Re: Vegetarian Arrogance

Anyone can be arrogant. However, there are those vegetarians and vegans that do walk around with an "attitude", and can be quite obnoxious when speaking to those that aren't. Although I'm vegetarian, and make sure a large proportion of my meals are vegan, I have been on the other end of th...

Re: meat is murder?

Yes, meat is murder because you killed an animal so you can eat it. It is no longer the stone age - we do not have to kill animals for food, or warmth. There are many meat alternatives out there, so obviously better than others. Purses, shoes, clothing, personal care items and household cleaners all...

Re: Transitioning?

I think it's wonderful you're considering going vegan again. My advice is - don't put too much pressure on yourself. I know many will disagree with what I'm about to say, but we all have our unique experiences, and I believe it's much more difficult for some, than others. Doing it gradually is a gre...

Re: The reason why there is no such thing as a vegan

Reve Electrique gave an excellent answer to your post. While it may be true that the use of some products containing animal byproducts are unavoidable (if in fact things like bandaids contain them I don't know!), vegans do not eat or wear anything from an animal. Also know there are plenty of beauty...

Re: Vegan And Unnatural Substances?

I'm no medical professional, but in my experience you're right. You've been working out and putting good food into your body, it becomes a shock to introduce "unnatural substances." I always felt quite queasy eating wheat, so I finally stopped a couple of months ago. Now if I eat even the ...

Re: Steps to achieve a vegan world

Start with the basics - teach respect for animals, and change laws that only view animals as property.

Re: vegan ethics question - eggs and dairy

Factory farmed hens and dairy cows suffer horrendously. Hens are kept in cages too small to turn around, or spread their wings. They are hen pecked by their cage mates. They are genetically altered to lay about 1 egg per day. Hens in the UK usually last around 1 year, and are then considered spent a...

Re: Trying to lose weight is so fustrating!!

It's totally frustrating, and discouraging when you see no results. I cut out wheat and junk food for six weeks. Rode my bike every day, and did some weights. Getting rid of wheat did make me feel a little better, but didn't lose an ounce.

Re: Fake fur - your views?

I'm obviously against the wearing of real fur. I don't think it's a big deal to wear fake, but I have heard comments that fake encourages people to feel that fur is okay, so it's best to forget about it altogether. No idea if it's true, but an interesting point.

Re: Rescued Factory Farmed Turkeys feel sun for 1st time

Seeing this videos really brings a tear to my eye. To know the suffering these poor animals endure, and to watch them enjoy freedom for the first time...wonderful feeling.

Re: Boycott PETA

I believe PETA does excellent work in calling attention to the cruelties inflicted on animals. However, if you research the statistics on the number of companion animals killed by the organisation, you would be astounded, and those figures do not come from only one source. As an organisation that ta...
