I have trouble accepting the idea that Hitler was a vegetarian. He just didn’t seem that pushy.
Apparently others feel the same way. When I started typing “pushy vegetarians” on Google, it auto-filled the rest after “pushy v—.”
Of all the annoying identity movements under the giant rancid rainbow, what is it that causes militant vegetarians to be the most obnoxious? What is it about the Vegetarian Personality that makes me wish someone would cannibalize them? What is it about being lectured by vegans that makes me want to drive straight to Wendy’s and order a Classic Triple?
One quibble: Goad references a stupid study about organic food consumption ostensibly making people ‘less altruistic’, a claim I’d like to think I effectively demolished here, as well with pointing out how different vegetarians and vegans are from other alternative diet enthusiasts, like paleo diet types, raw milk enthusiasts, and organic food lovers. Big difference: those aren’t filled with hate for those who don’t follow their lifestyles, in my experience (I cite various people in my link there).
