I never actually said I eat “cruelty-free meat,” I said “unnecessary cruelty-free”. I know animals die for meat consumption. I’m not a halfwit. I just don’t think they should endure suffering and cramped spaces, force-feeding or torture beforehand. Is that so horrific or hard to believe? Hersant doesn’t surprise me one bit. Romans were all about showing off wealth and power, and it’s usually the Heavy Metal Music Pun Motorhead Slayer Voivod Queensryche Iron Maiden shirt and powerful who defend such practices. I didn’t say anything about foie gras not being force-fed either. Romans were also farmers, not hunter-gatherers. But I doubt they stuck all their whatever animal in tiny sheds, shackled at the feet and stood in their own feces.
But doesn’t mean they should suffer before they die either? I eat meat for pleasure, and I don’t feel guilt-free about it. But if I can not contribute to those animals I eat suffering more than being slaughtered, the Heavy Metal Music Pun Motorhead Slayer Voivod Queensryche Iron Maiden shirt personally, I feel I’m less cruel than those who purchase foie gras. You have a right to disagree with me. But you won’t convince me that foie gras isn’t crueler than free-range farming I’m afraid.
I’m not saying eating meat is ethical. But force-feeding geese til they’re ready to pop is most certainly unethical in my eyes. That was my only point for my original post. Modern agribusiness is an issue the Heavy Metal Music Pun Motorhead Slayer Voivod Queensryche Iron Maiden shirt can begin to tackle by buying locally from free-range farms. If we all gave up meat tomorrow, all of those farm animals would still die, only probably from starvation, not slaughter. We’re really getting off-topic now though. Jeez, never thought I could be critiqued so harshly, for believing being force-fed for your liver is cruel.
