Hi!

I'm a 28yr old female living in NYC.

I've been browsing this site for several days and am so glad that i've now become a part of you!

Loving animals is one of my biggest passions in life and I get so sad and miserable and angry being surrounded by these people who have no compassion for them whatsoever, who'd tell me that being vegetarian for an animal rights reason is ridiculous.

I'm looking forward to getting to know you all!

Hi Alice!

"Loving animals is one of my biggest passions in life and I get so sad and miserable and angry being surrounded by these people who have no compassion for them whatsoever, who'd tell me that being vegetarian for an animal rights reason is ridiculous."

I know how you feel, I also really love animals, and I sometimes have to put up with these people, too. It's best to try not to let them get you down too much.

Hi, Jezebelalice! Welcome! I know exactly how you feel; I'm quite a fan of animals myself.
Being a vegetarian for the sake of animals isn't ridiculous. It's courageous and compassionate. Don't ever let anyone make you feel bad because of it! Glad to meet you.

Hi Alice!

I'm new here too but I thought I'd say "hi" anyway. Don't worry, I'm never gonna tell you that being a vegetarian for animal rights is ridiculous, I'd be a hippocryte and a liar if I did! Do you have many/any vegetarian friends?

Welcome. The reason they tell you that being a vegetarian for an animal rights reason is ridiculous is because they know deep down that it is NOT ridiculous!

Hi Alice,

I'm also new to VB. That's lame that people give you a hard time. I guess I must hang out with a lot of vegetarians or at least it seems that way sometimes. anyhow, welcome.
