Indeed. I love meat. I love it a lot.
But the extraordinary brutality of factory farms is too much. I remember when that one video of a cow being mistreated went viral about 8 or 9 years back— my Southern-born-and-raised mother went vegetarian for several weeks just because of it. She ultimately relapsed back into carnivorism (and I was much too young to know or really care, so I went on eatin' meat), but I hafta admit, the number of vegetarians and vegans that video created is impressive. I know some people who are still either vegetarian or vegan.
