About French eating frogs it's actually true ...But as Ad Elie said it'sn not really commom, it's more popular in the ''higher class'' of society. Like you wouldn't see a middle class family eating frogs. However here, people also eat snails and well it's a bit more popular.
I turned vegetarian after a classmate told me she was vegetarian. I was 13 and I didn't know anything about it. It was a Wednesday and I googled ''videos vegetarian'' and saw awfull things. Seriously, I don't really cry but those images choqued me. So as soon I saw it, I turned into a vgR. My parents didn't take it really seriously. They thought it'd be temporary. Did your parents too ?
Then, one day, in February I woke up and told to myself : ''Why do you still drink milk and eat cheese ?'' I cheked on google to see how milk was dropped. Don't laugh but I did not know cows had to have a baby to get milk. Here we call them '' milk cow'' so I was like '' yeah they always have milk''... but actually no they don't. So when I discovered that I was involved in the murder of baby cows I stopped immediately.
Consequently, when I became vegetalian I told myself that leather was as horrible as dairy cow.
I already knew about products tested on animals, and I do not use any make-up or other things related so I didn't see the difference.
I also watched ''Hearthlings'', mamamia I cried all the tears in my body ! I watched it alone, then showed it to my parents. Did you watch it too ?
Well, now I'm trying to make people realise that we can perfectly live without being involved in animals slughter, which is not easy at ALL, because I live in an agricultural region where meat is really liked and vgr and most of all vegan are a really rare species haha
And what about you, how did you become vegetarien/lien/vegan ?
