    Well I can give my perspective to a degree. When I was 13/14 I was doing a lot of online research and honestly was naive because at that age you're less likely to think critically and logically - a lot of the time you're running of pure emotion. Or at least I was. I think a lot of teenagers are egotistical, want to be different but also enjoy a sense of achievement and the feeling of making a difference and standing up for something. I was incredibly passionate for animal rights - but in a mislead way. In my case I became very zealous and over the top, taking it to an extreme level. I don't necessarily blame veganism itself, there are many vegans who dont impose their choice on others and try to convert people to their way of life. But I think at a young age you can get caught up in dogma so easily and I got involved in protest groups, in real life and online, so had many influences and honestly got stuck in a bubble, almost isolating myself from the entire world. Then it all came to an end when I decided I didn't want to be vegan anymore...

    There are some that are doing it because of genuine personal conviction which is fair enough, but most are doing it because wokeness has become the new religion, and being vegan for lefties is like the purchasing of indulgences of the Catholic Church in the Middle Ages. They think it will give you a free pass to woke enlightenment. But most of them will snap out of it once they get into the real world

    Because teens are still trying to figure out who they are, they're more likely to be guilble and fall into manipulative cults. Brainwashed vegans can influence them easier if they lack any nutritional knowledge all together
