I was talking to ganesa last night

Aaaaannd, well.

I'm going to stop eating animals. I'll still eat unfertilized eggs, things with living bacteria or yeasties, dairy. But no more fish, meat, poultry.

We did not discuss leather, but it's not like i buy permanent objects very often. I'll bring it up and see what kind of response i get.

The gist of it, as i understand it, is that i'm using up a lot of goodwill on killing animals, and things will be better if i am not spending all my mojo on meat. So yeah.

And the initial discussion is a year, that's what i am willing to commit to, but chances are that this will continue, assuming he holds up his end.

And it's not like i wasn't already aware of the results of eating mainstream factory-farmed meat, and the effects of modern fishing practices, and yada yada, it's not like i've felt okay about eating meat in the past many years, but i certainly do like the taste of bacon, and i tend to be pretty good at ignoring/rationalizing.

And yes, i know that properly managed methods are not unreasonable, but ganesa is also making the point that it is not just environmental, he wants me to kill fewer things.

And it's hard to argue with that.

Oh, and i'm not going to preach at you, it's okay, you can still eat a bacon double cheeseburger. I just won't.
