Re: Do people consider you strange?

I also have have a habit of pacing for not particular reason I know a few people think I'm strange because I chew on stuff a lot, including my thumb Here's a blunt question: Why not stop doing such things? The stereotype that vegans are weird certainly doesn't help our cause. I think it's important...

What do you think Veganism and Atheism can teach people?

I think it would be nice to hear other people's opinions about the life lessons that people can learn from being vegan/atheist, the benefits of being vegan/atheist, and the overall impact that veganism/atheism has on the world.

Re: I would just like to vent on my inability to justify thi

Hi Max, welcome to the forum! Congrats on going vegan. As to being able to argue with carnists in real-time... well, that takes practice. Doing it on the internet will help, but you also have to get some face to face practice with serious debates. Knowing the arguments is only part of it. Being abl...

Re: I would just like to vent on my inability to justify thi

Also if The Vegan Atheist is reading this right now could you maybe make a resource that could teach people how to justify their vegan and atheist positions because that is something that I utterly suck at, and I often find myself at a loss for words when trying to justify myself.

Ahem, I would like to give one of The Vegan Atheist's most common assertions: We live in a first world country (at least most of us I hope) and can get our b12 from supplements.

Re: Do you look unhealthy?

Re: I would just like to vent on my inability to justify thi

I would also like to mention that I am taking a very rigorous course in high school that prevents me from making my own meals or from doing much of anything other than schoolwork or natural human processes without collapsing from exhaustion.

Hi everyone, I am currently attending high school and I have recently made the decision to become vegan, and I have continued this lifestyle for about three weeks so far. I feel very lucky to have supportive parents that will cook me vegan meals out of their own care for me and even buy me vitamin b...
