I assume you eat vegetables too, just not exclusively.
So vegetable eating itself isn't the problem.

It's the anti-carnivore preaching.

Doubt they are any more opinionated than meat eaters like us really. We just have the privilege of being the status quo and hence have to express our opinions less often - or less vocally - or less noticeably.

Alas their opinions seem quite limited. I have tried to open discussions with them often as to why - morally speaking - I should not be eating meat or using animal products.

Instead they answer the same way pretty much every time - by showing issues with current farming practices. And I entirely agree with all those points! We need very much to improve that.

But issues with how we produce animal products - and issues about the use of animal products itself - are two different things. So every single time they are answering a question I have not actually asked.

So I continue to happily eat meat and use animal products - I just source those products as ethically as I possibly can while doing so.

You eat fruit and veg too!

Instead of focusing on our differences lets focus on our similarities.

...And mushrooms are closer to being animal than plants.
