[hr]Hey, I'm Victoria. New to the message boards. I'm 13, and I decided to go veg a couple of years ago when I watched PETA's "Meet Your Meat" video. I'm vegetarian, not vegan, so I consume products with dairy and eggs (although I do tend to avoid eggs, because they just taste gross). I do intend to give up all animal products someday, it just tends to be rather difficult when your family isn't the most supportive and you live in an area that doesn't sell many vegan-friendly products.



So, hello, everyone! Hope to become well-aquainted with all of you!



-Victoria



p.s. I misspelled my name in the username, so you'll have to excuse me. >.<

Welcome to VB. What did your parents say when you decided to go veg?

My usual answer: I have never heard a convincing reason to eat meat.

I remember telling my mom, "It's probably going to sound silly at my age (keep in mind, I was 11), but I'm seriously considering going vegetarian." And my mom said, " It doesn't sound silly... Farms are pretty brutal." So I asked why she didn;t go veg too, and she said, "Psh, meat tastes too good."



My family didn't really think I could do it. My mom was just trying to be "supportive" and not put me down. My brother doubted I'd last two weeks. But here I am, two years meat-free.
