(Uh… not quite sure if this post goes here)
Just wondering. How often do vegetarians who are vegetarians for reasons other than diet (i.e. religion, animal rights, etc.) eat the soy burgers that are advertised to “taste like the real thing”?
If there are any at all, doesn’t that mean that they would be somewhat promoting the consumption of cow-flavored stuff, anyway?
Fake or otherwise, it sort of (I stress ‘sort of’) adds up to the same thing, doesn’t it? I.e. wearing faux fur still sends off the message, “I like to wear animal carcasses. Since I’m not allowed to do that, I might as well get fake ones, and just look like I’m wearing them.”
Say, if there were “soy peopleburgers” that tasted exactly like the real thing, and just happened to taste really, really good, wouldn’t people have problems with that?
