    Meh. Not really thrilled about bringing up veganism because there's always someone making hostile, dumb comments about it, but I'm here for you (all) for the moral support.

    1. Are you vegan?

    Yes, isn't that who whole thread is for?

    2. Why?

    It started off as a self-challenge, then I became an ethical vegan because I didn't want to support abuse and exploitation.

    3. Name three of your favourite vegan eats.

    PIZZA. french fries. veggie soup.

    4. What is the most difficult part of being vegan?

    Dealing with people who are hostile about veganism.

    5. What is the most rewarding thing about being vegan?

    Decreasing my contribution to exploitation, rape, and murder.
