Mhm, so because I express my way of life,
I am also FORCING you too?

No, it's your choice to read it,
To follow any of those links,
Or to embrace them.

So I should word it as though I don't feel strongly about it?

I could word very differen't in a way that it would clearly state that if you eat meat, you're wrong, and stupid for doing so,
And that vegitarian is the way to go.
But, I didn't, I feel that the way it is worded is just right to how I feel, but not pushy in the slightest way in saying that you too, and many others should do so, and are wrong if not.

dude. your first video is a peta video. you're a vegetarian so surely you must be aware of who peta are. peta do not want to have a polite conversation about why vegetarianism is good. they do want to aggressively promote their agenda through dubious tactics and a largely extremist approach. it's not 'forcing' people to become vegetarians in the sense of snatching burgers out of peoples hands. but rhetorically their intention is to make people vegetarian. it's promoting the agenda in a way that you would probably be unconfortable with if they were scientologists or extremist christians. but i guess it's okay if it's a vegetarian organisation.

p.s. your first vid got removed for violating youtube's tos.

Yes, it is.
And am I in any way forcing you to watch that video?
Nope.
If you decied to follow the link, then watch it,
That is all done by you.

And even if I support Peta, and even they have an aggrsive approach,
That doesn't mean I take the same approach that they do.

i mean seriously that is the peta mindset and like meg said they have aggressive views on this. and like someone else said, make your own choice and deal with it. you're never going to turn everyone vegetarian; people have the right to make their own decisions.

Really,
You can talke my sig in any way you like,
And try and say I trying to push you into it.
But, the point is, I'm not.
So, you can try to make any point at all, to show you are right.
But, it's MY sig, and therefore, I am right when I say that I am not trying to push people into it, because, it's is something I DID and that isn't my inttention. Dno Sorry you feel that way.

Personally I couldn't do it, meat is not even my favourite kind of food, but fish! I couldn't live without fish


First, can I just say, fish IS meat...?



yeah but fish meat is softer/different than other meat. I prefer it to the other, that's what I meant.
And I actualy know some veggies that do eat fish, either cause they think they're ugly or that they have had a free life.

Too. I love sushi and sushi without fish is not real sushi! xD
By tha way, vegetarians eating fish are called "pescetarians" (Wikipedia, ya know?).
I am a flexitarian I think - I always try to go veggie, but I often have to eat McDonald's food -__- and my granma always cooks something with meat in it and she's VERY good at cooking... yummy.

I don't get why people call themselves vegetariand when they eat fish. Fish is meat, they are alive, they can feel, they swim, they live their lives. What's the difference?

They might call themselves vegetarians, but they're not.

yeah lol! True!

That is actually what I meant. I think it's very ignorant or i don't know how to put it. You either eat meat or you don't.

When it comes down to it, humans are meant to eat meat. It's in our geneology. That's why when people go vegetarian they have to make up the minerals from meat in other ways, such as iron supplements, or tofu.

But hey, maybe those people just don't like the taste of meat. I hate the taste of many vegetables, most fruits, and things that are too sweet. Everyone's different. But forcing people to eat meat/don't eat meat, such as PETA and similar companies is no different than a preacher trying to force their religion on you.

Why do people have to be in a category because of what they eat or dont eat
