    A lot of people in my school are attempting to change their lifestyles to fit a vegan one. I have begun to see a trend in this and like with any regular trend feel pressured to follow it and my friends agree with me. Don't get me wrong, this just shows how the media could be used for good but i just can't ignore the claims by celebrities like Miley Cirus who says they are vegan but has been spotted wearing animal skin and feather clothes.

    I wouldn't become vegan even if it meant breaking the law.

    I think some people are doing it as a trend- because they love superiority complex and because vegan youtubers like freeleethebananagirl bang on about how lean you can get.

    Only true ethical vegans will stick to it long term because the missing meat and cheese ting will be too much for the vain / doing it to be cool kids.

    Probably the unnatural progression from the hipster plague.

    Hopefully all the effeminate hippies will stop eating meat, demand will fall and all of us real humans will get loads of cheap meat

    I suppose, just this once, the 12 year old kids on Call of Duty are correct

    I do love the meat

    Oh durian rider ? They're both so jacked up and high on carbs all the time.

    I like them (durian and freeleethebananagirl) but they can get hugely overbearing. She was key in me becoming vegan but once I transitioned I literally couldn't face watching it because I do not wish to be a militant and in your face vegan who calls meat eaters murderers etc.

    They should also be careful - they advise girls to eat like 3000kcal + a day in mostly sugary carbs and that is only really a good idea if you do as much exercise (specifically cycling) as they do.

    Me and my dog (read the thread) are both vegan albeit only on day 3 of the 30-day challenge. I'm not craving meat, I feel super energetic and alert. I think people who eat animals are immoral and downright unethical.

    Before you use animal milk for your cereal picture a newborn calf being ripped away from it's mother so that it doesn't drink YOUR milk.

    The chicken I had from KFC could have had 3 mental breakdowns and a broken leg; I'd still eat it.

    Haha yeah I agree, some of his videos are just him repeating the same point over and over for 20 minutes. At least by the time I'm done watching I'll never forget the message :lol:

    Dude's an absolute beast though, wish I had his stamina :moon:

    I care so much about animals that I want to hug them forever inside my belly.

    You just call them pus-filled and diseased... for shame

    but don't you think its unfair to criticize what humans have been doing for a long time? Isn't it a decision you make?
