It always boggled me how animals can get labelled with the word "humane" regarding their treatment, given the first give letters of that word. Furthermore how I can get more jailtime for kicking my neighbor's dog than I could his daughter with our justice system these days.
I suppose some will think this is cruel of me but I don't think an animal's life is on par with a human one. That doesn't mean I approve of violence towards animals but I don't get how people think it's worse than violence against other humans.
As for the whole process of synthetic meat.... I dunno, kinda grosses me out to be honest. It'll be years before a guy like me can try it though, so we'll see then. If that can provide an equal substitute then well... that would make everyone happy I suppose.
