I'm a freaking carnivore. But I love my veggies... and pretty much anything else you put in front of me I will eat... But I still consider fish as animals, therefore meat. People confuse me.

Thank you for letting me know that I am still making a bit of a difference. It makes me feel terribly guilty that I cannot go vegan and still get all the nutrition that my body needs.

My boyfriend has to lecture me about how I need the animal products once a day to be healthy; I did the math and I need 55 grams of protein a day, and I can't get that anywhere else :(

I also can't be too picky, I'm already allergic to enough stuff limit my diet enough...

People like to call them "aquatic vertebrates" which according to some are not animals... So "terrestrial vertebrates" aren't animals either?

I cannot live without meat. Lamb, Beef, Chicken, and BAAACOOOOONNN...
I find it kind of stupid that people wouldn't consider fish as animals...

And for all you people wondering why people want to become vegetarian for no reason, it is a little thing called attention...


No offense to anyone who has a reason. Whether it be ethical, or allergenic, ect.

I am a male sapient being.

People become vegetarians because it's the 'cool new thing to do.' It makes me mad. I feel like I'm getting judged by being a vegetarian.

I might become a vegetarian one day but I love chicken way too much, and I don't want to become anemic, also I don't want to be one because my health would plummet, seeing as I hate veggies. I love fruit though!
I have a vegan friend, she thinks meat is cruel and dairy is gross, only she hates produce so all she eats is carbs, and random junk food. It is a GOOD thing she exercises a lot.
