    Some of these are completely rational (anti-religion, anti-feminism, etc) - but what harm does trans/vegetarianism cause? Why are trans "meant to be" any specific gender at all? I understand anti-vegan (beyond practical limitations, quite extreme views, can often be literally unhealthy in the same way gluttony is, etc) but not anti-vegetarian

    Because most vegetarians think their morally superior than you because you eat meat.
    but they are "morally" superior! I'm not a veggie but I'm still willing to admit that it's more moral not to eat innocent animals. I don't know how you can really say that veggies/vegans aren't being more moral than us - it's kind of like saying "those stupid non-murderers...they think they're so moral!"

    Many trans have regretted turning trans after a while, it also costs the NHS money that could be spent on more worthwhile things like cancer treatments. If you feel you are in the wrong body its a mental illness.

    "It's not morally repugnant as it's within the boundaries of normal animal behaviour - ie no more harm than is required" - I'd be inclined to agree, except the whole factory farming bit that gets conflated in which is pretty goddamn messed up.

    I am a vegetarian and I don't think I am superior to anyone. I just prefer not to eat animals?

    The thing is humans don't need meat to survive. Even if factory farming was painless and all that other jazz, then it would still be wrong.

    Most priests probably think they're morally sup - oh you said you're anti-religion, that's not a good analogy

    Please qualify all these statements, where are your sources for these claims? (Personal opinion doesn't count)
