you can't bypass vegetarianism to become vegan since all vegans are vegetarians, albeit to the extremeOriginally posted by epski
Depends on who you talk to, I suppose. I bypassed vegetarianism altogether, but for some that may be enough.
I knew somebody would bring that up, and I debated rewriting my post to take that into consideration, but... *shrugs*Originally posted by rigmarole

I can't help but wonder what motive could be bigger than personal health but then again, I realize that there are those here doing it for the animals and not for their health and they believe that this is the biggest motive of all (the animals). In a way, I agree and disagree at the same time. The biggest motive is the one that compells a person to go veg*n in the first place weather it's health, animals, or something else altogether. My motives aren't the same as someone else's and their motives may not be the same as mine, but they are both the "bigger motives" because they were the motives that drove each of us individually to strive for the place that we are at today, regardless of what we call it.Originally posted by 1vegan
If you do it for yourself (health) than it will most likely stop there.
If you have bigger motives than you most likely will shift to Vegan.
I've noticed that too, Tr. Seems that parents want their kids to eat all their veggies but yet they freak out when the kid wants to eat nothing but veggies, and grains, and fruit, and plant-based nutrients... what's up with that?Originally posted by Tofu rebel
there are a lot of people saying they can go vegan once they move...i guess that's quite sad really, that there's so much misinformation or uncomfortable feeling with veg*n children / teenagers.
Is this one of those things where you carefully source your dairy and egg products so as to avoid supporting cruelty? Not trying to stir anything up; just wanting to understand what is meant by ethical vegetarianism, as I consider veganism ethical vegetarianism.Originally posted by Fenguin
I became vegetarian for ethical reasons, but I don't have any intentions or desires about becoming vegan.
