Dear Foster Kamer of Gawker:
If you actually read Eating Animals, which you clearly didn’t, or you just hate him SO MUCH that it clouds everything, you would know it’s not preachy. It’s extremely well researched, smart, and thoughtful. I mean, we just want you to THINK about this stuff, AT THE VERY LEAST. Your knee-jerk snarky omnivore response is hardly conducive.
Also, this comment from “carbonadam”:
Any vegetarian who thinks animal life is more sacred than plant life is sorely mistaken. All life is sacred and none from the lowly ameba, to humans, to trees, vegetables, nuts, goats, dogs, cows, whales, roaches and rats is any more important than the other. This “animals are more sacred” than plants argument is nonsense and is rooted in human hubris that is about as arrogant and single minded as it can get. vegetarians can be annoying and self righteous and at the end of the day they still have to place organic matter into their maws that was once alive, as do we all, in order to say alive. I say let the annoying ones who think they have it all figured out grind up rocks into dust and eat that instead of organic plant and animal life.
Is this the aptitude level of the average Gawker commenter ? I mean, COME ON.
