  1. anyone who's against MADD should be burned at the stake.
  2. Realizations like this is what gives hope for a better future and world for all animals, human and non. Is there any particular event or footage or knowledge that caused you to see your vegetarianism to its logical ethical conclusion? welcome. Well, I spent a lot of time on the peta.org website, and I read up on factory slaughter farms, both through peta and other resources, and I felt so horrible about contributing to such horrible things with no better excuse but, "I love the taste of cheese too much." It was basically one view of the "Meet Your Meat" video on peta's website.... I was in tears by about a minute through. Also, I convinced my parents to adopt a shelter dog (about the smartest, sweetest, most loving and loyal and obedient sister I could ever ask for!). Once I fell in love with her, which did not take long, I could not see beating, skinning, eating, starving, or otherwise torturing her--- how could I possibly condone that treatment towards other non-human people? (I now think of animals as people, too). I feel so terrible for not going vegan sooner! I believe there will be a day in the future when all humans look back and say, "Our ancestors ate other sentient beings?!" When humans treat each other the way they treat non-humans on slaughter farms, it is called assault, abuse, or murder.
  3. My name is Meg, I am a 21 year old cyclist and runner. I've been vegan since just before Thanksgiving 2005. I have been vegetarian for six years, and realized after several stints at a vegan lifestyle, that the animals, my body, and the environment no longer needed my excuses for not going all the way and living a vegan lifestyle. So here I am. I was introduced to Robert Cheeke through myspace, and that's what brings me to this website. I am by no means a bodybuilder, but I love to bike, walk, or run instead of drive, or just run and swim for fun. An active lifestyle is essential to my veganism. I am allergic to wheat, which gave people their doubts when I first went vegan. I was told I could not be active and vegan and allergic to wheat all at the same time. I have certainly proven them wrong. Since I went vegan, I have lost about 30 pounds and plan to lose much more so I am at a healthy weight (goodness, as a lacto-ovo vegetarian, I practically ate nothing but ice cream!). I am glad to live in an area that is so veg-friendly. Most restaurants around here, at the very least, can offer me a vegan option or two. There's even a great all-vegetarian Persian restaurant in the next town over (the rat-torturing university town of Chapel Hill). Feel free to email me or friend me on myspace if you'd like to talk! ~Meg~
  4. I have been aware of my wheat allergy for about a year, and have been doing fine maintaining a vegan lifestyle despite the allergy. (I've been vegetarian for six years and vegan for about eight months). Lately, I have been getting sick every time I eat tempeh or drink soy milk. I am very active, and it's pretty hard to perform up to my potential being sick or hungry all the time. I've still been eating soy foods just to get the protein, but I know I shouldn't be. I am also on a VERY tight budget lately ($30 a week alotted for food).... I have no idea where to find resources on veganism and food allergies, let alone how to cope with all this on a very tight budget! Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Meg
