And no harvesting of crops, either. Rabbits, mice and other field animals all die in droves during the harvest.

I do wonder is PETA in favour of wind power? because those big turbines kill a lot of birds.

I just know that if I had to kill it to eat it, I'd be a vegetarian.
Yup, I'm a hypocrite.

Be careful about that wind power subject... now that's subject for a heated debate!

i am so surprised.. how one can be SO INSENSITIVE and GROSS...

I strictly avoided eating meat for 4 years between 1995 to 1999...
but today I have removed the word strictly.

I avoid meat as FAR as possible !! If I go to a restaurent alone, I never ORDER meat....amongs friends, I always tell I prefer anything VEG

the bottom line is no one is concerned unless it involves them or their pet..or something...

if it something elsewhere..its ok...yes its ok..

1) About veg diet being nutrionwise insufficient is RUBBISH..

2) Logic about killing plants same as killing animal is absurd argument. Have you ever seen how an animal dies just after its killed for meat ?

3) Logic about comparing killing animals for our meat to lion killing other animals...means...We ( me included...) are all animals like lion or whatever... right

I have nothing against people eating meat ( all my friends eat meat)... I too eat meat....but the explanation part.....please be more honest..

Most of us here eat meat..its ok (not moral ..not immoral) ...but request all not to justify it in a WAY that is simply not correct !!!

Hi. My rule of thumb is, I don't eat anything I couldn't kill with my bare hands. So I allow myself seafood. I think that makes me a pectotarian (sp?). Eventually, I'd like to become fully vegetarian but I'm slowly weaning myself off meat.

It would be arrogant of me to judge meateaters who haven't decided to follow "my" rule. However, I don't like it when meateaters turn to vegetarians and go, "So what, I have a clear conscience. Well, I'm off to pick up my groceries, some steaks, eggs, milk and pork roasts...."

Where's the respect.

Meateaters may think that eating meat is in our blood and it's the natural way of living; heck animals in the wild kill each other for meat, so why can't we, right? I agree, but I think the way we source our meat today is not natural at all. I don't like the way chickens are cooped up in an A4-sized area battery cage for one purpose only. I don't like the idea of cows being systematically bled, skinned and chopped up.

That's just me. I guess everyone will choose their own eating choices but I encourage the questioning.

Slightly off the topic ..but I hate it when MEAT- EATER says..

"See I have become vegetarian for 20 days"

I am not making it up..it happened with one of my friends.

20 days !!!!!

And announcing that EACH and EVERY DAY that she has turned VEG only for 20 days ...and craving for MEAT every Friday of that 20 days when we have lunch together... ( along with other friends)

what did she try to prove..God only know

I can understand it if it is 6 months or 1 year..2 year or 5 year...

but 20 days...............



everyone is a vegetarian between lunch and dinner...and anyway..for me...veg or non-veg is NOT a big deal...whatever u want..be honest..be consistent..know facts...dont make things up...eat whatever is LEGAL in ur nation ..i dont have ANY problem with it..

about PETA..if it is not irritating or knocking door to door...or something like that..its ok.. else I dont like advice passed on to me....!!! "Hey AcrobatMan - this is XYZ, eat this to save that..or dont eat this to do prevent that". I hate such things.

Encouraging questioning yes. Friends and I were discussing the price of free range eggs once, and another friend who was in the middle of an animal science course piped up with some facts about free range eggs and how hens in these conditions suffer. I thought she was joking until she pointed out the pecking order dictates that a group of hens will only allow 12 I think it was, hens, and any more cause them to fight viciously. She then pointed out the other dangers of foxes and wild cats etc these free range hens face. Not really ideal either. She might have been talking about the Hawkesbury/Nepean region specifically, but I assume my locality is not unique and any region with rural trade has similar issues.

I would like to be a vegetarian, but health will not allow me to. There isn't enough lentils in this world to keep me fit and well. I reckon the facets of food production PETA are so admantly against disturb many of us, but the lack of availability in alternate food sources is a real issue. And complacency.

I remember one local politician who has same views as PETA as saying

"Drinking milk of another animal is like drinking blood"

I used to laugh at it for couple of years.. Now it makes some sense to me.

Its too hard for us to think like that and then survive...But laugh at me or call me crazy , she has a point..

And I am being hypocrite saying this and still will have tea with milk..that would have been for the young one of another animal.


The survival technique...dont think too much ..ignore and be selfish ....I am telling this to myself ...okay...
