Ok. The title should have been non - vegetarianism (say, is that even a noun?). Are you a non - vegetarian? I bet you meet a lot of people who look down their nose upon you because of that. They are just plain ignorant hypocrites. They may give you all that moral crap about harming a living thing and stuff. Here is what you can say to them :
# Sea food-eaters are mainly responsible for the employment of fishermen. Meat-eaters are responsible for employment of butchers. What if everyone goes vegetarian? Will you take the responsibility of providing employment to them?
# Most fishermen live along the coast. So they can't cultivate other crops on the saline land. Naturally, they will have to move. This is going to increase the strain on the land resources of the nation. Will you take the responsibility of providing them with proper, hygienic homes?
# It is because people who eat non - vegetarian, that it is possible to supply grains to the remaining people of India. If they all go vegetarian, who is going to provide all the extra grains? Will you take the responsibility of providing good food to over a billion people?
# This one's the best. They usually give the shit about harming animals. Here is what you can reply, " When animals are being caught, at least they can move to defend themselves. They can run away and escape. They at least have a chance. YOU all are cowards. Plants or crops can't even move from their places when you cut\harvest them. You don't even give them a chance to defend themselves. You just hack them, you cowards."
* That is why people say before you criticize others, look at what you are doing. The same thing applies to plastic also. But I'll talk about plastics some other time.
