How many people are sick of Vegetarians being rude to meat-eater's who are just asking questions about how they themselves can become a Vegetarian ? I am sick of it because it's rude, it makes us look bad, it can make the meat-eater give up , people who hate animal rights activist can use this against us to hurt what we are fighting for. Now people who just hate us and try to make us look bad, because we show the light, make me sick. But I say why help these people, and yes when we are rude to those who are trying to become a Vegetarian we help the ones who fight against animal rights.
Anyways I was on the Peta2 boards and a girl in High School wanted to become a Vegetarian but her parent will not let her. Of course one person had to be rude to her and say stupid stuff like your parent can't make you become a Vegetarian. Parents are very powerful we need to understand that some High School Kids are forced to eat meat, its just that simple !! Some parents will just not feed there kids, scream at them , might even hit them, or kick them out of the house if the kids does not do what their parent's say !!!
When a High School kid asks me for help because they love animals, but their parents will not let them become a Vegetarian. I thank them ( they are worthy to be thanked ) If they are cutting back on meat I thank them even more ( they are saving animals lives ). I try to help them. I try to find out why their parents make them eat meat. I try to tell them how they can explain to their parents that being a Vegetarian is so good for you. ect.
Some ARA just say they are making excuses, they say your parents can't force you to eat meat, they never say anything good about the fact that these high school kids want to become a Vegetarian, even if these High School Kids are cutting back on meat they never say that this is good, the High School Kid is saving lives if he/she cuts back on meat but its like this ARA has failed to see this, that is so amazing !!!!!!!
Other meat-eaters ask other questions. Like I love animals but can I eat Lobster, because I heard they don't feel pain. Okay I understand this sounds stupid, but have a heart the Sea Food Business did not make a lot of money by being a bunch of idiots. These Big Boses in the Sea Food Business know how to brainwash people into thinking Lobsters and Crabs don't feel pain. Now some ARA will just say why would you want to hurt a Lobster. I believe the meat-eater made it clear that they loved animals and said they heard Lobster don't feel pain, and that is why they asked if they can eat them. Maybe if the ARA would open their eyes they would see that this meat-eater does not want to hurt Lobster, that they where just asking a question. Maybe the ARA can just be nice about this question and explain to them in a nice way that yes Lobsters do feel pain. Now is that so hard ?
Why do some ARA and Vegetarians feel they have the right to be so rude to some of these meat-eaters who are just asking questions and want to become a Vegetarian ? Do they think they are just better than everyone else because inside they are thinking " I hope people look at me and think a am great because I am a Vegetarian and most people are meat-eaters, I hope they see that I am better than everyone else. " Is this one of the reasons some of them do this ?
Now if they are just trying to help animals that is good but what they don't understand is they are hurting there cause. Because being so rude is going to turn a meat-eater off. Think about it, let's say you where a meat-eater and where thinking hey I love animals maybe I could become a Vegetarian maybe I will ask some ARA for help. So you do and the only thing they say to you is stuff like you are a sick person, stop making excuses, you have no heart ect. Do you think you would still want to become a Vegetarian ? Would you start to believe that ARA are very mean people, especially when others who fight against animal rights tell you all kinds of awful things about ARA. Some of these people who fight against animal rights mix lies with the truth, they are very wise and they know how to brainwash people. Some of them make websites. Do you see how a meat-eater who wanted to become a Vegetarian, but ARA where rude to him when he asked for help and then he goes to a Website this is against animal rights, do you see how he could also start to hate animal right ? Can you just see those people who fight against animal rights telling him lies about how animal rights activist are rude people ect. ?
