Well, I saw a video on the Internet some time ago that almost convinced me to become a vegetarian.  However, it was a different story with my honey 'cause he really likes his meat (no pun intended ;D) and won't give it up!  So, I am condemned to being a carnivore. >:(

You can be the AM token transexual, and I'll be the AM token transvestite.   :D

There's all sorts of people here, and we are a family no matter who we are.  We're in this together.

Jaz, both of my sons are vegeterians. (Where did I go WRONG? LOL) Me? I don't eat a lot of meat but every once in a great while I need a nice thick, juicy steak.

It's good that you spoke up about being a tran. Life is too short and challenging enough without dragging around the burden of not being openly who and whatever you are. 

I'm glad that you've started to make your own place here with your comments so I'll just say, WELCOME!

Diversity is good and having a new member that looks like a sophisticated popstar is even better! The other day I had a vegetarian pizza...is that close to become a vegeterian?  ;D
