So last night I was thinking about how I have intentional slipups from time to time. I don't blatently order a hamburger or chicken nuggets, but for example I ordered potato soup at a restaurant and it a few bacon bits in it, and I still ate it


So I started to look at pictures, to get myself back into vegetarian-mode. I started to cry and I wanted to throw up. I had to stop looking at the pictures of those poor helpless animals. I saw a picture of a cow with a broken neck and I started to hate humans...how could they let those poor animals suffer??? How are these things legal??

How could you eat meat?

I know a lot of people think being veg*n is weird. "I eat meat because it tastes good!" Well how can you eat meat knowing that this is going on?

That the hamburger you're eating is cow flesh, and that cow lived a very painful life.

I find is crazy how people think WE'RE weird for NOT eating meat. When I see people eating animal flesh in the cafeteria, I feel sick, and I get disgusted with them...

Sorry, I just had to rant to someone. I don't know any other vegetarians AT ALL so it's nice to have somewhere to come to "talk" about it.

Didn't it feel good to get all that out?


I think the same thing a lot, too. When I'm outside, walking by McDonald's on my way to class, I see all the people chowing down on cheeseburgers, chicken nuggets, and fish sandwiches while their kids have a "Happy" Meal. It makes me want to cry, scream, and throw something, all at the same time. I just want to yell, "WHAT ARE YOU DOING? Look at what you're putting into your mouth you !&%[email protected]#" They don't get it. And you're right - it is sickening and disgusting.

But then I realize that some of those people are never going to change. Some of them will never think about what they are eating. So after walking by McDonald's, I take a deep breath and hope that those people open their eyes someday.

ETA: Please remember these things the next time you want to "intentionally slip-up":

Remember the pictures. Remember your compassion.

Psst...whoever changed the title of the thread, and added (intentional slipups) to the title...the thread isn't about intentional slipups.

It's about meat eaters.
