Going veggie puts you at risk of developing vitamin b12 deficiency.

if he was going vegan, yes. Vitamin b12 is also in fish, milk, and eggs.

Just eat marmite every now and then.

I think it's worthwhile to stop eating meat and stop contributing to the suffering of animals (and people). But it's MORE important to not be a giant dick your whole life. Who is getting better karma? A vegetarian who spends all of their time hatefully bitching about meat-eaters, or a jolly old guy who befriends everybody and helps people with their problems and eats meat, too?

Going vegetarian is a noble endeavor, though. Especially considering how fucked up the meat-producing process is these days. It's not like there are happy animals in a field and then a noble hunter goes and shoots them any more. The animals are treated with very little dignity. And the people who work in slaughterhouses, jeez, that/'s gotta fuck you up bad. I think it develops a certain insensitivity to basic animal suffering that we would otherwise relate to on a natural level.

And yeah, you can become a vegetarian because you can't face death (but to be honest, you don't actually have to face death at all to eat meat because the product is so removed from the original animal that you don't even have to think about it. Like, there are probably people who don't even know where certain meat-foods come from)

In summary,
real men hunt and kill their meat
cowards eat at mcdonalds and then big themselves up for it
real men who are deeply attuned to their natural responses will probably want to stop killing animals, too.

Eating fish is not vegetarian. If you include that with a vegetarian diet, then your pescetarian. B12 is mainly found in meat, milk and eggs are not enough.
