    I am so ******* sick,

    physically ill at people making stupid excuses not to give up meat. Just tell me you want to eat meat and don't want to stop. You have the freedom to do that and I don't have the right to take that away from you and I won't try. Just tell me the truth, tell me you don't care...

    Not trying to attack people,

    but I kinda find it hypocritical how people love some animals so much, but don't think twice about the animal that were murdered for their tastebuds. I know murder is a strong word, but it's true. I think eating meat is one of the most selfish things a human being could do. I...

    I'd call myself a Vegetarian/Vegan.

    Honestly, this is one of the few things about my life that I truly cherish and love. I'll honestly never eat another animal again, and not just because it's super messed up what we as humans are capable of putting them through is not only obscene and disgusting, but I as a Vegan...

    Being vegetarian is being kind to animals (the

    suffering animals go through to produce meat is myriad and sickening), it saves on vital resources and is healthy! The logical choice!

    You know what annoys me?

    When someone finds out I'm vegetarian and they automatically assume I'm one of those people that forces their opinions on everyone. I don't tell anyone to stop eating meat. I am aware it is their choice and me being vegetarian is my own choice.

    Yup! I'm a vegetarian.

    :) And pls STOP confusing us with Vegans. We have milk and many other products made from it. And I have no vendetta against people who are Non-Vegetarians or Vegans. To each, his own. :)

    What started off as simple a joke to see just

    how long that I would last actually turned out to be 5 years of commitment and counting thanks to you Alyssa. Although we may've lost touch some time ago, this I promise you that I'll never lose this bet for as long as I live.

    I will never see the sun rise,

    I will never see it set, I will never feel a kind touch, I will never be a pet. I will never feel love, for I will not be loved, As I’m led to my murder, being prodded, poked and shoved. As they cut my tender skin, I wondered who would care, If anybody out there, would...

    I was a vegetarian for 2

    I Am a Vegetarian And I absolutely love it.

    I'm not a preachy vegetarian; in fact, a lot of people I know don't even know or remember that I am half the time. It's not for ethical or health reasons (though it truly is healthy), but it's really just a preference. Of course I know a-holes that shove something in my face...

    This summer I am celebrating my 20th

    I know when you think of vegetarians,

    you might roll your eyes when they reach for the tofu instead of the chicken, or prefer broccoli over steak. But if you don't, I admire that, because you make your life choices on what you eat, don't think it should be forced on others, and you don't criticize my choices; just...
