Actually, we lost our fur/body hair through evolution in favour for animal pelts to avoid fleas and to have generally better hygene.
Fair enough. The point can easily be made with tattoos or piercings though. Or hair dye. Or any one of the myriad 'unnatural' things that we do as humans.
Generally, I find the reaction to not eating meat odd. It's not that hard a concept to grasp. I don't like meat, therefore I don't eat it. I don't like tomato ketchup either, and I don't eat that. If I were stranded in the wild with nothing else to eat, I'd eat the nearest animal with a bottle of ketchup.
It's a choice thing. We're all priviliged enough to be able to live in a society where we can eat or not eat what we like. Good, isn't it?
