Omnivore Stamp by Nestly Omnivore Stamp by Nestly
Nestly: People as a society and for as long as anyone can remember, have eaten both meat and plants.
We eat both food groups. If you can't stand the idea of eating 'the poor animals', then that's tough, because people eat meat. And you're a person. So deal with it.

While I'm not a big fan of going vegan as a "fad", I understand that everyone has their reasons, and if done right, it can work very well! But come on, there's no need to look down on people who DO eat meat. (Or eat veggies if you're a meat eater!) As long as you're human, you're a damn omnivore, so stop giving people crap just because they eat something you don't "believe in".

If you agree that we have molars and canines for a reason, and that people should respect that we are all omnivores, (whether they think they are or not) then feel free to add this stamp to your journal if you are subscribed with this code: :thumb62390826:

While I'll listen to any reasonable opinions, if you want to leave a comment just to insult me, I'll simply laugh at you, trust me.
This stamp really isn't meant to be offending, so I'm sorry if it offends you, but that's too damn bad.

This is my first stamp by the way. XD I'm sorry, I just couldn't find a stamp that said this, so I had to make my own. Enjoy!

EDIT: Because I am getting hundreds of comments that are still misunderstanding where I'm coming from: This stamp is to say that you are part of a race that eats all kinds of food. That's how it is, so getting offended by someone's choice of a meal and giving them grief is just silly. I don't care what you eat, but you ARE an omnivore, whether you choose to go one way or the other. So shut up, eat what you will, and respect the fact that people in general will eat all kinds of things.
Thank you for reading.

I also hate to break it to the "BUT WE'RE KILLING ANIMALS" kinds of vegans and vegetarians, but you kill plants to eat them too. And many plants are also capable of feeling pain. Biology eats biology. It's a part of living. Only biology that doesn't eat biology (mostly) are indeed the plants because they can make their own food. They're autotrophs. But us hetetotrophs need to consume other biology to survive, so we need to end up killing said biology to survive.
And don't bring up all the mistreatment of animals for food that isn't what I'm talking about here. I'm talking about just the whole "killing animals for food" topic. Ya kill plants for food too.

But plants don't have cute, adorable little faces. Lol. People have less sympathy for plants because they simply emote less.

Why do people keep making stamps saying 'whether you like it or not'?


People EAT what they want to EAT.

Probably because what you're eating makes up your lifestyle choice, not your biological categorization. You can be a vegetarian by choice and still biologically an omnivore.

What upsets me is that people seem completely fine with contributing to the suffering of animals in factory farms buy buying meat at the grocery store. If the animals were treated well before being killed, I would not care.

"...and that people should respect that we are all omnivores,"

I take issue with people who suggest that just because we happened to evolve one way, that ought to guide our behaviour in life. We also evolved to be suspicious of strangers, which is the root cause of all kinds of xenophobia, our fear of that we cannot understand. Does that justify it?

Not really, no. Likewise, we may have evolved as omnivores, but we don't need to be. I'm not even speaking as a vegetarian- I enjoy the occasional meat- but we can easily survive healthily on a non-carnivorous diet. The logic itself is flawed.

Not really. 'Meant to' implies some purpose that nature just doesn't have. We are biologically omnivores, that is indisputable. But that doesn't mean that choosing to eat meat is a better choice. We in first world nations don't need meat to be healthy and by all statistics vegetarians are healthier than non-vegetarian because most first world diets contain too much high fat high cholesterol meats (esp red meat) and in too large a portion. In any case there is no reason to eat meat in first world countries. We mostly do it because we like it, not because it's better for us.

I am a full on meat-maniac (as I prefer as there is no "meatiarian" or "meatan" like that) but in the end I still eat vegetation. I never particularly adored the taste of vegetation, but I eat it anyway, because sometimes it's cool ^^

I am no carnivore nor a herbivore.


And frick, I ain't no insectivore.


I want to murder the grammar in this comment

Humans as a species are, but each person has a choice to eat what they want. (vegetarians, carnivores, hell, even cannibals!)
whether or not this has an effect on your health is the issue.

I've heard that eating meat can significantly shorten your life span so if that is true I totally understand why people wouldn't eat meat. It's just like not eating a bunch of sugar. As humans we wouldn't be where we are today without eating meat. I don't know where I'm going with this lol. People can do what they want. If it doesn't lower my quality of life I don't care.

Yep, humans are omnivores.  We can digest plant and animal matter, not to mention fungi!

I'm strictly vegan.  I know humans evolved eating meat and we likely wouldn't be where we are if we didn't.  That being said, humans /are/ omnivores and we can survive (and thrive) off wildly different diets.  The key is variety, while still making sure you get everything nutritionally.

(I am vegan for moral and environmental reasons, btw)

I don't think mentioning my vegan status is too off-topic for a discussion about eating meat.
My intentions were to give a perspective from the "other side" while still agreeing with the OP.

sorry 4 the weird comment insert here but just so you both know-- meat itself isn't the thing we need!! what we need is PROTEIN, which can be found in things like eggs, beans, nuts, and tofu! (<which is why you see vegans eating so much of it)

just to let u know ✌️

People say that our long intestines are an excuse as to why we should not eat meat.

But we have canines at the same time. They may not be as sharp as a cat's fangs, but they are sharp enough to do decent damage.

Also, there are a lot of people who need meat, and there are people who have even said that having a vegan diet for them makes them feel even worse.
Just because I eat meat/vegetables does not mean I don't care for animals getting slaughtered in slaughterhouses, and I've been seeing people say stuff like that.

THANK YOU.
Man, the vegans that do this shit me to tears... Humans as a species are omnivores based on our teeth structure and digestive structure which are both made to consume both meat and plant matter- this a simple fact that literally anyone with the slightest knowledge of basic biology can agree on. We just so happen to be able to consume such a wide variety of food and can artificially create supplements that we are able to cut out otherwise important parts of our natural diet. What would these preachy vegans do if we were obligate carnivorous? Oh yeah- end up like the 'vegan' cats that come into the vet clinic dying a slow painful death because they were denied important proteins and hormones needed for their survival. On the other end if we were herbivores we would have to spend a ridiculous amount of our day eating huge quantities of food and our diet would also be extremely limited as not even herbivores can consume all the kinds of fruits and vegetables we can (especially not the fruits). Be thankful we're fuckin' omnivores if you want to pick-and-choose your diet!

My personal philosophy is that I don't eat anything that I wouldn't be prepared to kill myself.

For whatever reason I don't like killing animals except fish. XD
So now I'm a ovo-lacto-pescotarian, meaning I can eat fish, eggs, and non-meat stuff. :)

And of course I'm an omnivore.
