Would you puke if you saw someone eating a raw cow brain in public?

I'm Milk Jar, a friend of Sv3rige, and I like to go to vegan events and eat raw meat in front of them to show everyone it's safe. A while back I was a vegan and I was so sick I couldn't move without puking my own organs out through my nostrils, I tried everything but I never felt better until I started eating animal organs raw.

When I was younger there was a butcher's shop down the road from my school which sold cow's eyes. I remember buying them and throwing them at people.

@MilkJar. "...I like to go to vegan events and eat raw meat in front of them to show everyone it's safe."

Most vegans are not protesting that eating meat is a personal health risk. Rather, they are attempting to raise consciousness as to what it means to eat a hamburger say and the kind of miserable life the animal had with an execution date on its head from the time it was born. Generally speaking, the main problem is how Humans tend to view other animals in a disposable way and lack respect for their lives which is what allows systems such as modern factory farming/slaughter-houses to exist. That is, eating parts of a cow is very different than eating mashed potatoes and there is an obscurantism at work in order to blur the lines in an attempt to make this distinction non-existent in the minds of the mass public. People in society should be aware of what they are partaking in whether it be in their eating choices, war, social-economic class system, ect. ect.

"A while back I was a vegan and I was so sick I couldn't move without puking my own organs out through my nostrils, I tried everything but I never felt better until I started eating animal organs raw."

Now, to state my position/bias upfront, I have been a Vegan for over 4 years. As I discussed in a different thread, I have personally experienced no problems mentally or physically as a vegan compared to eating meat, milk, eggs, ect. Also, I enjoy physical training regiment as a hobby/interest that is part of my life. In real life, I'm 6'2"-6'3" and typically stay around 225lbs at under 10% BF (and have been over 240lbs with low bf while vegan) which clearly breaks the standard stereotype of someone going frail/brittle/physically weak/lacking energy/sick when they turn vegan or stay vegan for some time. This just serves to say that I am HIGHLY skeptical of the claim that you made stating, "I was so sick that I couldn't move without puking..." and more generally that a person is incapable of being physically healthy/fit by adopting a vegan diet due to my personal experience and the example of other people who have adopted it. As for mental health/fitness/activity, I would again refer to a previous post of mine that stated, "I would just point out that Edward Witten (arguably one of the most intelligent contemporary physicists) is Vegan."

Now, my main objection to the standard societal view of other animals as food is the unwillingness to acknowledge that eating a hamburger (cow) is very different than eating a potato. That is, I don't like that people pretend that there is nothing heavy/sad/unfortunate/potential ethical concern/or even in many cases fanatically celebrated eating other mammals and creatures for which we know we share a great deal in common (e.g. the desire to live, feel pain, pleasure, emotions, ect. (obviously this varies from animal to animal)) and so there is an enormous disconnect between what they are doing and how they are thinking about it. If one viewed it as absolutely necessary to eat meat for ones own health purposes then I think a strong argument can be made for doing ones own fishing/hunting because; A. It forces you to connect on some level with the process that is happening and potentially fosters a greater respect for the exchange that is happening B. The animal lived a much better life up until the end compared to one raised in factory farming C. The quantity of meat you would be eating is almost definitely much lower because of the process that goes into it. Also, aside from hunting/fishing, all I would really like to see from people that continue eating meat is a sincere acknowledgment and consideration about the dynamic at work and makes choices inside of that understanding (e.i. do not delude yourself into thinking that eating a pig (bacon, ham, ect.) is the same thing as eating spaghetti just with a different taste, texture, ect.).

So, just in short, if one continues to eat meat I think it should be inside of the framework similar to how the Native Americans (and other groups) that had a sincere acknowledgement, respect, and appreciation of the process that is occurring which is light-years away from how our modern world views this very important issue.
