    Being a vegetarian is so cliche these days. It seems like every single teenage girl who is trying to save the earth by becoming a vegetarian. Give me a break!

    I see it as a trend.

    But, there are rational reasons to actually become a vegetarian.

    1) Health issues.
    2) If you truly are against eating meat, and think it will make a difference.
    3) If you really don't like the taste of it and/or are sickened out by it.
    4) If you'd like to become healthier. Meat isn't too healthy (especially red meat).

    Other than these three reasons, I don't see why people would choose to become one. It doesn't make you unique, there are a billion other granola eating-tofu chewing-Birkenstock wearing new age yuppies out there. You just look like a fucking idiot.

    MEAT ALL THE WAY!!!

    ^ that picture right there pretty much sums up why I never want to return to the states ever. (and its not because of the meat fyi)

    but i agree vegetarianism is quite a cliche, but I still enjoy being one. it's considerably healthier than eating meat considering all the steroids they shoot up the cows with nowadays.

    LOL, yeah. I was incorporating a bit of sarcasm in to prove my point. I really don't find any truth behind vegetarianism in a lot of people.

    But it sounds like you actually have a reason to be one, so I respect that.

    I'm quasi-veg, meaning that I eat less meat that the average American and can go days or weeks and one time even went months without eating meat. It's healthier to eat less meat. It's a relatively recent development to have meat as many times per day as present day Americans do. I try to buy organic and free range when I can, because I also don't think it's okay to torture animals if I am going to choose to eat them.

    Vegetarianism is pretty silly if you live on cheese pizza and chocolate bars, but I still don't understand the anger towards it. The anger towards vegetarianism doesn't make any sense at all to me. In the grocery store the other day I saw where someone had placed a bunch of containers of raw hamburger and pork in a portable cooler that held vegetarian meals. Why? What's the point in that? Maybe it was a teenager rebelling for the hell of it, but I also see an awful lot of adults who have a misplaced desire to torture vegetarians.

    Interesting.

    I don't think that eating red meat, even in large quantities, is intrinsically unhealthy all by itself. In combination with other lifestyle factors it may be bad. On the other hand, the Inuit lived on meat, fat, and fish almost exclusively for a very long time, and were not particularly unhealthy because of it.
