    I don't think plants have feelings. Plants don't experience suffering like those of us with a CNS do. Pain wouldn't be a necessary quality for a plant to have. Some wish to break themselves off from the "cycle" of such tragic suffering.

    With lactose issues, I can't eat dairy. Unwillingly. But I was vegetarian for over a decade. Why? Meat can be scary. Too much meat is really scary. And I'm not crazy about meat processing plants. But the biggest reason was discovering that many animals that eventually become meat are fed bits of their friends that also have bits of their friends' poo in them. That pretty much did me in on meat. Since the introduction of free range meat I've recently become a once-a-week meat eater. No more. It's helps keep the pants on, as well. I did not miss meat when I stopped eating it. Not once. I only started eating meat again to increase my restaurant variety.

    Default Any vegans or vegetarians?

    I was slightly curious if going vegan or vegetarian could be correlated more so or less so with particular mbti types. Is anyone on this board a vegan or vegetarian? If so, what made you decide to change your diet and what is your personality type?

    For me, going vegetarian has been one of the best decisions I've ever made. It's not always easy, but I'm always proud of myself when I'm able to pass up that burger or steak. I hope to eventually cut out more dairy, seafood and eggs from my diet as well. But I'm moving in steps. I just don't agree with the factory slaughter houses. I'd feel a lot more comfortable with meat eating if each man went out and hunted his own. But the life of a dairy cow, or egg laying chicken, or that future bacon, is a truly sad existence. And the demands that these factory slaughter houses have to keep up with is out of control. Not only is the human population higher, but also, meat is eaten more often and with more meals... and more meat variety per one meal. It's quite absurd! No one ever needs that much protein in one day! Higher demands leads to crummier lives for these animals and sloppier techniques to get the job done.
