    Thumbs up Vegan

    So me and a couple friends of mine decided to go Vegan (or "super Vegetarian") after seeing what horrible things are done in slaughter houses. It's beyond animal cruelty. But...it is hard to resist that delicious meat sometimes.

    What do you guys think about Vegans?
    Did you already know about what has been going on in these slaughter houses?
    Are any of you Vegetarian?

    Honsly, "Vegan" is not something I would ever do. I do not eat fast food or eat frozen meet (like tyson chicken wings for example). I buy all my meet, vegetables, fruit, and free-ranged eggs locally. Lucky for me I live in Vermont so this is all easily possible.

    I think its really a personal choice, you cant enforce your agenda on some one like a lot of groups do. I personally love grilled chicken and meats. Thats not saying I condone what goes on and what goes into my body, but I make smart choices based on calories, sodium intakes, fats etc. I think becoming a vegan would be a great choice for any one who wants to detox their bodies and try something new.

    I think I love meat and either:

    a). We eat those animals that are bred for consumption.
    or
    b). We slaughter them back to unoverpopulated numbers and all go Vegan.

    Those animals are going to die whether you eat them or not so you might as well enjoy. I don't care though. More steaks for me! Seriously though, I have no problem with how anyone chooses to live their lives as long as it doesn't effect the lives of others in a negative manner.

    I'm a vegetarian but not a vegan because from time to time I eat eggs or cheese that's pretty much the only thing that separates me from vegetarian and vegan. Congrats on being a vegan its tough

    I completely agree with what you said. And you probably worded it better than I would have.

    Be vegan if you like, but it's not gonna stop animals from being slaughtered.
    I guess it could go in the "controversial opinions" thread, but I believe that most animals are meant to be eaten, with the exception of the main pet animals. Hate me or not, that's what I believe.

    One of the most common lunch table arguments at my school... we have a lot of vegans and vegetarians, and I feel like thats great if you want to do it, but they try to force it on everyone else, which gets annoying.

    Anyone that tries to force an opinion on someone else is annoying. One good thing about being big and strong is I don't get a whole lot of people doing that to me IRL lol.

    lol I wish I was big and strong hints the name Smallz. but I completely agree with what you said Krillin. I think that animals are here for us to eat but to much of it is harmful just like everything else. Harming animals just for the fun of it is something that I don't agree with at all but killing an animal to eat I don't see anything wrong with that. I will never force my beliefs on someone else I will just state what I believe and if they show interest I will go into why I believe but if they don't want to hear it I just go on. I don't see why people think they have the right to push their ideas on others.
