I just wanted to see that title out there somewhere in the internets.

I stopped eating meat 6 years ago (give or take). I may or may not eat meat in the future, the jury is still out on that.

That being said, I wish people who do eat meat stood up for animals as much, if not more so, than vegetarians and vegans. I believe that someone out there is profiting hugely from the lack of decent, honest, informed conversation about this. On the one hand the veggies out there can get militant. On the other hand, meat eaters have low tolerance for being told their diet is 'destroying the world'. Somewhere in between is a common ground that we're not being allowed to reach, for some reason.

Wouldn't it be great if you could eat or not eat animals and whatever animals who were eaten lived a great life and died quiet deaths?

I've started to get the feeling that I shouldn't really be the one always having to defend animal welfare as a good thing, as I don't even eat the animals who arrive at the table. The people most interested in assuring a decent life for animals are the people whose flesh and blood are made up of animals.

Perhaps the debate is so skewed that something like this would seem ridiculous, but that's kind of my point. I'm glad to see that there are people out there who can have a healthy discussion about it whether they eat meat or not. I'm also glad that there are people who raise animals out there who really care about good animal welfare.
