Vegan-sexuals

Here's a little something from The Press in New Zealand:

No sex, please, you're a carnivore.

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.

.

Unlike most other world classics, "The Divine Comedy" is a
self-help book. People read Shakespeare with no expectation that they
will become Shakespeare. But many read Dante expecting to mimic his
results and transform themselves from seekers, lost in their own
questions, into poets, certain and transcendent.
