Shut up and eat your steak

Ten(ish) years ago, I drove past a cow and suddenly realized that I couldn't kill her. Thus, I gave up meat. But I have no beef (heh) with the meat-eaters outside of wishing they were less pathologically determined to prove that all vegetarians are morally superior hypocrites. Look, I'm fine with the mocking of PETA, and celebrate the mocking of any political group. What makes me nuts is the ease, or downright glee, with which the meat eater conflates PETA with ALL vegetarians. And then, when the vegetarian pushback happens, the response is so often smug anger. It's really annoying.
