I'm trying to be as animal friendly as possible damnit. Why is this so hard/confusing?!

P.S. My apologies for this not being about food, but I know that the community in this section is dedicated to giving animals rights. And can you believe that one of the suggested sections was Health > Diseases & Conditions > STDs? I think Yahoo is trying to tell me something... I just can't put my finger on it. Hmm.
