Where it Comes From
I hate preaching. When people ask me why I'm a vegetarian I usually say something like, "For humanitarian reasons." And then I try to drop the subject. If I say any more than that it always sounds like I'm preaching. If the conversation does go further, however, it oftentimes ends with the other person saying that they would rather not think about where their meat comes from.
Me neither. No one likes thinking about hellish brutality very much. I just wonder what the world might be like if everyone thought even a little bit about things they would prefer to ignore.
Here's the article that inspired this drawing, if you're interested.
