Hello,<br><br><br><br>
Nice forums you have here.<br><br><br><br>
I'm a Scandinavian male who has been some kind of a (passive) supporter (anti-fur, anti-testing) of animal rights nearly my whole life, but I went lacto-oco-vegetarian at the age of 18 (if I remember correctly). It was this late for the reason that before that I really believed that cows lived great lives and were slaughtered only when they were so old they would have died anyway. (And I didn't understand to question the killing of animals for food.)<br><br><br><br>
I went lacto-ovo-vegetarian the same day I saw a PETA ad that had a picture of a plate with a dog sitting on it. For a long time I thought that veganism wasn't "required" in any ethical sense, although I appreciated vegans very much. But when I found out about the treatment of cows and hens, I went vegan almost straight away (maybe a few days or a week, I don't remember.) In some sense I'm not vegan currently though, since my vitamin supply has the D3-vitamin (I'm going to get a vegan vitamin source soon), but otherwise I'm vegan (and I don't use honey or silk either). (And I try not to kill insects.)<br><br><br><br>
I like thinking about things, and I'm especially fond of art (mainly music, films and literature). I really hope I can take part in some animal rights things in the future.

Welcome to the boards!! I have a strong interest in literature as well. Nice to have another lit fan on the boards.<br><br><br><br>
I, too, was kind of like you--was staunchly anti-fur while in high school but still ate meat. WTF? Anyhow, I eventually realized I was kidding myself and gave up the meat.

Welcome to the boards! And remember vegan isn't just about what you avoid, it's what you stand for. Speaking of that, I have to look for a vegan supplement after I finish my bottle.

Welcome Sevenseas! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"> I agree with epski, we like thinkers here! Without reading and thinking about what our culture and circumstances of birth have thrown in our face, all of us would probably be stuffing our faces with dead nonhuman animals whose circumstances of birth left them in hell for their relatively short lives.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":("> Sorry, enough negativity. Welcome.

Welcome to VB! I think that everyone here appreciates a thinker... This is the impression I've gotten after only my first three days here, mind, but I'm fairly confident that it is an accurate one. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">
