    I'm not saying anything against vegans

    if vegetarians, but they really should try the chicken nugget. It's fake chicken anyway.

    I hate meateaters who are hypocrites

    and say that they "love" animals. By "loving" animals, they surely mean strictly cats and dogs or animals they don't eat. Just because chickens, cows and sheep aren't as cute and fluffy as domestic pets, they are sentient and capable of feeling pain, just like cats and...

    New Vegan

    Hello :) I have only been vegan for 2 months, but I am loving it. The only thing that has been hard is the learning curve. I'm sure I haven't been 100% vegan because I'm still learning about everything that is derived from animals. I started a vegan diet to eat healthier, but...

    I have been a vegan for a while.

    I personally only know 2 vegans and we don't even see each other often. I really would love to be friends with more vegans who share the same views as me. I feel like my friends dislike that I am vegan, either due to jealousy or different views.

    I Am a Chegan (cheatin' Vegan)

    Actually, I'm not a pure vegan because I cheat sometimes.  I find it impossible to be driving around and feeling hungry, and stopping in a small town expecting to find something vegan.  However, there is a Mexican restaurant in town where I can pick up an order of...

    I do this only to lose weight,

    but I will downgrade to vegetarian when I reach my goal because I honestly don't car about not eating milk and cheese and stuff, but meat and animals are off limits.

    with pushy, condescending meat eating relatives? My husbands family (big family) is very terrible when it comes to food. The last time I was at his cousins' all they made was meat, no salad's or sides or anything. When I got there they kept going "all we made was meat you can't...

    Let's Go Natural...

    I have been doing my vegan thing for awhile now, the way I feel is so amazing not having the pollution of mistreated, tormented animal karmic energy in me. I do believe that it does leave an imprint on your soul, and the fact that it is bad for the earth, and that all of us...

    I hate thanks giving.

    It's the one holiday that encourages the slaughtering of animals, more specifically chickens. I hope your happy with what should be considered cannibalism

    Been a vegan for almost 3 years now and loving it. :P It all started when I came across videos of animal testing thanks to my friend, which eventually led me to factory farming videos. It was painful and horrendous to see, but I'm glad I did see what I did because it has...

    I've been married for 12 years to a carnivore.  I became vegan after we had been married 5 years but had never eaten much meat.  I would make meat dishes and eat all the veggies and let my husband have the meat.  When I became vegan he was very supportive but over...

    It has been a month

    since I started eating 100% vegan(before I was simply a vegetarian) and it has really started to pay off! I just feel great and I can look myself in the mirror and feel good for once! Best choice I've ever made.

    And what sucks is my family doesn't allow me to!

    ! My parents exercise this great authority over me and I just have to eat fish and eggs and milk when they're with me!!! They don't see how much this means to me, they won't even look into it. I asked them to read a letter that I wrote to them for my birthday. They didn't.

    Vegan Since 2005... Vegetarian Since 1992

    I went vegetarian as a teenager for health reasons and because it fitted with the spiritual ideas I was exploring. It wasn't really much to do with animals or the ethical concerns until much later. In fact it was only in 2004-5 that I really started to think about whether or not...
