I've managed to turn my mother off eating sausages...I told her the crunchy bits in sausages are actually eyeballs
She believed me!!!! And my lil sis won't eat eggs anymore as she thinks that they have rooster sperm swimming around in them..(she's not the blonde in our family either)...well, now my mother won't eat them either after someone else (who mind you eats animals flesh anyway) told her he wont touch eggs as they are unborn feutuses.....
tell them that the contents of an egg is actually menstrual waste
(which it is). If that doesn't turn somebody's stomach, I don't know what will. Eating menstrual waste cannot appeal to ANYBODY. It makes me want to puke just thinking about it.
Great that you have brought your family one step closer to vegetarianism. I always think that making people fall in love with an animal also helps. If there are animal lovers in your family, just stress the fact that "food" animals are animals too, not vegetables, and can suffer and be sad just as much as the family pet.
You may also want to tell your mom that pigs ars smarter than three year old children and most dogs! And also that they are gentle animals and therefore do not deserve a violent death.
While I can understand people's reluctance to go vegan, it is really NOTHING to ask of somebody to go at least veg. The whole world should be veg right now - it is simply intolerable that it is not!!!
Sorry for my little rant. Great job in living by example savebabe!
P.S. Are you sure I shouldn't try petting a wild kangaroo!
P.P.S. I noticed you said you had chickens. How did you manage to end up with chickens? Did you save them from slaughter?
