"I completely agree with you. I mean, on top of all the health and environmental reasons for not eating animals, I just don't see the point in causing that amount of suffering when it's totally unnecessary. I've been vegan…"

"Am I bad for not caring at all about how much a cow suffers until it's put down ? To me, life has no value in itself. Killing a living being means nothing to me. The only reason why I believe murder should not be tolerated among humans, is…"

"Hey, I think this is interesting, in that it shows that everyones bodies are different. While one person might be able to process iron from spinach, another might only be able to process it from meat. Diet isn't a one-size fits all thing and we…"

"So a cow's pain doesn't count? Despite the fact it probably feel as much pain as you when it's hurt,  and certainly feels emotions like loss, and joy, and they feel accomplishment when they solve problems. Would it be right to…"

"My stance on pets is probably not as extreme as others. It depends on the treatment and the mindset of the owner. Owning a pet is a massive responsibility (I don't have any myself, despite my views on animals, I wouldn't class…"

"Lauren, I want to start by thanking you for being the kind of person I don't mind discussing animal rights with, you're not trying to ridicule my beliefs, or justify your diet because you feel threatened by mine. And you've done your…"

"I think your stance as an animal liberationist might be more of a minority view than vegetarianism.  I'm honestly curious because I've not really gotten a chance to talk to many die-hard liberationists (most stop at vegetarianism) to…"

"Ash - I find your argument interesting and can definitely see where you're coming from. But I can't say that I totally agree.   Singer's argument is that we should take all suffering into consideration when making…"

"I brought up this idea to another poster, instead of bringing the consumption of meat down, change the form.  Processed meat makes up a huge part of the market, and processed meat is where the demand comes from (and if we want to bring this up,…"

"The only problem I have with this is that the soy market has exploded in recent years, causing problems with the soy plant in itself.  Soy (a main constituent of artificial meats) is currently so over-genetically engineered that scientists are…"

"And that applies across the board does it? It's tasty, so I eat it? Unfortunately for you, there are a few problems there:  If children were tasty, would that rationalise eating them? what about your household pets? Getting jumped up on…"

"Not at all. The difference is that other animals that are predators don't and as far as we're aware, can't, rationalize how they eat. Humans can. We rationalize our decisions, and I don't think it's possible to rationalize…"
