  1. Re: Why do you think omnivores don't turn vegans sooner ?

    Ah...but I don't respect it either. I'm just saying that whether we respect it or not makes no difference.

    I suppose the confusion (yes, I am confused!) arises because I want to live in a world...
  2. Re: Why do you think omnivores don't turn vegans sooner ?

    No one can stop you having your opinion....and we pretty much all have to accept we can't stop omni opinions either. You don't respect it and that's up to you. It does'nt offend me. We are all free...

    Yup...I'm in agreement too.

    Whether we agree or not some people believe that humans are not designed to eat meat/eggs/dairy. Some say we are. Some say we can choose whether or not to eat these...
