no.

for me it is like asking if someone raised a human nicely and feared for them and then killed them but in a painless and kind way, to est them, would it still be bad?

it doesnt matter how kindly animals are killed, they are still being killed for the sole reason of satisfying a humans stomach. i think its selfish to end someones life to just satisfy your needs if eating something you like.

any animal killing or abuse is wrong

Nope. I’d only eat lab grown meat. I’d have to know 100% that no animal had to suffer just to give me something to eat :/

-You personally know the person raising the cattle

No, just because I know the person raising them doesn't mean I agree with it.
-Youve seen the animals and their environment

Again, I don't care. The animals could be in the most amazing environment and I STILL would not eat meat
-You know what they eat

Nope, nope, nope
-They are put to sleep before transport and sleeping during

They've been proven to feel scared, again nope
-You have seen the locker and ethics kept there

No matter how well they're kept they're still being kept for someone to eat them
-The meat is minimally processed

No
-There is no waste- all of the animal is eaten/used

I've heard this argument before and the only way it rings true or genuine to me is in survival situations or back before we became a developed country.

Definitely not. The main reason why I don't eat meat is I'm totally against killing animals. It doesn't matter how they're killed, to me they just shouldn't be.

No... it isn't necessary to kill and eat anyone no matter what when you can get vegan options everywhere now. It's morally wrong and that is all that is wrong in the world. People seem to accept killing and i don't want to be a part of it. The dairy and egg industries are the worst because they use & exploit the cows and chickens their whole lifetime until they are tired or too depressed and cannot reproduce anymore, then they are slaughtered.

Vegan for the animals. 

Veganism is not a diet, it is a principle.

I love animals, so i do not eat them or wear them or exploit them in any way.

I do not support animal abuse, so I avoid paying for any animal products from the meat, dairy, fish & egg industries.

Be kind to all kinds of beings, eat more plants.

Quick note about the psychopathy that is "treating the animals so well happy life lots of cuddles uwu so ethical buuuut I'll kill you when you're still young because that's when your meat is tender. Also, I'll take your kid away because we just needed you to lactate (humanely)".

I’m definitely not reading the comments

I love meat and am mostly carnivore keto-er
It has helped me feel better when eating and I DEFINITELY don’t have to binge it to be satisfied unlike carbs and junk food.
If steak and crab legs were cheaper I would live on only steak tbh
I absolutely love it. Always will.

Absolutely not. There is no such thing as humane slaughter. It’s still taking an innocent, sentient beings life away and manipulating the female body (eggs and milk) for your own gain even though it’s not as healthy as eating plants.
With that being said- I totally understand that your parents have more control over your diet than you do so I’m not judging you for not being able to be full vegan. Most vegans I know grew up that way and some friends I have who depend on their parents to buy them groceries can’t really expect someone to go out of their way to buy a whole different meal plan just for them.

I understand you love the taste of meat, but what about the animals feelings? Do you condone animal abuse? Do you condone the violence and suffering of someone just because you like how they taste? Have you watched Earthlings?

I’m just speaking for the victims. Please don’t hate me

No hate. I don’t see animals The same way you do. It’s totally fine. I don’t approve of animal abuse but that doesn’t prevent me from getting meat at a meat market. and no “I wouldn’t eat my pets” or whatever else someone wants to try to accuse me of, but hell I’d try human flesh if it was legal and could be cooked appropriately. I can’t do carbs anymore - or I just can’t stop them. It’s a never ending binge if I eat carbs, especially processed factory created shit. Protein via animal sources is the only way I can be healthy, mind and body. If I had money for a farm I’d raise my own and do it myself. It’s a part of nature to me, I apologize if that hurts someone’s feelings here but if it wasn’t for meat none of us would be here. Our ancestors had to eat something to survive. I prefer it this way.

Nope.  I've seen too many videos of mama pigs or mama cows screaming as their babies are taken from them.  (Plus, I never really liked the taste anyway.)  I always think about how the thing I'm eating used to have eyes, a family, and a life, and a soul, and it makes me super nauseous and so so incredibly sad.

Personally no but I’d be happier if other people ate meat like that vs factory farmed animals. I just wouldn’t be able to do it in any case and I never liked the taste of beef in the first place

Interestingly, my choice was made slightly later in life (early twenties from memory), and it was because my bf at the time decided he wanted to go vegan.  I suppose you could say my original thoughts behind it were purely dietary health driven (within a recovery from heavily restricting).  Once I started to do a lot more research into it I started to see my choice wasn't just the diet.  I can't condone taking any form of a life for any reason, I don't believe that is my choice to make.

 

I love mock meats, I love (good) dairy alternatives that actually taste somewhat like dairy (cheese has been a forever struggle as I went from vegan to vegetarian and now trying to go back to vegan, I never found a good vegan cheese).

 

Getting back to the question of whather I would eat meat again, as someone else mentioned, 100% lab grown and zero lives taken (and depending on how you look at that you may have a very different opinion on whether or not it has cost lives to produce that, just as farming vegan crops takes the lives of insects etc.) I think would be acceptable to me, I'm just not sure how I'd feel while eating it. The psychological effect of eating it again, chewing on flesh, tasting real meat...yeah, I dunno about that one.

No, because the animal would die for my „pleasure“ (yuck, even thinking that word in that context! :x) nonetheless. No animal (with the exception of insects, as they involuntarily die when crop is being harvested) will ever have to die again for my choice of eating. 
 

I couldn’t eat meat or eggs or dairy anymore, anyway. It’s too disgusting. One exception is fish, but only a few and little.

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 because humans are not physiologically designed to digest meat. It causes inflammation and other health problems

I would only eat meat again if my life depended on it. I don't care as much about the life of the animal as I care about the environment/health (maybe that makes me a bad person idk, at the end of the day I don't eat them anyway) and the life of the animal isn't going to have an impact on the industry as a whole. there's so much waste that goes into and out of industrial animal farming: crops that could be eaten directly, land that could be used for crops (and cutting down forests for it), water for crops and animals, transportation, excess medication (causing resistance to antibiotics etc) and not using every part of every animal when we've already wasted so much. for me it's about the bigger picture. also meat makes me sick now lol
