I wonder why there are no vegan bodybuilders or kickboxers….

What? Try http://www.veganbodybuilding.com/ and http://organicathlete.posterous.com/vegan-athlete-james-southwood.

There are many vegan athletes.

ha! cry me a river meat eaters. It’s a short film sponsored by the government! So what, they’re not throwing money at the beef industry (do we have one in the ACT), but the short encourages people to diversify their diet, which is good news for agriculture industries throughout the region.

Wait, isn’t limiting what you can eat the exact opposite of “diversifying” your diet?

After reading the title to this thread, I thought it was an alternative to the van of tasty meaty goodness, but it appears you mean “trailer” as in movie preview, not “trailer” as in vehicle towed behind a car.

On the subject of vegans – you would have to be nuts.

On the subject of this film – while an animated telling of a girl struggling with the slaughter of animals for food was wrapped up by the “Apu’s garden in the shade” episode of the Simpson’s, it can only be a good thing that art (which isn’t dumped by the roadside) is produced in Canberra.

I can’t wait for the “Billie the Butcher” sequel where Billie is subjected to taunts of mass murderer, and takes the Vegans to court on a charge of hate speech.

I know one Vegan who contracted Celiac disease. Her doctor recommended an increased intake of protein to help her on the road to recovery. She refused to diversify her diet, and continues to recuperate very slowly. Eating healthy ?

Oh, and offensive gas as a vegan! Do you think meat eaters smell like flowers?

I look forward to watching Rita the Meat Eater sometime in the near future.

I think you can get that in one of the stores in Mitchell or Fyshwick…

And by all accounts being vegan makes one’s gas from the alimentary canal more offensive in fetor. So there!

schmeah 11:44 am 12 Jan 11

ha nice one Noisy. It’s obvious you’re trolling for responses.

Since being vegetarian I’ve never felt so good. Maybe you should try it, you might lose that bitter, unhinged edge you’re clearly dragging around with you.

A Noisy Nosie Annoys has it right!!

Why are we paying for this?

Was this one of the Greens’ costly promises?

So ACT taxpayers are paying for this promotion of the deviant vegan/vegetarian lifestyle. How does this correlate with attempts to promote good health? This film is especially evil as it is directed towards children and is an attempt to brainwash them and recruit young people into a dangerous and unhealthy alternate lifestyle.

+1

An irrational failure to deal with the source of foodstuffs that we as a species have relied on for our entire history is not something that should be encouraged by a government. If there was any scientifically backed-up credence to the notion that being vegan is healthier than a normal diet, sure, the guvnmnt should step in, but there’s no place for guvmnt to support the occult and similar wacky ideas.

Then again… the guvmnt continues to support organisations that rely on word of mouth tales from two thousand years ago about weird and wacky happenings, so the precedent does exist!

That’s great! I love it – can’t wait to see it 🙂

What, like the meat and dairy industry already get govts to do? If it works for them …..
