What type of Veg*n are you? Here, I'm a shmegan ('cause I eat honey, don't worry about vitamin D3, etc.) To people IRL, I'm vegan.
Why are you Veg*n? Because I don't want to contribute to the torture and suffering of animals. And because I have loved many animals and don't want to cause the deaths of possible friends. I also think being veg is one of the easiest, best things that I can do to slow environmental degradation. Plus, I feel healthiest and happiest as a vegan.
When did you go Veg*n? When I was 13 in 1995. I became vegan in 2002 when I was 19.
What influenced you to go Veg*n? Originally, I just became very uncomfortable with the idea of animals being killed so I could eat them. It wasn't until later that I learned about factory farming and the environmental issues. Once I knew about those, I felt increasingly guilty about including dairy and eggs in my diet. Then, when I was 19, I learned I had a dairy allergy, so it seemed like a good time to go for it. It was hard at first, but I'm really, really happy with it now (the 60 pound reduction in my weight probably helped with that.) It's great to know that I don't take part in that horrible industry anymore.
