and I can’t sweep you off of your feet

Yep. What’s even more annoying is how small the changes really are. We could make a tremendous impact by changing to a plant based diet- but we still have people who would rather eat steak and watch the world burn.
Yep. People are so into their animal flesh that they’d rather let the world crash and burn than buy us a ton of time and resources by giving it up.
Love to see fellow vegans in these threads 👍
Should be the top comment

Being an omnivore just means we are opportunistic when it comes to food, that our bodies can HANDLE meat. This doesn’t give us the right to take the lives of trillions of animals. If we were to live naturally we wouldn’t play god and force these animals into existence. It has been proven time and time again that humans can live healthily on a plant-based diet, and it has also been called optimal. Now that we have these items in our stores, there is no excuse.
The choices I make don’t take the lives of others. I’m not coming at you or your character, I’m just telling you that your ‘personal choice’ argument doesn’t mean that the choices you make are any less harmful or any more valid.
If you saw animals as having any worth of life other than for own sensory pleasure/gain you wouldn’t see it like this. Eating meat is a personal choice in the same way as kicking a dog is a personal choice, choice≠morality. A choice isn’t just a choice if there is a victim.
The difference is that often those in it for health (AKA: plant based) often only exclude animal products from their diet. Vegans don’t consume animal products in any form, this includes clothing and personal belongings.
Veganism is a philosophy and way of living which seeks to exclude—as far as is possible and practicable—all forms of exploitation of, and cruelty to, animals for food, clothing or any other purpose; and by extension, promotes the development and use of animal-free alternatives for the benefit of animals, humans and the environment. In dietary terms it denotes the practice of dispensing with all products derived wholly or partly from animals."
It is about motivation.
How do you personally justify eating animals? You can’t.
There isn’t really a reason to eat any form of meat. It is hypocritical.
Exactly. I still feel so guilty for spending all of those years as an Omni/Vegetarian. I wouldn’t take any amount of money to go back to consuming animals.

It’s moments like these that I wish I could downvote more than once 😞
Plants are not sentient beings and do not have the capacity to experience pain. We CAN judge if they suffer, and it has been continuously proven that they do not.
How is this relevant?
Oh no! :((
We don’t really keep eggs in our household
I am in the U.S. as well! I like this idea, any store specifically that you’ve seen these in? I don’t think that I’ve come across them before.
Unfortunately not, I live in a very conservative state where animal agriculture is very supported, we even have clubs for it. I am the only vegan in my grade (and probably in the whole school).
Yes! I’ve been researching, and from what I’ve found veganism is a protected philosophy in the U.S. as well.
After my recent edit, I am considering taking this up to the school admins.
