Oh, to have a license to shoot hippies on sight...

Via Scene regular Freddie, I happened across this gem by someone whom I assume is an advocate of vegetarianism and/or veganism. Let me state at the outset that while I have no problem with people eating whatever the hell they want as a matter of religion, health, or simple personal preference, but that I find the ideology that underpins vegetarianism and especially veganism quite repugnant. And also, that we should be allowed to hunt hippies for sport.

So, here’s the quote:

Why doesn’t a horny person have as strong a claim to raping an animal as a hungry one does to confining, killing and eating it? It’s easy to dismiss that question but hard to respond to it.

This is quite the facepalm moment. The reason we have a problem with a man raping an animal (and conversely no problem with him eating it) is not because it’s demeaning to the animal, it’s because it’s demeaning to the man. Thanks for undermining your own premise, dude.

Someone get me my rifle. The one with the scope, I think this one’s gonna be a runner.
