I'm a vegetarian 2! :]
We had 2 disect a fish,think of it as rubber or plastic.
I told my friend tht i didnt want 2 do it so,she did it 4 me. I just helped with all of the questions and we got 20/20!

ya i'm a very strict vegetarian, 2 and i support u 100%!!!
by chicacherrycola on 12/4/2009 5:31:34 PM
I had to do that too. When we were in class dissecting a frog I told my teacher I didn't want to do it. I'm a vegetarian to and against it. My teacher told me it was mandatory. I was really upset, but needed an A so I got the frog and everything. When I was about to cut the frog she came over and I suddenly puked all over her clothes.
by cherry72 on 12/3/2009 9:50:05 PM
awesome girl even though im not a vegetarian that's cool you care that much i wont do dissection either
by havacrush123 on 11/23/2009 12:15:36 AM
OMG!!!! I admire you A TON!!!! You're sticking for what you believe in and you don't let anyone tell you otherwise!!!!!!! You'll get awesome respect for keeping with your belief!!!!!! Save the bunnies!!!!!! And don't let the grade bother you, Caitlin gave some great advice!!!!! Why don't you look into that online dissecting thing? Hope it helps!!!!!

I totally agree. I'm still a non-vegitarian but i think dissecting is right. I wish there were more people like this.

do not diesect a animal!!!!!!!!!!!! plus there not dead tell you cut them up, so dont kill animals plz!!!!!!!
by sans11 on 11/4/2009 6:34:23 PM
I'm a vegetarian (though I do think meat tastes good, but then I think about what it was before it was meat, and it tastes terrible) and I have to dissect animals this year since I'm taking biology. I'm really on the fence about whether to just suck it up and dissect or ask my teacher if I can write a paper instead. I was flipping through one of my mom's old college textbooks the other day (yes, I am that weird ) and I read an essay against animal experiments. I'm slowly slipping off the metaphorical fence...
by countrycutie97 on 11/4/2009 5:38:11 PM
im in 8th grade so i had 2 do 4 dissections last year. they're actually really fun and not as gross as they seem
by skijumper4life on 11/3/2009 5:31:53 PM
yuck!! i will have to do that to!!
by baby_girl567 on 11/3/2009 12:45:17 AM
me too! both me and my sister cryed when we had to dissect a squid at science camp... it seems to me kinda like the animal is being made fun of. theres a reason why we dont just randomly cut up dead people without consent. good for you!

that really sucks. but here's what you should do, talk to your teacher. maybe he/she will understand. talk with your parents first then the teaccherr.

ewwww I am a vegetarian also. Since i was 6! We had to disect owl dropping once and put together skeletons from bones in the droppings! nastyyyy!
by danster on 11/2/2009 8:16:36 PM
Most schools will make exceptions if you fell strongly about a cause. A close friend of mine is vegetarian and she asked if she could do an alternate assignment. After talking to the teacher, everything was cleared up. Teachers really do care and will help
by CoolCS on 11/2/2009 7:06:23 PM
its ok you tell the principal if you have o cause thats not right

by danceforhope on 11/2/2009 4:13:30 PM
I think you should have the choice to do labs... well actully you do but it's your grade. Why do people freak out so much about dissecting? you don't nessisarily have to watch. You have the right to leave the room but you don't then you complain cuz you decided to watch. The teachers can't just tell you that you have to do it and watch. Your parents have to sign a form saying what you can do, And also you can have your parents write a note to the teacher saying that you don't or can't do it and your teachers have to respect it. they can't make you do anything up against you will hard to beleive so tell your teachers that next time you have to dissect something.
by jellybean1998 on 11/1/2009 8:51:20 PM
i will not go thro that!! We have to do that to and i will def ask for other options. We had to disect a squid in 6th and i almost threw up. Eww.......
by heyheysisi on 11/1/2009 7:25:33 PM
I don't care if you have a boyfriend or girlfriend right now.
I don't care if you are a guy or a girl! Just read this, it will make a difference.
When she stares at your mouth, kiss her. When she pushes you or hits you cause she thinks she's stronger than you, grab her and don't let go.
When she starts cursing at you trying to act all tough, kiss her and tell her you love her.
When she's quiet, ask her whats wrong. When she ignores you, give her your attention. When she pulls away, pull her back.
When you see her at her worst, tell her she's beautiful. When she's scared, protect her.
When she teases you, tease her back and make her laugh. When she looks at you with doubt, back yourself up.
When she says that she loves you, she really does more than you can understand.
When she grabs at your hands, hold hers and play with her fingers.
When she bumps into you, bump into her back and make her laugh. When she tells you a secret, keep it safe and untold.
When she looks at you in your eyes, don't look away until she does. When she says it's over, she still wants you to be hers.
When she reposts this bulletin, she wants you to read it. Stay on the phone with her even if she's not saying anything.
When she's mad hug her tight and don't let go. When she says she's okay don't believe it, talk with her because 10 yrs later she'll remember you.
Call her at 12:00am on her birthday to tell her you love her. Treat her like she's all that matters to you. Stay up all night with her when she's sick.
Watch her favorite movie with her or her favorite show even if you think it's stupid. Give her the world. Let her wear your clothes.
When she's bored and sad, hang out with her. Let her know she's important. Kiss her in the pouring rain.
If you do post this in the next four minutes the one you love will : Call you. Kiss you. Love you. Text you. Guys post as: "I'd be this Boyfriend" Girls post as: "A real boyfriend" and if you do not re-post this within 4 minutes you'll have bad luck
by bananaad on 11/1/2009 5:05:26 PM
I would ask if you could do an alternate assignment. I know that my science teacher would let us write a paper about the procedure and where each part was located. It's a lot of work, but not gross, and a lot better than cutting up dead animals.
by DakotaGirl on 11/1/2009 4:15:07 PM
Ewww I dissected a worm and a frog back in seventh grade. It was terrible!!! Especially the frog. I made my friend cut it open and icky froggie juice squirted out!! Beware: Stay back when cutting them open!!
by turtles_in_africa on 11/1/2009 3:58:05 PM
YOU GO GIRL! im not a vegitarian, but great job for standing up for what you belive in. I had to do dissectons on the computer in 7th grade, and it was nuh-asty. Unless your teachers are incapable of thought, they should be willing to compromise!

by 4fact on 11/1/2009 12:45:50 AM
i dissected a fetal pig and it was actually really really interesting. i dont anyone should STOP dissection, but they should have to right now to do it. i'm fine with it though. i couldn't stand being a vegetarian....

I don't understand why we have to use real animals when it's already been done, and can be completed by using a cpu...I just straight up refused last year and the teacher was like "You still have to do the worksheet." So I did it without even looking at any type of animal. He was mad because I proved him and his teaching methods wrong. Haha, I win...
by 24/7_daydreamer on 10/30/2009 10:52:39 PM
YOU GO GIRL! (and don't come back, jk lol) I didn't really care for doing that though it was really gross...you rock for being brave and making a change!
by i_luv_devin on 10/30/2009 9:14:40 PM
i'm not a vegitarian but i heard that there r some computer programs that use fake frogs so u don't dissect a real one.
by PicturePerfect on 10/30/2009 7:34:10 PM
omg u dont eat meat! WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU! I LOVEEEEEE ME SOME MEAT! AND DISSECTING IS SO MUCH FUN BUT I UNDERSTAND YOUR PROBLEM STINKS TO BE YOU!
by girlslifex3 on 10/30/2009 6:39:48 PM
Hi im a meat supporter you may have seen glamgirlteen posting comments about going "veggie"
well i bet im not the only meat supporter out there so im here you dont have to be vegitarian to be healthy in fact when you go vegetarian you can get sick so she says it will make you healthy no neccasarily. so check glamgirls profile (till mines visible lol) leave her a comment expressing your opinion (hopefully ony u meat lover read this)and remember GO MEAT! PS I do have pets and i live on a farm so im not a n animal hater
by MeatLoversUSA on 10/30/2009 5:36:07 PM
last year i dissected worms...it was really fun acually...im not trying to sound cruel or anything, i mean i love animals (i own a dog, cat, a few fish, and im dying to own a horse but we dont have enough money,) but i really want to be a doctor and it was very educational. Also everything that we dissect is dead of natural causes before we dissect them wich helps the conscience a lot!
by soccerstar17 on 10/30/2009 4:36:11 PM
U lucky... that's all u have 2 dissect! I have 2 do a frog, flower, and an EYEBALL!!! A girl in the front of my class was laughing w her mouth open, and the teach cut it open and it squirted in her mouth!!! Be considered lucky! I'm a veggie 2! I do PETA, they hav cool shirts that say "Cut class, not frogs!" It's very cool!
by Moon Dance on 10/30/2009 3:50:41 PM
i've disected a frog before. i want to be a vet and it's really interesting to dissect a frog. i was with one of my friends who wants to be a doctor and we were the only two girls who could stay and dissect the frog for the entire time. some of the guys even had to leave because they couldn't handle it. i love animals, but i didn't have a problem dissecting the frog because it will help me learn about the animals and help me learn how to help them, but i respect your beliefs and get where you're coming from.
by kenzie801 on 10/30/2009 12:54:40 PM
ugh, not fun. i mean a starfish?! wow. last year we had to dissect a sheep's eye. it turned out it wasn't as bad as i thought it would be
by allhearts33 on 10/30/2009 11:41:43 AM
ughh, i know. im a vegaarian too and i cant stand the thought of dissecting it. i asked my mom about it and she said i have to, but im not. i dont understand why we have to use dead frogs. its just... wrong? were in 6th grade and we'll probably have to disect a frog... im not showing up that day. nope.
by SierraRylee on 10/30/2009 8:58:14 AM
we have to disect feetle pigs in my school
by wednesday1408 on 10/29/2009 10:00:34 PM
im in 7th grade and my teacher told us we didnt have to dissect the frog if we didnt want to she said there was some kind of online site that u could dissect the frog online instead of actually having to use a scalple.im with ya i cant dissect that poor creature!!!
by moon'n'starsgirl on 10/29/2009 9:52:40 PM
You will probably have a lab partner and it's not like you have to eat it. You can do it and you can always get help from your teacher.

by horsinaround412 on 10/29/2009 6:52:10 PM
I was supposed to do it last year too. But I was sick the day of dissection, and my partners just put my name on the worksheet too, and I got credit! Hahahaha.
by fishlover926 on 10/29/2009 6:28:42 PM
thats o ironc we read an article in class today about a lady against dissection! but if u didnt no (and im not trying to state the obvios and i didnt spell that rite) but the animals r already dead if that haelps a little. also i kind of want to go vegetarian but i dont hav the determination and am not willing to giv up stake or meat so u hhav lots odetermination! good luck on your problem

I have the same problemo I'm a vegtarian too and this year we have to dissect a frog and either in college or high school (i can't remember which) we have to dissect a CAT. There is NO WAY i'm doing that, but I don't know how i'm going to get out of that because those teachers are tougher then middle school teachers.
by barbie2151 on 10/29/2009 5:47:38 PM
last year we had to dissect a frog and it was the MOST disgusting thing i've ever done! well my partner actually did the dissecting and i just watched in disgust but i HATED it. and every time he held up a part he took out i thought he was going to throw it at me so i ducked. and the formeldahyde scent gave me a headache but i still got a B

by GreenEyedBeauty12 on 10/29/2009 4:43:31 PM
Way cool you are so dedicated! Unfortunately, it is mandatory. Perhaps you could just ask the teacher in private if you could do something else? Like the computer tech dissecting. I would say some other things I would like to point out, but I won't. Why waste time?
by lasagna on 10/29/2009 4:34:23 PM
We had to dissect a worm, fish, squid, frog, and pig's heart in science. Most girls don't do it because they think it's gross, and some just really love animals so they don't have to do it if they don't want to. Even though I love animals, I find it interesting because it really helps me learn. Besides, if I want to be like a marine biologist or something, I'll have to do stuff like that. For me, it's just part of life. You get used to it.
