Hi, Im Kaity and im Australian teenager who has been vegetarian since i was six. Im on exchange in Japan and having ALOT of problems with people not understanding why I am vegetarian because it is against their culture i guess. My last host mother seemed to think that i became vegetarian just to inconvenience her and tried to sneak meat into my dinner many times... Looking for vegetarians to talk to who understand the concept of being vegetarian, lol...

Welcome to the boards!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/hi.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":hi:"><br><br><br><br>
Your situation seems frustrating, but just keep positive. I understand where you're coming from. I have a friend from Japan who came to America as a foreign exchange student, and explaining to her what vegetarianism was was quite a challenge.<br><br><br><br>
There are plenty of supportive people here, so you shouldn't have any problems finding people to talk to!<br><br><br><br>
Best wishes!

Welcome to VB, hopfully being a veg will become easier to you. Try not to mind to much of what others say about you/your decision to be vegetarian. Just keep it up and know your doing it for the animal's lives and not to make others happy.
