is vegan love? – (en)

Let me start this bitch off with a bang and keep it real, VEGAN is lame as fuck!
When Linnaeus developed his system of classification, there were only two kingdoms: Plants and Animals. Today the system includes six: Plants, Animals, Protists, Fungi, Archaebacteria, Eubacteria. ALL THOSE ARE LIVING CREATURES, and life is life –whether in grape, or pig or man. There is no difference there between them. The idea of difference is a human conception for man’s own advantage, including vegans.
The witty vegan goes: “I’d rather die than live by the death of others.” ~Edward Sanchez.
This sick sadistic nut that worship the calf like a religious zombie, and is a Taliban for plants, should know that in the strict scientific sense we all feed on death -even vegetarians. Really, every kind of animal, herbivores as well, eat primal raw. The difference is that herbivores eat living plants to farm their little critters called bacteria –other living creatures, billions of them. At least that is how I have come to understand it: All living things on earth need to eat other living things in order to survive, WITH THE EXCEPTION OF THE PLANTS. These graceful creatures feed primary on nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium. Minerals…
So, allow me here to conclude that plants are the more peaceful beings inhabiting planet Earth. And vegans, to satisfy their strange appetite, concentrate in the killing of these defenseless creatures, the plants. Veganism is about nonviolence, they will tell you, it’s about not engaging in harm to other beings. So plants for vegans ain’t beings… Brought to this point, and because they won’t starve, even vegans have to eat “something”, they will trace an appropriate fine line… “sentient beings” So funny, life is life, but non-sentient beings are fine for vegan’s maw… But still, how they know plants aren’t sentient beings?
Scientifics are trying to debunk the myth that plants are low-life. If you define intelligence as the capacity to solve problems, plants have a lot to teach us. Not only are they smart in how they grow, adapt and thrive, they do it without neuroses. Neuroses! Intelligence isn’t only about having a shitty brain!
Plants have never been given their due in the order of things; they’ve usually been dismissed as mere vegetables. Sounds familiar? But plants communicate via chemical substances. They have a specific and fairly extensive vocabulary to convey alarms, health and a host of other things. We just have sound waves broken down into various languages, I don’t see how we could bridge the gap.
Plants are alive and try to remain that way! The bottom line is that plants deserve consideration; we must figure out what that means. But for a vegan a broccoli scream might be pleasure, not pain!
To eat, or not to eat, that is the question:
Whether ’tis Nobler in the mind to suffer
The Slings and Arrows of outrageous Famine,
Or to take a Chicken Thigh against a Sea of troubles,
And by eating it end them: to burp, to sleep
No more; and by a sleep, to say we end
The Belly-ache, and the thousand Natural shocks
That Slimness is heir to? ‘Tis a consummation
Devoutly to be wished. Gorging to sleep.
Is vegan love? – By Dugutigui (and a starving Shakespeare…)

About Dugutigui

In the “Diula” language in Mali, the term « dugutigui » (chief of the village), literally translated, means: «owner of the village»; «dugu» means village and «tigui», owner. Probably the term is the result of the contraction of «dugu kuntigui» (literally: chief of the village).

  1. I have been a vegetarian/borderline vegan for 36 years. I just can’t eat living creatures. I never heard my vegetables or fruits scream, though … maybe I should get a hearing aid?

  2. Bashar A. says:

    Some very good points… I agree with all of it to be honest! I try to cut back on my meat intake just because I think as humans in the last couple of decades we have really upped our meat consumption and its not necessary!

    • Dugutigui says:

      Being vegetarian -or not- is a personal decision as correct as any other personal decision. What is criticized in the post is the self-righteous presentation that many of them made as being in possession of the truth, and the fact they want to impose it as the “right-thing-to-do”. Being vegetarian is no more than just a type of diet, like not eating salt, not a pretended philosophy of life, or a school of thought!

      • You are right, self-righteousness is a negative attitude. I hardly ever discuss my being vegetarian, nor do I want to convince others not to eat meat. Diets should be personal things, like religion. I was lucky, though … my better half stopped eating meat when we first met. I did not ask him to.

      • Dugutigui says:

        That is the bottom line in the post.
        In fact every day I eat less meat, almost nothing, and I’ve always eaten large amounts of vegetables. Some kind of diet. It’s healthy. But is not a theme to orchestrate a political campaign … and less to base it on facts scientifically contestable. When I go to a restaurant and order just a salad that doesn’t catch anyone’s eye … Now if I devote myself to lecture the companions, I’m not eating live animals and this kind of stuff … well, that’s different, and I think it’s an impressive lack of respect for others.
        Thanks for the comment!

    Oye, me pasa una cosa muy curiosa, te he puesto un comentario a la versión en español de este artículo y cuando le doy a enviar no entra. Ahora estoy probando aquí a ver si esto se queda o qué.

  4. Interesting article dear D., but here I think we can open a nice debate… 😆
    You made me smile because I know that you are not a vegan…. 😆
    Well, to tell you the truth I am working on becoming one. And to be even more explicit, it is because I think some foods are more healthy than others. From my point of view if one would eat healthy organic food his body would get beautifully detoxified and would heal and regenerate. A good example are many Christian Saints that did not eat much and never ate meat or non-vegan food. And let me explain why I think that you make a little confusion in your post.
    Do you know what was the true food of Saints? Fruits (not the branches or leafes of the tree, but the fruits), vegetables( tomatoes, not the plant, the fruit), seeds (wheat, rice, etc), nuts, bread(made out of flour resulted from wheat grains or other cereals), oil (made out of sun flower seeds or from olives), wine (made out of grapes), honey – never sugar (and you know that the sugar is extremely toxic and also, in the process of being whitened it is treated with animal bone char.. yes, you read right, bone char….).
    So those people were not eating any living creature (be sure that they ate no fish), nor germinating seeds, nor the plants, only the fruits. To be vegan does not mean to kill the plant, but to eat the FRUIT. 😉

      My Dear Memyselfandela…

      Fruits, tomatoes, wheat, rice, nuts, oil made out of sun flower seeds or from olives, wine, honey, etc are all parts of a living creature, or they were alive until you separate them from the main system. Even if you would eat only bacteria you still will be eating living creatures. It is the same like eggs from a chicken, or a calf from a cow. Or to eat only the chicken thighs, leaving the chicken alive, but lame 🙂 🙂

      In any case this is not the point of the article. The point is that being vegetarian -or not- is a personal decision as correct as any other personal decision. What is criticized in the post is the self-righteous presentation that many of vegans made as being in possession of the truth, and the fact they want to impose it to the rest as the “right-thing-to-do”.

      Being vegetarian is no more than just a type of diet, like not eating salt or lactose, probably a healthy one, but not a pretended philosophy of life, or a school of thought.

      In other words, if we go to a restaurant and ask for a salad only, that won’t catch anyone’s eye … Now if we devote ourselves to lecture the companions: “I’m not eating live animals” and this kind of stuff … well, that’s different, then we’re exaggerating, missing strict reality, invading the freedom of others, and I think it’s an impressive lack of respect for other choices…

      Want to eat vegetables only? Great, but don’t lecture anybody with homespun pseudo-philosophy… and bon appétit!!!

      • It’s not a lecture, D., it was my point of view. Homespun pseudo-phylosophy? Excuse me for thinking different than you. As long as comments were allowed there’s also a chance that someone contradicts you sometimes…
        Just like you consider eating a tomato to be similar to a crime, I consider that this is not true. You definitely cannot compare a tomato to an egg, and anyway true vegans don’t eat eggs…
        Peaking a tomato from a tomato plant does not kill the plant. In fact anyone growing tomatoes knows that a ripe tomato actually comes even off the plant without efforts…
        Of course all people are free to eat whatever they want. That was not the point of the discussion. It was only to debate whether this atitude of “refusing to kill” has a real ground or not. Many of those that intend to eat vegetarian food don’t really know what they eat. Lack of education or of experience? Maybe. But you know what, sometimes the intention is all that matters.
        The fact that you do not believe in God or religion does not give you a reason to laugh at others that do have some religious reasons to fast or refuse to kill or to be vegans… Eating has a great deal to do with someone’s ego…
        I personally have a great respect for all those who live humbly, eat wisely and have tolerance for all, regardless of their eating prefferences.
        Bon appétit a toi aussi, cher ami. Et merci.

        I respect a vegan that is vegan because he/she doesn’t like meat or fish or eggs or whatever. But when someone says is a vegan because he/she doesn’t kill, they are attacking the ones that eat anything. So if they have the nerve to insult the rest of us, myself included -after 22 years in Africa I can eat any bloody shit and I don’t give a damm-, I could break my pectus laughing on them. And I will!!!
        It’s not me who’s making noise with this kind of diet in first instance. The vegans are. When they say they don’t kill, they infer the rest of us are primitive criminals… that kill. They infer they are better, superior. Nope, no fucking way!!!
        If someone is following a diet, whatever the diet, fine for him / her, but please give the others a break!! For god’s sake it’s just a fucking diet, not the gospel!!
        If you don’t get the point, I’m sorry but I give up!!

      • OK, OK, I understand you, no need to give up… 😆 😀 😉
