thats a funny pic, but i always thought vegan was not eating any animal products, like milk or honey etc. So i thought i was vegetarian, because i dont eat meat. But i guess i use animal products. i dunno, you guys just confused me.

You are a vegetarian.

I do agree that animals are inhumainely killed but I'm not going to give up meet because of it...Yes, you will be healthier with meets and if you do eat too much you will get fat. Now don't laugh here its a proven fact...Scientists and paleontologists tell us that carnivores are smarter than herbivores because they must hunt for food and naturally develope better instincts...

i have no problem with people who eat just veggies...im not one of those people and i agree that there should be a new way of killing animals but eating meat is a natural way of life so i dont know why people are offended by it

I eat meat. Sure, I feel bad for animals every now and then. But it's part of the life cycle.
I wouldn't be able to live without meat, having lived with it my whole life. I'm not good at making myself do things.

i think vegans can be a bit extreme at some times. its completely your choice on what you do, but if a cow has already died for the meat people eat, then leather is made, or the rest rots. i am vegetarian for my own reasons, but not vegan because its not important to me as far as dairy goes. if that made any sense at all lol. i dont know how to say it exactly.

I'm not a vegan, but I respect those of you who are. Seeing disturbing pictures would probably not phase me, (please don't post them) I've been eating meat too long. I tried once to become a vegan, I tried really hard, but I couldn't do it. I do feel bad when I eat meat, but it's just how life goes for me. When you're poor the way I am, you don't really have a choice what you eat, dear. I do not wear fur coats. I find skinning to be absolutely DISGUSTING. I wish PETA would give a good talking to this one guy at school who skins squirrels and cuts off and keeps their tails as trophies! Sad

Damn, that guy is sick!!!!! Evil or Very Mad Any way, I've been eating meet since I was a kid but I stoped. Don't make your self think about that you can't eat meet. Just stop thinking about it. Like me, it just hit me. Besides, I respect people that eat meet, but don't agree with other forms of cruelty towards animals.

I'm not a vegan, far from it. Although I repect yo guys that are. I have seen images, videos of what happens to animals that are treated babdly. But that doesn't mean all animals are treated like that.

I also know how they are killed and that they are still alive when it happens. But In reality thats how lions hunt! Isn't it? I know we're not wild animals and that we're ment to be civilised but we are (most of the time) top of the food chain. We just found an easy alternative to hunting!

Anyway back to point. Veganism is fine with me, but I'd starve to death on that sort of diet (I hate veg!) Cool

im not a veggie or a vegan but my firend is. i disagree with animals being kept in bad conditions so they can be killed for food. but im a coeliac so i cant eat a lot of things as it is and i dont want to cut anything else out of my diet. people can do what they think is right for them, but it wouldnt be right for me

I'm not going to lie...I love meat

"if there's any vegans here, do me a favor...don't try to 'convert' me. I didn't climb to the top of the food chain, to eat carrots. by the way, have you ever seen a healthy looking vegan? they're always sickly looking..." - Ron White

that pretty much sums up my feelings, (though carrots are my favorite food)

I´m a vegan, but mostly because I just can´t stand meat at all.
I´ve been one for 2 years now and I totally understand people who eat meat and I´d never try to convert them. That´s so disturbing and annoying.
I wouldn´t want that too.

But I really think that people shouldn´t kill animals for their clothes! That´s absolutely disgusting! Brrr! Mad

I believe animals are here for a purpose and that purpose is for other animals to eat them. No one complains when an otter eats a fish, do they? So why should humans be any different? However, I am aware that many people do not think like this and I do not have a problem with that. I do, however, have a problem when they think that no one should be allowed to eat animals. Also, I think it's a bit strange to be vegan because how is miling a cow going to damage it? o__O Anyway...

Well, I respect people that are Vegens, but personally there's no way I could stop eating meat and stuff. Killing animals for food is a way of life, I just don't see how that's cruel.
A lot of animals are born just for that and that's their purpose.
A lot of you have seen pictures of me, and I'm not exactly the biggest of people.. If I stop eating a lot of foods I won't put any weight on at all, so that's another reason..
But yeah, I think it's cruel with the battery farms where they coop the animals up in dark places and they feed them so much that they can't move and stuff. So that's why I only eat free range food.
