You have a pet though. What do you think about that? I think it is immoral to hold an animal in captivity, including pets - especially pets; as far as I'm concerned, human interaction with animals should be absolutely minimal. We should only take from them what we need to ensure our own survival (food, and I suppose clothing like leather and wool). Pet ownership is not something I will ever personally do because it is highly immoral for me. In doing so I would keep an animal in captivity in order to satisfy my own emotional needs. Satisfying emotions is not, for me, an essential thing that must be done in order to ensure my own survival like eating or clothing. I'm sure you can love and care for your pet and everything, but it's just a matter of principle for me - holding animals in captivity is wrong, doing anything to interfere with their lives is wrong, except when it is absolutely essential to your own survival.I just couldn't enjoy it anymore because it felt so morally wrong, so I stopped eating it altogether.
no. i guess i never really liked meat. one of my school principles was a vegetarian and gave a pro-vegetarian lecture in health class once and to me it made sense. (basically the human body wasn't designed to eat meat) after that i started really thinking about where my food was coming from and so i decided to stop eating meat. i ate snow crab legs the other day though. i did feel a little bad eating them but i think my chromium levels are down and my body was crying for it. stuff like veins in chicken breasts gross me out majorly and the thought of like heads being chopped off and stuff deters me from eating meat. i mean, i certainly hope i don't end up as food so i like to try and extend that to other living beings. i guess i don't have that killer/top of the food chain instinct.Why ?
