What’s so bad about cruelty?

The desire of women to control the men in their lives never ceases to amaze:

A new phenomenon in New Zealand is taking the idea of you are what you eat to the extreme. Vegansexuals are people who do not eat any meat or animal products, and who choose not to be sexually intimate with non-vegan partners whose bodies, they say, are made up of dead animals.

The co-director of the New Zealand Centre for Human and Animal Studies at Canterbury University, Annie Potts, said she coined the term after doing research on the lives of “cruelty-free consumers”….

Many female respondents described being attracted to people who ate meat, but said they did not want to have sex with meat-eaters because their bodies were made up of animal carcasses.

Do women really have so few self-confidence problems that they want to set up a situation where they’re bound to find themselves getting dumped for a hamburger? Considering that their great-grandmothers believed that the way to a man’s heart was through his stomach, this strategy seems likely to guarantee women a lot of lonely evenings home with the carrots.

On the other hand, it would certainly be useful to know ahead of time which women are ultra-controlling lunatics and therefore not candidates for a long-term relationship. This just makes it easy for the cruelty-free-free. Eat salad for a few weeks, bang her until you’re bored, then take her to dinner at a top-flight steakhouse and break up with her over a nice filet mignon.

Her: “You’re ordering meat? You know how I feel about that!

Him: “I certainly do, so you should be able to infer that your services are no longer required. Would you like those Brussels sprouts to go?”

You’ll probably want to bring something to read after she storms out in martyred fury.

I can’t help but note that the picture in the linked article is a timely one which appears to support the recent news that homo sapiens did, in fact, interbreed with Neanderthals.
