    DH is a vegetarian, I am not. I've heard it all before.. "how can you eat one animal but are opposed to eating another?"
    I guess it's just what we've been told is socially acceptable and "right". I do eat lamb, but at the same time cannot eat "unusual meat" like Kangaroo/rabbit etc.. (I know rabbit is common for some, but I could never eat it!)


    As for those who question why we (meat eaters) don't eat just eat everything (offal, organs etc,), I guess that I'd say that just because I eat chicken doesn't mean I want to eat it's entire insides! (I'm not a vulture! The thought of eating an organ is just off putting for me.) Just the breast
    DH cannot understand how I can eat meat off the bone, either.. we just see things differently.. to me it's just food, to him it's "flesh". I understand it, but it's just the circle of life..

    for me, as with people, I think its more the quality of life than the duration. Id rather eat a young, 'ethically' raised and slaughtered animal (raised free range, and preferably home killed and butchered, by someone who knows its name and recognises that it is/was a living thing) than an older factory farmed, transported and abattoir killed animal.

    Oh Indonesia, the land where I learned just not to ask!
    (though after some explanation I was so glad to find out that the meat was guinea pig, not rat, which was my literal translation!)

    Yes. I dont eat Lamb or Veal. There is no need imo. Beef is good enough, dont need baby beef. And Lamb is just gross anyway.

    It's all the same meat is meat!!!

    I don't understand why vegetarians can eat fish tho??? If it's inhumane to eat normal meat eg. Chicken, beef, lamb.. Why isn't this the case for killing fish and eating it???

    i used to be vegan, i also used to be anorexic.....

    then i met hubby (a chef.....ha ha) and now i
    a) eat
    and
    b) eat meat.....

    i eat veal, spatchcock, anything......i am still fussy about food (tend to only like good steak cooked rare and nice, bloody and tender) and it is true. the younger the animal, the more tender and sweeter the meat.

    suckling pig....need i say more?

    i think as long as the animal has had a good life and been killed humanely then it's fine.

    Pescatarians eat seafood, vegetarians don't ( just dairy)
    I was vegetarian for 6 years, vegan for 1( too hard for me!) then started eating fish/shellfish , for me, it does not have the same tearing of the flesh feeling meat has plus my rules now are if I eat it I must be able to kill it ( we go fishing a lot!) ( but I do say a silent thank you for letting be eat you prayer when I kill a fish/lobster!)

    I would prefer guinea pig over rat or cat. I'm pretty sure I ate all of them over there

    I definitely agree with these sentiments, except the part about eating people
