The Game Changers

#1  Postby FRAP38 » Nov 09, 2019 4:21 am

Anyone seen this documentary (available on Netflix)? It's pretty well done and convincing; complete with white lab coats and legit qualifications, ive had a difficult time convincing people its a vegan agenda couched in half truths.

Thoughts on this documentary and/or the surge in vegan evangelicalism.

I saw it. Not sure which 'half-truths' were in it as I haven't looked it up but from things I already knew I haven't really found any. There was some anecdotal stuff I'd find hard to confirm meant anything.

It seemed mostly, though, geared towards the upending hyper masculinity that the meat industry has created surrounding the eating of meat, especially in the US. I thought the advertisements portraying high-calorie, high-cholesterol inducing, cheese-covered burgers and wraps as "real man's" food to be utterly obscene (as well as implying those that don't engorge themselves with BBQ are cissies). We simply don't have ads like that on this side of the Atlantic.

Show vegans this. Have you ever met any bicycle riding, Linux using vegans? Nobody is more self righteous.
