I seem to remember there was one, but that was when I was a guest, or maybe that was another forum.

BTW, I hate it when people, say bf/gf in speech, it sounds really stupid, it doesn't apply in this context though tongue.gif.

Well, I could since my culture is every twice a month I could if not must, be a vegetarian.

WARNING: If you are eating meat right now, do not read this. You have been warned!

Mostly, I hate meat when I imaging it came from animals. Ughhh...the pain. They got slaughtered and then ate by people.

I find there's nothing wrong killing for meat / sustainance. It's a natural thing. Eat or be eaten.

I DO, however, have a VERY big thing against killing animals for anything else like skin for luxury clothes or nonsense like that. Or rhinos for their horns, tigers for their bones, elephants for their tusks... etc etc. I hate that.

Alright. I'll shut up now.

What! I'm actually the only vegetarian! Hmm... I like the taste of meat in general, but well, I just don't like to eat animals. But I don't have anything against those who eat meat. As already stated, it's a natural thing. People were meant to eat other animals... I'm just a nature defying type tongue.gif *wants to defy all laws of nature and physics*. I just always had a problem with seeing animals killing other animals, seeing them be eaten...*childhood traumas*. The episode in FMA when Ed and Al were on the island was freaky to me too...
People go on about me not eating healthily and it being bad for sports and blah... well I eat eggs and drink milk anyway and don't grow anymore soo...
plus my haemoglobin is high anyway tongue.gif (well, at the moment).

I'm not a vegetarian, but my sister is, and so is my best friend. She's Hindu - Brahman. They aren't supposed to eat meat, but her dad does ^__^. She won't even touch meat. She doesn't eat eggs or drink milk. She likes soy milk.

You're not alone, Kihaku. I'm a vegetarian aswell.

I wish meat grew on trees so I could actually eat it. sad.gif

Or maybe if they bred an animal that wants us to eat it, that would be cool (like the one they had in Douglas Adams' 'The Restaurant at the End of the Universe' book. That's such a brilliant idea!).

.........ok I tried posting some whole rant on my dislike for anti-hunting arguments to explain part of my reasoning with eating meat, but I lost the stupid connection and thusly a good 10 minutes of typing that I'm not going to repeat >.<

hagane no hitsuji: Yay! Another vegetarian! I actually don't mind not eating meat, it's just what the others say that bugs me... I like meat, but can easily live without it. Vegetarian food tastes much better anyway biggrin.gif and I feel better that I don't have to eat animals
Are you saying that if meat wasn't an animal then you would eat it?
I still wouldn't want to eat an animal that wants to be eaten...it's still an animal, but I guess it would be easier.. I don't know

i can never understand why some vegans/vegetarians believe that not eating meat will save animals from cruelty...

no offense or anything, i'm just perplexed.

we must kill animals one way or another, that is the role that omnivores play within the natural order of things. all animals must kill other animals in some capacity, whether this be for defense, through compeptition for lands, or as a result of hunting for food. only humans are foolish enough to think that all life is equal and has rights, nature is a cruel mistress.

with that said i do find it wasteful of western society to only eat roughly 2/5 of any animal that is slaughtered. though it could also be argued said animals would not exist if it would not have been for the fact that they are bred for the express purpose of being killed for meat. in which case they MUST be killed, lest their existance be an unbalancing factor for the ecosystem they exist in.

as for the organic meat argument, well it is a good solution except for one factor... based upon the extended lifespan and current eating habits for humanity as a whole, earth does NOT have the resources to support all the animals required to sustain humanity in an organic manner. there simply is not enough grazing land. either humanity has to shift to a higher plant to meat ratio within our diets or more effiecient animials must be eaten.

as for animal cruelty issues, if you personally don't support skin as fashion don't buy it. but there are those who do, and is their right. however anyone that has a prolem with animal testing better use only ancient remedies, as all medicines must be animal tested to ensure that there are no side effects before human trials. even with the ancient remedies certain treatments must require animals to die. it is the simple truth of nature that any being higher on the food chain has the right to do with whatever they wish to any animal lower on it, as long as such actions do not endanger the continued existance of the higher being's species. this does not factor in morality or any other likewise concepts as within nature such things are irrelevant.

*applauds*

I concur.

refusing to eat a palte full of beef is even more cruel than eating it- at least when you eat the beef you' haven't let the animal's death go to waste.
