Your comments are well said.
Some people are raised to have unlimited compassion for others, some are not. It's the primary failing of our species.
We've all heard countless people say, "I love fish", without realizing the fault in their statement.
More and more people are moving toward the vegan diet, which is amazing when you consider the massive propaganda we get from the meat and dairy industries.
Of course most humans today do not have many options. People who live day to day in extreme poverty or war zones are lucky to find anything to eat at all.
But be proud of your choice, stick with it and teach by example!
Posted by Kayales_XC17 at 05/08/15 23:50:28Hey! Nice to meet you. I'm also new here.
I'm currently transitioning to a fully vegetarian diet after doing Meatless Friday for about three years. The book "Why We Love Dogs, Eat Pigs, and Wear Cows" planted the seed of being veg curious in my mind. Then I got together with a friend who is vegan and watched the documentaries "Earthlings" and "Food Inc." Maybe your boyfriend and anyone else you think could be potentially veg curious will benefit from checking out any of those resources.
Also, I haven't read this book yet because I just ordered it from Amazon today, but I've heard really good things about "No Meat Athlete."
