      So yeah, I was watching some Chinese-dating show, & the subject of "eating dog meat" somehow came up. & a guy/girl said to me (on the debate of eating dogs, cows, pork & etc). Girl seems to believe meat eaters are disgusting since she's vegetarian & I'm not. So a question to all vegetarians like her, are those who eat meat "disgusting" to you?

      You are super disgusting to me.

      (You are not if you'r vegetarian)

      You are super disgusting to me.

      I think a lot of people consider eating styles/choices that are different to their own as disgusting.

      Yep, but reversely, all-eaters (people who eat everything) don't think vegetarians are "eww" or no do they judge them for their choice of eating.
      Why should vegetarians "condemn" all-eaters or "meat-eaters"?

      Actually I see plenty of meat eaters look down upon vegetarians. Many of them think vegetarians are pretentious.

      I couldn't careless as to who eats what.
      Any body looks down their nose at me is likely to be wearing my dinner :)

      Of course she will say that, if she didn't then she is sticking to greens for the wrong reason. It is kind of wrong to eat meat, to raise something only to slaughter it. But that's mother nature.

      But vegetarians are also cultivating and domesticating veggies & plants to nourish themselves, no? Same logic could be applied to them (vegetarians). & really, Grungiekins, I never knew that...

      There's other "right" reasons to go vegetarian.

      Some people are allergic and can't digest meats, there's also people who go vegetarian for health reasons, not because they think meat is disgusting.

      Oh really? thanks for your information.
      I'd be interested or curious to know what else could make a person go from eating everything to veggies only?
