...are hitting the headlines in New Zealand.
A few choice morsels from the story:
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....
...One vegan respondent from Christchurch said: "I believe we are what we consume, so I really struggle with bodily fluids, especially sexually."
Reminds me a bit of the classic movie Dr. Strangelove, in which General Jack D Ripper was ready to start a nuclear war to "protect the purity of our precious bodily fluids."
Some limited experience with non-carnivorous female-type persons leads me to believe they have the same components as their meat-eating sisters. I found no substantial differences, except perhaps that finding suitable restaurants was a bit more difficult.
Now I'm waiting to hear this one offered up to me as an excuse for, shall we say, "non-fraternization." I've head all the rest, let me tell you.
