You know what pisses me off? Well, there are many things. But, I’m thinking about one thing in particular. Warning: Pretty serious bitching ahead.
I just deleted a comment on the post below. Some anti-meat preacher sent me a link to a video, telling me that I might want to know where my meat comes from. Oh, please. Does this guy really think that people who eat meat don’t know where it comes from? Does he think that I don’t know that most slaughter houses are based on efficiency only, with no regard for the animal or how it lives and dies? It ain’t magic. People are working to turn a profit. A lot of the time, it’s pretty ugly. I don’t think that this is the case 100% of the time. I mean, Dominion Farm and others do their best to make a good life for their animals. EatGreenDFW gives these great farmers and ranchers a place to sell their products. How does this guy know where I shop or what kind of meat I buy? And who is he to go around preaching to people who he doesn’t even know?
I don’t like preaching. What I believe is my business. And so is what I choose to eat. I don’t tell people who have other eating habits than mine that they’re wrong or missing out. It’s none of my business what other people eat. I admire a person for picking a plan and sticking to it, even if it is something I would never choose to do myself. But, frankly, I’m more worried about people starving than whether people eat veal, foix gras or freaking meatloaf.
There is a lot of injustice and ugliness in this world that we could all stand up against. I say go for it. But, don’t come knocking on my door to preach. I’ve already heard it. And if you think you’ve got something new to tell me, then wait until I ask. And if I don’t believe what you believe… too damned bad.
