Hello! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"> I'm a dedicated lacto-vegetarian who eat seafood once in a while and I'm strongly opposed to factory farming and fur farming. I look forward to a future society where humans and animals can both live in peace.<br><br>
In the meantime, I'm going to go cook myself some lovely broccoli salad with some olives and cheese...

Do you plan on giving up the sea-animals? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

Maybe. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p"><br><br>
I did a lot of research, and certain sea animals like oysters cannot feel pain, so they behave more like a plant than an animal. But they smell soooo nasty, so often I leave the seafood alone and go for my veggies instead. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

I'm sorry but this board is for vegetarians only =/<br><br><br>
I'd hate to think you edited your post just so you could stick around, but still no intentions of changing. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":(">

Maybe I didn't want to be too precise. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p"><br><br>
Look, 99.999% of the time I stay away from meat. If you don't like my posts then you're perfectly welcome not to reply to them <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">.

I doesn't have much to do with not welcoming your posts, which I do, it's always lovely to have new people excited to be here, it's simply the rules of the board. Especially since the large part that sea animals play in the health of the ocean, I do personally feel that their life is worth every bit that of every other animals, if not more considering the peril of the seas. If it would help you on your transition, maybe research their place in the balance of the seas rather than whether or not you think they feel pain.

ummm... I don't know what to say, but thanks?<br><br>
I could say that you can make a similar argument like that about every single plant species in the world, but if that's what the rules dictate then for sure, I'll completely remove sea animals from my diet. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br>
Cheers. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

A vegetarian is someone who always refrains from meat. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"> The joining agreement clearly states that you must be vegetarian or seriously transitioning into being completely vegetarian in order to be a member here. Fish is meat; these are just the rules. Vegetarians don't eat animals, which sea animals are just as much as you and me are. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br><br>
If you're removing sea animals from your diet, then that's great! I know there are a lot of misinformed people that come here that are confused about fish based on what they've heard or been told, but when they care about animals and completely stop eating them, it's always nice to have a new member!

You could say that for every plant species, but you would be wrong. Most of the plant agriculture is fed to livestock animals. Additionally, we can always replant more seeds, when you destroy an underwater ecosystem, it pretty much just dies. As we farm plants, and capture most sea animals from the ocean, it's an entirely different and exciting argument, which I would love to discuss with you if you like!

Hello there Essence of Life. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/hi.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":hi:"><br><br>
This is not just a vegetarian forum, it's a forum for vegetarians, and people who are working towards being a vegetarian. Vegetarians don't eat fish or crustaceans or molluscs or anything else in the animal kingdom. If you're planning on removing aquatic animals from your diet, you are more than welcome to stay here on VB, but if not, I'm afraid this forum isn't right for you.
