ok, i voted.

no problem here eating veal.

while they might be cute, they're too tasty to get all sentimental about it.

ya know, dominion over animals, and all that.

I couldn't vote IC... there wasn't the option which I would fit in...

"I eat it but I try hard not to think about what I am doing"

I know I can be hypocritic... calfs are so cute and so are the piglets... however I can handle eating them (if I don't think about it, and the meat is perfectly filleted and there is no obvious, visible suggestion of its former life) because I have been eating them since I was very little and accustomed to the idea of them being food as well.

On the other hand, rabbits, deer, lamb, horse etc. which were later introduced to me as food after I have grown my conscience against unnecessarily butchering and eating beautiful animals, I just can't bring myself to eat it, even I am sure they taste good to many people. I know I am inconsistent in my "ethics" so I would never try to preach other people, I just settle for having it be one of my whims....

I NEVER eat veal - haven't eaten it since I was about 15 and watched a documentary on how the meat was raised in certain European countries, milk-fed, crated... BLECH...

But, I do sometime cook 'veal' dishes, and substitute thinly cut pork escalopes for the veal, for instance in Wiener Schnitzel style dishes.

And, I would never presume to tell others what they can and can't eat - even when they choose to eat Mcdonalds hamburgers, for instance

Hey Izzy, McDonald's hamburgers are good! Almost as good as slyders from White Castle.
