Well I hope my English won't be too bad, it's not so easy writing about that in a foreign language...

When I was maybe about 12 years old I started thinking why I do eat meat. But I didn't know how to explain my parents I want to become a vegetarian so I just ate less and less meat. And now I stopped eating meat at all. Maybe for 2 years now. And I don't feel different, it's just normal for me being a vegetarian. I can't imagine eating meat and I think even if I had to eat it, I couldn't. I think I watched too many of those videos about factory farming etc. Maybe I will try to become a vegan when I don't live at my parents' house any longer (I think they wouldn't accept that) I would really love to be but I'm not sure if I can be so consequent...

I think it's just totally mad to kill for having a nice food. There are some animals who can't live without meat but human beings can live without. But that's not the biggest problem I have with eating meat. I think even worse is how those animals have to live and die. I just can't imagine how humankind can be so cruel. And I think another reason why I'm vegetarian is: If I ate meat, I don't want to make a difference between different animals because killing a horse is not crueler than killing a pig. And I think I just couldn't eat horses or rabbits for example. And I think this is kind of racist: My pets at home live in quite big cages (they can never be big enough and keeping animals as pets isn't fair, too. But I only have animals from the animal shelter --> pets nobody wants to have) but it is ok if pigs or cows are killed for me. That's weird. Same as I can't watch animals being killed. So why should I eat them? Just because I look away the animals don't have to suffer less...
I hope that's understandable...

I don't want to persuade anybody to become a vegetarian, but I want people to know how their meat is produced. When they can eat it I'm sure they also can see how it's made...
