What a dumb reason to be anything! Take this to another level: I have a car and I really love this car. It's beautiful, it sounds great. I'd hate for my car to get hurt, so I'll become a car-insurance salesman. I have a tree in my backyard. It's beautiful, has great leaves, etc. I would hate for someone to cut my tree down, or even weed-eat too close to it, so I'll become a tree-hugger. Being a vegan because you love your cat? Wow, Moby. Wow.
