"All of us born into a dominant, meat-eating culture have inherited this paradoxical mentality: We know the animals we eat are individuals, yet we’d rather not know it. We’d feel guilty eating certain animals, yet we take pleasure consuming others. We cringe when faced with images of animals suffering, yet we dine on their bodies multiple times a day. We love dogs and eat pigs and yet we don’t know why..." ~Melanie Joy, from "Carnism: Why Eating Animals is a Social Justice Issue"
I would rather eat tofu than dead bodies. Every time I see the meat section of a grocery store, I see a morgue. Just look around the produce section. Many foods that most people eat are already vegan. ~KK
