I am somewhere in between.
I love animals, I do not want to see an animal hurt or abused. I do not want to have to think about where my food comes from and has it been neglected or tortured. Therefore in my opinion I am a vegan. I came to veganism through my disease. I have been told I am not a true vegan because I did not become this way on my own merit. I say that is ridiculous.
In my opinion it really does not matter how we all got here, it just matters that we are here and that we stick together, because there are alot of big bad companies out there trying to undo the changes we are making.Here is where I either make sense or piss people off....
You all know I pull no punches and that I say what comes from my heart, so I hope that no one takes this personally, as I am not attacking anyone of you, just stating facts.
I can understand people in the 1950's not knowing about health, they were led around like cattle back then, but today with everything we know and everything we have seen over the past decade as far as disease is concerned, WE should be the healthiest people on the planet.
We are all different. We all make our own choices in this life. Let us not step away from each other and turn our backs on our own KIND. We are all in this together.
I do not want to separate the classes of vegetarians. I also do not want to call myself something different so I can appease a set group of people.
