    Well this went down a road I didn't expect it to go down. Just to clarify, I don't think I'm above people who choose to eat meat. That's their choice just like it's my choice not to. Watch the documentary Earthlings if you'd like to see why I choose to live this way.

    Do you use shampoo?

    Body soaps?

    Any medicine ever created in a laboratory?

    What about some plastics?

    Some glues?

    How about some inks?



    Not eating animals doesn't mean you're avoiding animal cruelty. It just means you're avoiding eating animals that may or may not have been treated cruelly.

    I use Vegan body wash and shampoo. I use ibuprofen if I have a bad headache, ya I'm guilty of that. I don't have any use for plastics or glues to be honest. Ya well I refuse to take part in it and that's my choice.

    Barring an extreme lifestyle (like Cody Lundin living in the desert hippy), I'd bet all of my future wages that within 20 feet of your front door is an egregious example of animal cruelty.

    I guess my point is this: we're not going to ever stop using animals for things. Rather than avoiding all of the benefits of using our resources (animals in this case), I think it'd be wiser to work toward ways to make processes more humane for animals.

    I'll check that one out. Peaceable Kingdom did it for me.

    Or the bees that are kept captive to pollinate the farms for nuts and veggies that vegans eat? Or the BACTERIA ON THE PLANTS? They're alive too!

    This is why I hate the vegan/vegetarian conversation. Somebody will dissect your way of life until they find one contradiction as if that could shatter the entire thing.

    It's about being aware; caring; giving a ****; making an effort to minimize the cruelty. You don't have to be perfect in every action to care and make a difference.

    It's funny that these days the radicals are the ones seeking an increase of compassion. Part of the reason I've given up hope for our species.

    I'm not giving him heat for being vegan. I have no qualms with such a lifestyle, but it's practically impossible to live a connected life in modern society without contributing to animal cruelty. I'm pointing out general hypocrisy.

    I'm not advocating torturing animals or even cruelty. However, many of the advancements that we enjoy are directly related to animal cruelty.

    It's not dissecting your lifestyle. It's the claims along the lines of "I don't like cruelty" when your very lifestyle necessitates some cruelty alternative to (and often part of) what most people are tolerant of. I HAAAAAAAAAAATE more than anything when someone pulls the "watch this video and you'll understand" card. We're a species that had no problem dropping atomic bombs on innocent people. We're ****ed up. Watching a sob story isn't going to make me realize that we're ****ed up - I get that now. It's natural for people to want to eat meat. It's natural to want to eat plants.

    Many forms of life require another form of life for food. It's just the nature of life. Who are we to judge if a plant is more/less valuable than an animal or vice versa? Eat because we need food. Eat responsibly because we're all dependent on earth to provide a place to live.

    What would you rather eat, horse....or ammonia-washed 'pink slime'?

    You'd be surprised about the disgusting products they put in some of our food.
