I've only known two libertarian vegetarians in my whole life. (Disclaimer: I've probably known less than a dozen vegetarians of any political persuasion... And they all gave it up.)

Say, is this another one of your Ridiculous Fantastical Fantasy Stories? (RFFS, pronounced "reefers").


Yes, there aren't many as deep in the hillbilly woods as you are that don't eat a good possum or coon.

I'm a mostly vegetarian libertarian though.  I'm actually a pescatarian.  I don't eat fish every day though, maybe a couple times a week

Pass, but BM offered me the same thing.  The two of you should shack up and get it out of your system

Hey, if you don't like any meat but fish, or think only fish is good for you, go for it. Nobody else really cares.

Edit: Except people who think fish have feelings too. They think you are a horrible person for eating fish...

Do you think fish are killed humanely?

Read the thread title.  You're such a dick.  Someone should start a threat about that ...

Being a pesco-vegetarian is common because, in Human culture, fish are not considered as sentient as higher animals. And it's true that their brains are smaller and their capacity to learn is drastically reduced.

A bird or mammal can feel complex emotions and form memories and attachments. Almost all fish are incapable of this. Moray eels and elephant-nosed fish are two rare exceptions that seem to possess more advanced cognition.

My culture's veganism is actually super strict. You eat rocks and sticks and you're [not] happy with it. It's close to Buddhist. Some of them won't even harm a bug.

Personally I disagree about bugs. Not that I would eat one, I just don't think bugs are aware enough to warrant any sort of protection... at all.

And even a meat-eater has a line: He generally will not eat his own species.

Every one of these choices draws a line, just in different places. Chide people for drawing the wrong line if you like, but it makes you look foolish if it's just a judgment call and yours simply happens to be in a different place.
  

This moral relativism of yours is exactly what lets government take this freedom, then that freedom, until we have lost them all.

Beef cattle are pretty stupid.
