I was just curious as to know why some of you are vegans, vegeterians, or whatever you may be. I read some older messages and it seems like a lot of people are into being what they are like shoving it down other people's throat. It's almost as if some people are becomming what they are just so they can be like "Oh look what I am! I am so superior and my ways are so much better than the rest of yours". Someone even claimed that vegeterianism is "right". But if you ask me....right is a word. It's defined as whatever people define it as. Is there really a right? If I want to, I could kill my mother and say "oh it was right". But is it? And does anybody really care what everyone else is? Do the meat eaters really get offended by people that want to eat only plants? Do the plant eaters really get offended by the people who eat meat? Why do people choose to eat what they eat. I don't know about anyone else...but I eat what I eat because that's what I want to eat. I don't eat because I think anything is right or wrong. I eat things that make me feel good, and what makes me feel good might make some of you feel awful. So why would I go around trying to make people feel bad about what they eat. I don't want someone telling me what to eat, so I'm not going to tell other people what to eat or that what they are eating is wrong. Shouldn't we eat what we want based on our own thoughts? Is anybody really right or wrong on this meat/plant issue? I just wanted to see if I am alone on this boat or not, and I think we should eat for ourselves and not worry about what the other person wants to eat. You have the choice to put what you want into your mouth...and so does everyone else. So why does it matter who eats what? If everyone becomes vegeterianism, animals will still die. If everyone is a meat eater, animals will die. Animals will always die. Plants will always die. People will always die. Let's just eat what we want...and not worry about what other people want to eat.
