2. Hilarious to read the hateful views between vegetarians and meat eaters. Seeing as there were so many grammatical and spelling errors by the vegetarians, there’s all the proof needed to show how “fucking stupid” non meat eaters really are.

  3. What a silly article. You feel unbridled rage at people who live a different lifestyle than you that neither harms you or your ability to continue living your own lifestyle. There are so many things to be justifiably angry about, and yet you take issue with people who want to improve their health, the world’s health and be kind to living creatures. What kindles that incessant anger then? Does it really tick you off to see such non-conformity? Do you place this much blind faith in all norms This seems more like your own inner conflict than a problem for vegetarians and vegans.

  4. Arguing about food, ok. Can’t people just eat what they please without any notice. It really doesn’t affect anyone else.

  5. As a person who has done a lot of farm labor in my life I totally agree with this article it is not like catch and release for mice rats squirels or gophers will save the crops grown to feed you vegetarians the only way to guarantee you’re vegetables and fruit are not destroyed by those animals is to make sure they are dead. This is a fact not an opinion if you release them into another field they will only find there way back and then you’re precious vegetarian life style and I mean that very loosely will not exist because you have spared the lives of the rodents I just named not to mention the mass number of snails and insects you have to kill again for every snail and insect you spare the life of that is one less vegetable or fruit on the table and the same goes for the other animals I mentioned.

  6. Vegans/vegetarians are morons that do nothing, but waste food by not consuming the food we are given. Instead of bitching and “saving animals” try using their resources like food so they don’t die in vain. And people merely want to do this to “save the animals” to make themselves feel better about themselves with no effort, and not actually help by doing anything for animals preyed upon other than have their same diet

  7. You guys know if we were all vegans some diseases like corona virus wouldn’t be affecting humans. Vegetarians rule and I hate this ignoramus person who typed this stupid passage. I am the future environment saver and I hate being a human because all we do is murder animals for selfish reasons and make them entertain us. And the person who made this passage has a big problem cursing ,he should know little kids read this.
    I think he is a “what I said on the ski lift.”If you want to know what that means don’t look it up it means he is what I said on a ski lift which in my class is what we say when we want to curse.

  8. “all we do is murder animals for selfish reasons” Most of those animals murder other animals for food. The human race only came this far through the murder of animals. Not to mention you vegans will get your wish once we are all eating powdered slop, yay technology.

    Let’s face it most vegans are just insane people drunk off of a moral superiority complex. Eat or be eaten, take your pick.

  9. Ok they don’t save lives if one person becomes vegan or vegetarian it won’t stop someone from killing a cow they won’t say/think (OH MY GOD YOUR VEGAN IM SORRY WON’T KILL THIS COW) they will kill it anyways it doesn’t save lives fuck vegans learn to eat real meat not your cardboard and soy
