It’s actually an embarrassment to vegetarianism that this post is here. If you don’t know your own morals and ethics how could we? So stupid

i mean dude, do what’s best for you, if you feel bad thinking of dissecting a squid, don’t do it. If you don’t feel bad, do it. If you do it then regret it, just know what the squid had a good life and hold a funeral (I’m being serious, have a one minute silence, it sounds like I’m joking but trust me I’m not)

I'm curious how dissecting an already dead squid is supposedly ethically worse that dissecting and eating a living plant :P

if you care about your principles you have to draw red lines. where you draw them is up to you.

Surely, that's up to you to decide? Not every vegetarian is the same.

I'm sure there's a vegetarian bible somewhere that you can consult. It might say somewhere in the book of Cabbage.

Or you could just make your own decision based on how you feel. That's probably easier. Every vegetarian has their own values, we can't tell you how to feel.

What has social media driven the world to when people cannot form their own personal moral code without being told by others what it should be, lest their personal code isn't the same as everyone else's.

One wonders how far across the room the OP's brain particles will reach when it explodes trying to compute and reconcile the different answers that are posted.

It's OK. The capitalization is amiss. It should read MonKeyBananaPie - a delicacy somewhat like Key Lime Pie, but French and using different fruit.

Seems OP got into being a veggie to join the cool krew of veggies rather than out of moral conviction, and consequently has no idea of his/her own moral ideas and wants to know the rules of Veggie Klub. Can OP rightly post sanctimonious comments to meat eaters, per the formal rules of veggie kamp, if they deny the most sacred rule: don't cut up dead squid for educational purposes? A most important question.

Don’t be rude. Many vegetarians do it because they don’t like meat, or think they’re cutting out all animal cruelty in their lives (but don’t know about the disgusting dairy and egg industry treatment) or are doing it for health

I’m a vegetarian trying to go vegan (my parents won’t let me and I can’t ethically eat dairy I just can’t) and if it’s for ethical reasons I assume you’d be passionate about animals. But many of my vegetarian friends ‘cheat’ and eat meat occasionally so it really depends how much you care about animal cruelty

I have recently become vegetarian. At my school, we have an opportunity to dissect a squid, and I'm not sure if it goes against the morals and ethics that I hold due to being vegetarian. Before becoming vegetarian, I dissected a heart and a kidney, and if I was offered the opportunity to do it again, I might accept. The animal was killed to be eaten, and those organs are the 'leftovers', so it is surely at least better not to waste parts of the animal. However, this will be a whole squid. A squid that was killed to be dissected. So I'm not sure if dissecting it goes against my moral and ethical grounds. Help!
As a member of the Order of Green Veggienation I remind you of the Azboravo Accords of 1752 Section (iii), Clause (D) which categorically approves any (or whole) dissection of cephalopods regardless of its vitality

Vegetarianism isn't a religion. I'm a vegetarian too and when considering whether or not I was going to do the heart dissection at school I decided to do it since it was necessary for the practical endorsement of my course. It's really a case of how you feel about it. In my case, dissecting isn't the same as eating an animal, and so I just went ahead and did it.

Absolutely true...
if vegans love animals so much then why do they eat their food??
Absolutely false... animals feel pain and emotions, plants don’t
