    This article was just a little rude. Don't you think?

    Yeah, that was kinda rude about the gelatin thing :\ Some people don't know this stuff. It was really good and informational, but not all people are so [i]graciously[/i] educated as you are. You needn't be insulting them.

    [b]Kmart.[/b], [b]Shane McCutcheon[/b], & [b]erin.whatserface.[/b]: My girlfriend is vegetarian. This article is consistent with her diet and lifestyle. She doesn't eat or use anything for which animals died, e.g. she doesn't use leather or silk -- silkworms are boiled alive to make most silk, IIRC -- but she does occasionally use rough silk, which they don't kill silkworms to make.

    Vegans, OTOH, use nothing that has any animal-derived components -- so in addition to vegetarian dietary and lifestyle restrictions, they use no dairy, eggs, honey, rough silk, certain wines -- just off the top of my head.

    "I hate that I eat way less junk food than most vegitarians I know. Just because you don't eat meat doesn't mean you should eat a bag of chips instead.
    - Finito-Neato"
    Oh dear. I eat way too much junk food and I know it. :/ Oh well, never said I'd do this to be healthy, haha.

    I agree with the others, towards the end it was a little pushy. Still a very, very informative article, though. I've been trying very hard to check labels and avoid gelatin; I don't eat PopTarts anymore, nor skittles or Jell-O brand gelatin, and I've always known that companies sneak meat into soups.

    I think the fast-food fries part is common sense; the grease that they're fried in is from animals, right? I'm terrible for that, the past two years that's all I'll eat when I go to McDonald's. Sigh, I'll try to avoid them now -- but I don't see how they're made of cow feet...why the feet, specifically?

    This was so helpful. MANY THANK-YOUS! Love, peace, and veggies. *dons hippie bandanna and does a merry little jig*

    By the way, for people who've been debating whether or not this is vegetarian or vegan, I just want to say that I'm a vegetarian (I eat dairy, eggs, etc. but no meat, chicken, or seafood) and I avoid gelatin.

    I guess what I'm getting at is: being a vegg is different for everyone. I know realistically that saying 'no' to meat isn't saving a million animal lives - as such, accidentally eating gelatin now and then doesn't make me cry and bash my head into pointy things. However, trying my best to avoid it [b]is[/b] standing up for something that I think is environmentally- and animal-friendly.

    But, hey, different strokes for different folks. ^.^ And thanks for handy reference.

    If God didn't want us eating meat, he would have made the animals run faster. Or so delicious D:

    I tried becoming a vegetarian.
    I failed.
    I missed my carnivorous ways D:

    The article was good until the end. Then you were just being horribly pretentious.

    I hate that I eat way less junk food than most vegitarians I know. Just because you don't eat meat doesn't mean you should eat a bag of chips instead.

    [b]pepperjack_cat[/b] - No, vegetarians choose not to eat [i]meat.[/i]
    [i]Vegans[/i] choose not to eat foods/use products "in which the animal had to die to be made."

    Huge difference. :)

    Like other's have said... isn't this more of a vegan diet? Vegetarian is just not eating meat it's vegan that stray from all animal products. Anyway, accidentally eating something with animal flesh in it isn't exactly a crime, it's an honest mistake, and it's only the vegetarians looking down on each other. People who aren't don't really care.

    Very informative. It was a bit pushy in some cases but that doesn't bother me that much but for others who actually are trying to veg and didn't know might find that hurtful.
    Like others, I would like to see an article about food substitutes beyond the tofu thing.

    Actually, I think in the UK, McDonald's fries are vegetarian.
    Or at least that's what it said on their website last time I checked? O_O

    But still, very informative article, thank you! :)

    This article should be directed toward vegans, more than anything.

    AND:
    "If you consume gelatin, please don't call yourself a vegetarian."
    Is completely rude.
