Well... actually it is recommended that you have meat in your diet to live a healthy life... and the more vegetarians there are, the more harm you are causing the planet because you are eating its plant life, and the food of many animals need to survive... so it can also be harmful to the world on a wide-scale perspective

I'm afraid to say that I'm a 99% salad-dodger, so the animals are gonna' have to put up with that I'm afraid.

The only veggies I eat are peas and potatoes, and as for fruit, I'm a 100% banana-guy! Nothing else!

Go, meat-feast pizza!!!

<smiles showing fangs> Yummy. yummy, cow. slurp.

If you are willing to put the time and effort into it, HUMANS (not cats for sure) can get a reasonable protein and amino acid mix using a combination of legumes, nuts and rice. But most people won't or can't put the effort into it.

Instead they call themselves vegita...whatsits and just eat macaroni and cheese... And uh, do you still wear leather? Use glue, shampoo, crayons? Drink milk -- you know, nice cows make milk for baby cows -- not because it's fun -- and since YOU are drinking it.. those liddle cows went somewhere... And if your eggs aren't coming from free-range chickens, they aren't coming from the happy farm either.

If you are going to preach the doctrine of I'm a holy meatless whatever -- do some research and see how many products you are actually willin' to give up because there's animal in there somewhere

That said...

OK, I completely understand not eating meat because it's esthetically revolting to a person. I don't eat meat from the grocery for that reason, it smells like carrion coming out of the package -- and full of hormones, antibiotics, etc. YUCK. I do eat free range meat from animals that I know personally and know the kind and quality of life they live, and were offed in reasonably kind and stress-free ways.

I've thought about it once, after I read this really disturbing article about a Korean girl who ate her boyfriend (the article had pics...) and how she wrote in her diary about how good each of his body parts tasted and stuff. I wasn't able to eat meat for a week after I read that...@_@

but I returned to normal, and as much as a veggie lover as I am, I still wouldn't be able to survive without meat

Eeeeeeeeeeeeyyyyyyyuuuuuuuuuuuwwwwwwwww! Nasty!

I had the same thing happen when I read this book about some guys that where in a plane crash somewhere in the Andes... But no pictures there, thank Hecate.

I have several snakes and other pets (as well as the dogs). I figure we are what the gods made us, I ain't going to argue with the way the snakes and the ferret are put together. I think they're pretty close to perfect they way they are. So we each eat what we eat and I'll jest enjoy it while I can

BTW Shael, your sig quote gave me the shivers. Goood.

i do research, i dont eat eggs or cheese or drink milk and their are cruelty free shampoos, cleaning products and such, i would never wear animal. i said i was working towards it, i somtimes use products with animal in it but the point isnt to be perfect and pure but to help end suffering the best you can. and to matthew...the land used for facotry farms could be used to grow plants and crap to feed the starving people of this world where animals cant, same goes for the massive amounts of grain the animals eat. besides if we can be healthy ww/o meat than why eat it...and im not trying to argue so dont u try , i wanted to inform u people, i dont care what u eat...i love u anyways!

Well, turn of events for me, today for my tea (dinner, whatever), I had mashed potato, peas and some pork.

I ate the mashed potato, ate the peas, and didn't touch the pork...

What does that make me?
It looked tasty, but I wasn't hungry!

*cracks up*

I can't do it!

IMO being a vegitarian is not healty at all you need meat and protein in your daily life to stay healthy. If you think you can just take vitimans for the rest of your life but you still wouldn't be as healthy.

EDIT: oh yeh and im not hateing on u guys so theres no need to hate on me. i need friends not enemys.

Heh. I Respect your respect for the envirometn... but I've been raised my whole life eating meat... so it would be rather difficult for me to revert to being a vegitarian. I love veggies. Just recently, I found a love for broccoli. I used to hate it... but I tried it and I was like Yummy!!! I also like to eat some salads, and I love oragnes, grapes, watermelon, apples, banannas, pinapples, and cocunuts... heh... I try to not eat tons of meat... but I can't help it

I can respect the choice of vegetarians and vegans because it's their life and it's no business of mine to tell them what to do. The only time vegetarians/vegans bother me is when a couple arrogant loudmouths decide it's their business to tell me how bad a person because I eat meat.

And personally I developed a strong dislike for soy products. They just taste nasty to me.
