Vegetarian, to be or not to be?

I'm 15 and I've been a vegan since I was 13 and vegetarian since I was 8. I turned vegetarian when I ate a bacon sandwich and felt really guilty about the pig that I had eaten. When I was 13 I realized that torturing animals is just as bad as, if not worse than, killing the animal. I don't find it hard and never have done because I think of the poor animals whenever I see meat. Watch this video on youtube, Meet Your Meat, it shows what most slaughterhouses are really like. And it goes for most dairy farms too. If you can't watch it then you shouldn't be eating meat. I would really suggest becoming vegan though; animals are still cruelly kept and harmed for other products too.

Hope this helps you to make the right choice :) Peace and love, Iggy

I say go Vegetarian, at the least.
Eating meat in my opinion, is just bad. The reason I've stopped eating meat is:
1.) Against my beliefs.
2.) Bad for the environment.
3.) Animals are friends, not food.

What I believe in, is Creatiolutionism. I'm unaware if I'm the only one who believes in this, but these are MY beliefs, and I'm sticking to them. Basically, the Creator, (God) created everything, and anything that is in existence, including life. The Creator gave life to , not immediate human life, but life, none the less. The creator gave all life the ability to adapt, and evolve, and better themselves. We evolved from the tide pool, where most life originated. We became tiny organisms, then evolved into fish, then to amphibians, then to birds, mammals, insects, ect, ect. Therefore, we are all connected in one way or another. We all came from each other, if that makes sense. So if I were to eat a cow, or chicken, or fish, it's like eating a distant relative. And why would I want something to die, just for me to live another day? No life is more, or less important than another. All living creatures are equal. That's pretty much why I became vegetarian. I'm pretty much vegan, but I rarely eat cheese. -_-

In my way of thinking, I do not worship a supreme deity, but only give thanks for what the Creator has provided. Thinking such as I, would absolutely resolve the need for "Holy Wars", which are ignorant to the extreme. Religion only divides, and seldomly brings together.

The transition wasn't as difficult as I thought it would be. I find even the smell of meat repulsive.

Eat spinach, it's packed with loads of iron! :D

I don't listen to people who bitch about my eating style, and diet.
I know that I'm physically, mentally, and spiritually, healthier than they.
No need to fight them over it.
(:

Hope that helped!

I will agree that cruel methods used to slaughter methods should be regulated and punished because it is wrong.After all, what if an alien race took over and they farmed us like cattle? The least they could do is do it with a little dignity. Then again, what if vegetables could cry out in pain? Would you stop eating them too? Probably not, because at the end of the day humans will first eat what they want. If they can't have that, they will eat what is available. That is why our ancestors needed/apreciated meat.
