    I am a vegan, and I love ALL animals including insects. I want to do my upmost best to fight animal cruelty and so on. But I am also a conservative christian and I feel if I am, I can’t be part of PETA. I wanted to join peta2 because I’ve never had a friend before and I wanted to help animals. My family is poor, I have aspergers syndrome, and I have no friends. I’ve been bullied by everybody at my school and they make fun of me for being a christian and a vegan. Nobody likes me, and nobody has ever invited me to a party or anything. My relatives and people at my church have snubbed me for loving animals, but also other vegans I’ve known, like my cousin, won’t accept me because I’m a christian and a republican. Nobody will accept me. But I also feel that I shouldn’t be part of peta2. Can I still be part of peta2?

    I know what it’s like to have relatives that aren’t very understanding too. Stay strong, and don’t listen to what others say to you–it’s your life and you deserve to do what you think is right! I think being a vegan makes you more Christ-like than most christians, since you have chosen to do no harm to God’s beautiful creatures. You should be proud of yourself, hun!!!! Stay strong! :)

    Well duh ! Of course you can, now if you are being serious about everything you just wrote I am christian I believe in God & I love animals to death !! & If we were close to each other I would def. hang out with you & be friends !! I’ve learned that even though it’s hard, I do not care what people say behind my back or to my face about what I believe I have learned to handle it ! & live life the way I feel is best ! & I hope that you get the courage to do the same because when you do you will feel better !!!

    I don’t think your religion matters
    It’s whether you want to be here or not
    Peta has a great resources and a great support system.

I love fast food, glass blowing, making solar sensitive paper prints, ceramics, making friendship bracelets, tie dying, decorating my room, shopping online and off (but mostly online), cuddling with my Cockapoo named Mickey,eating candy, making things, fashion, & going to the mall. I can’t cook to save my life. I enjoy Netflix, crafts, & making people laugh, I am generous and enjoy Oldies. Green is my favourite colour. I hate the colour orange. Halloween is my favourite holiday. I’m addicted to playing Kardashian on my Ipod and using Instagram. I want to travel a ton one day, learn German, drive and lifeguard, and be an elementary school art teacher. I collect international stamps, coins, postcards, Betty and Veronica Archie Comics, kawaii stuff, cameos, *stickers*, and trinkets (I pick things off the ground, I’m a klepto like that). I write in a diary everyday. I hate candy corn. I have two cactus plants. I have Facebook, Snapchat, Tumblr and Instagram, so HMU if you want my usernames. I believe loosely in karma, fate, kismet, déjà vu, reincarnation, dreams, destiny & fate. I love for stores: Etsy, Hot Topic, Francesca's, & Claire’s. People say I look like Brenton Thwaites.

What I expect from a pen pal is LGBTQA respect and a consistency to correspondence. But I seriously love meeting new people with different interests and writing to them.

    Not exactly a vegetarian, but am very into animal rights. I am slowly getting into trying vegan/vegetarian meals and might make the switch once I get used to the recipes!
