Con

I partially watched the video as asked, but found that it had little impact on my feelings towards meat. I was already well aware of the bitter things that occur in slaughterhouses to put food on our plates; I find it is a necessary evil to maintain a healthy lifestyle with all the nutrients you need to survive.

Vegetarians must take extra precautions to gain every nutrient the human body requires. [1]

The resolution was that Pro would turn me vegetarian. This has not happened; I will continue to eat meat.

Thank you for the quick debate.

I love how Vegans think meat is the only product that comes from animals. Chances are that if you've ever used creams and lotions, medicine, chewed gum, ate pasta, bought pet food or replaced the strings on your guitar or tennis racket, you've consumed an animal.

Um, do you really think that in an anonymous internet setting where both the rules and the culture dictate that you are supposed to oppose your opponent's position is the best opportunity to elicit honest, unbiased responses? This is a strange study...

Taylur, you did great my friend. Thanks for being honest. That's what we were looking for.

No idea what that means. But when I accepted this debate and suddenly realised I had 5 minutes to watch a 7-minute video, do some research and then write a response with cited sources, I panicked. A lot.

Surprised I had a minute to spare after all of that, though.

Nice work guys, good job. Yes, this debate had nothing to do with being or making you become a vegetarian. This short debate was part of a class study of conditioned emotional responses (CER) and Suppressed Emotional Responses (SER). Appreciate your help.

I think this debate was just to try and trip somebody up. It was only a 5 minute debate time.

Your premise is flawed. You can't "make" me do anything. You could feasibly prove that the logic behind me being omnivorous is faulty or that the action is immoral, but "making" me is not within your power. The only way you could "make [me]... become a vegetarian" is by physically preventing me from eating meat. This being said, I believe you lost this debate before it began. Your statement was malformed.

Reasons for voting decision: I agree with Con because although I am aware of the process needed to provide the meat for our plates it does not change my opinion.

Reasons for voting decision: Pro had one argument. We are all aware of those things too. Pro should of at least attempted to show how it may be bad for our health, but didn't even attempt to do so. If I were to eat lean, captured wildly meat, then pro's argument becomes completely invalid
