EDIT: First off, WOW. This is a ton of responses and I honestly thought I'd get like, 3 nopes and this thread would die. So thanks for that guys! I posted this thread because I do not have full control over my diet (parents are the best, amirite?) And these were all of the excuses my mother gave me to NOT be "allowed" to not eat meat. In recent months, we have still been compromising. Thank you all for the (rather resounding) input you have given.


So I am NOT trying to start an argument and I'm just wondering for you guys:
-You personally know the person raising the cattle
-Youve seen the animals and their enviroment
-You know what they eat
-They are put to sleep before transport and sleeping during
-You have seen the locker and ethics kept there
-The meat is minimally processed
-There is no waste- all of the animal is eaten/used
Would you eat it then??

No, for health reasons

Also I've gone without meat for so long that it would upset my stomach and I'd be sick

No. Killing animals and eating their bodies is wrong in my opinion. How can killing ever be ethical or humane?

No. Even if I wasn’t scared of meat and it wasn’t a major fear food, I wouldn’t. Nothing gives me the right to take the life of another sentient creature. (Except maybe self defense). There’s no “humane” way to kill something that does not want to die.

Nope. Eating animals wrong. End of as far as I’m concerned.

Definitely not. I’d eat a fucking human before I’d eat a poor defenseless animal (that’s just me though lmaoo)

I still eat dairy and eggs (eggs are from my very spoiled, happy chickens who started laying today!), and I already feel guilty about eating dairy products from animals that I’m not sure are being treated well.

I don’t think I would eat meat in the foreseeable future, even if it met the quota. Beef is a fear food, pigs are too intelligent to be killed and eaten, I adore my pet chickens and picture their adorable faces every time I see someone eating it, shrimp/fishing boats cause a lot of environmental damage/problems and I don’t want to support that, etc...

No. Humans aren’t meant to eat meat. I will never eat meat/fish/animal again in my life. It is unnatural. Our teeth are not hunter teeth. Our teeth doesn’t kill.

Seeing cattle sometimes makes me cry because I get the thought “they only exist for someone’s pleasure/to be slaughtered”

As most of the people here.. No, I wouldn't. It just doesn't make sense to me why would someone want to eat animal products ..

Same! Meat just makes me sick so I stopped eating it when I was like 11 and I doubt I'll ever eat it again at this point, whether it's "ethical" or not  :lol:

Honestly yeah. I prefer to put my health first than "ethics". I know it may sound too wrong, but well, I'm constantly changing.

This forum is mainly for people who are vegetarian and vegan but that doesn’t exclude everyone else from looking at this forum. Also people who are vegan/vegetarian for health or ED reasons do exist.

And they didn’t state they weren’t vegetarian or vegan.

I don’t know what you meant with your question but to me it seemed like you were telling them they’re not welcome because they have other beliefs than yours. It didn’t sit right with me. Sorry if I misunderstood.

Big no.
Its extremely unhealthy , and the animals have rights. Just because they dont look and talk like we do doesnt mean we can eat them.
