Dave: "Uh, nope. Just eating a balanced diet of steak and vegetables."
Moonchild: "Civilised societies don't NEED to eat meat."
Dave: "Civilised societies don't NEED to be condescending either. Ghandi was a vegan, and he tried to change the world by being a humble example, not a smug, whiny twat. Besides, I eat all natural food, you eat vegetables and a bunch of pills. We're not meant to sustain ourselves with pills from a bottle."
Dave: "You're right. Prepare to die and be eaten."
Hypocritical vegan #2: Yeah stupid carnists don't know anything.
Given that meat eating it is a choice and not an actual necessity in civilised societies, carnism is a philosophy that seeks to defend carnists in their abject subjugation and oppression of non-human animals by justifying their decision and making animals appear as mere objects.
Mary: Please don't be such a carnist.
John: But I like BACON. What's a carnist anyway?
Mary: Someone who thinks that animals are meant to be eaten and feels no remorse for it.
John: But animals have to be eaten.
Mary: My point exactly.
