Seventeen magazine is surveying vegetarians for a future article. I filled it out, and I thought some people here would be interested too. For those of you not familiar with the magazine, it's a rather superficial mag for teen girls. Every once in a while they have a good article. Hopefully this will be one of them.

The survey is here.

I wrote something.


I actually noticed an article about vegetarianism in one of my little sister's teenage type magazines a while ago. It asked readers 'do you think it is wrong to eat meat?' and something surprising like 48% of them said 'yes'

That's great. I filled it in as well. I wrote a pretty long rant-ish letter actually. I'm so happy they're finally mentioning vegetariansm and veganism.

Geez,i hate seventeen magazine. Sometimes they do have some pretty interesting articles in there but i hate how they don't encourage people to be themselves. It's all about looking like celebrities to them.

ugh! that's what i mean! i shall now vent my anger on this keyboard.

ebvgqerjhk;bvfgenejk vefjkbvterbv tji;hn b vfdl' bn vfghor7777ufbvieruil;!!!!!!

i just don't like teen magazines. i read teen vogue for diff opinions/ideas for fashion (I'm a fashion freak :p), but you've really got to keep them in line or they'll take over your mind. o_O

and why are there so many mags that just... say the same thing? YM? 17? CosmoGirl? Sweet Sixteen? (ok, teen vogue too XD)

veg times is good though. the recipies are fun to make ^^

I agree. Commercialized, trend-setting mag

The annoying part is, I'm sure they will post responses such as "I'm a vegetarian and I don't eat meat except for chicken and fish!"

I am a 15 year old lacto-ovo vegetarian. That means that I eat dairy and eggs, but no fish or meat.

One day, exactly one year ago, I decided to quit eating meat. I don't know why I did it, it just felt right. Of course my family and friends didnt think I was going to last long, but I did! This is a lifelong choice for me. I know I will never eat meat again.

I am planning on going vegan once I move out and cook my own food. I dont think its right that an animal should have to die just because humans think it tastes good, when it isnt necessary for our bodies. I respect peoples choices, but unfortunately many people dont respect mine. I think a lot of that comes from lack of knowledge.

I eat the same as I used to, but instead of dead animals I use tofu and soymeat. I especially love pizza, haha. 98% of norways population eat meat, and I dont think thats going to change drastically. I think that there should definetly be stricter rules for keeping production animals, the conditions in which they live now is simply not acceptable.

I wrote that stuff. Gah.
