75. Thank you.

"Idiot" is rather gentle for whoever said it, though.

If everyone just cut back on meat consumption - "less meat" rather than obligate "meatless" diet - it would make a huge positive impact for all species. Anyone just needs to observe nature a little bit to understand the food chain. One can eat some meat and still strive for relatively cruelty-free sourcing of it. So, one can care and still consume some meat; and certainly one can care about a lot of things, and none of us are pure in every way.

If supporting the human population on the planet would require 100% of us be vegan, than that population number is too high. (it is already anyway, but that's a whole separate, and unpleasant, subject)

But if someone IS a vegan (as I presume you are, from your screen name), GREAT!! That helps cover for the folks who haven't learned the less-meat way yet.
