I can’t even describe how much it annoys me when people say that vegetarians shouldn’t eat mock meat like quorn and linda mccartney foods. “If vegetarians don’t like eating meat, why do they eat something that looks and tastes like meat?” BECAUSE NO ONE EVER SAID WE DON’T LIKE THE TASTE OF MEAT!
Vegetarian or not, most people like the taste of meat and if we can get the same taste from something without supporting a cruel industry then why would we not? It’s not as though you cut open a pig and loads of sausages spill out .They are made into that shape which is why you can get beef sausages, pork burgers etc. Does it really matter what shape my food is in? You just carry on chomping on dead animal flesh and i’ll just be over here, not paying people to torture animals.
It’s so heartless and selfish for omivores to criticise a vegetarian/vegan for voluntarily doing a good thing.
