Well, a lot of people around me who are meat-eaters are seriously disturbed about the horse meat situation. How is eating a horse any worse than eating a factory farmed creature? It's not. It's only familiarity. We wouldn't eat a cat or a dog or a horse because we've learned to live with these creatures as companions. We find it repellent and upsetting. I am heartened that this upset has set some people questioning what they eat and why. Factory farms are cruel. And recent. And responsible for about 98% of the harmful methane gas destroying our ozone layer. I believe we should eat what our bodies require. But to gain your sustenance from the insufferable suffering of another animal? That's why I don't eat meat. So. Let's see. Why should horses and cats and dogs be immune when we feast upon everything else?

Both Man and Bird and Beast
