I don't eat anything derived from an animal such as meat, dairy, eggs, and more. For example, marshmallows have gelatin and that comes from grind up cow spine. Sorry to gross you out, but it's the truth. I like vegan marshmallows though. And if your asking why I became vegan is because I am highly against speciesism. Speciesism is when people think humans are more superior to animals and that you can kill them off when they didn't harm you at all. I have pets and they never harmed me, so why harm them back? Another thing is that no cow, lamb, chicken, or fish has harmed me so why harm them? Each species have the right to live like all of us. We are family!
