I'm not Theravedan, nor strictly any other tradition in particular, so I haven't voted.
I am vegan and was already vegan before becoming interested in buddhism.
I suffer a peculiar mental disorder that prevents me from seeing meat without simultaneoulsy seeing the cycle of suffering it causes and gives me a strong desire for all sentient beings to be free of it.
My initial attraction to buddhism, was by my interpretation, that being able to see dependant arisings of suffering and wishing all sentient beings to be free of them is not a peculiar mental disorder.
