John's point about animal cruelty in the other thread got me thinking about animal farming in the modern age.

I'm of the opinion that if people want to eat chocolate covered honey ants they should be allowed to, even if it holds no appeal for me. Similarly if someone wants a nice juicy steak or a plate of balsamic drizzled rocket it's nothing to do with me.

One of my friends is a vegetarian and is accommodating of others - including her husband who is not - not minding what others eat, just not eating meat herself.

Vegans, on the other hand, on social media seem to spend their time hectoring others about how inhumane it is to drink milk, eat meat, fish, cheese or butter. They seem to want to force everyone else down their restricted chosen path.

What do you think?

Jane's a veggie and I'm a typical cat... Meat'n'milk. ;)

My friend (Small "F"), Bryan, is a veggie, as he feels that killing animals is wrong. When I pointed out that he was wearing leather shoes, he didn't seem to understand my point...

This is as with religion, with me. Believe whatever you want. Just don't try to foist your beliefs on me.

Cheese and milk don't seem obvious candidates for objection; until you consider the fact that modern dairy farming means that cows are constantly pregnant and then lactating. I suppose there are worse things at sea but.

Other than that. I would back up what I said else where. Provided the animals are treated kindly (not to the point of not eating them) then I'm happy to eat meat. But its the "kindly" humanely test that is at issue.
