Taboo: Are vegans slow-witted?
I’m a little confused now Zooey. Are you saying that this one particular encounter had you wondering if veg’ns were inclined to be more dumb? Or is he one example of many of the same type of “dumb veg’n” characters you’ve encountered and his was just one example? I’d be surprised if you’ve met many “dumb” – by your standards, not chillin’ – ones and still asked us here. I would think you’d have already made up your own mind—not to mention you of course can figure out what people are going to say on a vegan food site. If you are simply basing it on one encounter, would you or do you also go to a “meat eaters” site and ask them if they are less intelligent than vegetarians because you ran across one dumb meat eater? Because we all know there are. (Just as in any class/section of labeling people.) Or one dumb waiter and assume all waiters must be dumb? One dumb actor, pizza maker. hair stylist, etc and assume all actors, pizza makers, hair stylists, etc are dumb? Etc etc.
And I hope I am not coming across as sounding defensive. I am not in the least, but merely curious why you would really pursue this on a veggie site when, judging by your profession and posts you are an intelligent man, and you would already know the answers you would get from us. I think you are interested in the debates? (Which I very much enjoy, btw.) :)
And I’m a genius at nothing… just at being me. ;)
Good morning, Aspire. No, Actually I had never thought about the connection until a couple weeks ago, and then I thought i would ask you guys if you knew of a connection. The connections seems slight, if any I guess. But it does seem like I read a lot about important ‘brain foods’ and nutrients and so it would make perfect sense that not getting some nutrients or foods would have a converse effect, no?
And no, I can’t stand debating—believe it or not. I’m just all OCD over clarity.
I’ve gotten some good answers, but I wanted to make clear that what I was responding to just wasn’t being ‘laid back.’
That would make me very dumb indeed.
oh my god zooey: “fart rutabagas” hahahahaha gasp wheeze, AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH snort…ohh my sides, teheee wair wait wipeing tears of glee…ohhhh my, god but you are funny… oh looky page 5!
glitch computer glitch here is part two:
this topic is great, i think this dude has an angry brother that sells raw pies at a local farmers market…to quote my hubby” the man looks like hes two months dead and hes pissed someone dug him up” the pauses where so long in between the answers to my inquiries that i thought hed been beemed up and probed! say maybe thats why hes angry…;)
Fart rutabagas, he probalby does and I wouldn’t want to be there when he did!!!!!!!
Anyhooo, So this guy was stund, do we seem stund to you? We seem like an elouquent burnch here to me. I think you have to get out and meet more raw foodies. I am totally not being defensive here, becasue I know none of this is aimed at me personally. That would be strange since you don’t know me personally. I know I am not stupid, stund or even a genius at the hoola hoop! I am not even that chill for that matter!
So get out there and meet more raw foodies and HOPEFULLY you don’t end up meeting more stund ones! Gosh, that would be bad!
Hey, I’ve been doing this raw thing for about two weeks, do I not get in on the membership?
Well, sure, I said ‘we’ didn’t I?
Hey look, page 5!!
haha page 5! rock on! Zooey please don’t feel like we aren’t accepting you. :)
Yeah the 5th page of any convo rocks for sure.
You’re very welcome here Zooey. :) And schyeaaah… you’re one of us! Who are any of us to say you’re not anyway?? ;) <— I know, the dreaded smileys. I’m addicted.
