"Veganism is a cult", "You can only get your protein from meat"... Brut Nature asked this animal rights activist to respond to stereotypes about veganism. Here is what she had to say.

    Why do vegans want to pick on plants and kill them just to eat ?! Why should the world kill vastly more plants to save animals is that not Racist ?! picking on one for the benefit of another.

    I'd like to point out that aside from "veganism is a cult" none of these are stereotypes about veganism, they're just ignorant comments. I guess the only way vegans can be heard is through a video disguised as an informative interview. "I thought protein only comes from meat" Really, who thinks that? That's absurd, what we actually get only from meat are certain vitamins not readily available in plants.

    on est omnivores, on a besoin de viande, point barre. le système digestif est complètement déréglé quand on retire les protéines animales, ce qu'ils disent pas, c'est qu'ils passent la journée avec des crampes d'estomac, la chiasse, et que leur peau est dégueulasse parce qui'ls ont stoppé la viande. il y a plusieurs personnes qui ont fait l'expérience après des années de véganisme , ils ont réintroduit la viande dans leur alimentation et comme par magie, tous ces maux se sont envolés. tapez juste sur google "why I stopped veganism" vous verrez...

    The industrial revolution changed how we became more gatherers than hunters, it is a matter of convenience not dietary supplements based on ideology that we no longer eat meat...if we had to go back to hunters and gatherers, we would not survive with just being gatherers., not enough energy source for the human body. Today we don't hunt so the body doesn't really require meat to that degree, but to say we weren't meant to eat it is ridiculous at best. Doesn't the bible even talk about eating animals as a food source., you mean God was wrong?

    Nobody thinks you only get protein from meat. Meat is considered more "complete" due to it having all the amino acids we need.

    Nourishment aside, one question I have for vegans is: What will happen to all of the animals which have been bred by humans to serve a purpose on this planet? Do they just disappear into oblivion to make more space for self-centered humans? Cows, pigs, sheep, horses, chickens, turkeys, goats, dogs, cats, etc would not exist as they do today in their multitude of forms were it nor for human development. They can be and are raised humanely, it is the commercial feedlot farms you should be waving your propaganda at. To take a life is of the utmost seriousness, even for sustenance, this is not something conscious omnivores take lightly. Our digestive system is nearly identical to a dog's, an omnivore, and until a human is born with the multi-chamberd fermentation based digestive system of a ruminant humans will continue to eat meat and should as we are one of the few apex predators left on the planet. We have a lot to own up to on this planet but ignoring and outright shaming our digestive heritage is not one of them, I have no regrets and feel no shame eating meat. I raise my own animals, treat them well, and take it very seriously when I do take a life to sustain my own and those of my family and friends. I also grow and eat a lot of vegetables, it's called a balanced diet. I already have enough to feel bad about being a white, heterosexual, American, male. I'll be damned if I am going to feel bad about what I eat. But, hey, I'll more than likely be dead in a few decades and you all can go to Mars or whatever and eat your soylent green. Enjoy your choices.

    Does nobody here understand how the food chain works??? The processing (digestion) of flesh is an essential part of the cycle. In lamens terms The lion gets the necessary nutrients it requires (including those derives by plants) by eating the antelope that eats the plants. The antelope gets the nutrients it needs from the plants (including those derived from animals) that consume nutrients from the soil where it is deposited by lions (and a myriad of other carnivorous animals such as insects, arachnids, birds, reptiles etc,etc. As well as fungi and bacteria.

    Speaking of large animals such as elephants. they must eat constantly, day and night, to sustain themselves. They also will treck 100's of kms to a specific place where they eat the soil, due to their diet lacking in specific minerals. Many herbivores also engage in osteophasia, to intake calcium. Did you know scrub hares eat their own feces in an effort to extract every possible molecule of nutrients it can from its diet?

    Be vegan if it's what pleases you, but don't be so ignorant to thinking nothing had to die to feed you. Animals and plants alike.

    Even plants require the death of other living things in order to exist.

    So many vegans just virtue signal rather than embody the idea that a well-planned vegan diet can lead to good health. Lots of vegans (typically those that virtue signal) just look frail and pissed. The few vegans that actually look amazingly healthy has inspired me way more to substitute more veggies into my diet than those bashing people who consume meat
