So, I've heard everything when it comes to why people justify why they eat meat.

They say, well, in nature, these animals would have been eaten anyhow. In nature, severe special needs children would have been eaten.

They say, how do you know if an animal feels pain or not, it can't communicate. Neither can severe special needs kids.

They say, animals have lower intelligence. So do severe special needs kids.

... The list goes on. But we don't pen up special needs kids for life and eat them. So why, if you have compassion on these kids, who are in many ways inferior to other humans, do you have no compassion for animals, who are in many ways inferior to other humans? A livestock yard is about as in-compassionate as you could get.

I'm not talking about kids who have a mild disorder. I'm talking the severe cases. You know the differences.

I eat meat. No justification is necessary.

Plants have feelings too.


Weeping willows make me sad.

You are mostly talking about animals bred solely for the purpose of being food. What would you have us do? Release all the cows, chickens, and pigs? They're not suitable for the wild, and very expensive to raise with no profit motive. If you want to be a vegan, that's fine, but others don't share your view.
