Hm, I was wondering if there were any other vegetarians or any vegans on here, or if I'm the only one surrounded but a bunch of meat eaters...
i don't eat meat. it's not because i have some sort of a moral or ideological issue against it -- i've just never liked it.
i feel pretentious calling myself a "vegetarian," as though the fact that i don't eat meat were a fundamental part of my identity. it doesn't define me; i just don't eat the stuff. do people who don't like cheese feel like they need a word to define their identity? (noncheeseitarians?)
on the other hand, i'm pretty hard-core about it. i couldn't imagine eating any kind of meat or fish; just thinking about it makes me feel sick to my stomach. i've never been able to understand how people could think of an animal's dead body as food. i'm fine with eating eggs and dairy products; i just feel profoundly uncomfortable with the idea of cutting up a corpse and serving it for dinner. i've felt that way ever since i was an infant, and i haven't eaten any meat since i was probably 6 or 7 years old.
QFT--I myself just enjoy semi-advertising vegetarianism because i see it as a form of progression, as it is indeed healthy. I although do not want to be the guy who is shoving his "awesome" lifestyle down another's throat..that is in fact the opposite of what I want to do.
I just like to, what you'd call...spread the word:educate:
not me, man. plenty of people need meat in their diet. i know people who have tried to go vegetarian but they craved meat all the time and couldn't feel full or satisfied without it. i've heard that the amount of meat you need in your diet depends on your blood type.
i think if you like eating meat you should eat all the meat you want -- in fact it would probably be unhealthy for you to try to go without it. it's just not my thing, and i stay perfectly healthy without it.
