Because more people are mind limited. Because someone told them to harm is ok, that suffering of someone else (yes, someone, because animals are someone, not something) doesn't matter. I've been vegetarian for 15 years and I don't regret it for a second! This is the right choise, this is a way to live, not a habbit or thinking. Leonardo da Vinchi said it long ago: "The day will come, when men such us I will look upon the murder of animals as they look upon the murder of men."
Exactly, I'm slowly working my way towards becoming a vegetarian, but there are people using "Plants like living too." as an argument. I don't get why people have to get angry at others for what they choose to eat. Not like you're taking drugs. And you CAN live without meat. Two of my cousins have been vegetarians their whole lives, and they don't have any major problems.
One of my teachers became vegetarian because she didn't like the taste of meat, not because she didn't support the idea of hunting. Its stupid on when you tell some people you are vegetarian they baw about you being all peta and shit.
The reason I hate vegans is usually because they go on and on and on about how better they are than omnivores as if they are oh so holy, when its only a diffrent diet. But I respect vegans that don't try to force their lifestyle in other peoples faces. you seem decent.
Honestly, I'm not a vegetarian myself, but Vegetarian Demonizing is annoying. I also hate all the stamps that say "Vegetables have feelings to. Don't you care about the vegetables, you stupid vegans?" Gee, I dunno. Why don't you ask the thousands of dead animals that died to feed you that you obviously don't care about, hypocrite!
I want to be vegan but my mom thinks I'm anorexic for not eating meat. Um, how is not wanting hormones and tortured animals in my plate bad? I still won't eat any meat or at least replace it with fish -_-

Y'know, I'm so glad there's a stamp like this here. I'd fav it, but unfortunately I'm not a vegetarian, so please excuse and forgive me. However, I love eating veggies, give me a plain head of broc and I'm good! I am not some typical pro-meat idiot either. I select meat from non-abusive sources and I make sure to do my homework. Vegans and Vegetarians don't bother me at all, and to be honest I envy them and their will power. I honestly don't understand why people get so worked up about it either, frankly I find it effin' stupid.
I know right! People are such jerks to me about it! They bring it up all the time, then they say i'm shoving it down their throats! WTF! They all say man didn't climb to the top of the food chain to eat soy! Well i don't think man made it to the top just to eat everything under him!
I only become a bit outspoken about my vegetarian views if someone says something out of hate towards our ways or asks me why I do it Don't mention it and I have no reason to tell you what a horrible person you are and that you're supporting an atrocious industry ;D Seriously though, just let me be an herbivore What's wrong with that? People take change too harshly. Anything different from the norm is bad to most everyone <_> Which sucks because I have a lot of abnormal things people can hate me for. I'm hated on for having curly hair (seems a bit senseless), being an atheist, and of course, being an animal-loving vegetarian who sees the human race under darker skies than most /: WHAT KIND OF WORLD IS THIS?! ;_;
I don't like telling people I'm a vegetarian, I never know how they react, especially if they are boys, not wanting to sound sexist but they seem to take it worse. Once a boy attached me with a chicken leg because he didn't want me to be hungry :C
I'm sorry to say that I was a bitch to meateater when I was 11-13 until my friend became a vegetarian and was always lecturing people soying me what a bitch I was actually being. telling them they were murderer and so on so I deceive a little beratement I 3.
My brother is all worked up because I'm a vegetarian, but he has no problem when the girl he has a crush on is vegetarian... He's just weird like that. My parents are the only ones who have a right to be angry at all, because they have to pay for my tofu, but they don't care. He pointed out that soy bean fields took up forest land, but if we were eating meat then would it just be slaughter houses and animal farms taking up the forest area? Glad to see this stamp.
My brother is the same way! He just stares at my plate like it offends him or something, and then waves a piece of steak in my face like he's trying to hypnotize me with it saying "Steeeeaaak. Steaaaak!!!". It's funny, sometimes.
Hate when people is commenting that you are a vegeterian. And when you tell your friends that you ARE a vegeterian they go like: Aaaa! I wanna be a vegeterian too! or I am a vegeterian! So ennoying. <.<
lolz i get what you mean XD they tend to make it their problem saying how you are wrong and that the screaming tomatoes hate you(quite frankly i haven't heard one cry out to me, have you?) ....lol ignorance XD and yah i agree with punkGRl it seems the opposite way for me....i mind my own buisness and what do ya know ppl start going "mmmmmmmm chicken" right next to me. I even try to be nice to all meat eaters, i commented on one's food once and said how it looked good, and then they are like "well too bad you can't eat it..." its like O.o !Well!...XD
Hahaha, I know. I have people eating meat infront of me and of course I can't help to, like want a bite, and they all go "you should eat it, I'm not telling anyone" or they are constantly offering meat though they know I don't eat it. And yes, I've had people telling me that plants also have feelings and that I should probably just eat fallen apples, it's a bit frustrating every now and then.
hahahah well yah the plants having feelings thing does get old...believe me. some people are fruititarians and only eat fruit that has fallen off a tree.....i think that is respectable...but i'm happy with just being vegan...if i'm happy here i don't think i need to go much farther. but hey if people are bothering you why not try some witty comebacks?? in google you can look up a ton of comebacks to say to meateaters if they start to bother you. i think one of my favorite ones was when someone said...."well what about the poor plants?? you are killing them" (yahdah yah) and the person was like "I'll make you a deal, you watch a video of animal slaughterhouses and i'll watch a video of a strawberry harvest " that cracked me up thinking about it i plan to use it should the need ever arise XD
Probably because some people have run into one too many vegetarians criticizing omnivores for eating what they do and trying to convert them. I've seen it done quite a number of times before... so some people have an aversion towards vegetarians because of their experiences.
If it's not any trouble, would it be possible for you to make a version that says something like "Some people choose to be vegetarian" ( Or something similar to that. I'm not sure how it should be written. ) instead, because, while I support the choice, I am not a vegetarian. If not, it's fine!
