    She’s kind of a hippy and is a vegan. She not controlling or anything, but she really hates when I eat meat and gets really judgemental about it. Whenever she sees me eating meat, she starts talking about slaughter house statistics and how cruel it is to eat meat. I don’t really care about the meat, I can give it up if I want, but I don’t want her think that she can just change everything about me that she doesn’t like. In the past I used to have a pilot’s license as a hobby, but she dumped me because she said she’s afraid of airplanes and said she was sick of constantly worrying about me dying in a plane crash. She also persuaded me into quitting smoking two years ago. In general I love her and she’s really funny, easy going and pleasant to be around, but the meat and airplane stuff bugs me. I’d never tell her what to do. BTW, I’m 27, she’s 24.

  • Should I become a vegetarian?

    Im a 21 yrs old guy and still single. The problem is that I'd probably live the rest of my life being single (without a wife and kids) so no one's gonna take care of me when I get old.

    I recently saw a video called "If Slaughterhouses had Glass Walls..." and it showed me how cruel the meat industry is to animals. I know that animals must be killed to obtain meat, but I never knew how much animal really suffered until i saw this video. I haven't been able to eat meat without feeling guilty, and today I couldn't eat it at all. I was feeling sickened by the fact that i was eating a creature that endured a lifetime of bloody gory suffering. Is the whole meat industry this cruel? Should i go vegetarian?

  • Why do most vegans look sickly, yet people still buy into veganism?

    I understand that people can survive on a vegan diet, but I've met very few vegans who are healthy. They are usually either overweight or just really flabby, and have very little energy. There are some exceptions though, like those with faster metabolism.

  • Why don't vegans drink milk or eat eggs?

    I don't understand this because my friend lives on a farm and has cows and chickens. She told me that if cows are not milked they will die. Why don't vegans drink milk if it is in no way harming the cow? I also don't understand what the point of not eating unfertilized eggs is. What else would happen to... show more
    I don't understand this because my friend lives on a farm and has cows and chickens. She told me that if cows are not milked they will die. Why don't vegans drink milk if it is in no way harming the cow? I also don't understand what the point of not eating unfertilized eggs is. What else would happen to the eggs if people didn't eat them? Other animals would probably eat them, but that's the same as people eating them, because people are animals. Another thing I would like to point out is the fact that animals do indeed eat other animals, so why is it considered wrong for people to eat animals? Please no rude remarks because I am in no way meaning to insult anyone. I'm just confused.

  • Why wont vegans drink milk?

    I understand that they wont eat eggs because they may feel like they are killing a potetial baby chick but if a cow on a farm is humanly treated and the calf allowed to nurse why couldn't you milk the cow and drink it? How does that harm the cow or the environment? I'm not talking about big dairy farms... show more
    I understand that they wont eat eggs because they may feel like they are killing a potetial baby chick but if a cow on a farm is humanly treated and the calf allowed to nurse why couldn't you milk the cow and drink it? How does that harm the cow or the environment? I'm not talking about big dairy farms where they take away the calves and hook the cows up to machines. I just don't understand why drinking milk isn't concidered a proper thing to do. What do vegans feed their children to keep them healthy and their bones strong? Without taking calcium suppliments which often come from animals how do you get calcium in your diet?
