Should meat eaters feel bad?

0 votes

I'm a vegetarian and have been for quite some time, and I've always tended to stick with the belief that this is my choice and I shouldn't be pushy on other people. However recently I've been thinking about how people might have their right to a choice, but should that really be the case when that choice leads to thousands upon thousands of needless deaths? I mean meat's rather bad for you anyway, and I don't see how anyone can consider it morally right to industrialise muder on such a scale, just to eat when we don't even need it, and in fact would be better off without it.
I hate myself for saying such preachy things but I can't help but think I'm right, is this bad?
Update: I don't really think meat eater is the wrong definition. If you eat meat then that makes you a meat eater.. It doesn't mean you're not an omnivore.

I don't think eating meat is necessarily a bad thing. However, it is the manner in which it is being mass produced that is! That being said, most of the meat individuals consume fuel this meat industry monster.

Many commenters are under the imperession that animals are treated and killed humanely in *slaughter* houses. That notion is illogical given that millions of animals are bred and killed every single day. It would cost the industries too much money and effort for this to even be a consideration.

All in all, I don't think anyone *should* feel a certain way about eating meat; I think given the means by which meat (and dairy) products are produced, individuals who consume them have reason enough to feel guilty. As you've seen not every omnivore feels bad about continuing to consume meat.

The best route isn't to accuse anyone of being wrong for having a certain diet. Continue your diet and let that speak for itself. Spread your lifestyle by example not by preaching :)
