This is not something new, I started to read about it a few years ago, but it’s something that is becoming more and more usual: people are eating meat again after years of vegetarianism because of the ‘happy meat‘. I still want to write a post about that, but I need more time. So I will just post today a piece of two articles of the website Animal Rights: The Abolitionist Approach.
“(…) She was a vegetarian for 10 years but now she has gone back to eating meat. Deacon is a “conscientious omnivore” who illustrates the problem with the “happy” meat approach that has overtaken the animal movement. (…)” (Animal Rights: The Abolitionist Approach – Feb/07)
“The writer, Tessa Williams, proclaims that after 25 years as a vegetarian, she is now eating meat again. (…) This is where the happy meat/animal products movement is leading. And it is certainly not confined to Britain. (…)” (Animal Rights: The Abolitionist Approach – Feb/09)
This is something I can’t understand. This is a step back for all these years of vegetarianism and animal rights fights.
What do you think about it?
