Vegansexuals say NO to sex with meat eaters

Introducing the Vegansexuals, vegetarians who refuse to have sex with anyone who eats meat. And their numbers are rising. Now that's disturbing. From Independent:
The centre's co-director, Annie Potts, told the Christchurch newspaper The Press yesterday that she was startled to discover that quite a number of vegans, mainly women, routinely avoided sex with meat-eaters. They explained that they considered the bodies of carnivores to be made up of animal carcasses.

"I have not come across it before," said Dr Potts, who coined the term vegansexual to describe this previously unknown social group. A pescetarian from Wellington told researchers that her boyfriend was a vegetarian, and she could not imagine living with a meat-eater. "It would disgust me to see my boy tucking into a chicken," she said. Another woman, also a vegan, declared: "I believe we are what we consume, so I really struggle with bodily fluids, especially sexually."

One vegan from Christchurch did confess that she sometimes found carnivores sexually attractive, but she said: "I would not want to be intimate with somebody whose body is literally made up from the bodies of others who have died for their sustenance. I wouldn't want to get close to them in a physical sense if their body was derived from meat. For me, this constitutes my very personal form of ethical sexuality."

Jesus this give all us good vegitarians a bad name. The Washington Post is saying that if we follow the vegansexualist logic (you are what you eat) then those who don't eat meat are "bloodless, heartless and unappealing to children." Thanks!
