It shouldn’t be news to anybody that Hyori loves animals, and it shouldn’t be news that she’s also a vegetarian. However, her recent quotes irked me a bit, just because they’re so predictable.
She added, “I just hope people would agree with me that the mankind is not at the top of the food chain. The nature, plants, animals, fish, and humans, we are all connected as one. So why not coexist, love each other, and continue a happy life together?”
Actually, due to our intelligence, humans are apex predators.
We should all coexist, sure, but it’s hard to say as a matter of fact that we are not at the top, so why bring it up?
Lee Hyori was also asked to give a word of advice to vegetarian novices. She commented, “Vegetarianism doesn’t happen all of sudden just because you decide to go vegetarian. It’s more of a time thing, when the time you realize, ‘I should be vegetarian.’ But this time doesn’t just come to you, either. You should be really interested in vegetarianism, gather resources and information, and have numerous conversations with people around you. Then the right time will come.”
Oh, right. Of course, this shit.
Why do so many vegetarians take this passive-aggressive approach to shit, inferring that they’ve found this higher plane of enlightenment, and when us peasants finally come around and realize it, we too will achieve nirvana with them.
It’s so … hipster, which explains why I hate them with a burning passion.
“Oh you poor meat eater, you’ll figure it out eventually, and when you do, we’ll be waiting for you, because we’re patient and peaceful like that.”
