    in the article it said Being a Vegetarian is Cool. that's the reason some people hate vegetarian and think they are. Some vegetarian i know think they are better and people who eat meat are dirty or disgusting. and they can't stop telling people about it and always make it a big deal

    i don't eat meat either, but i keep it to myself. when i eat out with friend i will eat some meat so i don'

    need special treatment from others

    btw i started this long ago

    Exactly. I have nothing against the views of vegans and meat eaters.
    I just dont admire the "i'm mightier than thou" attitudes.

    i wouldn't mind eating at the same table with a vegan and in fact will have no juging feelings, everything will be normal. I would even admire and support the vege person if he can strongly support with his views and stick to having veges no matter how others views are against (aka ordering veges boldly in public when eating out with carn/omnivores). As long as the vegan do not rub it in my face.

    As for claiming being sentient or not, last time i talked to a chicken, cow, pig, and also the flowers, plants and fungis, (yeah i'm multilingual and proud) none of them complained that they hate their reproductive organs, and protective materials eaten by us and nutrients stolen. I'll interview a fish later.

    Agreed! I have no intention of forcing anyone into anything. My wife still eats the odd bit of meat! I just want to put my views into words in the hope that someone takes something from them :)

    hehe... be a vegeatarian because it is "cool"? Humans have been hunting and eating meat since cavemen days. No, I don't agree with hunting as a sport. I don't agree with cruel animal treatment. Ah well, I love my frog legs and steak, sorry. :)

    I don't think anyone should become a vegetarian because it's cool - on the same token, imagine the number of people who would switch simply because it was! I would never encourage someone to quit for the label, but I'd prefer to see a vegetarian with a big sign on his back than a quiet meat eater :D

    How can you vegetarians be so cruel to animals. There is a big industry raising and supplying meat to meat eaters, now if everyone stopped eating meat there would be no need to raise the animals required so they would never have a chance to live in the first place, by eating them I give them life, at least for a while.

    There's 2 sides to every coin.

    I think this sounds like a really ideal diet - I would like to try to follow this one : ) Hard to resist a good steak once in a while though..

    That's craziness. If no one ate meat than we would simply stop raising livestock for slaughter. Populations of meat bearing animals (cows, pigs, etc) would decrease hugely.

    The only life you give an animal who is being raised for slaughter is a life of confinement, illness and certain death after an unfulfilled life. Not trying to sound preachy here, but that is one argument that simply doesn't hold up.

    I guess I don't understand what the ethical dilemma is. Please explain. As far as health goes, I'm a meat eater. My body fat is under 12% and I'm in the best shape I've ever been in.

    hi im form Cambridge too! unless you;re from the one in america... anyway...

    many scientists say that if we stopped all global warming, and any form of killing animals... the world will still die of global warming etc... so answer this... why stop living life to the full? does it matter anymore? and why campaign for other people to stop whats natural... we killed animals since the start of man... and meat tastes so good..

    all these hippy campaigners have nothing better to do... why do you play on our guilty conscience?

    humans are animals... animals are natural.. so that means anything a human does is natural.. weather we say so or not! there is no argument to that..

    well thats my view
