Absolutly not. It's unethical. I know my cat has a good life, I would not eat her if she died.

+ I have not eaten meat for so long. I dont miss it, I remember it as kinda gross so I'd probably wouldn't eat labgrown meat either.

None of those factors would make a difference to me. I haven't eaten meat in 12 years, and meat is murder as far as I'm concerned.

-You personally know the person raising the cattle
No, because the animal doesn't want to die.
-You've seen the animals and their enviroment
No, because the animal doesn't want to die.
-You know what they eat
No, because the animal doesn't want to die.
-They are put to sleep before transport and sleeping during
No, because the animal doesn't want to die.
-You have seen the locker and ethics kept there
No, because the animal doesn't want to die.
-The meat is minimally processed
No, because the animal doesn't want to die.
-There is no waste- all of the animal is eaten/used
No, because the animal doesn't want to die.
Would you eat it then?
No, because the animal doesn't want to die.
The animal fights to the last breath. They scream, try to escape. They don't want to die, and I don't need to eat them.
Regarding the op - I am sympathetic to living with your parents though. In that situation I would just eat as vegan as I can as much as I can, try to educate them and sway them, offer to cook yummy vegan food to entice them towards my side, and eat vegan when I move out.

Nope, it wouldn't change anything for me.  Eating meat is still terrible for the planet (and personally I love pigs and cows)


That being said, I did used to eat chickens (raised from chick to adult on an open farm and butchered by family member so I knew they were not tortured) and wild game/fish (hunted/caught by me or family members) so I think something along those lines isn't horrible, in terms of carbon emissions and humane consumption.


But there is no ethical consumption under capitalism so the best we can aim for is harm reduction.  Which in this case means not eating meat. For instance, did you know cows have best friends?  Even in feed lots cows develop friendships and have "best friends" where they become stressed out/depressed if separated from them.

no, I don't eat meat because no sentient being wants to die just for me to eat. if lab grown meat became a thing where animals weren't killed or harmed or kept as lab rats then I'd consider it, but until then no. but I've also been vegan for so long that the idea of eating meat doesn't really appeal to me anymore, but if they found a way to make lab grown cruelty free eggs I'd 100% have a hard boiled egg.

No it isn’t about if animals are treated well! Treating animals well means not eating them. Ever. They live and die like people. Do you want an alien to eat you? To farm you? I think the original poster won’t answer this question. I wonder why! Go to ——————. Wtf.

I would still not eat meat in any or all of these circumstances. I don't think a living being should have to die or be exploited in order for me to eat something that isn't essential for my health or survival. Especially animals because they are more vulnerable and in a lower position than us, they should be protected and cared for, not slaughtered and exploited.

If this is a cultural thing such as those of many indigenous peoples and there were no other options available, then yes, I would eat meat under these circumstances out of respect. I have friends who are Native American, and these circumstances have historically been true, especially the use of the whole animal. Otherwise, no, I would not eat the meat. I'm not vegan for the animals like everyone keeps saying veganism is about. Some people do it for environmental reasons or health reasons or other personal reasons. Environmental is a big one for me as well as feeling better physically on a vegan diet. Yes, I love animals, but that reasoning, from certain cultural standpoints, does not resonate with me.

-You personally know the person raising the cattle

No. An animal is being tortured and murdered when there is absolutely no need for it. 

-You've seen the animals and their environment

No. That would make me feel even more horrible. Knowing that the animal was alive and well and it was going to get murdered for no reason. 

-You know what they eat

No. I know what my cat eats or what a panda eats, that doesn't have to do with me eating them. I don't care if they ate the most organic diet in the world. That doesn't really change things. 

-They are put to sleep before transport and sleeping during

No. How are you going to put an animal to sleep to kill it? If you have to think about putting an animal to sleep before killing it, then, you know the animal is going to suffer and die and you're not feeling good about it. 

-You have seen the locker and ethics kept there

No. There is no ethical to murder an animal for no reason. 

-The meat is minimally processed

No. Once again, that doesn't change anything.

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

No. An innocent animal is still going to be tortured and murdered for absolutely no reason at all.

No. If something like that was done to a human child I wouldn't eat the corpse. For the same exact reason I wouldn't eat non-human animals corpse.

Not really. Though moral reasons do play a card in my diet, I also do not really like the taste and texture of meat and as time went on I got to the point where I no longer see it as food, but just a piece of a dead animal, so it wouldn't make any difference how the animals were brought up.
