    The worst part of head injuries are the ones you can't see. I know several people with TBIs. If you saw a photo you couldn't tell the difference. I'd respect them for not wearing one, just like you want them to respect you. Sounds like your one of those vegans who bring photos of animals being slaughtered to a dinner party. Don't eat meat, cool by me. Just don't come around shoving photos in my face about why everyone should be vegan too.

    I opt to keep some natural padding under my skin to stop the force of falls.

    Actually I would like the pictures to show the reason why I wear a helmet(I know I don't need to give them a reason) we are all 16 years and younger and its very irritating having this guy teasing us all the time but nevermind and thanks for the replys (by the way slidestop I love meat and the only time I would turn it down is if it was raw or human)

    Not saying you ARE a vegan but its the same things vegans do, make you feel bad for what your doing.

    I'd also like to really stress it NOT what you can see its the BRAIN INJURY that occurs with head trauma. You it can be anything from coma to memory loss. Just look up TBI's and you will find dozens of symptoms you can't see in a photo. Bumps and bruises and staples heal and go away. TBIs are FOR LIFE.

    You're getting vegan and vegetarian mixed up. Vegans don't eat animal products for any number of reasons. I try to eat vegan to keep my cholesterol down, but I still love a good steak once in a while, and a good, cold glass of milk still tastes good on occasion.

    Vegetarians don't eat animal products because of their belief system. I once dated a girl who was vegetarian. She said she couldn't eat something that was once living and running around or swimming in the sea. We only went out once. The vegetarians are the ones who put the guilt-trip on you.

    I've had plenty of vegans do the same. Vegan as in don't use a single animal product. In my experience I've found then "harsher" on those who don't have the values as them. For vegetarians I find them more less abrasive. If the use animal based products while while lecturing others on how bad eating animals is that would be awfully hippocritcial.

    I'm not saying all are like this, but I always seem to attract people who are a bit fanatical about this. Lol.

    What about respect for people who DON'T wear helmets? Sometimes I do and sometimes I don't. What I really get sick of is people attacking me for not wearing one...almost as if they wish I WOULD fall and split my head open...

    Actually vegans are way stricter than vegetarians - they wont eat anything that has any animal bi product in it either - that includes all dairy products like milk, cheeses, yoghurt & butter, eggs, gelatine etc and wont use anything derived from animals - such as leather whereas vegetarians only abstain from meat and quite often not related to a fondness of animals but simply because they find the idea of putting something 'dead' in their mouths repulsive but have often got no issues with other people who don't have an phobia about it. I personally find the thought of eating oysters, frogs legs, snails and horses gross but it doesnt worry me if someone else does
    What has this got to do with helmets by the way?
    Having a low cholesterol diet is very wise but not the same as being vegan as many vegetable oils are also high in cholesterol

    Sorry Jaydee.. I brought it up as an analogy, then someone tried to correct me. Shoving photos in your non-helmet wearing friends is just like a vegan shoving photos in your face of why you shouldn't eat meat (or use other animal products).

    No need to apologise!!!
    I do see lots of comparisons in anything like this - we humans are not a very tolerant species when it comes to opinions are we!!!
    If we feel strongly about something then we expect others to do the same. My DH & I disagree on something or another on a daily basis I think but we've still managed to stay happily married for 26 years and lived together for 2 years before that so it is possible to have differing opinions and still stay friends!!!
