    So I went vegetarian nearly 4 years ago (I was 13) because it was kinda cool at the time and all my friends were, but now I'm turning 17 and for about 6 months I've been thinking I want to go back to eating meat. So how should I tell my parents I feel a bit embarrassed to tell them for some reason but I mean I know they won't care (actually they'll probably be relieved that they don't have te deal with it anymore) ahh plz help me! Thx ^.^

    Seriously? Because it was 'cool'? And now you want to start eating animals again?...... That's really sad...
    But just tell them, it's not a big deal. It's not like you're coming out to them as a lesbian lol

    I'm just that selfish. Sorry!

    I feel bad but at the same time, I'd rather not lower my quality of life by living on a restricted diet.

    WYour quality of life will be lower because you can't eat a hamburger.... But what about them? Their whole, life is frigging torture... It's your choice in the end but maybe you should give yourself a few more days to think about it

    Oh I'm just a random person, me.

    Like I said, I'm sorry, I'm too selfish. Acutally yes, the taste of meat has a unique satiation that I cannot get from anywhere else, which is hard to describe.

    Unfortunately it means the suffering of other animals, but it is what it is.

    I won't worsen my quality of life, our lives are hard enough don't you agree?

    Comparing to the lives of animals, or even our ancestors? Nah, I don't think they are to be honest.

    Uh yep, that about sums it up. Tbh I don't really give 2 shits if you think "that's really sad" because u know what makes me sad? Watching all of my family enjoy a nice BBQ together while I sit in the corner and nibble at a potato bc there's nothing for me to eat every week and the fact that I cause my own mother stress because she has to cook 2 meals every night..

    Edit: also you can spout all that ethical stuff at me if you want but I have a vegan friend who likes to regularly tell me all these things and send me photos/ videos of slaughter houses, so if that hasn't made me want to stay vegetarian you won't. (soz) and as a reference to your post before where you mistook the other person for me, like I said in my original post it's been 6 months so I don't think "a few more days" will change my decision.

    Rofl ok, it's all relative. Life is hard as it is, and it always was. I choose to eat meat, sorry but it is what it is, and it will demand will continue to exist indefinitely that's just the harsh truth of it.

    I understand it's immoral but like I said BEFORE (scroll up), I'm too selfish to give up my quality of life to reduce demand for a demerit good that will never be zero!
